    Anyone think we need another website for Samsung NX or Nikon 1? Join the hangout and let's discuss :biggrin:.

    I think we need those things, but I also have no mic or camera. Have fun in your chat.

    Just shut it down. Was fun! Maybe a good way to do the podcast...

    I couldn't join because my gmail is under my business name and they want a human name. I'll look into a way around that in the future. A hangout with caneraheads sounds fun.

    I need some cosmetic surgery before I expose myself on video - anyway at Euro "countryside" broadband speeds I can sound like a stuttering idiot, (no comments please Paul!)

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Sounds cool. I didn't see that you were doing it until you were almost done, so I didn't jump in. Maybe next time.

    How many people can it accommodate? I did a "Go To Meeting" thing recently and it works incredibly well up to about 4-5 people but after that it seemed beyond the technology and things bogged down really badly. I think they allow up to 25 total participants, but only six webcams - everyone else is audio only, although they can see the six webcams...

    Up to 10 people at a time. I've done that without any bogging down. For a podcast we'd probably want to limit it to 5 so we're not talking over one another.

    Sounds like it would have been fun. I've made very little use of my G+ account, and never tried the hangout feature.

    I'm testing out hangouts again now, trying to make sure the audio/video/etc will work for a podcast.

    Anyone who wants to join me, here is the link: https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/7acpjiuuh1a98mkatqacfemdko?hl=en

    If I'm not there and you see an empty room, means I had to go help put the kids to bed and will be back soon enough.
