I found this Conman Flexible Camera Tripod online ( https://amzn.to/2JCLFtR ). I needed a small travel flexible tripod for my my vlogging with my phone and camera.

I have been using it for over 2 weeks and like the compact yet durable tripod. Starting from the legs, they are metal wire legs covered with rubber. I bend them for a lower tripod height or to use them to grip a pole or branch. The legs are sturdy. The only complaint would be the base of the 3 legs do not spread wide enough and are plastic. This makes it hard to wrap objects that are wider than 4 inches. On the side of the legs base is a 1/4 inch mount for accessories. Pretty useful if you have needed to add a mic or light accessory to your vlogging rig.

I love the ball head mount. Its all metal base and ball head is very well built. It holds my 2 pound DSLR as well as my cell phone camera without sliding. The top base mount has a 1/4 inch mount and a hidden fold out smart phone holder. The smartphone holder is large enough for my 6.9 inch Samsung Note S20 Ultra to fit in as well my other cell phones. The 1/4 inch mount fits most cameras and dslrs. The issue with the 1/4 inch mount is the lack of tightening knob. I basically can have to twist the base mount against my DSLR to tighten, which may mar the base labeling of my camera or mount at an incorrect angle.

I also had issues removing the 1/4 mount off the ball mount. Coman must have put thread lock or glue in the 1/4 inch mount. Even wrenching it with my hands i was not able to loosen it from the ball mount.

The kit came with a bluetooth remote trigger. Hold down the single button for 5 seconds to pair it with a smart phone. It basically calls the down volume key to trigger the smart phone to take a picture or start video recording. Simple and effective. The only problem is the lack of a easy way to open the remote to replace the battery. There are not visible slots. I guess i will have to deal with it when the battery expires.

Overall, this is a good tripod with flexible legs. Definitely more heavy duty than plastic grip tripods. I actually bought 3 of them, one for my camera, and two for lighting.

REVIEW: SAMSUNG Galaxy BUDS+ (Plus) – Works with Insta360 ONE R!

I bought the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ ( https://amzn.to/3qmxKc6 ) in a beautiful sexy red ear buds. I got red because it was easier to find in a bag at the gym than black. I also got Wireless Charging Base 10W ( https://amzn.to/3oizTUC ) for my Samsung BUDS+ )  for my Samsung BUDS+. These buds are discreet compact comfortable and have greater noise cancelling, and 11 hour playback time. Great for commuting or working out. The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are about $100 to $149 depending on the sale. I got them during Black Friday sale for $109. Is it worth it?

The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ is very good in terms of noise cancelling, customization, and comfort. For the ball park $100 price tag, its affordable and offers the best bang for the dollar performance in passive noise cancelling. The ear wings and ear plugs pads are very comfortable an block all the sound around you. It has three microphones to pickup noise and filters noise during conference calls. Samsung Galaxy Buds+ also uses the mics as with ambient sound settings let you listen ambient sound in 3 different levels.

. You will need the Samsung Wearables app to unlock many advanced features of the Galaxy Buds+ including customizing ambient sound, sound equalizer, touch control settings, and updating software. The LABs feature offer a volume control by tapping the edge of the buds, this is a very cool function that frees up the touch pad for other functions such as calling Google assistant or changing ambient sound.

The sound quality is very good and clean. It was cleaner and warmer than the Sound Core Life P2 or Life Q30 i reviewed earlier. Telephone conference calls were clear as people on the other end were able to hear me clearly.

Insta360 ONE R – Airpod mode works very well with the with the Samsung Galaxy Buds+. In fact it was one of the best sounding recording test from all the buds i have tested with the Insta360 ONE R AirPod mode. Good clean audio better than SoundCore Life Q30, Life P2, and slightly better than the Sony WH1000 MX3 sound recording. . It was able to sync and record my voice in mono to the Insta360.

Overall, I am very impressed with the comfort, sound quality, passive noise cancelling quality, and ease of use of the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ . They are compact, great sounding, have 11 hours of runtime, comfortable, and actually sexy in red and other stylish colors.

Adding Ambient Accent Mood Lighting – RGB LED Strip Tape Light -50 ft ( iVAOOZE ) $38 – UNBOX | REVIEW

After adding more car ambient lighting, I wanted to add some ambient lighting in my home so I bought RGB LED Light Strip -50 ft ( iVAOOZE ) $38 ( https://amzn.to/36YA9CI ) to test out, unbox and review.

The 50 feet 12volt RGB led lighting strip is powered by large AC adapter. There are 3 rolls of 16 feet led lighting which can be chained together. It is controlled by a small controller and power splitter that has microphone for lighting effects that changes with music beats.

The controller also saves the last programmed function and settings. You can program it with the IR remote or with the app on a smart phone via Bluetooth. I programmed mine to be scheduled to run during night hours with an amber white light glow for my couch. I experimented with adding it to my stairway handles and closet.

After programming, I no longer needed the application on my phone and removed it. The controller still can get signals from the IR remote when its ON. For my controller, when its set to be scheduled to a certain time, it SOMETIMES locks out the IR remote.

This can be good and bad. The good is that no one can change it later and mess up your settings. The bad I will need to use the smartphone app to change the program. and it was not consistent with the IR remote control override lock out.

PROS:

  • Easy setup with 3 rolls of 16 ft RGB LED lighting.
  • Can be daisy chained
  • Good mood ambient lighting
  • AC powered
  • IR remote control has many control options ( timed on/off, lighting color and fade effects, light levels, and music beat effects.
  • Advanced programming can be done via Bluetooth with their smart phone App: Scheduled on / off time, RGB light levels and settings, music beat control from phone, via APP. Once programmed the controller keeps the setting.

CONS:

  • Only one programable controller in package ( You will need to buy another kit if you want light in a different room grouping).
  • No IR remote reset button for advanced programming – you need to use their app to update.
  • Inconsistent override with IR remote.

Overall this kit is fun and simple to experiment with and has potential for future DIY projects by cutting up and soldering the cable later. If you are planning to make a whole room or area one lighting setting this will work. If you want to add different colors and lighting scenes, you will need multiple kits or more advanced kits with different scenes. There are also other LED RGB strip lights that work off of Wifi and smart assistants ( https://amzn.to/2H5WYcD ).
