Portkeys KEYGRIP Update

I originally reviewed the Portkeys Keygrip in comparison with the RVLVR Clutch, and pointed out that it had a lot of potential, but a handful of frustrating flaws.

The REAL Reason I Switched to Sony

The REAL Reason I Switched to Sony

The Sony A7S III and the Canon R5 have stirred up quite the debate, and are bringing even the hardest of hardcore Canon fanboys to decisions they never expected to make. Yep, even me.

Portkeys LH5H | 1700nit Monitor under $300

Today, I want to talk about how a high end wireless video monitor compares to a much cheaper solution. I recently reviewed the Hollyland Cosmo M7, a 7 inch 1500 nit professional monitor with their professional grade zero latency Cosmo series receiver built right in.
