I thought it would be a good idea to talk about some of the different conventions I've attended in the past year. My intent is to share some photos, video, and information about the cost in order to help people decide whether they should attend. It takes time and money to go to a convention and you want to have some confidence that it will be an enjoyable experience. My perspective is that of a photographer and videographer of course, so my interests may be different from yours.

As someone who attends a lot of conventions, I am keenly attentive to conventions cancelling. The concerns around COVID-19 are really starting to affect conventions, including three that I have been planning to attend (Emerald City Comic Con, Sakura-Con, and NAB). I assume that most conventions consider attendee safety their number one concern, even though you probably won't see it listed in any of their documentation. It's assumed that safety is a number one priority, so what happens when a convention is cancelled to meet that priority?

Epidemicsound.com is a music licensing service that allows you to use high quality music in your video content. There are many music licensing services out there - Artlist, Musicbed, Musicvine, Audiio, Soundstripe, etc. However, there's a distinct advantage to a service like Epidemicsound - no copyright claims.

Three New Cameras: E2-S6, E2-F6, and E2-F8The Z CAM flagship series is an exciting new batch of cameras in the E2 lineup. They feature 6K and 8K sensors and are available in PL, EF, and Micro 4/3 mounts (S6 only) . While the Z CAM website has a lot of technical information about these cameras, it doesn't get into the details of frame rates and resolutions. It's understandable that these details can be a deciding factor in your purchasing decision, so I will cover them here.

Yeticon is nestled up against the ski slopes of the Blue Mountains, right near Lake Huron. The location is both picturesque and unique. It's the only anime and geek culture convention that I know of with a ski lift and mountainside roller coaster-type thing.
