I made a TikTok! I will make a few more when I have a spare moment and see what happens. I’m going to keep it simple: shot with my phone, in available light, showcasing gear I own. This first one is a tour of my camera cabinet.


Here’s my whole collection of film cameras. To see more go to my site blog.jimgrey.net.#filmisnotdead #filmphotography #filmcamera

    Hi, Jim, Great presentation! I don’t do tiktok, but for you I will.

      Hi John! Maybe this will bring a few younger people to the blog. Who knows? Worth trying.

    So hey man, I just watched my first TikTok, so I guess we are both new at this!

    After years of reading your blog, I had a version of how your voice sounds in my head. So it’s odd to hear your actual voice and it be different.

      It’s the opposite of when I worked in radio, and people would tell me in person, “You don’t look anything like I imagined based on your voice.” Speaking of which, here I am on the radio in 1994.

        First time I heard this, you have great enunciation! And what I would refer to as a “California Rock Radio” voice!

    Being in the IT industry, you know what you’re doing but please be careful with TikTok. I hope you don’t regret it. I enjoy your articles very much. Take care.

      I’m not hugely concerned. I’m also not naive. I’m aware of what I’m doing!

    Didn’t mean to offend.

      No offense taken.

    Probably not the best idea to have a Chinese spy on your device

      I know feelings run hot about TikTok.

    When I pointed out the alleged dangers of TikTok my daughter-in-law reminded me of the shenanigans involved with Facebook, Instagram, Google, etc. It’s all about monetizing everything. You are datum points of sex, religion, occupation, income, etc. etc. etc.

      Yeah, anytime a site or service goes after a mass audience, the audience is the thing they want to monetize.

    Sounds like you’re using a HEIL microphone. That voice.

    1. Jim Grey Avatar

      Just the one inside my iPhone, actually!

      But if you’re referring to the aircheck video – it was an Audio Technica I think. It was the most popular broadcast mic in the US at the time.

        HEIL microphones are popular in Ham Radio for home base stations
