1) Northrup's "sports test" was a joke. Heck, even his wife (? I assume she is) called it a 'moving portrait'. As I stated, a ~60% hit rate in that scenario is ridiculously low – something I'd expect even an entry-level dSLR to beat in that 'test'. It's already been pointed out that he had a setting enabled which Canon warns against using with moving subject.
That guy shamelessly admits inability to use proper settings on Canon, and sells it as a Canon fault.
If some of you are unaware, he also uses psychological salesman tricks. Entire video is made in a manner of shopping channel, like it's all scripted.
Guy has a role as knowlegeable expert.
Girl has a role of an observer waiting for answer, someone with whom viewer should identify. She gets convinced, that's that.
"How can you not agree with her you weirdo?"
