Today, I want to give you a tour of the “Cavernas de Camuy”, or Camuy Caverns in English. The official name of this place is “Parque Nacional de las Cavernas del Río Camuy”. It consists of a series of caverns, of which “Cueva Clara”, or Clara Cave, is the cavern open to the public to go and experience. The cave is huge and there are a lot of bats inside. It is also a little cold inside since there is an underground river and the place is deep down. You must take a trolley that will transport you to the cave.
In this post, I’m going to show you the Guajataca Tunnel, located in Isabela, Puerto Rico. This is a popular place among tourists visiting the Island, as it has beautiful scenery inside, which includes the view to the ocean. This is a perfect place to go and relax. This is also a historic place since a train used to pass over here.
I hope you enjoyed it and take a look at other posts by me from Puerto Rico below:
In this post, I’d like to share with you one of the tunnels we have in Puerto Rico, called “Tunel Minillas”. Above this tunnel is the plaza that leads to “Centro de Bellas Artes de Santurce”. The tunnel is short, and is one of the most transited roads in Puerto Rico, as it is part of the highway that leads to the South or West of the Island.
At the moment of purchase, this drive was at $130, while the 4TB drive was at $120 at my local TigerDirect store, which, unfortunately, closed its doors, so for $10 more, I picked up the 5TB version.
This hard drive works great and is where I store my videos to later edit them. Having a 4K Camera means that lots of GB are used per video project, so this 5TB hard disk really helps me with storing my videos and editing them. The bad part of this hard disk drive is that it is unknown if this is one of those drives using Shingled Magnetic Recording, and I believe it does, because after some time, the drive becomes slow, so it seems it is writing some tracks that were overwritten because of this technology to allow for more storage space. Sometimes the write speeds go down to 20MB or even 10MB, which can be pretty slow, but normally the write speeds in this drive will reach speeds like 120MB/s, which is pretty fast when using a USB 3.0 cable.
It has to be noted, however, that this drive has been replaced by an updated model, so the write speed issue could have been resolved in the newer versions. I know the hard disk drive is not bad because I use a software called Hard Disk Sentinel to check out the health status of the drives, and also, after defragmenting the drive, the performance seems to have improved. Again, I suspect the performance issues are because of the Shingled Magnetic Recording.
Here is the unboxing video. Hope you like it!
Do you have this drive? Have you noticed performance issues with it? Let me know in the comments.
[4K Video] Unboxing Sandisk Extreme Pro 256GB UHS-I U3 Class 10 SD Card
In this video, I’ll be unboxing the Sandisk Extreme Pro SDXC UHS-I U3 Class 10 SD Card. This is the memory card I use with my Sony 4K Video Camera I wrote about yesterday. The memory is of very good quality and it indeed reaches the specified speed of 95MB/s read speed and 90MB/s of write speed. I am very pleased with this SD Card and I recommend it to others who need a very fast memory card to record beautiful memories with either a Video Camera or a Photo Camera that shoots pictures in RAW or DNG formats. This memory does not disappoint. Sandisk is well known for making high-quality memory cards. While other memory card brands have failed to me, Sandisk has never ever failed.
Here is the unboxing video:
Do you have a Sandisk memory card? Do you have another brand memory card? Does it work right for you? Have you ever had a memory card fail and you lost countless beautiful memories? Let me know in the comments below.
[4K Video] Unboxing the Sony FDR-AX33 4K Video Camera
Today, I’m sharing with all of you my Unboxing video of the Sony FDR-AX33, which is the 4K Camera I use to record all of my stuff since 2015 in spectacular 4K quality.
The camera is very, very good. It features a unique optical stabilizer where the lens actually moves to stabilize the image (Sony calls this system BOSS). It also records 4K videos in either 100mbit/s or 60mbit/s.
I always record my videos in the 100mbit/s mode. It does consume approximately 60-80GB per 1 hour of video, so be sure to get a large-capacity SD card. I myself use a 256GB UHS-I SD Card capable of writing at up to 90MB/s and reading at up to 95MB/s. With the 256GB SD Card, I can record up to 5 hours of 4K content continuously, unlike most smartphones, which are limited to either 5 or 10 minutes of 4K video recording.
The camera also can be charged with the included AC adapter, or by using the USB cable, but it will charge slower using the USB cable.
There’s a ring at the front of the camera that can be used for manual controls like Focus, Exposure, Aperture and White Balancing, so if you want to use the manual controls, you just have to press the “Manual” button and use the ring to adjust the settings. This is excellent because sometimes the camera will not focus on some objects and one has to either deal with it, wait for the camera to focus correctly or try to make it focus on an object, so the Manual Focus control really helps.
Overall, I’m very pleased with this camera and below the unboxing video, take a look at some posts that contain videos recorded with this camera. You’ll not be disappointed by the amazing quality this little camera has.
Today, I’m sharing with you my Unboxing video of the Aukey PA-T7 Dual Port USB Wall Charger with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 Technology and also a video I made comparing the size of this charger with the PA-U28 and PA-T9, both of which are single port USB Wall Chargers, the PA-U28 being a Quick Charge 2.0 charger and the PA-T9 being a Quick Charge 3.0 charger. All of these chargers work to charge smartphones, tablets, and even the Raspberry Pi and other Single Board Computers.

In this video, I’m going to be unboxing the 16GB DDR3 SODIMM Crucial Ballistix RAM Kit. I purchased this kit to upgrade my laptop’ s RAM from 8GB to 16GB as I was getting short on RAM when doing my 4K video renderings and they sometimes ended up in errors. 16GB of RAM fixed this video editing problem and I highly recommend these RAM sticks. They are very stable. Right now, I’m using it in my Mini-ITX desktop which is the machine I’m now using to render my videos for my youtube channel.
Here is the Unboxing video:
Do you have these RAM sticks or another brand? Does it works right for you? Let me know in the comments 🙂
[4K Video] Unboxing Dollar Tree $1 Micro USB Cables
Today, I’m sharing with you my unboxing video of some Micro USB cables that can be bought on Dollar Tree for just $1 dollar + tax. These cables, while cheap, are actually very good! Of course, they require proper handling, or they may become worse after a short time, but if handled correctly, they will last a lot.
The cables work excellent with my smartphones and tablets, and they can charge them at full speed using a standard 5V 2A Wall Charger or a Quick Charge-enabled charger.
In today’s post, I will be sharing with you some unboxing videos of some of the Headphones available in Dollar Tree for just $1 dollar + tax. How do these extremely cheap headphones sound? Awful. They should only be bought if you really don’t care about sound quality or it is just temporarily while you get higher quality in-ear headphones.
Here are the unboxing videos:
Do you have a cheap in-ear headphone pair that actually sounds good? Let me know in the comments.
