GOBE ND Neutral Density Filter

I was looking for a variable ND filter in Pakistan for my 67mm Sigma lens, I searched a lot on local online stores but in the end, I managed to get the one from the UK Amazon website.

This vlog is about a quick unboxing of Gobe variable ND filter NDX 67mm 2-400 at Ficus Water Spring Trail 5 Islamabad. By the way, Gobe is now known as a new brand name that is Urth.

I did before a short review about Weebill Lab now this time I got a brand new Weebill S and in this vlog I did a quick unboxing. This vlog is about Weebill S gimbal especially the comparison with its older model Weebill Lab. If you want to know the main differences between these two gimbals, then check it out. Also, at the end of this vlog, there will be a short slow-motion casual video of a local Islamabad vegetable market that raw footage I captured using Weebill S. That video was recorded in simple human walk motion without adopting any soft ninja walk method for capturing the smooth flow of camera movements.

Canon 80-200mm f2.8L – The Magic Drainpipe in 2021

A quick video review about The Magic Drainpipe – Canon EF 80-200mm 2.8L lens. This lens is a fantastic telephoto portrait zoom and it is built like a TANK. It was the world’s top telephoto zoom in its heyday, and today even in 2021 I still consider it as one of the world’s best professional zooms. Its optics are considered as good as Canon’s latest L-series telephoto zooms. This lens sells for a fraction of the price of the newest zooms, and is built tougher, has a better tripod collar than today’s expensive Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L.

Convert Canon F4L lens into F2.8L on M50

This vlog is about a Viltrox speed booster adapter that how it reduces the focal length by 0.71x and how it provides an extra f-stop with the full-frame lens on the Canon M50 mirrorless crop body. Also by mounting it, one can achieve functions of AF(autofocus) and adjustable aperture, etc. This Viltrox adapter can convert your EF lens like 24-105 F4L into F2.8L, similarly, you can use your other lenses like EF 50mm F1.8 lens as a 50mm F1.2 lens. If you cannot afford to buy canon expensive lenses like EF 27-70 2.8L or any last 50mm prime of the L series, then you should definitely try this adapter with less expensive canon full-frame lenses on the crop body. In this way, your lens will become faster and you can enjoy a more shallow depth of field in your photos.

Zhiyun Weebill Lab Review with Sample Videos

Here is a very quick straightforward review of Zhiyun Weebill Lab 3-Axis gimbal, I tried to share my observations in simple words so any non-technical person can also understand that how gimbals are used in the video projects and for what purposes one can use them. I recently got a chance to use this gimbal for 2 days with my family and I made 2 sample videos using it. These two videos are like B-roll footage, I hardly spent 20-30 minutes to capture the RAW clips then I selected audio tracks and edited those RAW videos accordingly. So do not forget to watch those small clips at the end of this vlog.

Kaavan and Saheli – Once upon a time at Marghazar zoo

Last night I was watching on news that how the lonely elephant Kaavan left Pakistan and reached his new destination somewhere in Cambodia, where he will be kept free in a 10-acre of the area which seems an excellent plan for Kaavan. He has lived his early age of 33 years in Pakistan and had a wonderful time with his companion Saheli.

Product Photography Setup for Amazon

Recently I have done the product based photography project for an Amazon seller. My client shared with me the 14 pieces of fake succulents with the guidelines that how these artificial plants needed to be captured for the online Amazon store. He wanted 1 photo composition with all these pieces with the white background and 2 more photo compositions with their respective dimensions for each piece. So the end buyer can easily understand the product quality and dimensions in more than 3K final resolutions which are normally shown to the visitors in a website magnifying viewer whenever a visitor rollover the mouse on the product thumb image. Also, around 4-5 lifestyle images of the succulents were also required to upload along with the other photos so in that way a potential buyer could have a better idea that how exactly those fake artificial plants and flowers would look like at the real spots in our homes or offices.
