ULANZI V2 Case First Impressions

"This is a great combo."

It also has a bigger battery than the other cameras I've tried. I will be taking this to my trip to the Philippines. This is a very well-made little camera. I tried an 128G SD card and it worked. And it’s not so much the video quality, but rather the size.
