Shooting a selfie in a toilet mirror while wearing the Autographer

I first got to have a play with the Autographer in March 2013. listen to ‘Seeing the unseen with @Autographer’ on Audioboo I had previously heard of Oxfords Metrics Group and their earlier sense cam designed to assist Alzheimer sufferers, but on this occasion I was specifically there to see the prototype device destined to […]

Velbon Ultra Stick L50 (Quick look)

Me with the GH1 on the Velbon Ultra Pod

I have a selection of supports for my camera gear. All shapes and sizes, for all kinds of uses. Tripods that rarely see the light of day, monopods that for some reason have three legs but are still called monopods and those overpriced pocketable types with the flexible legs that flex to pieces. I wanted […]

iPhone 5 Vs the iPhone 4s: With Photos in mind.

There are no images of the iPhone 5 in this blog post. I imagine you have seen one by now and know what it looks like. This is certainly not the normal phone review due to some interesting realisations that forced me to change the way I look at comparing the iPhone 4s to the […]

The iPad Mini (a mini review)

iPad Mini

[Disclaimer] I will be talking a lot about Apple products during this review. I have a lot of them and if these apps and tools I have become accustomed too existed on other devices, I’d be sure to be purchasing outside the Apple brand. I have no loyalty to Apple other than their expensive tools […]

The Tom Bihn Tri-Star Carry-on Travel Bag

[Disclaimer] This video is more of a quick look than a review. I have no personal connection with Tom Bihn and this bag was sent to me free of charge. I only paid import duty, but don’t let that lead you to think I haven’t been anything other than honest with my opinion. I already […]

002 – Eat in a Ukrainian Restaurant

Golupsie

The years are mounting up this side of my Granddads death and as well as the conversational glimpses into my family history, I find myself missing the food we would eat. He loved his food. In his final years, housebound and slowly going blind, conversation, food and the radio were his only real pleasures. My […]

The Y-Cam Bullet IP Camera

I got sent the Y-Cam Bullet last year and then when I moved home it found itself into a box, only to be re-discovered last week. Cables, adapters, wall/ceiling mount, power lead, optional sun visor etc, all  come in the box. I had already purchased a Y-cam S in black over 2 years ago (the older […]

American – The Bill Hicks Story

I just got this in the post.  Bill Hicks is one of the reasons I do what I do now. At school we would pass around a cassette tape with his name in thick black marker pen. He is the reason I started shouting at the TV.. questioning the news. The reason I went to Iraq to see […]

KeyCase iPad Folio Deluxe with Bluetooth Keyboard – Review

I first heard about the KeyCase iPad Folio Deluxe with Bluetooth Keyboard on the @BritishMac podcast. Apart from being the longest named iPad accessory I have come across, I thought it looked pretty handy. I found the @GearZap website and immediately got lost in the masses of iPad accessories. I asked @Gearzap on twitter if they had a unit I could review […]

Films of Colour at The Cowshed in Milton Keynes

A few photos I took last night of the band @FilmsOfColour as they played at a small festival called Hushabye Mountain at The Cowshed ran by @DaveCowshed. Certainly a band you will be hearing a lot more of in the coming months. (Kit used: Nikon D3 with a few f2.8 lenses)
