DJI got the size and weight right with the Mavic Mini

There were a lot of camera related announcements. The one that stood out for me is the new DJI Mavic Mini. It’s the cheapest drone in the range and features a few specs suited for beginners. The size and weight are the ones I feel matter the most. In a world where smartphones have given […]

Be happy with your camera

The internet comment section is heavily focused on specs, rather than what makes a camera a joy to use. The newly announced Sony A9II is the perfect example. Sony already had a highly praised sports professional camera – the A9 – and they improved upon the things pros need: ergonomics, dust and moisture resistance, faster […]
