FeiyuTech Bluetooth Remote Review

Published

on

In this video we are taking a closer look at the FeiyuTech Bluetooth Remote. For my demonstration I will be using the remote with the FeiyuTech G5 and the WG 2 however the remote is compatible with most of the FeiyuTech gimbals and as stated on their page it will also remain compatible with future gimbals that have not yet been released.

Why do you need a remote for a gimbal? well for the most part you don’t. Most of the time when we use gimbals we are holding them or have them mounted and all functions of the gimbal are within reach on the handle. However there are those times when a remote can come in handy. For example if you have your FeiyuTech gimbal mounted on a vehicle while driving and you want to change the angle, you can simply use the joystick on the remote to adjust it without having to get out of the vehicle. This can be useful for un-interrupted footage or nice smooth panning motions. A second scenario would be if you have your gimbal mounted on a helmet while mountain biking. It would be inconvenient to remove the helmet every time you wanted to re position the camera, with the Bluetooth remote you can change modes and angles on the fly.

The FeiyuTech Bluetooth remote is one of those accessories that you will not use on a regular basis but it does definitely come in handy from time to time. The fact that it works with most FeiyuTech products also makes it a great value. No need to buy a remote for every gimbal you own.

This easy to follow beginners guide will help you understand the menu system and the different shooting modes. The new Hero 2018 is a great camera for beginners as it has a simplified menu with basic shooting modes.

Best Memory Card for the new GoPro Hero 2018

There are many types and sizes of memory cards on the market that will work with the new GoPro Hero 2018 but to keep things simple I recommend the Lexar 633x it is a great memory card at a decent price and I have always had good luck with them.  You can choose how much storage you would like the most common is 32 GB or 64 GB. This determines how many photos and videos can be stored on the camera.

Must Have $10 Upgrade For Your GoPro

Published

on

If you own a GoPro this is a very inexpensive must have upgrade that everyone needs. One annoyance that I have had with my GoPro is having to remove it from the frame every time I want to charge it or plug in a microphone. With this 3rd party GoPro frame you can open and remove the charging door on your GoPro without having to remove it from the frame, saving a lot of time and aggravation. This frame also seems to be a better build quality than the stock frames, it has a nice rubberized coating. This is such a simple little fix, I wonder why GoPro has not implemented it yet on their official frames. Because they all have the same form factor this 3rd party frame is compatible with the Hero 5 Black, Hero 6 Black and the new GoPro Hero (2018).
