Affordable Studio and Video LED Light Solution from Neewer

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI have been a fan of these camera lights for a few years now. I own several Neewer CN-126 and CN-160 camera lights. Some I use for my video shoots, a couple in the studio and one even illuminates me during my solo-acoustic shows. But did you know you can get add-ons that will turn this light into a great studio light? No batteries needed! The Neewer CN-160 Let’s start with this small camera LED light. The dimmable LED comes with 2 filters – diffusion and 3200K light for a warmer look. Take the filters off and you have 5700k lights to brighten any situation. The CN-160 LED can throw over 600 Lumens up to 20 feet. In my 10-12 foot studio (a.k.a. the second bedroom), two of these lights would be more than enough. I am adding a third to...

Monoprice ActionCam Video Camera MHD 2.0

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIn this world of “record everything”, we want ways to capture our adventures – whether biking down the side of a mountain, driving the strip, or just walking around. Small fish-eye lens cameras help in capturing that moment. That includes this Action Camera from Monoprice. The MHD 2.0 is a fun little sub-$100 camera so you can catch your favorite moves. I use these cameras a little different, as they become part of the production. Instead of lugging around several $1,000 cameras, I can now bring one or two of those, then bring my small based cameras like the GoPro HERO4 or this Monoprice ActionCam camera. You can record and post-edit, or connect directly to an HDMI cable to stream and mix live.

Choetech 5 Port USB Surge Protector, Griffin Reversible Lightning Cable

Today, I take a look at two USB products in the Choetech Surge protected 5-USB port charger, and the Griffin reversible USB to Lightning connector. Both are great products to have for your USB or iOS needs. Griffin Reversible USB to Lightning Cable Don’t you hate it when you can’t plug the USB cable in, so you think it’s backwards and flip it around only to find out the first way was right? Back in January, Griffin showed their solution to this problem in the reversible USB cable.  Now, the cable is out and ready for use. I checked out the 5 foot cable – a braided nylon cable with a more protective jacket at the plug ends. I put it in a high-traffic room to see how it would fair. Whereas my standard iPad/iPhone cable looked very dirty and sticky after a few days in this area,...

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge – My Love – Hate Relationship with this Phone

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS  Samsung has always tried to be on the cutting edge of mobile technology. They have continuously tout they have cooler features than the iPhone, and in some cases, they are right. However, the newest phone in their arsenal – the S6 Edge – while cool, shows that not all ideas are great. Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Specs This is a 32 GB device and this particular one is on the Verizon Network. The “Revolutionary design” is basically a side-less phone. The edge of the screen wraps around the phone and can serve as a small display that can tell the time, let you know if someone has called, get calendar alerts, and more. The phone itself is a 5.1 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass to protect from scratches and drops. The rest of the phone...

Coffee Talk with Manish Goel of HP Storage – HP Discover

Earlier this year, HP Storage hired a new Senior Vice President in Manish Goel (NetApp) after David Scott (who came over from the 3PAR acquisition) retired last year. Manish sat down with the top Enterprise bloggers who wanted to ask the hard questions as to the new direction of HP Storage. Of course, Goel had some pretty big shoes to fill, and the bloggers wanted to know what his direction is for storage. Along with Siamak Nazari, Brad Parks, and Ivan Iannaccone, the group answered questions about infrastructure and hardware technology, storage management, and the direction of 3PAR. One hot topic in the coffee talk was the direction of flash and flash-array storage. As 1-out-of-3 arrays are all-flash, the bloggers were really interested in Manish’s vision. Following is the full video for this coffee talk. Note that the first 15 minutes we had wireless interference, so you might...
