How is everyone doing? Did everyone in the USA enjoy their day off this past Monday? For those of us in Oregon, we spent it inside while trying to escape the smoke the best we could. The Photo Moments kicked off on Tuesday with a live test of the SAMSON Go Mic Mobile. There were some stream hiccups during the show itself, and we don't know whether to chock that up to changes YouTube recently made, the streaming setup, or the Go Mic itself. Luckily most of them were processed out in the final product. On Wednesday, we showed off the newest addition to the Live Streaming Studio: The Behringer X AIR XR16 sound mixer. Oh Man! This thing is full of capabilities! We're still playing with/adjusting it, so you may hear some slight (or majorly noticeable) differences in future shows while we tweak it to our and your liking. Thursday's show was an unboxing and first look at the Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmarit 8-18mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. Lens. And finally, on Friday, we tried to go live from on top of Mt. Ashland. There is amazing wifi up there, but for some reason the VidiU didn't want to hold a stable connection. Instead, we shot some footage, edited it, and uploaded it later. 

We hope everyone has a great weekend. And always remember, you can catch the Photo Moments LIVE every weekday at 9:30am PT.

We did the unboxing... now let's see if it's any good! Today's show will be broadcast from the YouTube app on an iPhone 7 Plus connected to the SAMSON Go Mic Mobile.

The Behringer X AIR XR16 is up and running! Definitely not fully configured yet, but let me show you what it's like so far! Also, we're using YouTube's new Ultra Low Latency Streaming Mode. What do you guys think about it?

This will be an unboxing (right after I re-box it...) and a first look of the Panasonic Leica 8-18mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. Lens. We'll pop it on the camera, see what the field of view looks like compared to the 7-14 and 12-35, and generally discuss the look and feel of the thing!

There's fresh air on the mountain! The live show failed due to a fast wifi connection that kept shutting down, so you're getting an edited one today...
