Video IQ: Canon 70D v Pentax K-3

But there's something fishy about this video.
Comments are disabled, which reinforces my suspicions.
See if you can tell what I mean and let me know what you think?
Certainly the K-3 trounces the 70D if this video is to be believed.

I have seen this and I believe that this is not what it says it is. The switch between cameras is totally seemless...

there is no way this video is real. the focal point is always spot on, their crop factors are not the same yet they manage to make an absolute perfect scene placement. ?!?!?!? fake.

About all I see about this video is that the K-3 managed to scare the black goat...

My guess:
Both shots are done with a K-3
Second one is always just half an f-stop brighter

That Indian guy does it always with a K-3 ...
I think he is trying to joke on our expectations.
He is not to be taken serious at all.

The supposed K-3 comparison shots are sharper, clearer but not brighter to my eye.
As stated by Tjompen1968 & Steelski. Shots are seamless, are not a single pixel out of alignment as it changes from the 70D to K-3, and the subjects movement continues without a break. Even if he had the two cameras rigged side by side and recording simultaneously, there would be at least a slight difference of the PoV.
Whichever camera he has used (could even be a camcorder for all we know, there's no proof he has a K-3) he's posting fake clips as far as I see. Probably to bolster his YT monetizing - I'm sure he knows there's lots of people looking for K-3 samples on YouTube..
IOW: He's trolling.

That's funny how we look at those differences !
Maybe he is right and we are influenced by the names we read.

He was one of the first users who shot test clips of what could be a K-3.
All these were done in India, some in Mumbai and he has been quicker than all of us.

He surely is making fun of us pixel-peepers ;-)
