Apple AirPods Review

April 5, 2018

Apple's AirPods are a very interesting product, that I was quite fascinated with, but I always felt the price was too high, but most of all, I found the design a bit of goofy and therefore embarrassing to wear, which was a bit off-putting. Then I got mine as a gift, started using them, and totally changed my opinion about that. Apple announced the AirPods in September 2016 along with the iPhone 7 and started shipping them in December 2017. It's a product that is widely praised for its seamless integration with the iPhone, but is it really that good? Let me share my experience with you.

DSLR cameras outsold compact cameras for the first time, still outselling mirrorless

April 4, 2018



There is this divide among photography enthusiasts, where online warriors place themselves into 2 camps: The mentally unbalanced people who are ardently pro mirrorless (usually Sony fans), and everybody else (people who tend to see things as they are - complex). For the past 5-6 years there is a real mirrorless hype mainly driven by Sony fanboys and their artisans (who are some of the most annoying people on the internet, to be honest).

Top 10 best mid-level luxury watch brands for men

March 31, 2018

After extensive research and vast insider knowledge of the global watch industry, and history of watch making, I made the another important list to ever be made about watches by any website. This is the most correct and definite list about the best and most luxurious mid-level wristwatch brands of all times. I already listed the top 10 best high luxury watch brands for men, the creme de la creme of wristwatches for men. Now this list is meant for people who don't have a 10,000 USD on hand to buy an entry level high luxury watch, but still want a decent brand:

Sony mirrorless still can't compete with Nikon DSLR in weather sealing

March 26, 2018

Despite Sony being praised as the greatest thing since sliced bread by some amateurs, there's still one aspect of photography where Sony falls massively short in comparison with Nikon: Weather sealing. Not only did Sony recently lose several tests related to weather sealing, there are also not many Sony lenses to choose from, if you're into extreme weather wildlife photography like Morten Hilmer, a Danish photographer and vlogger, who brought his Nikon D5 into the Danish forest in a blizzard (see photos and video below), and the camera held up very well. Sony's Alpha system is still incomplete and notorious for having bad build quality, and often fail when taken to some extreme weather conditions, either hot or cold (several photographers have shared that on Youtube).

Two Youtube camera reviews: One is real, the other one sounds like a Sony advertisement

March 23, 2018

It's really interesting how vast and how complex the Youtube photography gear review community is. Every day I discover something new, and today I came across a new channel named Fenchel & Janisch, who is run by a German videographer. The quality of that channel is amazing, actually stunning. So are some of the videos they are producing with the gear they review (currently the Fuji X-H1). On the other hand there is Tony Northrup, a Youtuber who was brought to Las Vegas by Sony to "review" the new Sony A7III, an overpriced consumer camera, which he has touted as the camera that will "revolutionize wedding and portrait photography". He also claimed in a separate video, that Sony has double the image quality of the as well newly launched Fuji X-H1. Watch both "review" videos, and then judge for yourself who is a more credible source of buying decision. The difference is obvious: One is real, the other one sounds like an advertisement.

Top 10 best high luxury watch brands for men

March 22, 2018

After extensive research and vast insider knowledge of the global watch industry, and history of watch making, I made the most important list to ever be made about watches by any website. This is the most correct and definite list about the best and most luxurious wristwatch brands of all times, and it's not up to debate whether some of these positions are justified, because I'm quite sure I am right. I'm one of the most relevant watch experts in Taiwan right now, offering my services for extremely high charges to rich people, but I decided to post some of that here for free for my numerous readers. So this is my list of best luxury brands in the world:
