No worries. Maestro has been right on target for me and has talked me down off the high priced ledge a couple of times. His advice has been quite tempered and patient. I understood where he was going with the "wouldn't it be nice" suggestion.
I may have given the impression that I was not doing Pro-level video work and technically that is correct. But I have done it in the past at a corporate level and I'm getting my personal system built up for the challenge. I have put in 5 grand, cutting corners as well as I can, and that's just camera and software. So don't worry, he's targeting my needs fairly closely.
