So it’s been coming up recently that our church media department has been buying “OpenDMX USB Dongles” for upwards of $80. I was mortified, especially after seeing this USB device, opening up the sheet metal project box and finding it to be a simple 2-stage USB to RS-485 protocol bridge with no programmable intelligence whatsoever.
Last April, after months of researching and stressing over whether or not I should (or could), I finally bit the bullet and spent $1300 on a nice 24Mpx Pentax K-3 DSLR. This is a super camera that I really have been enjoying and getting some high quality photos with. Most of all I like the standard ability you get with any DSLR of a fully manual photograph, something you just don’t get with a snapshot like my old Fujifilm A820. Sure the good snapshot cameras come with that little pseudo-manual exposure mode where you set one or two preferred manual settings and the rest remain automatic, but a nice DSLR will give you the ability to adjust everything about both exposure AND focus.
Seems like all I post about anymore is new videos.
And today is not an exception. I have uploaded nearly……15 new videos within the last two weeks or so. And in fact, most of them are linerider captures that I’ve made within the last year. The other few are fractal zoom captures and a quick clip of an event I volunteered with last week. Which was AWESOME!
