Darth Vader's youtube on D700, can anyone confirm?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8tckLRKilw

So far, I've only seen a few peeps complain about banding. I'm paranoid now. I'll be giving my camera a thorough look over tonight. Has anyone else received this email?

He does strike me as a practical joker

This isn't funny if it's a joke.

I can't believe ....

that no-one had stopped that degenerate from making these useless, pathetic review/videos. I wish he put himself to the freaking test of drilling or nailing down himself to a cliff somewhere!

What a waste of oxygen!!!

Re: Darth Vader's youtube on D700, can anyone confirm?

Why would he do this?

To make such a public, factual statement.

This would need to be super-true in order
to make himself look good - as an authority
of rumors, gossip, hear-say, etc. And it can
in no way be played-off as an assumed cal-
culation that there might possibly be some-
thing amiss with the body, as he states a
hard date & time of another entity's actions.

If his black & white public statement is any-
thing less than solidly true - exactly what is
he trying to do to himself ? Sure, he can
conjure a sense of emotion and uneasiness
for a brief period of time; though after that
period of time elapses, then what?

Then he leaves DPReview for a while, and continues making videos and posting them on Youtube and new unsuspecting people see them and panic, because they saw it on the internet, on a video, so it must be true!

Unfortunately, the internet is so big that there's really no way to spoil somebody's reputation anymore...

While the net can be a place where you can spread BS in the hope you'll be believed, sooner or later what goes around comes araound, and someone cuts you down. Couldn't happen to a more deserving nutjob.

Re: Darth Vader's youtube on D700, can anyone confirm?

What that guys said in the video might be true. If not, nikon should really do something to stop this rumour.

My D700 will arrive next Monday. I will probably return it right away and consider a buying lightly used D3...

Is this video legal ?

With such an explicit video, and directed toward cur-
rent and potential customers of the camera body, and
the released health of Nikon equipment as a policy in
general, is there not some sort of legal action Nikon
could take up against Mr. Spina?

Slander?

I'm still not sure what Mr. Spina is trying to convey in
his video, but if his allegations are misleading in any way,
and if it can be proven he is attempting to create mis-
leading information against an entity, such as Nikon,
would this not be an active attempt to harm such an
entity ?

Someone here should save this video to their own
computer, as Mr. Spina will likely pull the video in a
short period of time - as he's done before.

Myself saving this video to my own computer?

  • No Thanks!

I am sure Nikon's lawyers already have a copy of this video.

Hilarious

I will admit that I have a passion for loathing him that goes back to the Cookie_Monster/DarthVaderII days so I'm not exactly objective. But reading all the collected evidence in one place was just too much fun.

Who put that site together?

What's really sad are the comments on his youtube videos. It's clear that way too many people actually believe him.

Anyone know ASL?

Anyone know ASL? I don't, but part of me just looking at this gets the feeling this isn't actual sign language, he is just faking it. It just doesn't look right for what ever reason.
