The camera adds 10 pounds

Good day, Milady.

That awkward moment you realize that the reason that “the camera adds 10 pounds” is because additional weight was considered more attractive back when cameras were invented.

As such, this 10 pounds of perceived weight gain was actually built into the camera designon purpose! — and everyone has paid the on-camera weight toll ever since!

Now, there is a lot of history — and a huge legacy — behind this original design decision, so I don’t think it will ever be reversed, but I am now trying to get all future camera specifications updated so at least the extra 10 pounds we accumulate on-camera is perceived as a gain in lean muscle mass.

You’re welcome.
