Taking A Pregnancy Test On Camera!! *PREGNANT AGAIN*

Taking A Pregnancy Test On Camera!! *PREGNANT AGAIN*


hi guys so I’m in the Walmart parking
lot right now I am very late on my period which can mean a few different
things I am pregnant again or I or my hormones are all messed up both are a
big possibility especially since Drake and I haven’t been using protection well
we have kind of we’ve been using the pullout method which I know doesn’t like
really work but I mean I don’t want to be put on birth control he doesn’t want
to wear condoms so we’re kind of just like if it happens it happens however
I’m not really sure if I want another baby right now I do want more kids in
the future but I think I could be pregnant so I’m gonna go in Walmart and pick
one out and I guess we’ll find out if we’re having baby number two okay I’m
not sure which one I’m going to get but I don’t want to spend a lot of money and
honestly these works just as good so I’m just gonna grab these two and we’re
gonna head out okay I’m in the bathroom right now I don’t know why I’m so
nervous this isn’t like it’s my first time being
pregnant I guess it’s just kind of like yeah I want another baby I just don’t
know if the right time is now just because it’s already really packed and
our place with the three of us and and even though we’re looking for new places
that are bigger so we can grow a bigger family we can’t move out till
September’s so I don’t know I guess like part of me kinda wants to be pregnant
than the other part of me is like it’s not your time right now so I don’t know
I mean I don’t know I feel like it’s in God’s hands and whatever happens is
meant to happen I got two pregnancy tests they were like the cheapest ones
the cheapest pregnancy tests work just as good as the other ones but if you’re
trying to test early they may not work as accurate as like first response we’re
gonna go try one now I’m so nervous so I have like this mini water bottle that
I’m going to pee in because I don’t have anything else well I do have other stuff
but I don’t want to like I don’t know so I’m just gonna use this and then throw
it away but here we go okay let’s do this I think I do three drops yeah three
full drops one two three okay now we wait test results will
appear within three minutes positive results may appear as early as 60
minutes okay I’m setting my timer to three minutes and now we’re just gonna
wait all so Drake doesn’t know I’m doing this I don’t want to make him like
nervous or stress out if I’m not actually pregnant
so we’ll see what it says and then go from there but yeah this is probably the
hardest part is like the suspense of waiting to find out if you’re pregnant
because like either nothing’s happening or your life’s about to change forever okay it’s time to look at it I don’t
want you like I kind of don’t want to wait what okay I’m confused did I do
this right yeah I did this right what what does that even mean
I’ve never had this happen before it says it says invalid result
I’m so confused have any of you guys ever had this
happen like I’ve never had this happen and I’ve taken quite a bit of pregnancy
tests that’s weird maybe it’s too early but
then it would say negative right okay what I’m literally so confused
I’m so confused okay guys look at this okay this is what it looks like I don’t
know if you can see that the camera is trying to focus okay you see that line
where it says T here I’ll put it like this like the lines at the T and it says
here you’re not pregnant if it’s like if it’s on the sea line you’re not
pregnant if it’s both lines you’re pregnant and then if it’s if it’s just
the line on the tee it’s an invalid result I don’t know that’s really weird
I kind of want to take the other one but maybe it’s just invalid because it’s too
early and I am pregnant and like it doesn’t know what to do I don’t know
maybe I can take this one tomorrow and see I don’t know now I feel like I’m
even more anxious because I don’t know anyone that’s how this happened to them
it says if it’s ATO that’s upside down right what is it it’s an invalid
I don’t know what should I do guys I’m gonna get off of here and like do some
research about this because I literally like don’t even know what this means if
you guys know anything about this please let me know or if this is like happen to
you and you were pregnant let me know and I’ll keep you guys updated and we
will find out sooner or later if I’m pregnant again or not

Building momentum and fighting resistance ~ Innsbruck, Austria

Building momentum and fighting resistance ~ Innsbruck, Austria


Hello everyone, hello from Innsbruck, in Austria We got here… gosh, almost 3 days ago already I haven’t left the apartment much since then, to be honest And sure, there are good reasons why I haven’t I had a lot of things to catch up on Also, it’s nice to have a break from so much driving, after driving through all Spain, France and Germany And, of course, the weather. It hasn’t stopped raining since we got here and the temperatures have just plummeted in the last 2 days When we got here the highs were around 60 degrees, the lows were in the 40s Right now, the highs are in the 40s and the lows in the 20s It’s not that I’m afraid of the cold, but of what it means: rain in the city means snow in the mountains Which sounds great, but my car is not properly equipped for driving in winter conditions I highly respect mountain roads in winter conditions I had a couple of very scary moments in the US I prefer to stay out of the roads when the conditions are not good But as I said, all of these are just excuses that I’ve been making up because, at the very least, I could’ve gone for a few walks around the city and sure, I did but they were very short, I was not making any images or anything like that The truth is, this place is very nice, and warm, it’s very cozy and comfortable I can eat chestnuts while I watch some YouTube videos The problem is that when I don’t go out, I don’t feel inspired, I don’t feel motivated It makes me feel lazy, and this piles up This is a cycle that the longer I let it grow, the harder it becomes to break The only way to do it the only way to break this cycle is by just simply getting out there and doing something, creating something And that’s what we’re gonna do right now And I personally find that the best way to get out of a rut is to keep it simple and to keep it short That’s what I’m doing today, I’m going on a very short hike that is nearby the apartment I came to this part of Innsbruck called Hungerberg, I just love the name It’s very, very close to where we are staying and there’s usually a cable car that runs year-round all the way to the top of the mountain, there is a big mountain just behind us But it’s closed once a year for a couple of weeks for inspection works and of course, those 2 weeks are happening right now It’s going to reopen just the day before we leave Which is good news, I guess, because we’ll get to use it at least once and go to the top You can still hike up there, not all the way to the top, but very, very close I’m not gonna be doing that today As I said, I’m gonna be keeping it simple and short, but maybe in the future, in the next few days This is just to check out the place and know what to expect from here It’s beautiful around here, look at all the fall colors on the trees Yes, it’s true, you can hear the noise of the city far away, but it’s still very nice What I’m trying to do here today, the goal for today, is not to make images That would only put pressure on me and lead to frustration I haven’t made a single…, I mean, I took a photo at the beginning of the hike but that was it I haven’t made another single image and I’m ok with that because the purpose for today is to To do what I like to call “Build momentum” I believe that starting anything is the hardest part no matter if you are talking about running, the first mile is always the hardest one or if you’re talking about photography, getting out there and the first photos are always the hardest ones, but then it gets easier you might know the book “The war of art” by Steven Pressfield I highly recommend that book and another one of his that is called “Do the work” I read them a long time ago and I actually intend to read them again soon because there is a lot of information there and they need more than one read to assimilate all that information But in those books he talks about a concept that he calls the “resistance” The resistance is any kind of excuse that you make up so you don’t do anything that you are afraid of something that you fear and by fear, we’re not talking about my fear of driving in winter conditions on ice or snow That’d be reckless on my part We are talking about creating something, writing a book, taking photos sharing them, creating a photo book or doing an exhibition We are fearful that that is going to expose us That that’s gonna make us vulnerable That happens to me, sometimes I wanted to create some YouTube videos with my opinion about some topic I ended up not making them because you know, it’s just my opinion and maybe no one would care or maybe everyone would think otherwise, or they’d think less of me if I shared my opinions on some topics It’s that fear of creating something, of sharing something, or the excuses that I’ve been making up these past 2 days to not get out here because it’s too cold, it’s really comfortable at home Those things that he calls the resistance It’s the same idea that I was talking about earlier, it’s about that cycle that builds up and that is very hard to break Today is not about creating great images, even though if that happens that’d be great Today’s about breaking that cycle, about beating that resistance and about building momentum A momentum that will get me going for the rest of my time here in Innsbruck and for hopefully, the rest of the trip All right, made it through the forest and look at that, that’s beautiful You can see… well, I can see at least part of Innsbruck there, and you can see more mountains there It is beautiful around here That is a little shelter / restaurant that I think is open year round I’m going to try to keep going farther up to see how far I can go on these mountains see if I can reach some snow The screen on this camera is not working very well It usually fixes itself… there you go, you just have to hit it a few times and it works again You probably can hear the noise, there is some heavy machinery working up there yeah, this is not exactly the wilderness, as you can see but still, really beautiful and for photos it might be even better There is a car coming right now, well, I wasn’t expecting that Anyway, as I was saying, a few years ago A few years ago this would have bothered me and annoyed me quite a lot because I was looking for just pure nature and pure wilderness But now I find more interesting to actually photograph stuff like this, some human structures or some sign of human activity, in the middle of nowhere, or in weather like this, very eerie and moody I think it gives the images some character Sometimes nature can be just too beautiful and that’s awesome but sometimes for the images I find that this kind of landscapes / scenes work better Looks like there’s quite a bit of traffic here It’s so much better on this side of the mountain It was way too loud on the other side with all that machinery but this is exactly what I meant by that I look for a little human touch in the landscapes This is an example, it’s not the best example it’s a sign that I can contrast against the trees in the background I think it looks pretty nice The battery’s about to die Look at this place And take a listen You can hear the highway very far away, but otherwise, you can’t hear anything You can’t hear anything and the mountains around are so beautiful and this atmosphere With this fog, it’s just so cool I think I’m pretty close to the to the cable car, to where the cable car goes through Maybe I can make some images there of those cables disappearing in the void and the emptiness Hopefully, maybe, but yeah, this is beautiful around here, look at those trees! This is exactly what I needed for today That’s one of the towers for the cable car and, how cool is that view? You can see the cables Well, that’s cool, I guess they are testing or trying the cars They could make for a good image, I wasn’t ready this time I recorded the video, but I didn’t have time to take photo. Next time, hopefully Okay, so that was super cool but the view from here is just something else Not on this side, but on every other side Here, you get the view up the mountain Here you see all the mountains to the side, sunset is happening right now There’s a slight pink color to the sky that you can’t probably see through the camera and through the video right now But yeah, it’s super beautiful and down there you can see the cables going down, the city of Innsbruck, the lights are being turn on Camera died, but I was saying that you can see Innsbruck down there The lights are being turned on right now, because sunset is going happen in just a few minutes and that means that I should start thinking about going down, because I don’t know this place well enough I’m not too far from the car, probably just 20 minutes away But still, I like to play it safe, I’m going to head back This landscape is just incredible and I can’t believe that I have it pretty much in my backyard for the next 10 days and this is the perfect place to come to, even if the weather is bad and even if I don’t feel safe on the roads, because I don’t really have to drive, I can just walk up here and that is amazing Yeah, it’s a beautiful, beautiful view, I’ll be back here for sure It’s time to head back down now Finally made it back to the car I always find myself hiking in the dark for some reason It’s well past sunset, but made it, going to just drive back home Alright, so it’s a couple of days later, I just want to wrap this video up I’m happy to report that what I was trying to do a couple of days ago, worked Yesterday, I went on another hike, a much longer hike, and today I visited a couple of nearby towns So I’m getting out more often I’m getting images as a result of that and I’ve gone a little bit crazy, made a decision that I will probably regret very soon but I’ve started a daily vlog on my Instagram TV I’m going to leave the link down below for those who don’t follow me on Instagram or just want to check that out, yeah… You might be thinking that all of this is easy for me to say because I’m here in Innsbruck, it’s a beautiful location and getting out is easy Well, I have to tell you that it wasn’t easy for me at first, I had to face that resistance that happens no matter where you are because it is within you, it’s not anything to do with the location It’s everything to do with the person I can guarantee you that no matter where you are, no matter where you live in the world, there is an image to be made I have a video that I made a few weeks ago I’m going to link it here, about what to photograph it could be anything, and you can find inspiration anywhere But I’d love to hear what you have to say about this, of course I read all the comments, I’m just now getting back to all of you I haven’t for weeks because I didn’t have any time But I promise that now I will start being more reliable with that kind of stuff Anyway, enough for today Thank you so much for watching again, see you in the next one

I MADE FRIENDS IN AMERICA | TRYING OUT MY NEW VLOGGING CAMERA | Eloi D Vlog

I MADE FRIENDS IN AMERICA | TRYING OUT MY NEW VLOGGING CAMERA | Eloi D Vlog


Hello guys. A beautiful day to all of you. Yes, you’re more beautiful than the day. So here’s what’s going on. It’s going to be my first time to go out alone here in Spokane. I’m going to stroll around… walk around. To test my new vlogging camera. My new Gopro which I’m using now. That’s why the picture’s crisper. I look better. Lesser pimples – I hope. And then I’m heading to Office Depot to print my stuff that I will use for my future vlogs. Yes. That’s what I’m… That’s my activity for the day. So stay tuned. Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go. Here we go. Welcome back to my channel. And for today’s video, friends. I’m going to test my new vlogging camera. We’re going to Office Depot. I already looked it up. Yes. I already have my phone in my hands. Since now, I’m using a different camera. It looks nice here. There, welcome back to my channel. The reason why I’m heading to Office Depot is to buy stuff that I will bring along for my trip to Vegas. Yes. I’m heading to Vegas. Just a few days from now. I think only 5 days. Office Depot is my first destination so I’m thinking of just walking. It’s only a 30-minute walk anyway. I can do that. I usually walk back there in the Philippines so let’s do it here as well. Come with me. Let’s go. Do you see that slope? That is where we’re walking. I hope there are no dogs along the way. My sister told me that there are. If you’ll notice, I carrying a large bag. I’m like Dora. I’m like Dora. I’m the only person walking. I’m asking you to walk with me to ease my fear. Good thing I wore sunscreen. The sun is shining a little bit stronger today. I wish I won’t get lost. Anyway, I have my phone. I should search for my destination now. But I think I don’t need to. I think I only need to go straight. You’ll see… I’m already exhausted. You’ll see that the leaves turned yellow since fall has already began. I should wear gloves, friends. It’s chilly out here. I know I brought one. And I think I’m close so I’ll just brush this off. I don’t want to make an effort pulling it out off my bag. I’m lazy. Let’s go, let’s go. Hello, friends. As you noticed, I can’t stand it any longer. I already need to put these on. It’s super cold, oh my. I think I’m already walking for 15 minutes. I think it’s obvious now that I’m having a hard time opening my mouth. Because it’s cold! I should’ve taken the bus But since I feel like I’m close, I’ll just persevere through. Ok, see you. What can you say about this, friends? I found it. I finally came after, I think, after a 20-minute walk. Yes, friends. I just walked from the house. Let’s go in. I’m going to brace myself now. My english skills will be put to test once more, friends. Hold on. I’ll just put these away. Oh my. Wooo. I don’t have an idea how many degrees it is outside, or fahrenheit. But one thing’s for certain – I got cold. Once again, I need to be techie which is another struggle for me. Hold on. I’m preserving my battery. I’ll just turn it off for the moment. Hello, friends. I’m done with my stuff here at Office Depot. Here it is. Stay tuned for my next videos to find out what are these that I printed. And I’m just waiting for my friend back there. Yes, we’re friends immediately. Let’s just wait for her break. And as you can see, I’m here at So cool. This is the equivalent of National Bookstore in the Philippines but this is on another level since they have a drinking station. There’s coffee in that corner. And then people here are accommodating and friendly. It’s just quick. I only struggled with my english skills. Let’s wait for her. We’ll see. She looks harmless enough so she’s my friend now. Ah, ya, ya, ya. Everywhere can do, friends. Go. I’m struggling, friends. Wait a sec. Since we’re now close, let’s just sit down. Oh yah. I think I saw that in the news. Isn’t that the… Even though I don’t have an idea. đŸ˜›

Is that in Malibu? Or not? We’re literally sitting down, guys. She’s so nice. Super nice. I had a little chat with my friend, Jude. She has left. I think she’s now in her car. Now, I have to walk back home. Another struggle for me. I’m now waiting for my Uber, friends. Since I can’t seem to figure out Google’s instructions if I’m to ride the bus Looks like I still need to walk for a couple of minutes so I thought it might be better if I just hailed an Uber. It’s a bit pricy. It costed me $9. Multiply that by 50 pesos so 450. I’d rather spend that much than being lost. I think this is a good idea. Take a look. I’m now waiting for her. I’m now waiting. I was scared a while ago… hence I entered this ice cream shop, no, I think yogurt shop for the mean time. A while ago, while I was waiting outside, a car stopped by in front of me. I can’t make out what he’s been trying to tell me. So I just entered this shop out of fear. Does he think that I’m a “pick-up?” I’m now waiting for my Uber. It will arrive in 2 minutes so I already went out. I’m not sure if you can see me in the dark, friends. Let’s wait for our friend, Misty. I already went outside. I wonder where she is at now. Arriving soon in 2 minutes, it says. That’s where I went out of. I just sat down without buying anything which is so Pinoy. Well, I can’t help it, friends. It’s so cold. I can’t stand it any longer. I think this is it.

Badlands National Park, Day 1 | Analog and Digital Landscape Photography

Badlands National Park, Day 1 | Analog and Digital Landscape Photography


I’m not going to lie After years of raveling all over the west, I feel a little bit sad now that my time in the US is about to end That’s why a couple of weeks ago I decided to pack my things and drive more than 1,000 miles to South Dakota a trip that took me over 16 hours in two days to complete With winter storms still hitting the north I had a narrow window to do such a long trip and avoid them while I was in the road once I got there though, there would be no way to escape the big one a blizzard that caught me in the park, where I found myself stuck for a couple of days with record-breaking temperatures and snowfall But that was just one of the many difficulties I had to face in one of my toughest road trip yet On my first night in the badlands, let’s call it day zero I went on a short hike and took some snapshots and just one film photo The forecast kept changing for the worse I was expecting six inches of snow during day two, but the latest predictions were talking about 15 and even 18 inches Good morning guys Welcome to the badlands national park That’s right So I got here yesterday at night After a very very long drive from Indiana, it was a thousand miles, 16 hours But I finally made it to South Dakota This is Western South Dakota, almost to Wyoming, and yeah as you can see it’s a national park of Badlands. I’m gonna be here for five full days and six nights, so I think it’s gonna be enough time to explore the park Hopefully take some good shots There’s one problem though, and it’s the forecast for tomorrow. There is a blizzard warning 11 to 17 inches of snow expected Yeah tomorrow, I’ll probably be staying in the car but the rest of my stay here should be nice So it might be a good thing that I’m getting cloudy, sunny and blizzard weather in just five days So I have a little bit of everything I’m gonna be approaching this trip in a slightly different way I not only brought my film equipment, but I also brought digital equipment, digital camera with different lenses So I’m gonna be taking black and white film photos and digital color photos today, it’s about getting to know this place a little bit more scouting a little bit, drive through the park See what it has to offer or what I can expect to know what to do in the next few days, so let’s go Okay, so I’m here at the Pretty much still the beginning of my first hike And I found this This is Saddle Pass. I think you are supposed to go through here somehow So on the side of the cliff or the side of the canyon I just can’t it’s very slippery and I can’t with two tripods and two cameras And I don’t feel like climbing rocks right now I have a lot of gear and also there are snakes and that’s not something I want to do right now, so I think I can get to the top using other two trails that hopefully are not like this so far failure I’m out of the park now Well, at the entrance I found these fields here that are pretty cool, a little bit far away from the Badlands So I took three shots With the bronica here using these track tracks You’re not supposed to drive off-road But someone did, I guess, so I mean they help for the photo least because they are like a guideline otherwise it would be boring so I took two compositions with the track and one without the tracks And we’ll see how that works During this first pass of the park, I was amazed by the landscape But the highlight of the day was actually the wildlife deer bighorn sheep bison and prairie dogs were a great contrast to the desolated landscape It’s been a long day so far it’s only 5 p.m.. But I’ve been awake for 12 hours already I guess this is the calm before the storm I mean “calm” because it’s very very windy it was really hard to cook dinner here We are expecting between 9 and 13 inches if not more Let me check because it changes a lot from one minute to the next. Between 9 and 14 inches tomorrow Friday anyway All that snow is gonna come with high wind too, so that means that I’m gonna be spending Pretty much the whole day tomorrow here in the car. I have a lot of Yeah, let’s call it shit because it’s shit, with me, so I’ll be fine. I have food. I have water. I have books Saturday’s gonna be just fine I mean it’s gonna be very cold, so the snow is not gonna melt It’s gonna be here with us for a little bit, so we’ll see if I can actually drive to somewhere else in the park But if I can’t I also have plans I can just walk there because the weather is gonna be just fine. It’s gonna be cold and probably full of snow, but it’s gonna be just partly cloudy not very windy so I’ll be able to walk over there and probably take some Hopefully cool photos of these Badlands covered in snow, but yeah, that’s about it I don’t know how to feel about this just yet. I don’t know if I should be concerned, I don’t know if I should be happy because I’m gonna get special conditions here I always say that Landscape photography is all about the conditions, and the more special the better the photos, and that is true So I’m very tired but I still have a little bit more than two hours before sunset so I think I’m gonna drive to the park and Get even more tired so I can get good sleep just trying to take advantage of my last hours being able to actually walk out and Do something right before the the storm comes here, so yeah This is it for today See you tomorrow from the car Thanks for watching, and see you tomorrow

Hopefully, I’m not forgetting anything Hello, and good morning everyone from France I’m in a town called Orleans, not really sure how to pronounce it This place is 40 to 50 miles south of Paris I’m at right now at the campus, at the university, just going for a quick morning walk It’s peaceful and nice around here I’m actually on my way to Germany I have to be in Frankfurt later today because I have to pick up Rachel That’s where our fall trip is going to really begin, even though I’ve been on the road for a few days already I’ll be telling you everything about this trip later in this video I’ll be talking about camera gear, my camera gear of choice for this trip as well I’m trying a few new things, a more radical approach this time But first of all, let me do some self promotion You might know that I have a series of prints called the Image of the Month that I sell on my website The current one is called Saguaro I made that image in Saguaro National Park, back in Arizona a few months ago It’s the image of the month of October That means that it’s at a reduced price, half the price, for this month If everything goes well, this video is going to go live on October 30th And that means that there are only 2 days left to get that print at that price After that, it’ll go to full price and it’ll never be this low again Of course, a new print will be released on November 1st So if you’re watching this video on November 1st or later, please go to my website to check the current image of the month I’m going to leave the link in the description down below As I said, I’m going to Frankfurt today I have a long way to get there, a long day ahead of me So I better go now Coffees are really small, they are very good, but they are really small I’ll just finish this in 2 sips This is not going to be cheap 52 euros Made it to Germany, I am… I think half an hour away from the airport Rachel is getting there in 40 minutes or so, so I don’t have much time here But I’m just taking a break because it’s been a long day So yeah, the fall trip that is beginning today Rachel has been in Mexico for a week, she was there with her company, she was there for a retreat They work remotely so they get together twice a year And she decided, or we decided, that it would be better for her if she just skipped all this drive to here, to Germany And just flew directly here, to Frankfurt That’s what I’ve been doing these past few days I drove all the way from NW Spain, it was a total of 21 hours on the road I stopped by the Basque Country for a couple nights, in Zumaia, Dragonstone! There is a video coming about that place, it’s beautiful, it’s the next video So I’m picking her up today and she’s going have a whole week off that we’re going to spend here in Germany, we’re going to go along the Rhine, the river Then we’re going to go down to the Black Forest and to the border with Switzerland Near a lake around there, I don’t remember the name, but all the places look beautiful We don’t have clear plans, it’s just driving around, walking around, tasting a lot of food, taking photos and just enjoying ourselves here After that, we are going to be heading to Austria We’re going to be 3 weeks in Innsbruck, in the Innsbruck area 2 weeks in in the city and 1 week just out of the city some 20 miles away Austria, that part of Austria at least, is supposed to be full of mountains and hiking trails and everything So it should be really beautiful and I should have a lot of fun over there I intend to to hike a lot It also happens to be very close to the border with Italy and the Italian Alps, the Dolomites The Dolomites is a place that I’ve been wanting to go for so long, years and years and years Hopefully I can make that happen on this trip I think it’s a couple hours from Innsbruck, it might be a little bit farther If that’s the case, I might have to stay there for the night I really want to go to the Italian Alps Talking about Italy, that’s going to be our next destination after Austria We’re going to be there for a couple of weeks One very close to Milano, northwest of Milano in the NW Italian Alps And then we’re going to go down to Genoa and stay in a little town out of Genoa, on the coast So we’ll have a little bit of everything, mostly mountains, but we’ll get some coast, as well And then from Genoa I’ll just be heading back to Spain It’s going to be a total of a month and a half on the road As I said, Rachel is coming and arriving in a little bit it’s been a long trip for her too, she flew from Mexico to Madrid, a 10 hour flight And now she’s flying from Madrid to here, to Frankfurt Mainz And I think that’s another 2 or 3 hours So she’s going to be very tired and she’s going to be suffering yet lag Probably she’s going to want to go to the hotel as soon as possible and the hotel is an hour drive So yeah, let’s do that now All right, so we are finally settled here in Germany I’m going to talk really quick about the last thing that I wanted to mention in this video The camera gear that I’m bringing This should be pretty fast because this is the camera that I’m using to take the photos The only camera I’m going to use to take photos on this trip I think I’ve talked and mentioned this camera before in this channel, but I’ve never shown it before This is the Sony RX100 mark ii, this is a rather old camera I bought it back in 2013 or 2014, I bought it used at the time and it’s been through a lot, it’s been to a lot of places with me First for photography and then for videos, my early videos were made with this camera and it’s a little bit beaten up everywhere I’ve dropped this camera more times than I can count The autofocus continuous doesn’t work It makes a lot of noise when it’s trying to focus The screen is a little bit rough too And the focusing ring barely moves I think it still takes beautiful images It has a very bright lens, a f/1.8 The range of this lens is very useful, it goes from 28mm to 100mm So it allows me to get those wide shots and the telephoto shots In fact, this is the camera that I was using for almost a whole month All the images that you saw in the previous video, Outubro, were made with this camera All of them? Not exactly true Most of them, because some of them were made with the other camera that I have here with me I have another camera to record the videos, of course It’s the other RX100 that I have, the mark VA that is much better for videos It’s not as good for photography, in my opinion, because the range goes from 24 to 70mm So I’m more limited on the long side of things But still, it records beautiful videos and it takes beautiful photos as well I decided to leave my a6000 and my a6500 behind Also, the Bronica I wanted to go compact and I wanted to go small And try for myself what it would be like to just go with really small cameras on a trip like this I’ll be sharing my experience of going compact with you in the next few weeks and maybe make just one video about it, specifically But I can tell you that so far there are some good things As I said, the image quality that this camera can produce is very nice And I find the range of the focal length very useful For video, though, the story has been a little bit different So far it’s been a little bit more frustrating because the VA doesn’t have a microphone input And I’m trying to play more with silent videos It’s pretty hard… when I talk to the camera, I can always use a lavalier mic or something like that, it’s not a problem But when I want to capture those ambient sounds of the forest, or the mountains, or something like that It’s harder and more frustrating, I wish it had a microphone input, that’d make it almost the perfect camera for me Another thing I’ve noticed using these cameras is of course the size and the weight I can definitely tell the difference, there’s a big difference I went on a couple hikes, they weren’t very hard hikes but it was very nice to be able to go on that hike Carrying 2 cameras, for video and for photo Carrying so little weight because the weight of the these 2 cameras is less than one of my lenses for the other cameras So that’s amazing But there are many other advantages and disadvantages that I’ll be sharing with you in the next few videos I just wanted to give you a quick update, even though it hasn’t been that quick Just expect videos coming from this trip and images pretty soon For now, thank you so much once again for watching and for being there, see you in the next one
