I’ve ordered a new watch strap for my Garmin Fenix 3 sapphire watch. I bought it from natowatchstrapco.com. Hopefully it’ll arrive soon. I ordered the 26mm strap as that looks to be the correct size for this watch, and it’s a two piece strap. Those with the heart rate version of the watch might encounter problems with single piece straps.
I’ve also added a donate button in the about section of the site, I have no idea if it works or not.
I recently stumbled upon a YouTube video regarding 20w and 100w LEDs. I’m not sure how it took me there since I was looking at something completely unrelated, but I had this idea that perhaps I could get something smaller for my travels. After searching Amazon for a little while, I found some wonderful USB powered LEDs. They’re only about 1 or 2 watts, but they’re probably quite useful if I want to take a photo of the tent from the outside.
Unlike most USB devices, these can work when they’re reversed too. They’re amazing. I’ve bought a couple, and I’ll see if I can use one of them in a reversed position, this way it would provide a 360 degree light source (a bit like a lantern) when they’re placed in a USB power bank. I’m not sure if these would be sufficient to replace a headlamp; I’ll provide an update soon when they arrive. It would certainly save a few grams. Considering the cost and weight of these devices, I think they’re at least worth trying out.
I’ve recently written a page for Sony a7II, Sony a7rII, and Sony a7sII firmware features. I would like to get some support for this once I’ve refined my ideas. It would be nice to see Sony put some of these into action. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
