Treat of the week - Osmo Pocket Accessories
I must admit, I have a bit of an Amazon addiction. I have been fighting it for some time now, but I thought if I can't beat it, then let's make a video about it and embrace my addiction. I find all sorts of weird and wonderful gadgets that make life just that little bit easier on the trail when out backpacking.
I purchased an Osmo Pocket Gimbal as a Christmas present to myself and since then I have been using it on all of my backpacking trips and Adventure Geek walks. It is a good vlogging tool, but I mainly use it for B-roll. This week, I purchased a new selfie stick, which I can add a tripod and has an Osmo Pocket Mount on the top. I can get shots that look like a drone flying (even though I also have a DJI Spark Drone!) - but this is much easier and quicker to use.
In the video, I also show you my Osmo pocket backpacking clip and my iPhone holster for quick vlogging access on the trail.
Treat of the week - SD Card Holder
When you are on a long distance trail and vlogging as you go, it can get confusing as to which video is for which day. I like to use one sd card in my Osmo pocket (and drone) per day. I then label them accordingly so that the footage does not get mixed up. This week, I ordered a lightweight SD card holder. It is dinky and fits in my wallet (or pocket in my journal), and will hold up to 8 SD cards. I can label the holder for each day which certainly makes life easier.
