Raser Kiyo Pro 修理で困っている


配信やビデオミーティングでカメラを毎回セットアップするのが面倒で、据え置き用にRazerのKiyo ProというWeb Camを購入。暗所性能や色のバランスが比較的良く、オートフォーカスが弱い以外は問題なく使用していた。
購入後三度ほどファームウェアのアップデートがあり、毎回オートフォーカスの改善が項目に挙がっていたので満を持してアップデートしようとしたが、うまくいかない。巷の書き込みを調べてみると、ファームウェアアップデートでKiyo Proが使用できなくなったという報告や、Razerのサポートへの批判なども出てきたが、Razerのシェアや利用環境の多様性を考えればそういう報告はあって当然だろうという程度に考えていた。






When Mitsuhiro comes back to overseas events?

July 30th Update:
I’m happy to announce that I’ll resume talking with multiple overseas events.
My life is not forever. After thinking about what I can and can only do now, I have decided to go wherever there are people who want to meet me as much as possible.

About Crowdfunding Campaign

I decided, Basically, I don’t work on the projects that is running as a crowdfunding campaign.

I’ve been getting inquiries to work on the projects that currently running on the crowdfunding campaigns.
As a professional artist, if the budget and conditions are fair, it’s just a job.
But the people running a crowdfunding campaign are not strictly obligated to refund if the project fails.
Pledging to a crowdfunding campaign is like purchasing a dream that could become a reality. Some of them end up remaining dreams.
Also, most people who had been contact me was use my name without agreement.

That’s the reason I decided I will not work for the cloud founding campaign.

Suppose I decide to join a crowdfunding project with people I trust, or run my own crowdfunding campaign. In this case, I will make an official announcement here or in the official store’s newsletter. Please note that even in this case, it only means that I judge the project to be worthwhile for us to venture together. It does not commit you to the success of the project itself.

Please don’t believe any new without my official announcement.

If you are the owner of the crowdfunding projects and seriously would like to have me, I’ll make another post about the screening process and conditions.

If you have a question about this post, please send it as a message from Ko-fi.

About canceling of my involvement in Final Redemption TCG

Maiden & Dragon

Hi all,

I appreciate your continued support.

Last week, the Final Redemption TCG, a Kickstarter campaign currently running, announced that I would be involved in it.

Unfortunately, due to internal issues within the project, we have agreed that I will leave it. I apologize to everyone who had been looking forward to it.

There is no possibility for the draft that was released to become a Card. However, I got permission to finish that draft, make a print of it. Many thanks to the project members who permitted me.

It may take a while, but please subscribe to my online store‘s newsletter if you are interested.

Thank you so much.
