Most cable finders are crap. That’s why you find many of the devices at the grab boxes in the checkout area of hardware stores. With the Bosch D-Tect 120, I found a working cable tester for the first time.
If you search the internet for the best export options for uploading videos to YouTube, you will always come across videos and blog posts that present exporting as H264 codec in MP4 format as a panacea. The reality is different. YouTube re-encodes every upload, no matter what format you upload it in. The only advantage of this format is the fast upload, because the file size is smaller.
We’ve always taken photos, but we took our trip to Slovenia as an opportunity to take a closer look at video for the first time. You can see our result here.
For 14 days we camped through Slovenia in our camper van. We went from the Triglav National Park in the north, through the vineyards to the coast and back. A photoblog with route recommendations.
With FE File Explorer I was finally able to backup my camera SD card to my iPad or a connected SSD while traveling.
I use the Capture Clip carrying system from Peak Design on all my cameras. All my tripod heads are compatible with the Capture Clip. Only for the DJI Ronin RSC 2 I have to change my system every time. I will show you how to use your camera with Peak Design Capture Clip directly into the DJI Ronin RS 2 and RSC 2, without any screws. An alternative quick release plate makes it possible.
The Rollei Lumen portable light promises flexible lighting in the studio and on the road. The light emits white light in different colour temperatures or the complete RGB colour spectrum. In this article, I test the workmanship and use for video and photo lighting.
I needed a cordless vacuum cleaner. I’d had enough of tangling cords that wouldn’t rewind. Enough of bumping a floor vacuum against doors, walls and furniture. But are the battery and suction power enough? After just under half a year, I can say that the effort was worth it.
A cordless battery vacuum cleaner for the motor home was needed. It had to be lightweight and not take up much storage space. The hose of our old on-board vacuum cleaner alone took up as much space as a crate of drinks. I also had enough of tangling cables that wouldn’t rewind. Enough of bumping a floor vacuum against table legs. But are the battery and suction power enough? After a half year, I can say that the effort was worth it.
A cordless battery vacuum cleaner was needed for the sailing boat. It had to be lightweight and not eat up much storage space. The hose of our old on-board vacuum cleaner alone took up as much space as a beverage crate. I was also fed up with tangled cables that wouldn’t rewind. Enough of bumping a floor vacuum against table legs and edges. But are the battery and suction power enough? After half a year, I can say that the effort was worth it.
If you want to grout tiles and mosaics in areas that can sometimes be full of water, you need water-, algae- and fungus-resistant grout. I used a special pool grout and am impressed by the result.
It can be difficult to know when a houseplant needs watering. The industry has developed watering indicators for this purpose. Unfortunately, these do not always work particularly reliably. The results are often hard to read or ambiguous. Today I present you an inexpensive tool to reliably determine the moisture level of your plant soil. For about 10 euros it beats all available watering indicators.
