In Topic: Is Tippmann A-5 A Good Starter Gun?

24 February 2015 - 08:50 AM

Yes, the Tippmann A-5 is a good starter gun! I've been using one for 10 years now, and still love it. If you like real steel shooting and are right handed, you will love the A-5. With the cyclone feed system, you don't need batteries at all, as you can fire as fast as you can and there will always be a paintball in the gun ready to go! The cyclone puts the hopper off the right side of the gun allowing you a sight line down  the top of the gun allowing for easier aiming even when you don't pull it all the way up to your standard shooting stance. 

 

It easily shoots +/-3fps with a few simple modifications (polishing the internals, and using high end o-rings). And with an Apex 2 barrel on it (set at 4 clicks) it shoots flat enough that you can use red dot scopes with it! 

 

 

With my MonsterSpin barrel on mine (Flatline plus Apex 2) I can shoot out to 125 feet away with a scope and hit what I am aiming at. (as long as I have good paint).

I was gonna start a thread, but this one seems more fitting for my latest video...

 


In Topic: Youtube rolls out 60fps and it looks amazing!

It is a very minor difference with most cameras. In video games there is a noticeable difference in movement.

 

But, I'm not that impressed. 1080 and 720 look similar enough as youtube compression ruins the "high end" look anyway... My rendered videos look WAY better in 1080 at home than they do once I upload them to youtube...

 

 

Silly that youtube is still only stereo. 

 

The next big thing is 4k. not 60fps. I have a 4k tv and it is SICK. It is like the first time you saw HD and were like, "whoa". 4k is like that. It honestly looks REAL. 

 

But, it will be a while until computers can edit 4k, as that is SO much data. People are gonna upgrade their camera gear, and find their edit systems can't handle the data streams!

60fps gives less lateral movement blur, as there is more data there. But, youtubes compression messes up quality anyway. Hopefully they have improved that with this upgrade. 

 

I just wish they would go to 5.1 surround sound, as stereo sound is weak in todays environment. I used to film all my games in 5.1 surround, and it was cool how you could place players based on hearing "where" they were by the audio track... But, only on my raw files in my theater, as once I uploaded it compressed it to just stereo audio.
