Scott C’s Question: Do you have a favorite or suggestion other than TourFactory or Visual Tours (they’re being used in this market) Would like a company that is embracing ALL of the latest technology.
Answer: I use and recommend tourbuzz.net. I used to build my own tours for years and even helped start a tour company but still believe tourbuzz is the best. They have great technology, and great support and all for $12 a tour.
Michael’s Question: Which affordable “pole” contraption and which “drone” you recommend buying for elevated photography?
Answer: Which pole to use depends on if you use your main DSLR to shoot elevated shots or a point and shoot. Here are two options:
- If you use your main DSLR use this one. This allows you to safely get your DSLR up to about 14 feet.
- If you have a point and shoot use this one. This approach is much less expensive but you need use a small point-and-shoot camera.
John’s Feedback: I don’t do video and am not interested in it. So, the Sat. email on video does not get viewed by me. Also, I am disappointed when I get an email whose only content is to announce a contest, which I’m not yet good enough to enter. However, I do enjoy the recent Q&A emails very much. I would be happy to get one of those every day, although I am not recommending that. I would be happy if a Q&A could be included in the contest announcements, and with the Sat. video email, so I have something interesting to me to read. I do enjoy the email announcing the winner of the contest.
Answer: John, good idea for balancing the blog content between the various interests of blog readers. I’ll work on keeping a backlog of reader questions so that I can do that. I can’t promise it, but I’ll work at doing that.
