Gel Suction Smartphone Car Mount Review!

For those of you who live in the U.S., did you know it’s illegal in over 50% of the States to have a suction cup phone mount on the windshield of your car? (See my article here for list of illegal States). Cops will probably not pull you over but if they wanted to find a reason, this could be one reason to pull you over. If you like to carry illegal stuff in your car (not that I recommend it), pay attention, I may save you from going to jail. Besides that, having a suction phone mount on your windshield does get in the way of your view.

Sony FDR-AX33 4K Camcorder Unboxing and Initial Review!

I decided to upgrade my camera gear a bit with some 4K videos.  For that, I chose the latest Sony FDR-AX33, which is Sony’s latest 4K camera just released at end of Febuary in 2015.  Sony did release a larger FDR-AX100 (which has larger sensor) but the newer FDR-AX33 is a lot more portable plus it has BOSS (Balanced Optical Steady Shot) along with 100Mbps bitrate.  Now, for those of you looking for a good 4K camcorder to make 4K videos, this may be one of the best 4K camcorders out right nowt that’s under $1000.

Sony CX330 Camcorder Review! [My Camera Gear]

I know I made this website to be about Android but I have a ton of passion for making videos and video equipment.  Plus, if you want to take videos that you can’t really make with an Android device, this could be very useful.

For example, I love my Note 4 camera and its camera abilities but if I wanted to make home videos of my daughter skateboarding (and me following her) without my Note 4 shaking on me, I really couldn’t as smartphone video recording technology is simply not there yet.  One day I will definitely make videos with my Android smartphones only but until then, I use other gear that make my videos as best as possible.
