Slow Motion with the GoPro5 KARMA

The GoPro KARMA system is a controversial piece of kit. Conflicting opinions abound on the internets as to whether it is a quality product or not. In case you’ve been under a rock this past year, the GoPro KARMA system is a drone with a detachable gimbal and camera which can all be used as one unit or separately. It was recalled briefly after launch due to poor battery latch design. The recall certainly affected the public perception; as well as the accompanying videos of BatteryGate crashes did perpetuate the negative coverage of KARMA on YouTube.

I will say KARMA has a bit of a steep learning curve, and I did experience certain issues while learning the limits of the system. Overall my personal opinion is that it is a fine product with versatile uses, however GoPro isn’t explicitly clear about how to avoid these issues that many first time and overconfident users will experience. I won’t delve into the gritty details here of all the issues- But I will embed some videos I have created over the past months, and let you see for yourself how I use this versatile camera stabilization system for YouTube.

Marathon in 2017

This will be the year I run a full marathon.  I began training in early November, and I will be documenting my hopes, frustrations, and progress here and on YouTube.



Furo Mustelids

Better known as ferrets, carpet sharks, noodle dogs, or domesticated polecats. These wonderfully intelligent hunting/companion animals have been a part of human life for at least 2500 years. I’m lucky enough to keep four of these amazing little predators; and share what they are really like for those people out there with misinformation or assumptions about ferrets. Here is a very quick how-to video on easily clipping nails on four squirmy, hyper ferrets.  Also much fun playtime footage 😉  Enjoy!

Please click over to my YouTube channel to leave questions or comments and I will do my best to address them in an upcoming video. Thanks for watching!

Living with 4 Ferrets

This is another YouTube project of mine; essentially just a montage of daily life with four ferrets. Sushi, Wasabi, Katsura, and Obi all came from various adoption ads on Craigslist at different times over a period of about two years. They have since all bonded successfully and enjoy each other’s company greatly despite coming from very different homes.

I hope you enjoyed that. Any questions or comments pertaining to ferrets; please click over to my youtube channel to post. I plan on collecting comments for a Ferret Q&A Session video in an upcoming project. Thanks again for watching!
