Not only a waste of time but appealing to equipment snobs and subject to EXIF fraud...it' easy!

Find a file on-line taken with your desired (but unaffordable) camera, copy it into PS, duplicate it as layer, delete the pic info from that layer to get a transparent layer, delete original and save the transparent layer and paste your image taken with El-Cheapo cam onto it and the EXIF will show that it was made with eg D800 or whatever.

A colleague showed me how it was done after he sent a file purportedly coming from a Canon 5D MkII whilst it was in fact taken with a 40D.

Here's one taken with a D800 taken at 11.30pm on a January evening in NL! In reality a stitched pano with a D80 and 18-55mm kit lens.

Ah well, the EXIF data doesn't appear to be available so this is it from PSE Dutch Version.

How can it tell which lens is used? The EXIF data on my images (using a Canon) only records the focal length, say 40mm, when I've actually used a 24-70mmL lens.
exif data also show lens make etc. Lightroom lens corrections also reads exif to determine lens used and to apply the correct corrections

Right.  Within Adobe's raw converter it has a lens correction option, and for it to work it needs to know what lens you used.  Sometimes I use it sometimes I don't. ;)

It's all there. I can see some in Bridge (tells the lens used and the actual focal length used for each shot if zoom), Flickr (if you don't disable the feature) shows a larger data subset, and Opanda gives a much fuller set still, including actuations.

What? No Holga? I started shooting with a Holga in order to capture Vetta images in camera without all that time consuming post processing.  :'(

Wow! It's amazing how good vector illustrations a Nikon 70-200 can make!

Looks like canon 5dmkII is the most popular microstock camera (@DT)
1.15million.

not really a surprise.

Should I start shooting with a Casio QV-5700. Theres only 26 photos to compete with if a designer specifically wants an photo from that particular model.

Hang on there's the  Ricoh CX2 with only one photo. I'll be rolling in cash, nobody steal my idea okay !!!

I probably could have come up with something else to develop if I was running the show.

Sometimes when a suit with a $150 haircut says "Hey I've got this great idea to boost sales and improve the buyer experience" the better option is to use his iPad to beat him to a pulp.

A pinhole camera in the hands of an artist can produce wondrous material.  Conversely, the most expensive camera on the market in the hands of a hack will produce nothing but shapshots.  And anyone who would say to a photogapher, "Your camera takes great pictures," would say to a chef, "Your pots and pans make really great meals."  Stupidity abounds.

What do I do if I'm a blonde woman with a beard but only on the left hand side of my face???

LOL!

That's one of the funniest things I've ever read - and I know a LOT of people who will appreciate this (completely unrelated to the subject of this thread).  Thank you!  ;D
