Video Diary: Cigar Expo 2011 – Day 1 (Walt)

Famous Smoke Shop - Sign - 1

One day, a few days prior to leaving for the Famous Cigar Expo 2011, I was messing around with my Flip Camera when I had an idea. Wouldn’t it be cool if I used the camera to create a video diary of significant cigar events, like Cigar Expo?

I could carry the video camera around in my pocket, then whip it out and record some random video footage. Would I capture something remarkably interesting or would it be tremendously boring? Either way, I thought it was worth a shot and asked Mike to participate as well (he had his own pocket video camera).

I had a lot of fun with the recordings and thought they were worth sharing. Please keep in mind that there really isn’t much value in this video, aside from some entertainment. I have event footage (basically me walking around with my camcorder) that will be posted later to give you a better look at the event itself.

  1. Walt, these videos that you have been making lately are what the SR needs! I like the non-standard cigar vids like your humidor diving and these little flip cam vids are cool too! keep’em coming! I also like how you were trying to focus in on the beer girl’s ass, you horn dog! haha!

    1. Yeah, I should have been using my HD Camcorder, it has far better zoom capabilities….. LOL

      I’m glad you like these more laid back videos. They are a lot easier to manage and it keeps the family happy when I’m not editing into the twilight hours

  2. Very interesting video, can’t wait to see the rest of the series. Hope Mike is actually doing this as well.

  3. Good stuff guys, I haven’t been to Famous Smoke Shop in a couple years. I’m going to have to check out the new place sometime.

    1. Adam,
      The two stores are night and day. The new location is gigantic. I have some video of me walking around the store that I’m going to try and have posted this weekend.

  4. I believe this marks Walt’s 3rd curse word in Stogie Review history. I did enjoy the footage and wonder if Mike has his own Cigar Fest diary.

    1. BrianS,
      I’d have to watch the video again for a count on cigars, but for a big event like this I would bet my total was on the low end, if you average out what everyone in attendance was smoking. I tend to smoke less frequently so that I can easily operate my camera(s).

      A lot of smoking was back at my first IPCPR convention. I smoked in excess of 15 cigars on day one (as did Brian and Jerry) of the week long event. We all learned our lesson that year.

  5. The video footage was a home run. Very fresh and interesting. I really wanted to make it out there this year but couldn’t pull it off. The video made me feel like I was there!
