I will write down here some notes about my experience with several microphones I have and I want to leave here some considerations about what microphone should be used depending on situation and location.

I end up buying really cheap and affordable microphones, than I checked what it works and what it doesn’t for me and I tried to get the best audio possible from them. It seemed more fun than just buying the most expensive mic available and just make a video about it and tell how good it is.

FOTGA A50TLS – Affordable Field Monitor

I was looking for a good quality field monitor that it didn’t cost too much, so on AliExpress I found this little nice monitor by FOTGA, the A50TLS at around $210 US Dollar.

You find the monitor on AliExpress and you can visit the official page if you are looking for firmware update and more information about the monitor (but there is not much actually on the website).

2020: What am I going to do?

I wrote a to do list in 2019, I failed to achieve most of the points on that list.

In 2019 I started to do a mini vlog series to practice in front of the camera and it was a way to try something new and learn how to properly use my gear, than I did some really basic tutorial of Premiere Pro CC but I didn’t keep up with them, there are already so many out there that I didn’t feel inspired to make new ones. I learn a lot about audio and how to set it right on PP, so I am quite satisfied about it.

I keep doing this music video for myself mostly, the content on my channel is quite boring, if watched by someone else other than me. I started this fictional company of mine, Disco Film, and I like it, I had lots of inspiration from Peter McKinnon and Matti Haapoja.

I like doing emotional videos, is really easy to find ideas when you travel, probably that’s why there are so many travel videos out there. But who is really interested in seeing travel videos other than who made it?

I don’t know the cause but my mood is a total mess, and I feel like it is the main reason why I can’t make almost anything work out as I want. To make interesting content, to make anything worth it to see, I should be happy, inspired, willing to learn, practice as much as possible and be positive about my goals and life.

I need to improve on many points here.

What am I interested the most to watch on YouTube? I like watching tutorials and get advice to improve film making skill, also I like watching music videos that inspire me to do more.

So in 2020, I think I should do the same, but here comes my negativity taking over my goals for the new year…

If you can not be happy trying to do what you ‘think’ you like, should you keep doing what you don’t like instead? Definitely something to think about in 2020.
