Saint Vitus bar is a cool music venue based in Brooklyn. Chris Enriquez, whilst lockdown has been happening has been running an Instagram live interview feed with key musicians who have performed there - it's had some big names through the years. ALSO Chris played drums on the Rom Boys soundtrack so we organised a time to do an interview along with Fernando Martinez the films composer. This was great and if you're into music skip my bit and jump […]

Now with the FX9 and the new a7sIII […]
Well after 5 years of gimbal ownership from the original Ronin 1 to the Ronin 2 now I've just received the Ronin RS2. Despite the excellent Ready Rig system I was just getting tired of lugging around the Ronin 2 - with camera technology coming on leaps and bounds in the past 5 years the visual benefits of mounting an FX9 on a Ronin 2 vs a handheld RS2 and an A7S3 are just so slight now I just couldn't […]
I'm always on the lookout for a camera bag with my seeming ever expanding kit. The last few years they've multiplied and got bigger to handle the arsenal of camera gear - my last bag a ThinkTank Photo Airport Accelerator has been great for lugging on planes, trains and automobiles however the kit has now outgrown it.
