Unboxing The DJI Mavic Air

Published

on

It has arrived. I have really been looking forward to getting my hands on DJI’s latest drone the Mavic Air. What has really drawn me to this drone is its size and how portable it is. I do a lot of photo hiking in the summer and space in may camera backpack is definitely at a premium. To be able to have a 4K drone that can capture stunning images and videos with taking up very little space is really amazing. When you go back a few years and think of the gear you needed to bring with you to capture this kind of aerial footage it’s just mind-blowing … the Mavic Air can fit in your pocket.

This is more just an unboxing video, I will be doing a full review later on with footage and comparisons. I will be also uploading a 60 second version of my unboxing for those that just want to see what comes in the package with out all the commentary and fluff.

Review Of Polar Pro Katana For DJI Mavic Air | Hand Held Rig

Published

on

In this video we are taking a closer look at the Katana by PolarPro for the Mavic Air. This unit turns your DJI Mavic Air into a powerful hand-held stabilized camera rig. Now some may ask why you would want to turn you Mavic Air into a hand-held camera, a better question is why wouldn’t you want to! The Mavic air has a really good quality camera on board it records at 4K 60 FPS and at 100 MBS. The Mbits per second is higher that the iPhone and the GoPro Hero 6 so theoretically can capture a higher quality video. With its built-in gimbal for stabilized footage it makes for a great hand-held option and doesn’t require the expense of perhaps buying another camera if you wish to capture ground footage.

One of the really nice features of the PolarPro Katana is the fact that it is expandable. If you purchase a kit for the Mavic Air, but later purchase a DJI Spark the unit will be compatible. All you need to do is purchase the Spark specific mount, you don’t have to purchase a complete kit again. PolarPro also sells separately or in a kit a T-Grip handle that makes it easier to capture low footage. Currently the PolarPro Katana is compatible with the DJI Spark, Mavic Air, Mavic Pro/Platinum and I am confident that as DJI releases new compact drones, Polar Pro will make new mounts for them to make them work with the Katana system.

I have been using the PolarPro Katana for about a month now, I have had a good amount of time to test and play with it. I am really pleased with it performance and ease of use. Mounting the Mavic Air or other DJI Drones is quick and easy. The handles make it comfortable to hold and really helps you grab some beautiful stable footage. It comes apart nicely and easily fits into your backpack until your ready to use it again.

DJI Sling Bag Review | Best Case For The DJI Goggles

Published

on

If you have been looking for a storage solution for your DJI Goggles you may want to take a look at the DJI Sling Bag. This sling bag style case is designed to hold the DJI Goggles as well as a Mavic Pro or Mavic Air, it also works well with the DJI Spark. One of the really nice features of the DJI Sling bag is the fact that it is convertible which means if you are only going to be storing the goggles inside, it zips up small so you don’t have all the extra bulk. However if you wish to carry a drone in the pack as well, there is plenty of room. It can hold a total of 3 Mavic Pro batteries plus remote, or 5 Mavic Air batteries and remote.

This bag looks and feels like a premium product, something that I have come to expect from DJI gear. One thing I have not been able to find out online is if the bag is water-resistant. Due to the design of the zippers and material I would have to say it is. Overall a nice case for the DJI Goggles. Watch our review video featuring the DJI Goggles sling bag.
