Update: Camera Test Time!
As I wait for the last of the production gear to hit my doorstep (and I do mean "hit" -- I hid in the shrubs one day with a radar gun and clocked the UPS guy, proving that he throws harder than Nolan Ryan and runs away faster than Usain Bolt), I've been doing some camera tests. And here's what I've learned:
1) HD is not your friend if you're unshaven, haggard, or bloated from too many Cokes.
2) See #1.
I thought briefly about posting one of the tests here. Then I thought: No. No, I don't think I'll do that.
Stage 2 camera tests (with lights, offboard mics and maybe a wee bit of pancake for your host) later this week.
