CO Production Upgrades Coming

Posted on Wednesday, April 10, 2013 in World of CO

IMG_2589So after 5+ years of faithful service, my little Aiptek camcorder is showing it’s age and it’s even bothering me seeing the relatively poor performance I get from it. I’ve learned to live with all the idiosyncrasies of production with it but it’s time to bit e bullet and just use some of my Pro Gear for the site. I know the quality will immediately take a 10x increase, although my production time is going to suffer greatly. Going from 125MB/min to 500+ takes it’s toll and physically working with the gear as a one-man run-and-gun setup certainly isn’t as easy as press a button and talk :) Anyway, I’m absolutely slammed with work these days but hope to have the switch over in the next video or two. Stay tuned boys & girls!

    Even better quality? You’re spoiling us, my friend! :)

  2. tglynnus says:

    I’ll be honest, I never really noticed anything quality-wise to complain about. I hope (selfishly) that the new set-up doesn’t hold up new videos too much!! I greatly look forward to the new reviews (like everyone else). But if it makes it easier for you, it can only be better for us in the end. Keep up the awesome work, no matter what equipment you’re on!

  3. Walshy says:

    cant wait Bryan. Quality was extremely good to begin with. Can’t wait to see the difference

  4. rockjock says:

    Just try and keep the bit rate under control for us guys with live-in-the-country slow DSL.

  5. neocigaro says:

    Nice better quality, hope it isn’t much of a drag to upload the new videos.

  6. Rob says:

    if 720p is relatively poor performance, I can’t wait to see what the new set up will look like.

  7. yosef5 says:

    Happy for you. &of course us.

  8. tom0557 says:

    I admire your quest for perfection especially as I’m sure many of us think your videos are top-notch.

  9. garlar10 says:

    We appreciate the hard work Bryan! look forward to the new videos

  10. Romel says:

    Hi Bryan, the quality was really good already. But I guess now , its going to be more high def. Before you know it will be 3D lol. Great job as always, Bryan.

  11. MorganGeo says:

    I’ve always been appreciative of how good the sound is on your videos.

  12. macko says:

    Hell Bryan I didn’t see anything to complain about I am new on the site but watched the videos for a while. I hope the new system will catch your rants as well as the old way!!! LOL. Congrats on the new toys.

  13. TimB says:

    Quality is always great,but new gear is always good.

  14. gtclark says:

    Awesome news – looking forward to new and improved video quality!

  15. curtpick says:

    Using your Canon DSLR Now Bryan ? I run the 5D MKII and its a great Video Cam.

  16. curtpick says:

    Just saw the video.. The 7D ?

  17. alwayscigartime says:

    Bryan it would be cool if you showed a side-by-side of the difference in video. We all appreciate your continuing improvements!

  18. Sinsandman says:

    Sounds like a lot of work and adjustment, but I look forward to the quality increase.

  19. fabio2191 says:

    can’t wait for the new camera the videos have always been good but it can only get better.

  20. ryanryan2120 says:

    watch him look 20 years older on this new camera

  21. david121 says:

    Can’t wait to see the new videos! Quality was just fine before but if you want to improve it then by all means lol

  22. dbfr181 says:

    Looking forward to seeing the new equipment at work!

  23. LxArkitekt says:

    This is awesome. I think this is what sets you apart from other reviewers I’ve seen. You actually care about the quality of the stuff you put out for us.

  24. NMartin says:

    Looking forward to seeing the quality change. Your videos have always been easy on the eyes, but this improvement will make that much more of a good impression to new viewers/members of the site.

  25. mbuckwash says:

    Awesome. I already thought your work was of a high quality, so anything better is just gravy.

  26. stevenknisley says:

    I cant wait to see these new improvements.

  27. gumby_130 says:

    Nice , what’s next?

  28. ryan b says:

    cool! interested to see the difference!

  29. Boucher207 says:

    And i thought it looked good already! Keep up the good work B!!

  30. pipebear333 says:

    Maybe you can work “smell-a-vision” into the new set-up?

  31. vscarpine says:

    Vids looked great to start with but Im sure this will make things better. Everything is growing and upgrading so quickly lately…kepp up the great work

  32. Craig says:

    I know its a LOT of work reviewing, editing, and prepping your video’s for our pleasure. Maybe a quick video on the whole process from beginning to end result would let everyone see exactly what all you do for us! Just a thought.

  33. rgmenke says:

    New equipment! It’s like Christmas is April.

  34. chizzlechink says:

    How can WE help YOU? I’d buy an app for a daily dose of CO! Hire staff, build the empire, and sell out before you hit 45. It’s a brand my friend! You’re welcome.

  35. Jared says:

    That’s a heck of a bit rate increase for little old us. You could have webcammed it and we’d still be watching, especially those of us whose knowledge is limited to, “Man, that smells pretty good! Tastes good too!”

  36. derek_straus says:

    That is a sweet setup! I cannot wait to see the way it looks! I like the dead cat boom cover by the way!

  37. Chris Tivnan says:

    Seems like the site is a lot of work for you. And keeping tabs on the saboteurs is probably tiring too.

  38. gumby_130 says:

    Bryan you should bring back the cigar shootout,just not the cheap ones.

  39. MR_EXPRESS says:

    Excellent. I can’t wait for the quality to improve!

  40. Daniel.A says:

    nice. enjoy your videos either way Bryan. oh and sorry about the camera.

  41. puffrey says:

    Better quality?!

    On the positive side…it sounds like we will almost be able to taste the flavors of the cigars in the review

    On the downside….how many people are going to steal your work now?!

  42. zanlamb says:

    Just saw the new vid and from our point of view its well worth the extra effort. Were you using anything to thold the iPhone in?

  43. jpculp57 says:

    New format is very easy on the eyes! Excellent upgrade Mr. Glenn!

  44. ctigers15 says:

    looks good, looking forwards to the better quality.

  45. playersrun1 says:

    looking forward to the upgrades..going to watch some of the new ones now
