In today's episode of Final Cut, Walter Fedczuk and Chase Wassenar take a close look at Best Picture nominee Triangle of Sadness. Together, they discuss a film that is essentially three films in one, how the film nails its dark comedic tone, and whether the film's pacing undermines its potential.
Week 2 of Doll of Fame has us frowning on the English countryside with Possum from 2018. We debate the things from our childhood that creeped us out, Nate gushes over Garth Marenghi's Dark place, and we induct Possum in as the creepiest nominee so far.

In today's episode of Final Cut, Walter Fedczuk and Chase Wassenar try to understand their harshly conflicting feelings about Tár, a film nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars with fierce fans and critics alike. Along the way, Walter tries to pinpoint where the movie lost him while Chase gets lost in Cate Blanchett's performance.
Somehow the Doll of Fame is back already with M3gan, instantly the most memorable movie of 2023 so far. We debate M3gan vs. the Child's Play remake from 2019, Mitch corrupts his niece with android TikTok dance videos, and we find entirely too much meaning in this film!

We're back in the year 2023 aka 202-M3gan with 1986 robot slasher classic Chopping Mall.

I'm Brian Friel, developer relationship fan, and I'm thrilled to announce my guest, Ryan Wyatt, the CEO of Polygon Studios. Polygon is a platform for scaling and building decentralized blockchain apps on Ethereum. Polygon Studios specifically is the business team working to help advance the Polygon ecosystem across its various products. Ryan, welcome to the show.Ryan (00:35):Dude, you've got a perfect podcast voice. Let me tell you, man.Brian (00:39):Thank you. It's a good thing no one can see my face. It's a voice for podcasting, but we'll keep it at that.Ryan (00:44):Yeah, that's fair. That's all that matters. That's all that matters. Thanks for having me.Brian (00:48):Yeah. Hey, we're really excited. By the time that this episode's live, the announcement will be out that Phantom and Polygon are joining forces and bringing the Phantom experience to the EVM ecosystem. We couldn't be more thrilled to be working with you guys.Ryan (01:01):Yeah, we're super excited. Long time coming. Glad the day has finally arrived. We can share it with everybody. You can't see it, but I'm wearing my Phantom shirt, so I'm fully celebrating the moment.Brian (01:12):I love it. And we definitely got some more of those Phantom shirts in stock. We can be giving it out to all the Polygon community.Ryan (01:19):That's right, man.Brian (01:19):Getting the merch going.Ryan (01:20):Send them my way.Brian (01:20):Hey, well, you know, you have a really interesting background. I really want to dig into that before we get started on everything that's in what we can be teaming up together across Polygon and Phantom. But for the uninitiated, can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you became to be working at Polygon?Ryan (01:36):Yeah, so my whole background was really in the creator economy all the way back to my days in college. So I played games competitively. I commentated tournaments for Major League Gaming. I ran the online tournament infrastructure for Major League Gaming, 2008, 2009. Ultimately went to Machinima, which was a really early gaming company on YouTube, and then went to YouTube to start the gaming vertical where I was the head of gaming for almost eight years at YouTube. And gaming is the second largest vertical for YouTube. It's got 350 million logged in users. It generates billions of dollars for the platform. So a really fun time that I had of 12, 13, 14 years in the creator economy. Last year in 2021, I really started getting into angel investing of Web 3.0 projects. And the way that I actually got connected into Web 3.0 projects was just really game developers that I really believed in that had a high degree of talent that were going over and they were making at the time, calling blockchain based games.(02:33):And I just became very enamored and fascinated with the concept of what can you do when you really own your digital items and how big of a business that's becoming. And so as I spent more time in that space while still at YouTube, I got really excited about what can I do to jump in full time. And I came to Polygon and I thought I really like Polygon for a couple key reasons. First and foremost, I was already sold on Ethereum where that was going to be a base layer for developers and users, and not to say that other alt ones don't have a place in the world. Ethereum had kind of already checked that box that they'd been able to gravitate a lot of users and developers. And clearly there was this conundrum that existed at Ethereum of the inability to let it scale.(03:12):And so I started focusing on protocols and companies that were really looking at this idea of how do you scale Ethereum? And landed on Polygon because I had liked their ZK tech acquisitions that they had done. They spent about a billion dollars acquiring three different ZK companies. I looked at that as like, okay, that's a real scaling L2 future for this platform.(03:35):And I thought I could come in given that I worked at a platform like YouTube, saw a lot of verticals, saw what it's like to scale a company, and knew Web 3.0 and Web 2.0 really. Well, I thought I was in a unique position to come into the company and help out. And so I joined Polygon Studios in January of this year. I lead our whole business team. So if you can think of Polygon as there's a product and engineering team that's focusing on ID and our different ZK solutions, our POS chain, avail, our super nets, a lot of work going into our product efforts across the board over there. Everything else kind of sits under my camp of everything from BD to partnerships to marketing, finance, legal, compliance, a lot of these different other business areas. And so it's been an awesome opportunity. I've really enjoyed being here and Polygon had such a tremendous year. It's been fun to be on the ride, that's for sure.Brian (04:24):Yeah, I couldn't agree more. I think Polygon is a bit of a meme that you guys have the most legendary BD team in the Web 3.0 space.Ryan (04:31):I love that meme too. I won't lie to you.Brian (04:33):Yeah, I want to get into all that and what you guys have cooking over at Polygon, but just to quickly go back a little bit on your background, you mentioned you were the head of gaming at YouTube, and that's at a time when it really wasn't popular opinion that it would be a popular thing to watch people play video games on the internet. I think you were very early to that movement and now you see that movement potentially heading to the blockchain space, you know, mentioned that your interest in Polygon really peaked from seeing game developers move over. For you, what was the aha moment for you that made you leave a job like YouTube to come into the Web 3.0 space?Ryan (05:08):Yeah, no, I love the question. I think the funny thing too is, so, taking a step back at the first part of hey, you know, you got involved before the creator economy was even a thing. And the reason I got involved was I really was such a gamer and it was fun to watch gaming highlights and clips from other cool moments in games. And what got me into it was simply, I think there's other people like me that might enjoy this, other gamers that are watching these videos and stuff. And so it started just with something as innocent and simple as that and kind of kept building off of it. Okay, how do you introduce this to more people? What barriers do you break down in order to get it into more people's hands and so forth? And so some of it you control, some of it you don't.(05:54):So a good example was really where you started to see scaling of more gaming videos being uploaded was when the Dazzle capture card came out, it was like a 50 or $60 capture card you plugged into your Xbox or PlayStation very simply captured to a hard drive. You had this raw footage output that you could just clip up and then upload, right? Then also software got better with Final Cut and Premier and all these different things. And so you started to see a lot of these things happen that other companies were contributing to and really what you don't ever sit there. And at the time I was never like, oh, some of the biggest celebrities in the world one day are going to be people that upload videos on YouTube. You don't start with such an insane point of view that I wouldn't have believed it at the time.(06:38):You didn't need to sell this huge idea and you just believe, hey, there's people that are interested in it and this is going to keep getting bigger as more people progress. I say all of that because clearly the outcome was, again, 350 million logged-in people watch gaming video on YouTube every day. Some of the biggest celebrities in the world now come from YouTube. Mr. Beast was uploading gaming videos, Dream, all these different people, right? And so I saw a bunch of similarities in Web 3.0. I love this idea of decentralization. I really did believe that, hey, there is a power dynamic that negatively impacts users. You see it in gaming, a lot of this is anchored around gaming and that as people are spending more money on digital goods, there's going to be this desire and push for more genuine ownership over it. So I started to see something where I was like, hey, this is interesting to me and I think it will be interesting to other people.(07:27):And now I also saw a lot of capital in the space, and by that I mean there is so many different people focusing on so many different problems like Phantom with the wallet, us with a protocol, Magic Eden who we just partnered with on the marketplace. You saw all these great talented people contributing their part in advancing the overall ecosystem. And so I had this perspective of, well, the creator economy took about 15, 16 years to really hit its stride in a meaningful way. I think that Web 3.0, if you think about where we're at, can really cut that timeline in half because of the type of people, the capital and resources that are in this space. And I felt that there was already a really good product market fit as far as people wanting this. And so for me, it actually was a really easy jump.(08:11):I had no issue leaving. I did awesome. I loved my job at YouTube, running gaming YouTube was so fun. Great people love Susan, our CEO. Really enjoyed who I worked with. But even saying all that, it was actually really easy to come make the jump here because I was like, oh, this is going to be so fun over the next decade, there's going to be so many different learning opportunities, things to build. There's this blank canvas of creativity and yeah, it's littered with a bunch of issues. That was no different than YouTube in these early days with people uploading porn or videos that had copyright or music. You're dealing with a bunch of abuse factors in crypto right now. We're seeing it play out, but that's okay. It's a lot of what you expect in first movers and early adopters of a new product. And so I'm really optimistic about how this stuff shakes out and what the future looks like and how even on a personal level I can contribute to shaping that in some way.Brian (09:01):Yeah, no, I agree. There's nothing quite working on the frontier attack. It's really exciting.Ryan (09:07):Frontier indeed it is. Yes. We're reminded of that every two months at this rate.Brian (09:13):Absolutely. So let's turn a little bit to Polygon specifically. And you mentioned that you just jumped in with two feet into this space. What is it about Polygon that piqued your interest and why do you think it's particularly well suited for this movement into Web 3.0 gaming?Ryan (09:29):So going back to Ethereum, I was betting on Ethereum, so I was like, I want to be associated with a protocol that's focused on scaling Ethereum. And so there's some great companies, Immutables out there and so forth. I just really liked Polygon because I love the founders, so I got to spend some time with Sandeep. I mean these guys have the heart and spirit, JD, Milo, Onarog. It's really inspirational. I kind of like an underdog story too. And if you think about even where YouTube was relative to Twitch and some of these other things in the gaming category, we had to overcome some of these battles to stay being the largest video platform. Facebook, Mixer with Microsoft, it was just fun to kind of compete. And so I just really like the heart that they had of one, they were really well intended about how much they believed in the future of decentralization and polygons' role in it.(10:20):And two, that passion, you can't recreate that stuff. And so I just very easily gravitated towards them. I also, again, well capitalized the product and engineering team, brilliant people on the ZK side. We have some of the best engineers, mathematicians, PhDs when it relates to cryptography and ZK work in the world on Polygon. So it was, it shot up. I don't think we're an underdog anymore, obviously I think we've arrived, right? We have all this great talent across the organization. We've got a really clear vision of what we think it's going to look like. And so it's just fun. It's just fun to be on a team when you work with people that are really talented, it makes you want to work harder, it makes you get excited to get up every day to work. And so we've just got one of those teams and organizations and I love it.Brian (11:13):That's awesome. So you have a great team that you guys have here at Polygon. We mentioned a little bit earlier that you guys are at the legendary BD team in the Web 3.0 space. Let's talk a little bit about some of those partnerships that you guys have landed recently. What partnerships are you particularly excited about?Ryan (11:29):Well, I mean honestly, selfishly, the Magic Eden and Phantom partnerships are pretty fun. Seeing these, a great marketplace, a great wallet go multichain is so good for the space. I think multi chain is a good thing for the space. Oftentimes too, I say it's just like we're so small and so early to be super competitive. And so I think multi chain is just a great way for all companies to look. Even games and things that are building on Polygon. So that's been really fun. We've also had a lot on the gaming side this past year. We partnered with Tilting Point, we partnered with Midnight Society, which is Dr. Disrespect's game. I mean obviously we had just a heyday on the enterprise side. We had Nike and Starbucks and Reddit and Meta. I mean, honestly, that list gets crazy. Super proud of all the team's work there.(12:19):DeFi, we had a really fun year too. I really feel good about what we've done with DeFi, Robinhood, who was a really exciting announcement. So there's just been great momentum. The teams really, it's a mix of Web 2.0 background folks from big tech with Web 3.0 native gurus, and they just really work well as far as learning from each other. It doesn't come without its hiccups, but it really has been a great collaborative effort. So we've just had a lot of fun partnerships this year. It's great to be able to announce Phantom as we come to the end too as well. I think that's going to be exciting as we go into the new year, especially with all the projects we announced and so many of them we haven't even launched yet. If you think about Starbucks and some of these other ones, we haven't even debuted them yet. So 23 is going to be a fun year. I'm really excited. I know people right now are pessimistic bears because that's the season when the highs are high, they're really high and the lows, they're really low. I'm kind of pretty excited going into 2023 with all this momentum we have. Then our ZK tech coming out, we're going to be able to do a bunch more and the DeFi space with our ZK tech as well. Vibes are high on IM my man.Brian (13:27):I love it. That's great. You mentioned a ton there that hits across a bunch of different sectors. When you talk to these teams, especially, I'm curious, the ones who maybe aren't as Web 3.0 native, are there any commonalities between all them about what they're particularly excited about or maybe some specific areas that they think are most fruitful for growth in the Web 3.0 space?Ryan (13:46):It varies so much from each one. Think about a Magic Eden or a Phantom opportunity versus a Starbucks versus Meta. I do think a lot of folks are really interested in these ideas of these decentralized, let's say peer-to-peer networks, if you will, in layman's kind of Web 2.0 terms and kind of what you can do with it. So yeah, I think from that perspective, there's a lot of intrigue and appetite in the space. I would say it's not necessarily a growth vector for them. I think it's a lot of it is, hey, this is really interesting, new tech, what can we do? How do we participate in it? How do we learn in it? How do we trial? How do we try projects in it? And then there's varying degrees. I mean if you look at Instagram, they went really in, you mint on Polygon. You can sell directly from Instagram as they build on that. That's a really just valuable tool from a creator product feature set.(14:37):And people don't really need to worry about the Polygon aspect. I mean, it's fun if you're in the space, Polygon, but at the end of the day, it's like it's a great product feature they unlocked via Polygon, Reddit and what they're doing with Starbucks Odyssey. And basically they're going to allow this rewards program to be on chain, and the NFT part will be really passive as it should be with users that are going to use it. Same with Reddit, digital collectibles. So I just think you're really hitting a stride in how people are figuring it out. And there's going to be learning and iterative work here for all of them. But yeah, I think everybody's looking for something different when they come to the table. And I feel like what we have that's pretty unique is a bunch of people that can look at all these different perspectives from institutions, to finance, to big tech, to DeFi, to being a NFT, degen trader, all these different users that matter in our communities that matter. We've got good representation of it internally.Brian (15:32):Yeah, no, that's great. And it's great to see so much enthusiasm from these orgs actually putting their money where their mouth is and learning by doing and shipping and iterating, doing all that. It's a really cool time to see. Just a couple years ago that would've been basically unheard of in the crypto space. So it's really awesome to see that changing.Ryan (15:48):It's fun that crypto's ... look, dude, I would never call myself a crypto native. I didn't read a Bitcoin white paper and it changed my life back in the day. So you are seeing this new wave of people. This is good for the space. People that come in-Brian (16:02):Totally.Ryan (16:03):That got really interested in some of the ethos of Web 3.0 that is entering the space. And so this is why I feel good about these cycles that we'll have of people coming in. And it will be an ebb and flow. We'll have these big breakthroughs. We'll have moments we've been going through the past couple months on pulling back, and that's a natural part of the course that we're on. And I think what you continue to see with each stride will be more talent, more innovation, more use cases, more people each time.Brian (16:29):Yeah, no, I agree. And each new wave of users has their own perspective. As you said, it's no longer the hardcore cyberpunks and crypto maxes coming in, and that's how the space grows. It's really exciting to see. Totally. I want to bring it back just a little bit to gaming in particular too. Given your background, everything. We talked about how excited you were moving into the Web 3.0 space from head of gaming at YouTube. Talk a little bit about how you see the state of gaming, Web 3.0 gaming today and how that might change in the coming years.Ryan (16:58):So if you think about Web 3.0, the first version of it was, they were rudimentary Ponzi-esque type games. Some games I don't think operated with malice. I think some did, right? No doubt. I think that it was a great learning experience of what can you do with all these different things? You have a token, you've got decentralization, you've got ownership. You're trying to balance game mechanics. You're just doing a lot. Making a game is really difficult. You start adding all these different elements, it becomes very complex. So I'm pretty empathetic to, let's call it generation one of Web 3.0 games, none of them, which would be anything that I'd be interested in playing. I think Axie even playing that was like, okay, at least it's like there's something here. But these are all kind of base level games. A lot of great talent though coming from that space as far as generation one Web 3.0 games as far as learning and iterating.(17:50):And that's not super uncommon if you look at some of the early gatcha games and what mobile first offered up and some of the pay games that mobile ad were pretty atrocious as well. And so mobile went through a very kind of similar era of how do you iterate on these things? How do you improve? And so Web 3.0 games now, it's like you're starting to see some really good. One, it's like if you think about really great games take years to make. So you could have been last year been like, I'm going to make a Web 3.0 game and I have this really good studio and I've got a great background. And you're not seeing that game next year. You're seeing it in like 2024. So it's going to take a while and it's not going to happen fast in gaming. You're going to keep seeing new things come out in Web 3.0 gaming that will continue to pique people's interest and be like, okay, that's cool.(18:41):Or oh, what they just did with memberships and NFT, that's cool. Or what they just did with governance, that's cool. And games are just going to keep getting better and better and better. It'll be beyond just digital marketplaces and things that you own items in and all of that. So anyway, I say all that is, I think really the reality of where games are, where you start to see mass adoption of Web 3.0 games is years away. I think I feel very confident Web 3.0 gaming will be a pretty sizable subsection of games revenue in 2026, 27, and then you'll just keep seeing it go up to the right over time as far as users revenue, how many wallets, all of this. So yeah, I'm excited. I say it in a little more tempered way because it's more of a long term bet. We've been placing a lot of them now though.(19:25):You got to place those bets now. Those trees take a long time to grow. They're really impactful when they do, but you have to plant these seeds now. So we spent a lot of time this past year investing in different gaming projects out of our ecosystem fund, partnering with really large game developers, some of which we haven't even announced yet. So yeah, we've got some cool stuff that's coming up. And I definitely think things that's going to show what gen two of Gaming and Web 3.0 looks like. Again, I think where you see a meaningful breakthrough is more likely in this gen three era in four years or so.Brian (19:59):Yeah, for sure. No, it takes a lot of cycles to make something that's kind of a generational game like that. You know, mentioned some of these early investments, planting the seeds on this. If you had a crystal ball and you looked out, do you see that most of the games people are playing three, five years out from now? Are these being made from the existing AAA game studios that are coming into Web 3.0? Is it these web one game developers who are more crypto native iterating and finding something special? Is it some sort of blended between the two of them? What do you think there?Ryan (20:29):It's probably a blend. I actually think of more of it a regional thing. I think APAC game developers, largely in APAC will be the ones Web 3.0 native or Web 2.0 will be the ones that really do really interesting things in Web 3.0 gaming that will then spew towards the West. And so I think of it more as a geo-specific thing than anything else.(20:50):I do think you will have a massive Web 3.0 game hit the equivalent of Minecraft. The thing about Web 2.0 gaming is it wouldn't be incredibly difficult to pivot when they need to. And then when they do pivot, they would be very successful. So if you could imagine a world, just take any AAA game that is a platform, a Valorant, a Call of Duty, any of these different ones that are allowing people to buy cosmetics and skins, and people are spending boatloads of money doing that, they could very easily start to think about how do you flip on something where there's governance, how do you, true ownership, scarcity of items, and even just put membership passes, stuff like that where they could play in a very low level way of playing in Web 3.0 versus there's going to be other games where people are going to go off and create all kind of different mods and versions of it and communities around it and could start from it being a PFP NFT project that evolves like a Board Apes-esque kind of path.(21:51):And so I think it's going to show itself in a lot of different ways. But generally speaking, if I had to make a bet, I would say game developers largely in Asia will set the tone for how Web 3.0 gaming will look in a couple years.Brian (22:04):That's pretty exciting. I'm very interested to see what comes out of that region. And just to bring it back, one thing that I, selfishly here at Phantom were curious about is how do you see the role of wallets evolving in this space? Wallets right now touch a lot of different aspects of Web 3.0. I think the gaming space is relatively unexplored right now. Is there anything in your mind that you're particularly excited to see about from wallets and from Phantom in particular as it relates to this?Ryan (22:30):The user journeys are tough on wallets. Wallets bear the brunt of it. When you think about bridging and making entities really accessible and displayable all in a wallet, you know, have all these on ramps, it's just very digestible. It's clean. Maybe you start to have specific vertical specific features across DeFi gaming or music as you own these things. Like wallets can then go vertically deep, I think, which would be really interesting. But right now, so many of them are just dealing with this onboarding issue. It's complicated. It really is. It's not easy to set these things up for a lot of folks. So as wallets can go deep and then be really seamlessly integrated into all these different consumer experiences, which it's like, well, on its way, that is an already accelerated timeline. You guys have done great work there. This is what I would like to see for wallets.(23:18):I want it to be, my mom can set up a wallet and use it really easily and be like, oh yeah, I mean, here's how I add money to it. Here's how I buy an item. Here's where I can look at it in my inventory. Here's how I easily send it to Brian. That's like when we get there. And I think that's everyone's North Star. And so who's going to do it the best and who's going to do it fastest, I think is what we're going to find out. But look at, you guys have hit a really great narrative in the Solana ecosystem of having this very clean, simple, easy to use wallet. And so you've got a huge leg up already on that because that's what people are looking for and what is needed first.Brian (23:56):Yeah, no, I agree. We always saw that this was one of the bottlenecks in the space of getting things easier, getting it so easy a kindergartner could use it. So we're really excited to bring that to Polygon as well.Ryan (24:06):I love working with you guys because that's good for us. We want to make it easy to come on a polygon and use all these things and have no problem immediately setting up. And as we continue to onboard big games and different enterprise companies and so forth, this is going to be really important to do. So I think it'll be awesome.Brian (24:23):Yeah, I love it. Well, Ryan, this has been an awesome discussion. One closing question we always ask all our guests, and I want to hear your take on this, is who is a builder that you admire in the Web 3.0 ecosystem?Ryan (24:35):Man, I've plugged so many of them here. This is a tough one. Gosh. I'd say right now I think I'm going to go back to Midnight Society. It's a little bit of a curve ball, but the reason why is, that team has a bunch of ex Gears of War, Call of Duty developers that are really from prestigious game development. And they've been a builder that's focusing on how they introduce Web 3.0 to the masses, which I think is obviously, I'm personally fascinated by that. And the way that they've done kind of the membership pass and so forth with NFTs, all these anti NFT like, oh, I hate NFTs, blah, blah, blah. Gaming communities really served it up in a way for them to think about it differently. So I read it too, but sticking to this, and I think as we just touched on how we see gaming start to evolve, I look at them as going to be someone that's going to crack what Reddit started to do with the idea of owning out of a PFP NFT, right?(25:37):They're going to start doing this with gaming, with general gamers that don't really care about this crypto NFT, blockchain, or decentralization bit. They're not interested in that, but they'll be interested in this concept of having genuine ownership of items and memberships and so forth. And they're going to get introduced to it in a way that is different from an NFT perspective than they ever have. And so I like them as a builder because they're Web 3.0 builders, but they're targeting the crypto naive in a way that's really interesting. But honestly, dude, it's an impossible question. There's so many bad asses working in this space right now. This is why it's fun to be in it. So yeah, you guys and some others fall into that category for sure.Brian (26:16):Yeah, no, it's a bit of a selfish question too, so that we can get our next guest lined up for the podcast. I think Midnight Society would be a great guest there.Ryan (26:24):We got to get them out, man. I think. There it is. Yeah, I think they're really, really fascinating group to talk to and dive in about gaming.Brian (26:31):Awesome. And I know there's no shortage of people we could all list on this, but that's great to hear. Well, Ryan, this has been an awesome conversation. Really appreciate your time. Super excited to see what we can do together to push Web 3.0 forward. Where can people go to learn more about Polygon?Ryan (26:45):Yeah, I mean just polygon.technology, right? Honestly, that's probably the best. It's where our blog posts are and all of our updates you can follow then all of our socials that you're interested in. If you want to go deeper on our tech stack, whether you're a developer or just interested, we have all the engineering and technical documents that you would want to look into as well as social and what we've been up to, partner announcements. So I'd head there for all things Polygon.Brian (27:10):I love it. Thank you so much, Ryan Wyatt.Ryan (27:13):Take care, man. Thanks for having me, Brian.

I just yesterday talked about Adobe Final Cut 10.4 and some of the cool 360 editing things you can do with it. I guess Adobe's getting into it pretty, pretty good. And really, with a lot of attrition that's been happening on the apple side. And I think a couple of days ago, I talked about the new MacBook Pros that have come out, that's sort of the only Pro, does it? I don't think a lot of pros are liking some of the stuff that Apple's doing. So to cut to the chase of it, they're moving over to PC stuff. And a lot of that hardware is quite excellent. A lot of those video editing rigs are very capable, outside of like, the macro, what are you gonna do with that? Now? It's, it's not, it's not state of the art at least. And so you know, as fast as the world is moving? It's, I don't know, it's apple's fault to lose it like this. So with a lot of the, with a lot of the, I guess, diminishing effects that came about in Final Cut 10.4 or Final Cut 10.0 when they switched over to I guess what was it? Like the Final Cut Studio system? Do you remember that? And like in 2010, I kind of switched up the final cut x or Final Cut 10. Now we're at 10.4. But when they did that, I think a lot of people were thinking, Oh, well, this is like they made it like iMovie. I don't know if that was true. I used it for a lot of stuff. And I don't know, it's still hard for me to use, I guess. But there's a lot of editors that yes, at that point time decided that for a lot of their professional editing needs, they really couldn't have some tool that was sort of rolling over features like that in a way that wasn't consistent for their needs. So I think at that time, a lot of editing studios tried to switch over to people that were cross-trained in Adobe Premiere. And that's been the editing software that's been in, in professional news, probably pretty directly for like the last decade for a lot of video production needs. So it's kind of interesting, and they've been keeping up with a lot of the changes, I think Adobe has been doing and maybe even a little faster than Final Cut, or some of the other companies like they had 360 editings earlier on, I think they've had, you know better motion graphics and After Effects for a longer amount of time than well, or they're just working at a higher level. And I think it's it's a higher level of proficiency with some of the stuff that they're able to get done. So I've been interested in it. But no, it's interesting to talk about to kind of separate some of the differences. I'm invested in the final cut system. So I'll probably be staying there for just a little rinky-dink YouTube cuts that they make. Who needs Final Cut for that or Adobe Premiere for that matter? But 2:58 you can see more of my work at Billy Newman photo comm you can check out some of my photo books on Amazon. And then you can look at that Bitly Newman under the author's section there and see some of the photo books on film on the desert, on surrealism, camping, and cool stuff over there. 3:21 finished up that camping trip I was doing up there. The mountain Creek was there in the Cascades a couple of days ago. What was that like Wednesday, I think it was like maybe Tuesday, Tuesday night, or Wednesday morning, I think that was the supermoon that was coming up that night. If I remember right. And that was pretty cool. It was cool to see the full moon up there. And they always talk about the Super Moon, which is kind of an I don't know, it's a little bit of a misnomer. But it's cool to see the thing to talk about happening every six months or so. It's just kind of the oscillation of a bit of the eccentricity in the orbit of the moon that makes it I think about 25,000 miles closer than its maximum, and then maybe about 25,000 miles further away. And it's distant maximum. But I think it's only like a little bit of a sliver larger than it normally would be. If you notice though, it's a thing I learned way back and I think that they show it in a scene in Apollo 13. But if you put your hand out and you put your thumb up at all times, you're able to cover the entire Full Moon, just with your thumbnail. It's pretty wild, man. You gotta kinda always like visualize the moon has been this really big thing in the sky. And a lot of the time it's, it's just as big as your thumbnail at arm's reach, which is kind of a trip, but it's kind of it was cool to see the super moon that night. It was bright. It was cool to kind of watch around and kind of look I was illuminating the forest in the trees in the mountains and stuff around me, that was kind of nice to see. The cold that night though, man, I tell you so have a 15-degree sleeping bag. And that's great. 15 degrees is fine. But envisioning degrees is more than adequate for most circumstances that I ended up being in during the summertime. When it was done, I was just not too big of concern about how cold it gets. But when it says 15 degrees, it means you're going to be comfortable down to somewhere around 35 degrees, but anywhere under 30 degrees is a pretty uncomfortable experience, I think it means you're going to stay alive until it's about 15 degrees. So if it were me again, buying something for maybe I don't know, a more heavy three-season camping experience most of the time, probably a lot of the nights out that I do. Even though I like to go at all times a year, it seems like the majority of nights I go out are during the summer months or you know during like pretty fair weather seasons. But if I were going to buy again, which I'm going to try and get like a two or three sleeping bag system going, if I was going to buy again, I'd probably get a zero degree or maybe a negative 15 degree. And I could use the warm because man, what I noticed is even if it was just a little bit down to what it would have been probably maybe 10 or 29 or something like that it was you know, a bit below freezing. Who knows how cold it was, it was only like an elevation of 2500 feet and it was a canyon. I thought it was a clear night, but I thought it would be relatively sheltered. And yeah, it was a lot of ice on my window when I woke up. And it was a cold cold night to sit through too. So So yeah, that 15-degree bag was just holding up out there. But yeah, if I was gonna go again, I think they have like a zero-degree bag. And then down below that, they had like a negative 15. And like maybe like a negative 30-degree bag, negative 30 sounds like a real warm, like down back. So I think mine's a synthetic bag. They talk about this sometimes where there are differences in the thermal insulation qualities of the material that your sleeping bag is made out of. And I think that the for it was an improvement, you know, above what and whatever cotton we were using for a while they were using wool stuff, which was pretty smart that that works well to be an insulating material. And it doesn't. Alright, that works well with moisture and stuff and all the other things we know about. Merino wool is cool. Everybody knows about that kind of stuff but we had like, you know, those terrible big cotton sleeping bags way back. Those arrived and I don't know if they were even that insulating. Then they switched over to those synthetic materials, which are probably all oil-based Does that sound right? Like petroleum-based like plastic products that were made out of synthetics, I think that's how they spin up a lot of those. This 8:05 bladder ledges synthetic types of materials that they're making these nylons out of. So I think that was how a lot of this, this synthetic stuff had been made. But really, I think what they talk about being the superior insulator is down. And that's what I'd hoped to try and find as another zero-degree or negative 15-degree sleeping bag would be a negative 15-degree down bag, which is normally a bit more expensive. You know, when you're looking around at the price points for these different sleeping bags, if you're trying to get into some colder weather camping stuff, where you're gonna find is that those name brand or you know, don't even name brand necessarily, but just a bespoke manufacturer for quality, technical outdoors product is going to be very expensive. And so that's where you get to find out, you know, three 399 for a sleeping bag 299-490-9699 I've seen like a lot of pretty expensive prices out there. I think MIMO makes some bags that are looking pretty cool that I've seen recommended a few times. I've heard of big agness they made 10s most of the time though, right? Acting company, aren't they? Yeah, the stone glacier is one that I keep hearing kind of pop up here and there now for some sense Marmot I think has bags. Alright guys, is you know, a retailer of recreational equipment they're closed right now I don't even know if you get an order from anyone like that, but they have some bags. I think that's where my synthetic bag was from, that I've been using for the last I don't know seven years or so. So that's it's been fine. But I also tested out the sleeping mat I got I got a new Thermarest sleeping mat. No big news. It's pretty exciting. guys stay tuned. It's yeah It's a larger sleeping mat than I had before but it's a coated one with I think it's kind of like ballistic nylon but it's that nylon coating over it so it's not just the rubber mat at the base of it so you can throw it on the ground or the bathrooms semi abrasive materials that it would be outside and it's working great I think it's about one inch thick or so it's about 25 inches wide at the shoulder point and it's long enough to fit my whole body which is probably the one for me so yeah I got a solid camp man I think for the last like three years I've been sleeping on one that goes flat about four hours after you start sleeping so that's kind of nice to swap out I don't know why I put up with it for so long really should do that. Sleep is like one of the best things you can get you know if you can figure out just like a couple easy things to take care of when you're out camping or out in the woods and stuff it's probably sleep I mean that's like the thing that takes in and it's frustrating because when like even this last one I'm talking about didn't sleep very well way too cold part of it you know, no shelter enough stuff that was kind of comfortable but really as it is yeah, it's like I need to I need to figure out a couple other extra things to kind of throw in there but yeah, there's just a couple things you can figure out when you're going camping like how to stay warm or how to be comfortable when you do go or like when you're asleep and it's like one of the most important and most effective things you can do to kind of improve the way that a trip goes because like yeah it can be like it can be brutal the next day if you don't get any sleep the night before which is probably the first half dozen camping trips of the year like you know this first half dozen or so overnight to the year I'm just always kind of groggy and like oh what I have to get up right now which is sort out was Wednesday morning when I woke up I popped up and I think it was probably about 5am or so that I that I got up I think it was just about first light the sun had come up yeah but there's a little bit of light up in the sky and the stars were kind of washed out by the blue sky. So I have to up and the fire was out I think from the night before like I was mentioning how those the sticks had worn out and coals and started burning down even I think by the time I was near the end of the last podcast I hopped out and the back windows were clear there wasn't any frost on it but the front window the windshield was ice over pretty hard I mean it looked like it was you know like coated or water and then froze over solid so it wasn't even just kind of like a fluffy bitter white frost or something that had built up on it through the fog. It just looks like a hard coating of just an ice sheet over the windshield. Great. I don't have an ice scraper of the whiskey I was thinking tonight it's a man who needs an ice scraper I'm taking a sip of coffee 12:58 so yeah, I don't know I grabbed a box. I think it was a piece of cardboard out of the back that I could kind of flex around a bit through that over the windshield tried to run the truck for a bit try to warm it up and took a while to but yeah scraped off some ice scraped off a hole big enough to kind of get started on the drive and then prep to take off but yeah take some photos and stuff around the campsite for a bit first in the morning nice draw in the valley like I was talking about that goes up to that ridge point that you can kind of see off in the distance and I think I could see like the fire from the smoke or the smoke from the fire of the neighboring campers over there. I don't know if I'd mentioned it well Yeah, I did in the last one. They were their kind of doing Brody's out the on the road around sunset. I think I got a little clip of it on video but yeah, it's like four or five of them. And this kind of beater. In the late 90s, four-by-four trucks spin out on dirt roads. So looks fine. I don't know. But they were I think getting the fire going and stuff in the morning too or whatever they had gone from the night before. You can see a plume of it coming up from that area they would have been camping in over by the creek bed downhill. And yeah, it was cool. I took some photos and stuff that morning, walked around kind of cleaned up the camp a little bit but the fire stuff out and jumped in the truck, had that little hole in the ice to see through, and then yeah popped on a podcast and cruised down the road. And so what I was trying to do was take off down to a couple of other spots along the creek while it was still morning and then head down ultimately to the area where the lake started to build up and so it kind of how it works is like it kind of flows down the creek and then there's a dam a point ultimately and then back right behind the dam is a reservoir where that Greek has kind of built up and I guess now is yeah body of water out there. So drove down ways and took some photographs. of the Creek and the morning light and some of the water and stuff coming through a really like that kind of affected the sort of early spring kind of fresh snow melt mountain Creek stuff that just sort of looks really crisp and forested and natural and then it came down a ways further to a bridge that kind of cuts across the span of the creek as it starts to sort of widen out into the reservoir area and it looks like you know a big stretch of calm water out on the edge of the bridge where I think two different groups that were doing some fishing in the morning and yeah seems like people are still out it was a busy area up there is still still definitely pretty fully populated set of people you know even during this lockdown period there's a bunch of people out there hanging out and fishing I think it was two different different groups to maybe they were they were all kind of connected but yeah they were they're out there with a couple lines over the bridge and they were picking up a couple things that thing so I saw a lady that was pulling up and a little a little blue kayak to the ramp on the first day and on her What is that thing you know when you you run it through the gilling you got the fish and stuff anyway she pulled up with like gardens like four or five trout or something on her on her inner guy I know that's where it leave it I guess but she pulled up with four or five trout so I figured the guys these guys were doing a little bit of trout fishing out there. Which sounds fun. It's a nice clear crisp morning and stuff like I was saying so yeah, it sounds like it'd be nice to be out there for a couple of hours doing sufficient, and yeah look like they were up to where they were getting a couple of things. Let's go to a sauna osprey that took off I think over the lake area just at that time and would kind of like pull up at certain spots over the water kind of back flap to hold in the same spot and look underwater and see if there's something I didn't see enough or I didn't see a prime opportunity and then we're going to swoop off and then take off to a different section of the lake, then do it again. So watch that about three or four times and try to take a couple of pictures of the area which are nice I like the photographs that I got that morning it's good to get a nice look at it, you know, a lot of the time that the photographs look a lot better when you just select the right time of day to be somewhere which you know is obvious but just the types of colors and the types of saturation and dynamics that you get in the look of a pretty simple you know, set of trees and water, it just comes off a lot better when it's it's just the right type of light. It's amazing to kind of see what differences it makes when it's a cloudy day or a sunny day or a morning or an evening, or midday. 17:44 It seems like the dynamics of the light change so much that you could get like a different look in the photo, which is always kind of interesting to pay attention to and sort of seeing how that goes what changes about it, and sort of how that affects the photographs that you're making. I mean even now that you know some cool intimidate, it's kind of cool to figure out how it works for you or how it works or what I'm trying to do is how to figure out how it works for my photographs and what I've tried to do which is nice. It was cool going out there and climbing around the creeks and stuff in the morning and taking a cup of photos and water and osprey and going over to the Lake area that's trying to work on similar stuff to what I've done before but kind of that mirror look of that calm water as it spreads across the lake in the morning. And on the reflection of the bright blue, kind of pre-sunlit sky. How is it you know like before the sun is actually up over the horizon, there's not a lot of intensity so it's just kind of a softer blue glow and a lot of ways and then there's still enough illumination that you can see the greens and the trees and sort of the soft calm water in the morning before it gets kind of agitated through the rest of the day? So nice kind of peaceful looks to the photos and sort of the natural stuff that I like to go kind of capture you know ultimately though, there's some nice stuff up there and I was like happy to kind of photograph some of the some of what I was looking for. But I was also frustrated in the area too. I think there was a there's little more choked-off than what I normally like. Like there wasn't as many opportunities as I had hoped for I had to try and utilize the ones that I found there weren't as many opportunities as I had hoped for kind of an opened up wide scene that you could set up a landscape photo and there weren't a lot of elements to work with it was just sort of like some rolling hills off to a Green Hill. So sometimes I'm trying to find some stuff that's a little bit more dynamic and it looks more than that. But it was fun though, even as it is anyway. Though I'm trying to I think maybe like I was mentioning last when I got stuck and turned around but the snow and I didn't want to deal with any of that right now. But in the next weeks If I want to get up to Mount Jefferson or Mount Washington or a couple of these other wilderness areas that have a few kinds of visual landmarks that would be worth taking an observation of.

I liked a lot of the Nikon stuff, but I also noticed I liked the Nikon stuff, I'll leave it at that. I just noticed that sometimes some of the accessory equipment outside of the body that you might buy a bit of the lens are expensive, or they're a little more expensive than maybe some of the commensurate lenses that might be available over in canon. I remember back in college someone was mentioning to me that they were going to switch from Nikon over to canon because the canon was a bigger company. I don't know if this is a reason or not. It was interesting logic though, to kind of think through at the time but that canon was a larger company selling more lenses making more cameras making more equipment. And so they had more resources, more staff, more designers working on cameras, building cameras, and doing research and development to kind of bring that forward. And I think even maybe now that's still perhaps true if you look at some of the technologies in Nikon versus canon like we were just kind of to take a base idea of it though I love Nikon stuff a lot if you were to take like the D five I think that's a 20-megapixel sensor. Whereas if you were to look at the newer Nikon or Canon five D Mark four that's I think like 3136 I don't know if it's out there in the third maybe I think it's a 30-megapixel camera. And I think perhaps the five D Mark three is a 23-megapixel camera. So it was interesting just kind of noticing a couple of those things now I understand that there are benefits to the lower megapixel rating for some of the low light performance that you get a high ISS and I think that's maybe sometimes where Nikon performs well but then there's also Sony who's producing 42-megapixel cameras and they're doing incredible things in low light but also even better stuff with a seven s which I think is the version of the camera that's specifically around some of the higher end video features. And I think it's a 12-megapixel camera that does incredible stuff and low light like almost like you know 100,000 so you can get amazing low light images and low light video. So it's interesting how that kind of sensor technology works. But all that being said it's just interesting that for a long time even way back in history like to the beginning of the digital SLR I think canon was way ahead and what they are producing as far as their sensors go and what they're able to produce like megapixels or in fidelity have an image I think they had a what was the first one I think Nikon did not have a full-frame digital SLR and tell the Nikon d3 came out which was a fantastic camera and I had that one also as a used camera that about later loved the d3 but it was interesting that they yeah like they didn't have a full-frame DSLR camera option until 2007 I think when that came out, whereas, on the Canon side, I think that the EOS one D The one DS is that right? I think it was the DS was the first full frame camera produced by Canon and that was way back and I think that was still like around eight megapixels or maybe 10 megapixels for the mark two and then they had some technology that was just far more advanced for the time 2000 to 2003 2004 than what canon had gone or is before when Nikon it you know what I mean right? So anyway that fast forwards to me in the fall of 2018 I'm looking around for another camera purchased because I was going to be moving I was going to be taking a job where I was I was going to be working every day doing family portrait photography and a lot of like wedding photography stuff to where I needed it. And on the memory card system that would be in the camera was like on the Sony side as I had mentioned before. There were some limitations to it and one of the other limitations was that it only accepted SD cards which right now I'm kind of learning are fine you know you can use an SD card for just about anything but I also liked the opportunity or the option to have a compact flash card or maybe it's a USM USM USD. That's $1 I'm not sure but with the compact flash card system that goes in, I always felt that was like a little bit more professional when you put that in. And I just wanted more memory options so with I think the five D Mark three that I decided to pick up use that had the Compact Flash slot and also had the SD card slot and you could record to NADP video and you could take photographs you could do like high frame rate burst series for photographs and it's just seemed like it was a great workhorse camera that the five D series and I think that's what people have been talking about. Even since like the five D Mark two when they announced the HD video recording features on DSLRs so I think that when even before that, you know it was just it was one of the top-use cameras for wedding photographers and stuff so for me, I was trying to find something that would be like a good workhorse camera where I could always kind of count on it and the battery system and the memory card and the lens arrangement that would be available to me that I could really just be hammering away on frames and then be bringing those in editing them and then kind of delivering them to clients in a pretty fast manner. So I thought that would be something that would help me out and I think I was right I think was a good choice though there are fantastic options like the ACE seven Mark three, or the seven three and then a seven are three. I think both of those have kind of solved a lot of those issues that I've been talking about where they've adjusted the battery system and they've adjusted the just some of the blackout problems that I was talking about before but I was happy to switch over to the Canon side of it. I think also the reason I was talking about two words Yeah, no blackout, and I liked being able to use the through-the-lens viewfinder of the SLR as opposed to the digital SLR or just looking at it on the screen. So I don't know if all those reasons were kind of why I wanted to get back to the DSLR system instead of the interchangeable lens camera system. But it was great so so back I think in September I was looking around a lot I sold the seminar off and then I was trying to hunt around for options for me to get a well-priced canon five D Mark three and then I also bought one from Marina so she had a five D Mark three body and then we could kind of share lenses for two so I wanted to get up and running. And I wanted to talk about like some of the lens stuff that I was interested in too It's interesting kind of switching over to Ken and now just kind of seeing you know what's available and what's available in the US market which for me and you know someone that doesn't want to spend a ton of stuff, getting a pretty high-level professional level set of photography equipment, it's interesting to kind of comb around through the US market and figure out good pieces to use. I think almost every camera system I've ever had it's been something that I've made a purchase of off of the US marketplace in some manner you know, I haven't bought a new film camera that's for sure. And so it was interesting kind of trying to figure that out a little bit and I've always had really good luck with that I hear some bad stories out there but it seems like a lot of photographers take pretty good care of their camera equipment in a way that at least seems quite usable for me so what I ended up with it at some point and I save a ton of money doing it too and I don't have to deal with the heavy depreciation because like by the time I I end up wanting to sell it hasn't moved that much in the marketplace. A lot of the time you know it only ends up being like a few $100 to purchase that camera because when you sell it again you get a lot of that money back and as opposed to well I'll get into that story a second but like when I purchased it that camera was quite new. And it had appreciated a lot and value from the new price the new sticker price from the in the store in the camera store price to what it was when I bought it used so so it was a fantastic deal to kind of pick it up and find like a good one out there. So so yeah back in. Was it back in September I was hunting around in Oregon trying to find a good five D Mark three body so I was trying to debate a little bit I was looking around on eBay for five D Mark threes that would be available. And I was looking around on ke H and those are two locations that I kind of made purchases from before when I was making a purchase online. I like eBay and I sold a bunch of stuff on eBay. I sold myself a seminar on eBay. I sold my d3 when I had made a purchase the d3 I think from K h and I sold that d3 on eBay and I made my money back it was great it worked pretty well. But when I was looking around I didn't find the price point that I wanted for the five D Mark three line I think those are all running around 18 or 1900 bucks for the five D Mark three bodies that are being sold but I'm sure I don't I seem to like the market was a little lower than that at the time and then when I looked on kth it was sort of the same story where once we were in bargain condition you know where they'd been pretty beaten up or probably had been you know, someone's wedding photography camera where it really hammered out 100,000 or 200,000 frames already had a few seasons of weddings over the last couple of years and the person was trying to offload that gear and then you know an upgrade to their five-year mark for their one dx or something like that. So I kind of wanted to stay away from those in a way I'm sure they would have been functioning cameras and the way that they had been reported but there's really no way to like get an observation of the camera and its function in your hand while you have it to see that it's really like as clean or as in good condition as you'd want it to be for something that you're going to spend 18 $100 for when I was buying used cameras it was sub $1,000 purchases so it's like well you know, it's got a couple of scuffs on it or something like that, but they were always quite nice in their physical condition. So what I ended up deciding to do was instead of purchasing on eBay or kth what I decided to do was try and check out the local marketplaces so I went on Craigslist to look at the classified listings that were there in you know, photo and video equipment for sale listing in my area. And I kind of scoured across Oregon to find you know a couple of good pieces so I was trying to look in the Portland area. I was looking over in the bend area I was looking in the Eugene area and I was also looking up into like the Seattle and Tacoma area as well because I thought well you know if I need to then I'll drive up little ways that I might save hundreds of dollars trying to purchase a nice camera system so I thought that might be a good idea. And then in addition to Craigslist, I was also getting into the Facebook marketplace where I was selling a ton of mag my stuff from a house when I was trying to set up this move over here to Maui. So I was looking around at that I was saying well maybe I can check out and see if there's camera equipment that is also listed there too. And that worked out well I was pretty impressed with it. So for the camera bodies, I found two canon five mark three bodies one of them I found over I'm banned for $1,000 flat which is an incredible deal I think I think I got that brand on that one. It had been used I think for just like a single project that someone had I think they did to have a business or they're paid to do it so they made a purchase of a five-day Mark three and then they shot like a series of web instruction like instructional videos for YouTube for a company that had purchased it and then they hadn't used that equipment in a while since then. So they were going to sell that camera off and get some of their money back. So I got the camera for $1,000 even which was fantastic it barely even had like rub marks on it on the base of it you know like when you look at the camera body physically, the rubber was in fantastic shape. And the base plate like where the tripod would go I think was the only area where there's a little bit of a scuff but it was fantastic. It was cool that it worked out so well for me so I made a purchase of that camera for 1000. Then I was looking around and I found another one up in the Portland area that a real estate agent had bought to take photographs of their property and then I think they'd found out that they didn't want a five-day Mark three but they wanted a Sony camera and so they made a purchase of a Sony camera just a few months after that. And then to make up the cost of that purchase they wanted to sell off the Canon five D Mark three that they had and so I saw I got the box too which is interesting. I got the box for the five D Mark three and had the receipt from the camera store that they bought it for it was you know 20 $600 when they bought it maybe 12 months ago or 11 months ago and I looked at the shutter count of it. There are maybe 1900 pictures that have been taken on the camera body when I purchased it it was almost like a brand-new camera. I think it was put 1000 frames on a day at the job that I had so 34:22 yeah, it was I've already broken it in quite a bit more than it had been when I purchased it so it was cool getting such a new camera for such a low price. So saving $1,000 trying to put it put the these this package of equipment together was excellent and I was really happy to do that. And that was one thing I noticed about the Canon US market is there's just and this is sort of back to that thing. It's a bigger company and they're selling more cameras out there. So it was cool that there's just so much used gear out in the market where as opposed to you know if I was looking for a D 100 on the Nikon side or a D four or something like that, it would be pretty hard to find those bodies I guess in that condition or you know in that way and then for that price it seemed like and same goes for like a Canon one dx that I was trying to find that on the US market those were held by professionals or sports photographers and those bodies were really and still very expensive when I was looking around for them but it seemed like there were so many people that were interested in doing wedding photography or doing photography as a hobby that they would kind of lean into the higher price range and pick up a five D Mark three and then find out why maybe I don't want it or maybe I want to switch over to a five D Mark for now. And so they were ditching those and offloading this for way lower prices so it was excellent time to kind of come in pick those cameras up and and kind of start getting set up but the other thing I noticed is that Okay, so now we have the five D bodies now we're going to need lenses to work on these so what I was looking for was the the USM what was it the the 24 to 70 f two eight lenses that were for like the professional full frame cameras and I was fortunate to find those again on the Facebook marketplace I think I found one in the Eugene area and I got a USM 124 to 70 which was a great price and then I also found a USM to 24 to 70 that had been used more I definitely could tell that it had been used more this even though it was a newer version lens that it definitely had I think some more where I and that's that's probably the lens that though still works great still has great optical clarity but it's probably the one that seems the most tired when I'm using it sometimes so it's interesting sometimes but but I'm sure I probably put a ton of work on it to just kind of racking it back and forth trying to get all these different photographs I was trying to shoot so i don't know i lenses don't last forever and they're mechanical pieces but but these are really well built you know these these professional hourglass systems are really sturdy and well built and I was really impressed with how they were working so I had a great time using it and I didn't really seem to run into any problems while I was trying to produce produce photographs with it but I found yeah I found one of them one of the lenses in the Eugene area and then I found another one up in Portland and so I drove up to pick that lens up and then add you know add to five D Mark threes and 224 to 70 f two eight lenses to throw on there to do a bunch of the family portrait stuff and a bunch of the you know kind of lifestyle images that I was trying to do so it was a great starting setup for me to kind of get and then move out from and so I had been working with that for a couple months and I've been trying to kind of expand from that since then. So the stuff that I'm looking for now well so I started looking into like some things for like real estate photography and one of the things that are always required for that stuff is is like a really wide angle lens. So when I was looking around with the company that I was working with they were looking for images between 17 millimeters full frame and 20 millimeters on a full-frame camera and so I went ahead and I purchased the 17 to 40-millimeter f four lenses it was quite inexpensive I mean you know, again coming from like the Nikon so what I thought like wow, that's gonna be more than $1,000 to pick up a lens for it was a low price I think was about $520 to buy a new 17 to 40 millimeter 38:37 the lens that was like that Yeah, the f4 that I was talking about. So I picked that one up to do some of the real estate photography and that amortize pretty quickly to get into it to use that for real estate jobs. It kind of paid for itself just in a couple of jobs alone without the cameras themselves and the 24 to 70 sort of paid for themselves by hammering out a bunch of family portrait sessions with them. So both of those things kind of worked out pretty well but in addition to that what I'm looking for is like the 50-millimeter f one four lenses I was looking at that too and I'm looking at those new because and this is what I'm saying is it's just it seems like Canon lens prices are sort of dropping down a bit maybe there are newer lenses and I know there's you know the there are way higher end lenses but the 50-millimeter f one for kind of lower end lens perhaps is I think 299 which is super cheap I guess that's what I paid for 35-millimeter dx lens on my old camera system, you know on the Nikon stuff so so I was I think what was it like that? The 28-millimeter f two lenses I had for my Sony camera were like 450 bucks when I bought it used right? So it was awesome to find that 50-millimeter f one four for 299. And then in addition to that, for other portrait stuff, if I wanted to do it, I could pick up an eight 85 millimeter f one eight for 299 also, and I was like, wow, these are way more reasonable price ranges than what I thought so it really for not that much, you could probably put together a full range of prime lenses that I would want to use. And I could put together a full range of zoom lenses that I wanted to use that were all kind of higher-end glass, that that would be great for, you know, professional staff, or the lifestyle stuff or the, you know, whatever kind of photography stuff I wanted to expand into. And then on top of that, I was looking at the 40:34 dough, I would love an F to eight, I was looking at the zoom lenses, and one thing I've kind of learned from this job that I was working with is when you're working with compression, and like when you're working like with zoom, and you're using the compression of the lens pass, you know, 70 millimeters like into the 80 millimeters or 100 millimeters or out to 200 f two A is soft. And a lot of times especially if you're taking pictures of a couple of people together and you're not trying to just rack right into to focus in on an eye and even when you're taking a picture a portrait of someone, you have to kind of crank it up to f4 f5 to get a depth of field that's thick enough to get their, their nose, their eyes in their ear in focus in the way that you'd need to. And it seems like well, you know, like, love the super shallow depth of field, but it seems like you want to get the person in focus, so you got to get a few parts of them and focus. Remember taking self-portraits, you know, like I hold the camera out in front of me with the Canon 50 millimeter, one eight, and try and take a picture of Marina and me somewhere and I remember Marina would be just on the plane in front of me, you know because we're trying to stand right next to each other. And maybe I would be in focus. But then Marina, just one or two inches in front of my nose would be completely out of focus, it would look just like a super blurry kind of washed area because the depth of field was so shallow. That's where I was trying to, you know, kind of finally learning like, Oh, yeah, okay, so maybe f1 eight isn't absolutely what you have to have for every photograph that you take or f1 for whatever it might be. So I was kind of finding that part out where Okay, well I'm gonna have to rack this out to like f5 or f8. Anyway, to get a sharp photograph of the thing that I'm trying to get an image of. So I have kind of rounded out that I'm going to be fine for a lot of the landscape photography that I'm interested in doing, I'm going to be fine kind of jumping into lenses that are around that f4 line. So I was looking at the USM 70 to 200 f4 lens that they have. And so I think it's, I think that the two eight, the f2 eight lenses that's 70 to 200 is like around 1500 bucks. But then the f4 is about 600 bucks, I think it's like 599 to pick up a 70 to 200 USM lens. Now it doesn't have the image stabilization on Nikon, they call it vibration reduction is that right? But it doesn't have image stabilization. And I think it is probably lacking some other additional features because I know there are two versions after that, that escalate in price quite a bit. But if you're looking for that older one, it's still available on Amazon for 599, which is a great price. If you want to get a 70 to 200 I think that was cool. And there are a lot of things you could do with it. Again, like I was saying with the compression, if you're going out to 225 millimeters and you're shooting it at four, that's going to give you a nice bokeh in the background. And you're going to get the person in focus if you need to if you're shooting a portrait and if you're shooting some kind of landscape or wildlife scene, you're going to be able to do a lot with that too. You're just gonna have a lot of flexibility in what you're able to do I love fast lenses, I'd like to always push for you to wait or have 1.2 or something like that. But I'm loving the fact that there's an opportunity for me to get a whole range of focal lengths as I'm trying to transition over into new gear for a much much lower price than what I was expecting so I think that's pretty cool I've been pretty happy with this transition over into canon equipment so far. And it's been interesting you know the thing that I'm I'm 44:19 thanks a lot for checking out this episode of The Billy Newman photo 44:22 podcast.

Today I wanted to talk to you guys about an Instagram TV post that I made. also kind of asking you guys what you think about Instagram TV. What's it like for you to have put anything up? Is it useful to shoot a vertical video and then edited and posted on HGTV? I see some content. Whilst I don't know producers' providers, what do you call them now, creators? I don't know, I see some YouTube stars trying to put up some things cut down to a vertical video frame and throw it up onto Instagram TV now, which is sort of a separate app. I've downloaded it, I'm trying to check it out. It's kind of interesting. But I guess one of the things that I threw out there, I guess what I'm gonna run down on a few of these little podcast clips is I put together a handful of clips from a 360 video trip that we shot down at sister's rock, Oregon, like when we showed up there, it was cool. But Gosh, we lucked out. I probably talked about it a few times at this point. But we lucked out with a beautiful sunset. And so we waited like right at about the time that the sun was right at that golden hour spot it was coming down to its horizon line to set. Right about then we walked down toward the beach, sort of on this long road that sort of meanders through like this big mountain over to your left-hand side. And then this big, sweeping coast that that kind of curves in and you seem like the shortcut to Washington, but was cool to get to see that in 360 when we shot it and edited it and rendered it out later. But it's also really cool. what I was doing, I guess kind of in at that same time was shooting some clips of what it's like to sort of go through a shoot 360 video. So I threw a few of those together of us doing some stuff on the beach and walking around and getting some shots. And I put that up as one of the clips for the Instagram TV video model. And it was cool, it's kind of been put up, but you can check that up. over on Instagram TV, I have a few more of them coming up too. It'd be cool to put it together. But the main question is, does that make sense at all, you know, like this vertical video being this unnecessary? Do you guys need anything like vertical video, I'm testing it out a little bit because I like to put my hat in and try and a few of the newer pieces of media out. But I'm also kind of skeptical about some of the need for it. I don't know, I guess this is the other thing I've learned about Instagram too, is that it turns out what I like or what I think doesn't end up being that important. Or is that necessary, it seems that so many people have their phones that are holding them in a vertical position and anybody under 20 or 25 or something at this point is going to understand quite clearly what to do with a vertical video and how to interact with that. And it seems like there's so much media and content being consumed being downloaded, that somebody who communicates effectively in a vertical format is going to be able to create an audience create or action, you know, generate something for themselves. So it's kind of interesting, that won't be me, of course, obviously, but it's kind of interesting to see, you know, like how these different things sort of pop up. And then how over time it's going to end up in something important even if it seems like sort of a silly thing people's old as asked wouldn't use 3:29 you can see more of my work at Billy Newman photo calm, you can check out some of my photo books on Amazon. I think you look at that Bitly Newman under the author's section there and see some of the photo books on film on the desert, on surrealism on camping, you cool stuff over there. 3:52 During this time, this tactic called feather sticks, do you guys heard of that it's like a bushcrafting term I hate that word I prefer camping or hunting or something like that. But in the world of bushcrafting which I'm sure you can YouTube, there's this and it's an idea, and a lot of that stuff is great to have generated the skills that you need to run to manage yourself in the outdoors and the thing kind of the thinking behind it is the more that you know about how to work with your environment the less gear you need to carry with you and really the more apt you are to make proper choices in a short period that will help you out so that's helpful. So you're just kinda like having fire building skills or knowing what to do and how to set up camp or how to run a tarp or how to get water all that sort of stuff. Anyway, in this case, you take some of these sticks that I'm talking about some of these drier ones, you take your knife, your sturdy bushcraft knife, but people still like to talk about anything you take around 24 inches of that stick and kind of break them down at 24 inches or so. And then we're supposed to do is take that knife and sort of what would it be like a kind of like peeling a potato or something or like you know if you got to like kind of peel it Carrot, what do you want to do is kind of start at the top. And then you want to peel into it, you kind of cut in with a knife just a little bit and then run a slice of that down to the end of the bar, but you don't, you don't slice off that flake of wood that you've been pulling up, you try and make it pretty thin, too. It's called feather sticks for a reason, right? See, if you try and kind of make it like a thin strip of wood that's kind of pulled up from it. And the wood will just kind of naturally curl up on itself. As you chop on it, it takes a lot of getting used to you kind of have to get the hang of trying to get those feather pieces down, you have to hold it onto the stick itself. So you cut down to the last like two inches or so of the wood and then you leave it and so what happens is I used to cut, you kind of rotate the wood and you cut down to rotate the wood and cut down. And so you get after doing that for a while. It's just a bunch of these real thin flakes of wood that are all gathered up at the top end of this stick and then you have a nice dry piece of kindling, that sort of works down next to it. And so what you do is people a lot of bushcrafting and camping stuff is just doing a lot of preparation and a lot of work that sort of seems like a man should roll lighter or you know, should read some newspapers or something that would have done more. But if you're in bushcraft and yeah it's one of those things you can do if you have nothing, nothing around. But yeah, you make these feather sticks and then the good fire starting material if you get the right wood that's trying if you can kind of run down and get these plumes of these kind of saw or Masada is but these little like plumes of wood flakes and they'll burn up real quick when you get a fire going on them. But what I did for this one, oh the other fire tip. What was the one I heard? Cotton balls and Vaseline. here that's like the fire starter ticket because it's pretty, pretty neutral. You can use the Vaseline for a couple of different things and the cotton balls too but that petroleum jelly that makes up the Vaseline will rock fire and the cotton too. So yeah, you just need to take a cotton swab from the bathroom the Vaseline you put that in like a Ziploc bag and then you pack that into one of the pockets of your backpack and you can get a fire going with a lot of stuff or you can get the base of a fire gun with a lot of stuff like that would work great even with the gun was like a flint Flint rod. 7:21 I can't remember what the other word is for it but those Flint rods that you strike and then you run a spray of sparks on to instead you can do that I always bring a lighter a couple of lighters with me I got one in my pocket right now but those are really easy Firestarter tools where you can like that you got a good flame going for a sustained amount of time running out the petroleum jelly and the cotton and then you can stack smaller twigs and sticks and stuff on it and then run bigger branches on that quickly and that that helps out a lot in my case I didn't know that I had a couple of couple napkins from lunch and I had some Fern that I spotted over here and it had died out so there's these dried out fronds of Fern leaves over I don't know about 50 feet over here under the side of the road. So I went over there with my knife and I cut down a couple handfuls of those I came back over to the fire I laid out a better the smaller sticks at the base and then I stacked in a bunch of the dried Fern is a bad there and then I put some of the strips of paper towel that I had balled up in a section there and then I stacked up kind of a little fork like a little lean to four of some of the smaller sticks and then had some of the bigger sticks are ready to go but lit up the the what was it the paper towel and a couple in like two spots is what I tried to lift paper towel in two spots with the lighter and then real quickly I just kind of held over the ferns was dried ferns and they lit up real fast here so that was a great fire started piece and that cuts you know cuts a big flame really quickly and then I put that over it and then that kind of got the lower ferns sort of burnin in some of the sticks going and then I threw on those smaller twigs over and then that caught and through the bigger sticks on there. So dropped a couple of logs on there. Yeah I was kind of scavenging them from some of the other fairings that I was passing along the way even though I'd gone out what was it a couple I don't know it's probably a month or so ago now and I collected a good bit of firewood up in some of the the areas outside of where I was working at and yeah I'd kind of drive around and if I see like some some downed dried out wood on the road and throw it in the back of the truck and then I brought it home and I cut it up and then I stacked it up and so some of its guys seasoning out now we've got a little fire pit at home that we're kind of we're kind of using it with but I was gonna bring some of that some of the twigs and some of the kindling that I had and then I forgot about it and didn't bring any firewood with me which is fine to know you know it's cool really almost anytime I've gone out camping in the past I've never brought firewood with me even probably at times I should have or you know places that you're not supposed to scavenge firewood or that it's been so used that there's just no firewood in any capacity left to scavenge batch. Where was that Isn't Wyoming yeah I was in Wyoming we were traveling we were camped out at a spot and cabbages go through there we were in September so I'm sure that you know he has been in constant use from you know April until the end right you know it's just been constant use and it's been like that for the last 100 years or how long you know we're not the first but in that in that area out there there just been nothing available to burn so all the all those flammable resources has been collected by other other kindling hunters in the past and it's kind of interesting to see how that goes so we kind of had to be resourceful and we had to kind of figure out how to gather enough stuff but we did pretty well you know, like we result in kind of go to like pine needles and pine cones sometimes those those were pretty well are often pretty dry and will burn well enough they're not going to be a sustaining fire they're not going to really like get up embers go into the degree that you can really cook on an effective way but but you can't cook on it I mean, you can get some stuff going and in some other ways you can get you know enough of a fire gun that you can you can get a lot going so that's that's normally what I would have is you know, you have like one or two good logs that can kind of keep things kicking for the evening but to get that going you need to you need to have some smaller stuff and normally that day you're just trying to find where you show up because you can't be here there's going to be stakes around so you try and gather that stuff up but man, if it's a busy area, that stuff will happen scavenged shoot, but that's not my problem now so I'm I'm loaded up on some firewood and I gotta get better coals go and that I can get this 11:35 stuff set Rockin with 11:43 you can check out more information that Billy Newman's photo comm you can go to Billy Newman's photo comm Ford slash support. If you want to help me out and participate in the value-for-value model that we're running this podcast with.

So I can kind of move things around. That seems to be more useful for me than the big cloud. I'm looking at eight terabytes and 10-terabyte Seagate hard drives right now a couple of other brands I was looking at like the G drives and those cooler aluminum metal cases, I was looking at other Lacie drives about Lacy stuff in the past. And but I'm looking for a bigger desktop drive, I have a couple of smaller, portable drives that are great with a laptop when you're moving around. And that's worked functionally for the last couple of years. But I am looking for something that probably what I want is a NASS or some network-attached storage device. I've been interested in those for a long time, they're kind of expensive to get into. It's almost like buying a desktop computer when you load it up with big hard drives, and you have to buy an enclosure and it's a big project, just all as that as it is. So really picking up eight terabytes or 10 terabytes for 200 bucks seems, like it would solve my problem for the time being. But that's what I thought five years ago when I bought a four-terabyte hard drive. And I thought that would solve my problems. And now I have four filled up. Four terabyte hard drives, one, two, those are the four pounds the two. Those are both. So there are four, that's for sure. So yeah, I need to get a bigger, bigger amount of space to kind of do the data management stuff that I have in the background, the tough thing is, is like so you have four terabytes, wow. And so it's like a lot way more than I would have ever thought in the past. But I mean think about 20 years from now. But in the data we're going to be talking about, we're talking about AR files or photogrammetry projects or something, it's going to be insane data. Four terabytes, I got to back that up somewhere, right, so I need a second four terabyte hard drive to have all that duplicated over to so now I have two full four terabyte hard drives, which is kind of the problem that I seem to run into. I'm going to get this eight terabytes hard drive and then I'm gonna need a second one to back it up to so the idea is that it's just gonna be this one big tank drive, that's gonna be the archive area for all the stuff to go and get backed up to. And then we're gonna have the smaller you know, four terabyte hard drives that are maybe a little faster. I've been doing black magic speed tests on them though, and they are not that fast, like 100 megabits a second. I'll get to that in a second. But yeah, try to get the four terabytes I have right now to be more active, like for video projects or for the photo libraries or something like that, maybe I can break it out and have that run a little bit more stable on some of those but the interesting thing the thing I was gonna mention is that these drives are USB three, right? USB three, that's fast. Hey, maybe soon they're gonna be Thunderbolt three or the USB 3.1 USBC connector. That'll be great. That'll be what when is it? 10 or 20 gigabytes a second incredible speeds Wow, that'll be awesome, or USB three what that's five gigabits a second gigabytes a second slippin. Now, slow hard drives are the weakest link in the chain. So you're sort of throttled back to the speed that the drive can write to. So these 7200 RPM drives the spinning disk drives, which used to be kind of state-of-the-art video drives 10 years ago. And that is kind of considered slow, they are slow their data write speeds are somewhere around 100 megabytes a second, which is below half of what was advertised for that even USB two speeds of 250 megabits a second, megabytes a second. Okay, so we're running 100 megabytes a second on a USB three, four terabyte hard drive, it's good. It's cool. It's I think better than the USB two connection. Agnew does. So it's faster than a USB two cable, happy to have USB three. But Wow, that is not the same kind of performance at all. So that's really where you're going to see the performance increase when you go to an SSD hard drive. So let's try to consider that about any like future stuff I was thinking about, like, getting like a pro desktop computer and trying to build out some stuff like I was saying network, storage device or other stuff that I could use when thinking about Okay, so for performance with like a higher end computer, you're going to get slower speeds with that. But you would get really fast speeds if you had an SSD or if you had the right type of enclosure that was built to work with it quickly. So that's kind of been crossing my mind for future-proofing. What I'm up to for the 2020s as we're getting into it. I think though, round, most logically, the answer probably got the reasonably priced eight-terabyte drive now and wait some years into the future that pick up 17:20 some multi-terabyte solid-state drive of the future that can transmit things at faster speeds. I'm sure we'll get there sooner than later. Well, thanks a lot for listening to my kind of ramble about computers that I have installed on my laptop. That's pretty interesting, right? But all of that is in service of the greater goal of trying to get some photo stuff put together, which has been going pretty well I've been going through a bunch of images in the catalog. And I'm trying to get together I think I've been trying to talk about it in so many ways a few times. But I'm trying to get together a couple of sets of portfolios sort of structured into like, let's say, easily landscape, commercial shoots, portrait shoots, wedding shoots, something like that. And so there's kind of a collection of each second have so if people are to look at those photos, so see, oh yeah, there's the there's this and then there's that. So that's kind of the plan which is close to coming together pretty fun. And other than that I'm getting into video stuff I've been editing a lot more in Final Cut, I've got the big monitor up, I've got the weakened toppled out I'm trying to go through and kind of get used to using the pen, it's probably easier to do that in Photoshop or Illustrator or something like that to get used to the pen. But if I don't, that's a cool tool. Also, you get to kind of you know, flow the pen back and forth. Using a tablet, it's a faster way of working than with a mouse in some ways and is sometimes a little more accurate but it is a bit of a learning curve in some ways. So try to tighten it up. It's coming 18:53 thanks a lot for checking out this episode of The Billy Newman photo podcast Hope you guys check out some stuff on Billy Newman's photo comm few new things up there some stuff on the homepage, some good links to other outbound sources, some links to books and links to some podcasts.

Wake the Faith up Slayer… This is Garth Heckman with the David Alliance and you can reach me at TDAgiantslayer@gmail.com Brought to you by wellbuiltbody.com Gym Apparel for men and women that rocks and shocks and ain't for everybody - but just might be for you. wellbuiltbody.com Not sure if you are a Ronnie Coleman fan, but he was probably the greatest Body builder of our day. And all the while as he was winning Mr. Olympia he still worked his day job as police officer…. Can you imagine getting pulled over by a 350 pound shredded officer Coleman. Talk about power…. but than again he had something even greater than that… he had authority. Angels and demons! Pro 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan. Luke 20:1-2 One day as he was teaching the people in the temple courts and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, together with the elders, came up to him. 2"Tell us by what authority you are doing these things," they said. "Who gave you this authority?” Matthew 1:22 The people were amazed because jesus taught with authority unlike the pharisees and scribes. And in v. 23 jesus casts out a demon. Luke 10:19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. Power is: Greek: Dunamis Def: “Inherent power;” “The ability to act;” “Having the might/efficiency/ability to do something” The source of our power is Pentecost: Acts 1:8 “You will receive power (Dumanis) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you...” Authority is: Greek: Exousia Def: “Ruling power;” “Being authorised to act;” “Having the right to do something” The source of our authority is the delegated authority of Christ, which He regained from the devil through Calvary's victory. He has given us authority over all power, all supernatural demonic power. So you might think… so we don't have power just authority? No no there are plenty of scriptures that point to our authority and power… but it is interesting here that Luke states that all we need is Gods authority to step over and crush the enemies power. Oh we have the power… but I will admit sometimes I don't feel like it, so I rest on the fact i don't even need Gods power when I am walking in his authority. And all that takes is him continually revealing himself to me… that I have the authority. I am now in a place that when I don't get answers to prayer I get mad… why? not just because I don't get the answer but because I know, I KNOW- I know, I have the authority. So when answers fail me, I ask God to show me again his authority in me. Reveal it again and again so that my power is activated and my faith is energized and my mind and heart catch up with my authority. hey, today, don't worry about stepping out in power, just know that you as a follower of Christ can step out in his authority. The skinny little cop has as much power as the Ronnie Coleman Cop… because he has the same authority.
