A New Level of Geekdom

 

phantom3As long as I can remember, I’ve been a Geek, more specifically, a Techno-Geek.  I have always loved anything technology-based.  I needed to figure out how it works, how it can benefit and how can I use this in my life.  This is one of the reasons that I am a Web Designer.  To me, work is not”WORK”.  It is no more of me spending my day playing on the computer, putting pretty pictures on web sites.

Within the last year, I have gotten interested in the merger of Web Design with the use of video.  I know that this has been around for quite a while, but I want to figure out a way to take it a step further.

I started doing a daily “Vlog” on YouTube almost 1 year ago (I am currently on video #291) with the idea of merging the vlogging community with web design and other Social Media Platforms.

A new level of my passion started on Father’s Day in June, 2015.  My Wife and Daughters bought me a Quadrocopter with a video camera on it, a small Drone.  I started playing with it immediately and LOVED it.  I became familiar with the controls as they are not much different than many of the flying video games that I have played in my life.  Once I felt as though I had mastered the Quadrocopter, it had many limitations, it was very light and was difficult to fly even in the slightest of breezes and the video camera was very low quality and could not be used for broadcast purposes, even on YouTube.

I began searching on the web and came across a product manufactured by a company named DJI called the Phantom 3 Advanced and Pro.  I found that many Professional Vloggers are currently using the DJI Phantom 2 for their Vlogs with much success.

After doing much research on this “drone”, I purchased a DJI Phantom 3 Advanced through Amazon.com last week and I LOVE IT!!!

I am currently learning the functions of the aircraft now, but have created two short videos that are currently on my YouTube Channel (DJI Phantom 3 Videos).  As I become more comfortable, I will be creating more videos and posting them on this channel.

This aircraft is very easy to fly and control.  It has GPS connections so that if you loose site of the craft, it can fly back directly to where it took off from.  It also uses the GPS connections to maintain a steady hover, this is very convenient when shooting video.

Here is one of the videos that I have recorded using the Phantom 3

 

I am currently so happy that I purchased this product and I hope to bring many, many Brilliant videos to my YouTube Channels and again, I have achieved a new level of my Geekdom!!!
