Camera Field Monitor,5.5″ 4K Input with 3500mAh Rechargeable Li-ion Battery 1920×1080 HDMI Screen Camera Field Monitor for DSLR Camera/Camcorder
Many photographers have a hard time looking at the small LCD screen on their cameras. For years I have used an external screen for films, but having this luxury came with a few issues. The biggest problem for me, is the large battery that most of these monitors come with. Some of them use the canon LP-E6 battery, which is small but is still too much weight on my camera.
I finally decided to give myself a gift and I did a search on Amazon for “USB powered field Monitors”. I found dozens of LCD screens, but most of them were too large or way too expensive. After scrolling through so many I found this monitor. It fit all off the requirements I desired and I purchased it immediately. I will put the link and specs below for people who are interested.
Today I did a review of the Western Digital P10 4TB hard drive. I always drop these things, and sometimes I step on them. This time I went to Best Buy to find a new external USB hard drive that can stand strong against my clumsiness. So far so good, I like it. It feels amazing, and I can throw this in my camera bag without worry.
Here are some photos I took in New Orleans. I forgot to add them with the others. My fiancé also took a few photos, I will post those at the bottom. She did pretty good. She is finally starting to trust her camera. Photography is very frustrating when you can’t grab that perfect picture when you want it. You have to figure out which lenses are the best for the look you are trying to capture, and when is the best time of day to shoot. There are so many things that can affect the photos you create. I like to capture people smiling. I like to see them happy. I don’t really need a weird pose, just be normal. It doesn’t even have to be the best image quality, some people may disagree but I like the memories and if it comes out crazy looking who cares. Do what makes you happy.
The first 3 days of my trip to New Orleans I spent taking as many photos as I could. People walked up to me asking for a photo and I am so grateful for that. It made my job easy. My camera bag is full of lenses, but I used these 3 lenses the most. Today I used the Canon 50mm F1.8, Canon 10-22mm, Canon 70-300mm
Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers. Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world’s first true “penitentiary,” a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of prisoners. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including bank robber “Slick Willie” Sutton and Al Capone. I took a bunch of photos with my Canon 80D and Sony a6000. I took 5 lenses with me, thats all that could fit in my small camera bag. This was place spooky and cold. I got some good shots, but I would’ve loved to take video. They didn’t want anybody taking videos at all, that was a bummer. We spent about 3 hours there. There is an audio self guided tour you can take for $14. The story of the prison even crazier than the photos. If you want something to do any day during the week come check out Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia. They are open from 10am – 5pm everyday. I really enjoyed my time here.
I hope you enjoy these small videos I share on this site. Each one of them helped me fine tune my camera skills so that I can compete with the professionals out there who make the big bucks lol. These quick tutorials will expand your knowledge of camera angles, grid lines, auto focus points and things most people never think about in filmmaking online. It’s not so simple, you have to learn all of these small things to create your own style and master everybody else’s. Every photographer or filmmaker has their own blueprint on how they film, but the basic steps in this video are used by almost everyone. save this video and take notes!!!
My first time using the DJI Osmo camera was so much fun. I will say that this camera is very delicate, but it performs so well. You can get the best still shots and capture amazing sharp video footage while moving. The Oslo takes panorama shots, you can use it as a selfie stick, but what I like the most is the slow motion video. Below are some Tips and Specs on the OSMO and what you can expect when you buy one.
Make sure you buy extra batteries. The batterie does not last that long. You can get about 45min to an hour per battery. If you are not using it, turn it off to save juice.
Buy a UV lens adapter. This will allow you to film in the sun without having to adjust too many settings.
If you combine this camera with other things in a bag, make sure it is secure and it doesn’t bang around too much. This camera can be knocked out of wack from anything so just be careful and gentle.
I hope you get a chance to try this camera, it is awesome!!! RATING TIME
If you travel, this is a great bag for your camera equipment. You can carry about 11 lenses and your camera. It comes with a laptop case that fits inside the bag, when I travel I need a carry on bag with wheels just to get in and out of the airport. Carrying all of my lenses on my back gets heavy so the wheels help out so much. The inside lens compartments can be taken out of the bag as its own case that zips up. You can even take it out and use it in other bags. Its a great item to get, its about $90 on amazon.
