  1. Spec work is overrated for a number of reasons. Getting the "client" to actually hire you for paid work after you volunteered to work for free is oftentimes impossible. They will almost always see the value in someone that works for wages rather than someone that willingly works for free. It's a psychological thing, you know, the expensive thing must always be better and the free thing must be substandard.

    As an example, when I was a bit younger I tried an experiment. I was a web designer and ran into a guy at a store that was trying to sell some walkie talkies, which I needed for an upcoming shoot. He asked what I did and I told him I was a site designer and photographer. He asked me what I charged for web work and I quoted him a really high hourly price (I had enough work already and he seemed a bit high maintenance). He laughed at the fee and told me he could get an entire site designed in Malaysia for $50. I agreed that was a great price and told him I was really slammed with work and couldn't accept any additional clients at the moment. The look on his face changed dramatically and he rapidly deployed his wallet to hand me a business card, telling me to call him when I was freed up enough to work with him.

    On the flip, I've also stumbled on some projects that I really thought would be fun and offered my services for free. For the most part, I was never treated as a valued contributor because there was no perceived monetary "value" in my work. The few that accepted my offer loved what I did but never turned around to offer me a paid position or project.

    Spec work by definition is done to get you in the door to earn more than just recognition unless you can live on applause. Your offer of a contest for a logo design wouldn't really fall into spec work for a few simple reasons. Once you have the logo of choice you wouldn't need that person's work anymore eliminating the "foot in the door" mention. Also, I find it hard to believe that you would run a blurb in your description or a tag in your videos promoting the designer of your logo past the time that you announced the winner. I'm definitely not judging your character here. You seem like a decent guy, but spec work is oftentimes only "offered" in misguided ways by people that need the valuable resource that is the fruit of the "free" labor or intellectual work of another. Had you mentioned that you wanted to give away the Osmo to the winner of a "help me with a new logo" contest, I'm sure that would have been accepted in a much better way and would not have triggered the trolls.

    Finally, the review, once you settled into it was great and has helpe me make the decision to buy an Osmo for my 11 Pro Max. It's just a little long-winded (you know, like my comment is…. LOL).

  2. It was a good video until he had to ruin it with the design 'contest'. "iT's LiKe a mOvIe cOnTeSt, iT's mOtIvAtIoN". No dude, it's not "like a movie competition" when you want an end product to promote your business. It's more like if someone 'challenged' you to create a free commercial for them…
    People trying to get free work by disguising it as 'competition' are despicable and I'm surprised to see that rotten attitude from someone in a creative field.

  3. I was skeptical of the convenience of smartphone gimbals because I thought you had to spend time to do the initial balancing of the phone. But I didn't see you do that step, so I'm unclear now.

  4. So, 2:37 minutes of total meaningless BS drivel before he even gets to the subject of the title. I stopped watching because the guy's a moron.

  5. Do you have the iPhone 11 Pro MAX or just the 11 pro? Because i was told that the DJI won’t work with the 11 Pro Max with the Moment Lens attached, due to the weight. I really want to order the DJI and the Moment Lenses but I’m not sure if it will balance and be compatible. THANKS

  6. It should be useful if the DJI Osmo Mobile 3 has the 360 degree rotation for panorama photography
