Friday evening Parisian time (or increda-early morning Australian time), I held another DCR Facebook Live session. A boatload of you joined, and we covered an even greater boatload of topics. Tons and tons of questions, so many questions that I wasn’t able to get through them all!
Of even more interest to folks than all the tech question is that The Girl jumped in too, around the 35 minute marker, for a blend of tech and just general DCR/Family/Bakery/Kid/Anything type questions.
Wait, you wanted more? The Girl (and I) might have announced something there.
Yet more still!?! I gave folks a special discount code. Regrettably for you, it’s already expired.
But no worries, you can still go back and enjoy 78 minutes of goodness. There’s very little that requires actual viewing, so you can stick it on in the background and just listen. I’ll also dump it into the DCR Podcast feed in the next day or so, thus you can listen there too.
With that – thanks for joining in! We’ve definitely got to do these more often!
(Tech tidbits: In case you were wondering, I used my Mevo camera for this again, and actually even the internal mics. I had wired up some lav mics, but the sound was almost a wash when I did some quick tests, and this reduced the chances of things going south. Also of note is that Facebook is frustratingly still limited to 720p for streams, despite announcing last week 4K for 360* videos. C’mon, at least go to 1080p! YouTube supports 4K @ 60FPS for regular streams!)
You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2019 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
