These Things Had To Be Fixed

There were other small things to be fixed before i start to work on YouTube projects. here i upload a list of what they were:

1.HDMI Repeater For Camera-2

Camera 2 is placed usually near the working bench on my left side, it is a bit far from Testing Monitors, i found out during filming a project, the signal transfer from camera to the monitor is slower than camera -1 which is located near the monitors on top of the working bench at the right side. to solve this problem i went on eBay and ordered some HDMI repeaters, from 5 HDMI repeaters i have ordered only one of them worked the rest just stayed in my junk box. I knew this will happen cause that is eBay, that is why i needed one but ordered 5 pieces from different sellers, different locations and brands. now i have mounted the HDMI repeater on top of my bench and works very well. it needs a 5V DC adapter that is what i needed to boost the signal. the buffering types that work without external current, just couldn't convince me.

2.Off-Screen Pockets For HDMI & Other Cables

regardless of a huge box of wires and cables that i have collected with-in 10 years of working with electronic stuff, i have found out that some wires and cables would be in need quickly for a short time then it should be put back to the box until the next need. putting them back to the main  cable box which is located under the working bench is a pain and that is too heavy. so i have to think of some other ideas. i came up with these pockets that are actually made for kitchen. i got them from one dollar store. and 2 more small boxes i made out of wood. so now i can manage all my cables that i need temporary like HDMI and power adapters from camers,USBs and so on. otherwise they will be always on the floor and make a mess, meanwhile leaving HDMI cables on the floor is not safe, they are very fragile and can break down quickly,if one single signal wire of the HDMI cable gets damage inside, the entire signal would be interrupted and tv would say "sorry bro, no signal"

3.Electret Condenser Stereo Microphone

tired of searching music on youtube music data-base none is usually convincing enough to be used for a project. meanwhile tired of buying music each for $40 from other sites that claim they are royalty free but after uploading on youtube, youtube would often pull my leg.
so i have just decided to leave everything natural, the sound of the project all and everything on the video let it be as it is, no need for music, except for some videos that really do not need narration.
so for this purpose i had to have a mic for recording sound of the project while making. yes camera has got built-in microphones but not very convincing cause they don't have wind-screen and capture many noises caused by the air flow inside the working room. so i made this little wind-screen box and put an electret condenser mic inside it and it works very well, yes those net and the sponges are for the kitchen and i got them from one dollar store.

4.Soft Light LED Box on Top of Working Bench

The main LED Soft Light Box i made is mounted on top, near the ceiling so it is usually off-screen. based on previous experiments with video making, i found out that showing a small light source on-screen looks cool meanwhile it responds the question if audience ask where the light come from for lighting this subject? therefore i let a small light box containing 2 LEDs E26, each 12Watts, on top of working bench. while you will see these pictures they are still under construction, later i will add a diffuser under the box to turn it from hard to soft light.
