Uniball Lenny ,

Great addition to all things Nikon!

Super Nikon experts! Very knowledgable on cameras, even non Nikon. Love hearing the banter back and forth between the hosts and they make it fun to listen to even if your not able to watch the live stream online. Highly recommended if you want to learn more cool history, insights and learn about all the new technology coming out from Nikon. Not to mention that they have great online classes that you can take to learn more about your Nikon camera. Thanks guys for creating this. I’ve looked for other podcasts in camera related subjects and frankly they stink... they do, seriously.
