    Holiday Shopping and Black Friday Deals

    Holiday shopping and Black Friday Deals can be quite fun. (I prefer online as it is too crazy in person and people should be home with their families and friends).

    I search all over for the best deals for shopping in-store or online whether it is for a friend, family member or myself.

    I think a great gift is a portable battery power bank charger. Most people have cell phones and are always looking for ways to charge them. So why not carry a portable charger.

    Here are a few options by Anker that I like to purchase on Amazon.

    Anker PowerCore Speed 10000mAh, Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 Portable Charger

    Anker Astro E1 5200mAh Candy bar-Sized Ultra Compact Portable Charger

    Look at this Amazon Echo Spot Black Friday Deal.

    End Date: Nov 25, 2018 at 07:00 PM EST

    My favorite stores to do online shopping for electronics are: B&H Photo & Video, Adorama, Best Buy (in-store shopping as well), and Amazon. I also shop directly from the manufacturer. For example: Peak Design, Western Digital, Think Tank, Kelly More Bag, JoTotes, Pura Vida Bracelets, and many more.

    You can see the whole list on my photography website where I list my gear:
    Florida sunrise, photography print, holiday shopping, black friday deals
    If you or someone you know likes art or just wants something that is zen like, then get them this:
    or this size:

    Photographers, Videographers, Travelers, and everyone, you should attach a Tile – key finder, phone finder, or as I call it gear finder, to your packs, cases, suitcases, purses, and really anything, so you always know where your stuff is at via GPS.

    Yes you should always remember where your stuff is but if something gets misplaced, you can track it with Tile. It’s an added safety precaution.

    My favorite t-shirt lyfestyle company LYFE Brand is having a Blackout Week from Monday – Thursday with 40% off. Use checkout code: BLACK40

    GoPro on Peak Design Capture

    Peak Design Capture Clip is an awesome way to quickly be hands-free from your camera. I use it for my GoPro action camera to capture first-person perspective videos and to mount my DSLR when I’m not using a sling.

    It was a cloudy morning but that just added some moodiness to my photos. It looked like it was going to rain out in the Atlantic Ocean.

    I’ve been using my GoPro lately to capture videos of me walking and photographing on the go. It captures my view along with my camera in the shot a few times. I mount the GoPro on my Peak Design – Capture which is on my Peak Design EveryDay Sling Bag or EveryDay Backpack.

    In the video below, I went walking on Hollywood Beach to take some photos of the beach shoreline. I was using my EveryDay Sling to carry an extra lens and accessories. You can see my Nikon DSLR along with a Peak Design tripod plate, BlackRapid Strap, and Misift Vapor Smartwatch.

    The beach had quite a lot of seaweed all along the shore. This is usually not the case for this beach in the past.

    I love watching the shorebirds waiting for food to come up along the shore. They are always so entertaining. They are very aware of their surroundings. They quickly move as someone comes close to them.

    Peak Design Travel Line Backpack

    Peak Design Travel Line Backpack + Packing Tools Gear

    Hi there. Today I’m going to talk about Peak Design‘s latest Kickstarter campaign. It is titled Peak Design The Travel Line: Versatile Travel Backpack + Packing Line. It is a new 45 liter backpack that is perfect for traveling a day trip or even a week trip, depending on how you travel.

    I haven’t seen in person or received mine yet so this is just my review on reading and watching all their videos about this new line. The photos shown are from Peak Design. However, I do own their other products like their EveryDay Backpack and Sling, Field Pouch, Capture Clip, and more. So from experience on their other products, I totally trust their product quality and design.

    *Update October 18th, 2018

    The kickstarter project ended but now you can pre-order here:

    Travel Line Bags

    TRAVEL BACKPACK 45L

    Tech Pouch

    Wash Pouch

    Packing Cube

    Camera Cube

    Shoe Pouch

    Rain Fly

    Peak Design Travel Line Backpack + Packing Tools Gear

    The Travel Line has the following products:

    45L Backpack
    Tech Pouch
    Wash Pouch
    Packing Cubes (small and medium sizes)
    Camera Cubes (small, medium, large)
    Shoe Pouch
    Rain fly

    On their campaign page, they have specs on each one. If you want to know more and see videos, they have that too plus on their YouTube channel.

    The Backpack will hold 3 small packing pouches or 3 small camera cubes. Or it can hold 1 small packing or camera plus 1 medium packing or camera. It can hold 1 large camera pouch.

    The pouches go in the back of the bag for secure access. It is also the main panel of the bag. The front access has smaller organizational panel, which has lots of pockets and expanding volume zipper.

    They really thought this bag out. There are clips to keep the camera pouches in the backpack from slipping if it was a small or medium o. the top. I really like that they added side access doors for the camera pouches so I don’t have to open the whole panel. The fact that the camera pouches can be used in various ways with those dividers really makes happy. It means I can carry all kinds of lenses and cameras.

    I’m really excited for that tech pouch, too. I love carrying all kinds of techy gear with me so being able to have them organized in one spot is amazing. I saw in a video today that they added loops on the outside so I can add anchors to attach my sling.

    Their videos really help show you all kinds of variations you can use this bag and pouches for what you need to travel with. I’ve watched all of them to learn more about this line, even after supporting the campaign. (They may even squeeze in some pro tips in them.)

    There are 2 color options: black and sage. That sage looks really nice. Well black looks good too.

    There are various ways of packing this bag up depending on where you are going, whether you need more clothes or camera gear, plus wash kit, tech pouch and more. This is what makes Peak Design stands out to me. The versatile ways you can use their bags. They might have more gear options towards photographers but their bags can be used without camera gear too, especially this backpack and their everyday line.

    I can’t wait to get this new line so I can use it for traveling and even just for one of my photoshoots. I can even attach their sling to a camera cube and use that by itself.

    If you have been wanting their Everyday 5L sling, they are releasing it in Sage on their kickstarter. That color is really nice and unique from just black.

    I wish I had this bag for my trip earlier this year to Charleston, South Carolina. It would have been perfect for my clothes and camera gear.
