This should have been posted 1st April.
I admire his balls, but his knowledge is very limited.
He mentions pepsi and coke and I do think he‘s been snorting it.
Just take this video with a huge pinch of salt or as he says, “a bigger shitter”

They all SUCK!!
Zenith any day :-)
Sorry, late for the game, but I know what you mean. What a waste of time. It's not the camera, it's YOU. You are in charge of your own tools and it's up to you to learn how to get the best out of it.
Actually, I started off with a 35mm Zenith and went onto Pentax, then Nikon, then when we hit the digital world, I use and am staying with Canon. Why, I have a collection of lenses from Canon and I am comfortable with their products.
My friend is a massive Nikon user and we don't give a TOSS!
Happy shooting to everyone and to all Zenith users. They ROCK! (I think)

Hello Mike
Tight bugger here :-)
Really informative video and gave a lot of ideas.
Reading the description from your sight gave an important reminder about light trailing off, Doubling your distance, What a difference it makes.
Thanks again for the video. Just shows you listen to your readers/watchers/subscribers and you do your best to help.
One happy tight bugger!

Your FAQ are excellent pockets of information, which got me thinking.
I went back to Introduction to Camera Lenses and as I was experimenting with my camera and lens, I noticed there is an option on my camera called Autofocus/Drive. I went to the manual and saw that on this option I can adjust the sharpness of the lens by a certain amount of increments -/+ 0 to -20 and 0 to +20.
The clever thing is, the camera knows which lens you have attached when you adjust the settings, so you never get the same settings if you have swapped lens.
I took some test shots of a newspaper headline using Live View and after adjusting the sharpness from one end of the scale to the other, I did see a difference in sharpness.
My setup was a Canon 7D, 18-135mm Lens, AV mode and Live View. Using Live View I zoomed in at x10. I also used auto focus mode.
I don't have the best lenses in the world, my collection consists of the kit lens, 18-135mm (which I do like) the Canon 100mm Macro and the Canon 50mm f/1.4
Do you think there would be a noticeable difference if using this option on different quality of glass/lenses?
And, if Autofocus is so good, which it is, why have this option?
I'm thinking maybe when the quality of light is not so good, or something in the distance seems a little out of focus, then this could help.
I'm probably wrong, but I will experiment more with the other lenses.
Sorry for the length of thread.
Great videos and looking forward to your course coming.
All the best.
