FeiyuTech Charging Handle Review

Published

on

In this video, we are taking a closer look at the charging handle by FeiyuTech. Not only does this handle give you extra power to your FeiyuTech gimbals such as the G5, G6, G6 Plus and WG2 it also acts as a bit of an extension to give you that little extra reach. This charging handle has a nice sleek design and matches the look and feel of you FeiyuTech gimbal perfectly. There is a built-in 3000 mAh battery that doubles the life of your gimbals internal battery. Since it essentially is a power bank it can also be used to charge your other USB devices such as your phone or GoPro.

When used in conjunction with a GoPro it acts as a nice grip and when attached to your GoPro and can almost triple the amount of recording time and allow you to get a full day of recording when out adventuring. I do recommend picking up a shorter micro USB cable or USB-C cable (for GoPro’s), that will prevent bulky and dangling cables. However, you can use any cables you do have lying around.

Shark Cage for GoPro Hero 5/6/7 Black

Published

on

In this video review, we are taking a closer look at the Shark Cage frame for the GoPro Hero 5/6/7 Black. In the past, I have reviewed several aluminum frames for GoPro’s. These frames are useful for a few different reasons. Firstly they offer great protection. The tough aluminum build protects your GoPro from drops or when filming in situations where the camera may take some knocks. However, the most common reason for using an aluminum frame is the fact that it has a built-in cold shoe and it makes it easy to attach a microphone to your GoPro rig. There is one drawback to these aluminum frames and that is they are heavy, these frames can add a lot of weight to your setup.

This is where the GoPro Shark Cage is different, it is a minimalist aluminum frame that still offers good protection and only weighs a fraction of the others. The GoPro Shark Cage has a cheese plate included in the pack with several tripod connections. You can mount this cheese plate in many different ways on the Shark Cage. There is no cold shoe included in the package and it will need to be purchased separately. I have included links to the products used in the video.

GoPro Vlogging Case | How To Connect A Microphone To The GoPro Hero 7 Black

Published

on

In this video review, we are taking a closer look at a new style of casie for the GoPro Hero 5/6/7 Black that is aimed at vloggers. This new style of case or as some would call it “housing” has a built-in cavity that can hold the GoPro microphone adapter. When connecting a microphone to the Hero 7 Black you must use GoPro’s microphone adapter which for the most part is a big brick. In the past when you set up a GoPro vlogging rig you would have this adapter hanging off the back and it would always be in the way. There are some DIY methods for managing all these cables and adaptors but they really just were not all that convenient.

A few months ago these new styles of GoPro vlogging cases with a built-in microphone adapter holder started popping up on Amazon and eBay. I ordered one in to take a look at it and I really was quite impressed and wondered why it took so long for someone to come up with this idea. The other necessary component when setting up a GoPro Vlogging rig is you need a way to attach your microphone, most commonly this is called a cold shoe. In the past, there have been many offerings of aluminum GoPro cases that had a built in cold shoe and for the most part, they have always worked well (except dangle mic adapter). The downside to these cases is they were quite heavy and added a lot of bulk to your rig. This new style of vlogging case is made of durable plastic and is significantly lighter. They also feature a raised cold shoe for connecting a microphone, this raised cold shoe helps keep the microphone out of the GoPro’s wide field of view.
