Unknown Speaker 0:00 Hey guys, Taylor here with another video. And today, this video is for all of you pet owners out there who have a hard time leaving your pet alone at home. Leaving pets alone can cause a ton of stress and worry on our part. But it can also be very difficult for your pet. They can experience things like separation anxiety, and even depression, because basically, they don’t understand why you’ve left or when you’re coming back. Now there is a really great solution out there for this problem that doesn’t involve staying home all the time with your pet. And that is by using a pet camera. What is a pet camera you might ask? Well, basically, it’s a way to send live streaming video to your smartphone. And most offer two way communication so you can actually talk to your pet or they can see you some pet cameras even dispense treats, or allow you the ability to play games with your pets. Basically, it’s a way to check in on your furry pal to make sure they’re okay, as well as give them some audio or video encouragement to make sure that they’re staying entertained and pacified throughout the day. So today, we’re gonna be breaking down our favorite pet cameras and going through some of the benefits and features of each to see which might be right for you in your particular situation. Now, as always, I will leave links to each of these products in the description below. So feel free to check them out there if you’re interested as well, if I happen to come across any deals or discounts, I’ll put those in the description as well. So first up, we have the best overall pet camera, and that’s going to be the hikvision indoor pet camera. Now this pet camera is incredibly high quality, it produces an astonishing 2k HD video that’s very clear. And it also has a four time zoom functionality that can further enhance details, you’re able to fully remotely operate this camera and it does have a 350 degree horizontal panning and 100 degrees of tilt, you’ll actually be able to control all of this right from your smartphone. Now if your pet happens to be in a different room from the camera, you can actually call them over to the camera thanks to the two way audio communicator. It also features noise cancelling to block out any extraneous sound coming from your mic. One cool feature here to save some energy, the camera only operates when you’re using it to livestream to your smartphone. You can also set the camera to record on a local SD card or on a cloud server only when motion is detected. This camera can be connected to your home internet, either through Ethernet cable, or over a 2.4 gigahertz Wi Fi connection.

If you haven’t checked in on your pet in a while. This is great. If say your pet has a habit of destroying things in your home, you can see exactly what happened. And when. As I mentioned, there is two way communication with this camera. And even if the camera is in a darkroom, it does have powerful infrared LEDs for supremely clear night vision. The camera can be left free standing on a flat surface, or it can even be wall mounted. And there’s even a magnetic mount so you can clip it to a refrigerator.

Now for those of you who are on a bit of a tighter budget, we have a budget option for you. And that’s going to be the hotel’s indoor smart camera. One great thing here is even though this is a budget option, there’s no major sacrifices. There’s tons of great features here to make sure that your pet is safe at all times. It does have that noise canceling technology featured in some of our other models, as well as two way audio communication and IR cut technology that adds full color clarity to infrared night vision. In terms of mounting this camera can be left freestanding or even mounted onto a wall or ceiling. Just note the camera does rotate but only manually. So you’re going to want to find the best viewing angle in your home to ensure that you can spot your pet at all times. Unknown Speaker 4:02 If you do have other smart devices this camera is Alexa compatible and features nifty functions like motion tracking technology and automatic alerts.

But the really cool feature here is the treat tossing ability from your smartphone you can actually instruct the machine to toss a treat to your Dog. That way you can reward your dog for being good or for distracting it in moments of separation anxiety. One really cool feature here is called the doggy diary. And it will actually record your dog’s day and put it into an album for you to view later. So if you do have a dog at home, and you’re looking for a really cool option for your home, definitely check out the furbo treat tossing dog camera. Now for those of you who prefer cats, we have a great option for you as well. And that’s going to be the v star cam laser cat camera. Now cats are definitely more independent than dogs.

hey guys taylor here with another video now if you’re in the market for a mirrorless camera but you’re still somewhat new to the world of photography or videography then we have a great list for you today we’re going to be breaking down the best mirrorless cameras for beginners going through some of the benefits and features of each to see which might be right for you in your particular situation now as always i will leave links to each of these products in the description below so feel free to check them out there and do a little bit of your own research also if i happen to have any discounts deals or coupon codes i’ll drop those down below for you as well so kicking things off we have the best overall mirrorless camera for beginners and that’s going to be the canon eos m50 now the canon eos m50 is a compact mirrorless camera it’s got a beautiful bright sharp touch screen and it can be used to operate almost all of its core functions that means that you can do things like adjust focus points and also change exposure settings one great thing here is it’s also very easy to navigate and has a great menu system it also has a guide mode which will help you explain almost all of the features of this camera so you’ll be able to get a great grasp on all of its additional features and functions also the screen here is fully articulated so you can see what’s being displayed even when the camera is pointed directly at you that makes it a great option for those of you that are interested in starting a vlogging career now in terms of image quality here it does have high color accuracy out of the box and also broad dynamic range just note that image sharpness can decrease slightly at higher iso levels but you’ll only really notice it when you’re shooting in darker environments such as being outside at night now it also has a great autofocus system and that delivers great performance in both photography and fhd video and it is actually capable of tracking and maintaining focus on moving subjects in terms of video quality and fhd it does produce sharply rendered objects and surfaces there is some slight graininess if you’re recording in a dimly lit environment so just something to note also one really important feature here if you are interested in recording in 4k there are some limitations that you should know it’s locked at 24 fps and does produce a severe 1.58 time crop that means that you’re gonna have a tight field of view also autofocus and video stabilization does decrease noticeably when filming at this level also the battery level here isn’t great so if you are planning to use this for longer sessions you may want to bring a backup battery or have something to charge it that being said if 4k is not a huge priority for you and you don’t necessarily need to shoot for long periods of time without a backup battery then this can be a fantastic option and overall it is the best mirrorless camera for beginners that we’ve tested next up we have the best portable mirrorless camera for beginners and that’s going to be the canon eos m200 now this one has a fantastic portable design that is great to take with you on the go anywhere it can really easily be stored in either a coat pocket or a small bag and it has a great flip out touch screen with a sharp and bright screen so that you can use this outdoors in direct sunlight without many issues the menu system here is also really easy to navigate and it also does have a guide mode which will give you some additional information about all the features of the camera in terms of video quality here it has good video quality in 4k and decent video quality at fhd not only does it produce sharp footage in well-lit environments but it also has decently low levels of graininess when shooting in poorly lit surroundings again like shooting at night this one also does feature wide dynamic range and it has good noise handling capabilities just note that sharpness can decrease a little bit when you increase the iso level now this one doesn’t have any in-body stabilization but overall the image stabilization performance is exceptional that means that you’re going to be able to get a clear shot even at a relatively low shutter speed now again if you are prioritizing recording in 4k video just note that this one is also locked at 24 fps and it does have that tight crop of 1.57 time crop the autofocus system here also doesn’t do the best job of maintaining focus on people’s faces so it’s just something to note if you are filming something that’s fast moving or you’re interested in tracking a specific subject in terms of ports and inputs here it’s also somewhat limited it doesn’t have a microphone or headphone jack to improve your quality of audio or to help monitor audio levels but with all that said if you are interested primarily in something that’s portable and shooting video in 4k is not a priority for you then this could be a great handheld camera that you can take with you anywhere and will produce excellent quality photos last up we have the best mirrorless camera for beginners for video and that’s going to be the sony a6400 now this is also a very compact and easy to carry camera and it’s great for extended periods of time it’s also incredibly well built and has a fantastic flip out screen that’s both bright and spacious we were really impressed with the battery power on this one and a single charge should be enough to last you through a long shooting session this one also has great video recording quality in 4k and fhd and it produces sharply rendered object contours and surfaces also this one does have low levels of visual noise and that’s especially true when shooting in dimly lit environments which we were really impressed with so if you’re somebody that likes to shoot at night or in the dark this could be a great camera for you another thing we were impressed with was the autofocus system it does have superb performance while recording video and it also tracks moving objects and subjects faces without difficulty also for those of you interested in vlogging you will be happy to note that it does have a clean hdmi output and you can attach external recorders free of any overlays and you can even fit an auxiliary mic for higher quality audio in your footage now with this one usability is slightly down from some of the other options on our list the menu isn’t the easiest to navigate and it’s not the most intuitive but if you do spend some time with it you should be able to find all the functions you need relatively quickly but overall it’s an impressive camera and does have impressive quality and overall versatility which means that it’s a great option for those of you who are interested in shooting video and that’s why the sony a6400 has found a spot on our list today anyway guys if you are interested in picking up a new mirrorless camera and hopefully this video was
