Review Of Puregear Universal Car Mount

I have been doing some videos where record my route while driving.  these videos have been doing very well.  The response is great.  So It has encouraged me to do more videos like these.

The first two videos I did my husband drove while I held my camera to record our route. It was a bit tiring and a bit uncomfortable for me and at the end of the trip my shoulders were sore.

In the next two videos, I decided to make a trip on my own as my husband has to work.  But I need a way to record my route so I found a mini tripod that I got when I purchased my Canon EOS M100 camera and I was able to mount it on the dashboard of my vehicle.

So I decided to purchase a mount for my windshield and got a Puregear Universal Car Mount that I purchased in my local store. Purchase price US$45.00.  The package also contained a mount for the air vent.

Items in the box were:

Photos Of Scary Spiders Just In Time For Halloween 2019

I saw these spiders today just by accident just outside the front of my house.  So I went back into the house and attached three close up filters (+10, +1, +4) to my Canon EOS M100 camera and returned to get these awesome photos!!!  Just in time for the Halloween!!  Look at the spider web in the next photo!!!

I have recently been using the Photos application on my desktop and I find it is quite helpful.  When I double click on any photo, there is an edit and create option.  There I was able to crop these photos to get the results you see in this post.  On another occasion, I took a photo of a friend of mine and the photo had a white wash look to it.  I was able to edit the photos and get a result that I was very pleased with.

4 Tips For Photo Field Trip

In this post I share with you 4 things to do before your next photography field trip.

On my last field trip, I made a visit to Mt. Healthy Tortola, British Virgin Islands, I took my Canon EOS M100 camera with me but left my cell phone at home.  During my session, I ran out of storage space on the memory card on my camera.  I had to delete some of the videos to make space.  Luckily I had already downloaded these videos to my computer.

On another trip to The Pottery Garden Josiahs Bay Tortola British Virgin Islands, this time I took my cell phone and not my Canon EOS M100 camera.  And again, I did not have enough space on my cell phone to get much footage but enough to make a video that I was kind of satisfied with.

So after these two mishaps, I decided to share with you some things to do before going on your next photo field trip.
  1. Carry a back up equipment to take photos
  2. Make sure that both pieces of equipment has adequate  storage space to record  your videos and photos.  Maybe  for your camera, you can take an extra memory card with you and extra battery for the camera if you have one.
  3. Make sure that these pieces of equipment are fully charged
  4. Pack your camera bag with all your gear the night before so the next day, all you have to do is to grab your camera bag and head on out!!!
