I have written a lot about the Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire watch, please check out the review page. For those interested in geotagging photographs, it’s the ideal companion. I will update the review to include more of its other features at some point, but my main priority was to demonstrate how easy it is to geotag photographs with a DSLR or mirrorless camera with Adobe Lightroom.
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.
