Editor's Notes

November 07, 2018:

While the top options on the market aren't many, they are universally pretty reliable. Print quality was held above just about any other consideration, with experienced imaging companies like Canon, Kodak, and HP producing the finest models.

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).
