He is a douche, but that green k-x made me laugh. I don't think he's going to give Pentax any respect until they release a proper camera- say a full fame!
He very much liked the DA40 though, i think he could quite enjoy the K5 with the FA/DA limited lenses. He is a sucker for quality feel.

is it just me or does presenter Kai W. come off as a pretentious douche?
It's not just you... Everytime I watch him I'm filled with a strong urge to kick him in his yambag.

This I very much agree with, somewhat entertaining if you don't take it too seriously. (I also have a relatively silly sense of humor but can see how its not for everyone)
As for the "reviews" I see them as being more like product showcases rather than formal reviews.

I find the averge DRTV episode much less painful (especially the pro photographer / cheap camera challenges) than reading another "the K-01 is/isn't crap" or "FF vs APS-C" thread - and, as time goes to infinity, ALL threads become "FF vs APS-C" threads.

This comes closest to what I feel. I can't stand that arrogant smartass little twerp.

I seldom watch such videos but this one (the title of this thread) grabbed my attention.

Man! ... OH Man!!

The attitude, the body language, .... the "I know it all" presentation: what a goof !

You could say that. Did I mention "obnoxious"?

I enjoy watching their videos because I don't take the pentax-bashing thing too seriously. I don't really care what he thinks (why should anyone?) and he does complement Pentax on occasion, like the K-01 and the DA40. The review of the K-x, I agree, was bulls**t. "Look at these lines..." on a $400 camera? Oh no!

They do try WAY too hard to be like Top Gear, though. Sometimes it's beyond cheesy and just annoying. That episode with the Porsche shoot easily could have qualified for "Top Gear HK" or something...

I can't stand his accent. It makes me struggle to understand what he's saying sometimes.

His reviews are also kind of meh. Whether or not they're written by him, doesn't change the final product.

I find him somewhat amusing in small doses but he grows tiresome pretty quickly.

I find him pretty amusing also. For a Nikon fan, he was pretty hard on the D800.

The ones with Lok (the cameraman) only are actually quite helpful videos, especially for people into filming. It's like he is not manuscript bound when he's on his own.
