The drone industry’s big trend has been making these flying contraptions as small as possible. This effort, of course, is spearheaded by none other than DJI who launched the Mavic Pro and absolutely blew everyone’s mind.
The GoPro Karma drone will be available in Malaysia from May 7 this year. The drone will retail for RM5,999 and it comes bundled with the HERO5 Black camera as well. The first 50 buyers will get free drone flying lessons organised by GoPro at Tadom Hills in Banting. The drone will also be available for purchase online at Lazada, Shopee and 11Street on the same day. You can experience the drone for yourself at the GoPro roadshow that will be held from May 24 to 28 in Mid Valley.
GoPro is finally entering the 360-degree camera game with their very own product and it’s called the GoPro Fusion…or at least I think they are. After seeing the coverage for GoPro’s new toy, it sounds more and more like vapourware to us.
As VR and 360 content are becoming mainstream, Xiaomi has finally released its very own 360 camera. Released under its Mi Jia ecosystem brand, the Panoramic Camera has two 16MP fisheye lenses that can shoot 3.5K resolution videos and 23.8MP stills.
The DJI Mavic Pro is probably the best drone you can buy right now. It’s easy to use, shoots 4K videos and it’s ultra portable thanks to its foldable design. Now, the Shenzhen-based company is going even smaller with its upcoming drone that’s called the Spark.
We loved the Samsung Gear 360. It was the easiest — and one of the cheapest — ways to get your feet wet with 360-degree video and photos. Now we get to take a closer look at its successor and it looks….rather interesting.
The Samsung Galaxy S8‘s camera may not look much different from their current flagship smartphones but according to a new report, it looks like the upcoming flagship smartphone is capable of shooting 1000fps videos. That’s a thousand images in a second which is made possible by adding DRAM onto the camera sensor.
Mobile World Congress is a place where OPPO loves to showcase their technological breakthroughs. Last year, we saw a new fast-charging standard that topped up a smartphone’s battery in just 15 minutes. We also saw the SmartSensor three axis sensor stabilisation.
This year, OPPO is focusing on smartphone camera zoom and this is what they’ve come up with. It utilises two sensors and a periscope-style lens structure.
The Mobile World Congress is the biggest mobile tech event of the year. This year, we’re going to be covering it (as usual) and we thought we’d give you guys a quick glimpse into the kind of equipment we’re bringing to cover a massive event like this.
Sony may not be as great as before when it comes smartphones but they are definitely in the forefront of mobile photography with their range of camera sensors. You can find them in most flagship smartphones from Apple, Huawei and Samsung.
As everything looks dramatic in slow-mo, Sony is turning things up a notch with their brand new 3-layer CMOS sensor that shoots full HD 1080p videos at an incredible 1,000 frames per second. That’s crazy fast and Sony claims it is 8X faster than conventional image sensors.
