As I mentioned in a previous post, I'll be doing more bags and accessories reviews since I get asked a lot of questions about my support gear for my photography. The number 1 (or 2) accessory is camera bags, along with camera straps. Although Chrome is not a camera bag company, I enjoy the aesthetics of their bags and often use their bags as my EDC. So if you're interested in Chrome Industries, check out my latest unboxing video. If not, you can move on...

Hello everyone and welcome to my latest review, the new Leica SL2. My original Leica SL review may have been the reason why you first discovered my Youtube channel. Unlike many who trashed it, I really really enjoyed shooting with the original odd-ball SL. I knew it would be a hit with existing Leica photographers with plenty of M mount lenses. Version 2 has improved on the already great EVF and LCD, and they've installed their latest 47MP sensor with IBIS. Watch the video for my initial thoughts, but this review is far from complete. I rushed to finish this video as I had to quickly travel to Hong Kong and Japan for work. I've come back and will continue reviewing the SL2 and come back to you with my full thoughts on this new camera. Thanks for watching and happy shooting!!

Hello everyone, I'm back from Hong Kong and this is my overview video of the entire trip. I did make one quick visit to Okinawa, but other than that, the rest of the time was spent in Hong Kong. I didn't get as much done as I wanted, but that's okay. I tend to try and get too much done anyway. I was able to shoot lots of film, and I spent as much time as I could with Vishal from Camera Film Photo. Hopefully I'll be back in a couple of months to start printing my upcoming zine. Thanks for all your support and we'll talk to you soon. Happy shooting!!

Yet another X-Pro3 video (I'm still not done), this time comparing the new Dura Black finish with the previous X-Pro2's limited edition Graphite. What I liked about the Graphite edition X-Pro2 was the matching finish lens, the XF23mm F/2 R WR. I wonder if Fujifilm will make a limited edition titanium or at least a Dura Black and Dura Silver finish XF35mm f/1.4. I hope so.

It's time for a video centric gear review. I'm testing the new Hollyland Tech Mars 400S wireless transmission system. It's something that most Youtubers wouldn't need, but when you have it, you realize how powerful a device this can be, especially if you are working on a larger project. Wireless transmission systems are very common in the video world, but what makes the Mars 400S unit unique is that it can also send wireless signals to up to 4 iOS or Android devices via their mobile app. I tested it by connecting 2 iPads and 1 iPhone, and it worked flawlessly. Not only are you transmitting video but also audio, and you can record on your device as well at 1080P. Please watch the video for more details

I didn't think I would enjoy reviewing such a small camera bag, but I actually like it a lot. As many of you know, for my smaller bags, I tend to carry non-camera bags as my daily bag. I find camera bags overly padded and protected, which takes up weight and space. Check out my video review for my full thoughts on this new compact camera sling from Chrome Industries.

On my latest article for FujiLove Magazine, I decided to review the new film simulation Classic Neg that's available on the new Fujifilm X-Pro3. It may seem unusual to review a virtual film, but that's the reality of digital photography. Even though it's digital, we still yearn for unique profiles for our images, just like the film days. Imagine if the output of all digital files looked exactly the same? It's like if everyone just shot with with same film during the analogue era of photography. How boring would that be? So check out my latest review here at FujiLove Magazine.
