  1. thanks Nick, I have been looking for a decent b camera, I'm a Nikon born user, and I just cant get over how bad the autofocus is in their movies. I have narrowed it down to this canon m6 or the Panasonic gh5 (take a hit on the auto focus for the massive frame rates and canons beautiful colour) being Australian the vlog scene here isn't that big, so walking around with the joby, a canon 70d and a rhode mic pro + would bring me a lot of unwanted attention, I think mirror less is the way to go. Quick question on the rhode micro, I have one but the recording quality is terrible on voice, with distortion on all close sounds mainly voice, only fix for it being turning the mic volume right down, but this results in a quiet recording obviously. I'm thinking I have a faulty mic, did yours display any of these issues on first use?

  2. Great video, Nick. That tripod looks perfect for vlogging… But would it be too small for shooting landscapes and wildlife? I have a 5Dm4 and various lenses… My current tripod is big and heavy and I need to address this but I'm not sure what to get.

  3. Nick, OMG the tripod centre column as a selfie stick, PERFECT! Brilliant! It never occurred to me, and I've only just lately been looking for solutions for that very thing only I'll be using something like a G7X setup initially. I have two tripods already picked out to do milti-duties for my DSLR + Vlog plans (Mostly hiking, urban wildlife, landscape). Thanks for the tip! Cheers from Toronto, Ont. CANADA.

  4. That looks like a great little vlogging rig Nick! When I started vlogging, I was just using my 70D, then when I sold that, for a while I was using my 1DX2…which is not small arm friendly. Lately I've been using my 5D4 and am looking for something more dedicated, like that. I'm also considering something like the SL2, because I have more lens options. Looking forward to your vlogs moving forward with the new setup!

  5. Maybe Micro 4/3 system would be better for you? They have wide angle primes. In someways I think 4k is important form the point of view that in five to ten years your videos will still look good. Sometimes I went back and watched some YouTubers I use to watch back ten years ago and those videos today don't look that good anymore. Some of those YouTubers filmed in 360 or 480 standard definition.

  6. Hi Nick. That's neat. Good trick with the mic. I agree about 4k/UHD for vlogs, a very large screen is needed to get the true benefit. Useful for covering cuts on a HD timeline of course, but that's perhaps not vlog territory. I liked the travel tripod. Very handy. I will probably get one. Thanks. Bob UK.

  7. Wow, didn't think of that Sideways Mic POsition. Basically destroys M6s one weakness for Vlogging. Way to go nick.
    Sadly there aren't many Canon Fast Wideangle Zooms. That are cheap and Light.

  8. Hi Nick, have just started vlogging and picked up the M6 for vlogging after much searchin. I wanted lightweight and this fitted the bill perfectly. The one thing I have found though is the camera with the kit lens makes a great walk about 1st camera to use – image quality is good enough. Also I have the adapter and stuck my 70-200 f4 on there and it worked great.

  9. Not much out there for the M mount. Maybe a suggestion to Tokina will get a native 11-16, or the Sigma 10-20 f3.5. Another option would be to adapt the Tokina a bit big and heavy though. Of coarse a m4/3's with a wide angle set to manual focus… well you know all of that. Just no ideal solutions.
