Every Covid-19 Commercial is Exactly the Same

While it's a serious matter, the similarities with all of these ads is quite funny.

Haha, I've noticed this too! But this edit is amazing. Hahaha. Actually quite ridiculous. I bet 95% of that content is stock footage too.

I was just about ask - is it actually rather distasteful that they're jumping on a crisis as an advertising opportunity, and worse, being so generic about it?

Its the nature of the beast .. some ads are very clever/ funny and well done .. this type are not .. I guess they just mustered up the C team to knock them out the door .. in very bad taste ..

Yeah - all pretty much entirely compromised of stock footage too. Shows the haste they were thrown together.

    • I go between x mount lenses for small jobs,  and PL glass on bigger ones.

    • What lenses are you folks using? My brother has an XT-3 that I've poked around with enough to make me consider purchasing one, but the X mount makes me hesitate.
    • Hi Everyone. I've been scouring every corner of the internet for days now trying to figure out which camera to go for and I'm pulling my hair out. I'm looking for a versatile mirrorless camera for a mix of documentary and narrative work. I'm confident that all the options I'm looking at are suitable for the kind of narrative, commercial and music video work I do. However I also need something that I can use for documentary work - largely handheld. Sometimes filming actuality, following subjects around. Sometimes nice cinematic b-roll. I like to keep DOF relatively shallow. My priorities: - Good IBIS - Good lowlight - Ability to record and monitor audio - Good for photography - A good native zoom lens for general documentary work Secondary considerations: - 10- bit internal would be nice - Autofocus - AF is something I've never used in the past. Being trained in natural history filmmaking a decade ago - the idea of using AF for video was laughable. I'm unsure whether I'm missing a trick here. Is some AF now truly good enough to accurately track and keep focus on subjects at shallow depths of field? Right now it's a real toss up between the Panasonic S1, Nikon Z6 and the Fuji XT4 For a while I was pretty set on getting the Panasonic S1. I like the idea of a bigger camera for handheld work and the IBIS looks great. Internal 10 bit also appealing. But once I add the costs of the firmware upgrade and an expensive L-series zoom, the whole kit will cost around €3200, instead of around €2300 for the XT4 or €2100 for the Z6. I considered the Gh5 and A7iii too but I'm leaning away from them because of the bad low light and m4/3 mount on the gh5 and the lack of 10-bit recording (even externally) on the a7iii. I'm leaning towards full frame options for what they offer in terms of shallow DOF and low light capabilities. I have a set of old Nikon AIS primes which I love using and plan on adapting these to whatever setup I have. Any help here would be much appreciated!
    • Hi everyone, I'm just an arts hobbyist who tried filmmaking last year by making a short about my depression. Feeling the itch of having another go after focusing on my music since the film. Here to learn more about the craft and equipment, won't probably write so much, mostly here to read and listen 🙂 Short here if anyone want's to see it:
