Canon just announced it, so I’m going to compare the Canon 5D Mark IV to the 4-year old 5D Mark III. I’ll touch on what’s new, what’s the same, what I wish they would have put in this camera, and what I recommend to someone who currently films video on Canon cameras and lenses.Read More
I just got back from a trip from Portland, Oregon. While I was there I tried to concentrate on being with friends and staying less “plugged in”. When I got back I realized the YouTube channel had surpassed 10,000 Subscribers!
I wanted to put a video together detailing my motivations for running a YouTube channel.

Adding closed captions to your videos is beneficial because they allow your video to be consumed by a wider audience, but making them can be a huge time suck. You should be spending that time working on your next video instead.
I have been getting a lot of questions about the best way to add closed captions to YouTube videos, so in this video I walk through my preferred method and service I pay $1/minute to add closed captions.Read More
In this episode I go into detail on four microphones that I would recommend to fellow YouTubers. Each have pros and cons and each is in a different price bracket.Read More

I don’t typically choose to review lenses because there isn’t much to talk about or show other than comparing footage shot through it and there are so many variables (like what kind of camera it is attached to or compression on said footage) that I don’t really like even doing that.
This Sony G-Master series 85mm lens is different though. It is one of the few lenses I’ve used that actually has features that change how I might film or photograph something.Read More
In this video I explain which of the many adapters I recommend getting, my experience with the speed and reliability of auto-focus in both photo and video mode, and whether I even recommend keeping your Canon lenses when you make a switch to mirrorless cameras.Read More

In this video I unbox the Sony RX10 III, show you what comes with it, and I suggest two items that you should purchase alongside it.
With features like a 24–600mm optical zoom lens, 4K at different frame rates, 960fps slow motion, and crazy fast auto-focus, it is hard to dislike the Sony RX10 III. All in all, if push came to shove and I had to grab one camera off the shelf to use in any situation I think I would find myself reaching for it.Read More
