    Linus is a liar at 12:14 he says 'we've tried it out and weve been using it for a couple weeks' but if you go back to 11:30 you can see that all the passwords were only added 9 minutes ago an at most 36 minutes ago and it is highly unlikely that they filmed the part of the ad that long ago.

    Linus spends too much money and regrets it: for 13 minutes and 26 seconds.

    It sounds like RED is perfectly setting themselves up to be replaced by a Chinese knockoff that works just as well and uses standard storage and cables.

    You use 8k cameras to make videos which nobody watches as their devices won't support
    even if they have the hardware to watch that's only may be like 1% people

    "To anyone who has ever shopped for a RED camera..." NOOOOOO freaking hell, no one buys this camera except people from the cinema industry, this is the point you don't get. These things aren't built for some random video makers (dont get me bad you might be a great youtuber, I doubt you're a great cinematographer). And If you are willing to spend that much in a row why are you freaking ordering two at the same time? How can you spend so much without having any clue about what will be delivered to you? And then act surprised "There is no accessories blablabla". Man if I had to spend that much, I would triple check every single details about what I'm ordering before paying anything...

    People should listen to corridorcrews rebuttle to all of this. They explain pretty decently for the average person to understand why this stuff costs what it does. Linus doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to this camera lol

      Carlos GUTIERREZ SANCHEZ 11 days ago

      To be fair the red handle has buttons and the Apple stand doesn't. Those are extremly good 500 buttons
