So I've been on Amazon dreaming about equipment upgrades, and ended up looking at Lecias and Hasselblads. What I didn't expect to find were these "reviews." Thought I'd share some here:
"I purchased this camera in lieu of paying rent on my apartment for 4 years, and believe me when I say it was worth it. I used the box that it came in as a hat and some other boxes for a home. It's uncomfortable but the pictures I've taken of my new home are so sharp that you can see the fleas on the brick I use for a pillow. I can also take high detail pictures of my children (who I am no longer able to see due to court order resulting from gross negligence) from an acceptable distance. Highly recommended!"
"I used the money from my daughters college funds to pay for this item and I must say that it came in the greatest quality box I have ever seen. You can use this box as a hat, glove, or even just a place for your cat to sleep. The camera is also decent I can take pictures of my box and I can see every detail when I look at the images. I own a horse."
"i sold my family into white slavery to secure the funds necessary for the purchase of this stellar piece of camera equipment. i must say i've never regretted my decision and as a bonus; i never have my kids bothering me about borrowing my camera anymore. "
"I picked this baby up at the swap meet in El Segundo. The guy wanted 25K but when I told him I was a cop and only had 20K cash on me he sold it to me. I never regretted the purchase. It took amazing photos. Unfortunately I don't have it anymore. I ended up trading it straight across for a 2010 corvette to a Hollywood producer looking to upgrade from his 110 instamatic. "
"I love this camera, I actually bought two so I can keep 1 in the house and 1 in the car, now running back and forth to grab my camera is a thing of the past. The picture quality is AMAZING, Ive used them several times at picnics, and mardi gras. The food in the pictures look so nice the food seems to come alive, I swear I can smell those ribs. Just imagine the mardi gras pictures. I also use it to snap the odd photo of my cat Mittens (copies available upon request)."
"I'm one of the scientists working at NASA on the Hubble Deep Field project, and managed to convince the project management team to forgo a high-power scanning antenna for two of these cameras. We sent up the latest module with one of these wired into the module's communications relay system, and are planning to use it for deep-space imaging. The module should be online and operational by December 2011, and I am seriously anticipating the first tests. The second camera has been used extensively to photograph the Pleiades cluster from Earth with astonishing results. Unfortunately, due to atmospheric lensing, the pictures are slightly blurry, leading to complications making out the detail of the atomic structure of the stars' cores. Only 4 stars because a $29,000 camera should come with a quantum tunneling sub-system for short range photonic teleportation to avoid the lensing problem. Highly recommended. "
"I think this camera is pretty great. I bought my children two each and they love using them in the summer. I have tons of pictures of my kids running through the sprinklers and playing with my dog. I am kind of upset they aren't water proof though. But every camera has its faults, right? Still, great quality and I feel like I can see every pore on my childs body (albeit kinda creepy). Great camera for the money! I'm looking to buy my 3rd one once I sell my trailer home."
