    Reason with me, tell me why I shouldn't let myself watch video after video, why I should get on with my life and catch the soup on the stove before it burns, and why Kai and Alamby and Lok aren't as hilarious as my addled wits seem to think.

    Yeah I barely listen to the actual reviews, the streets of Hong Kong are too damn interesting to watch.

    They're entertaining to me, and occasionally there's a bit of actual useful information. For example in the pro photog cheap camera series.

    I really enjoy that series - I think it's a fun idea.

    I enjoy most of their videos. They can be entertaining. I like Lok, he seems like a nice guy - and I enjoy his video shooting tips series.

    I like pro photog cheap camera series the best :thumbup:. I always seem to learn something from these.

    I enjoy watching the Digital Rev videos but I treat them mostly as entertainment with a light sprinkling of not too technical information. Having said that they are also good advertising and I've bought a few things from Digital Rev that I wouldn't have bought if I hadn't been watching their videos.

    The clips are entertaining but the actual information to entertainment ratio is pretty low and their conclusions are kind of questionable. I'm not especially interested in NEX models, but in one clip they pointed out how ridiculous some guy looked shooting with a NEX + adapted lens since the lens was so much bigger than the camera, while in a different video they pointed out how great it was that you could adapt xbawks hueg canon tele and zoom lenses to the eos m body. Which is kind of a contradiction. If it's awesome for Canon then it should be awesome for any brand.

    I would like to buy Kai, Lok, and Alamby a dinner and cut up with them.

    Now that would be more entertaining to watch than most of their videos.

    But, once in a while they do provide useful info.

    I bought a camera from Digitalrev once... Canon Kiss... Asian version of T2i.

    I've watched a couple - when they were reviewing some of the :43: gear. I don't search them out and I'm definitely not a regular viewer. Mildly entertaining, somewhat useful.
