Gardenature Bird Feeder Camera Review

In this article, I am going to go over why chose to get the IP Camera System and Birdfeeder Housing from Gardenature.co.uk, our initial experience in setting up the system and then show you some example video footage that we have captured so far. My daughter, who is now almost nine, has started to show […]


Bino Accessories: Why I chose a Leatherman for Christmas

Whilst sitting down to dinner with my family last night, my daughter (who has already been talking about Christmas for weeks now), surprised me somewhat by asking what I would like for Christmas rather than what she would like for Christmas! This was something that I was not prepared for and to be honest had […]


Movo PM10 Lavalier Microphone Review

Whilst not strictly related to binoculars, I often get asked what gear I use when creating my reviews, and especially the ones that go onto the BBR Youtube channel. Therefore as I have been so impressed with it, I have decided to include a review based on my experience using the MOVO PM10 Lavalier microphone. […]


Cotton Skout Binocular Harness Review

Rather than simply copying or even seeking to just improve on the more traditional designs of binocular harness, with the Skout Harness, Cotton Carrier has taken a completely new and somewhat unique look at how to carry your binoculars more easily and at the same time freeing up your hands when you are not glassing. […]


MOVO GH1000 Gimbal Tripod Head Review

Like any tripod head, a good Gimbal is not only able to hold your equipment completely still when needed, but the whole setup will also be perfectly balanced. It is this unique ‘balancing’ arrangement that makes even the heaviest camera, spotting scope or binocular feel almost weightless and enables the simultaneous movement in both the […]


Kuiu vs Badlands Bino Harness

Depending on your requirements, the ideal/perfect bino harness for you will largely depend on your specific needs or uses and the type or size of binocular and possibly other gear that you wish to carry. So for example, you may prize protection of your expensive bins as the most important feature, whilst others will place […]


SNYPEX X-Wing SPA1 Universal Smart Phone Adapter Review

Rather than using a standard camera, one of the most convenient and easiest ways to get into either digibinning or digiscoping is to use the camera on your smartphone – as you will most certainly already have a phone and probably always carry it about, all you need is an adapter to connect it to […]


SnapZoom Universal Digiscoping Adapter Review

The popularity of smart phones and thus the increase in competition has meant that they have improved almost infinitely since they first came into almost universal usage a decade or so ago. The great news for us is that this has also meant that the cameras on most of them now easily match the quality […]


Carson Universal Smartphone Optics Adapter Review

It was not that long ago that you really had to search quite hard, or possibly even make your own contraption in order to attach a camera to take photos or video through your binoculars (digibinning) or your spotting scope (digiscoping). But with the growth in use of smart phones and the improvement in quality […]


Celestron Binocular Harness Strap Review

Awards: Winner Best Binocular Accessory 2014 Many of the Celestron binoculars that I have tested for review actually come with a binocular harness included in the box, which is certainly a very welcomed addition and one that is definitely not usually offered for "free". However if you don’t have a Celestron bin or are on […]
