You might be one of that half-a-million viewers who has found me on YouTube as Trued1, could be a pleasant change after having seen Tim´s BMW posting.
YouTube is something of the best of internet. So easy to upload movies and clips and instant the whole world can see it. I have been uploading mostly Saab related movies for the last 5 years now. A few weeks ago I passed the half million viewer marker. For me it feels goofd to have pleased, so many Saab fans around the world. There has been movies of the struggle of building historic 99 Turbo Rally cars, one of then that Vladimir Antonov drove in The rally to the midnight sun. Other movies has been interviews with notable Saab personalities, guided tours of the Saab Car Museum as well as the Swedish AirForce Museum in Linköping. Tests of Saabs, various Saab meetings and conventions. Well just about anything involving Saab and the culture surrounding it.
The mostly viewed clip is when I pass a Saab 9-5 NG Police car (one of the test cars that Saab/ANA Trollhättan built for the National Police Board RPS). It is not one of the most technical advanced movies I have shot but it is unique. It was filmed from inside a Volvo C70 Convertible, yes You read it right, but I just drove it down to Kungälv south of Trollhättan to trade it in for the guy who bought my TurboX. I then traded in his Volvo for a 9-5NG AERO 2010 that used to be owned by Saab Automobile.
Other well viewed clips is various how-to-do stuff and products like the electrical harness providing MP3 connectivity to older Saab Stereo Systems. That boosted the sales for that company I can tell. Videos have great impact.
In the sequence above from SONY Corporation make sure to adjust the resolution to MAX to see what the future looks like in terms if resolution and definition
SaabUnited can now through me and the cameras I have take on virtually any advanced movie production. Not only professional SONY 24megapixel SLT cameras but also a handful of GoPro and the new Garmin Virb Elite HD with great GPS features. Next step is of course 4K and so far I can do 2160p with my Sony Z2. Hopefully there will be a full out 4K camera system in the near future if the economy allows. Everything for our international audience. 4K is possible to watch on YouTube of You have a computer screen that can show it. I was surprised that my iMac 27″ screens from 2009 can handle 4K. Anyone willing to support my 4K efforts at SaabsUnited are welcome. We have an obligation at SaabsUnited to document not only in writing and in news postings but just as well filming and interviewing significant events, people, cars etc. We at SU Crew has talked about a BIG project documenting Saabs history with modern technologies. We will most probably need support from our readers/viewers, but more on that later.
