    I was in the one and only Target yesterday when I came across the following. In the picture frame section they had a million different frames with this shot in it. "Nikon F blackout with well placed shooting finger" is my guess at the title of the shot. Anyone else?

    Man, you'd have to press really hard there to release the shutter! In this day and age, a Nikon FTN? Odd marketing.

    I have to admit I was glad to see the camera, but it's too bad they covered up the logo and didn't care for accuracy! At least they could have left the "F" visible...

    I saw that same item a couple of months ago and mentioned to my wife who was unimpressed that I could recognize an unmarked Nikon. I missed the fact that the model is not actually using the shutter button, however.

    Who the hell cares about the logo and why? You'd think the fool who took the shot would have corrected the shutter finger, though.

    I get it...That's the NEW Nikon F...The one that's sterile, and has the new feature, that no-matter where you push on the camera, the shutter will release.:D.:D.

    It's not a Nikon!!!


    If it was, it would clearly say so in white letters on the front...

    I often get amused (and sometimes annoyed) when an advertising photo has a glaring inaccuracy - for example, I often see photos of someone holding a fishing rod with the reel in the wrong position.

    But this is even worse, since presumably a professional photographer took the photo.

    Well...

    Since it is not a Nikon (see above), speculations about putting the finger in the wrong place are just that: speculations.
    And because presumably a professional photographer directed the shot, we can indeed assume that it is in the right place.


    Right?

    Saw an ad on TV the other night and a lady was using a Hasselblad to snap shoot the kids out doors. Probably all fuzzy-wuzzy because she was using the film advance to focus.
