Part of this experiment will be this blog. The other part will be a YouTube channel. So I’m experimenting with my equipment to see what sort of work this is all going to entail. So I went outside and shot a few video clips and threw them into iMovie, just to see how it would go. That process took about an hour, and it’s the first time I’ve even opened iMovie. Kudos to the developers of that software for making it very intuitive to use for newbies.
The Nikon D7000 is not a new camera by any means. It was released in September of 2010, so for electronics tech, it’s getting pretty long in the tooth, so to speak. But I’ve almost never been able to bring myself to get rid of old tech just because there is something newer available. Several laptops have been repurposed over the years and at least one of my kids runs Linux Mint as their daily driver for surfing the web and playing Minecraft.
In fact, if you’re in central North Carolina and you have a slow computer that you think you need to just get rid of, let me know, I can probably save you some money and breathe new life into it.
