Prynt Pocket iPhone photo printer and camera grip review

If you own a smartphone, I am willing to bet that you have more than a few images on your phone. Except for a Canon 70D DSLR that I use to take most of my product review shots, I use my iPhone 7 Plus to take all my personal shots. 90% of those images stay …

DxO ONE camera attachment for iPhone and iPad review

I have been a digital photographer for over 15 years now. I started with the equivalent of an Instamatic, and moved up to a prosumer, then full DSLR cameras. I have bought and sold lenses, filters, and other equipment. While I don’t pretend to know how to adjust f-stops and ISO for challenging conditions, I …

Hasselblad True Zoom Camera Moto Z Mod review

When you shop for a new smartphone, do you base your decision on how good the camera is? It’s a determining factor for me. I wouldn’t consider buying a phone that has a sub par camera because my phone is my main camera. That’s why I’ve been fascinated with camera accessories like clip on lenses …

If you hoped that the selfie stick fad was over, I’m sorry to break the news to you that it’s not. Selfie sticks are here to stay and now you don’t have to carry one in your pocket or gear bag to be one of the “cool” kids. Ditch the stand alone sticks because the …

In January of 2017, I wrote a news post about the Joopic CamBuddy Pro. The folks at Joopic enjoyed the news post and provided me a Joopic CamBuddy as a sample to review.

Miggo Pictar Plus iPhone camera grip review

I fashion myself as somewhat of an amateur photographer. I’ve been fascinated with photography ever since I took Mr. Bunton’s “Intro to Photography” class way back in the ninth grade. And like a lot of people I love taking photos with my iPhone. Apple forever changed the way we take photographs when they introduced the …

Monster Vision 1080p+ action cam review

The Monster Vision 1080p+ is an action / sports camera that can capture video at 1080P resolution. I recently reviewed my first action cam (the Andoer 4K action camera) and wasn’t overly impressed. When I was offered the chance to review another camera by a well-known name, I was happy to check it out. Let’s take …

Joopic CamBuddy Pro is the Swiss Army Knife of DSLR controllers

A couple of weeks ago Julie reviewed the Alpine Labs Pulse DSLR camera remote. I came across a similar item while perusing the internet and thought I would write about it. The item is the Joopic CamBuddy Pro and like the Alpine Labs device, it is an attachment to a DSLR that sits on the hot shoe and provides …
