Hello, everybody! I know it’s been so long since my last post, but thank you again for being patient with me as I enter the final two weeks before finally getting on that flight to South Korea. I have so many posts to catch up on, but please bear with me as I’ll have amazing content to share with you all soon! I’m in the midst of planning a full day trip around Seoul for my friend Yasania and I since it will be her first time there. I’m not going to say where or what I’m planning because I’m keeping it a surprise (she’s subscribed via email to my blog so I can’t mention it here!). Let’s just say that I know she will love it. Anyways, I thought I’d do a quick post showing you guys some new tech goodies I got to capture my upcoming experiences in Korea and up my blog game!
I purchased the Canon G7 X Mark II Video Creator Kit, which came with a Manfrotto Pixi tripod, an extra battery, and a 32GB Ultra SD card from SanDisk along with the camera strap, battery, and charger that are included as part of the main camera kit. I also bought some self-adhesive Velcro and a lavalier microphone windscreen to make my own camera mic windscreen. Not showed in the photo above is a tempered glass screen protector for the camera’s touchscreen. I did purchase another SD card because I felt that 32GB was not going to cut it, especially since I plan on vlogging, too. I picked up a 128GB Ultra SD card from SanDisk. I didn’t go with Extreme or Extreme Pro because I personally preferred to save the $20 and felt that I wouldn’t mind the extra time put into transferring and processing. I gave the 32GB SD card to my dad so he could replace the 8GB one he uses for his DSLR.
So, if you notice a difference in picture quality on my blog soon, you know why! I’ll still be using my old camera (the camera from my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+) from time to time, but look forward to better quality pictures here on my blog!
I tested out the video recording feature on the G7 X and it’s so good. The in-camera stabilization is ridiculously smooth, so look forward to better vlogs over on YouTube as well!
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this! I hope you have an amazing week! Until next time,
