INDEX BELOW:

#1: 0:52 - Your lens' SWEET SPOT probably isn't f/8
#2: 1:43 - FOCUS BREATHING might make your lens short
#3: 6:37 - The RECIPROCAL RULE isn't a rule at all
#4: 10:58 - Buying a camera without checking the lenses
#5: 12:23 - Using INFINITY FOCUS to get everything in focus
#6: 13:22 - DEPTH-OF-FIELD isn't real at all
#7: 14:25 - 4K is great even if your screen isn't
#8: 16:00 - Printing at 300 DPI doesn't mean perfect sharpness
#9: 16:45 - F/STOPs don't tell you the exposure, T-STOPS do
#10: 18:12 - FULL FRAME LENSES on CROP BODIES are less sharp
#11: 20:39 - FILTERS aren't worth it for many photographers
#12: 21:37 - Many REVIEWS aren't TRUSTWORTHY
#13: 27:04 - Cropping a sharper, short lens beats longer lenses
#14: 29:22 - Apply the CROP FACTOR to focal length & f/stop
#15: 32:38 - HIGH MEGAPIXELS doesn't mean HIGH NOISE
#16: 34:00 - Noise at base ISO is important
#17: 35:25 - ISO is not an acronym, and is "eye-so", not I-S-O
#18: 36:11 - AUTOFOCUS is more accurate than MANUAL FOCUS
#19: 38:23 - AUTOEXPOSURE is better than LIGHT METERS
#20: 41:07 - ART is more important than TECHNOLOGY
