Fake K-3 video?

WorldOfDSLR (Youtube Channel) was pretty much the first to post K-3 video samples in November 2013. Quite early for someone in India to get hold of one.
Anyway, revisiting the samples posted now they don't look like any other video samples from a K-3 that have been posted by K-3 users.
Examples from WorldOfDSLR;


In the description the poster writes; Picture Style :- Standard
Well any Canon DSLR owner will know that this is Canon terminology, not Pentax who name them 'Custom Styles' and don't have one named 'Standard'
(From the K-2 Manual)
Bright (default setting)
Natural
Portrait
Landscape
Vibrant
Radiant
Muted
Bleach Bypass
Reversal Film
Monochrome
Cross Processing.

Is WorldOfDSLR posting fakes? Are they all really Canon 70D?
Look at his comparison test between the K-3 and 70D;


Look carefully at the framing for each camera for each comparison shot, they are uncannily accurate, impossibly accurate actually. It's no wonder that the comments section has been disabled because I believe the footage is fake.

Sorry Steve...I pulled my comment. I did not know that WorldOfDSLR was a YouTube account. I thought it was a Web site and was wanting to view the videos in context of supporting text.

Yep, the framing is pretty dang close.

No worries, I edited the OP to make that clearer for others.
Not only the framing but zero lens difference.

When these videos first appeared, I was also puzzled to see the K-3 appear in the hands of some obscure Indian user, before the camera appeared practically anywhere else. I would not at all be surprised to find that the video samples were from a Canon.

Yet another opportunistic YouTube user trying to monetise people's interest in the K-3. Like that guy who posted a review of the K-3 recently, said some deliberately provocative link-bait things about it, but had never actually used the camera.

My thoughts also.
There's a hell of a lot of spammers these days who post 'reviews' which are nothing more than slideshows of product images with absolutely no other information then include their affiliate links in the description..

Holy bunch of royal CRAP! :mad Utter nonsense in the name of K3 videos. On closer observation you will see that worldofdslr also has similar videos for just about every camera on this odd planet
