WGA member since 2006. Devastatingly handsome since always.
I'm old, so I've always been a write-on-paper kind of guy.
The hard part is reading my handwriting later.
I have three of the Neweer CN160s, and I've had similarly good experience with them.
When I was 16, I had to edit my terrible videos by using two crappy VCRs hooked up to one another (I'd fast forward or rewind to the footage I wanted and then hit record on the second VCR right as I hit play on the first one. It took a lot of time and practice to get a not very good result). And my Dad got mad when he discovered that the VCR in the living room was missing (because it was in the other room being the second VCR for me).
Editing on computers is so much more fun and fulfilling.
I bought a used Pocket off of eBay back in January when I was already in planning for a feature. It really is an amazing product. I've been really impressed with it.
I can easily imagine using it until it wears out (barring a time when 4K really is necessary, assuming that day ever comes).
When I started shooting my most recent feature (my first in a very long time, not because of G.A.S. but because of crippling anxiety), on the first day of shooting, the main actor guy asks me (probably just trying to make conversation) why I was shooting with Nikon lenses.
Because it's what I already owned was my answer, but based on his reaction, I think he was expecting something more technical.
