Website: DigitalRev Camera Reviews & Videos

At a time when I am preparing for my trip to Tokyo, my sister said she has had enough of the Panasonic Lumix FX 3, which I have had enough long ago before I gave it to her, so it is time I offer her my current Canon IXUS 860 IS to her, while I buy a new one for myself ...

So with limited budget and the fact that I love buying things at a very low price, I am going for a compact camera that falls below $4000, or $3000.

And while I was doing my research, I found some great stuff for your English learning!!!

Check this out! DigitalREV TV

Kai has a strong British accent, probably due to his product reviewer profession. I might have to sound like that if I am doing a recording too! Not sure if you would like that, but oh well, I like this whole channel. I also like the website, because I can easily find the camera models I like to see and get a reference price. Well, I don't think I will buy there, but I get a rough idea of how much a camera would cost.

Kai gives detailed advices, tests camera performances and compares them with other hot picks, he uses both British slang (noticeably, "bloody") as well as American one ("All show and no go"). He might sound / act a little pretentious, but without the pretentiousness, it wouldn't be fun! And I just can't stop watching his video reviews, despite the fact that the models aren't that pretty...

My choice of camera after watching the video? I'm going for the Canon Powershot S90. I want the grey product though.
