YouTuber Buys and Tests All the Cheap Cameras on Wish

We all know that if something seems too good to be true, then it probably is. Even though many of us have learned that lesson the hard way, the lure of a cheap deal can sometimes be too strong to resist. If you've ever been tempted to make a sketchy photography-related purchase online, this video is a must-watch.

Popular YouTuber Sean Callaghan is back once again, buying all the questionable tech he can find from the e-commerce platform Wish. This week, Callaghan focuses on cameras and other photography-related items to test so we don't have to. While many of the products may look familiar, the brand names and price points are considerably off. DSLRs, mirrorless, action, and web cameras feature in the video and are all purchased at a fraction of the price you'd normally expect to pay. The cheapest camera costs just under $8!

It will come as no surprise to read that most of the camera equipment he buys is complete garbage. There are a few pleasant surprises in both the action camera and accessory department, but most are well worth avoiding. While this video is entertaining to watch, it is a good reminder to us all that if something seems too good to be true, then it normally is. The video also reminds me of the saying "buy cheap, buy twice" and is something many of us probably wished we learned earlier on in our careers.

It is a fun video but some of the parts of the video disturb me a bit, he's trying to show us the video quality but his video isn't even 4k and the 4k footage he wants us to see isn't fullscreen, how can we know the videoquality if we can't even see it? Also how can he be so long on Youtube and not even know youtube has been doing 4k for more than '4 year?

I don't think that many people care about 4K on YouTube.

You'd be surprised.

I remember at least a few YouTuber I watch talking about how 4k is only low single digits percent of views.

Vast majority are 1080p and 720p.

I watch more YouTube than broadcast television. and on a 4K TV... I care about 4K YouTube!!
