    Yet, here you are. ;)

    I find that you can easily identify wannabe photographers by their habit of accusing others of being wannabe photographers.

    And yes, I’m aware of the irony of that statement. ;)

    DigitalRev’s videos always have me in stitches, a superb presenter. “Hold it like this, you have the ability to finger two rings at the same time!”, LOL!

  • Vin Weathermon

    “The Mr. Bean”….had to admit this was pretty funny and creative. Maybe even cost him a lens :-p

    That was actually one of his better videos and for noobs there was actually a few real tips mixed in there! Hopefully they can identify the few real ones from the sarcastic ones hahah

    I have a friend who goes to a lot of high performance driving / racing schools. He has told me that without fail every class has at least one douche nozzle who shows up wearing Ferrari driving shoes and fingerless gloves. I have found that the same type of thing holds true for photography classes. The guy who walks around pointing out the short comings of other peoples gear. The guy in the khaki photograhy vest. The guy shooting in a classroom while the instructor is speaking. The truth is really not that far from the satire in this video.

  • Bill Binns

    That was just a “kit lens” anyway. Any real pro will tell you that a kit lens is garbage.

  • Vin Weathermon

    Pretty sure that was obvious…and I can do some amazing things with just about any lens that still works :-)

  • William Richards

    You forgot the big leather or chunky silver wristband…classic pro photog gear!


    0.25 is his fly open?

  • Jeremiah True

    Oh no you didn’t

  • Eugene Chok

    lol some legit techniques in there !

  • DaVolf

    this is totally wrong everyone knows that shooting photos with a RED Epic at 120fps is the way to shoot photos. This video should be renamed “ancient techniques”

  • Alexander DiMauro

    I’ve seen that pink camera in other videos from DigitalRev, it’s been dropped many times. I think it’s his ‘stunt’ camera.
