    Hello from So Cal

    Triple play wins state championship

    That coach.....too funny. What a great memory they will have for the rest of their lives.

    Live Stream Plunge

    2 quick items: 1.) If you get fence in the shot with Medium or narrower FOV, getting the camera closer to the fence is the only solution (unless the fence openings are smaller than standard fencing). If you have one of those plastic tripod mounts that "lean", make sure it leans towards the...

    Live Stream Plunge

    I would doubt they add this to the 6. Unfortunately, I also doubt they do much more with the 7. One of the disadvantages about GoPro coming out with a new line each year is that they don't focus on expanding the existing hardware. But it often times ends up in the next line.

    Live Stream Plunge

    It could be resolved with a firmware upgrade. We are pleading with GoPro to fix it.

    Live Stream Plunge

    If they are using the GoPro HERO7 (which they probably are...other GoPro's can't easily stream without external involvement), you can only stream in the wide Field Of View. Unfortunately, this is a huge limitation to GoPro's first stab at streaming. Until they get that fixed, a smartphone or...

    Live Stream Plunge

    I've never tried the LIVE4 app. Let us know how that goes. The soft "unlimited" limit is why we have been playing with a hotspot from OTR Mobile. It is truly unlimited LTE (via ATT network) that has no throttle point. I disconnected our internet at home and plugged in the hotspot for several...

    Opinions on this single post web?

    I think your spousal unit is a very patient individual. :-)

    Predictions on the WCWS??

    I can't tell if I'm just more into it this year. But I will have to say it is some of the most enjoyable ball I've watched in a long time. I would have loved to see the Huskies go the distance, just because I love gritty teams. And as good as the semi's were, I hope the championship isn't a...

    DD had an awesome game today (pitcher)

    Isn't it awesome to sit back and be in awe of what youth players can do. I remember at one point in one of my player's young career, I leaned over to her mom and said "I'm not sure I was ever able to do that.". When those moments happen, I'd rather watch youth ball over professional anytime...

    How protective should a catcher be of her mitt?

    My son always kept an older mitt in his bag. Was a good idea for backup purposes, but is also the mitt he offered if someone needed to use one.

    Pocket Radar Battery Life

    That's actually a better design. Charging in the field while taking readings would generate more heat than needed possibly causing an overload. Good job guys!

    Solution for Chafing behind the Knees

    Has she tried criss crossing the straps?

    Last minute decision to play in college....

    Above is great advice. One other suggestion would be to look at the JC option. If your player has A+ (I'm assuming that translates outside of Missouri) scholarship is no longer in play. Playing at the JC level is a great way to get the experience and the looks from larger institutions down...

    GoPro Vs DJI Osmo

    We have one on the way and will be reviewing. I'm told the wireless companion app is horrendous. Ultimately, I have grave concerns that it is a fixed FOV camera. There is no discussion of FOV or zoom in the user manual. If that is the case, it is sort of a deal breaker. Stay tuned. They...

    Today I recorded my 400th game with the LynkSpyder

    The higher the better. This helps several things: 1.) You see over people and more of the plate. 2.) When shooting at night, it takes the lights out of the equation. But I recommend shooting behind one of the batters boxes and not dead center with an umpire. Ideally, the box opposite of the...

    GoPro Hero 7

    Disclaimer: A farm engineered/janky solution is about to ensue... To my knowledge, the microphones cannot be turned off on the GoPro cameras. One solution some folks have tried is just put electrical tape over the microphones (I would be concerned about possible heat buildup with this...

    Lynkspyder vs The Fence Clip

    Agree on the ball cap. That's what we do. But on shooting 4K, you only get the wide view that if you crop down you are in the 1080p range. We recommend shooting at 1080p/60. It is good resolution for the sport and works the camera less hard, and therefore shuts down less. Make sure when you...

    Still Photography - Gear, Settings, Tips & Tricks

    One thing helpful is to shoot in manual. Unless there are shadows on the field, each spot should meter nearly the same. Reduce the number of variables you have to deal with; or rather, automatic miscalculations that sometimes can ruin an otherwise perfect shot. At various points before you...

    Proud of my Student Athlete

    I'm ever impressed with student athletes that don't just "mail it in" academically. I can't even imagine the toll it takes on the body to accommodate that schedule. Very impressive!
