Best trains of 2018 : A review of my channel’s progress and videos over the year

This is my best of 2018 review, I have not done one of these since 2015! A lot has changed over the year, I started the year using 2-3 Panasonic HC-V750 camcorders. In March I added a DJI Mavic Air drone to the mix. Then one by one the Panasonic’s failed. They were nearly 3 years old now. I upgraded to a HC-VX981 but that spent a short time as my primary camcorder. I added a Panasonic HC-X1 to switch to 4K at 60P and Sennheiser microphone.
