I can't even remember the last time I smiled for a camera that used film. Camera brands Canon, Fujifilm, Kodak, SONY and Nikon jumped into digital developing cameras that are slimmer, longer zoom, higher pixels, larger LCD screen, special effects... now TOUCHSCREEN!
Nikon got it right to have Ashton Kutcher, the most lovable (and pretty to look at) spokesperson on TV today, to demonstrate how to use Nikon's new Coolpix cameras. Ashton's appeal reaches young girls in their teens (the big bro fantasy), ladies like me (possible bf material) or older women on the prowl (who envy Demi). Ashton's Coolpix microsite has a feature where you can upload photos onto "Ashton's" camera. I tried it out and had to choose a category that described my photo. I chose "Kegger".

It's very 'sports replay' like. Nice Coolpix ad placement on the MTV site Nikon, well played.
