The Pergear TH3 Pro ball head receives glowing reviews on Amazon, does this reviewer agree?
Restore, change or repair your “Pick and Pluck” foam. With a little bit of patience you can re-arrange your pick and pluck foam.
A review and lots of samples of a classic legacy lens, the Tamron Adaptall II SP 90mm macro lens (72b). A sharp lens that can deliver outstanding results on modern digital cameras of all brands, and is usable with many sensor sizes including Full Frame, APS-C and M4/3 using the appropriate adaptor.
Sample video footage was recorded in VLOG-L on a Panasonic G9 in 4K.
Lens footage shot with Panasonic G80 & 12-60 kit lens.
I purchased from eBay a used Panasonic 14-140mm lens which replaces one that I destroyed last year.
I shot some sample footage whilst enjoying my allocated exercise time during the Coronavirus lock down and captured all the clips in 6K photo mode on the Panasonic G9. I hope that you enjoy!

Here is a simple DIY project costing less than £10 using an IKEA ‘Trofast’ container. Build a camera stand lightbox/diffuser which gives surprisingly good results and is fun to use.
Oddly satisfying. In a lock-down Coronavirus world the cows don’t care! These cows have to cope with all the insects that are presently thriving in this almost pollution and traffic free environment. The tree in this movie which is stripped of any cow height growth serves an important purpose.
Captured this during my well loved, can’t come soon enough, 1 hour exercise allowance!
Testing my old (1988) but trustworthy Adaptall II 70-210mm lens (46A), I had forgotten how much I love this lens.
Finally committed to the V_LOG L upgrade to the Panasonic G9. Is it any good?
If you are thinking about the upgrade then check out my sample clips. There are lots of high contrast shots to test the claim that there is 12 stops of dynamic range.

This is a user review of the Laowa 17mm F1.8 C-Dreamer lens for Micro Four Thirds – MFT – M4/3 system which include Panasonic and Olympus cameras. Don’t expect laboratory condition tests this was done in my living room during COVID-19 lock-down but I believe that the results are interesting.
It’s available at a great price especially if you buy direct from China. The delivery from Laowa in China was incredibly fast.
Overall this is a quality item but does it perform well?

Presentation filmed with the Panasonic G80/85. Sample video filmed with the Panasonic G9.
I had some clips from 2019 that didn’t make to any other video so this is a collection of some of those clips. My hope is to show that the Micro Four Thirds system still has a firm place in 2020 (and beyond) and that when care is taken to expose a scene properly the system can demonstrate good dynamic range and low noise in many different lighting scenarios. Or maybe I just wanted to find a use for some otherwise redundant clips… you decide!
The Micro Four Thirds system is subject to the occasional criticism but I have found it a great replacement for my Samsung NX equipment and you will not find better value if you want to shoot 4K video.
We hope that you enjoy the video, please subscribe as we will do out best to upload videos that inform or entertain.

My review of the B&W International waterproof case (Type 4000) that I use for my M4/3 (Panasonic G9) camera and lenses.
These cases come in a variety of sizes and with various inserts for different uses, this one has ‘Pick & Pluck’ foam along with a DIY home made lens insert. This video also details a strap hack that you can use instead of buying the optional B&W International shoulder strap.
