DJI’s Mavic Pro looks like an amazing drone. It’s this small, powerful and easy to fly drone that will turn even the most amateur of drone pilots into aerial photography experts. So, naturally, when we got our hands on the brand new Mavic Pro, the first person we passed it to for testing was our video guy who has never flown a drone before.
Here’s what happened.
If I were to pick a theme for tech in 2016, it would be creating immersion. Everything from smartphones, cameras and the development of virtual reality has all been about giving the user (that’s us!) the most amount of immersion possible.
With how popular VR and 360-degree got over the course of the year, there’s no doubt that many of you are interested in trying your hand at creating and sharing such content. But which 360-degree camera do you get? If I were to buy one, it would definitely be the Samsung Gear 360. Here’s why.
Canon hasn’t had the best time competing in the mirrorless segment of the camera market. Their previous EOS M devices have all felt a little lackluster, most commonly plagued with autofocus problems. However, at Photokina this year, the company launched their best mirrorless camera yet — the EOS M5.
Now, Canon is officially launching this “mirrorless EOS 80D” here in Malaysia and you can pick one up for yourself at the end of December.
Yes, you read that right, there is no typo there. Meet the Casio Exilim FR110H Outdoor Recorder — the rugged action camera with a 1.9MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor and really large individual pixels to help you see in the dark.
We reported earlier that GoPro’s fabled Karma drone was falling out of the sky, which is obviously terrible especially since the drone itself has received a lot of praise from critics. Yeah, it isn’t as good of a drone as something like the DJI Mavic Pro, but you’re getting a solid package with the Karma, Karma Grip and GoPro HERO5.
Well, if you’ve been eyeing a stabiliser for your brand new GoPro HERO5 before the drones started failing, the good news is that GoPro is now selling their Karma Grip standalone.
DJI had recently introduced its Inspire 2 drone which comes with two cameras. It looks badass with its tougher construction and the legs are also retractable so it won’t block the camera.
When it was first announced, the DJI Inspire 2 was capable of flying up to 108km/h (67mph) and 0-80km/h (50mph) is done in just 4 seconds. Unfortunately, DJI has to put a cap on those speeds and it’s for a good reason.
While its rival is falling out of the sky, DJI is hammering home its dominance in the consumer drone market with two truly stunning new devices — the DJI Inspire 2 and DJI Phantom 4 Pro. Get a handkerchief ready because you’re about to start drooling.
If you own a GoPro Karma or have placed an order for one, here’s some bad news. GoPro is announcing a full recall for its first-ever drone. This is due to a performance issue where the Karma may suddenly lose power in mid-flight.
Fujifilm Malaysia just launched their latest Fujifim X-A3 mirrorless camera that they say is designed for the selfie generation. It comes with several features designed to help you take the perfect selfie.
The question I have is: Do you really need a mirrorless APS-C camera with interchangeable lenses to capture selfies?
DJI‘s newest drone, the Mavic Pro, is as badass as it is tiny. Despite being foldable enough to fit in your palm and weighing just under 750g, the Mavic Pro has all the features (and the same camera sensor) as the much larger Phantom 4 drone — plus a little more.
Want to know more? Well, we got to spend some time with it during its official launch here in Malaysia. Here’s everything you need to know about the Mavic Pro.
