ParaZero SafeAir is a parachute for your DJI drone. With more and more drones hitting the skies every day, the is an ever-increasing need for safety and responsible operation. Having a parachute safety system on your drone sounds like a great idea, so let’s take a closer look at what the SafeAir system has to offer.
The new Dynacore D-155MS 155 watt battery is following a trend that I like. A slimmer form-fitting style battery to mount on the back of the camera with some kick to boot. This not only looks nice but keeps the camera smaller and more compact.
The Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K took NAB 2018 by storm. It really was the talk of the show and everyone prior to it was hoping for an update and they got it. The camera is now shipping but it’s not available in large quantities yet. Demand is high and production doesn’t look to be matching it. While this seems to be an issue with Blackmagic I thought they solved this with the release of the URSA Mini Pro but the Pocket 4K seems to be business as usual when it comes to delivery.
The DJI Ronin-S has an impressive payload capacity of up to 3.6 kg (8 lbs), but the gimbal itself weighs 1.86 kg (2.76 lb). This means you could potentially end up trying to use a camera/lens/gimbal combination that weighs in at 5.46 kg (12.03 lb). That’s a lot of weight for a single-handed gimbal no matter which way you look at it. If you are going to run a heavy set up you really do need a two-handed solution. Well, SmallRig may just have what you are looking for, the Dual Handgrip for DJI Ronin S Gimbal.
