    so the feature only works on women with shortened hair who are not allowed to eat until after the shoot. Great.

    This ad gives the impression that portrait lighting works on video..

    I tried using Portrait Mode in video and there is no option to do so....ONLY in Portrait Mode. So how did they record that video using all the Portrait Modes?

    Lol. Shutter sounds are clearly heard around second 19 of the ad. I'm not sure I can or want to help you anymore than that.

    Again, you're not listening. I said "as she WALKS", which is the first 18 seconds. Yes, at 19 seconds, there are plenty of loud shutters heard, even the deaf can hear them. But I ain't talkin about those. I'm talkin about zero shutters during the first 18 seconds, which implies it works with video.

    To recap:

    #asSheWALKS
    #first18Seconds
    #zeroShutters
    #worksWithVideo

    Capisce?

    This kind of photography is my favourite
    Almost every picture looks like an art, opposed to over saturated pop effects

    Bingo. At first I thought it was a trailer for a horror flick. Sorry but I find the model very unsettling.

    Uhh no.

    You replied to my point Of

    "There is even a shutter sound in the ad, something you don't hear when filming a video."

    With
    "No, dude, you are trippin'. As she walks, there is absolutely no shutter sound heard. Perhaps you hear them in your head? That's a whole different issue though."

    You also hash tagged Zeroshutters, yet we agree there are shutter sounds.

    So to recap-
    I made a claim that shutter sound could be heard in the ad.

    You said I was wrong based on some "straw-man" argument that the sound was not at a certain specific point in time when she was walking. (which I made I made no mention of ???)

    I called you on it.

    You said I wasn't listening which is humorous, because you were the one currently smack in the middle of a whole not listening fest.

    I called you on it again.

    Dude, we were talking about the first two thirds of the ad where absolutely zero shutters are heard, while you were talking about the last third of the ad. We're on two different pages. Case closed.

    Portrait lighting is good, but it only works when taking pictures outdoors in good light.
    I'm quite happy with my 8+ camera but they need to improve low light pictures, the telephoto lenses don't have OIS and I can really feel it.
    X will be better, but I'm not sure how much better.
