When I see stuff like this, I wonder if we are turning into a society of narcissists lol. I completely understand 365 projects, but this??
Its a camera geared to one specific group: teenage girls. The aesthetics of the camera along with its marketing suggests just that. It's only offered in pastel shades of pink, mint green, and white.
