Wireless Monitoring Device for Youtubers: The MARS X

Here is my latest video introducing the new Hollyland Tech Mars X wireless video transmission device. I did previously review their more professional Mars 400S system, and I really liked it. However, I didn't need such a robust system and asked if they could make a unit targeting small video creators like myself. Here's what you get for $179 USD dollars with the new Mars X:

1. Up To 3 iOS And Android Devices Monitoring
2. 112g With Rounded Crash-proof Aluminum Corners
3. 300ft Transmission Range (LOS), less than 0.07s Ultra-Low Latency
4. Pro Monitor Features: Turn Your Phones/Tablets into External Monitors
5. New App Features: App Firmware Upgrade and Smart Channel Scan
6. Built-In Battery with Multiple Power Supply Options: Built In 1300ma Lithium Battery With 1h Battery Life; Type-C (5V-12V) Wide Voltage Charging Plus Gimbal Charging
7. Single HDMI IN with 1080P And Various Other Resolution Formats
8. 8 Frequency Channels to avoid interference for Stable Wireless Transmission
9. OLED Info. Display: Battery Status, Frequency Channel, Video Format, And WiFi Password
10. Collapsible Antennas: Increased Portability, Installation Convenience, And Shooting Efficiency

Fujifilm X100V Quick Review

Hello everyone,

Here is my first impressions video on the new Fujifilm X100V. This camera is a winner. Almost 10 years since it's announcement, the X100 series has slowly evolved into a very competent and desirable camera. Even if you own the most advanced DSLR or mirrorless ILC, you probably still want an X100V as your vacation or 'inspiration' camera. The latest improvements with an articling screen and weather-sealing has made this camera even better than the previous X100F. Watch my latest video as I go over the pros, cons and comparisons with the X-Pro3, X100F, Leica Q and the GFX 50S!!
