Interesting, yet local police enforcement bodies in the US have invested heavily in DJI. I do think these headlines are nothing short of propaganda because the US has fallen out with the Chinese yet almost everything built today with electronics involved comes from China. While the report doesn’t name a specific company, Shenzen-based DJI, which […]

Automatic Dependent Surveillance—Broadcast (ADS–B) is a surveillance technology in which an aircraft determines its position via satellite navigation and periodically broadcasts it, enabling it to be tracked. The information can be received by air traffic control ground stations as a replacement for secondary surveillance radar, as no interrogation signal is needed from the ground. It can also be received by other aircraft to […]

Interesting that DJI have entered this field of action cameras, thought not surprising as GoPro did bring out a drone called the Karma during October 2016. This is DJIs response to the Karma hitting GoPro where it hurts most. I can’t quite see where this camera is much different from the Hero 7 apart from […]

Finnish photographer Christoffer Relander shot a mesmerizing and surreal series of photos in which he used double-exposure to blend views of Hong Kong cityscapes and Scandinavian nature. With a focus on neon signs, the project is titled, “Neonland: Urban Overload.”

“In this project, I wanted to leave my comfort zone and […] explore two different environments on different sides of the globe, and blend them into a fictional and surreal world,” Relander tells PetaPixel.

The double exposures in the project were all created in-camera rather than using Photoshop.

I just love stories like these, the proper use of drone technology. Getting away from expensive helicopter rides to transport an organ from one hospital to another within a 3 mile radius. This is certainly a far better use of a drone than delivery of parcels, Amazon wants to pursue.
