Survey said: most people are camera shy (73% women, 50% men). So whatâ€™s that got to do with Fujifilmâ€™s face detection technology?
Nothing. They just want to you to ride on that magic carpet of a survey to fly to their new website touting and explaining their newfangled FD tech. Which is really not all that bad, because if youâ€™re patient enough to wade through some hokey advice (â€œthink happy thoughtsâ€ when in front of a camera), youâ€™ll find some gems like pro photog James Ferraraâ€™s advice to raise the subjectsâ€™ chin just so, to add some sparkle or catch light in their eyes.
But Fuji really did make a survey, which showed that people would rather do the laundry (44%), pay bills (34%) or even visit their dentist (18%) than pose for a picture.
Me? Oh, take my picture anytime. Iâ€™m as photogenic as Ed Hidden.
