Everybody's changing up for variety¹s sake. &nbsp;The super slo-mo I was doing was fun because it was such a challenge, but I think I’ll welcome the change ­ because there will be a lot less stress with this assignment. With the former, I frankly cringed each time the replays began rolling, as that’s when the focus failures were accentuated. &nbsp;90% of the time, mine worked.
