About my audio test video: GH5 with RSVMX.

So the key finding of the video was summed up in one sentence: “It’s not so much about the quality of the microphone, as it is the quality of the receiving preamps, that affect the end result the most.” and also, the obvious: “If you really want good audio, you have to have good/expensive microphone, good/expensive separate audio recorder and of course, the skill and knowledge to use them both.” and of course, what comes to good audio, it truly is the post production, where it is being made.

From hassle to hustle

“When the times and the platforms are uncertain, you diversify.”

Diversifying used to mean that the content creator took a new genre to his repetoir. What a hassle, a lot to learn and all… but it could be that the diversifying of the future will mean something much larger: content creator has to learn to helm completely new fields, he previously would have never even considered as an option. Here in Finland one of the first suggestions of this kind in the media was that postmen could drive the taxi or mow the lawns, to make ends meet. Once again the  Kübler-Ross model came to mind: Continue reading “From hassle to hustle”
