360 Degrees of York with The Kodak Pixpro SP360 4K Duo

Whenever get a new piece of camera equipment I love to get out and about experimenting with it. The Kodak SP360 4K Duo was even more exciting due to the far reaching capabilities of what it can do both photographically and creatively. 360 photo and video is starting to take off more and more with the advent of VR. Fully immersive videos are now easily accomplished with kit like this, enabling the viewer to see in every direction as the video goes. Also in photos you can see in every direction too, up, down, left and right. a full...

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. The Gopro is so small it fits into my pocket very easily for those, you never know, moments. It gives me so much adaptability over the smartphone camera use. You have seen what can be done even in your own garden from the GardenCam articles so far. Of course being out in the countryside so much I come across animals small and large. Quite often...

Sun, fun & Smiles at the GoPro Mountain Games

Recently I had the pleasure of being invited to the GoPro Mountain Games in Vail, Colorado! A huge 4 day competition and celebration of adventure sports, with lots more going on around. Music, arts and outdoor fun taking place around the events happening on the river, on the mountains and in the village. Of course all the action was taken using GoPro Hero 4s and there was plenty of opportunity to do so. Your browser does not support the video tag. As well as taking part in some adventure myself with some great people, there was plenty of time to...

Gardencam highlights – Pre Spring

It has been very much an experiment that seems to be improving as I go along. Moving home has been an interruption of course but every now and then I give it a try. Set the GoPro up in various spots around the garden and see what happens. The great thing about using a GoPro in this way, rather than going for the exquisite photos with a long zoom lens, is that you get a close up with a wide angle, not just a zoom in on a bird. It gives a whole different dimension to the photos and...

Action in London with the GoPro Hero4

New toy, new kit, new perspective for future adventures. The new GoPro cameras have been announced (GoPro hero4) and the capabilities along with possibilities for my future wanderings have increased enormously, some of which I will explain here for sure. Thank you to the kind people at GoPro I have been testing them out and as you can see around this post we went straight into action around Shoreditch, London, for some adrenalin amongst the street art. It is not often you take a camera out of the box then immediately find yourself on the streets with one of the world’s...

A Smartphone fit for purpose: Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

Another question that arises in my stream, especially when I am sharing live pictures as I travel on the go, to Twitter, Google Plus etc. ‘What phone are you using Paul’? Well, I must admit I have been experimenting a lot lately to find what I need. For me I have a need list of: Powerful: My phone is my office. Opening, switching between email, camera, video, photos, and apps – especially Social Media apps, needs to be fast. Size and durability: I hike and trek up mountains for a living, in all weathers, all terrains. I travel in minus temperatures at high altitudes...
