I couldn’t resist buying the Sony RX0 II to compliment my Sony Alpha setup – the a7III and a6500. I wanted a small waterproof camera that I could abuse to get shots that I couldn’t get with my larger Sony cameras. While I have been using my GoPro for these type of shooing scenarios, mixing footage was always a hassle. Check out the video for my in-depth review. Is it perfect? No! Would I buy it again? Absolutely!
While I enjoy shooting with my Sony cameras, the fact that Sony never offered a flip-out screen with their higher-end mirrorless lineup is frustrating. So one either has to live with that, or invest in an on-camera monitor. There are many different external camera monitors available nowadays, in a wide range of features and sizes. Watch my review of the PortKeys LH5 HDR to learn why I love this field monitor so much!

Let’s assume you just bought the new GoPro HERO7 Black and you would like to know how to set it up for filmmaking. I got you covered. In this video I go through the video settings, explain what they mean and how to adjust them. I hope this helps!
I finally upgraded my GoPro Hero5 Black, which I wasn’t too crazy about. The image and audio quality wasn’t great for a US$400 action camera and the features weren’t that exciting either. The improvements and new features of the GoPro HERO7 Black however won me over again. In this video I am testing the new GoPro HERO7 Black and compare it to the GoPro Hero5 Black – just in case you are still undecided whether you should get one.
I bought the Sony a7III and I couldn’t be happier!
The Sony a6500, which I used for the last year, is still a great camera. I will keep it as a back-up camera. However, when it comes to slow-motion and low light, the a6500 isn’t performing as good as I was hoping it would. I was also missing the full-frame look in my photos that I fell in love with back in the days when I was shooting with the Canon 5D.
As a hybrid shooter, the Sony a7III ticks all the boxes. And for US$2000 it is simply the best camera on the market. Watch my review for more details of the camera and how it performs against the Sony a6500.
Sometimes I need to travel light, but still want to shoot great video. This is my lightweight travel video setup that I can take with me anywhere, yet doesn’t slow me down on my adventures.
I was lucky enough to grab one of the first GoPro Hero5 Black cameras when I was in Pattaya, Thailand, recently. I took the opportunity to review it and check on the audio quality of the in-camera microphones, image stabilization, low-light capabilities, etc.
