About Bryan

My name is Bryan Hong.

I am from Los Angeles.

In my previous lives I’ve been an automotive writer, theatrical stage manager, web developer and professional gambler. And we haven’t even gotten to any of my hobbies yet!

I went to UC San Diego and later, LA Film School.

Today I primarily work in the film industry on low budget independent feature films, commercials and music videos as a grip and when I’m lucky, cinematographer.

I have an intensely curious personality. I hate wondering. So I have a tendency to want to try everything and explore every place and experience everything. I wanna know why. I wanna know what love is. And I want you to show me. Wait. What? lol.

I’m pretty active at my church, The English Ministry of GMl.

I consider myself a driving enthusiast and I’ve had a life-long love affair with video gaming. I’m fascinated by linguistics and just learning about how everything is connected and constantly evolves. I speak English and Spanish and a little bit of Russian. I understand Korean but I cannot speak it. Sad, I know. I love playing music. People who know me know that music is always coming out of me :)

And lately I’ve gotten really into running!

Long Term Review: Peak Design Everyday Sling 5L camera bag

I watched quite a few YouTube reviews on this bag before I decided to buy it. All those reviews were aglow with adoration for all of the interesting design elements of this bag but after using it for about 6 months I realized that none of these reviewers had ever really lived with this bag in the real world.

To sum it up, I have a few gripes about this bag. The first is that the front pocket is really too small to be useful for very much. The second is that the straps tend to work themselves loose which can lead to the bag unceremoniously dropping to the ground. My final grip is that it will not fit a full frame DSLR comfortably (or at all, depending on the camera). However this is not really a legitimate gripe as they market this bag primarily toward mirrorless and compact DSLR users.

But there are still many things that I do love about this bag and I’m still using it as my main camera bag for travel and day to day use.
