Kinden Travel Adapter with Built In 6000mAh Power Bank

Recently I was browsing the Amazon website looking for travel adapters which will come in handy when we do go away for our Summer holiday. I noted that there was the Kinden travel adapter with 2 USB charging ports and a built-in 6000 mAh power bank. This retails normally for £24.00 but I managed to buy this for £19.20 from their Lightning deals. Continue reading Kinden Travel Adapter with Built In 6000mAh Power Bank

Neewer 360 Rotation Panorama Head with remote

One of the things I would like to do is shoot panoramas of places I visit either with my iPhone or 4K video with the GoPro Hero 5 Black. So the brief for this purchase was – it had to be compact and light, have motorised control for panning the device and be relatively inexpensive. In the end I bought the Neewer version as it was available for £25.49 (RRP £29.99) with Amazon lightning deal. Continue reading Neewer 360 Rotation Panorama Head with remote

Oriental Chives – for insect bites

Recently I was bitten by an insect (don’t know which though) at the back of my left foot.

GoPro Seeker Backpack

Now I have bought many different camera bags in my lifetime, as I have never found a camera bag that could meet all my needs – particularly as the needs and the gear are ever changing. With the purchase of the GoPro Hero 5 black with Karma Grip, I needed to find a bag which had a built-in mount for the GoPro, and which would work well with the Karma Grip but still hold the other camera equipment I am likely to bring around. I did consider the Peak Design 20L/30L Backpack, but because of the features and price I finally settled on the GoPro Seeker backpack instead. Bought from Amazon.co.uk for £89.99.

Carolina Reaper Chilli

When I was walking down the aisle of Tesco supermarket browsing the spice section, I noted that they had packs of the Carolina Reaper chilli available for purchase. One of the things I do like to do is to buy things to try with my wife. And Carolina Reaper being one of the hottest chilli in the world (and in fact was the hottest chilli in the world a while ago), I felt it was worth a try. Continue reading Carolina Reaper Chilli
