Probably the best value motorised camera slider mod ever! ;-)

This simple camera slider mod can be applied to motorise many sliders. It’s simple to do, very effective and the components are cheap to buy at around $30. There are lots of options for powering the slider as well as customising the range of speeds.

This video has many slider samples featuring the Panasonic G9 and Olympus 60mm macro lens. The rest of the content was filmed by the Panasonic G80 with 12-60mm kit lens.

A lazy Sunday at Torigni-sur-Vire with the Panasonic G80 and 14-140mm lens

A few hours spent walking around the lakes and town of Torigini-sur-Vire in Normandy. France.

Filmed with the Panasonic G80 and the Pansonic 14-140mm lens which is probably the most versatile lens or the Micro Four Thirds system, it covers a vast zoom range and yet produces excellent quality sharp images, highly recommended!


Olympus 60mm f2.8 Macro Lens – Summary review & 4K video samples

These are my first video clips (A Walk At The Lake) shot with the fantastic Olympus 60mm f2.8 Macro Lens mounted on the Panasonic G9.

The video contains a brief summary of my observations and recommendations for this lens.

I hope that you enjoy the video & samples.


Agon Coutainville

Agon Coutainvile is a beautiful seaside town on the west coast of Normandy in France. Vast often empty beaches and a 3km promenade will appeal to both sun worshippers and walkers. The tide goes out a long way so swimmers should check the times of the tides or face a long walk! The town has all amenities. If you are in the area Agon Coutainville is well worth a visit.

Filmed with Panasonic G80/G85 and the Panasonic 14-140mm lens.

A DIY photography hack. Changing lenses on a monopod/tripod with just one hand.

Came up with this simple little DIY gadget which helps make the changing of lenses whilst using a monopod/tripod much easier and faster. I use this with MFT lenses which are mostly compact and lightweight. The same tool can be made for different lens systems but you must be sure that whichever system you use that the caps are capable of holding the weight of the lens. This is not meant to be a permanent method for carrying lenses, do so at your own risk.

A Visiting Baby Greenfinch

We found this very tired little baby Greenfinch outside our living room window. It was in our garden for at least a couple of hours. The poor thing could not keep it’s eyes open. We kept an eye on him, he fully recovered his strength and took flight again.

Filmed with a Panasonic FZ1000.


Privet Hawk-Moth in our garden
