The quality is amazing. Second the ‘What camera did you use?’ I agree. It’s more like the Flash encoder they use makes the difference. Too bad the software is not available as a client, but as server side script upgrade via wordpress.com. As for the email client, I choose Windows Live Mail, it works like a charm. Thanks! The video was shot on twin 5D Mark IIs Thanks Michael. Also, count me as a vote for GMail. 😉 I use every Google service daily. Nice job with the shallow depth of field – very cool look Nice video – Looks like you used a Nikon SLR with video capabilities? Like a D90, etc.. If you’re going to do a question/answer format, this is the way to do it. Short, to the point, personal – very well done. I am a RoundCube fan myself, because of it’s overall simplicity. Gmail is the way to go! 😀 Wow that’s some nice bokeh and video work. and Thunderbird has an easier search feature than Outlook…that was my biggest gripe when having to switch mail clients. Great idea. Simplicity and brevity. I await the next. Agree about Thunderbird for personal use, but for work Lotus Notes 8.5.1 for the Mac is incredible. I always use Gmail and it also can be set in different ways, even with pc’s personal Outlook Express if one desired so. Amazing looking video quality. ta Great video. Like what Chris mentioned, it was short, to the point and personal. Btw, my email client of choice is Thunderbird. I’ve been using it for about 6 years now and I use it to access my Gmail account. 😀 “Video using VideoPress and filmed/edited by Michael Pick.” Yes, the video kicks ace and so does VideoPress. Check out that link at the top of the vid. I’ve tried using Thunderbird a few times, but I guess I’m just not used to it. The evil I know is Gmail and I’ve fallen in love with the idea of everything being in the “cloud”. I’ve also set up a few of my domains through Google apps which I love. Has anyone tried zoho? Anyway, love the video. Can you ask Michael what kind of camera he is using? It looks great. Thanks Matt & Michael. We need more videos like these. All about open source. However, your closing comments about being able to use IMAP and your own domain. This has been possible with Google Apps for years. Also, if you use Gmail it also looks the exact sme on both clients as it’s in the browser. The best solution is to run IMAP on Google Apps (very easy, and process automated completely if you host with DreamHost). Then you can IMAP into Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, etc. If you just use thunderbird, and wish to check your mail remotely, (not on your own computer), then you are stuck with the default usually horrible web host providers email web based client. So you may wish to clarify your title as Which Desktop Email Client as not to confuse you readers. Great video techniques though. Thanks for sharing the Thunderbird add-on, I’ve been using Thunderbird since the beginning and never knew of it! Love it! thanks for the gravatar in thunderbird trick! just installed it the add-on. Matt, have you tried mutt? 🙂 That is THE most flexible and configurable mail client I ever came across. And it’s open source software too. Check out Postbox, it’s really nice Thanks for answering my question. I use a combination of Gmail and Thunderbird and have been pretty happy overall. I was used to Outlook and some of its features are really useful for work but it just consumes too much memory, so I decided to move all my accounts to Gmail. I have to say that I am happier than with Outlook but still there are a few things that could be better. Looking forward to try thunderbird. Thunderbird is my favorite too. Well it’s the only one that’s good for Linux anyway :). I keep trying to use Evolution but I can’t get used to it and it doesn’t have the cool features and extensions. Thanks for the message faces extension. Wait wait wait… if you’d like for all software you use to be open source, why are you sitting on that couch with a macbook in your lap? Are you running GNU/Linux on it? That’s not my MacBook, but aside you are correct that I’m not fully OS in my OS yet. I try to switch to Linux (lately Ubuntu) about once a year and every year it gets closer. My comment below was a reply to Job and Matt. I guess I goofed when hitting reply. 🙂 Awesome! Though, remember that there’s more than Ubuntu around – Ubuntu uses the GNOME desktop, you should try a KDE desktop too and see if it suits you better. (Like Kubuntu.) I wouldn’t use Linux as a desktop OS just for the sake of using something Open Source. Depending on your needs, something like Ubuntu could be fine (though I’d personally use CentOS), but if you have more particular desktop application needs for your computer, Linux may not suffice quite yet with the available software. I’ve just bought a Canon 5D mark II as well! I’m a wedding photographer so need something that is high quality and this baby rocks – for stills anyway. And you can do excellent video as well – as seen here! Comments are closed.
