Robin Forte-Lincke thanked everyone for signing the card we sent to her mother. She reported that we should know that zooming when filming is very taxing on the battery. So you should always carry a second charged battery just in case you need to change it. Regarding forgetting to push a button, she recommends starting your camera before the action starts. You can always edit out that part. You can see live SBTV3 by going to SBTV3.org on your computer or on your phone. Once on that site, click on the circle with the 3 on it. The live streaming will come right up.
