#TheLifesWayReviews @SonyElectronics RX100 VI Premium Compact #Camera #vLogging

Hi Friends, 

Only sometimes in your life, you come across gadgets which will take your breath away with their innovative products or the technology to touch your heart. I have seen in my lifetime a lot many products which have made me fallen in love with them. It's a different matter that those love me back or not! Sony is always one company which always touches your heart and my association with Sony goes a long back as I bought my first pair of earphones with my first savings ever for Rs 250 which is equal to R50 and it was the biggest purchase for me. From that time I have been able to buy and collect stuff from Sony Handycam to iPod dock, from ebook-reader to noise-canceling headphones I had it all and so much that Sony Electronics - India Country Manager wanted to come to visit my place to see the collection.

Coming back to the topic of this review is this awesome, little yet powerful camera to carry easily for vLoggers like me in the making and other enthusiasts alike -  
#TheLifesWayReviews @SonyElectronics RX100 VI Premium Compact Camera
  • CON - 4k Video shooting capability with the limitation of 5 minutes at a single stretch. It's a really big feature on a small camera of this size. 
#TheLifesWayReviews @SonyElectronics RX100 VI Premium Compact Camera
  • PRO - The screen can be twisted and turned towards the front which the shooter or vLogger takes the videos. This makes it easy to watch yourself as you shoot and talk to the camera. 
#TheLifesWayReviews @SonyElectronics RX100 VI Premium Compact Camera
  • PRO - The amazing picture captured quality with 20.1MP Exmor RS CMOS sensor fitted with ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T 24-200mm zoom lens. The photos are very clear and focussed in auto mode as I didn't have much time to experiment with any other modes. 
#TheLifesWayReviews @SonyElectronics RX100 VI Premium Compact Camera
  • PRO - Amazing video quality in such a compact size camera which can be easily carried in your pockets. You can shoot anywhere anytime using this compact camera. This is one is the best feature that can enable you to shoot and share your videos immediately on your social media channels if you are an influencer or YouTuber

  • Neutral - Price of the product is equivalent to mid-level DSLR camera so it's not for everyone and works in a niche market segment. The only thing is that this camera is a little bit expensive and you need to have a defined purpose for the same.

  • CON - There is no water and dust resistant in the camera so you have to take special care of the gadget. You need to be careful of where you are shooting.

  • Neutral - You need a special card to capture 4k videos and that's an additional investment from your end after buying an expensive niche camera. If you have that card already, then you shall make the best use of the same. I didn't have that card and it was only a review unit for 2 weeks it didn't make any sense for me to invest in the same. 
#TheLifesWayReviews @SonyElectronics RX100 VI Premium Compact Camera

  • CON - Battery life is not in favor of the camera. You definitely need to invest in another spare battery. But the best part is that's the camera can be charged with any smartphone battery pack you must be already carrying in your backpack or car or bag. 
#TheLifesWayReviews @SonyElectronics RX100 VI Premium Compact Camera
  • PRO - Life is always different and innovative with Sony and it will continue to be so as this camera. Once you have this camera in your life, you will be able to do everything under the blue and starry skies. 
#TheLifesWayReviews @SonyElectronics RX100 VI Premium Compact Camera #vLogging
I have fallen in love with this camera and really wanted to drop my DSLR and buy the Alpha range of Sony camera but the price is way too much for my budget. I will continue to use whatever I have now and may be in future, I might be invested in the new versions of the Sony mirrorless cameras.

#TheLifesWayReviews @Xiaomi Mi Band 2 #SmartBand @TheGearbest #HealthyLiving

Hi Friends, 

As mentioned in my earlier post about the Xiaomi products, they are not only innovative but also value for money. It goes for all the products, I have seen or used till date. The product which people fell in love with was the first Mi Band which gave a possibility to measure your steps at the cheapest price linked to your smartphone via an app and then when the second Mi Band 2 came with Heart Rate monitoring, it was an instant hit. I remember not getting it on Amazon.in when I tried to order for the same. It was always out of stock and same is the case with the new version of the device called Mi Band 3.
#TheLifesWayReviews @Xiaomi Mi Band 2 #SmartBand @TheGearbest
GearBest was able to send me the Mi Band 2 fast enough but the custom took some time to clear in South Africa but finally the band reached me within a week and I started using the same immediately. It's definitely one of the online stores which can give competition to the likes of Alibaba, Amazon, takealot.com, Flipkart and many others around the world. The device packaging consists of a silicone band, a charger base and the main unit itself. The main unit can be easily clipped into the silicon band after charged from the charging base. The charging base is USB and can be inserted into your laptop or any of the smartphone chargers.
#TheLifesWayReviews @Xiaomi Mi Band 2 #SmartBand @TheGearbest
The main features of the Smartband are Bluetooth 4.0 which help to connect to the smartphone apps immediately and pushes the data collected to the app. The OLED 0.46 inch touch screen displays time, distance, calories, and heart rate with a single gentle touch on the circular button.
#TheLifesWayReviews @Xiaomi Mi Band 2 #SmartBand @TheGearbest
Heart Rate monitoring now is far more advanced with accurate measurements which can be tracked to check the kind of exercises routine you can follow. Also, the Mi Band 2 measures your sleep and also gives you the notification if you have been sitting on your desk for long without any movement. It helps you to relax your body and also complete your daily goal of 7000 steps.
#TheLifesWayReviews @Xiaomi Mi Band 2 #SmartBand @TheGearbest
The overall weight of the device is less than 20 grams and you won't even fell the Smartband to be on your wrists. The device is powered with Li-Polymer battery capacity of 70mAh which will last you for at least 5 days and with notifications switched ON it will be around 3 days. The company claims a standby time of 20 days. The device can be charged fully in around 3 hours.
#TheLifesWayReviews @Xiaomi Mi Band 2 #SmartBand @TheGearbest
The biggest problem I faced with Silicon bands in Fitbit is that they start itching on my hand wrist after a while. This was not the case with this one but over time, you might face some itching. 
#TheLifesWayReviews @Xiaomi Mi Band 2 #SmartBand @TheGearbest
Buy the device from here. Currently, my 10 years old daughter is really enjoying this smart band and soon I am sure she will want to have a colored screen smartwatch and by that time Xiaomi will definitely bring something new to the market! Till that time...

#TheLifesWayReviews @BodyGlove Mini Earbuds #Bluetooth @Gammatek #bodyglove #GammaTek

Hi Friends, 

I love earphones and I attract them in my life more than anything else. If I participate in any contest the prize will be earphones or headphones and if I get a goodies bag there it will be some kind of earphones and headphones. If I go to some event or expo, there also I will get a lot of cheap earphones at the various stalls. My life it seems is revolving around all kinds of earphones - cheaps ones to the expensive ones for review. 
#TheLifesWayReviews @BodyGlove Mini Earbuds #Bluetooth @Gammatek #bodyglove #GammaTek
I received these Body Glove Mini Bluetooth Earbuds from Gammatek as a replacement for my Airstream earphones which was not working perfectly. And man these ones are on my ears since the day it arrived. I wear it all the time, in office, during my practice walks for 25kms and in the actual 25km walk. These are really some great earphones in a small package when I first saw them, I didn't think them to become so close to my heart. 
#TheLifesWayReviews @BodyGlove Mini Earbuds #Bluetooth @Gammatek #bodyglove #GammaTek
Let's see these earphones in a detailed review on my blog and all the photos are taken using the Canon 77D Camera on my desk at home. The first thing to observe is the small charging case which can also keep the earphones inside while you travel or to carry with you and to recharge in case the battery dies on them after use. The charging case has built-in 300mAh Li-Polymer battery which can easily charge the 48mAh earbuds max 3 times fully in around 1 and half hour. The charging case is charged using the MicroUSB cable and a red light shows the same. There are also holes at the top of the charging case to show that earbuds are also getting charged. Once earbuds are fully charged, the light on the top turns itself off.
#TheLifesWayReviews @BodyGlove Mini Earbuds #Bluetooth @Gammatek #bodyglove #GammaTek
These Body Glove earbuds are Bluetooth v4.2 enabled with HSP, HFP, A2DP and AVRCP profiles supported. The operating range for these earbuds is only 10 meters as compared to others where it's marked at 30 meters. But I think it's kept small to keep the earbuds close to your devices. The music playback time which I could get on these earbuds is around 2 hours 30 minutes on a full charge. My 15km walk generally takes me around 3 hours to complete and in one charge I can easily come back on this BodyGlove Earbuds. You can accept the calls also on this device and on my earbuds, I can only listen on the right side earbuds and nothing comes on the left side. I am not sure if this is the defective piece or these are built that way. 
#TheLifesWayReviews @BodyGlove Mini Earbuds #Bluetooth @Gammatek #bodyglove #GammaTek
Using Body Glove Mini Bluetooth Earbuds is easy as it will turn automatically ON when taken out from the charging case and also turns themselves OFF when inserted back into the charging case and closing the lid. The earbuds are equipped with Multi-function buttons (MFB) and you can do several operations using the same. Switch them ON and OFF by pressing them for 2 seconds. The right and left earbuds always play a voice prompt to tell that they are ready to be connected to your smartphones or whatever Bluetooth enabled gadget you are using. You can use these earbuds to answer or reject a call, increase volume up and down, skipping to previous and next songs, pausing and playing the music along with resetting all pairing records to start afresh. These earbuds are only 4.6 grams each and total weight will be 41 grams.
#TheLifesWayReviews @BodyGlove Mini Earbuds #Bluetooth @Gammatek #bodyglove #GammaTek
In the last let's come down to the audio performance as that's the main thing these earbuds are built for. The earbuds are powered using 6mm drivers with impedence of 16 Ohms and sensitivity of 90+-3dB. The driver frequency range will be 20-20kHz as generally mentioned for all these earbuds and headphones. The earbuds have a balanced sound and really gives a solid impact on your ears. It's not bass boosted but has a little bit of the same in the right amount. It's like a surround sound effect using both the earbuds positioned rightly into your ears. In this small package, the audio effects on these earbuds are amazingly great. I totally fell in love with these and these are my carryable earbuds in my pockets all the time. Thanks to Body Glove and Gammatek for sending the same.
