LOLz round-up: Panasonic makes you pretty, Kodak makes you ugly; Barbie vs 7D

And now time for a silliness round-up :) The Pop Photo Flash blog features a new detailed article at the blog of dating website OK Cupid, where they have analyzed half a million pictures submitted to the dating site by their users and came to a variety of conclusions, including which cameras make you look pretty and which ones make you ugly. At the two ends of the spectrum, the Panasonic M43rds cameras make you look the prettiest and the Kodak Easyshares make you look the ugliest. We are assuming the OK Cupid blog post was written tongue-in-cheek (or at least we are interpreting it that way), while at the same time having some geekery fun with the available data :)

They also correlate f-stops with attractiveness. Further more, their numbers "verify" the sex-life stereotypes of smartphones users: iPhone (trendy party people) vs Blackberry (business users and wife-cheating politicians) vs Android (geeks) ;-)

And now something different on the camera comparison front - in case you missed the following viral video - the "Barbie Video Girl" doll with a camera takes on the Canon 7D in a head-to-head comparison ;-) Vimeo has the three-minute Video comparison between the two, directed and edited by Brandon Bloch (website).
