Fun trivia about the other camera YouTubers mentioned in this episode
While recording our annual Best and Worst episode for DPReview TV, Chris and I decided to add a twist to our drinking game. We wanted to find out how well we knew some of our YouTuber friends, so we asked them to tell us two facts about themselves: one, a thing plenty of people know, and a second fact that very few people would know. We’ve compiled them all for your reading pleasure.
