Star Trek TOS box set review

Image
Star Trek changed everything, and this box set's designers certainly tried to take things out of the box when they came up with the box set concepts by using the concepts and themes and even props used as equipment from the show in their efforts to bring us all something a bit different.

But how does it all hold up when put under the lens of my camera as I beam down to my reviewing table to scan it with my own sensors?


The Oral B Electric toothbrush review (Now why didn't blogger pick up on the title the first time?)

Image
​Brush, brush. brush your teeth, gently up and down, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, plaque will soon be gone.
So I got my hands on a good old fashioned Oral B electric toothbrush that I had forgotten I had and only charged up once a few years back.
Does it still work? Is it any good?
So I charged it up, setup the camera, and here's the results for you to see in glorious video!



Geralt The Witcher, vinyl figure review

Image
Geralt The Witcher, is now available in the form of a vinyl figure for all you collectors out here, and it's not from the people who make the same identikit bobble headed types.

This is from jink, or j!nk if you want to get serious about it, and as such it stands out straight away in it's own stylised way that is still instantly recognisable as the White Wolf himself.



The Zicac camera vest (re) review

Image
And do so in today's Deja Re Review, I look at the The Zicac camera vest review, after some substantial field testing where it's really been put through it's paces, what do I think of it now? 

So, I've been a bit busy of late.

Hi there, bit of a different blogger entry today.



Usually when I do these I'm making you aware of my videos on youtube, and of late I've been trying to branch out a bit a try other platforms, because, believe it or not, youtube isn't the only video sharing site these days.
Oh no, there are other options out there.
One of which is Minds.com, which I've really been using as more of an alternative to facebook, but you can upload videos there too and even monetise them. Problem is every time I tried to do that, the upload failed. Until last night when I tried again and guess what? It worked!
Yay Minds.
The other place I've had way more success with in general is vid.me. Sure I only have half the followers there that I have in terms of subscribers on youtube, but I get better views there. They are even beta testing their own monetising options too with adverts finally showing up there.
Not that I've seen any ads over there yet.
But I am getting more exposure there.

Taking a look at some Larping and Cosplay outfits

Image
I think the title says it all, eh? I've always wondered about just how good the quality of these outfits are, and if any of them might even be wearable on a day to day basis.

And to be honest from what I found in this haul, all of the items were of a good standard of quality, meaning they were very well made.

But would you be able to wear them outside of a convention or a larp event?

Well, probably not, not unless you have a fancy dress party of some sort to go to, or a themed charity day at work, or if somehow this kind clothing suddenly became REALLY fashionable and everyone felt they just had to have it, or you just feel like your dress sense is truly unique and you must stand out no matter where you may be.


All of these items were bought from amazon.co.uk but came from the following companies you'll find listed below. Not all have website where you can buy direct from them, so I've provided links to their own amazon page where appropriate):

Taking another look at the DuraPro Lp-E8 battery charger

Image
Charging batteries is pretty much essential for those of us who like to use electronic goods, and when it comes to pieces of kit that can only use specially designed batteries like a DSLR camera, then you tend to find yourself buying more batteries to get around this limitation and finding you need a faster charger then the one that came as standard with your camera, that only charges one battery at a time, very slowly. 
So after a fair bit of use, how does my DuroPro Lp-E8 stand up?
