This was the first time I really made good use of the Viltrox 13mm f/1.4 lens. It’s pretty dark inside Yarrangobilly Caves, so it was useful. But with no IBIS on the Z Fc, you have to hold the camera very steady… and I kept forgetting to ensure it was in focus.

Bigger jump in subscribers because Michaela’s presentation on HF radio use for 4WDing included a plug for this channel - thanks for that!

Also, I’m out of Shorts. Will make another batch later, it may have been worth it… but am definitely focusing on longer form content for now, as it’s what I actually want to be making. X-Title Importer may now possibly be broken on current OS X as well - maybe I just edit the shorts in FCP and use CapCut to put the subtitles on…



In the first video of a new series, we visit the High Country. Travelling out to the far NSW side, our first goal is to climb Mt. Kosciuszko, detailing all the different ways it can be done, some easier than others. And at the same time, explore exactly how this was named after a key figure in Polish history with seemingly no relation to Australia.

And although this is the highest point on the Australian mainland, it’s far from the highest in Australian territory. We explore how the other high points compare - but they are a lot harder to get to.
