This weekend Lester Holt and Jake Tapper were honored by RTDNA for their excellence in journalism. They received the awards at the Excellence in Journalism Conference held in Anaheim. I took the opportunity to try out my new MEVO camera.
It was rough!
I tested my camera multiple times before the event started. No problems… then the event started. There were problems!
The camera connected to my smartphone without an issue, but when I went to begin my live stream it presented an error message: “camera cannot connect to WiFi”. If you know anything about this camera, it has to be connected to the Wi-Fi in order to be connected to a smart phone. So, I was left fumbling, trying to figure out how I could make it work. Meantime the event got underway and was not waiting for me to figure out what was wrong with my camera.
I decided to forgo live streaming, and instead just recording to the memory card in the camera. As you can tell in the video I miss the intro to Lester full receiving his award.
Stay tuned for more on the MEVO Camera.
