MasterRick says:

Is the cannon PowerShot sx610 worth it

Arun Kumar says:

Good review, and have you used any gimbal for stabilization while taking video with this camera or its inbuilt with stabilization

Jezre3l PW says:

You should do a video on the G85, especially do a video on the GH5 or atleast the GH4 Panasonic lumix

chrisny carol says:

Gabs Sofi says:

Would you recommend the SL2 over the 70D?

Lupulocéfalo says:

hi. I wanted to know if have ever tried the Canon SL1 camera? Im starting a youtube channel for beers and wanted to get a nice camera to match the videos a friend took for me (you can check their video quality in this channel). Since the price of the Canon SL1 are really affordable (half the price of SL2), I just wanted to know if you’ve got any comments on in, specially regarding the autofocus video mode. Nice channel.

snapouttait says:

Hi Sean! Thank you so much for all of the great information. I’m considering buying the sl2 for an intro to high school video journalism class. Along with the mic jack, is there also a headphone jack?

Patricia Brunelle says:

Would you share the name of the microphone? I like its size and mount. thanks-

Professor Heather Austin says:

Loved the b-roll on this video. Especially the bright green head band. That was so awesome.

LukasB Films says:

if someone is selling this for under 550 hmu

King of Cliché says:

Hi, I’m pretty new to your channel! I would like it if you could suggest either a good starter camera for a filmmaker in training around the $100 price range (could be used, I don’t care much about that) or suggest some features to look for in a really cheap camera. I was really wondering about a used canon vixia or maybe one of those action cameras that claim to shoot HD. I’d appreciate it if you could answer my question.

hari krishna says:

Canon 200d vs canon 800d vs nikon d5600

4.some video too

AG5X TECH says:

What’s your intro song called

Big Shot says:

Found your review really helpful. Subbed. Many thanks, man. Is it possible to get flat profile video shots from this camera?
Love the writing on blue behind you by the way.

Alok Saraswat says:

Hi Sean, are SL2 and Canon 200D same?

Kevin DiOssi says:

I shoot with a 1DX2 and 5D4 and I still bought this camera. I previously owned two SL1 cameras because their size and portability make them the absolutely perfect camera to take on vacation. I sure as hell am not bringing a 1DX2 on a fun trip, but bringing one of my full frame bodies has been cumbersome when I’m just trying to escape work and have some fun. This is a HUGE upgrade from the SL1 and I’m happy to using it. I really wish it had the AF system from at least the T6i, but the addition of Dual-Pixel AF makes it a wash. You’re not going to be shooting sports with this thing, you’re going to be creating images of moments and landscapes. It’s perfect for that.

GavinMerklinStuff says:

Hey I was wondering if you can do a review on the T5i I know it is old but I am thinking about getting it so can you please do a review

FanFusion says:

If you have the money, 80D or SL2?

Nikolas Marau says:

I think that 600$ isn’t very cheap

sam zalabany says:

Question: Have you seen the Sl2 in white? Per chance do you know anything about it, as it seems to be only available in Asia. And say, I picked one up via eBay, would it be relatively easy to get to grips with? Would there be any pitfalls or downsides to it.

Thank you sir!

YOU ARE MY SAVING GRAC E //YELLS . I was going to get a 70D but i only needed my camera to record tutorials/vlogs. And this camera is just perfect and because im really sickly its hard to pick up the 70D (my friend has one) anyways just THANK YOU

Ameer Ayesha says:

Hey Sean!
So I just bought a second hand Canon 70D, with like 50mm 1.8 STM lens (instead of the Kit Lens; it was still a bargain), but it’s too tight for like handheld vlogging.

I was wondering, what lens would you recommend for such a purpose?
I was planning to get the 24mm 2.8 STM lens, but would that be good enough, or should I go with something wider?
My budget is around like $100 – $250

Nice video btw. If I was patient enough to wait for this to be much cheaper in time, probably would’ve get it for like vlogging and stuff. Pretty much for cuz it’s lightweight.

Where do i get a ballhead for My gorilla pod?

sbw94 says:

Hey Sean! Great videos :)!

I was wondering if with the Rebel SL2 and Rode VideoMic Micro Compact you have hissing noise?
I just bought the SL2 but for the microphone I’m still wondering, I love the compact size of the little rode but I’m afraid of hissing noise cause pre-amps of Canon apparently sucks…

Can you enlight me pls? Thanks!

Domineque Taylor says:

The SL2 looks like the t5i. Is there a difference?

kokopellienglish says:

Always educational! Cheers for that. But do you know the Elf dude who wanted to be a dentist? (Rudolph) Change your hair and your views will go up. And, do you get much sun?
