For you retro-tech fans, this is pretty basic stuff for most people here, but some of the younger cinematographers might find this interesting.

I feel like this guy stretched 2 minutes of content into a 10 minute video.

Well, I did say most people here would probably already know what this guy had to say.  I still found it interesting in an academic sort of way.  I'm not a big Back to the Future fan, but I liked having the details pointed out.

I'm not critiquing the message, just the style of delivery.

It looks suspiciously like the technology Sony used for their first Digital audio recorders, although those mostly used U-Matic tapes.

I know right? Only the Sony tech worked very well and this computer tech, I can't imagine it working very well.

That's interesting.  I didn't know that.
