10 Answers...

That was actually quite fun to do, as it turned out. Other than glancing over the questions in Google Moderator a couple times, I didn't do any preparation, so the answers are more-or-less totally extemporaneous. (I had to do a couple over, because I got lost in thought or digression.) Basically, I printed out the top 10 questions this morning, took a drive out to the desert, set up my Olympus OM-D E-M5, and let 'er rip. Audio was recorded on a Tascam DR-2d via a JK MIC-J 044 lav mic. (I highly recommend the latter. For the money, turned out to be pretty sweet.)

If this is something that people find interesting, I'll be happy to do it again. I enjoyed it quite a bit. If there's another form factor for videos you'd like to see, I'd be happy to consider those, as well.

So you are a real person after all. I always thought you were a blue robot.
You come across as a really nice person with a lot of insight.

@brianvega: people that only know me from my snarky sniping on Twitter or whatever assume I'm some kind of raging asshole in real life, but I'm actually a pretty reasonable dude. Just ask me. I'll tell you.

Dug it. When are we getting an EP worth of that outro music? Hell, I may have to throw that in the running for next month's Q & A.

Interesting Q&A, would love to see another episode too. A small cactus you say? Damn, I want to see one of the big ones in the next video.

Enjoyed that, Good job! Even though my curiosity was more or less sated by the first question/answer I watched the entire thing, because, you know, cactus.

OT, are you enjoying the Oly more than your Nikon kit for video?
I'll more than likely have to break down and make some tutorial/promotional videos sooner or later.

The background was a great choice.
