You are very knowledgeably, wow. I didn't like the video though because every thing was "from back in the day." Your title is misleading.

On Air Mastering says:

You my friend are fucking thorough thank you!

FlashPocket says:

Thanks for making the video. I'm looking for a cheap vlogging camera and I couldn't find one brand new. The mic port is important for me so glad I found what I was looking for.

Hey can you tell me the best camera I can get for under 450$ in the summer of 2020? I would truly appreciate an answer. Have a great day!!

TechImaginist [Vijay Malayil] says:

Really good video. Thank you! Please add the year of manufacture of the camera in such videos.
Though cameras don't upgrade every year like smartphones do, a lot of things are improved in newer cameras like processing power / speed, connectivity options, overheating issues / non-stop video recording (especially for 4K) etc. So definitely going for a newer option is always better.

336 PROD says:

Thought this was unboxing therapy 🤦‍♂️

I don’t have social media says:

I am disappointed I got a canon powershot sx620 hs

Chris Neuman says:

Found this video a year and a half later and most of these cameras are way over $300 and most over $400. Did these cameras appreciate or something?

Slow Ham says:

I bought a Panasonic lumix gh2 because of this video. I now have three expensive lenses and I love it. The only bad thing is the adaptors and effective mm due to mirrorless. I have a 50mm, 250mm, and a 10mm. It’s a super cinematic camera, I am just shy about posting videos online of it. I’ve done a ton of kids photos and videos for their families with this camera. Love it.
