An iPhone 5 That Can Shoot Single-Shot Panoramas and Act As Its Own Monopod

Here’s something to give you a chuckle as we head into the weekend. It’s a parody iPhone 5 commercial that pokes fun at the fact that the phone has been stretched out in height without any change in width.

Clever Commercial Idea for the Olympus OM-D Mirrorless Camera

Here’s a brilliant spoof advertisement for the Olympus OM-D mirrorless camera, created “for fun with a friend” by YouTube user spoofyoof (either that, or as a sneaky viral video). It features a simple, yet creative, twist.

Some people think you need a big heavyweight camera to take big heavyweight pictures. Well, not anymore. Meet Olympus OM-D. Small camera, big pictures.

Smaller and lighter cameras are something that’s a huge part of the ongoing mirrorless camera movement, so some camera company should definitely take this idea and turn it into an actual commercial.

Only the Human Eye Focuses Faster

Check out this blast from the past: it’s a 1986 commercial for the Minolta Maxxum 7000.

The Minolta 7000 was the first successful auto focus SLR using a motor integrated in the camera body. It was released in 1985 together with 11 lenses, 2 flashguns and a complete lineup of accessories. The 7000 featured one AF-sensor, shutter speeds of 1/2000 to 30 seconds, flashsync speed of 1/100s, exposure compensation of +-4EV in 0.5 exposure steps, center-weighted lightmetering and two frames per second film advance.

The AF system was marketed as Maxxum in North America and Alpha (α) in Asia. When Sony acquired Konica Minolta in 2006, it kept the Alpha brand name for its new DSLR system, which used the old Minolta lens mount. Hence, Sony Alpha DSLRs.

A Commercial for Fotoshop by Adobé

Filmmaker Jesse Rosten created this satirical commercial for Fotoshop by Adobé with the tagline “This commercial isn’t real, neither are society’s standards of beauty.” It’s a humorous response to how the beauty industry has distorted our society’s perception of beauty through ubiquitous Photoshopping. The video may or may not be work safe, depending on where you work.
