The Repairman - "Upgrades" [ ASMR ]

You need Flash player 8+ and JavaScript enabled to view this video.

The Repairman upgrades your optics as requested by Professor Clemmons', then performs routine diagnostics to check the health of your system.

In other words, my 2011 HD camcorder died Monday night (11/17) prior to this video. After spending all night until 2AM determining what I should replace it with, I decided it was time I performed a serious upgrade. I ended up acquiring the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 camera along with the Panasonic Lumix Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 OIS lens.

This video serves as a real test in a variety of ways. It's my first time filming with a DSLR and lens using manual focus and manual exposure for this length of time, as I needed to get acclimated to performing ASMR videos in front of it. I'm more than pleased with the results. The last time I owned a DSLR was the Canon 20D back in 2005. This is also a test of the camera and lens capabilities, including 4k (all footage except for the slow motion parts) and slow motion. GH4 native Slow Motion was made even slower in Post Production for certain parts like the match lighting. Again, they perform above expectations. The final video is rendered in 1080p, however, stay tuned for full 4k ASMR videos in the future. Expect some full length ASMR slow motion videos in the future.

Thanks for watching and for your support. I especially want to thank my Patrons, as you can clearly see the upgrade and investment in the new camera equipment is a vast improvement, and this is only the beginning of the kind of high quality you can expect to see going forward. I also wanted (ie. felt obligated) to show my Patrons that I'm not using their money to go on expensive cruises or making personal purchases, and that their generous contributions are going towards the improvement of this channel, even if that's not necessarily why they may be supporting me. This camera will only be used for YouTube videos and other video projects, just like all the other props and equipment that I purchase to use for my channel.

Tingle on,

What is ASMR?

ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and is the current (non-scientific) name given to the feeling characterized as a pleasurable tingling sensation felt in the head, scalp, back and other regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, and/or cognitive stimuli, such as crinkling bags, hand movements, whispering and personal attention.

My videos are not only meant to help induce ASMR or "tingles", but also help provide a relaxing, calming and soothing experience for the viewer while helping to relieve their anxiety relief, stress relief, insomnia relief, to help those suffering with PTSD or depression, to serve as a study aid and much more.
