Youtube channels of BLFers and family

The YouTube channels by BLFers or family:

Yes we need to start with The Old Lumens channel.
Flashlight Modding, paracord and knifes.
.
Enszo, The Millers son, right now mainly focussed on the game Roblox, with great dedication he looks for the right music and interesting topics to make videos about, makes the and posts two each week. It is great fun to watch him go, he improves his English, uses all kinds of software and just has a blast.

.
T.H.Cone Outside.
T.H.Cone: Well, I have a YT channel. It is mostly used to augment my posts here and on a couple of gear/edc forums as sometimes it is just easier to show, for example, the contents of an EDC bag than it is to write a lengthy essay. It mostly covers my outdoor hobbies, but there is an occasional rant about this or that.

.
ZozzV6: Here is my channel called Tech-test (English subtitles coming soon)

.
mhanlen:
“I have a Youtube channel that started out reviewing just flashlights and headlamps, but now I review and test knives too. My videos are shot like short films, have humor, and quite a bit of testing too. My flashlight reviews include beamshot sections, full UI demos, footage of actual night use, runtime tests and more. While I don’t always post my videos on BLF, I release 1-2 videos a week on Monday or Tuesday.”

.
TexasLumens
“DeArmond Tool…. Most of the videos there are about CNC mills and lathes…and now the Texas Lumens videos are there as well. One as late as last evening!! Wink Some of the videos have been on there for years. The videos I have previously posted at BLF are now all public as well.”

Some of you might already know my YouTube channels.
There’s one dedicated to reviews (not so much lately)

Flashlights and some video games:-)

Mattlward:
“Here is my channel, only 1 video for now. I picked up a new Xtronic soldering iron and really liked it, it is my second. I hope to start doing a few with flashlights and maybe a couple of driver build videos, for those who have not see a driver reflowed… it is kinda cool!”

papaslightsaber:
“One day I decided to try and upload some beam shots of my TN36 mkr I had just gotten and have kept working to improve on videos ever since. Dave is me, 999 is my birth year without the one and one of the 6 turned upside down. Never did think of a new name for this channel after beginning to upload videos. I have about 25 high end flashlight reviews and use decent equipment for all of my mini productions. More recently I’ve learned how to use the decent equipment, so if you look at the old videos, be warned. Videos have a fat beam shot section as well as lumen testing, runtime testing, and anything else I can think of that may matter for the flashlight in question. Looking to expand what I’m doing on my channel, but presently I’m just sticking to the “classic” flashlight review format and working to make it as nice as I can for the viewer. Here’s the clicky to my channel davemz999 on YouTube

.
robo819:
“My channel is mostly flashlight reviews that I have done , with an odd video here or there. I know one video has my motorcycle in it showing all the accent lights and other running lights I put on it. (the Red motorcycle that is my profile picture)

You should see the playlist of 38 videos at the time of this post on the page the link takes you to.

Bucket:
“Here is my channel. Heavy on machining, but I got started with flashlights.
My Channel
Some work for Dale was when my earliest videos were made if I remember correctly.”

.

everydaysurvivalgear:
“Here is my craptacular channel i am meant to put out new videos every week but its been one in two weeks lately i have been busy!
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCusCJyhVUxnEvpTKjxGlNZg

I started the channel for a few reasons but mainly as a challenge to my self because i stutter so i wanted to see if i could half compose my self to speak properly.
Other reason was to review cheap gear that doesn’t cost a million dollar per flashlight i didn’t find a market for that on YouTube when i started.
From my Youtube is how i found BLF so i am happy for that! I have made friends from my YouTube Big Smile

.

The Miller:
“This is my channel, with only the drop test video of the Q8 it is empty. Plan on doing stuff about flashlights, beekeeping, maybe some tool reviews, beer reviews, idk, we’ll see”

ChrisC
“I hate talking on videos even though I am more than happy to chat for hours on a radio.
I’m tempted to do some drop tests of some of my new lights. I just don’t want to damage my floor!”

OK lots of BLFers have a youtube channel, some post links to it here and there.
Some of our family members have a channel as well

I want to make a list in the OP with those channels.
This is for your own channels or those of your family, not the ones you are subbed to and like, you have to ask to be put in the list and I do it, preferably with a little description of the channel that can be used as clickable link.

A reason for starting this is that I know views from different places are very cool to see.
My son is started to post videos and the joy he has in seeing the sub count grow, analysing where views come from is both big fun for him and for me because it is educational as well (one can see from what country views come, very neat)

When I encounter a BLFer runned channel I subscribe by default, because a click to sub is easy done and I know it is nice to see.

I am sure my son is not the only one of our kids/grand kids to have channel and well I for one promise to sub to all channels that are going to be mentioned in this thread and like at least one video of them to assist those channels.

Here is entry one
Enszo, my son right now mainly focussed on the game Roblox, with great dedication he looks for the right music and interesting topics to make videos about, makes the and posts two each week. It is great fun to watch him go, he improves his English, uses all kinds of software and just has a blast.

please share your and your family’s channels!

I’m not particularly interested in building a YT empire or turning it into a small business, but, if you are inclined, feel free to check it out at T.H.Cone Outside.

Don't be confused, my Username has been changed from "Cone" to "T.H.Cone".  I'm still the same clown.

I have a youtube channel, but most of my videos are not viewable to the public. I occasionally post a youtube video on various forums including this one.

I started a youtube channel few weeks ago. Only one video uploaded for now. It’s in hungarian language but if I have time I want to make english subtitle for it and the upcoming videos. The channel is dedicated for flashlights and other gadgets but mostly flashlights. The first video is about basic flashlight knowledge for newbies with some good budget examples. Can I put here the channel or just after when I made subtitles?

I have a youtube channel.

Yes I know……

My videos are crap.
Most of them are not interesting.
I dont appear in the videos. I dont show my face.
I dont say anything… just music or ambient sound.
The video quality is bad.
Dont have pro nor semi pro camera: I use the phone.
I dont have nor tripod nor proper illumination.

Yes… they are crap.

But……. I put a lot of effort on it. But…. XP

It is very hard to be a youtuber specially when you dont have the TIME to make things perfect…. edit videos like a pro etc.. Also my economical situation does not allow me to purchase a camera… just the phone… (yes I have a cheap tripod travelling from china… hope that improve the new videos)

About monetization: I started the channel almost a year ago. I dont know how the people can earn money with youtube.

As I said… after almost a year… still not possible to reach the minimun amount to receive a payment. Minimun is 100$ (70eur) and I only have less than 20$. (I can take a screenshot and put here).. so it will take me about 4 years to be able to reach minimum and get the first pay…

XP

Congrats to all of you that are going well with youtube.

Just a matter of luck… sadly for me

Please SUBSCRIBE to my youtube channel (flashlights, electronic gadgets and various stuff..)

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCF3RcoQ3Ff05Cr4-Gg5qAw

I am a beginner. So please help me to make the channel "grow up"

Thanks!!

Nice post samgalax, my videos are similar but I’ve been slowly progressing over several years now.

I’ve made sod all from YouTube (maybe £100) so it’s a hobby I can take or leave, I like to think I am helping somebody out there. A career it ain’t!

I’m now using a 4K camera, and I have just started experimenting with super basic titles and transistions but otherwise, still a bit boring and niche, still no face and still very basic but it’s a long road.

My personal advice, (if you chose to listen from someone with a small channel himself!) is that videos without talk will struggle unless short and specific. Don’t start multiple channels, I won’t sub to many multi channel makers. Even the big ones I do, nutnfancy, eevblog, get rubbish interaction compared to the main. On a small channel it just takes away imo.
Do videos even if you think they won’t get anywhere, all my biggest views are on videos I didn’t expect to get many, one of mine is simply taking apart an air rifle!
