    Thumbs up Humor -- Buying a medium format camera

    Just saw this. Pretty funny for anybody into MF, but a little irreverent language, so be warned. About 3 minutes :

    Hilarious!

    Try this one on for size... Hitler reacts to the introduction of the Canon 7D... lots of F*** words so be warned.

    I got big kick out of it... my kind of humor. Reminds me of something Chris Rock once said about nothing being off limits if you're even handed. Something in there to offend everyone

    They definitely threw everybody under the bus, but I'm still laughing about, "Real Leica shooters don't change lenses."

    "WTF kind of camera system only has two lenses?!"
    "Leica."

    And he says Leica without hesitation, then a brief pause before delivering the next line - love it.

    I thought we were just supposed to buy a new body with each new lens? (preferably with ostrich skin).

    Funny, even if only to those who have abandoned all hope.

    I see this been referred n mostly all the forums, and they have one on the Red Epic camera vs the Arri Alexa as well, I can only watch about 3 secs of it, as to me it absolutely Silly nonsense, possibly to do with the fact that I despite Vulgarity and been Italian, I just simply don't get some of the Funny in a foreign language.. what ever..don't even know why I'm posting hehe.

    I am fluent in German since my childhood so theres no problem in understanding aside politics :P thinking about Hitler being perfectionist in his own right and his attention to detail attitude combined with the subtitles i was reading made it funny for me..
