TinEye: Sleuth in Advertising

Camera shopping is hard work. Over the past ten years I’ve purchased three digital cameras, and each purchase was more difficult than the last. Thankfully sites like Digital Photography Review, and Steve’s Digicams have made it easier because the camera companies are not exactly objective.

The DSC-T3 viewfinder image is a film-camera stock photo that predates the DSC-T3 by years.

One thing I learned today is that camera manufacturers don’t necessarily use images that come from their cameras. For example, this Sony DSC-T3 viewfinder implies that the image is being captured by the camera. In actual fact, it’s a photodisc stock photo that predates the camera by years, and was likely taken with a film camera costing thousands.

See the original TinEye query that inspired this post! And uh oh, there are others.
