At least those famous people are famous, and got there because they make 
photos people buy.
Maybe buying their brand of camera just because they promote it is ignorant,
but by the same token buying one because someone unknown outside a brandfan 
forum promotes it
has to be 10X more ignorant.  And at no time have I ever seen any of those 
"famous" guys bash any other brand,
perhaps they have too much class ;) 

Where the format and brand of camera a famous person uses matters is when
selling a product to people who don't know what they want or how to get
what they want.  It's hero worship and marketing departments use it to
manipulate us into buying their products.
