TWiP 484: DJI Strikes Back
TWiP 484: DJI Strikes Back
On the heels of the mountain of news streaming out of the Photokina photography show last week, DJI held their cards close to the vest to let things die down and made their announcement THIS week. Last week GoPro impressed with their new small-sized drone system dubbed Karma. DJI answers this week with a similarly sized drone, with more capability called Mavic. Also, Panasonic reveals details about the successor to their wildly popular GH4 mirrorless camera called, wait for it — the GH5! Spoiler alert… This thing shoots 6K video!

Coming soon to The TWiP Network .. a brand new show called PocketShooters!
We believe this is an extremely important show, and the time has come for mobile phone photography to be taken seriously. The capabilities in late model iPhone and Android devices is nothing short of amazing, and the image quality is getting close to what previously was only achievable using PROFESSIONAL cameras. This show will explore the vast universe of tools, software and techniques that you can employ to begin creating pro-level mobile phone shots today.
Head over to twip.pro/pocketshooters and get on our early announcement list, and be one of the first to check out this brand new show on The TWiP Network.

I think Flickr is unfortunately overlooked by many, perhaps due to poor marketing on their part. I find zero competitors for what they do. Not 500px (who wants photo voting, really, and we’ve seen enough perfect landscapes for many lifetimes). And not Smugmug, which I use, but is a social desert. Flickr groups and the camera roll are the two killer features. The groups are wide ranging, with many of course near dead but some quite lively and interesting. And the camera roll allows me to use their desktop uploader without worry that my normal photo stream will be filled up with all my blurry vacation shots. Images are sorted into albums mirroring my folder structure on the computer, and they remain full sized, unlike with Google Photos. No raw storage though. I have the unlimited “no ads” Pro plan for $24 annually. I think the free option is capped at 1000 gigs. As a bonus, the uploader works quickly and doesn’t crash, unlike Google’s.
Anyway, while it’s not a website designed for professionals, it is designed for enthusiasts, and it works well. I’d hate to see it go.
