Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 30, 2021 by getbent57

The Neewer USB LED lights ordered have arrived.  This set > here.   Took a week from ordering to being at my door.  Which is not bad since I had another item with it.  Haven’t gotten around to fulling setting them up yet.  But did test them.  Plugged each one into my computer.  There is a brightness buttons on the wire.  Must say they do get very bright.  So when both are plugged in and I have my other light on as well.  It should make my videos and pictures look better.  Will be back with another update.

Neewer_USB_LED_Video_LightsHave been working on getting back into making videos for YouTube.  Wanting to add some new equipment to my setup.  Have one light but need more.  This will help a lot to make the videos look better.  Seen this two pack of Neewer USB LED lights the fit the bill.  This set > here.   There are two light with tripods.  The lights run off of USB.  Have a few products from Neewer and haven’t had any problems.  So, ordered one.  Should be here some time next week.  In the mean time picked up a power strip that has USB ports built in.

Neewer NW759 Camera Field Monitor Kit Hands On

Posted in I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 15, 2019 by getbent57

Have had the Neewer NW759 field monitor kit for about a week but haven’t had the time to try it out.  Took a look at all the parts in the box when it showed up at the door.  On my day off finely got to try it.  The first thing I did was charge up the battery.  The kit came with a small USB charger.  Which as a nice LCD screen on it showing the battery charge level.  The case it comes with it is very nice as well.  It will keep the monitor save.  But don’t think it will hold all the other stuff you need to use it.  Sure some of it will fit fine.  Not a big deal since I wouldn’t be doing much traveling with it.

Very easy to setup.  Just have to set the camera to use HDMI out put and the screen takes over.  It didn’t fill the screen all the way at first.  Made some adjustments on the monitor and within the camera it’s self.  Then it did.  All my video projects going forward I will be using this monitor.  Will be back with another update in a few months time to see how I like using it.  You can see that kit I bought  > here. [Update, sold out at the typing of this post, July 15, 2019]

Neewer NW759 Camera Field Monitor Kit

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 8, 2019 by getbent57

It only took a few days for the Neewer NW759 field monitor kit to come in the mail.  Should say FedEx, maybe that’s way it got here so fast.  Haven’t tried it out let.  But did take a look at what it all comes with, the monitor, the cables, hot shoe mount, battery and charger as well as a nice case.  The reason I bought this was to help out my video making.  The screen on my camera is a bit small.  When I try to focus on something it looks fine on the screen.  But when it I put the video on my computer to edit I wasn’t really in good focus.  The monitor has a focus assist button.  It highlights in red what part of the object is most in focus.  Will be back with another update when I try it out.  Oh you can see that kit I bought  > here.

Neewer NW759 Camera Field Monitor Kit

Back in May (2019) made a post talking about camera monitors or field monitors.  These a little monitors that can sit on top of your DSLR to makes it easier to see what you are taking pictures or video of.  In that post talked about the Neewer NW759.  Looked into at the time and it seemed like the best choose of me.  It is designed for beginners and the price was right.  Have a birthday coming up.  So I ordered one.  Bought a kit version it comes with the monitor (of course), the cables, hot shoe mount, battery and charger as well as a nice case to store it in.  You can see what it looks like > here.  Should have in my hands some time this week.  This will help me out a lot when making videos for the YouTube channel I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry.

DSLR On Camera Monitor

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 8, 2019 by getbent57

Neewer_NW759Have been making videos for the YouTube channel I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry for months now.  I use the Canon EOS Rebel T5i.  Am very happy with the camera and it works awesome. The problem I have is the screen on the back.  It is nice and clear.  However when I try to focus it seems prefect in the camera.  But when I put the video on to my computer it not so great.   So got thinking about getting an external monitor.  Some call them on camera monitors or field monitors.  Started looking into them and was shocked my the prices.  Got thinking there has to be budget/beginner ones.  Looked into that and there.  Came across one that looks like it will fit my needs.  It is the Neewer NW759.  It can sit on top of the camera and the screen is seven inches.  It has a very cool feature I need.  It is focus assist.  You push a button and the screen turns grey and red.  The redder the line that is what is more in focus.  The only draw back it doesn’t come with batteries (depending on what version you buy) .  But they are easy to get off Amazon.  The best thing is the prices.  Starting a $150 to $190.00 from  You can see the options > here.  Might get the one with a case and battery back.  Have birthday coming up.  This might be my gift to myself.

Had some time off so got around to try out the Neewer Handheld Stabilizer.  This is the second one of bought off (The one I got > here).  The first one was missing a piece.  Watched a bunch of videos on YouTube on had to balance these type of things.  There are many makes and modes but they all pretty much work the same.  Spent about an hour dialing it in.  Don’t get it just right but not bad.  With time it will get easier and faster.  Will so take lots of practice to use just right.  Made a quick video on trying out for the first time.  You can see that > here or below.  Like every thing,  practice, practice and more practice.

The second Neewer Handheld Stabilizer I ordered show up at my door a few days back.   I opened it right way to see if all the parts were there.  This time around everything was packed and wrapped nicely.  All the parts are there.  On my day off plan to set it up.  Have a few videos from YouTube booked marked on how to balance this type of stabilizers.  From what I have watched it can take a long time to dial it in just right.  Like with anything it will take practice to use.  Do have one project in mind I want if for.

Neewer Stabilizer Another Update

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 19, 2018 by getbent57

Back in June (2018) ordered a Neewer Handheld Stabilizer off of  It was a birthday gift to myself.  When I opened it found out there was a piece missing.  Which was a very important one.  It was the part that attaches to the camera.  Which in turns attaches to the stabilizer.  So had to sent it back.  That was easy to do.  Just took awhile to the money to get credited back on to my credit card.

Got the money back now.  So ordered another one.  Should be here some time next week.  Will open it right way to make sure it is all there.  Have some vacation time coming up.  Plan to try it out then.

Neewer Stabilizer Update

Have made a few post about the Neewer Handheld Stabilizer. Ordered off of  It was one with a carbon fiber main shaft.  In my last post talked about about how on my day off will give it a try.  Well I did try and use it.  When I took it out off the box and gave it a look over.  Turns out it was missing a piece.  The shoe plate was not there.  This is the part the attaches to your camera.

Never had any problems buying off of  When back on to the site to see how you return an item.  Must say it is pretty easy.  You go back to the list of stuff you ordered.  There is a button to press called return.  Then they ask you from a drop down menu why you are returning it.  Once that done they give you options on ways to ship it back.  You choose one.  Then the give you instructions on how to pack the box up along with the shipping labels they send you.  Once they get the package back they will refund the money back on to my credit card with in seven days.  Plan to buy another one once this one is back in there hands.
