Olympus Isn’t a Fan of Instant Noodles

Here’s another ad from Olympus’ Get a Real Camera campaign spotted by Mark Matthews in Australia. Pretty funny, though it might not be the best ad for college students who live on instant noodles (and love it).

    Honestly, if I want a real camera I get a Canon or a Nikon, not an Olympus…

    Your comment is still a symptom of the problem.  As Dana’s link says, it’s not about the brand or type of camera, the camera can’t save you from yourself.

    @Petapixel: I think you didn’t understood what they meant here. They didn’t say that two minutes noodles are bad, they said it’s just not really what we call “cooking”!!!! So nothing against student’s best meal ;)
    But what they’re really wrong about here is that the camera is not Photography, it’s just an instrument!

    From one side pictures don’t come from the camera but from your vision of things, but from the other side you need a good camera to archive what do you have in your mind

    There’s nothing about that idea that requires a camera of a specific brand.

    I love both ramen and my Iphoneography!  It sounds like some desperation coming from a dying product line.

    RIP Olympus – you missed the point ….. again

    Hm.. I guess in Oly’s terms my Sony HX5V is like doner kebap then. Well, here in Germany we love döner – it’s our fave fast food. I’m wondering in which category a Olympus VG-130 could be. Fries or even Chicken McNuggets?

      And the little green robots are doing the same thing to some phones I hear.  850,000 Androids are activated per day. 

    Give it a year and there will a new  ‘next big thing’.  Maybe those Google wearable info glasses with built in EVERYTHING will completely replace phones as we know them.

    Camera phones are very useful, but ‘real’ cameras sure make it easier to shoot fast and change from one mode to the other and have more creative effects available to them.
