Does A Cheap DSLR Remote Do The Job?

Review of the inexpensive DSLR Intervalometer from Jintu.

I was pleasantly surprised at this little guy. An official Remote Trigger from any of the main manufacturers can set you back more than a cheap lens would. It’s time to see if a 3rd Party equivalent does the job.

 

Spoiler Alert: It does…and does it extremely well.

 

 

I was not paid for this review. This product was sent to me free of charge for my honest review.

Just How Good Is The Canon 55-200MM IS STM At Video?

The example footage was filmed on the Canon 70D with the 55-200mm IS STM Lens. Fixed to a Manfrotto 701HDV Fluid Head. Although the wind didn’t exactly allow for smooth panning with the fluid head, it did show off the IS in the lens.

The camera, lens and fluid head were all purchase at full retail price by us and no discount or payment was offered or requested for this account.

If you’re looking for a cheap alternative to a GoPro, this could be the camera you’re looking for. It shoots 1080 video @ 30fps.

I was sent this product direct from Onepaa in return for an honest review, which I feel I have given. No monetary payment was offered, nor requested.

Is JUST the SJCam M20 good enough for your trip?

SJCAM’s M20 – An Action Cam that packs a real punch!
I was so impressed that this little camera captured everything I wanted it to on our recent trip to Mexico. Low-light performance, as I’ve said in the video, wasn’t the greatest but nor is any action camera I’ve ever used. The sensors are so small, it’s almost ludicrous to imagine that it could. See below for links to all the gear discussed in this video and also all my gear I use in the video.

Pictures from the run up to D-Day 70 from on board Brittany Ferries

Here are just a small selection of photographs from Brittany Ferries’ Normandie taken over the past few days sailing in and out of Ouistream, Caen. Many pictures have been shared in the media of the onboard activities, however the berthing position for the Normandie and the Mont St. Michel afford a very privileged vantage point. See below for some pictures along with a few other sights from the past week.

Setup & Technique Tips for Vloggers

So I’ve been toying with the idea for a few months of vlogging. As a result I’ve done a lot of research of setting up and the technical side behind it. All the information was out there but not necessarily all together. A great idea for a video I mused. So here’s what I came up with. Hopefully you’ll find it interesting.
