This is an Australian Ad for the Lumix G2..

Would love to get some responses and find out how you all feel about it.

"you don't have to be a great photographer to take great photos"

I love it. It is dead on people take creat photos not the equipment. The same equipment in the hands of a person with no aptitude right along side a person with the aptitude proves this point.
I gotta get me a Lumix....oh, wait, I already have one in a drawer...
I think what the ad is saying is fair, are all photos taken with that camera going to be "great"? Probably not, but not all photos taken with a primitive camera are horrible.
The ad is funny, but what they're trying to say is completely wrong. Yes, even someone without any photography training at all can take fantastic photos, but it's rare to capture specific things like that without knowing anything.

They're saying the Auto mode on the camera can make you take phenomenal photos...which is most likely untrue.
I think it pretty much shows what's wrong with at least my area.
A quote often attributed to P.T. Barnum pops to mind and is as true today as it was in the late 1800's when it was uttered:

There's a sucker born every minute
You think this is bad try their sponsored "how to take stunning photos" on channel 5 (if you're in the uk). ;)
