Makes me realize how few female reviewers there are on You Tube.

Even fewer who compare to Piper.

Life changing experience

I didn't know tech reviews by "erotic models" were a thing.
Normally I buy whatever ordinary celebrities recommend...

After watching the video are we supposed to remember anything about the camera?

I heard that DPR is planning to hire her as the rider in their 'wobbly bicycle' AF tests.

I think she'd be an ideal partner in The Angry Photographer videos.

How about T&C + PB review the Pentax K-1 II?


The possibilities are endless.

I can't believe she was capable of counting the five buttons on the Leica's back!

I think Piper is even smarter than she looks. She has a clever scheme of using teasing (and tame enough for content filters) Youtube videos to promote her "you pay, you get to see" website. There is nothing for free on her website, so I don't know what an $8.99 download gets you, but she appears to be a shrewd businesswoman. ProudlyCanadian, too!

I think you've been mesmerized by the low top, RGlasel!

There are lots of ocial influencers from Kim Kardashian all the way down to her, they don't need to understand any of the products they're paid to advertise ("28mm and 1.7 is good!"), just be in the shot with them.

I disagree on how she describes the macro mode for men. Sounds like she has the syndrome of confirmation bias.

That's your disagreement, BE? She admitted she doesn't even take photos, what about the rest of her 'review'?

All our blood is clearly in parts of our bodies other than our heads!

She said something about macro like "women take pictures of flowers, and men take pictures of ladies", well men also take macro picture of flower: Pentax forum just launched the monthly contest of "macro flowers and plants".

To paraphrase Marshall McLuhan, the top part is the message. Piper also has a Youtube video where she demonstrates the effect of wearing a sports bra, regular bra and and no bra while skipping rope. I think she has a thorough understanding of her customers.

On second thought...

It sounds as though she understands more than many photographers I have known...
