You would expect that rational adults wouldn’t be influenced by snakeoil salesmen and blatant boosters, but clearly we’re no different in kind from ditsy young girls who endlessly watch YouTube videos of pouting, primping and non-stop talking “influencers”
The worst thing is some of those adults post here saying they will leave Pentax because they saw Jason Lanier or Tony Northrup or whoever tell them they need the latest ftom Sony or Fuji marketing.

I'd hardly put the two of them in the same category.

YouTube sensations, Neokind, depending on clicks or commercial sponsorship to survive, journalism is not their concern.

Superficiality is the order of the day, detail, depth, balance and nuance are unimportant.

Check out The Angry Photographer for just one example of the worst kind of self-important vlogging.

Pretty accurate information on Nikon and Fujifilm systems,as well as some good experienced legacy lenses from many high quality optics producers(including Pentax and Takumar).

Some may not jell with his personality but thats their choice.

Again, I wouldn't put them in the same category. Whether or not you like the opinions of the Northrups, they mostly offer substantive videos. I have found their content to be helpful, informative, and thoughtful. They do indeed have their opinions, but they are opinions that I respect far more than others due to the substance offered and breadth of their content. I don't know enough about the Angry Photographer to offer an opinion (I only saw one video, and was not positively impressed by it.) I've seen a handful of Jason Lanier videos, but the overall impression was negative. To be blunt, I found him to be a prick, and a shill for whomever was paying him (Sony.) But, I could hardly put the Northrups in the same category as the other two.

Yes, i agree...However, to his credit he does bring some reasonable knowledge to YT.I'm not a subscriber but view the content I'm interested in.


Amazingly, i rate him higher than some(but not many).

Propagoose would be more appropriate. God, that was awful. Why would anyone pay money to sponsor that, let alone take it seriously, even as satire?

And he had the worst haircut since Welcome Back Kotter...

WHATS next?




The "Big 3" are announcing What?

Nikon definitely FF M/L....Canon is unknown but possibly FF M/L?...And $$$ony stated last year that they were expecting CaNik to give them competition.

Very Interesting.

PS, the minor players are coming in for the side skirmishes and definitely will put the cat amongst the pigeons.
