Why should I care what "Emily" thinks about the NEX-5r, she doesn't even have a last name! Is she a photographer or does she just play one in a Sony commercial? Strikes me as somehow arrogant that Sony would put this out there and think nobody would notice or care. Why does this bother me so much?

For the record, she is a photographer, and one of the more talented ones I've had the chance to meet. I'm inclined to think she frequents these forums too and chooses to be amused rather than offended by such comments. So, I thought I would create an account just to set that one straight. Her last name is Tebbetts, Google her to see some of her beautiful work. I can see why people would think she's just a hired actress, as she is quite young, and pretty to boot. As for the face-to-camera shot, I can only assume that's force of habit for her, and Sony's error.

Good to know. My beef is not with her but with Sony that she can't have a last name in their commercial. I realize it's not a commercial about the photographer but it seems dehumanizing to not have a name.
