Old Timers Role Call - WEVA Event DV

I have not logged in here for many years. Are any old-timers still lurking?

Re: Old Timers Role Call - WEVA Event DV

Well I am 62 now so suppose that may count as an old timer.

Still in the TV industry tho after 43 years of fun and filming plus at the BBC in Manchester now so only 130 miles from home!

Nice. I don't even know where the time went but I do miss forums and could care less about social media platforms

You joined in 2003 whereas I only joined in early 2009. Wondering who has the oldest membership join date on this forum. Would be interesting to find out.

This site was incredibly useful to me. I can't even begin to explain how educational it was. Not to mention how much I enjoyed being a part of this community. Chris even published an article I wrote once upon a time about the evolution of our industry. I am still a working professional videographer. But I don't have any other resource available that is as valuable as this site was back in that day. Life changes, technology changes, you keep up or die. Thank you Chris Hurd for creating something so valuable to so many of us for so many years!

I really miss this place, and forums/message boards in general.

Re: Old Timers Role Call - WEVA Event DV

First time here in a while.

Last week I put my old Bogen Manfrotto video tripod up for sale... I got it based on some recommendations from here and the newsgroups back in the day.... that is in like early 2000s.

I can't believe I'm still doing this all these years later. I ventured off into photography in 2017 as well.

This past year I got hired by United Launch Alliance as a contract photographer which has been pretty cool.

I learned so much here over the years. Such a great resource. Kind of like DPReview.

Re: Old Timers Role Call - WEVA Event DV

Relative newbie here are 8th Feb 2011. There never seemed to be a very active and comprehensive forum anywhere for wedding work, unlike with photography. I mainly used this wedding room and up to a point the Vegas room though Vegas was better served by its own Sony / Magix forum.

Forums come and go anyway. There was the Digital Wedding Forum DWF once with many thousands of paying subscribers from all over the World but that was dead and buried long ago probably killed off my free social media groups.

Even DVInfo has given up the ghost recently. I was a member from 27th Dec 2001. Fred Miranda, which I joined 29th March 2004, is still going strong though not much in its wedding room and still less with video.

The only forum I use regularly is DaVinci Resolve. It is very active and has a ton of in depth posts from experts including the Blackmagic staff.

Re: Old Timers Role Call - WEVA Event DV

Today I logged in for the first time in ages. I originally joined in Feb 2009 or almost 15 years ago. I was very active at one time with over 3.5K posts although I gave up videography about 10 years ago & sold all my gear. I still really appreciate the support that I got in this forum.

Like others I mourn the death of similar forums as they are so much more useful than the awful mess that is Facebook groups. DP Review is still pretty active.

Now I am fully retired I still do a bit of video but find photography more interesting. I just use my iPhone 12 Pro Max or Sony Cybershot RX100M6.

Best wishes to all the other old timers still around. I will still drop in to DV Info from time to time.

I look in most days to see what's going on :) , just to add this forum was very helpful to me, full of great advice, tips and links. I don't relay on it as much now, i'm retired. :)

Re: Old Timers Role Call - WEVA Event DV

I joined a tad later in Feb 2009, and this is one of my mandatory daily visits when it comes to websites.

DVinfo is priceless.

Been here a while but not near as often lately.

Hey DMB, I remember you also from the videouniversity forums, your wedding video with the AC/DC song long way to the top is still one of the best ever.
