    This followup version is way better than the "girly" vid. Kai has redeemed himself!

    Gotta love Kai. His "reviews" are a nice change of pace from a lot of the other reviews I've watched/read..

    Yeah, I like him a lot. And this MANLY review is a lot better than the first GIRLY review. :cool:

    But I'm still surprised he doesn't see ANY utility for shooting with the flip screen. He keeps acting like its only good for shooting from ground level or from up in the air, but I guess he never shot with a twin lens reflex in his youth (I guess he's still IN his youth) because it never seems to occur to him to shoot from his belly or waist area with the camera braced against his body. Which is how I shoot the vast majority of the time with this camera. And is the ONLY reason I chose it over the EP3.

    Oh well, you can lead a horse to water....

    "The EP-fwee is my favourite m43's camera............... until they update it in a few months time." :rofl:

    I do love his stuff though - he seems to exist in a bubble where he can't actually see anyone else around him......

    LMAO!!!

    I love his reviews. Over the top, but entertaining and blunt.

    But don't forget the EP3 has a built in flash!

    Oddly, I'm more interested in the E-PL3 now than I was before. In a way he's doing us a favor by light-heartedly addressing the elephant in the room, making the stereotype just seem silly...like dudes in Miatas.

    In a world where everyone is trying to sell you something, being openly biased and unapologetic is welcomed.

    Are you trying to justify your recent miata purchase by chance...? ;)

    No, but if I had a sticky mustache and tribal tattoo like Kai, I'd consider it. :smile:

    Given how self-important so many camera reviews are, Kai is so refreshing. Oddly, despite the humor, I actually like many of his comments because he is more concerned with using the camera than just looking at tests.
     
  16. Sorry Kai. This was the first video where I had to force myself to keep watching, and then stopped it before the end anyway.

    Ya.. I am 64 yrs young.. I like the flip screen because my Dad had a Rolleiflex camera back in like 1966 that he let me handle and shoot.. the flip screen takes me back to those days, not to mention it is a good lens for inconspicuous street shooting..

    Kai may not like it. I bet Lok does. He owns a E-P2 I believe.

    My favorite review was were he was making fun of the Sony Next and treating it like a over paid celebrity.

    Alambi is supper cute too.
