Licking One's Lens! What! Really?

This is old news with the controversial video by Canon shooter with a Nikon Girl licking on a Canon camera and lens. I have this blog post to report




Licking One's Lens! What! Really?






I personally love lighter and more compact gear.

Thanks,
Hin

Not really a rumor, but I had fun again reading your blog. Do you know that you are my favourite Pentax blogger?
Really.

Thank you guys for the support!



Large does not equal superiority





and Small does not equal mediocrity





let our images speak for our loyalty




It is important that Pentaxian be proud of our gear
The rest speaks in the images
Who cares what other brands loyalist think of Pentax
No Licking Required

I actually know of someone on another photo board I frequent who has admitted licking the glass of the lens to clean it (followed by t-shirt wiping, I think), but the side of the lens (as in the video)? YucK!

I love the fact that the only photos shown in the video are Polaroids.

The irony in this video is that his 1DS MarkIII makes his pictures look so unique (the tool doesn't even know that there are not varying degrees of unique...it means one of a kind) when Canon keeps hosting these zoo shoots. It got to be such a frequent thing that a Canon shooting customer of mine wrote a song about it. He used the tune of "Let's go to the hop". The opening lyric is:

Let's go to the zoo
Let's go to the zoo
I don't know shit about cameras
But I wanna take pictures like you.

This video is hysterical.

Here is the plot from Hin the clueless director who never make any movie or video clip with any significance.

I run low on budget. So you Pentax die-hard fans really got to help me out with the execution. If I can borrow a pretty model from Benjamin Kanarek, I will. But again, plane flight and pennies compensation is out of the question. I have low or NO budget. I can borrow 7 cats from my neighbor and try to train at least one of them to lick on a Canon and Nikon lens. It ain't sexy for sure! But it will be more disgusting and funny. Find me a cool dude or a nerd for modeling among 7 cats on a training lesson in licking the Canikon kit's plastic lens for cleansing and polishing. The plot has to do away with lens cleansing the dumbest or dirtiest way we can think of besides the pretty girl. The point is just plain hysterically funny.









































I am just joking, I have no time for this ......

Joey L's work speaks for it's self. He is a Very Creative photog. He has done all of the Posters for the Twilight Movies traveled all over the world shooting his Own Art. He is cocky, but he is good!

He has had some Major success at a very young age! Making fun of a Pentax at the end was a joke as he has Admitted! Kids you know they dont know any better,

Adam, thank you for your support. I know that you don't use your 645N much. I hope to convince you to put it into good use. It is bit too big and heavy for me, and I wish Pentax shrink it down in size. But I do love the bigger negatives that comes with it so that the digital scans done at home is not too shabby











Many of the Pentax faithfuls complain about Pentax not going FF and many other things. I for one salute to them for what they have achieved with gear that are unique, compact in size, and not cutting us deep on backward incompatibility issues. Of course, we have dozen of other things to whine about.

Professionals who stick with MF in 645 and 67 will likely swear by their loyalty on the MF gear from Pentax, and we surely hope that 645D will do better and more for Pentax and its fans.

It is time to enjoy your Pentax not just on digital but perhaps occasionally on that film you have not yet attempted ...... Films can be beautifully unique.

Warmest,
Hin

i could never get to like his work. He is extremely good at post processing but very short on creativity part. I hardly remember any of his photo that make me jump out of my chair.

He seems to nice guy though.

PS: funny thing is he is already aware of this criticism.
