Cameras as Donuts - Thom Hogan

Thom Hogan had this excellent little post on his blog today:

Camera Users Explained

Oct 16, 2012 (commentary)--Rick Sammon recently made a very cogent post that perfectly explains social media in a few words. I was immediately struck by what would happen if we applied this type of definitional logic to camera users:
  • Nikon DSLR user: look at all these pixels of my donut
  • Canon 5DIII user: see the video of my donut
  • Crop sensor user: couldn't take a wide angle shot of the donut with a prime lens
  • m4/3 user: the donut is bigger than my camera
  • NEX user: the donut resembles my main camera control
  • D800 user: with three donuts, I can't focus on the left one
  • Fujifilm user: love donuts, they're so retro
  • Pentax DSLR user: I'd rather have pancakes
  • Full frame users: my donuts are bigger than yours
  • MF users: you call that wimpy thing a donut?
  • Compact user: can we move the donut into brighter light?
  • Cell Phone user: Facebook post: here I am eating my donut

I thought his comment on Pentax users was quite apt!
