After Kai and Lok, another member of DigitalRev TV has decided to leave. Warren Ng is not the member whose face you would see often, but he was behind filming, editing, producing and directing the DigitalRev material. He began working for them in January 2016, and after a year, he decided to follow Kai and Lok’s footsteps. Was it jumping off a sinking ship?
The news that Lok Cheung and Kai Wong left DigitalRev TV certainly shocked their fans earlier this year. After they’d parted ways, it seemed like DigitalRev were struggling to keep the viewers’ attention. But now they’ve launched a new channel called Burst Mode. After a seemingly rough period, they may be experiencing a Christmas miracle and actually getting back on track.
There was a time when the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8VR was the lens I used most often. I was mostly shooting portraits on location. Once I started moving toward the studio and to animals, I opened up my options. So, a 50mm and 105mm macro suddenly became my go-to glass.
Now, I’m getting back out on location and find myself using a 70-200mm more often again. I did miss it and I’ll never get rid of it, although I may still neglect it occasionally. In this video from DigitalRev, Kai gives us his 5 reasons why everybody should have one.

As flawless as we might present our photography lives to be on social media, there are times when being a photographer isn’t nearly as glorious as it sounds.
Need a laugh break? Take a look at the latest installment form DigitalRev. This time, the team is poking a little fun at film photographers by spouting off some of the (ahem) more self-righteous things that tend to come out of film enthusiast’s mouths. Of course, it’s all in good humor, but the look Kai gets while condescendingly mentioning how easy it is to take a photos with a digital in close earshot of a DSLR sporting photographer (2:39) is kinda priceless.[Read More…]
Who doesn’t love a good hack? Kai is here to share a handful of some of his favorite hacks as he shows you how easier ways to transport your tripod, create bokeh kits without having to cut tiny shapes out of paper, and support your camera without a tripod, along with a few other tricks. Some of the hacks have been around for a while, and some of them the majority of you will never find the need to try–but, with Kai’s dashing sense of humor, even if you will never try one of the hacks, you’ll at least have a good laugh while you’re learning about them.
Here you go:
In the latest Cheap Camera Challenge on DRTV, Kai called on the celebrated fashion photographer, Lara Jade to conduct a fashion shoot in the streets of Hong Kong. Though Jade was given a professional model and a couture wardrobe to photograph, the camera Kai had her work with takes the term “toy camera” to an all new low as far as quality is concerned. However, being the creative she is, Jade brings in a heap of little accessories to shoot through including a drinking glass stolen from the hotel and a cheap plastic beaded bracelet she picked up from a street vendor during the shoot.[Read More…]
