I just can't get excited about crowd funding any more. Too many projects I've funded either came up short, very late, or not at all. I recognize there is a risk, but the incentives usually don't outweigh the risk and wait. If a product is really good, I'll pay market price when it finally comes to market.
Lots of good information, but I wish I could have heard the questions to make sense of some of the answers. Some answers were obvious, but others were not. Anyway, I enjoyed this, so thanks for posting it.
Its their website. If you can make it here, you can make it there...
All the obvious concerns about misuse of this tech are obvious, but so are the practical uses. I'm excited about this, as it could (potentially) solve a lot of post production glitches. Like any tech, there will be times it doesn't hit the mark, but for the times that it does, it will be powerful.
John - I don't recommend adjusting lights with your eyes closed. Just kidding...
The guy's rant about the DR70 reveals user error on his part. Totally bogus review IMHO. Sure, the DR70 is not bombproof like my Sound Devices 522, but that user clearly didn't understand how to use the device, got a second unit and kept having issues with it. No where in the video does he indicate if anyone was actually monitoring the recording process, or testing his set up. If something doesn't work the first time, you debug the situation before moving forward! His demeanor suggests he's the kind of guy who spends more time ranting than reading manuals.
