I've been meaning for months to post photos of an Olympus ad on the back of New Scientist earlier this year for one of their digital SLRs, which has about as much copy as the Walkman ad above (but no Bernard Cribbins).

By contrast, the ads for the equivalent Canon and Nikon products have a big, arguably "lifestyle", picture, a catchy slogan, and a smaller picture of the actual camera. Hmm.

Anyway, the copy-heavy ad isn't dead yet, but it sticks out like a sore thumb when you see one, and maybe I'll finally post the bloody pictures now.
