ThorFire Model C1 E27 12W Daywhite CREE COB Chip LED SMD Light Bulb Review

Support this channel by checking out this product on BangGood:

My good friend Sami from BangGood sent me this light bulb to review. Cree LEDs such as this ThorFire C1 E27 12W are really amazing. In this case, it offers about 75W equivalent power at only 12W. This is a 5000K white balance bulb which is very similar to daylight.

I would not necessarily use this for my photography and videography, but I would certainly use it to light up the studio to save on electricity costs, provide nice lighting, and not have to climb up ladders to change lights every couple of months.

For those more concerned about the environment, these bulbs do not contain Lead nor mercury, and do not produce any UV or IR radiation which is great for everyone and for the environment.

APC Power Back UPS review

Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS) allow you preserve your equipment, and prevent data loss when the electricity goes out. Acting as a fancy power bar, it has a built-in rechargeable battery that can give you some 10-15 minutes of power in case of a power failure, enough to save your files safely, and shut down your computer.

I own two APC Back-UPS. The first one has a LCD screen and plugs in the computer via USB to provide better control and cooperation between the two. I plug in my desktop computer, USB drive, and anything valuable on this one. The second is smaller and I use it more for laptops and smaller peripherals.

APC products at Adorama

The ones I have are similar to these two (Adorama links):

  • APC 1500V Power Saving Back-UPS Pro, 865W
  • APC 550VA Back-UPS with 8 Outlet Surge Protector and Battery Backup, 330W
  • Canon 1Dx hands on (vs Nikon D4)

    In this video, Matt Granger presents the Canon 1Dx and compares it to the Nikon D4.
