• Nikon 17-28mm F2.8 Z Lens | The One BIG Issue!

    The brand new Nikon 17-28mm F2.8 Z mount lens is now available for pre-order. This is Nikon’s third wide angle zoom lens to be added to the Z mount line up. Currently includes the Nikon 14-30mm F4S and Nikon 14-24mm F2.8S lenses. In this video, I talk about the pros and cons and the one BIG issue I have with it. Well, actually there’s three. At we are seeing a more diverse line up of Z lens with the addition of the Nikon Z 17-28mm f2.8. Eventually we’ll see a Nikon Z 70-180mm F2.8 to round out the trilogy. Will be interesting though to see how prices goes in the…

  • DJI Osmo Action 3 | Why You SHOULD And SHOULDN’T Upgrade!

    The DJI Osmo Action 3 has now been announced. But is it worth upgrading from the DJI Action 2 or even the first DJI Osmo Action? In this video I check out the main new features and specs of the DJI Osmo Action 3 and give you reasons why you should and possibly shouldn’t upgrade. I switched to using the Osmo Action camera from a GoPro a little over a year ago and have not looked back since! It’s so nice just have a camera that does everything it is supposed to. Switch on, go into record, respond to voice commends, just to name a few. I have made another…

  • Nikon Z50 VS D750 & Z7 | Crop Sensor VS Full Frame | Astrophotography

    In this video I compare images from the Nikon Z50 VS Nikon D750 photographing the Milky Way with the same settings and same lens (Nikon AF-S 14-24mm F2.8G Lens). Then I compare images of the Nikon Z50 vs Nikon Z7 photographing and videoing the full moon with the same settings and same lens (Nikon AF-S 80-400mm VR Lens). It’s a Nikon crop sensor vs full frame astrophotography shoot out. Some of the results did surprise me a little. I was actually surprised in some of these comparisons especially the Nikon Z50 vs D750. IF YOU ENJOY MY VIDEOS YOU CAN HELP SUPPORT MY CHANNEL VERY EASILY. Simply purchase my images…

  • Nikon D750 Astrophotography | My FIRST Outing!

    I can’t believe it’s taken me over 5 years to do some astrophotography with my Nikon D750. The reason being is because I normally use my Nikon D850 for astro. But on this one night I finally made the decision to take the D750 instead… and I’m so glad I did! I teamed the Nikon D750 with my Nikon AF-S 14-24mm F2.8G ED lens. The low light with low noise capabilities of this camera really did surprise me when post processing the final image. The Nikon D750 really is wonderful for astrophotography. I think the Nikon D750 will go down as one of the great DSLR’s along with the D850.…

  • Nikon Z7 – BEST Bird Photography Session EVER!

    Normally don’t use my Nikon Z7 for bird photography, but in this bird photography outing I’m so glad I had this camera instead of my usual Nikon D850. Being able to switch between photo and video easily while not taking my eye away from the viewfinder allowed me to capture some magic feeding moments with one of my fav birds, the Osprey. I teamed the Z7 with my Nikon AF-S 80-400mm lens via the Nikon FTZII adapter. Surprised how well the Nikon Z7 was for bird photography in the end. For most of the shots in this video I used the focus settings of Single Point and Wide Area Small.…

  • Nikon D750 + Nikon 80-400mm | Long Lens Sunset Photography

    No secret, I love my Nikon D750 for sunset photography. One of the many reasons why I have not sold it is because of its reliability, dynamic range and wonderful image quality. In this video I combine the camera with my Nikon AF-S 80-400mm lens for some sunset photography at Bargara in Queensland, Australia. Using my Nikon D750 for sunset photography in this video, made me aware of just how much I really love using this great little camera. I first bought this camera back in 2017 as a backup for my D850. I realised very quickly this D750 was magical for doing both photos and video, and I’ve used…
