Totally enjoying EEV YouTube Blogs
« on: December 22, 2014, 08:09:11 am »
Just a letter to Dave and the staff...I discovered EEV videos last week on YouTube on my 55 inch flat screen and I must have viewed at least 30 so far. I haven't seen any I didn't enjoy, and I have learned a fantastic amount of information from each blog I've viewed. Much information was a great refresher for me and much also was new to me as I am now retired after 40 years of servicing and repair of equipment. The video quality of the more recent ones is fantastic and even the most detailed schematic diagrams are perfectly reproduced in HD even on freeze frame. Bravo to Dave on his selection of the current camera and editing he is using!  I am recuperating from an illness and it has been a pleasure to watch one blog after another. My experience in Electronics ranges from microwave communications in the military, test equipment repair and calibration, television repair in the field and on bench, and most recently production equipment repair in wafer fabs. The video on the Yamaha stereo receiver from a dumpster dive and monitor repairs with bad caps was especially familiar. Keep diving, Dave!  Mailbag is always interesting too. The video on the Sydney TV transmitter was a real treat as I always wanted to see one up close. I always wanted to have a small lab of my own to tinker, breadboard and experiment. Now that I am retired I have the time to do that without a supervisor peering over me to complain that I am working too slow to do repairs. I took the first step and bought a Tektronix 485 analog scope that I always wanted at my last job, from Ebay at a good price. I have much of the other lab equipment already that I accumulated over the years. I am considering the build of the EEV variable current and voltage supply next.  I might even consider repair of vintage radios someday....At my age _I_ am also considered vintage as well as being an antique!

Thanks, glad you enjoy it.
The older videos aren't nearly as high quality as the newest ones, just be warned!
I'll let my staff know as well - me, myself, and I  ;D

Thanks for giving me a tip how to put in use my 50 inch Sony TV, which was collecting dust. Indeed the quality of EE videos are very good, looks beautiful on the TV screen.

It was never about the quality, it's the "off the cuff" review style that attracts people, if they want well though out and much more knowledgeable videos, they should be watching the brilliant Signal Path instead.

I think Dave was referring to Video Quality.

Yes, video quality.
Framing, lighting, angles, colour, depth of field, compression, detail, number of shots etc
All have drastically improved since the early days.
I'd like to think that I am one of the best electronics blogs in this respect, and take the extra steps to deliver better footage many others don't.
