iPhonography Equipment Upgrades

A Casual Walk Along Calgary’s River Pathway.

The 4K video is a montage of Videos and Stills. All taken with the iPhone SE and in many cases the Wide Angle or 10X Macro OlloClip.

A simple enough title… But what equipment was upgraded ?  …honestly it’d be more accurate to call it a Blessing.

For years I’ve had, used and thoroughly enjoyed my iPhone 4.  In recent weeks and days though I’ve been blessed and able to leap up to the iPhone SE and an OlloClip system which gives me a whole whack of new options I can do for photos, videos and projects.

As always… I’m learning as I go but now I can do it in 4K, Slo-Mo or even Timelapse …combine those options with Macro, Wide_Angle, Fisheye (and in the future zoom lenses ) and I have a complete set of photo and video gear in my pocket…Couple all that with a tripod and well… 🤓😎🔬📽📹📷

One really cool thing about the iPhone SE (for me anyways) is that it’s in the body of an iPhone 5/5s …some accessories cost less because of this.  I’m guessing partly because their packaging doesn’t say iPhone SE but only iPhone 5/5S.

This little post is just my excitement about the iphonography upgrade… it’s not even getting into the Touch ID or Apple Pay amongst other things.

All of that said… Below are some Pics and Clips of what I’ve been able to do with my iPhone SE and in many cases OlloClip.   Yes… Some of these may already posted on social media.

All the media in this post was taken by me on this iPhone SE over the course of a day.  Simply because I thought these things looked… Cool.


All of this said… you may find my newer posts featured more on my Google+ Page, simply due to some size constraints here.


Final Seconds of Coffee Brewing

Title pretty much sums it up; those beautiful seconds where the brewed coffee is sucked back down into the carafe of my Bodum Santos/Pebo Siphon Pot.

Definetely not the fastest way to brew but still fun (for me anyways).

For you coffee… sno… er… purists:

I measured the filtered water (Zero Water) out to 36 oz and the grounds (not freshly ground😒) to about 50g.   Let it dwell for approx 4 min. (Did it for less time before and it wasn’t strong enough)

I’m still undecided if I like adding the coffee grounds before the water starts rising or after.

Did I mention this was a $5 impulse buy at MCC Thrift Shop?  😇😲☕️☕️☕️

I’ve been having some fun this Christmas Holiday Season especially with a small spherical lens I found.  You may see the lens as a small crystal ball but to me it’s a cool sphere.

I’m calling it a lens because it appears to magnify light or reflection shone through it.   Some simple things I’ve done with it… capture a small rainbow 0r spectrum, reflect a laser and make a small led bulb look much cooler against my wall.




Hi there,

I suppose you could consider this a test flight of mine for Word Press.  Simply seeing how easy it is to use in terms of posting fresh and random content… and having that content end up on specific social channels.

I’m fairly certain that the above paragraph got cut off if this made it to twitter and that the photo may only be link; if the posting annoyances from other multi-social platforms hold true here.

An introduction?  I’m Cudtz.  Pleased to meet you…  now to figure out what I might post next.
