Many readers think that those Nikon medium format ads are fake (even though the poll says otherwise). I would agree if it wasn't for ad #3 and the ad #1. Each one of the remaining ads could be created based on existing Nikon product images and a good knowledge of PS, but the viewfinder in ad #3 looks real to me. Can someone think of a camera that has similar shaped viewfinder? This seems to be difficult to fake (but not impossible). Note that all of the fake PS jobs are based on existing models. I haven't seen a fake Nikon image created from scratch.
The other problem I have is the red triangle on the handle of the first ad – the triangle looks different than any of the existing models (personal opinion, I could be wrong). The sequence here is MX, D3, D2HS, D700, D300, D200, D90, D80, D70 and F6. Did I miss a model?
Here is the lens from ad #3 done in PS by one of the readers:
Looks pretty damn close.
Here is another detailed compassion of the DX-FX-MX sensors from ad #4 done by another reader:
The next one is a PS job sent to me anonymously. The text on this one means "Old fox" - a crafty or clever person.
Thank you all for you your comments and analysis. Remember that I am in the same boat as you - I just want to know and I don't know anything more than you do.
If you did not get enough, here is another one of the many emails I got on this topic:
