Channels I Stopped Watching


I am a photographer and Photography equipment, user and reviewer. All the equipment I review I own or have purchased for the review, some I sell on eBay following the review because the equipment is below my threshold of acceptance. I like and enjoy quality over quantity.

Like many of you, I use Youtube as a reference and second opinion, and when the Youtube channels take a non-biases approach to a review I appreciate it. When channels are like Chameleons or Rant then it takes me to another level of frustration. Here are the Three YouTube channels I do not recommend. Meaning - do not be teased by the title to click and watch the video, doing so is like paying them for their bad behavior.

#1: The Northrup's: Why? The Content is shallow and biased with little to no practical use in real-life photography. If you like clickbait this is a 100% Clickbait Channel you may enjoy its absurd content. Titles Like Nikon going Bankrupt, Not In my Bag "Nikon", and Sony Won! how ludicrous.  They gave the illusion of moving to Sony but all the while trying to hang on to Nikon for a free lunch is laughable. This channel is only in it for the $$ and is not a Photography Channel.

#2: The Fro Knows Nothing: This dude went to photography school YEARS ago and worked in a photography store in Philly, but yet knows little about photography. He pretends to use a Nikon Z to illustrate how bad the autofocus is and in turn illustrates how ignorant he is in the setup and use of Nikon's Autofocus features. Since Nikon kicked him to the curb he now dedicates his time ranting on Nikon.

#3: That Old Tired Nikon Guy: Hangs on the fence trying to stay loyal all the while not being.  His famous video of saying "Good Bye Nikon That's All Folks", the entire video features him boxing up his gear and sending it to KEH. Later seen using Sony - and now trying to get back on the Nikon food wagon - what a Joke. I hope Nikon sees him for what he is.

#4 Bonus: The Angry Photographer:  You know that bald dude who rarely makes it out of the house and sits behind a desk and rants on Nikon all the while claiming to have more Nikon gear than all his subs combined. He likes Fujifilm cameras I like Fujifilm cameras. He should give up on trying to kill Nikon and focus his attention on the positive points of Fujifilm. He is not sponsored because no camera company wants to.

Improve Focus for a Nikon Z6 or Z7 Camera

Improve Focus For a Nikon Z6 or Z7 Camera: When I first reviewed my new Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 mirrorless camera two years ago I was somewhat critical of the focus performance in an otherwise excellent camera. Now after 2 years, and several firmware updates I am much happier with my Nikon Z mirrorless cameras for sports and wildlife photography. Why? It starts with understanding Nikon's Focusing system and applying settings for your photography needs.

Nikon Z7 for Landscape Photography

Nikon Z7 For Landscape Photography: I used my Nikon Z7 for a few days of Landscape Photography - It was an amazing experience using the Nikon Z7. Overall it is an excellent camera better suited for landscaped than the mighty D850 - everything you need in a small, portable, lightweight, high-resolution mirrorless camera for your landscape needs.

Dragonfly Photography in the Summer

Dragonfly Photography in the Summer: I was chilling out this Saturday not motivated to do anything other than clear up some backlog on this site.  The weather was going to be hot, humid, and miserable and I had no inclination to go anywhere.  Then I started to browse around and ran across a few Dragonfly images and realized I just don’t have enough!

Flower Photography

I have a couple photographic weakness, Birds and Flowers.  Whenever I am out doing some photography shooting regardless what my intentions are, if i run across a great looking flower I stop and take a photo or try to incorporate the flower into my scene.

Nikon Z7 & Z6 One Year Later

Nikon Z7 & Nikon Z6 One Year Later: Well, it has been well over a year of using both the Nikon Z7 and Z6 and I wanted to share my experience with others who might be considering moving to a Nikon Z mirrorless or fellow users of the Nikon Z camera.

Nikon 24mm f/1.8 S Lens

Nikon has announced yet another S lens in their line-up, the Nikkor 24mm f/1.8 S lens.  The big question I receive is is it worth the price or should I wait for the f/1.4S lens?

On The Trail With a Nikon 400mm

I had the opportunity during my vacation to explore the Nikkor 400mm out in the field over the course of two weeks in various weather conditions from hot, rainy, humid to dusty.  This lens delivers on all fronts an exceptional experience and performance with a price tag to match.
