Channels I Stopped Watching


I am a photographer user of Photography equipment and a 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. I also do not find it necessary to compare or trash talk a camera brand - if your camera system works for you then it is perfect for you.

Like many of you, I browse Youtube as a reference and come across channels that take a non-biases approach to their review/opinion I appreciate it. When channels do a dis-service to photography I take issues with them. Here are the Three YouTube channels I do not recommend and are a buffoonery of idiots. Do not be teased by the title to click and watch their videos, doing so is like paying them for their sad behavior.

#1: The Northrup's: Why? The Content is shallow and biased with little to no practical use in real-life photography and rarely any teaching moments it is mostly smoke and mirrors with a lot of jaw-jacking. If you like clickbait this is a Clickbait Channel. 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 meal, it 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 and claiming never to be a Nikon user again but always has ranted about Nikon. - Useless!

#3: That Old Tired Nikon Guy: Here is a flip-flopper who hangs on the fence trying to stay loyal all the while not being.  His famous video of a Looney Tune "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 - with a newly posted video "No More Sony" 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 would have him.

Flower Photography

I have a couple of photographic weaknesses, Birds and Flowers.  Whenever I am out doing some photography shooting regardless of 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. The great thing about flower photography is you really don't need any specialized equipment.  I have even taken flower photos with a fisheye lens. If you want to discover more about flower photography read on...

Nikon 800mm f/6.3 VR S Thoughts and Considerations

The evolving Nikon Z line of cameras and lenses gets more and more complicated when trying to make buying decisions in the Nikon Z Mirrorless ecosystem, which is a good thing. Now the Nikon 800mm PF 6.3 is available to tempt you into the world of Super Telephoto photography. You too may be tempted to take the plunge, considering the closest super-telephoto is over 10k, 7.5 pounds, and has a shorter focal length, the new Nikon 800mm PF F/6.3 might just be the killer lens.

Northern Cardinal - Photography

I am lucky to live in an area that has Northern Cardinals year round to perk up my backyard and when I go out for Bird Watchers day. These medium-sized birds frequent my backyard on a daily basis throughout the year and especially during the colder months when I put out food. Not too pushy at the feeder and shares the feeding areas with smaller birds without any fighting. If there is a perfect backyard bird the Cardinal just might be it.

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.
