Editor's Notes

November 11, 2018:

Most consumers may find their selections to be guided by their specific needs regarding a particular speed setting, so while maximum speeds were taken into account, the degrees by which those speeds could be adjusted proved more important. Companies like Bear and Ample Scientific are among those with the most renown, but features like the LCD readout on the Elmi CM-7S pushed a few other brands up the list.

After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
