    Hey guys, here's my coverage from SHOT Show last week and I'll be adding more vids as I get them uploaded… 9 in total.  For transparency, I opened the coverage up to the whole industry and the first 10 organizations that came back requesting participation got it.  These 10 groups shared equally covering the cost of my trip, and Airguns of Arizona allowed me to stay (at my expense) in their hotel block, which saved me a lot of money and helped out a ton with convenience;

    Weihrauch Sport, Hatsan USA, Umarex USA, Optisan Optics, Diana Airguns, JSB/Predator, Air Venturi, Air Arms, Crosman, and Daystate

    … Weihrauch didn't have a booth but still wanted to help.  I'll be covering their booth at IWA in March.

    Steve,

    I haven't even looked at your vids yet but have to comment on your upfront disclosure.  It speaks to your character and identifies companies that actually do support us.  Very much appreciated.

    Thanks Rick… mostly just wanted you guys to know how booths get picked for a visit.  Inevitably there's always someone who gets their feelings hurt that I wasn't able to cover the booth of their favorite airgun brand. 

    Behind the scenes there, I had a good visit with Richard at Kalibrgun where they said they wanted to be a part of AEAC going forward.  Rob at RTI Arms invited me to cover their booth at IWA, Rustam at Ataman said he wanted to start working together through Pyramyd, as did Kevin at Hawke Optics… all good things to see.

    Thank you for the great event coverage, did you get any indication from AirArms that they may give 510 owners the ability to add a regulator to older models?

    Hi Steve, I, too, would like to give you kudos for the disclosure. The content is very good overall, and your coverage brings something different to the table.  The Optisan interview looked the most challenging. We are really lucky you share our love for this sport.

    Hopefully the following two technical comments are useful (I wrote something similar on youtube, but I think they were lost when you re-uploaded that video):

    1. Audio seems panned (almost?) entirely to the right channel.  You are on the right track with recording each input into a separate channel, but you then need to mix the all input channels into both left and right during post-processing.  When I do live events I mix real-time via an external battery operated mixer, but post-processing is the better work flow.

    2. Video seems to be captured with a wide angle lens, and if you stand too close and to the edge of the frame, it distorts the perspective in a non-pleasing manner.  The best option is to use a slightly longer lens (higher mm) and back off a bit from the subject.  With a full frame 35mm camera the ideal for portraits is 135mm just to give you concrete data.  You probably don't have that much space in the venue to work with.
