    Exactly... I saw a sign somewhere a few days ago by Sony, saying something along the lines of... "professional has gone compact", so these people aren't entirely to blame, they're sold a lie to start with...

    I am looking at her other videos... she HAS to be pretending. Nobody is that stupid! Check out her video on the "importance of accessories": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7rymjezXGU and tell me she isn't taking the total piss out of us.

    We waz trolled. I think. O_o

    A write-up on the MWACAttack phenomenon: http://kevinnewsome.wordpress.com/20...-accurate-one/ Now that I have been reassured that it's satire, I think it's hilarious. XD

    I am actually quite relieved to find it was a satire. Suspected as much, but wasn't 100% certain. Phew.

    Quotes from Phil's here link, "Is editing an overrated waste of time? You may know this already. (workshop cancelled)", and
    "The Rule of Thirds - You may have heard of this one and the accompanying myth that it's got something to do with composition. No no no! That's what we want you to think. The rule of thirds is the rule that any fees or associated costs go up by a third when anybody mentions the word wedding."
