With the money he will save from not buying the 70d, he can invest in a cleaner or perhaps someone to teach him the art of presentation

maybe I'm just numb to it but it's kind of funny to see him get all worked up about it....it's obviously an act to get more hits on youtube.  for those of you who are offended by him, I urge you to not take anything personally.  don't let some clown on you tube get your blood pumping.  I'm not advocating for him.  I just wouldn't take him that seriously.

on another note, I'm actually interested to see how the 70d performs.  I thought I'd never go back to APS-C but if it has AF during video AND it has kelvin temp white balance, AND decent high ISO performance, I might have a reason to get one for a 2nd angle for videos.  I really don't want a T4i/T5i.  I'd like to have the same LP-E6 battery in all my cameras, and a swivel screen is very convenient.

I LOVE the idea of having the same battery for all of my bodies.  Instead of buy a spare for the mkiii and a spare for the 60D/70D and spending $60 bucks for each ($120 total), I can buy one for $60 and have three fully charged batteries anytime I am using a 1 body shoot. 

Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

This goofball suckered me in with his first video. I'm not going to boost his You Tube marketing efforts by watching more of his silly rants.
Yeah that's what I thought too after seeing another of his videos, all he wants is get views on his channel by posting controversial videos.
This guy seems to have so many problems with cameras, he'd probably have a wonderful live if he just gave up on photography altogether.

He's been watching Canon bring out "new" cameras and is realising that Canon just deliver warmed up vomit each time a new camera is announced.

For being 'warmed up vomit' the 1D X and 5DIII take pretty good pictures.
I hope you meant, with 1dx and 5dmk3  you can take good pictures as you can do with a iPhone with  little skills

I don't understand your statement - can you clarify what you mean?

I assume he meant that you can just point and lick <--- CLICK! with an iPhone, and it comes out in focus. He hopes that the same would be true of much more expensive cameras like the 5D3 and 1DX.

You probably just jinxed us! :P

BTW, personally I'm a "It's the whole package" kind of guy...its the gear, its the photographer, its the lighting...its everything put together. You can't really have any one without all the others. Doh...

I would agree that this guy should have just waited for the camera to be put in the hands of real photographers in everyday use before jumping to conclusions, but the performance of companies of late hasn't been all that spectacular and Canon is not exempt from that judgment. Look at new products like the Xbox One. It seems like these large companies are driven more and more by profit than innovation.


I for one am hoping Canon proves this guy wrong, but if I am to be totally honest, my expectations for any large company these days are fairly low. Canon the ball is in your court. Shut the naysayers up.... PLEASE!

Made the mistake of watching about a minute and a half of this vitriol.  Wish I hadn't.  At my age I don't have that much time to waste.  I'll wait for a review from a photographer.  (Even then, I am primarily interested in the 7DII if and when.

First of all how can anyone take this guy seriously when he can't even give any constructive criticism without swearing. I seriously stopped the video after 20 secs. We haven't even seen sample images yet and this guy is already complaining about it. Freaking trolls man, trolls...


What's the difference between "freakin" and "f*ckin"? If you are going to substitute, you might as well use the real thing. That's like people who mistakenly think margarine is better for their body than real butter. By the time your body processes all the imitation garbage that is in margarine, it would be better to have just eaten real butter and exercise accordingly. Using foul language doesn't distract from a point and using substitute words in place of them doesn't validate yours.


The problem isn't his language but his premature judging of a product that isn't even out yet. Canon may introduce new sensor technology that nullifies all of his arguments about noise. That and only that is his only mistake IMO.

My Problems with the Canon 70D

What's wrong with you?

He's been watching Canon bring out "new" cameras and is realising that Canon just deliver warmed up vomit each time a new camera is announced.
Love it. Haven't watched the video and won't either. But from the looks of the guy I think he should grow up and move from his parents' house and start making his own money. Be a man. Then maybe he will have a more mature view on things.
