Now you need to keep in mind two things: 1) It's an awesome new iPhone 5 and 2) I've never had a smartphone before. *MIND BLOWN* This thing is freakin' incredible. I've only had it for a week now and I already don't know how I got along without one. I'm officially part of the 21st century, playaz! Now instead of not knowing where to go, I have the problem of choosing between Apple Maps or Google Maps. Dang.
Meilssa and her son Simon stopped by the shop during one of my final days at MOAB and presented me with this and gift card. For some reason, I think this was one of the more meaningful gifts I've received in a long time. Thank you guys so much!
I haven't finished it yet, but it is an excellent book thus far and I highly recommend it. I thought I'd finish it before I set out but I may just take it with me and reread it a few times. The extra weight and bulk doesn't matter.
The official run-down:
- Nikon D600
- 50mm f/1.4
- 16-35mm f/4
- Røde VideoMic Pro
- Contour Roam 2
- GoPro Hero 3 (Black Edition)
- Magnus fluid head tripod (not pictured)
I also picked up a rugged 1TB LaCie external hard drive from Ryan at Mac Authority. I knew I'd be taking a gazillion pics and hours of video but had nowhere to put 'em. My MacBook Air can only hold so much!
It's been a blast playing around with all this stuff and making films with Thad and others. I've learned a lot too which is always good. I still have a lot of un-processed footage though that I can hopefully do something with while on the road. And for the record, a 32GB SD card can hold A LOT. Shooting raw files on this camera yields ~24MB files (each!) and the card just eats 'em up. You can do the math on that. I have yet to max it out.
Stay tuned for more pics and videos! And as always, ask yer questions in the comments section.
