This was the first video with footage from the Nikon Z Fc in it - you’ll notice things have depth of field!

The 18-200mm is a nice lens, but is noisy when it refocuses.

I discounted the Z Fc’s kit lens, the DX 16-50mm, which is surprisingly good. We’ll see more on that later.



Mt Buangor State Park was the location of one of our early adventures. But this time we’re there in winter, and the weather’s very different.

We knew it wouldn’t be great, but it turned out significantly worse than forecast.

Parts of this are also filmed on a different camera to usual… see if you can spot the difference!
