Humor: What Canon Actually Thinks About the DSLR Video ‘Revolution’

Andrew Reid of EOSHD created this parody video imagining what the big wigs over at Canon actually think about the DSLR video ‘revolution’ they helped kick off. He added his own subtitle translations to a viral meme video of a Spanish man laughing during an interview. (Sorry if you’re a Spanish speaker.)

The clip was made for a review Reid recently did of the $11,500 Canon C300 cinema camcorder. “…at the back of my mind throughout my C300 experience, I couldn’t help imagining this,” he writes.

Humor: Conan O’Brien Debuts Funny New ‘Complete Waste of a GoPro’ Segment

GoPro cameras, or rather action cameras in general, are amazing little devices that have enabled people to capture everything from the exciting to the harrowing to the downright weird. But there’s something they don’t put on action cam packaging that they should. The question: “do you actually do anything exciting worthy of an action cam?”

Following celebrities is a lot of fun, as you get to see a glimpse inside their world. What are they thinking? Where are they going? What are they doing?

BforBel.com knows this and took it a step further…all the way to Disney.
