He is so entertaining with his real reviews. Takes a camera, tells us a little about it, shoots a roll of film while being filmed, shows us all the shots, gives a summary.

Highly recommended!

I’ve watched his show grow. It’s never been better! I like the no BS approach.

He’s pretty darn good at squeezing the magic out of each camera.

Him taking photos is the best part for me as he shows
every one in the video the moment it was taken. So we can see how his positioning and view point is immediately translated to the scene. And also how the film and camera handles that scene - lighting and exposure.

I enjoy his videos, once in London doing street photography he almost gave up as everyone was hurrying along looking only at their phones. It's a pleasant change not to have advertorial new gear reviews of the same stuff.

Another channel, mostly landscape, of which I am very fond is that of Steve O'Nions (not onions!) who is extremely dry humoured and goes through each important shot.

I do all my own black and white developing at home.

Been watching this guy for awhile now too. His channel and take on documenting photography is really solid. I also love his use of jazz to follow along with the videos. If you haven't seen his Hasselblad XPAN video with the dancer, it's worth a watch.

It is one of few photographic YT channels I follow. Solid content, good amount of humor and he does not give me cringes unlike some more popular channels do.

I don't always follow him but I agree that he's one of the better photography related YT channels. Very easy to listen to with great photographs.

Not the typical hot female model in exotic location type of photographs.

Another YT that is growing on me is Samuel L Streetlife.

I watched the linked video where he reviews the Olympus XA. He's holding it wrong! Wrap the fingers of your left hand across the top of the camera, and use your left thumb to adjust the focus. Trying to focus the camera with the index finger is an exercise it total frustration.

Other than, it was good video.

I don't follow. I'm trying to picture this but I hold the camera like I hold any camera, and would focus with my right index finger.

I advance, focus and frame, then taking it. If no rush, not sure, I frame, advance and frame, focus.

If right eye is in use, your right hand is holding camera and pressing shutter release. Left is for focus.

I'm talking about regular RF, not Moskva-5.

Just like Him:

If I focus with my right finger it is AF.

Gotcha, that's how I do it too. Funny you mention the Moskva5 because that camera really turns me around!

make a C shape with your left hand, and use your thumb to pull the focus lever.

Some of those shots could be tighter, and in one of the better shot, he cuts the dancer's shadow off. Ugh
