Olloclip burst onto the scene a few years ago, and they proved that while the iPhone’s camera might be great, this accessory could make it even better. The company has since rolled out numerous iterations of their lenses and kept adapted to each new iPhone design. The Core Lens Set is designed to work with the Apple’s latest and greatest.
I’ve written about my experience with Nixplay frames previously. I love the ease-of-use they provide and really enjoy being able to see various pictures from the trips Raina and I have taken. The company recently released the new Nixplay Iris 8”. At $199.99, this is the company’s most refined WiFi frame yet and … I love it.
Happy Holidays, and welcome to the shopping hell that is the period between Thanksgiving and other winter celebrations. No one wants to wait in line to buy gifts, but we all like holiday markdowns, and that’s what I’ve got rounded up for you. Make a note of these big Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals — no lines necessary!
I’ve been shooting more video for personal enjoyment and for my church. It’s for this reason I bought a GoPro Hero 4 Black a few months ago; it has since become my favorite camera. When given the opportunity to take a look at Pyle’s new Compact ACTION! Cam, I thought: Cold this possibly be as good as a more expensive GoPro?
We’ve got two TCL 4K Roku-enabled televisions in our house, and I feel like TCL is one of those brands that isn’t yet well-known, but they should be. TCL products are extremely well made, they work exactly as promised, and they are generally well priced.
When I first read the SpiderLight Holster Kickstarter campaign presser sent to GearDiary by Spider Camera Holster, I was a bit skeptical. I have seen a lot of new gear pop up on the market and so much of it did little to aid or improve my images or my shooting routine. SpiderLight changed my mind.
If you shoot 4K video, then you know how quickly the gigabytes get used; here to make your life much easier is the new SanDisk Extreme Pro 1TB SDXC card. That’s one thousand gigabytes to you, sir!

I have spent years fighting with my game camera. It seems no matter where it is mounted, it ends up facing the wrong way taking thousands of photos of swaying grass or limbs. All the while, not giving me the images needed to manage the deer herd. I recently discovered the T-Mate camera mount, and it has fixed my woes.
360-degree photos and video are all the rage right now, what with Facebook and Youtube embracing the technology. The Insta360 Nano is looking to capitalize on the craze, with its super portable, iPhone compatible design. It can shoot 360-degree photos and even live-stream high definition virtual reality video right to Facebook or Youtube. Get yours now on Amazon for $199.
Even though the iPhone’s camera has evolved into a decent compact camera replacement, there are times when I still wish that I was carrying a wide-angle or a telephoto lens. Now that I have a Ztylus Z-Prime Lens Kit, that problem is essentially solved.
With the increased quality of your phone’s camera, is there less of a need for DSLRs and other common cameras? The camera on the iPhone 6S is a whopping 12 megapixels and 4K video, however, the sensor is not first rate. The new Nikon D500 is around $2000 and has the same 4K video, and it is just 20.9 megapixels (megapixels identify the size of the image; for more information, click here), and it has a great sensor (23.5 mm x 15.7 mm).
Yuneec Aviation, makers of the picture perfect Typhoon Q500 4K, have announced the pricing and preorder of their newest drone, the Typhoon H.

The Typhoon H is competitively priced at $1,299.99!
ZAGG’s been doing some interesting things as of late. I have a review of their iPhone 6 Speaker Case coming shortly and that’s just the beginning. Their latest creation is the ZAGG Now Cam. This little camera is designed to let you capture video and images without running your smartphone battery down. And that’s just the beginning! The Now Cam is actually three devices in one. It is a Social Video AND a Camera AND a Bluetooth Speaker. All that and it still costs under $130. As ZAGG explains: The Now Cam frees you from the confines of viewing life from behind…
One of my tech oriented hobbies is photography. I almost always have at least one other camera with me be it my Nikon D3300, a point and shoot or a Kodak ZI8 video camera. So other than a camera, here’s a list of ideas for that photog on your list.
Last year we reviewed the Nixplay digital frame. I love the large vibrant screen, the ease of use, and the ability to add pictures directly from your smartphone using the free app. Now the company has released the Nixplay Seed Digital Frame. Available in 7”, 8”, and 10” and a variety of colors, prices start at just $89.99!
Yuneec Electric Aviation has set its sights on the aerial photography market with it’s new Typhoon Q500 4K quadcopter. The Typhoon sports a Ground Station with integrated Android-powered touchscreen, and 3-axis gimbal camera capturing 4K/30fps ultra high-definition or 1080p/120fps slow motion video with a no-distortion lens. The Typhoon starts at $1,199.99 with a standard case and one battery pack.
I’ve written quite a bit on the topic of smartphone photography in recent years. In the area of expanding the creativity in capturing images with these devices there has been some type lens converter required and usually that necessitated a dedicated case/lens combo. Not anymore, though, thanks to USBFever and it’s new line of clip-on lenses!
I am always looking for ways to augment my iPhone photography, ever since it became the “camera” I carry with me every day. And since olloclip came on the scene a few years ago, I have been looking forward to testing one of their lens attachments. I recently got that opportunity with the olloclip Active Lens.
I use my iPhone to take almost all of my photos anymore; the 6 Plus’s camera is excellent, but it does have limitations. I first found out about the Ztylus case and Revolver 4-in-1 lens system at CE Week, and it intrigued me; after several weeks of use, I figure it’s time you found out about it, too.
