Hrfun Cell Phone Holder For Car Dashboard Clip Review

On my YouTube channel I have a few videos in which I drive around Tortola British Virgin Islands.  The very first video I did was and still is very popular on my channel - I drove around Road Town Tortola, actually my husband drove and I did the recording using my Canon EOS M100 camera.  

On another trip we drove from Road Town to West End (on the southern coast road).  It was a tiring trip for me as I held my camera sturdy while my husband drove, at the end my shoulders and back were tired.

With the purchase of my Canon EOS M100 camera there was a mini tripod in the kit so I decided to use it to mount my cell phone and set up on the dashboard of my car.  The dashboard of my car has a groove where I can set the tripod.  This set up worked okay until I drove over the hills and the tripod fell out of position.  Occasionally I had to hold the tripod in place to prevent it from falling out.  

I tried getting footage this way because I didn't want to bother my husband plus it was very tiring to hold the camera sturdy for long periods whole he drove.  I purchased a cell phone mount for the windshield but the phone vibrated while I drove and I was not pleased with the footage.  Relocating these mounts is always a problem for me as they don't stick on to the windshield as good as the first time.

On my trip to Trinidad at the end of 2019, I purchased a web cam as I thought this was the best solution for me but unfortunately I damaged the compartment that stores the sd card.

Recently I purchased a Hrfun Cell Phone Holder For Car Dashboard Clip.  I chose those one as I know that there is a section on my vehicle dashboard that can facilitate a clip like this.  Its a simple design which allows me to position my cell phone at different angles to get the view that I want.  

I am loving this cell phone clip, recording videos while driving is so much easier now.  I can even clip the cell phone onto my steering wheel and so a selfie recording.  On one occasion I did a selfie recording with the clip attached onto the dashboard but the steering wheel was in front my face.  But I still went ahead and did the recording.  See the video below to see what I am talking about.  

My only problem now is as my cell phone is set up on my dashboard to record, after about 15-20 minutes, the temperature on my dashboard gets very hot - my phone as well and stops recording.

Iguana Sunbathing - Tortola British Virgin Islands

Yesterday I went to hand out my laundry and I passed my buddy without seeing him (I don't know how to identify the males from the female as yet).  It was only when I was on my way back into the the house I saw same familiar colours in the corner of my eye and I was looking in the usual spot when I see these iguanas.  When I eventually refocused my eyes, the iguana was right in front of me out of his usual spot!!

This photo was taken before the one above.  I did not want to add it to my gallery because of the ugly mop but its a great photo.  You can see the length of the iguana and him leaving his 'home'.

He likes to leave the confines of his 'home', walk through the porch and go over to the piece of land on the other side of the house.  Maybe he went looking for food or check out his other friends!

Red Flamboyant Tree In Full Bloom - Beef Island, British Virgin Islands

After taking those magnificent photos in my last post of the flamboyant tree with yellow flowers, I went on a hunt to find a tree with the red flowers and found this tree in full bloom on Beef Island British Virgin Islands, near the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport.
