1/19/18 I do'd it!
Fixed my GoPro Black with a new LCD screen that
works. Today's pic shows a fully functioning
cam with the burnt out screen to the left.
Consider I got lucky with the help of some YouTube
instructional videos to bring this action cam back
to life. Took a chance and bought a new screen
for 20 bucks in hopes it would work. Issue was
a micro ribbon cable that's 1/4" wide with a bunch
of wire feeds. Installing this micro mini
cable was more luck than skill.
Marked this cam by coloring the "o" red with a Magic
Marker. This was to separate it from the other
GoPros in use ...in case the screen goes out again.
1/18/18 Let's talk
fishing today. The big shocker in 2017 was
Manistee & Ludington, MI had a decent fishery for
Spring Kings in later April thru mid May. This
came out of left field. Totally, unexpected,
but very welcomed.
spring King Salmon
To be able to catch MI's bad boy King Salmon this
early in the season was a reel-joy after winter's
long layup. Let's hope this happens again this
1/17/18 Making the
best quality video to share with you has it's
challenges. Especially, if you're on a budget like me.
Coming up with an end product that is at least
tolerable means a lot of time in post production:
editing and cutting scenes. Plus, you're
limited by what the equipment is capable of ...at
the best bang for the buck.
LCD control screen on my GoPro burnt out. In
the process of DIY the repair. Touchy best
describes opening up the case and removing the micro
ribbon cable to the screen. Replacement screen
was under 20 bucks to try to salvage this cam.
If it works when I'm done? ...it will surprise me.
Working on upgrading to an external USB power source
for the always on GoPro hardtop cam. Not
running out of battery means no fuss, no muss.
There's a bunch of decent action cams.
Aftermarket accessories for GoPro are countless.
I use a GoPro 3 Black Edition, once a $400 bite when
new about 4-5 years ago. Now on eBay? ...this
very cam can be purchased for less than a 100 bucks.
1/16/18 It's easy for me
to keep focus on our Great Lakes fishery. I
work with fishing tackle and a light form of
journalism every day and stay of point.
While in post production/editing of soon to debut
videos from 2017, it's a must to have a quality
sound track. Hearing exactly what's going on,
at the time, as it happens, without playing things
up for the camera separates my YouTube vids from the
Now is the time of the year to test out new audio
equipment, because there's time to up this part of
my movies. The last 2 days I've watched
countless YouTube videos and searched Amazon high
and low for better sound equipment.

Today's featured photo show the wide variety of
action cam mics I've tried over about the last 10
years. None of these mics are expensive, most are in
the 5 to 20 buck range. Only the large Azden
mic was above 50 bucks.
To be continued tomorrow......
