Sometimes you don’t always want to carry heavy gear to use with your iPhone or smartphone for making simple time-lapse or movie clips at a party. You want something small, compact and reliable mobile gear with you on the go or carry with you in a small camera bag. These are some of the products by DCkina I’ll be reviewing today. Up at the top are some of the practical mobile gear you’ll need to make mobile movies, time-lapse and steady HDR bracketing.
I wanted to start with the Tripod. This tripod is actually pretty good and really steady. I like the little leveling bubble and it folds up nicely. I’m going to show you two time-lapse videos I made with Top Camera 2 using this tripod.
Next is the new and improved Tripod Buddy adapter to go along with the tripod up above. I wanted to show you that this adapter fits my iPhone 6 plus with a threaded case. You can even use a Galaxy Note 5 and still have room to work with this adapter. The other thing I like about this adapter is you can leave it on your iPhone and it can be a helpful grip/stand.
This is my first time-lapse video done with Top Camera 2 and using the Firm Tripod/Tripod Buddy.
Here’s another time-lapse using my Full Frame Fisheye Lens and Top Camera 2. What I did was set you my iPhone and turned on the app. Then I tapped on button to start the time-lapse and let my iPhone record for about 45 minutes. Stop the app and wait for the process and check your time-lapse.
I got one of these Cloth-Clip ND Filter Lens.
This is what comes in the box, your ND Filer Len Clip and a storage bag. I did noticed something was wrong with the ND Lens.
These are the photos I took with the ND and I noticed that didn’t completely blacked out the photo. So I’m going to write to DCkina and get a new ND Filter. I’ll write a proper review for this product. This is the first time I’ve gotten a defective product. I wanted to say these things happen, so make sure you keep everything and your return form to send it back to the company. I really like this filter because it seems to work except where it’s chipped in a couple places.
