Audio-Technica ATR 3350 Lavalier Mic Review

This is a review of the Audio-Technica ATR 3350 Lavalier Microphone. I use it mainly with my Kodak Zi8 camera for tabletop reviews.

This is the first cavalier microphone I've ever purchased, so I made sure to research it before taking the leap.

For under $30 it functions well and should be a suitable entry-level external mic for anyone looking for something to improve their audio (just as long as there's an external mic input, that is.)

Straight out of the box, it comes with a battery, a windscreen, the actual mic. It has a very long cord in case you need to have some distance between you and your camera.

The only downside is that it doesn't have an indicator light that lets you know whether or not the switch is on or off (can get very annoying if you're forgetful like me!). It also doesn't have a way to tell if how much juice the battery has left.

Otherwise, not too bad.

Watch below for my vid review.

Mountain House Review Part 2: Freeze Dried Food

Hello everyone! Here's part 2 of the Mountain House freeze Dried Food Pouch review. Apologies for the delay. The audio track for the original footage I recorded a few weeks ago was barely audible & I havent had the chance to re-record till today. so here goes:

The preparation for this is pretty straightforward. Boil water (3/4 cup for this one), pour in pouch after removing the oxygen pack, stir, and seal back up. Let it sit for about 10 minutes then serve.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this as far as flavor goes but it was surprisingly tasty - not in a stale, been sitting around forever kind of tasty. It was pretty good.

I've tasted three different entrees so far and I like all of them. This kind of food supply would be beneficial for campers / hikers / RVers / Van dwellers / road trippers or just to have around the house for general preparedness reasons. I would even recommend this for people / families that go on road trips. I know with my family, we get sick and tired of eating the same thing when traveling so I think I'm going to have to take a box of these for our next trip.
It definitely wouldn't hurt to have a few of these in your pantry. It doesn't take up much room at all and the price for each pouch is reasonable.

Disclosure: Nitro-Pak did supply a few of these for review but this is not a paid advertisement meaning I did not receive cash compensation to do this review. I try to be fair and objective with any reviews I do because I'm a consumer too. I like to seek out reviews before I commit to a product and I would want bloggers & vloggers out there to do the same that way I know for sure if the product is worth purchasing or not. There, now that's out of the way. =)

Many thanks to Nitro-Pak for the samples.
