Vlogging Cameras

Okay, while my UI-kits are in the process of going up in about 7 days, let's talk vlogging cameras since in about 90 days will be vlogging.

Casey Neistat, usually recommends the Cannon 80d, he tried Sony cameras but they did not have view screens that flip to view like Cannon.

My case, the first  time out I want something a little less than the $1200 or higher sticker price of a Cannon 80D. Nikon has a nice inexpensive camera that takes video called Nikon Coolpix S7000 at about $250.

Its not a 20 mega-pixel like the other expensive cameras but in comparison low end androids are at 5 mp and high-end androids are at 10mp. Thus, 16 mp wil be fine for now as I practice youttube vlogging.

The Mobile Canvas

The benefit of building some design UIKits based on html5, js, and css for desktop and mobile is that if I use the mobile device as my canvas the limitations serve to allow me to focus on the pedagogical of theory of Material Design.

In doing so,I can than understand why header images in mobile material design apps ia bad idea and why parallax image containers in material design CSS frameworks should be banned.

UI Kit Products

Obviously, the first set of UI kit products is for html/css/js and in fact Material Design based. Should be interesting to see which ones take off.

At the moment using two frameworks, Materialize and Bootstrap as I have not figured out how to incorporate or integrate 3rd party stuff with Google's successor to MaterialDesignLite.
