Content Insider #522 - Entertainment Unleashed
by Miles Weston
I've never tried binge viewing. If I miss a segment of a show I don't break into a cold sweat. When a series disappears from our home OTT viewing schedule I shrug my shoulders and move on to something else. When the commercials come on I watch (and memorize) 'em. I know, it's a little wierd. My daughter on the other hand can't get enough video. She'll watch something on the TV while catching up with her favorite online video(s) and check out the important stuff on her iPhone. And neither of us even scratch the surface of what's available to watch. No one can because there are only 24 hours in a day. Content production and consumption is changing so quickly and niche viewing is becoming more important than mass audience no matter which screen people use.

Photographers need to be ready to take a photo at a moment's notice, but must be diligent in protecting the expensive equipment they are using. Ditching a lens cap for a cheap UV filter reduces the time it take you to go from camera off to click the shutter. Camera bags are chosen for their ability to keep gear safe and how easy they allow you to access that gear. If you are of an adventurous mind and spend your time hiking through the woods, casting a line in a river, or any number of outdoor activities, you face the same two problems but to more of an extreme. The Cotton StrapShot EV1 Holster is here to lend a helping hand.
