Kaiman Wong is back at it, showing that a Nikkor 600mm lens can shoot clay pigeons too – just not in the destructive sense. Who will win?
Joined by British photojournalist, Paul John Bayfield, the pair go head to head in three, close rounds. Paul is armed with a Nikon AF-S 600mm f/4, attached to a Nikon D5. A surefire combo for quick shooting, and arguably perfect for fast-paced sport photography. I won’t ruin the fun for anyone, but Kai is surprisingly good behind a gun. I wish he’d picked up the camera himself, it’s what we love him for, but for the sake of a good challenge it worked out.
Kai’s been working hard on his new channel, since leaving Digital Rev back in November. In fact he recently celebrated hitting 250k subscribers on YouTube. Outside of his personal channel, CVPTV picked him up for a Panasonic GH5 review. All in all he’s not doing too badly at all.
This kind of content is rare, and it’s a pleasure to see. If Mythbusters or Top Gear style gear reviews were more common then I think we’d all be researching a lot more cameras. Maybe leaving Digital Rev has given Kai the creative freedom he’s going for now – not unlike Clarkson’s transition from BBC’s Top Gear to Amazon’s The Grand Tour.
