    I don't war check him but for a while he had some knowledge of old Nikkor lenses that was useful but he drifted off into rant after rant about other channels with real bitterness. Most channel are Not good information but are efforts to make a living related to photography by people who were better YouTube personalitis than photographers. There is very good income from some channels. Those over 1 million subscribers earn well over a million dollars a year in ad revenue. Ken rails about affiliate links but he earns a lot from ad revenue himself that he never mentions. Clearly he is not only Not a photographer his images are below average of beginners. What turned me off his channel was his refuting physics with wild theories that areally nonsense. I am not a physicist but spotted his misreading of fundamentals so asked real scientist to watch and she said he was insane.....and agreed that he misunderstood done science that is not even questioned because of extreme accuracy of predictions mirroring observation, the real test of scientific theory.
    Most of the photography channels are gear channels. Most of them were dead wrong in their claims about the Z cameras which for tech, flexibility, ruggedness and performance are best in their class. The Sony fan boys a really usually beginners who hype equipment but never produces quality work. As a general rule pros avoid the brand but they are a big hit with beginners who buy based on feature list length and not on their actual needs. Pros never complain of lack of eye focus....only beginners "need" that or think it is essential. The most important focus related feature of any of the modernew cameras is manual focus aides like the very accurate focus peaking of the Z6/7 and a serious weakness in the Sony cameras.

    I agree with pretty much all of this.

    This is why I don't take most Youtube channels seriously. They're more about the money/attention than the actual quality of the content
