    Video Review: The Golla Garnet – Pro Camera Sling

    I’m a sucker for a good bag! Mix practicality and durability with just a pinch of style, and you’ll get me every time. Golla sent their Garnet pro camera sling my way. I’ve spent about a month playing with it, taking it with me on a couple of location gigs…and I’ve been pleasantly impressed. Finnish design at an affordable price. Let’s get hands on!

    Control Your Camera Wirelessly – ‘DSLRs Remote’ is our App of the Week!

    I love finding little utilities like this! For those of you who own an SLR camera, a wireless remote for your camera can run $20 or more. It’s apparently a simple infrared signal, and wouldn’t you know it, our phones now have IR blasters built into them! If only there were a way to send a signal from our phone that could activate the shutter on our camera… Hmmmm….

  • The Samsung SmartCam: Our Complete Review

    The Samsung SmartCam: Our Complete Review

    When you think about home security these days, the meaning has taken on a whole new definition thanks to the explosion of mobile devices. Several years back, the ability to remotely monitor your home was restricted to those with deep pockets and large installation requirements – but today, we have products like the Samsung SmartCam. What is the SmartCam? Much like a SmartPhone, it’s a wireless, night-vision enabled camera that can live anywhere in your home. It establishes a wireless connection to your existing network and then connects to a portal that gives you access to the live feed online and on-the-go.

    Review: ECBC Hercules Travel Laptop Backpack – TSA Fast Pass Approved

    I’m a nut for good bags. Durable materials combined with room for accessories is a recipe for success. Package that in a good look aesthetic and you’ve got me hook line and sinker. ECBC is a company that I wasn’t familiar with before this review, but now I’m looking forward to trying out more of their gear. The Hercules is their premier travel backpack, so let’s dig in and take a look!

     
  • Smartphone Camera Showdown: HTC One vs Samsung Galaxy S 4!

    Smartphone Camera Showdown: HTC One vs Samsung Galaxy S 4!

    Ready? FIGHT! These two companies have managed to produce phones, which as premier Android devices, couldn’t be more different from each other. Nowhere is this more clearly illustrated than in their radically different approaches to the camera tech. Now while there are still raging debates as to which camera produces better still photos, we can at least compare the video from these two directly! So let’s get cracking and see how the Galaxy S 4 compares to the HTC One in low light, night photography, and with movement.

    ***Review “Quick Links” below to skip to different sections of the review*** The GalCam is gorgeous. I’ve been using this one religiously since getting it just before CES.

Only one way to find out… Hit the jump for high res photo samples and for Links to specific sections of the review!

     
  • Smartphone Camera Macro Comparison: Pantech Discover vs Lumia 920

    Smartphone Camera Macro Comparison: Pantech Discover vs Lumia 920

    Two extremely formidable camera modules. I was surprised to see a 12.6MP shooter in the Discover. Not a lot of people know what a “Pantech” is yet, but you can’t fault them for trying to change that. My current favorite is still the Lumia 920, especially in low light; but I wanted to see how these two would fare against each other in a macro test. Flower photography is one of my favorite pastimes, and we’re getting to a point where our phones are capable of delivering VERY good photographic results. First the Lumia (click to get full sized image): I find the photo (taken in the shade) is a touch cool. Nokia/Microsoft has pushed the saturation in the jpeg creation a touch hard for my taste, and here it’s resulting in a slightly blue-ish cast to the photo. I also think noise reduction is too aggressive, and might be […]
