Lowepro Pro Roller X300

In this video, Matt Granger from ThatNikonGuy/PhotoNewsReviews does a hands-on review of the Lowepro Pro Roller x300 camera bag. If you intend to bring everything but the kitchen sink (or maybe even the kitchen sink) to a shoot, this is the bag for you.

Gitzo systematic ocean tripods

In this video, Matt Granger from PhotoNewsReviews/ThatNikonGuy does a hands-on review of the Gitzo systematic ocean tripods. These premium all-weather tripods are very amazing and the larger models can support quite a large load of weight, with the travel tripod supporting a modest 4kg, which is plenty for most camera/lens combos, except the super-telephotos. The only ick factor is the price tag, which is way out of my league.

Maha Powerex MH-C800S vs MH-C801D

In this video, Matt Granger from PhotoNewsReviews/ThatNikonGuy does a hands-on review of the Maha Powerex MH-C800S and the MH-C801D. These are known as the best battery chargers out there, and they’re definitely something on my wish-list.

Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote Control review

In this video, I do a quick review of the Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote Control.

This infrared remote has two options that let you control your camera. If your camera is in a picture mode, you can take a picture immediately, or after a 2 second timer. If your camera is in video mode, you can start/stop the video, or you can take a picture. If the AF is on, this enables you to refocus the camera while you’re in front of it.

The bigger downside is that the RC-6 operates using infrared, so you must be in line of sight of the camera. You must also be located in front of the camera, since that’s where the sensor is located.

Rocketfish Carbon Fiber Tripod with fluid head RF-TRP65 review

In this video, I do a review of the features of the Rocketfish Carbon Fiber Tripod, which comes with a fluid head.  When I went shopping for Black Friday sales, I didn’t even know the existence of Rocketfish.  Like most shoppers, I was going to see the deals on Manfrotto, Gitzo, 3 Legged Things, etc.

But once I saw the quality, the price and the features, I was sold on this great tripod from Rocketfish.  It’s relatively cheap, can support up to 17.6 lbs, has a fluid head for videos, can take photos in both landscape and portrait orientations, and it’s almost as tall as I am.

Wedding Photography tips – minimum camera equipment

In this video I share my thoughts on what I believe is the minimum equipment to successfully shoot a wedding.

While most wedding photographers feel uneasy if they have less than 10’000$ worth of gear with them, I show a kit that can get the job done in the 1500-2000$ range.  Any less than that is still doable, but will most likely give way more headaches.
