  • This phone's camera is SICK, plain and simple. Gotta wonder about the 1.2K 👎? Apple haters...? 💁‍♂️Matti did a great vid on it... seems like the 12 does better on color than the 12 Pro; I wonder if it's an editing or exposure issue (you didn't mention the exposure feature...). Really looking at getting one on my next upgrade. Get the next video out soon!

  • you should try out the Sony Xperia 1 ii or 5 ii. Really curious what you think of that.

  • The guy on his bike in Chinatown on an exposure of “about 3 seconds” (6:55): surely not? He’s only moved about half a metre. If I’ve misunderstood, please let me know. I can’t believe you’d say something wrong yet I also don’t understand how that can be a three second exposure.
