Lockdown photography and a vlog

Happy new year everybody! May your 2021 be much more fulfilling and less turbulent than your 2020. With the new year came a new camera for me (a few weeks before to be precise). More specifically this is a Nikon Z7ii for those of a technological bent; hot off the mirrorless press.

Warning: Jim is ever so slightly hard-of-having-hair. To avoid potentially permanent eye injuries please ensure you have suitable PPE before pressing play.
