Best by budget..

I’ve been out testing these two gems this morning.. the Action 3 is by far the best value action camera and the Akaso 7LE is the best entry level action camera ideally suited to a first camera for a youngster where the chances of ‘misplacing’ it are high.

As you might expect, the DJI Action 3 is offering astounding image quality and the broadest feature set that includes things like fast charging ! a first for this genre of camera. But wait, the 7LE is not a million miles away in features and for around £100 its frankly a very decent device that most general users would be pretty chuffed with. I’ll be posting a couple videos over the next few days that demonstrate the two in their own right.

The best budget ipad pen

I’ve been testing this for some time now and it’s a superb, budget alternative to the Apple Pencil.

I’ll be posting a review video very shortly.

Basically its a 3rd party alternative to the Apple Pencil.. it’s not got the same variable pressure sensitivity but otherwise it’s a brilliant and much cheaper (around £20) alternative.

Wow – 2018 already.. I have been quiet here.. but busy – LIGHTPAINTING

Well it’s a new year and I have a new resolution..  push out some good quality Video’s to help grow YouTube and then get this blog kept up to date.

These things take time and I guess just like you find.. it’s an increasingly rare commodity !

I have, however, been pretty busy with some new experiments.. this time in light painting..

The first was done using a torch with half a pingpong ball attached to the top to give a glow that’s visible from many angles.. btw – the message is aimed at you all 🙂

This was a 10 second exposure with the colour balance pushed right up.. light source was an iphone 6 flashlight being moved around quickly.. has a Terminator 2 feel to it.

This last one was shot on a Samsung S8 using pro mode and again 10 seconds..

The sparks came from me spinning some wirewool inside a metal whisk on a chain.. I lit the wirewool with a PP3 battery.. a lighter works equally well.

I will shortly post a how-to video on YouTube with some more great examples.

Happy new year !
