December and Christmas Tech Haul
December is a busy busy month and it was only natural that with Christmas I'd be getting some technology and photography items. Some of these items I was gifted by family members and some of these items came from the brands themselves.
As always I only recommend items I use and would buy myself.
All the items are from Amazon and the links are all affiliate links to help maintain this site and helping it to grow.
Nikon D610 + 24-85mm
£1459 - Buy Here
This is my new camera set up. This is a Nikon Full Frame camera which will allow me to really improve my photography and hopefully take it to the next level.
I have been using the 24 - 85mm lens at the moment.
RYCOTE Micro Windjammer
£9.95 - Buy Here
The beauty of these is that they will pretty much work on anything with a microphone. You can stick these to dSLRs, Point & Shoots or Smartphones. They help cut out wind noise so they are perfect for vlogging when out and about.
Lowepro Deluxe Media Case 30
£14.57 - Buy Here
In the past my memory cards have just got thrown in my pocket or bag and often end up damaged. This pouch is great for me as I can keep them protected and it can attach to my bag and I then know I always have spare ones with me.
Dymo Omega Embossing Label Maker
£9.44 - Buy Here
I've been after a way of labelling my things, items such as hard-drives and cases. This label maker is lightweight and I think it looks pretty cool with the embossed labels.
Rode Smartlav+ + Rode SC3 iPhone Accessory
Smartlav - £45.72 - Buy Here
SC3 - £10.20 - Buy Here
I'm always looking for ways to improve the sound quality of my videos and the Smartlav+ will allow me to do this. It can be connected to my camera or phone and not look to unsightly. The next phase will include me running my sound through a separate device.
EACHINE E10C Mini Drone
£32.99 - Buy Here
I've been after a drone for a while buy the large ones just aren't practical for me at the moment so I now have a mini drone. This will help me to get used to flying one and also I should be able to capture some small video clips to use in videos.
Black Rapid Sport Breathe Camera Strap
£81.99 - Buy Here
Since moving to Full Frame I've noticed just how much heavier the camera is. Before I was happy to hold it all day long but this would give a serious work out. I have been a fan of Black Rapid for a long time and was so happy when they sent me this for my new camera.
Triggertrap MD3-DC2 Cable Kit for Nikon + TT-TRAP Smartphone Adapter
iPhone 7 Plus with ThreeUK
From £39 per month - Buy Here
I wish I could say this was mine to keep but it's not. I have been given this for a short period so that I can make a 'Real Life' review showing just how good the camera actually is. So far I'm really impressed with it.
