The viral image is fake, edited digitally. The original image is flipped vertically (mirror image) and then Canon Lens cover is added to it digitally.

  1. The original image is flipped vertically first which is clear from Nikon’s mirror logo and then Canon lens is added which is right.
  2. The DSLR camera is of Nikon while the Lens cover is of Canon
  3. The logo of “Canon” is much clear/sharper then the logo of “Nikon” which too is an easy give away.
