review by digitalRev TV


Only a fast and flimsy review but it's something... at last.

So, we're still waiting for a review from an adult.

that because it's a "Hands-on" and not a "Review"...
Same error as Leehaze youtube channel keeps doing almost everytime :/

seems reviewing cameras is not their strong point ?

Guess they prefer to practise their naff Brit humour.

I would know I am one

Kai. He moved back to the UK and still does some reviews for them. I have watched them (digitalrev) long enough to know their schtick and while even with Kai doing it, it kind of gets old... these two are just taking it to the extreme. Everything seems so forced and fake. I used to like Lok (the guy with the white shirt and glasses) as he always played more of the Straight Man angle but also occasionally did some more serious camera "reviews" on his own. But this... I just cringed the whole time watching it.

Well that was 6 mins I will never get back. Not really sure what they where going for there, or why they where trying to compare the K70 to a Nikon D500 or the 80D considering those are more or less flagship aps-c models (or close to flagship models) and the K70 is Pentax's current entry/mid level offering.

I guess they got confused where it sat in the lineup because its more feature rich than any of the other entry/mid level cameras out there and it just wouldn't be fair to make and an actual apples to apples comparison when Pentax would pretty much blow them out of the water.

Yep.

Digitalrev used to be good, but then Kai got a big head for some reason and the info-tainment became far less info and far more -tainment.

total waste of time. at least the vids with Kai have some absurd entertainment value. This one falls short of all those...
...apart from Sigma.

As I said in another thread which linked to this same video, the Internet allows anyone to appear to be an "expert", so I value nothing from YouTube because of the difficulty in vetting most of the presenters. Unfortunately, other people might actually put some credence in the nonsense they see online.

Price might provide a hint into what should be compared to what.
