    I would love work culture to shift more towards project / outcome based as opposed to time based.

    That's one of the biggest reasons why this field attracted me. I'm given a project, we mutually...

    See, I'm glad you said this and that I'm not crazy. Back in 2010-2012, I did a number of live streaming events for my old small town agency using the Tricaster Pro. Luckily nothing catastrophic...

    On another note, I wonder if it's going to a great time to buy some used gear soon?

    I was thinking more in terms of their office overhead costs + equipment, versus a small operator working out of their home with all gear paid off. I wouldn't want to be paying for office space in a...

    I am wondering if it'll be a good time for the Sole Operator / small crew to shine. Those that can deliver good quality in the corporate / Ad realm without the costs and footprint of bigger agencies....

    I've had a lot of these thoughts this last year and this year, before Covid hit. We spend a lot of time around a lot of different people, but I never feel close to any of them. It's hard to drop the...

    I wish I had the forsight to buy a barbell and some weights before things really got crazy.

    The used market for weights is insane right now, and all stores are sold out for the most part.

    For me, they are as follows:

    - I've been fairly consistent with the gym this year, but it was definitely more my B game than my A game. I'd like to step it up a notch this year.

    Yep, definitely had those.

    Though I've often had cases where they want 1080p sources even though 4K would be handy and would barely add to the size footprint, if at all. So it has gone both ways.

    This similar sort of thing has happened pretty much every single time a blind camera test is posted online.

    The S1H occupies a weird space for me. I really like the price / size of the GH5, and honestly the quality is plenty good for 99% of my needs.

    If I was spending S1H kind of money + FF lenses, I'd...

    I still struggle with this sometimes, especially since I do a lot of small crew / one man band stuff. People start breathing down your neck and getting impatient. It's easy to be pushed into just...

    Greetings from a fellow DC GH5 shooter! I've been meaning to get down to the mall and check it out, but damn this heat.

    I just brought a Small Rig sun shade for my GH5 lcd screen and that might take the cake, hah. 8$ to finally be able to see the screen outside!

    I wondered the same thing, but what about higher end commercial/corporate/ad agency stuff? I think they have a decent sized footprint there.

    I enjoy the drama, but I can't say I feel too upset. Mostly cause I'm not surprised at all. Companies are gonna do what they do. Capitalism, and all of that. Like those AV cables that have a billion...

    This is true, but I think the important caveat is that there needs to be a certain baseline level of image quality achieved before it ceases to be the most important thing.

    A lot to unpack here, but I have noticed it as well.

    A big factor is people's attention spans and the way they consume media. I remember when I first started working in the industry, a highlight...
