We are big fans of the Nikon range of cameras at Unsponsored HQ and have worked our way from the Nikon D70 through to the Nikon D500 over the past few years. All of the images taken for the site have been taken with a Nikon camera of one sort or another. Mid 2016 we added the Nikon D500 to the gear list. We wanted a fast, and good low light performer that would be able to cope with the varying conditions we often find ourselves in. As we had been shooting with Nikon DX bodies for so long we had a good range of glass to use with the D500 but needed a new (to me) type of memory card as the D500 runs both a SD and XQD card.
A great little edit from Knox Hammock – Mexico 2015.
Big rains after heavy snows caused almost every creek in the state of West Virginia to flood. Coal Run drops 600 feet in 1.2 miles starting at the town of Cunard and quickly entering the Lower New River in the Railroad Rapids.
Awesome trip to the Stikine river in September 2014, with footage from Nick Bennet and Ash Bullivant.
Two girls, one boat, one dream…..follow Priscilla Macy and Anna Herring on a journey to pursue the future of kayaking in a progressive craft. When Steve Fisher and Anton Immler left audiences craving more in 2009, it was clear it was time to pick up the torch and chase the dream that is the duo.

This is a very rarely run section of the Ulvåa that drops into the Lower Rauma in Central Norway. Huge slides and insane amounts of gradient keep people away…but this river actually turned out to be one of the most classic runs in all of Scandinavia…the upper section is more mellow, but still high high quality! Watch Svenny get hyphy on some gnar gnar! Continue reading
