So this is just a quick post in regards to my new website cruisncanada.com
JustGoShoot has been a great place for me to play with my blogging, but my interests are moving over to my new site. This site will deal with some of the things that this site dealt with including a lot of photography and videography topics. The biggest thing though will be the inclusion of motorcycle gear, reviews, rides and whatever else that is or has anything to do with my motorcycle riding.
So I hope you come join me over there. I look forward to hearing from you all.
So my wife bought the Emerson Action Cam for me as a gift. It was cheap, and to be honest my expectations were not very high for a $40 action camera that I was going to mount on my motorcycle while riding.
So lets be quick and to the point. Is that worth the $40? To be honest thats a much harder question to answer. Take a look at the footage below. The camera when mounted to a motorcycle has a very strong and dominant wobble. And that may be somewhat due to the fact the the camera isn’t all that “wide” in what it captures. Or maybe its just because its a cheap camera. If the footage below is good enough for you then its $40 well spent. On an 8 gig card you can record up to 40 minutes and to be honest I don’t know how much more then that you could record as the internal battery seems to only be able to hold a charge for maybe a little bit longer.
Other then mounting on a motorcycle I really don’t know it would hold up to using it on lets say a bicycle, or surfing or whatever else you would throw at it. The case seems strong and the unit itself is nice and light. If you can find this camera at a store that has a return policy then that would be good so that you can test it out for whatever purpose you have in mind for this device.
As for me … Well I intend to use this camera to record whats happening behind me and to save up and by a GoPro for the front.
So there you have it. The Emerson Action Cam. My recommendation is to Try before you Buy.

So ive finally received my new Dolica tripod. Haven’t really had the time to give it a vigorous test, but none the less I have played with it.
Anyways because of the videos length I have split the video review into two parts. Please let me know if you have any questions in regards to it.
So Canon has the new 6D and Nikon has the new D600. So when you just look at the specs it kinda looks like the Nikon should completely dominate this competition. But is that how it goes down? Watch the video below to see how the two cameras compare.
So I broke my Sigma 17-70 lens. So So Sad. And it was completely my fault. Any ways I have replace it with a Tamron 17-50 lens. Check out my video below to see what I think of the new lens.
So yesturday I posted a video review of the iOS app Filmic Pro. Once of the features that I really liked was the stabilizer. Now since the video i was showing was being screen captured there was a fair bit of quality loss. So today I went and hooked my iPhone to my mount in my car. Drove around and recorded it, to see how well the stabilizer within Filmic Pro worked. Pretty good indeed. Anyways take a look and let me know what you think.
So I came across this cool app called Filmic Pro for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and I must say that it is pretty cool. If you use your iPhone or iPad to do video recording this may turn into your ‘GO TO App’. I must say that this will probably be the app that I use most for video recording on the iPhone.
So check out my video review. Hope you like.
