Funny... I never saw it as a negative review until I read the comments! But then, I'm Danish. We are a gloomy folk. Hers is a typical Danish birthday celebration face..
That has happened to me a lot over the years on this forum as well...and I'm not Danish. I counted very few (2-3?) negatives she mentioned at the end after many positives. I wonder if she even had a working copy, since there is no thing about the image quality, and she did not so much as take a photo in the video.

I thought it was a decent look at the camera for a three minute video.

I must have watched a different version of the video. I thought that she came across happy and cheerful.
She did announce the disclaimer of the camera being a pre-production unit, so that might explain the lack of pictures.
So, not bad for a short and quick preview.

This was probably the most positive I've ever seen her talk about a Pentax product. She's usually so negative towards Pentax, it's infuriating.

You mean she has been doing these presentations for a while? I assumed this was her first time given the quality of the presentation.

Anyway, she does stress build quality and the overall design of the house as positive points, and from what I have seen she is the first to mention the little ridges for diagonal navigation - nice detail!

For some, she could have said "the K3 makes you shat gold" yet they would only hear the reviewer as saying it relates to poo.

I used to watch CNET review quite frequently in the past (years ago), quite frankly after watching a couple of the her reviews, I don't really get it, especially when people may perceive that as "technical" review...

If you ever need an ego-booster...just find some Finns to hang out with. You will be the life of the party.

Seems pretty positive to me. Like Mette said, she just doesn't have a very good "happy face."

This poor woman could be reading all this and if she is actually depressed I don't think it's really going to help her.

These anonymous internet forums can be very unkind.

Its not the forum that can be unkind!

Never forget forums are made up of people , the forum reflects the average of their whole.

I never really pay much attention to reviews, I think it's always best to get reactions of users who have bought it or are considering to buy it.

A lot of the crap, such as a negative of not having an articulated screen or in-camera wi-fi is all subjective. I, for one, don't care about those.
A lot of features on any camera are subjective like grip, size, weight, weather sealing, and so on.
Even flash-sync isn't important for me.

The bare bones of any review should always be the quality of photos documenting any issues, and that needs to be done by someone who knows how to use a camera and push it to its limits in the first place.
Personally, I need to know who well the AF responds in a variety of settings with a few different lenses.
How well is noise handled.
Any repeat exposure issues that may need consideration.
Other than that I can read for myself if the bloody thing has an articulated screen that I couldn't give two shits about.
