Well, this happened yesterday with my YouTube channel.
I knew it was going to happen, but then got caught up in something and came back to find I’d missed it. (I was going to film the screen live and capture it).
Anyway, it’s a bit humbling. I’ve never really promoted the channel, and strangely, most of the 350 or so video are the corporate videos I’ve done with a handful of music videos and documentaries thrown in.
Then there are those series of camera reviews I did on the NX30 and X70 which account for about a third of all the views as well as a few other odd tutorials.
The Sony X70 review I think surpassed all other camera reviews on the internet in terms of views and comments. It’s an old camera and is still being watched every day as my top video and is sitting around 180,000 views.
The only thing being seen in bigger numbers these days is DRONE REVIEWS! And I don’t plan to get into that as the field is very ably covered, I assure you.
But I do have a drone now (DJI Mavic Pro Platinum), so that’s something you’ll be seeing more of here in the next short while.
If you thought I was gobsmacked with the NX30 (in its time) and the X70 (in its time), the DJI Mavic Pro technology is beyond “pure frickin’ magic'” by a lightyear or two.
Anyway friends, THANK YOU for being there and following me or putting up with me or whatever it is that you’ve been doing.
I will be entering my next phase soon and it’s likely to be a new platform (Patreon.com). It will be introduced by a new video (featuring me–like in the old review videos, and some splashy drone footage shot around here where I live in Chalabre, France). It’ll be cool.
I had hoped for that to coincide with the million views, but that didn’t work out. I hope to get around to it very soon.
I’m actually retired now, so this will be my retirement phase. It will be more aligned to giving you guys what you want rather than me shoving down your throats what I’ve done and why.
It will be fun, and soon I’ll invite you all to be part of it.
Meanwhile, Happy New Year.
And thank you for sticking with and occasionally saying nice things about me these past few years. (insert winking smiley face here–apparently not a WordPress option)
Congratulations! That is amazing.
Glad to have added to the count viewing your X70 video.
I look forward to seeing what you do next.
Cheers from Canada!
Thanks Gerry. I think one thing new you’ll be seeing is simply (and aesthetically) an introduction to a very special (and top secret) area of France, rich in history, architecture, wine, culinary delights, culture, tradition, topography, architecture and Old World magic that is where I live.
