It's a cloudless night with a full moon and you're driving along a deserted road in the middle of nowhere with thick forest on both sides of the road. With the windows rolled down you can hear your tires crunching over the gravel as you drive slowly. The sound almost puts you into a trance but [...]

lumee-lighted-cell-phone-case

It's a shame you have to use the front-facing camera on your phone for selfies, because that camera doesn't have a flash.  When you aren't in well-lighted places, your selfies will be lacking in detail because of the poor lighting.  The LuMee Light Up Cell Phone Case with built-in lights that shine on your face [...]

I remember when POV action cameras first started making their appearance and if you wanted to do any underwater shots, or needed to shoot scenes where your camera could get wet, you had to purchase a waterproof housing since one didn't come with the camera. Today companies like GoPro, SJCAM, BlackVue, etc., have a waterproof housing as [...]

lyfelens

Although I don't consider myself a dashcam expert, after reviewing three of these devices, I think I have a good idea which features make a dashcam stand out from the crowd. The LyfeLens dashcam looks to be the ultimate dashcam in terms of features. At least it looks great on paper. The LyfeLens features dual-facing [...]

The Instant Photo Printing Camera brings back the days of the old Polaroid cameras that shot out a piece of photo paper so you could watch your photo develop right before your eyes.  I don't think you'll watch these develop, but using "a self-developing high-speed film, the camera produces a vibrant, scrapbook-worthy 2.5" H x [...]

knog-expose-smart-light-1

Although the iPhone has a built-in flash, it's often not bright enough to provide sufficient illumination in really low-light conditions.  Add a Knog [expose] smart light to your iPhone, and you'll have 9 LEDs shining an extra 130 lumens on your subject.  The [expose] has a built-in lithium-polymer battery, so it doesn't drain your iPhone's battery.

dropcase-1

The Dropcam Pro is one of the most compact, easy to use, and polished wireless cameras on the market. Their greatest weakness is being an indoor-only product with no outdoor option. Over the past few years, other manufactures have created aftermarket enclosures to protect the Dropcam from the elements. But many of these products have come [...]

Kenu Stance-1

Let's face it, we live in a compact on the go world. Now days if it doesn't fit in our pockets, purses or wallets or on our key chains, we tend not to keep it around or forget it all together. This seems especially true when traveling, with all the size and weight restrictions a [...]
