Most frequent questions and answers
Ballachy is a platform dedicated to product reviews, shopping guides, and tips on everything you want to know related to photography, traveling, birdwatching optics, and any other activities related to the outdoors. Our team of experienced and passionate writers works around the clock to provide you with recommendations of the best products in your specific niche.
Our website covers a wide range of topics since we believe that many of these activities are interconnected. Our interest was initially in photography but it grew to encompass similar hobbies like traveling. You can expect to find content on our website about best-of gear reviews related to photography such as camera, tripods, and other gear reviews not specifically intended for photography (like reviews of the best spotting scopes).
We understand that shopping for gear can be complicated, confusing, and often time-consuming. The outdoors and photography industry is massive and sometimes difficult to navigate. For that reason (amongst many others), we created Ballachy with the hopes of simplifying all products into simple to understand and read text that specifics the pros and cons clearly. This would make it easier for the reader who’s interested in purchasing the product if it will work for them.
Because we want to provide extensive but also comprehensive buying guides, we select recommended products that members of our team have used or are currently using as well as look at the average customer reviews for each product. So, several factors go into determining the top choice and this also depends on the niche. For example. tripods are determined by weight, maximum weight capacity, maximum height, minimum height, materials used in the construction of the tripod, amongst many other factors! We state the reasoning for each product in our blog posts to ensure complete transparency.
