Marketing - Olympus

Who else would have an affordable 'pro' camera and weatherproof lenses, well upto a British Summer wedding/holiday - and not push that feature.

Mayhaps we should ask for the UK marketing budget and show them how to sell the cameras.

I think the budget would be good for 2 pints of lager and a packet of crisps.*

Re: Photos taken by E-5

I tend to agree with John on this one. If you want to show, please at least use a better looking model. I am sure there is lots of willing beautiful models in Taiwan for it.

Why is it I get the feeling the FACE is out of proportion and looks like a bad cut and paste job??

Here in China, the stick-thin emaciated look with big eyes/face is all the rage.

There are many girls looking like this, and they get the guys with the money.

Which part of China? I thought pencil thin eyes and almond face is the in thing? Maybe I am wrong..time to redraw my expectation.

My expectations of China were shattered upon landing!

China has many faces, from almost Russian/European mix in the north to Malay/Thai in the south. The ethnic make-up and variety is astounding. There are many very beautiful women here.

The pencil thin eyes are out of fashion and, like Korea, plastic surgery is all the rage. The shame is that large eyes are European influence in the genes - so by wanting to follow the "big-eyed" look, the people are actually saying they don't want to look traditional Chinese.

The country is developing faster than their society can cope with, leaving many Chinese unsure of what to do: caught between tradition and an ever increasing range of social freedoms never before encountered.
