Hey, @hiveio and @threespeak. Back with another EUC VLOG! This time, I started in uptown Minneapolis by our beloved Hive incubator, @caffetto. So wish we could be sitting at the tables playing MTG, but alas, not yet…and probably not for a while to be honest. For anyone that’s been keeping up with the social unrest as a result of George Floyd’s murder […and consequently, all unjust killing that lead up to this catalyst], uptown Minneapolis is where it happening. I talk about that briefly in the video.
Something I find amusing is that part of why I pursued VLOG’s so much is that I thought they’d be faster than sitting and writing for all my Hive posts. As it turns out, that’s not so. There is so much pre/post production that goes in to these, and upload time, it definitely takes longer. They are, though, a neat way to mix up the content in my feed and an excuse to take the EUC out on long rides. The trip from @caffetto to my house is about 5.5 miles and I can make it in about 25 minutes.
This has been an ongoing process of refinement to find the format that works best. The Insta360 camera is by far superior to the GoPro MAX [for my specific use case, that is]. A much more elegant app and smart tracking which allows the 360º footage to follow in video, intelligently re-recording, adding POI keyframes based on where you are. So cool. The stitching out of the selfie stick is better as well. I did crash hard earlier in the day during a ride with @nickcdavis, so I wasn’t at my best, but enjoy.
