Well, how about my daughter for the Sony Poster Girl? I'm her agent and am willing to close the deal for about 60% of what they are paying Swift!

My daughter would settle for a chocolate chip cookie.

Chocolate Chip Cookie!


Hmmmmm - models these days have such extravagant demands!

I'm not sure Sony could stretch their budget that far in these difficult times...


..they will have to make do with that Swift person....


Shame - 'cos your little one would certainly sell more cameras!

No "Stars"...
I must say I do like the new Nikon print ads.. They have a nice photo of the camera and the main specs of that camera model.


I think is quite an extrapolation that the use of a star takes away from the R&D budget.

More than likely the Marketing "Dudes" (with respect) just chose to allocate a more than typical amount of a fixed budget, assigned to that camera, for a higher level symbol... They could have taken the same amount of money to send a mail flyer to the post box of every G20 country.. It is neither here nor there on what the camera does...

It is like saying .. Darn it could have been a 36Mpix device but we had to pay for Taylor Swift with 12 Mpix...

I often said that Sony's ad campaigns are next to non existent ... And Have thought about shooting several ideas for commercials and submitting them to Sony. .. Who better to talk about a Sony than the people who love the camera in the first place... we have all been asked the age old question.. "WHY SONY?"

   I hate this, but a lot of these "NEW Photographers" buy a camera to take better photos thinking that somehow the Skill will magically appear with that extra 10 MP over the last year's model. In reality SONY is providing a camera that virtually shows you what you will get BEFORE you take the shot... Couple that with the High MP and gadget features like all the Scene modes... you have a camera that a lot of NEW photographers can really use out of the box. I hate this, but it is a fact of life as we know it. Camera Companies need to make $$ and the more they make the more products they can release for more SERIOUS Users...

Why not Sony Users create an Ad campaign for much less than they are paying Taylor Swift... I know if I saw a commercial with REAL USERS made by real users it would go a lot farther in my appeal for that product...

Interesting. Thom thinks Swift's ads do a better job than Kutcher's ads. But the guy needs to get his facts straight. Swift, at 22, is no where near 30. "Both stars are in their 30's"...

The nex and aps-c camera that most of us have are fine... Its the Full-frame alpha mounts that need additional models / Lenses..
Looks like Sony is focusing on Best Buy Shoppers and Taylor Swift fans
(Who use iphones and (Lame) Instagram for their photos needs)...

Sony... Taylor Swift.. Really ?
The female version of Justin Bieber???
Please stop paying her to damage your credibility in the "Professional" market and focus on the "Professional" minded buyers... PLEASE.

And Ashton Kutcher is really helping the Nikon Pro DSLR line? Swift is pushing NEX if I am not mistaken, not DLSR/DSLT's.
