Canon Legria Mini X – a first look.

A few weeks back, when I was in Hamburg for a Canon launch event, we were given the opportunity to be part of two workshops and test a variety of cameras. The one camera though that interested me the most was the successor of the Canon Legria Mini that I wrote about a while back. So I decided to run around all day and shoot with the Legria Mini X instead of anything else.

Whats in my bag / Every day carry

A long long time ago when the geeks still thought tht Flickr was cool and we regularly were hanging out in the Flickr Groups a, let’s call it, phenomenon came up and manifested itself, first in one and then in several groups call “What’s in my bag”. I guess you can call it a form of voyeurism. People showing the inner livings of their bags. Handbags, backpacks and so on. Even the occasional fanny pack. From books, to weapons, to headphones, mp3 players and on and on. You get the idea. Of course as humans are, you will find the…

Gear – Canon Legria Mini

When Canon announced the Legria Mini a few month back, I was very skeptical. In a time where most mobile phones produce great video and we always have them with us, why would we need a dedicated video camera for blogging at home and on the go? Well… on the one hand because we might need our phones for so much more than just recording video. I mean they can be our voice recorder on productions, or being needed to read off your lines of them etc. etc. A lot of people use GoPros to shoot themselves, as the video…

A bottle of Cardhu – from friends for friends

Cardhu Whiskey started its history back in 1824 when the smuggler John Cumming founded the distillery. In its long history a lot happened from cooperations with other big brands to wars and problems with the public perception. Nowadays Cardhu is back to its old glory and one thing that has not changed is the hospitality and charity. Back in the day every visitor was offered a glass of Cardhu and to carry on the tradition the agency started to share a bottle of Cardhu with friends, who in return not only shared their bottle with friends, but also recommend one…

First look – Canon G16

Canon Germany sent me a beautiful new G16 to give a shot and see what I think of it. It’s been quite some time I had a camera like this in my hands. The first G I encountered was the G9 and at that time I hadn’t seen or used no other camera like it. Price, features, quality size were basically unmatched. The next one I remember really hearing of was the G11. I know there was a G1X something and so on. Times have changed a lot since 2007. Mobile phones have been slashing at the small camera market…

#mbrt13 – rollin rollin rollin

It is our third day and we are on the Interstate 40 towards Amarillo as I am writing this post. I wanted to post way before this post, but we have been quite busy and get less sleep than anticipated, so the time that I am awake after driving the legs of our road trip I mostly use for importing and backing up all the footage. If you want to stay completely up to date you should check my Twitter, Flickr and YouTube channel as I post to those daily and from the road. Our connectivity is not always given,…
