Re: Canon 7D or Barbiecam??

I thought it was great, but not everyone agreed. This was one of the comments:-

Is anyone else just creeped out that they made a toy like this at all?

Personally, I thought that was a bit harsh on the Canon!

So does the Barbiecam have a webcam mode?
That would be creepy ...

Yes the Barbiecam is a great invention, excellent for candid photography, (who would suspect it's a camera), built in tripod and can be folded up for storage. Now the Canon on the other hand....................lol

Brilliant
The colour in the Barbie Video is a bit pink but that may be deliberate.
