hehe, why would you need big zoom when you can have image stabilizer? :))

I guess this is an old post, right Ivan? If it is not, this is another case for Joe La Pompe.

at the distance the photographer is from the reptile, that Canon better have some anti-bite stuff too.

Did they actually retouch the (supposed) picture taker's reflection into the crocs's eye? Yes they did. Puke.

A bad word play in your first line of copy too ("you never know what catches your eye..." wink wink, get it?)

Poor English grammar.

A real winner.

1). Considering the ad is describing future occurrence that has yet to be determined, the tense being used "you never know" is incorrect. In this instance, it should read "you'll never know..."

2). Also, The ad is logically incorrect. With the addition of the photographer's reflections in the croc's eye, we have to assume the picture has already been taken and so "you never know" would be logically incorrect. If the photographer has already taken the picture, then he would know and this copy would have to be in the past tense.

This is professional work, huh? Yikes.
