In the words of Jonas Mekas – Once you change the technology – from a film camera to a video camera, or from an 8-mm camera to 16 mm – you change completely the content. With 8 mm, a leaf on a tree will be made up of maybe four grains. So it’s very impressionistic, almost like Seurat. If you switch to 16 mm, the technology gives you hundreds of grains on that leaf.

From Marques Brownlee (aka MKBHD) to Justine Ezarik (aka iJustine) to Kyle Forgeard and Jesse Sebastiani(aka NELK), all the world’s biggest YouTube content creators started with making videos on a webcam. Since their stardoms are getting higher day by day, they are upgrading their contents and the gadgets they use.

As technologies are evolving, such as full-frame mirrorless cameras, 4K and 8K, their fans have a question in mind – what camera does NELk use. Nowadays, NELK uses primarily the Sony A7III for shooting their videos.

Without any further ado, let’s find out more about NELK, the gadget, and why they use this specific camera to enhance the production value.

NELK– The YouTube Channel

Nelk is a Canada-based YouTube channel that makes prank videos. Their pranks are viral among the audiences. It is one of the most popular prank channels that currently have 6.46 million subscribers. Their videos get almost 3 million views on average. 

Nelk started its journey in 2010. Kyle John Forgeard, along with Niko and Marko Martinovic, and Lucas Gasparini, are the founding members of this channel. However, Lucas left the channel in 2017 as he was uncomfortable with the way he was being portrayed in the video. He wanted to make a positive image than getting attention from these prank videos.

Though the name Nelk doesn’t have any meaning, these boys have coined some terms that became popular. “Full Send” is the most popular term that gets repeated in their videos. This term means something cool or film worthy is coming up or chilling and living life without thinking about the consequences.

Some other terms also include “Rona Season,” – refers to the group’s constant consumption of “Corona” beer. These terms have been referred to as “ Canadian-influenced slang “ by Sebastiani.
