Joby Pro Sling Strap

In recognition of National Photography Month, today I’m taking a look at the Joby Pro Sling camera strap. The Pro Sling Strap is Joby’s top-of-the-line sling strap and offers more convenience and comfort than the neck straps that typically come with DSLR or compact system cameras. After having spent a few weeks with it, it’s all I use now.

Olloclip 4-in-15 Stars

Olloclip has another trick up its sleeve. Using the same form factor and quality that made its 3-in-1 lens so popular, but adding another macro option and improved optics, Olloclip is looking to one-up itself.

Timbuk2 Informant

Depending on how much you use your DSLR, you probably have more than one bag or case for it. If you want to carry several lenses, a tripod, multiple bodies, large flashes, and more, you probably have a large backpack, or perhaps the Timbuk2 Snoop messenger. But what about when you want to carry just a couple of lenses and a single body? Do you bring the large backpack with you? Probably not, right? The Timbuk2 Informant camera sling is a miniature camera messenger bag, complete with padded, customizable walls and a waterproof rain cover. Foregoing the typical camera bag appearance, it protects your gear in style without sacrificing function. It’s currently my preferred camera bag for everyday use.

ATC Chameleon

In April, my wife approached me about doing a mud race. For those who aren’t familiar with a mud race, it’s basically a 5K with roughly 20 obstacles throughout the course, most of them ending with the participant getting soaked, in mud, from head to toe. There are mud pits you have to run through, and there are mud pits you have to army-crawl through.

I had never attempted to run a 5K, let alone one full of basic training-like obstacles. Actually, I haven’t ran consistently (actually that should read “ran at all”) in the last 8 years. But against my better judgement, I decided to do it. Why not? “It will be a fun experience” I told myself.

Back in March, my wife had completed her first 5K/mud race, and I was there along the entire course with my camera documenting her and her team’s triumphs and joy as each obstacle was overcame. But with the race we were about to embark upon, the camera man (me) was going to be getting down and dirty, leaving us picture-less.

Luckily, I was presented with the opportunity to review the ATC Chameleon, a dual-lens action camera made by Oregon Scientific. The camera can be mounted to your body, allowing you to capture 340-degree video of your current activity.

I use my iPhone camera, a lot, as you guys know by now. So when I upgraded to the iPhone 5, I knew I was going to miss out on some key accessories, but I trusted production of the accessories I would be giving up wouldn’t be too far behind. The holidays were fast approaching, after all.

The Olloclip, a 3-in-1 lens for the iPhone 4/4S was one such accessory I had to give up. Last week I was reunited with my favorite iPhone accessory, and I’m thrilled. Here’s what I think of the Olloclip for the iPhone 5.
