Absolutely fantastic video. I give it an 11 out of 10, and bookmarked the website.

When is Canon going to do something innovative like retro fake aperture rings?  ;D

Soo good!

Fake aperture ring WTF.....

At least now I know I have been dressing all wrong, when I return to the real world, this will be my "go to" video or is that "Vine", to know how to dress and be taken seriously as a photographer....

Bugger the equipment, it's about the clothes and being hip.....

It was quite funny!

But I have to say, I'm surprised that so many people ACTUALLY liked it. It's probably true that a cheaper, D3300-like version would find a good market.

LOL.  The word that comes to mind for the Df is pretentious!

Thanks for sharing!

And therein lies the problem for the Df.  How many of those that were questioned knew anything about photography?  It was all about the look.  Even If a few were to dip their toe in the water, it's unlikely they would outlay so much on their first dslr.  Would and experienced photog put up with its dumb funtionality (Df)?  Having controls showing one value on the analogue dial but a different value on the digital is just stupid.  I looked at one the other day and just thought 'what's the point?'.  Once you get past the looks it just doesn't make sense.

However, I agree with you that a cheaper entry level version with smarter functionality would find a good market.
