Problem solving is a great skill set to develop, and problems are opportunities for that muscle. Example: I’ve been using the G3 microphones for my whole videography career. They are great value, but they seem to always break eventually, like it did this morning. The sets are $600 each to replace. This little button wouldn’t pop up anymore (this is very common with these mic packs). I felt like I had nothing to lose. Replacement buttons are $2, or can by pulled from other sets in a pinch. It took about 4 minutes to fix, and a bunch of money saved :). #problemsolving #good #sennheiserg3 #videography
I grew up a huge comic book fan. There were some things about the movie Venom that were done really well, and other parts that were done really bad. Unfortunately, the bad stuff was where it mattered, in the story itself. There was/is (still) a lot of potential, but this one fell a little short. Strong rental. Not that great in theaters (I fell asleep as I often do when bored) during the first part.
What are you shooting this weekend? ☺️- great tests today with the new Fuji XT3 vs A7iii. The updated firmware on the Sony 70-200 2.8 GM has fixed a major bug, and I started new sports test. The results were mind-blowing - which I’ll publish on my YouTube channel soon. #fujixt3 #xt3 #fuji #sony #sony #A7iii photo by @ashleypeitscher
Here is a free 2 hour tutorial on the Fuji XT-3. This has to do with the operation of the camera only, the rest of the information will be covered on my Fuji XT3 Crash Course, updates for that course can be followed here:
