4. DRONE: DJI MAVIC2 PRO
Drones are all the rage right now, and the DJI Mavic 2 Pro is the flagship of consumer drones. DJI has partnered with high-end manufacturer Hasselblad to build a camera with a 1in sensor for the Mavic 2 Pro. It’s great in low light, with a maximum ISO of 12,800, and can also shoot 10-bit 2K Dlog-M at 100Mbps, for the ultimate in high quality. It has 24-48mm optical zoom and supports four panorama modes including Sphere, 180-degree, Horizontal and Vertical. It can fly up to 44mph for a maximum of 30 minutes with low noise, giving you enough time to get your aerial shot. It’s intelligent, easy to use and supports Hyperlapse, ActiveTrack 2.0 and more.
5. JIB: VARIZOOM VZQUICKJIB2 CAMERA JIB £1950/$1995 www.varizoom.com
The VZQUICKJIB2 is the answer to those who love all the options that come with the range-topping SnapCrane, but aren’t ready to spend that much. With this crane, you get an economical but secure captive clamp system for extending the jib, along with lanyard-attached stainless aircraft pins for quick assembly. The jib arm is slim and has less air resistance than jibs utilising a four-arm support system. It can also be adjusted up to three feet for tremendous flexibility and will mount to any 100mm tripod. Its brake system is designed to add significant drag, which is forgiving enough to slide under extreme force. The stainless aircraft pins that insert through sealed radial ball bearings at the tilt base and sleeve bearings at the camera platform result in silent, smooth motion, and the camera platform also has a built in spirit level for quick reference and adjustment. The VZQUICKJIB2 is an investment, but it’s an investment in time and top quality results.
