    Designed for small people with small hands... he should be happy!

    Another entertaining but factually vacuous review from DR TV.

    I typically enjoy his reviews but I thought much to much time was spent on how it looks.

    I like the look of the E-M1! It is a modern style with some retro added in, a nice blend of the two. Many "retro" designs are very classic looking but lack any modern ergonomics. Most modern cameras look like lumps of melted plastic with a lens sticking out.

    What I do find weird with the E-M1 are the cheesy, amateurish features{like the collage thing that Kai made fun of} in a pro-summer level camera.

    It doesn't effect the usability in any way since you can use a myset in place of them.

    I like it for entertainment the other Canadian one " The Camera Store" or whatever its called does great reviews that cover more things between the two I get the solid info and the sarcastic side

    never watch a kai video without thinking entertainment first facts come second

    That seemed weirdly phoned in to me.

    Not his best review, but decent.

    I can see how the E-M1 might fit a new niche. Instead of spending a lot of time in post-processing,
    I can see how it easily could be used for such things as events, once you learn all the ingenous new features.

    That review was indeed hilarious! Sorry for EM1 user but Kai's opinion is what it is!

    It was actually mostly positive, apart from him ragging on the looks for, like, a whole 1/3rd of the video :)

    (I actually agree with him on that point though, I don't consider the E-M1 a handsome camera)

    I agree 100% with him on the looks. It does seem to have a personality conflict of sorts.

    Kai put it quite well, lets merge the 4/3 team and the M4/3 team and come up with a child of both worlds.

    I usually enjoy their reviews but I thought this one was awful. The entire review had a very negative vibe when it's clearly a very good camera.

    Yes I really like the Camera Store's reviews. A nice accompaniment to DR's.

    I liked their parody of Kai.

    He just needed to use the phrase "poppy-uppy flash" and it would have been perfect.

    It was pretty funny review. But I gotta admit, for me it was the looks that made me want it in the first place, so I guess it is a matter of taste. :)

    I hate to rain on any parades, but Kai is an idiot, incapable of a useful review. His reviews are more about him than any gear.
