  1. Dear Marques, this video is SO WELL MADE… reminds me that you are who you are because of the way you do things 🙂
    Perfect. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Seriously man, did you compare a cellphone camera to a bottom rung Hasselblad? This video seemed more like a way for you to brag about owning a low end medium format. Let's compare what you spent on the Hasselblad to what the average consumer spends on a smartphone. hahaha… This video was stupid. There is no comparing a 20-40 thousand dollar camera to a smartphone camera. One has true lens bokeh, the other fakes it with edge detection. One takes much larger prints at 50MP and the other is 12MP at best? One shoots RAW one jpeg. Smartphones can never be where DSLR/Mirrorless full frame/Medium/large format cameras are. If you're going to show off your hasselblad, do it in a less douchey manner.

  3. No doubt Pixel 2 is the best out right now, but I’m still cool and happy with my iPhone X ??? as long as it’s not taking flip phone quality photos, I’m grateful ??? Also, these cameras are only gonna get better and better in years to come ????

  4. You didn't mention the portrait mode in nexus and first gen pixel devices where camera is being moved forward while shooting the picture in order to calculate the depth of field. This mode makes sense in faking shallow depth of field with inanimate objects, where there are no people in frame for reference.
