Editor's Notes

January 29, 2019:

Vlogging nowadays requires little more than a half-way decent microphone and a DSLR or mirrorless camera. Features like fully articulating displays and high-quality video files were certainly important, but the ability to produce 4K video wasn't a deal breaker, especially since most people don't view much online content at that high of a resolution. Canon understandably has a few models here, as their cameras put out great looking videos that usually need few adjustments in post.

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).
