June 24, 2020
TechTalkUK 28 - Blood, sweat and tears
Blimey, this was like pulling teeth. First 10 mins deleted as my new Mic was blasting the Audio at crazy level without that being visible to me in software, and then we moved to direct recording and Richards end was clipping like mad, as his mic volume in Audacity was creeping up to max all the time.  This is the best I could salvage, so be prepared to play with the volume knob on this one and some comments may sound odd if they reference the missing 10 mins.  
June 21, 2020

June 14, 2020
TechTalkUK 25 - The one with Terrible audio.....again
With apologies to you all and my co host, I buggered up the audio on this one, but Dave Rich has rescued it so at least we can released it, after all with me paying Richard £0.00 per hour, I can't afford to re record it :-) This is the video I am talking about when we get into the weeds on camera stuff, what do you think about using the crop factor on lens reach *and* aperture? Plenty of videos don't agree with Tony on this one.  Video for counting both. Video against.........   I can see both points here, but this guy makes a great point that it only really matters if you switch between different systems? if you can spare a couple of quid or dollars or whatever you like :-) So thanks again, sorry for the audio, 
June 10, 2020
TechTalkUK 24 -
Kev and Rich back again with another show.
June 07, 2020
TechTalkUK 23 - What an Anchor!
So Kev has his new old, Macbook back, but can't actually get it to record a show, so we went back to iPads and Airpods again, hopefully it's listenable. A couple of times there was a bit of overlap when we both spoke at different times but the recording seems to have overlaid them, you can not edit it like a Audio Hijack/Skype call as all voices are on one track (actually it's stereo but both tracks are identical). Long story short it's not perfect :-) Sorry for any and all confusion over donations, all gratefully received, no amount too small or too large 🤣, but for now forget about recurring amounts, just use and I will receive all the dosh, PP won't get a slice. Kev
June 03, 2020
TechTalkUK 22 - Wireless nightmare.
Apologies up front for this one, had to record on iPads with Airpods, and it did not go well. Hopefully listenable if you have literally nothing else to listen to :-) Back to normal next show, promise. Oh, and I say its show 21 at the start as I thought I made the little 20 min show 20a, but I didn't so.............Hey, SpaceX and NASA are awesome right? Kev
