The guy on the left is arguing for a K-01 model from Canikon and the one on the right said the K-01 was a stupid idea, they need to build an entire new lens line up. Very similar to lots of discussions on these forums.

Yea, that was gratuitous, and then when the personal insults started, I stopped watching the video. I suppose it was to make the video "edgier," but I thought it was stupid and petty.

Not really a fan. Watched a "review" once that spent more time focused on the talking head than on the gear. Self aggrandizing, ego stroking, wannabe celebrities.

YMMV.

I didn't watch the video, but based on the still image, I bet the "reviewer" spent more time (and money) on his hair than on reviewing photography equipment.

Well, FWIW, he really liked the K-3...
and

But obviously, we'll have to agree to disagree about the K-01. Even though I think most of us recognize that Pentax could have made a better camera than what they did deliver in the K-01, it's still one fine camera...

Their store front has a nice big backlit Pentax sign on it. Do they have a Ricoh sign on the back?

The usual ignorance regarding Pentax. This kind of opinion only serves to demonstrate that these guys know nothing.

I think there is some interesting stuff in these guys' video reviews. But I think they are like a lot of reviewers at the moment in that they have a very strong preconceived idea of what they want in a camera and they slam the cameras that somehow confound their expectations. I wish more reviewers would just review the camera on front of them for what it is, rather than just criticize it because it isn't an OMD EM5 (or whatever the current "consensus camera" is).

I always thought the tech website The Register used to do a good job of reviewing cameras objectively. Unfortunately, I don't think they do camera reviews any more.
