So do I, as there are regular weekly updates. But seriously the mangaka has lost the fkn plot.

But then again, I thought the same of GE. It may seem that way because of it being ongoing still?

Do you have a decent mic that you use for Skyping or anything like that? Audio quality is much more important than video quality IMO.

 

Failing that, borrow a DSLR from a friend. tongue.gif

I find the audio to be quite acceptable.

Not really GE is finished and I skimmed through it the first time not thinking much, now that I'm reading it properly up to almost chap 70 the story is more interesting and I'm liking it especially the characters dialog's of what they say. Kimi was only good up to 50-60 or so and a few moments from 100-130. After that everything was just meh, obviously the mangaka is out of idea's, even if it was finished I would've stopped at chap 130 or so without wasting my time on the later chapters.

Are you sure it's not because you're listening to your own voice? wink.gif

I don't know about you guys, but I shoot with a gun. :D

But if you're so inclined, I didn't know gun phones existed. :p

The background hiss is a little distracting, and often, it 'takes effort' to listen to you, you don't want that excess airiness around your voice. You can't get around it without using an external mic though.

 

If you want your videos to look sharper and less noisy, you need to make your room brighter with diffused lighting. Even if you prefer the darker/intimate look in your videos, you can just darken the footage in post, and the end result will be a much better picture, despite only using a phone. The phone's sensor is tiny, so give it lots of light!

 

Then again, the video is just a compliment to your written reviews, so it's no big deal. It's just something to work on if you want to seem more professional, and right now, the videos are a waste of time IMO.

I'm pretty sure there's an app for that. :D:D

He gave off recommendations based on his sound sig and educated guess. For example, IEM A was lauded by most, before he picked up for a review, to be a good basshead IEM. He reviewed it, and now he have a frame of reference to make a general recommendation for basshead now. Whenever he reviews another IEM, lets say IEM T, and it hits most of what IEM A has, he can probably say that IEM T is also a basshead IEM. At least that's what I would do if I were him, and it seems, looking at his review, it seems to be that way.
So you mean he's basically reviewing by committee and rating IEMs based on how other people rate them?

Just like where measurement kits are different between each other (purrin's vs rin's vs Tyll's vs GE), subjective comparisons are "objective" only within the scope of who made the comparisons. In the end, joker's reviews are just another datapoint in your research of a product. Go ahead and look for graphs to correllate that with other subjective observations. If it's consistent with all the subjective data and the objective measurements, and it doesn't match your own sound sig doesn't mean all that reviews/measurements are wrong.
That's the problem I pointed out in the first place.  If reviewers like joker had one sound sig he preferred and rated all the phones he heard according to this sound sig, you just need to find a reviewer whose sound sig aligns with yours and you'll be confident that you'll like whatever he likes.  When joker tries to be "objective", he ends up just assigning random SQ score to every phone because he could go "oh this sounds so totally like what I want to hear but what if my taste does not align with the majority" or "oh this sounds like crap to me but because it's got really sharp treble I'm sure detail lovers would love it".  And "objective" measures like detail regardless of FR (distortion figures and the like) and soundstage (correlation with HRTF curve averaged over hundreds of subjects, not joker's one pair of ears) are beyond the ability of joker's human ears to discern.  Result: SQ scores become totally random.

joker's, and others' impressions aren't the be all end all for what you're going to buy. Likewise with GE's, Tyll's, purrin's, rin's measurements aren't. Why limit yourself to a narrow set of data when you're deciding to buy new products?
Because joker's impressions are meaningless?

90% of the photos I take with my DSC-RX100 (compact cameras ftw) are RAW images. I just like to to get the best out of my pictures, and Lightroom is just perfect for that :)
But editing 250 photos? That is madness. I delete like 80% of the pictures I take :D
