"Beastly-looking cameraman" for sure!

Matthew Kaminski says:

I think that’s great that it detects human and animal eyes regardless of mode.

pauldhoff says:

Why the hell do you kids use such a shallow depth of field on the face.

Edward Philip María Nafzger says:

Nice video guys

DaDonFather says:

Chris. I like the 2 tone effect you've got going with your hair and your beard. Just wonder which one is the natural color, hehe.

drawsam says:

-oodle dogs have human eyes.

Ter Idzard says:

Wow, since it is very obvious that there won't be to many new camera models per year in future, you figured that you can now make a new video about software upgrades for cameras.

Eirik Havre says:

What is the lens selection like for the Nikon Z cameras?

Mehrshad Rajabi says:

are you in saskatoon?

Isaac says:

Are you going to test the Olympus E-M1 III face and eye autofocus in the same way? Supposedly it's greatly improved, and you can see some other videos on youtube that showcase it.

Aidan Goldstraw says:

Never mind about all that, guys. How about the big news, which is that Jordan made a cameo appearance on America's Got Talent with his two daughters? Perhaps.

Reclusive Eagle says:

Chris: "If I want to disable tracking and focus on Jordan's eyes I can do that"
Camera: Focus box on eyebrows

Miłosz says:

I wish eos R will get more improvements.

tallaganda83 says:

It is so soothing to hear someone pronounce Z the correct way. That big nasal zee reminds of Sesame Street.

yourleftnut1 says:

I don't trust eye detect when shooting portraits. Can't risk it. I always use pinpoint focus

mikldude says:

"A very beastly looking camera man" 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
I bet he appreciated that 😁.

Gael32 says:

Animal eye AF should be changed to Dog&Cat AF. I tried it earlier on a Ball Python and the camera acted like it wasn't even there and just focused on the background! lol

Bryan Stewart says:

What's the deal with Chris' eyes always out of focus? Is that done purposefully??? Ironic, since this episode is in regards to firmware updates for eye detect AF on a different system.

Nic Restrepo says:

Canon cameras? From everything I’ve read and seen around here on theses cameras, They were behind Nikon mirrorless as it was already, how are they suddenly better?

BJ Nicholls says:

Not enough custom buttons now. Especially with the two custom button setup Chris describes.

CHAZ pfeiffer says:

I ever Texan on the dog when it tracks the dog I when his running at doesn't work very good😤

Ophelia De Beaufort says:

This video is just over 5 minutes long, and is packed with far more useful content than Jared Polins hour long clusterf*ck of a review. Thank goodness for DPReview.

Leon says:

Eye Detection is Disabled in Video Mode
