  1. Hello Kai, great show! BIG fan! I have been watching all these videos by DRtv since the time I got my first P&S camera. I had been doing okay with my photography but I wanted to get a better camera. As usual, there was a lot of confusion about which camera to go for. After seeing all the endless videos about the best beginner DSLR, endless videos about camera comparisons, and reviews I got even more confused.

    I want to thank you for making all the learning FUN and I have been such a BIG fan of your videos that I watch them like an actual TV show (although on Youtube), over and over. Well, this was going to be my first camera and probably the only for a very long time. Upgrading from a basic CCD sensor Sony P&S (h100) was not only tough but frightening as I had to make just the right choice, and now I have the amazing alpha6000 with dual lenses. Thank you for your review, of all the people on the internet I trust your reviews the most.

    Kai you rock!

  2. Should I change my Nikon d5200 for a mirrorless camera? I want something easier to carry around (A camera i could bring with me everywhere, but isn't a phone camera) Is mirrorless the way to go? a tilting screen, wifi, rich color, variety of lenses (Or hopefully pancake lenses) even good quality video would be fantastic. I'm just a casual semi-serious photographer 🙂 What kind of camera should I get?? 🙂 hopefully one that's not overly expensive

  3. So I have a Nikon D700 which I still love, but I want to shoot some video. I've been considering buying a D750 and getting rid of my D700, but I just love my D700 quite a bit still. Now upgrading to a D810 seems like a good option, but it's a little bit too expensive for my budget.

    I have also though of keeping my D700 for photo and perhaps using my Nikon lenses on a GH4 or something like that, which I think is possible with converters.

    Are there any others who have had these considerations? Any opinions?

  4. Typical Brits… taking their sweet time before getting to the point.

    And, I did not expect that British English voice from that Chinese dude.

    Does that make me racist? lol

  5. Hey, your body language doesn't necessarily communicate class, come to think of it, not at all, stop making fun of your motherland, whatever you say, you're still back under our control, instead of going off on your own with your army like ballsy folks in Taiwan, cut the racist crap.
