In what has become something of a festive tradition, Chris Nichols and Jordan Drake of DPReview TV sit down to play drinking games and cast their verdict on the year’s best and worst camera gear.
What with one thing and another, 2020 has been a challenging year for camera manufacturers but despite the difficulties, customers have been blessed with a huge range of equipment with notable technological developments seeming to arrive every couple of months.
Lenses definitely became more diverse with ever more third party manufacturers introducing glass that offers affordable alternatives to the major brands. Drake and Nichols’ choice for worst lens of the year is an interesting one, however, and I’d be intrigued to see if others agree, especially as it comes from a manufacturer with a very dedicated fan base.
Something that filled me with uncertainty was whether Nichols was going to make it through to the end of the video as by the halfway stage he was periodically horizontal. That said, Drake treated us to wonderful turns of phrase such as “Nailed the gender!” and “I don’t like it going in my mouth any more.”
Let us know your verdict on the best and worst cameras and lenses for 2020 in the comments below.
