AndyCine Boling P1 Full RGB Bi-Color LED Light For Photo and Video

AndyCine sent this full RGB LED light with color temperature adjustment and 9 effects modes. I put the light through its paces in a mixture of use cases such as macro photography, vlogging, product photography, miniature scene and diorama timelapse/photo/video. I also tested out the light output compared to my Promaster and “Craphy” LED lights that are somewhat similar. My contact sent me a 10% off code on the Boling … Continue reading

It worked out nicely, but there were a lot of challenges with the weather! The nice thing about trying it at this time of year is that we had really unique results. I ran into a few … Continue reading

Perseverance, Perspective, and Determination

Back in September I was trying to record footage for a video about my first outing with the Canon EOS M100. The place I went was so horrible due to the mosquitoes that I only stayed around 10 minutes. That didn’t leave me with a lot of content, but I’m determined to make it work! With a slight shift of the theme I came up with this for all of … Continue reading

Canon EF-S 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM Review

Here is my Youtube video review: It’s an ultra-wide lens for APS-C sensor cameras. Under $300 new and even less used. There is a 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 that is also exclusively for APS-C cameras, but it’s around twice the price. The 35mm film equivalent focal length of this lens is 16-29mm. Equipment in this video and accessory suggestions for this lens (affiliated): https://kit.co/photographybanzai/canon-ef-s-10-18mm-f4-5-5-6-is-stm-review-gear My photos you can look at on Flickr … Continue reading

I’ve been really working on my Youtube channel lately!

Hey, it’s been a while. I’ve been working intensely on my Photography Banzai Youtube channel since around August 2017. I’m trying to see if I can really make something special out of it. Partly because I haven’t had much contracted software development work lately (freeing up time), but also because it is one of those projects I’m passionate about improving on to see where it might go in the future. … Continue reading
