Typewriter Video Series, Episode 12
Post-Script: This blog post was typed out in one pass, without any first-drafting, as I do some of my articles. This little Brother-made Webster XL-747 typewriter makes for a great "lap typer," a category of typewriter that perhaps deserves its own future episode of the video series. It does require noticeably more finger force to get a dark imprint, as compared to those Swiss-made Hermes machines that I bragged about in the last article; but then I noticed that sitting in my low-slung patio chair, in a slightly reclined position with this small machine on my lap, offered me a better wrist position with which to attach the keys, making it suddenly easier to get the force required for a dark imprint. So perhaps the "low-rider" is a sub-category of lap typers.
My Panasonic Lumix G5, which I use on all these videos, is starting to have some issues with its flip-out LCD screen. This is a great feature to have on a camera intended to be used for self-made videos, since the flip-out screen enables you to see yourself while in front of the lens. But the screen hinge has been getting loose, and now there's some flaky issue happening with the picture in the LCD itself. Perhaps I see a replacement Lumix micro-4/3 camera in my future? My personal finance manager doesn't seem to be as thrilled about that idea as myself, however.
