Lots of people seemingly love bashing those who make a living off their approach to digital photography...

Because it’s 99% marketing and 1% content.
Tony is just as capable of mis-informing people as he is of providing useful information and he does both regularly.

Tony’s “busuness” is his personality, he markets his face, not cameras or photographs.
If you took “Tony Northrup” out of the “Tony Northrup Channel” those videos would be worth nothing, half the time he can’t even get a spec sheet right, but enough mindless “followers” view him as a celebrity and want to associate with his syle (and probably just want to emulate his lifestyle) so they consume all his content and live vicariously through the videos.

I am not a huge fan.  I somewhat follow his channel and enjoy the photo review videos.  If there is something I am interested in buying I will usually watch his and other videos for content.  Maybe you are right about some of his "followers" as far as me you could not be more wrong.  Who knows.  If you like to watch photo critiques you have Kelby's Grid, Polin which I cannot watch, and Tony.  There just aren't many folks providing lots of gear review content.

Please summarize, as I can’t bear to watch that goofball.

5Ds Mark II
$4,499
50 or 75 MP
5D Mark IV body
1080p

7D Mark III
$2,299
7D Mark II  body
24 MP, no AA
12 FPS, 1DX II focus system
4K full-width

90D
$1,499
24MP, AA
80D body
7D Mark II focus system
4K full-width

M3
$3,499

I have high interest in the 7D M3, so-so interest in the 5Ds M2 (depends upon buffer size, FPS, and DR), and M3 to look at.  would be nice to have lighter 5D M4 but only if it works very well.

I gave up on him.  Biased against Canon on so many past reviews it isn't funny.

I would tak anything he says with a truck load of salt.

I don't know why he gets so much hate.  He said right upfront his predictions would be wrong and even gave examples of how he was wrong last year.  I think people hear what they want to hear with people they dislike.  Him and Chelsea inspire me in a different way than say Ben Horn or Ted Forbes, but I enjoy their content.  I guess i am in the minority.

That's fine, and I'm glad you enjoy his content, but he should stick his strengths -- stuff that inspires or shares opinion. 

100% agree

Scott

But this forum has identified countless "Ugh, no that's not how it works at all, Tony" sort of moments where he is spreading information that is not exactly based in fact.  And I'm being kind in saying that.  Others here will not pull punches in response to some of the things he's said.

I don't see his bias against Canon in his reviews. I have watched his channel for many years, and he used to recommend Canon over Nikon and Sony most of the time. As technology changed, and the competitors offered better and better cameras and lenses, his recommendations changed.
He was recommending the 7D mark II until the Nikon D500 came out (and some new glass available on the Nikon mount). He was recommending the Canon 5DsR as being better than the D810 in most cases... the new D850 changed this. For sports he ignored everything Sony until the A9 came out.
For video he seems to recommend 4K Panasonic cameras, unless you really need a vlogging camera with reliable autofocus (Canon dual-pixel).
This video mentions superior Canon glass, and why he wants to jump to Nikon but can't.... at that point in time, certain Nikon glass was lacking... now new lenses are out now and his recommendations have changed accordingly.

So... I'll leave it at that.... we are all free to believe if someone is biased or not.... I just thought I'd leave my impression of the situation.

PS: I'm not some sort of Tony Northrup fanboy... I'm not saying every review or conclusion he has ever made is perfect. My main point is that he is not a 'Canon hater' or 'Nikon/Sony' fanboy. He'll review a product a let us know what his impressions of the product truly are (regardless of whether or not his conclusions are correct).

I don't watch hi videos because it takes a lot of energy to not comment back to him - which is what they want.

There is about a 0% chance we see a full-frame mirrorless camera called the M3 - a camera name already used...so it's great to see he did his research. BUT, I have always thought that they should make the EF-mount be included via removable adapter and, once removed, could accept EOS-M lenses in a crop mode. This would help drive development of the M-mount as well as insure that we see the new camera retain the ability to adapt vintage lenses. A big fear of mine is that if a mirrorless camera comes out that accepts EF lenses, it means the longer flange distance will not allow it to have the benefits of mounting other glass on it.
