SONY PJ760 FAIL, Youtube pros & cons advantages & disadvantages tue 6 nov 2012

Blog in progress re-written as you read it. (some copy pasta’d from my offline private blog).

Hi y’all. I’m uploading my 3 month video backlog, multiple daily uploads since august 2012, which shouldn’t be mixed with november or they’ll be out of sync & continuity. Not that the cameras ever stay in sync with the internal clocks of the nikon 1j1 & sony cx700 being unreliable & needing constant verification. (SONY HDR-PJ760 was EPIC FAIL🙁

SONY HDR-PJ760 DISADVANTAGES/ FAILS:

-much heavier & bulkier than cx700 esp for night pocket wide angle lens
-STOPS RECORDING & WONT START AGAIN UNTIL SAVED TO CARD
-MUCH worse audio than cx700 behind mic TOO DIRECTIONAL
-distortion or limit ducking
-much worse stabilizer doesnt work with wide conversion setting ON: zoom very shaky unwatchable even when on surface unless you switch OFF “wide conversion lens” menu setting & then it does black peripheral vignetting.
-undercontrasting at times
-no dual record photo capture w/50p (PS doesn’t say what quality it is-).. Nikon 1j1 does 30p & lets you dual record 15 x 2mp photos per video even if they’re low res & mostly blurry.
-need putty to keep external mic jack in
-false 2 photo dual record lcd display during video when in fact it only records 1 photo
-B&H sent it to me in july & it broke a month later in august right before my trip to Greece so I couldn’t find receipts & waste the end of my summer dealing with it.. i didnt even drop it. it just DIED. SONY FAIL.

the only 2 advantages:
+records video while saving to memory card (cx700 doesn’t & loses shots disabling record while saving)
+24 mp dual record photo video but that uses twice the memory of cx700’s 12mp..

RECENT YOUTUBE NEGATIVE CHANGES FOR THE W☹RSE:

I’m grateful to be on youtube & thank them for including my work in the searches even if there isnt much change in viewcount 10,000 videos a year later.. A bit of constructive criticism nevertheless, or at least a record of what i also see which “gets my goatse” lol:

-featured video doesn’t often show most recent in featured set” uploads.. it shows random videos as you upload & stays stuck featuring a video you don’t want featured for hours on end..

-uploads don’t get processed chronologically anymore like they used to, so continuity is broken & you can’t move thumbnails around in order.

-uploaded videos counter was removed from channel page to hide video upload count. It appears on mobile cellphones though, for now.. & on top of opened video pages. Now i type it in the description so.. nice try & fail to make me look worse by hiding my contributions..

-page indexing was removed to make it impossible to index pages & videos quickly & was replaced with that dreaded “LOAD MORE” button which forces you to click hundreds of times to view 100s of previous ages as opposed to jumping several at a time.. & won’t let you refresh the page without it defaulting back to page 1 again. on the plus side, you could load & save all thumbnails on one webpage document..

-metadating is disabled in multiple upload page (ftp?) after a few hours. Whereas before it would work for days, you could upload hundreds of videos in one multiple uploader window & metadata (thumbnail, title, tag, describe, link..) over many days via copy pasta.. now they make it impossible after just a few hours you get “your settings could not be saved: invalid request”. So if you have to constantly start new windows & metadate without breaks.

-frozen channel viewcounter for many days/ weeks to make your channel look dead when other counters change millions of views a day. Even vidstats.com & socialblade show “zero” “0” for many days on end, hiding tens of thousands of views.

-colors were removed & replaced with grey & black to make the channels look unappealing & limit traffic & when you copy paste text into a word document it pastes a permanent non removable grey background image behind the text.

beforemulticolor & afterdreary black & grey

-hidden tags: all of a sudden youtube hides the tags/ key words so you cant see them anymore.. people abuse them..

-overpromoted youtubers are given millions of subs & billions of views while the rest of us can’t get a fraction of that despite more work & contribution no matter what (edited episodes & regular uploads on geogodley youtube account: no change. 10,000 georgegodley videos in a year 2011-2012 despite false flag strikes & disabling of channel & 3 months leave= no change..)

 -thumbnail selection often bad & limiting & often wont change when selected even days later.

-monetized accounts still don’t get that partnership banner, thumbnail choice, & perks & privileges..

-allows explicit sex for partnership program members only?!: what about the rest of us?! http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=146399

-allows jason horton & lexington steele to post hardcore pornographic links in video & channel descriptions: Jason Horton links lexsteele twitter which links his adult site.. http://youtu.be/bx9G7UBf8mk  Lexington steele links his hardcore porn adult site in his youtube channel description so its okay for everyone else to do it too, right? wtf are we keeping *our* pants on for? lol http://www.youtube.com/user/mercenarypictures

-cut the titles off so you cant make an impression with a catchphrase or symbols. used to be much more characters, now cut down to a couple words.

-shrunk the “other channels” box to a tiny, ineffectual unnotable spec on the bottom of the channel. luckily i got in a few boxes with eye catching special characters when they were huge & took up the front page. now its unnoticeable & so wont much traffic.

-took off the “channels” link & honors charts on the homepage, hiding everyone.
