Gif shows how the camera really can make you put on "10 lbs"

ONE gif shows that the old truism, 'the camera adds 10 lbs' isn't that far off. In fact, some cameras can make you look like you've gained hundreds.

Posting on Twitter, comic book writer Jim Zub showed how one person's face can be made to look fatter and fatter through a simple change of camera lens.

It's the difference between 24mm and 200 mm lense. Which, if you're a maths genius, you'll know is just 17.6cm. About the size of a classic Curly Whirly. And now you can eat as many of those as you like as long as you always shoot selfies in 35mm.
