Great video comparing the Canon 7D with the new Barbie Video Girl by Brandon Block and Fernando Ortega:

A comparison between my two new cameras: The $1,800 Canon 7D versus the brand new $50 Barbie Video Girl… available in the girlie aisle of your local Toys R Us. It’s the sassiest camera money can buy.

This is also a spoof of another video that compared the Canon 7D and iPhone 4: “iPhone 4 as good as the 7D? No, but it’s amazing for what it is.”

    Well done! Great concept, really well executed!

    Of course a more accurate comparison would normalize for dollars: what would the video from 3600 Barbies look like? (Nice video, BTW!)
