The JCH show: Tokyo Used Camera Fair
When I make a video, it is like complex Lego set…It takes me bloody ages, but I get there in the end and most of the pieces are there. In the latest instalment of the JCH show, our intrepid reporter takes you on a tour of the most recent used camera fair in Tokyo.

This one took a while to get up because editing it took ages, and there is only so much polish that can be added. In my defence I had been up since 4am queuing up outside the event, so I was not on top form.

Come and join my Youtube channel!

Please tell me what you want to see more of in the comments. I really want to make these fun and informative for all of you.
I have a couple of cracking videos coming soon. Honest, they will be done before the end of the summer….

    Cool video, I may need a cold shower after seeing all those cameras.

    Bring the levels down a bit on the background music, and up the levels on your mic, not always easy hearing you speak. Otherwise you’re good!

    Great video – thanks for transporting me to Tokyo for a few minutes!

    There’s a sudden volume increase around 5:04. I prefer the higher volume after this point – the initial volume was too low to hear clearly using my laptop’s built in speaker, although fine on external speakers.

    I agree with Scott, both this episode and episode 2 had backing tracks under the speaking which were distracting at best. You’ve got a good voice for voice-overs and interviews Bellamy and you should let it stand on it’s own merit without too much backing, you sound personable and calm, without being dull or monotone. The backing tracks are too fast, too dominant, they don’t fit well with your speech patterns. I rewatch the interview Eric Kim did with you in your office sometimes for the soothing voice that’s saying something interesting. Cool, calm, and collected!

    Aside from that you’re doing a good job with the videos so far, each episode has been enjoyable and I’m looking forward to seeing more.

    I thought you did a great job. I actually loved the music–It gave me a sense of “wandering” and overcame the background hubbub and chatter.

    (BTW: Great shirt!!)

    Good work, enjoyed that quick tour.

    Are any of the stall holders English speakers? A wee interview would be interesting. A perspective from the other side of the display cabinet, so to speak.

      There are some, but they are rather camera shy. I have been trying to convince some of them to speak for ages, but it is a difficult process.

    The music has to go, the mic keeps cutting in and out and the camerawork and lens is diabolical. That said, I am really grateful for the opportunities to see all those cameras.
