I was just going to post this link. Beat me to it.
I really like Pentax but I have to admit, the K-01 is a really crappy looking camera.

That's surprising, it was somewhat positive review.

If it weren't for his attire, K-01 would've gotten more attention

This is my pre-laugh-out-loud response to watching the video.
I can already tell this is going to be good. - poor guy.

Not a bad review from Kai - he seemed to like the camera, which given the amount of camera he reviews is good.

The shows 'style' is very 'off the wall' and takes the Mickey....this was actually a relatively restrained one...

Nice to see the K-01 in a review.

All in all, Kai seems to like it. This is actually surprising!

Well as I suspected, it was hilarious. loved the pants btw.
The first time I saw this guy, he was stabbing cammera's with a fork in an effort to demonstrate their durability. lol Needless to say it left a lasting impression on me insofar as his abilities to test camera's in any serious manor.

That being said, the reviewer has a certain undeserved kindness factor surrounding his mental stability which seems to give him that "Je ne say quoi" edge on the rest of the reviewers. Save perhaps that Fro knows Photo guy, but he's still seems to have a little more composure all sniffing aside

Anyways, I thought his criticism to be quite kind toward the K-01 all things considered not to mention that I don't think I could contain myself if it would have been my own review. And so I'd congratulate the reviewer in that regard. Nice to see reviewers can have more an an open mind than us old coots

I actually think he "hit the nail on the head" with this one. The camera certainly has its flaws, but, overall it's the same feeling I get with the camera - it's fun to use and has great picture quality - what more do you need!

Fun to see. I'm walking around with a K-01 this weekend, and I like the camera. It is a bit different in handling, but it is a nicely fast and responcive camera to my first feelings.

I like his reviews, I gotta watch this one after the sun sets tonight...looks fun.

The whole way the "show" is produced is very similar to how Top Gear does their reviews... the character this guy has reinforces that fact as he reminds me of James May and Jeremy Clarkson in a single individual... (even tho both are polar opposites).

I actually expected Kai to like it with his hipster tendencies. It is nice to see he didn't completely trash it. On a related note mentioned in the video, that floppy rubber slot cover was a big design fail...
