November 27, 2019 Freewell Vari-ND Filters Gallery

I’ve just spend some time with an impressive set of Variable Neutral Density filters from Freewell.  This is the second time I’ve reviewed their products, and I’ve been pleasantly impressed both times by the innovation and quality of the products along with the reasonable pricing structure.  In this c [Read more...]

August 5, 2019 Godox AD200 Pro Review

Godox has developed a strong following for their lighting products due to a winning combination of good engineering, reliable performance, and reasonable pricing.  That trend continues to the Godox AD200 Pro Flash unit.  While Godox styles this a “pocket flash”, that is only relative to the larger flash hea [Read more...]

April 22, 2019 PolarPro QuartzLine Filters Review

I was introduced to the company PolarPro near the beginning of 2019 when they reached out to me to see if I had any interest in reviewing some of their products.  I get a lot of review requests (most of which I turn down), but I do take the time to do a quick investigation […] [Read more...]

The EP750 are the third set of headphones that I’ve reviewed from the audio company August, […] [Read more...]

February 3, 2017 Vanguard Heralder 51T Rolling Backpack Review

Vanguard Heralder 51T Review A few months ago I flew to a different country to shoot a wedding. I needed to pack wedding related gear, which for me meant two DSLRs with 24-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom lenses along with a few primes (macro and portrait primes). I also carried a collapsible reflector, two […] [Read more...]
