Unboxing RE Suction Mount – #ReByHTC‬ #InFullView‬

I receive this a day before I flew to Jakarta. This is what I need for my RE because I spent most of my time driving. Basically, this is the car mount for ReByHTC.

RE HTC in Malacca trip: http://www.feeqsays.com/2014/12/re-camera-by-htc-and-htc-desire-eye.html

Universal suction mount creates a stable base on any flat surface. Mount your RE on a window, in a car, on a table, or just about anywhere you want.

For more information: http://www.htc.com/sea/re/re-camera/

Basically, it is as simple as how it looks. It’s ready to go. No installation is required.

What’s inside the box?
•  Suction mount.
•  RE Bottom cap.
•  Quick start guide.

How to use it?
•  Press the suction mount firmly against the surface.
•  Turn the base wheel clockwise until it is locked in place.

For some reason, I really like the wheel base. How I wish my car phone mount also use the same wheel base.

Now I can simply just record whatever and whenever I want in the car.

Dumping Station for Photographer and Video Producer – WD My Passport Ultra (3TB) Premium Storage

As a photographer and video producer, I must have zero mistake. Especially when dealing with customer data such as footage. Sometime, unpredictable incident happened, but I have been working in this industry for more than 5 years and mistake is not an excuse. There has reason why I choose WD as my hard disk since I only trust the best.
Looking for photographer or video producer? > CVS Production
Some people think the price of WD is expensive compare than other until you realize the price that you have to pay when you lose client data and trust.
It was a sleepless night for the past few days. Ngantuk gila. Tadi drive kereta satu pun dah nampak jadi dua. Rasa nak balik terus tido but procedure is procedure. They said work as photographer & video producer is easy they said.
I have to transfer all the footage & data to my portable “dumping station” before I can call it a day. I’m afraid if something happened to my memory card.
Since I have so many footage & crew per project, it’s important to put every data and footage in “dumping station”. Usually we will transfer the footage and data to “Hot storage” for editing process and after everything completes, then only we will keep it in “Cold Storage”. So who said is just a copy and paste data? Thank god, WD has the reliable hard drive.
I make my WD My Ultra Passport (3TB) as my portable dumping station because it’s portable and have bigger capacity. 
I own a studio, CVS Production in Cheras (we do offer studio rental too) but sometime I prefer to do my work at the cafe. What else could be better other than a cup of ice cappuccino while working?
Studio rental: White Studio Project
Since we are always on standby, sometimes we even transfer the data and footage during our dinner time. We try to make it convenient and we prefer to directly go back home rather than a studio.
I’m tired of using bulky hard disk. It’s time to go for something portable and can be trusted.

It’s is going to be a long day today. Cleanup and rearrange some of the footage & data. What if… these data corrupted?

Unboxing WD Elements – Portable Hard Drives WD Elements

I just got back from Langkawi and the first thing I did was to get new hard drive. I have 1TB worth of one month Langkawi trip photo and video. I did a lot of shooting (video and photo) of the band who recording their first full length music album and of course the Langkawi island itself.
Since I have to go Brunei for a week for another shooting, I really need another hard disk. This time, I go for Western Digital compact version. I never use Western Digital hard drive before and all my hard drive require power supply because it is much cheaper compare than the travel/compact version. of course the only problem I had was it is bulky and require power supply.
I have been using Seagate and Buffallo brand before and so far they are still doing well. Since Bufallo brand do not have 2TB (travel/compact version), Seagate brand is kinda expensive (travel/compact version) and Western Digital having promotion, why not? This boy gonna be my light data transfer for my travel.
The problem that I had during my Langkawi trip was not only I do not have enough space (both of my external hard drives are 4TB) but both of my external hard drives require power supply. I already expect that I need at least 1TB for my one month Langkawi trip.
So, which hard disk do you use or bring while traveling? My 1st overland to Thailand will be on November 2015. Anyone want follow? Budget max is RM500/SGPD220
I don’t really do unboxing blog post but I receive a lot of request after I post up this boy over my Instagram. So, there you go. Special blog post for my reader who appreciate my Instagram post.

Package Contents: USB 3.0 portable, hard drive, USB cable and quick install guide.

I bought my hard drives from Viewnet Lowyat for RM369 (the cheapest compare to All IT and the “lorong” computer shop in Lowyat).

This is the catch. If u add on RM20, you can go for the ultra version. The different is just that slimmer, have data password protection and free gift silicon case. Then if u add on another RM20 u will get the metal version. I pick WD Elements coz it’s cheap and I don’t need the data protection.

Basically this hard drives come with NTFS format (for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Window 8) and Mac OS X 10.6.5 + (requires reformatting). If you are the Mac and Windows user like me, you need to format (FAT32) before you transfer all your data so that you can use it for your Mac and Windows. 

Don’t be stingy. Just get hard case for your hard disk. I bought this for RM15.

WD My Cloud Expert Series and Business Series – Media Launch

The launch of Western Digital My Cloud Expert Series and Business Series. Western Digital is one of the leading storage company providers. They believe by keep upgrading their services and increase the storage is the key and what people need nowadays. Of course safety is also one of the main highlights.
I totally agreed with them. As a social media influencer, photographer and video producer, storage capacity and data safety have always been one of the issue for me to keep all my data. Can you just imagine when I went to one event, it can simply cost me up to 1GB data? Not to mention during my shooting. When I shoot for a commercial or music video, minimum of 30GB is required.
Now, Western Digital have the answer. Reputation can’t be build within a day and that’s why quality is always the key for Western Digital.
I’m starting to get used to bring my ‪#‎htcButterfly2‬ around as my camera rather than DSLR. Trust me, when you run a production company, sometimes you just want to put down your bulky camera and enjoy the event rather than walking around to take photo/video.
P/S: I can’t wait for the launch of ‪#‎htconem9‬ (20mp back camera)

What does it mean by waterproof in HTC Butterfly 2?

The other day I posted up my HTC Butterfly 2 that went underwater and I receive a lot of questions from my Facebook follower such as how deep this device can go underwater, does the phone will have problem after it went underwater, etc.
To be honest, HTC Butterfly 2 have one problem where it will change into an earphone mode (as you can see from the photo) once you put it underwater. However, you should not suppose to worry because once you take out from underwater it will turn to normal within 3-5 minute. Other than that, everything is just great.

What does it mean by waterproof in HTC Butterfly 2? 

HTC Butterfly 2 has waterproof properties that meet IPX7 and IPX5 standards. The phone meets these standards under the condition that the nano SIM and microSD covers are closed tightly. 

Being waterproof, it doesn’t mean that HTC Butterfly 2 can be used to make calls or take camera shots underwater. Basically:
– The phone is only waterproof when immersed in plain tap water within 1 meter deep and for less than 30 minutes.
– You can make and receive calls, even with wet hands and without an umbrella, under moderate rain.
– If the phone accidentally gets in contact with sea water, soapy water, or other liquids, you can rinse it with a low flow of plain tap water. 

HTC Butterfly 2 must not be exposed to non-fresh water, high water pressure, or sand since these may cause overheating, electric shock, or damage to the phone. For usage precautions and tips on care and maintenance, see Important: Do’s and don’ts and Care and maintenance tips. Also make sure to read the Safety guide that comes with your phone. 

Note: To be specific, the waterproof standards mean the following:
– IPX7: The phone can continue to operate after it has been gently immersed in plain tap water at room temperature, within 1 meter deep for no more than 30 minutes.
– IPX5: The phone can continue to operate after it has been exposed to a low-pressure water spray for about 3 minutes, through a nozzle with 6.3mm inner diameter from a distance of about 3 meters from any direction and at a rate of approximately 12.5 liters/minute. – Source

HTC Butterfly 2 Unboxing and Review – How to transfer files from HTC

The other day, I just got my HTC Butterfly 2 and I’ve been playing with it since then. Thank you HTC Malaysia. I have been using HTC Desire 816 and playing with HTC Desire Eye but this Butterfly 2 is still my choice. Since I’m a full time blogger and active in social media, this HTC Butterfly 2 is just good enough for me since I can’t afford for HTC One M8. I’m definitely will save up for HTC One M9 next year.
Basically, all the basic stuff such as manual, charger, earphone, USB cable, and warranty card are provided. My first impression of HTC butterfly 2 is it comes with more or less the same look as the previous Butterfly model. For heavy internet user like me, this HTC Butterfly 2 supports the most LTE bands around the world and even the spec is as good as the HTC’s flagship HTC One M8.
Simple yet powerful.

You can get more detail on the phone over here, HTC SA. Personally, I prefer the size of the screen of my previous HTC Desire but this boy come in handy and awesome 5″ Full HD display which is similar to its current flagship. Not to mention that the processor does the talking when it runs on a Quad-Core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 2GB of RAM.

Sometime, I have to show my client some of my video portfolio that I did and this boy still retained the Boom Sound Stereo speakers located at the front.

I’m a heavy instagram user and I’m quite impressed with the camera where it has Duo Camera set up that can shoot 13MP and maximum Full HD 1080p resolution. For taking selfies, it has a wide angle 5MP front facing camera.

For those who love to take video, photo or even downloading music, this boy comes with internal 16GB storage and of course you can increase the storage by adding on MicroSD up to 128GB. Not to mention, this device have 2,700mAh capacity battery.

If you have so many files/data to transfer from one phone to another, check out how simple htc transfer is.
Compare than my previous HTC Desire 816, it’s slightly smaller but much solid.  Weighs 151g and has a thickness of 9.99mm. If you prefer something plastic, go for rogue red, but I personally prefer carbon casing and I go for canvas white. Overall, the HTC Butterfly 2 which is priced at RM2, 299 (Canvas White or Rogue Red) is worth for the price.
