Humor: Meet The Vidiot, The Flasher, The Macro Freak, And More Clueless DSLR Users

This funny little video was made by Sony to push its mirrorless camera offerings. The video makes fun of eight stereotypes of DSLR shooters that have no clues about what they are doing. Sony created the Youtube account DSLR Gear No Idea to post this video.

Hilarious thing. Meet the following kinds of people with lotsa gear and no idea about how to use it: the foreign correspondent, the status updaters, the f-stop fusspot, the flasher, the sideline hero, the macro freak, the lens spotter and the vidiot. Needless to say: the video is going viral. Have fun!

    Even if they made fun of Sony photo gear is still would be funny.

    BTW, I am the Sony f-stop fusspot, the flasher, the sideline hero, the macro freak, the lens spotter and the vidiot and I am proud of it 🙂

    That had me laughing the whole time! Loved when the photographer at the MTB race missed two photo opportunities and kicked his bag in frustration. Good stuff!

      Agree. The “side line hero” is the best one.
