Humor: Watch the “Creepiest Canon Camera Review Ever” (NSFW)

Reviewer “Frank Lasagna” compares the Canon EOS 6D vs the Rebel T5i, and he does it on his own way. For instance, he tests high ISO performance spying his neighbour’s wife at night with a zoom. AF is tested while the subject is “fleeing”. The video is a parody of Dave Dougdale’s comparison of the EOS 60D vs the Rebel T4i.

There is more weirdness in the video, and also some strong language. So I would say it’s NSFW.
