Canon Is Not Giving You A “Professional Photographer” Certificate If You Buy A Camera Over $599


A few sites brought a news they obviously got wrong.

Satirical site The Babylon Bee reported that Canon will hand out a “professional photographer” certificate with any camera that costs more than $599.

The faked press release states:

If you spend at least $599 on a camera, you’re instantly transformed into a professional photographer, and now you have the documentation to prove it. In a lot of professions, you have to take classes or practice for years before you truly become a professional, but not in photography. Just buy one of our budget to mid-range cameras, and you’re in.”

Well, some people took this for real ;-)
