These are 5 hacks I use all the time for more creative photos and videos. Whether you need to remove or draw focus away from distracting objects, or just want to enhance and get more creative with your images, these 5 things can be used with any camera and lens to make some fun, interesting, and dynamic photos and videos.
These are my 2 favorite Sony E mount to Canon EF mount adapters so I wanted to put them head to head to see which one is the best for the new Sony A6300 and to test autofocus performance with each adapter. Check out the results in the video after the break!

While drone sales have been increasing at breathtaking speeds, DJI has been one of the few manufactures setting the standard for quality in both drone technology and camera image quality for these aerial UAVs. The DJI Phantom 4 Pro does exactly that with a new camera boasting a larger 1” 20MP sensor capable of 4k video at up to 60fps! But the Phantom 4 Pro is more than just a camera upgrade with a host of new sensors, longer maximum range & flight time, new autonomous mode, speed increase, and more. So let’s take a look at DJI’s newest drone option.

The 3Pod Orbit tripod is probably the coolest tripod I've ever used. With a telescoping center, this tripod has so many uses up its sleeve. In addition, the quality and fit & finish seemed top notch. It's available in both aluminum and as a carbon fiber tripod so check out this tripod review for details.
