Unboxing | Timbrecod 5.5in 4K LCD Field Monitor | Amazon

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.

Unboxing | Western Digital WD-P10 4TB hard drive

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.


In this series I created some graphic animations to show what I’ve learned about spirituality and faith over the past couple of years of my life. I wanted to use my gifts for God, and show my appreciation by spreading good information on how to live righteously. I am not perfect, and I am not here to preach to others. These videos are here to spread love and to invite others to join me in this walk of faith. We see so much bad and evil things everyday online, I thought this would be a good way to bring happiness to others and share the gift of love to the world. I’m always looking for help with the speeches, so if anyone is interested feel free to contact me. Thank you for watching.

img_1303-2This is the Commlite mount adapter, it allows you to put Canon lenses on Sony cameras and use the auto focus feature. I love it, I used it yesterday and it worked so well. The auto focus is not as fast as I would like it to be, but for the price its not that bad. I tested a few lenses on it. The Sony camera I use is the Sony a6000, a great mirrorless camera. I particularly like the Canon 50mm lens with the a6000, they work well together. For photos this works great, but for film and video it is not a great combination. If you are OK with using manual focus then you can get excellent results. I have seen some more expensive converters on amazon about 3 times the price of this one. In my personal opinion, the converter I buy shouldn’t be worth more than the lens itself. I think for more professional photographers this would be an option, but if you’re just a beginner save the money and go with this one.

(Canon 10-22mm, 10-18mm, 24mm & the 50mm f1.8)

A few weeks earlier I purchased another converter for $14, but that was a piece of garbage. Be cheap, but don’t be too cheap haha. This lens didn’t have autofocus, it basically just connected my lenses to the camera and nothing else. I couldn’t even manual focus. With my next purchase, I can say I found what I was looking for with the Comix Mount.

Below are photos of my a6000 with a Canon 10-22mm lens connected to it using the Comix lens converter.

My rating for this purchase:

Product photography: DIY setup

AF31AD97-B1F6-47F1-B5FB-32CBC11D09D7I often wondered how people create the photos for all of these product reviews online and on YouTube. I saw a few kits on amazon that looked cool, but I’m sick of always having to spend a bunch of money to do small things that I can create myself. Here is what I did.


This is my cheap DIY product photography setup

1. Buy 2 large black and white pieces of cardboard paper from the local dollar store.
2. Also Get some cheap clamps or clothes pins while you’re in the store.
3. Get some string and scotch tape
4. Aluminum foil (to reflect the light)
5. Use any small lamp or lighting you have in the house.
6. Use a TV table or plastic folding table

Put them all together and this is all you need to get yourself started. Here are some of the photos I took with my DIY setup.
