The V-Mount system is a popular battery mounting standard that is designed for large batteries in the 60-90+ Wh range. This means that with such a system you can run small cameras all day and even many of the more demanding ones for hours. However, since this is gear for serious enthusiast and professional filmmakers, it does cost a lot of money. After I got my hand on a second-hand Li-Ion battery pack, I decided to explore the options in making my own V-Mount for under $150.

I recently found myself in a situation where I had to adjust the date and time on all my photos from overseas, JPEGs and RAWs. Lesson learned: it is much easier to remember (if you do) to change the setting on the camera when you are switching time zones.

2016 has been my second year of picking up photography. I've done a Best of Portfolio for last year as well, just never published it, but this year I decided to write a quick blurb about each picture and make my progress over time public.

There are many control surfaces out there to help with editing and colour grading but they are mostly geared towards professionals and are very expensive. Examples are surfaces from Tangent and Blackmagic. For amateurs and enthusiasts there are multiple cheaper options.

Prepping for a short documentary to be shot on Blackmagic and GH4.

The actual production time for my first proper documentary is coming up in a few weeks so I want to start writing about the pre-production process and my experiences as each shooting day happens.
