DJI Mini 3 Pro review: DJI’s most compact model finally goes ‘pro’

Introduction The Mini 3 Pro is the newest model in DJI’s series of lightweight, sub-250g drones and the most exciting in the series so far. DJI seems poised to reset expectations for what consumers can expect in such a compact model. DJI introduced the original Mavic Mini, with a small, 1/2.3″ sensor and basic features, back in October 2019. A bit over a year later, it ditched the ‘Mavic’ moniker with the Mini 2. The Mini 2 added important features, such as Raw photo capture, but still had the same small sensor and...

By Spencer Cox 1 CommentLast Updated On May 7, 2022 « » The lens that I’ve been using the longest as a photographer is the Nikon 105mm f/2.8G Macro – the F-mount lens, that is.

Retro Review: 24 years after its release, is the iconic Nintendo Game Boy Camera still fun?

Released in 1998, the Nintendo Game Boy Camera was many people’s first foray into digital photography. While it couldn’t offer the resolving power of contemporaneous cameras like the Nikon Coolpix 900 and the Canon PowerShot Pro70, both of which offered optical zoom and roughly 1MP resolution, the 0.014MP Game Boy Camera offered Game Boy owners a new, fun way to interact with their handheld gaming machine and, for many, their first experience with digital photography. Given the camera’s important history and continued...

Users normally worry about storage insofar as how much storage there is and how fast you can read and write files to the storage. However, a phone’s storage technology can be more – or less – power efficient. Samsung has unveiled its latest UFS 4.0 flash storage for...
