Also, I thought Cameraville gave up promoting Pentax.
They don't...at least not intentionally...

I haven't seen a ton of his videos, but I have a sneaking suspicion he does. Except only just enough to sneak past the demonitization algorithms, or something to that effect. I saw the one video claiming the demonitization and removed view counts as the reason he stopped promoting Pentax, but I also saw many comments on that video saying this wasn't the first time he did something like this and didn't expect it to last. Oh well.

Give the fellow a break: he used to concentrate on Pentax, but it wasn’t paying, so he branched out. At least he still includes Pentax gear, and doesn’t overplay the AF differences like some others.

History aside, if you actually watch the video, his photos with the Canon demonstrate an uninspiring low-light colour performance, and he actually shows Canon’s own handbook warnings about overheating. I’d hardly say that adds up to a display of Canon-hating.

I find his opening bit quite annoying, but to give him his due, he is showing us something here and is complimentary to Pentax.

What's the deal, does he buy his own gear to review?

He does... and not too long ago he announced he was going to stop doing Pentax videos because he couldn't get hold of lenses to review, and his viewers weren't using his affiliate links to buy anything. I'm paraphrasing, but that's essentially what he said, if my memory serves me correctly...

EDIT: I found my last post re his channel:

He does.
Sometimes he does but he rents things to review mostly.

He has made claims to buying all the gear he reviews,however he conteracts that statement in other places.

I wonder if his middle name is AR?

Lest this turn into another anti-CameraVille-guy discussion, I'll just say that whilst I personally don't watch his YouTube content for reasons I've previously mentioned in other threads, it's nice to see a Pentax product coming out ahead in any comparison, no matter the source. I have nothing against The CameraVille, and wish Li well in his YouTube endeavours, whatever brands he chooses to cover and/or favour. The channel does me no harm, and his followers seem to enjoy his content - so it's all good

I think the leaks indicate a K1 III coming out some time next year.

I personally have no strong opinion of him either way because I don't really follow him. I only know of his videos from doing research for my camera purchase. I think anyone giving Pentax its dues is a good thing.

Is this a new statement from the oracle? I think I recall him saying something about video a while back, but Iím not sure about the K-1ii successor.

I think I am mixing two things up. Pentax Rumors had something about two new APS-C cameras, one with improved video (a pretty flimsy rumor if you ask me). Ricoh is rumored to be working on another Pentax APS-C DSLR camera - Pentax Rumors

Asahiman said: Two bodies apsc, two bodies in full frame. In this DP Review thread: One for stills, one for video. (2 new cameras?): Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review This of course doesn't say there will be a new full frame body next year, just that the plans are to have two APS-C and two full frame cameras in the line up eventually.

OK. Thanks for clearing that up. We can start looking forward to the next K-1 iteration after February.
