One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Swiss Gear Sherpa Camera Case

I’ve had this Swiss Gear Sherpa camera case for more than a week now to protect and store my Canon PowerShot SD780 IS. I went with this instead of the traditional Canon Leather Case that I normally would go with, like I did for my Canon PowerShot SD630.

What I was looking for was a smaller camera case than the Canon leather case. But I wasn’t finding any luck at any of the brick-and-mortar stores for instant gratification. I came across this Swiss Gear case and it wasn’t smaller, but bigger. Funny thing is that it felt smaller in the hands despite the larger physical dimension. Maybe it’s because it’s a soft case and not a hard one.

The Canon PowerShot SD780 IS is a small camera. Because of its small size, it slides very easily into the Swiss Gear camera case. It has a lot of extra room with a good amount of padding. Not as much padding as the Canon leather camera case, but good enough for the SD780 IS.

What sold me on the Swiss Gear case besides price was the extra space where you can keep a spare battery and a SD media card. I just don’t see why many camera designers not design extra pockets and such for things like this, Canon included. A media card pocket wouldn’t take that much room!?! I found myself looking for a place to carry a spare battery and media card when I had the traditional camera cases. And as a guy, and don’t carry a purse, it sucked. I don’t like my pockets full of items.

The only real downside to this case that many cases also suffer from is the ability to snap this to a belt or backpack strap without removing/undoing your belt/strap. It does have a belt loop, but one that can’t snap on and off. It shouldn’t be hard to design something like, this since it would basically use the same design as cell phone cases these days.

Now, the question is, would I recommend it? The answer is yes. I am looking forward for this case to last me a while.

Flambeau AZ3 Zerust Tackle System, Fishing Tackle Bag

A photo product review of the Flambeau Outdoors AZ3 Zerust Tackle System, fishing tackle bag. I went with a bag instead of your traditional hard cased tackle box. Plus, I’m a big fan of tackle box/bags that utilize these clear plastic containers. Even fisherman/anglers can be organized at times. Because less time looking, means more time fishing. Now on to the pictures…

Abu Garcia Ambassadeur 6600EXT

Here’s a photo product review of the Abu Garcia Ambassadeur 6600EXT fishing reel. This post is brought to you by Communicating Ideas by Visualnewbie and of course Hoheezee for lending us his brand new reel. I’m telling you, fishing can and in most cases will be costly as a hobby. But that’s usually part of the fun. Now on to the pictures…

This Abu Garcia Ambassadeur is a bit different than the other Abu Garcia fishing reels I’m used to and have. The handle, bail and drag placement are about the same, but that basically ends there. The alarm and free spool buttons are different in design as well as the whole body design. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t hesitate to add this to my collection.

Canon PowerShot SD780 IS, Part 2

Here’s a photo product review of the Canon PowerShot SD780 IS. This photo product review is a bit different in that it gives you different views and angles of the product that you normally wouldn’t see. Usually the only photos you see are from manufactures and sometimes are not enough.

So I bring you, my new camera, the Canon PowerShot SD780 IS in black…

Canon PowerShot SD780 IS

In some of the photos, I included my now backup camera, Canon PowerShot SD630, for comparison. The SD780 IS is not that smaller than the SD630, but when held in the hands, it does feel a lot smaller. It’s kind of weird. The texture is different between the two also. The SD630 has a silver finish that’s smooth while the SD780 IS isn’t. It has somewhat of a texture grip to it.

Canon PowerShot SD780 IS

After a long weekend of using it in Las Vegas during Memorial Weekend, it did well. I loved using it and the more I used it, the more I appreciated it. But, because I was using it so much and it was handled at all times. Even when I wasn’t completely there, if you know what I mean, the fingerprints and marks were very noticeable on the camera. Where the silver finish on the SD630 wouldn’t show as much. So, I had to wipe it down with my shirt every once in awhile. But the black just looks so damn slick…

There are more photos of the Canon SD780 IS HERE at Lapada Gallery. I’ll be adding more photos of the camera as I use it more. The next coming post will have a sample of a photo I took as well as a HD video from Las Vegas. So, be on the look-out for those in the next coming days.

Daiwa Sealine SL20SH Fishing Reel

Fishing is one of my favorite hobbies. And boy can they get expensive. So, here’s my buddy’s (Hoheezee) somewhat new fishing reel. He’s got so many that this one just sits in the box waiting to be used. The Daiwa Sealine SL20SH…

Daiwa Sealine SL20SH

Daiwa Sealine SL20SH

I basically have the same fishing reel. The Daiwa Sealine SL20SH. It’s a great small fishing reel as well as a great caster. One of the best reels that I’ve used to cast lead and lures as far as I can from the shore and pier. It has seen plenty of battles…

Daiwa Sealine SL20SH

What’s great is the oversized knobs to help bring in your catch. These handles are the same size as the larger models like the SL30SH and the SL40SH. The compact size is also great, but can have its downsides. With a reel this small, the amount of line it holds can be cut short when you hit a snag on the ocean floor. Thus, removing a good amount of line…

Daiwa Sealine SL20SH

All in all, the SL20SH is one of my go-to reels. And it hasn’t let me down yet. I created this photo product review to give the viewer a good amount of different looks to help make their decision since a picture is worth a thousand words.

GO HERE (LapadaGallery.com), to view more photos of the Daiwa Sealine SL20SH at different angles…

Thanks to my buddy Hoheezze for lending me this fine piece of machinery! And he’s got more to show off!

“A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work.”
