Best Camera Commercial of All Time
In all my research for these camera commercials including the ones that didn't make the cut for their year, I came across one that stood out by a mile. It chose not to focus on a particular model but on the photographers themselves. A lifestyle not a product. That is what photography is ultimately about, the experience one has trying to capture the images that are important to them. Through all the ups and downs, the trial end error, the dedication, and the drive; in the end I think every photographer would agree.. It's always worth it.
