    My small collection of vintage 35mm cameras. This shot is mostly just me experimenting with a Helios 44-2 on my A6000.

    I posted this same photo in a A6000 group on facebook. It got deleted and I got reprimanded because it broke a rule. The group rules say "no gear shots".

    So. In everyone's opinion (professional or otherwise), is that photo a "gear shot" or art?

    Being deleted from Facebook is a badge of honor, IMO. :laugh:

    I have an update on the stupid facebook group situation.

    I posted this image, then added a comment saying something like "Oops, I didn't notice that there was a camera depicted on that beer can. I hope this isn't considered a gear shot"
    (A6000 + Rokkor 50mm f/1.2)

    I got some likes and a few laughs.
    Last night I went to surf the A6000 group. Looks like I had been blocked/banned completely. :laugh1:
    Hooray for admins with ZERO sense of humor.
