    Washing Your Car!

    After years of saying I'll buy a blow dryer, and never actually getting around to it, I've finally had the chance to give 1, or rather 3, a try! View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XQNYvI_yZ0 Do you guys use a blow dryer? If so, are you a home detailer or a pro? And if you do, does that...

    Washing Your Car!

    So at the weekend I decided to tackle my neighbour's alloy wheels on his 2007 Seat Ibiza! These wheels have probably never had a proper clean in their 12 years, let along a "wheels off" detail..... View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXnCEDKLmM0

    Have You Heard Of TobyDeals?

    Thinking of buying a Moza Air 2 from TobyDeals. Their price is almost £200 cheaper than anyone else. However, the reviews seem to be mixed. Mostly negative, but the positive ones just suggest the problem is due to a delay in shipping (from Hong Kong). Do I pay on credit card and take a chance...

    Trip to New York, questions!

    Not long since got back - ok, about 6 weeks ago. We go every couple of years. the last was our 4th trip there. You'll be fine - remember, no signal on the subway. Although TBH, you'll probably walk everywhere when possible. This last trip we used the subway more, but only because we was going...

    Create animated map showing car route?

    I've been messing around making various animations for our American Adventure later this year (which includes an awesome road trip)... Sounds like I've made exactly what you want. Do you have access to After Effects?

    using a 4k capable camera for videoing- what lens

    I guess it depends how close/far to/from the subject you are..... On my Lumix G7, I'd probably use my 25mm (which is more like 50mm on a FF). And that's simply due to the f1.7 aperture it has allowing me to blur the background (with the use of a ND filter)

    Tatton Park Stars and Stripes American Car Show

    Popped along to this yesterday, and glad I did. Hell, even SWMBO enjoyed it! here are a few pics, and as is standard from me, a video to soon follow (all pics quickly snapped on the phone) Shame it wasn't red SWMBO loves Mustangs, especially the new ones, and loves this colour...

    DSLR Motorised Slider

    Funny this pops up, yet again (last night and the night before) I have been looking at sliders. The price of motorised is way out of my league at the moment for what I'd use it, so looking for cheap manual operated ones.

    Peter McKinnon's B-Roll Challenge

    On the back of this, I decided to make a quick video over the weekend. Nothing amazing, just messing around with more "B-Roll" type stuff View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5lMLJ9pWxg

    Drone Video at Night

    Nice... Wasn't sure of that was doable even with a PfCO.... I'm considering the possibility of doing mine in a year or so, but TBH, I don't fly the drone enough for personal, let alone even considered business use. So for now, probably a waste of cash for me

    Drone Video at Night

    I for one hate drone police and fully believe common sense should be applied. I haven't watched the video yet, but legally you can only fly up to 30mins after sundown.... (and no more than 30mins before sunrise).... I'm sure it's a good video, but may get you the wrong kind of attention...

    Drone rules UK, do you need a licence [funny... (or maybe sad)]

    I'd love to know exactly how they intend on policing it tbh. And what about hobbiests? Flying model planes etc is OK, strap a camera to it and the world goes bat-s***-crazy As above, how will they police it? They struggle policing TV licences. Hell, people manage to drive without...

    USB Backup Device for SD Cards

    I kinda did. I think I was thinking ahead. For times when I may not have a laptop with me. TBH, I wouldn't be surprised if I near enough fill this drive during the month I'm out there. When I'm back, I'll probably look at other options where I don't need a laptop with me.

    Peter McKinnon's B-Roll Challenge

    I'm not sure if many of you watch Peter McKinnon (or even know who he is), but last week he set a challenge to go to a boring/uninteresting spot near where you live/work and make a 30 second B-Roll sequence from that single spot. Oh, and to only use 1 camera and 1 lens. Here's my attempt...

    USB Backup Device for SD Cards

    Via laptop and the software it comes with. So when we go away, I'll empty all SD cards to laptop, and then make a back up to the WD drive. I may even leave footage on the cards if I have enough of them. Although I doubt it as I filled 6 SD cards (4x 32gb & 2x 64gb) on our last trip to NYC for a...

    Cheapo "GoPro"

    Whenever I've had a GoPro mounted in strange places (car windows, bedroom windows, overlooking ledges etc), I always tie an old shoelace (I have several in my bag) around the camera and attache it somewhere else.

    USB Backup Device for SD Cards

    Unfortunately not.... I know I wanted one with SD card reader, but this will be just as good for what I realistically need I guess.

    USB Backup Device for SD Cards

    Decided to go with the WD Passport in the end. 2Tb for £70 on Amazon (maybe £69.95). I wanted a red one, but that was £15 more! Whilst looking, I spotted the blue one for a fiver less... Can't complain at £65 TBH. Then bought a case for it with the fiver I'd saved :LOL:

    Cheapo "GoPro"

    Finally finished my review of this camera against the Hero 4 Black. For £35, I managed to pick this up: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ultra-wide-98-Feet-30-meter-Display-Waterproof/dp/B06XWWYDLW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1528103876&sr=8-1&keywords=tecevo+4k View...

    Drone rules UK, do you need a licence [funny... (or maybe sad)]

    No licence needed. They keep threatening with registration, which I don't mind - as long as they only charge a fiver (the FAA in America charge $5 for registration). Speaking of which, I have just registered my drone with the FAA ready for this years trip. $5 and now "covered" for 3 years

    I Need Battery Wallet / Pouch / Storage

    Thanks. That looks like it'll do... Seeing as I only carry a couple of spare DSLR batteries, I'd have 2 unused pockets. Do you think a single pocket would hold 2 GoPro batteries?

    I Need Battery Wallet / Pouch / Storage

    Morning all..... Currently I have all my batteries (6x GoPro, 3x DSLR and a couple others) stored in small plastic ziplock bags. These get thrown into a pocket in my bag along with a SD card wallet, few GoPro accessories and other little bits and bobs. When used, they go back in my bag, in a...

    Camera Movement In Casey Neistat's Latest Vlog

    Cheapo "GoPro"

    Oh I totally agree on all points. TBH, the only use this camera will get is the odd B Roll... My "main" camera is my Lumix G7, followed by my Hero 4 Black, Mavic Pro and - if required - my Galaxy S7... This will just be for additional angles where I may drop in a 3-5 second clip
