If you haven’t heard yet, I’ll be the one to tell you! As a huge fan and customer of DJI, this news comes as very exciting to me! A recently leaked photo by DroneDJ (linked below) shows what appears to be a drone with the writing Mavic 2 on one of the arms. This article by DroneDJ discusses the drone and some of the features that it may have! Leave a comment if you think you’ll buy one! (Get a DJI Mavic at Adorama)

Here’s a video that talks about this even more, also by DroneDJ.

Let's talk about the DJI Mavic 2 “Enterprise” edition photos

The Nikon 1 line has been ignored for a few years now, but it was only recently that Nikon confirmed the end of the 1 series, saying “The Nikon 1 series cameras, lenses and accessories are no longer in production.” This article discusses this, and also discusses what Nikon may bring in place of the 1 series.

Skateboarders were never paid much attention to in terms of media, until the mid-60’s. Since then, skateboarding has created its own media culture which still exists today. This article discusses the interesting history and the rise of skateboarding photography.

Last week I told you about the Full-Frame Mirrorless cameras that Nikon has been developing. Now, there is more information about this, including the release date, pricetag, and more specs about the camera itself. This is very exciting! The article below talks about the mirrorless cameras and what we know so far.

This next article is very interesting! A software company has created a camera that can detect and analyze the mood of ‘mobs’ to help predict when violence may be close to breaking out. This is designed to be used for police officers in areas hit by insurgency to detect when a mob will turn violent. This is super cool and I recommend this article to everyone!
