VLOG 1 – Burritos & Changes


Our first We Fancy Vlog!

Vlogging with an A7S II can be challenging because no flippable screen. Making sure you’re framed right or in focus is just a giant guessing game. To try and combat this huge problem with Sony Cameras, well at least the A series, we decided to make a custom screen bracket that would fit snuggly to the bottom of the A7S II. Our screen of choice is the 4K capable iKan VL35. It is crispcrispy… crisptastic. Gets a clear readout from the A7S II and has some awesome built-in features.

There’s an area in Seoul where you can find almost anything you need. This area spans from Euljiro 3(sam)-ga (을지로 3-가) in an eastwardly direction and runs up along the Cheongyecheon (청계천). You can find hundreds of tradesmen that can help you with things like metalworking and welding for more advanced DIY projects.

We visited one such tradesman to help us make our bracket with Prof. Brohaus.

Warning: You will need to be able to speak Korean. There are very few, if any, tradesman that can speak anything other than Korean

Xander mocked up a rough design of the bracket with some measurements on Photoshop. We gave the design to the tradesman and he told us to come back in 5 days! Easy, breezy, beautiful, Covergirl.

We then headed to Coreanos Kitchen in Itaewon for lunch, one of our favourite restaurants! Check out the review here.

Afterward, we checked in to Nori Table to catch up with our friends James and Solomon. If you go to Nori Table, you can try a roll that Haeppy created in our Sushi Roll challenge with SNSD’s Hyoyeon, called the Haeppy Ending. Why? Cause once you have a Haeppy Ending you’ll be satisfied. Get it? Get it.

Finally we headed over to meet travel YouTubers, the Vagabrothers, Marko and Alex. After filming some collaborations we went to the best all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ restaurant, Hi-Meat (하이미트).

That concluded our first vlog! If you enjoyed it check out the playlist here.
