Canon Malaysia’s Photoshop Fail (Updated with a 3rd Mistake!)

Our eagle-eyed friend, Adrian Tung, spotted this Photoshop #Fail in the Canon Malaysia website yesterday. One of the slider advertisements was for Canon Malaysia’s wedoo photobook service, which allows Canon users to create personalised photo print albums. Take a look at the example camera they used in the advertisement. 😀

That camera is no Canon. It is actually an Olympus PEN digital camera!

It is possible that it was a stock photo they purchased to use in this advertisement. However, it would be odd for such stock photos not to include a description, or come in such a small size that they could not make out the Olympus logo. On investigation, it looks like the only source for this photo is this Canal Cero Television website.

This is where Canon Malaysia likely appropriated the photo of the Olympus PEN mirrorless camera

I have tried to locate another source of this photo to no avail. This appears to be the only source of the photo that could possibly be used in this Photoshop fail.

Of course, I could be wrong. If this is actually a stock photo, please do let me know, and I would be more than happy to correct this article.

In the meantime, I think Canon Malaysia might want to swap that picture of an Olympus camera for one of their own… 😀

 

Buy One, Free One

Another eagle-eyed Tech ARP forumer, trodas, pointed out another mistake in the picture :

If the first one isn't bad enough, there's a second mistake in the picture!

How can someone get there the “…s image” is beyond my understanding. These tooltips should not be rendered on the image, so he/she must have taken printscreen of the actuall work… I think.

Yes, it looks like the graphics designer took a screenshot of the actual work, instead of saving it. Otherwise, the tooltip wouldn’t have appeared. I have no idea why he/she would do that…

 

There Is A Third Mistake!

Eagle-eyed Adrian Tung just pointed out that they used the Olympus camera picture twice. Once in the main picture above, and a second time on the left side. Take a look!

There is actually a THIRD Photoshop mistake in this picture!

In the second example (on the left), they actually flipped the picture horizontally, creating a mirror image of the picture on the right. No joke – THREE Photoshop fails in a single picture.
