Top Gear is going through some tough times right now, so the online photography show DigitalRev has decided to take on the mantel of continuing the famous car show’s style and traditions. The latest DigitalRev episode is a Nikon D5… done in the style of Top Gear.
“We’ve decided to change the style of our show to commemorate the premature demise of our favourite motoring show – Top Gear – by doing all future videos in the Top Gear-style,” DigitalRev writes. If you love Top Gear, you’re going to love this episode.

Director David Robin created this humorous spoof of the TV show Shark Tank for the WPPI conference and expo that took place in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago. It features a number of well known photography industry figures (Roberto Valenzuela, Bambi Cantrell, Jerry Ghionis, Melissa Ghionis, and Gary Fong) as the investors and entrepreneurs.
Although they portray a couple of inept inventors in the parody, Melissa and Gary have found success with their actual products in real life. The Ghionis’ are behind the new Omega shoot-through reflector and Fong is well known for his Lightsphere diffusers.

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.

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.

Canon’s big ‘See Impossible’ reveal turned out to be a pretty big disappointment for us gear heads. Most headlines dripped with disappointment and one article led off its coverage with an image of Bart Simpson writing “I will never hold my breath for a Canon announcement again” over and over on a chalkboard.
The didn’t-turn-off-the-flash mirror selfie, the plane wing cloud porn photograph, the ‘this is my office for the day’ humblebrag, overuse of hashtags… all of them make an appearance in this humorous parody sketch by comedians Tripp Crosby and Tyler Stanton.
Dubbed ‘Selfies Anonymous,’ the video imagines what “a 12-step group for people who struggle with selfies” would look like.
