5 More New Filmmaking Gear Updates from NAB 2017

As I shared in yesterday’s video, NAB is one of the big video conferences I go to each year because I get a ton of value from it. 

Between meeting other filmmakers in person I’ve only known online before and getting hands-on time with some of the video gear I am wanting to test out before buying, it is definitely worth any time and money I spend to be there.

In this video I break down my top 5 favorite things I saw on Day 2 of NAB Show 2017.

This is the story of how we filmed and photographed our friend's secret wedding proposal, which was over a year in the making. 

Over the next few days we will be flying to New Zealand to document the wedding (which is happening just 4 days after the proposal) and then staying for another month to travel and explore.

1 Minute Unboxing — 15" Macbook Pro 2016 (With Touch Bar)

Most unboxings I watch are too long, so when I got the second new MBP in for my editor to use I decided to do something a little different and try to capture the experience, feel, and sounds of unboxing a product quickly. Might do more of these in the future...

If you're curious which model I went with, here are the specs of mine.

- 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 Quad-Core
- 16GB of 2133 MHz RAM | 512GB PCIe SSD
- AMD Radeon Pro 460 GPU (4GB GDDR5)

Like with all my major purchases, I bought this through B&H Photo Video. Here is my exact model

Our #NABShow 2016 Coverage

Last week I went to Las Vegas for the National Association of Broadcasters Conference. (Yeah, I know it sounds stuffy, but there are a lot of cool video companies and filmmakers that attend too.)

Somehow they manage to fill the entirety of all three halls in the convention center with gear and tech. SO MUCH VR.

My goal at NAB was to network with old friends, meet new ones, and share with you some new gear that you can use to make better videos. 

Ultimately, we made seven videos at NAB and shot a review of the Canon 80D
