A channel for creators

Hi Creators, my name is Dirk,

I'm reviewing gear for creators, hands on. No stock images, it's all real.

Real tests, real results. You get my unbiased opinion.

To keep it interesting I change locations a lot and try to give you new impressions and new images with each review

I have to make a decision

I bought both cameras, the Sony A7C II and the Sony A6700 

Now I will have to sell one of them. Which one? This is a hands on comparison, pointing out features and categories - sometimes a bit unusual but practical - and I assign points for each

in which one of the cameras outshines the other. 

What am I doing? 

Lately I enjoy very much creating small clips of my photo shoots. 

I think I'll keep doing this. 

Now I am testing the Sony 20mm f/1.8 G lens It currently retails at $898, definitely not a cheap lens. So I have high expectations. 

iFootage offered me to send me their latest super light weight carbon fiber travel tripod. As soon as I get it I will make a video and give you my unbiased opinion.

My latest reviews:

The Meike 50mm f/1.8 is an autofocus Full Frame lens. It used to retail for under $160, now the price is up by $10 and it currently costs $169.99 

Front Filter size is 58mm. It has 9 blades, giving us an ok bokeh. 

But where it really shines is the overall image quality.

Already wide open we see an impressive center sharpness, good colors and contrast.

It is great for street photography and for portraits. 

The minimum focusing distance is 2.1 ft / 63 cm 

The optical design is 11 elements in 7 groups. because of it's price and performance it comes  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

The Zhiyun Molus X60 RGB is a 60 Watt COB LED light in pocket size. With a range from 2700 - 6500 K, a TLCI of 97, CRI 96, it is completely flicker-free and super travel friendly. 

Fan noise can be an issue for film makers - I tested it in the video. 

You can completely operate this light from the ZY Vega App on your phone

Release Date March 25 2024

The BOYAMIC is a wireless microphone system with 2 transmitters and 1 receiver. It can be connected to cameras, Android phones and Apple devices. It comes in a charging case and 2 Lavalier mics. The range of 900ft/300 Meter is impressive and the audio quality is much better than expected for a system in this price range. 

In this very unusual test I try to decide, which is the best Travel combo to take on my next trip: the Sony a6100 with the Sony 18-135mm or the Sony A7 RIV with the Tamron 28-200mm
