Going to start posting video gear reviews
July 27, 2010 at 11:12 am #4137
I have a webcam now so I’m going to attempt to start doing video reviews of the gear I have. Not like the sales pitches you see but actual reviews. Hopefully it’ll come out okay. Any recommendations on how to go about it and what information to include?July 27, 2010 at 2:58 pm #27784Ursula AlusruParticipant
I enjoyed the ones on the main site, it helps to actually see a person wearing the gear, you get a better sense of how it might fit you in the reality of physical space. I think what you don’t like about the garment is always more interesting then what you do like about it – but that’s just my two cents.July 27, 2010 at 3:10 pm #27785
That’s what I want to do. I want to focus on the negatives of each garment, and say whether or not I consider them dealbreakers and why.July 28, 2010 at 10:38 am #27806eternal05Participant
One thing that I talked to Brian Van (of STG) about is the fact that when you’re reviewing mostly good products, it’s really hard to judge between equal-tier products from different companies. This is kinda in the same vein as your previous comment. If you could compare, for instance, two jackets that you liked on the whole and maybe list some reasons why a person might buy one or the other depending on their circumstances, that’d be really cool. It might be hard to work in, but I think it’d add a lot. Otherwise you end up in my shoes: “ok, so the A-Stars X and the Dainese Y are both great, they fit great, and their super protective? Well crap! Which one should I get?”August 2, 2010 at 1:16 pm #27882
Recording video reviews is rough when you’re prone to stuttering when you talk. I’ve recorded a review of my new Cortech jacket a few times already but I’m trying to get one where I don’t stutter too much. It sucks.
