"Slimming" Digital Cameras: Love It or Hate It?


On a number of its new digital-camera models, HP has introduced a new "slimming feature," which promises to trim pounds off of your photo subjects using imaging trickery. You can read about the details here, but basically, the nifty tool subtly makes people appear trimmer while still maintaining normal body proportions. The driving philosophy behind this product seems to be, Why lose weight if you can look better in photos regardless? Something about that attitude just bothers me; it seems like an extreme extension of all of the airbrushing and other tinkering in today's photography. What do you guys think of this idea? Love it or hate it? Tell me what you think!
