    I take another close look at my Seiko Prospex Shogun SBDC007 titanium watch with the 6R15 Japanese movement. The secret to this watch is the magical Diashield Titanium which looks like stainless steel but is VERY hard and scratch resistant. The thermal properties of this titanium as well as the light weight (about 105 grams) make this watch exceptionally comfortable on wrist in all conditions. Other specs: 42mm; Thickness 13.3 mm; Lug to lug 50mm; Weight 105g; Signed Crown; 120 click bezel; Drilled lugs; 22mm titanium bracelet.

    Note: After making this video I moved a link from the 12pm side of the bracelet to the 6pm side to better center the clasp. This helped with the clasp sitting flush with the wrist. Now the watch rides perfect on wrist. So make sure when you adjust the band that you center the clasp properly. Now, if it's possible, this watch is even more comfortable! Also, after about a month of constant wear the watch seems to have settled down to about +1.5 seconds a day. I can live with that.

    Additional update: After about two months the watch is now running a few seconds slow each day. I would rather it run fast but it's still well within acceptable time keeping specs for an automatic watch.

  3. Amabilia Camera Cases are Made In Italy. I'm a little bit old school and I like this style of camera gear case. The Pelican Cases are great but I like the style of Amabilia, Rimowa and Halliburton aluminum cases. Video by CraigShipp.com

  5. The Renfrew Civil War Reenactment 2014 video was shot 90% with the new Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. Only the wide shots of the Fife and Drum musicians in the beginning were shot with my Sony A7r. Even then all the cut-away shots were with the FZ1000 hand-held. In fact all the shots with the FZ1000 were hand-held in the 4k mode and many zoomed in on the action to the max zoom which is 500mm+ in the 4k mode. Also, at the end of the video all the action shots with gun fire the sound was captured with the built in mics on the FZ1000. The battle scenes were over exposed because I had the shutter speed at 1/60th and the camera only stops down to f8. My mistake because I didn't have an ND filter I should have bumped up the shutter speed to get a better exposure. This was not the camera's fault.

    From 15:50 on the audio is from the built-in FZ1000 stereo mics

    Note: At 10:20 the second series of the Fife and Drum group the audio was captured with my Shure Lens Hopper on the FZ1000. See my review at: youtube.com/watch?v=F88sW4qV9Jk
