    I’ve been a photographer for 10+ years and went to 5 different photography schools before that, and this is the first time i hear the true story about the 1 inch sensor. Thank you for being honest in a dishonest world.

  • Adam Ross

    The 1 inch sensor situation reminds me a bit of when people we first started getting into large storage sizes (GBs and TBs) and people were confused why their 500GB drive doesn't have 500GB.

    Thank you for being a massive Clip-Sharer and being outspoken on issues like this and right to repair. Thank you for bringing light to these issues and calling companies out. You're a class act.

  • The Story of my Life

    Yes, I have been harmed by tech company lies.

  • PioneerBlue

    This was a good video, but I feel like there's still a lot more that could be explored for this topic. Would love a part two.

  • qopoy dnon

    Marquis you do such a great job. I'd love to have more people with your level of integrity in mainstream entertainment and information media.

    I can’t see it becoming any less of an issue unfortunately - if anything, the more complex the tech becomes, the easier it is to fool the average consumer with meaningless specs, cause they have less and less of an idea on how the tech is actually working - Great vid though, we should keep calling it out when we spot it 👌

    Elon is the king of vaporware, I never believe his announcements until they’re fully released - they’re rarely the same

    The Channel "Engineering explained " did a great break down on this. that 1.99 wasn't just done with rollout, there was track glue down too. Another grip aid from the drag world.

  • Andrew Copple

    Thanks for the learning today! I definitely think pointing out companies misleading decisions is a huge benefit to customers of both those products and your reviews. I wonder if we'll ever get to see you and Louis Rossman on the same screen together.

  • James Beer

    You have just blown my mind on the 1-inch sensor fact. We need to start a petition for companies to use realistic terms.

  • Krastan Draganov

    Very well made video as always. Keep up the good work. It fascinates me that there is even a word 'vapourware' which describes this topic. The moral of the story is that we should never only look for the official specs because it is just marketing. Instead, we should look for reviews from creators like you.

  • Afrotechmods

    Mad respect that you can hang out with Elon and review his cars but still remain independent enough to call Tesla out on their marketing

    My favorite is Tesla's "Potential Savings" default price for their cars which includes "potential incentives and gas savings of $4,300" 😅

  • Adam.Adventure

    Pretty new to your channel but I really like the way you talk honestly with your views and give a fair account of both sides of any argument just to keep buyers well-informed. Thanks for the awesome work!

  • Charles Rodriguez

    I usually watch your tech reviews, but this was a truly interesting video. One of the reasons I bought a Sony RX-100 series is because of the 1" sensor. Although it is a great camera, and met everything I wanted, I do feel deceived. I am really enjoying these different videos you're putting out, very informative and interesting content!

  • Ryan Williams

    The “1-inch” sensor thing is mind blowing. Thank you for nudging the world toward truth. Love this video. ❤️

  • Mark Meridian

    Maybe do a video on the actual range you can expect from an EV under various conditions (winter, summer, hwy speeds) vs. what the EPA claims. The difference can be huge. I can't help but think that the EPA persists in their unrealistic testing approach to help promote EVs.

  • Tiberiu Chibici

    My biggest issue with these "lies" (even when technically they are not lying) is that they are meant to deceive, and make people think their products are better than they actually are.

  • Felan

    Same principle as the one inch sensor goes for the mft sensor. Micro four third. Yes, that sensor has a 4:3 ratio and that's why the name still fits but it comes actually from those old tubes too.
