Watch HSN try to sell a Canon Rebel T3i and laugh


Chris Gampat The Phoblographer T3i T3 dslr (2 of 4)

The Phoblographer:

We as photographers all know better than the average consumer looking to just have a DSLR, but if you’re looking for a laugh this afternoon, then you should take a look at the video after the jump featuring the Home Shopping Network attempting to sell the Canon Rebel T3i back in 2012.

Some of the best highlights? They call it a flagship camera, say that professionals use it, and say that a Canon lens is being used to film them despite said lens being a multi-thousand dollar video lens. But the overall marketing is just so blatantly forced and fake that you can’t help but crack up and think of the poor helpless folks that they’re targeting.

To be fair, the camera is quite good considering that the camera is one of Flickr’s most popular DSLR and that it still holds up even today when they’ve announced the T6i.

Olympus (Japan) OM-D E-5 Mark II

Olympus has announced the OM-D E-5 Mark II, a classic SLR camera that is smaller and lighter, yet packed with technical refinements. Trading in the previously utilized 16MP output for 40MP, images are sharper and more detailed than ever before. Blurry photos are a thing of the past thanks to the built-in stabilizer.

With each click, a burst of eight images are captured, which are then combined to create one incredibly clear snapshot. The shutter speed sees an improvement too with a 1/16000 second close time, which means during burst mode it is possible to capture 10 frames per second. The large viewfinder now operates at a higher resolution of 1024×768 pixels and the camera as a whole is water-resistant and can withstand drops of over 6 feet.

The Olympus OM-D E-5 Mark II is set for a late-February release, starting at $1,250 USD.
