The debate between Canon vs Nikon rivals the storied old debates such as republican vs democrat, Honda vs Toyota and Macintosh vs PCs.
Well, maybe not the latter because there is no question that Macs are far superior to PCs.
I’m a Canon user myself. Always have been. And that’s not going to change anytime soon.
I’m also a Honda driver. Always have been. And while that may change in the future, I’d rather spend my money on a new camera than a new car at this point in my life.
And we all know I probably won’t change my liberal leanings anytime soon.
Anyway, a group of photographers created the above video where they pitted Canon users against Nikon users, depicting Canon users as American commandos trying to save a kidnapped girl at the hands of Nikon users, who are depicted as Muslim terrorists, specifically Palestinians because they are wearing keffiyehs on their heads (That, of course, is another topic of debate as you will read in the comments).
And let’s not even get into the Palestine vs Israel debate. That one can get ugly as we can see in this article I wrote a few years back.
But even though it’s not the most politically correct video, it was very well-done and required a lot of imagination and ingenuity.
And we all know depicting Nikon users as terrorists is hogwash. Just ask any cop and he would tell you that we’re all terrorists, regardless of camera brand.
