Favorite YouTube Channels

Photo Tube

Let me set something straight! I love watching all these channels, each channel is a great resource and fun to watch: Why no 10 when they are all great, I am just waiting for the game changer- you know room at the top.

Here are my opinions about various Photography “Focused” YouTube Channels. Credit goes to everyone mentioned below!

Ratting Scale - 1 - 10

DigitalRev TV – Rating Unknown stars  - Channel URL: Not listed 
DigitalRev took a change late 2016 and  I dont recommend it any longer.

Matt Granger Channel – Rating 8 stars Channel URL:
Matt Granger was originally posted as “That Nikon Guy” but later changed to his channel name for better promotion of his photography rather than be branded Nikon. So let us discuss the Channel, I really like Matts style, models, locations, and demeanor. Matt projects as a non-biased source of useful photography knowledge geared toward actually showing how to do better photography with some simple techniques. Tina being the better-known model and now the co-host for the Inside The Photographers Studio is a wonderful down to earth person who just happens to be attractive. What I like best about the channel is the interactions between Matt and those he is working with coupled with his keen sense on how to convey a point so everyone can grasp and understand. The Channel has some very useful reviews, and opinions about gear both old and cutting edge. It is nice to see a no-nonsense channel with real people and useful content. Throughout the year I find myself visiting this YouTube channel to catch up on some new techniques from down under, and Matt’s latest reviews.  Matt also has a store for advancing your photography – check it out.

TheCameraStoreTV Channel – Rating 7.5 stars Channel URL:
The host of the channel is based out of Canada so you may guess in the winter months less outdoor locations- but the content still rocks! The channel has mostly good content with reviews that are appealing but are biased to the mirrorless side of things, and nothing wrong the mirrorless users!  That said if your a mirrorless fan this channel may be more appealing to you than some of the other DSLR only channels. Like some channels, they offer some not so serious content like one of the most unique and funny photos related video is this one "shootouts" Overall this channel has good content and offers solid insight on photography products.

This brings me to a bigger question would any of these sites above exist if they were to do all this without monetary compensation?  Some of the better sites are those who do it because they want to not because of money.

I live at the edge of the forest in semi-moist locations, I enjoy larva, and other delights. Although I am toothless and mostly warty, I am a sight to see.
