Kodak Pixpro 4KVR360 – A World in 360 Degrees

As I travel, as I hike, contrary to popular belief I do not continuously carry a whole load of cumbersome photography equipment and big cameras. It is often I head out with a camera yes, for those impromptu or quick walks and adventures. It is always handy though to have a small compact camera for capturing those moments and places that you may encounter. Capturing the world in 4K and 360 degrees is much better and easier now with the Kodak Pixpro 4KVR360. In the US it is also known as the Kodak Pixpro Orbit. You may have seen...

A House Festival Experience with Samsung and Three

Marble Hill House was the venue for me last week, and a venue for a special day indeed! The House Festival was taking place and I had been very kindly invited by Samsung and Three to experience it.

GoPro Animals on My Travels and Wanders

The Gopro is one piece of kit I carry with me most of the time. Local walks or high climbs sometimes prohibit the want to carry a proper camera around or carry a backpack.

A perfect travel companion – Olympus OM-D

I am asked so so often about my travels and how I get about and update social media and the blog, but one theme comes up quite a lot… What kit/clothing/cameras do you use Paul? I thought it would be easier to explain here (with more than 140 characters available) in a series, so welcome to the new ‘Kit’ section. And where better to start than with a big tool that gets hammered on the road, the camera. That is easy, at present I am never far away from my Olympus OM-D E-M5. So many reasons why it is...
