First time Vlogging with the DJI Osmo Action

I’ve done a couple tech reviews looking at three-axis gimbals in the last month. While they always provided silky-smooth video footage, that came at a cost.

My first YouTube video

I finally got around to doing my first proper YouTube video – after many, many, many, aborted attempts. I’ve filmed hours and hours of footage and just hated all of it. So, instead, I put a brief two-minute intro together as I can’t procrastinate on this task any more. Enjoy. 🙂 TRANSCRIPT 0:00:37.309,0:00:41.940Hello and welcome to… whatever this is. 0:00:41.940,0:00:46.900My…
