One of the top questions I get asked at the moment is what drone is the best to buy? and where should you buy it? To be honest the answer is easy, because there is only one brand that has been around since day one, continually developing new products, and lifting the bar every few months – DJI! In some ways it’s bad, trying to keep up with the latest and greatest, but in… Read more »
If you’ve been following my work for awhile, you’ll know how obsessed I am with 360º photos/video and virtual reality. Insta360 has been on my radar since the release of the nano, and then surged to the top of my favourite tech companies when they release the Insta360 PRO – an 8K-vr rig aimed at the pro-market. Had this beast been around when I did this project for Service IQ, I 100% would’ve opted… Read more »
If like me you currently have the DJI Phantom 3 Pro and you didn’t upgrade to the Phantom 4 because the only real difference was a new battery & avoidance sensors, you might now be wanting to know is the Phantom 4 Pro worth the upgrade? Asides from the reasons above, the other key features of the Phantom 4 Pro are: New 20mp 1″ sensor 4K 60P recording New bitrate of 100mbps in H264 and H265… Read more »
After months of speculation, the Canon 5D IV is finally here! Price of USD$3,499. The biggest features for me are auto-focusing, touch screen and 4K-video! Can’t wait to get my hands on one of these, and keep my Canon 5D III as a trusty back-up camera!
I was recently in the UK, and took my daughter Scarlett to Paris for the day! While there, she climbed all 669 steps by herself (watch the video) to the top of the Eiffel Tower, where I took this photo!

I’ve had a few emails lately asking what program I use to make my videos I post on my YouTube channel. For any commercial projects on there, I obviously use my Canon 5dmk3 + Final Cut Pro X. However, when it comes to my own personal videos, behind the scene videos, where I just want to tell a story, having a smartphone in your pocket makes life so much easier. I spent a… Read more »
For the past 3 months I have been reviewing & playing with the Nokia 1020 for Nokia NZ & Telecom. Being a lover of all things Mac, it was always going to be a hard ask to impress me. The Nokia 1020 certainly did that, and some. While the phone comes into a smartphone category, I think it would be better suited as a smartcamera! The 41MP camera surely is something. Having full control of… Read more »
Nokia has just let me know that I’ll have a new Nokia 1020 in my hands today to borrow for the month. Mega excited to see what this 41mp smartphone can do! Nokia has certainly put the smarts into this smartphone, but what a little company from Sweden has done is put some smarts into a camera. The Q Camera is taking the world by storm, and for great reason! This little camera… Read more »

I’ve been getting into more and more interior architecture photography, and night time sky photography – both require a very wide lens. With my other lenses not quite fitting the space, I’ve been keeping an eye out for something very wide for some time. But I didn’t want a fish-eye lens. When I first… Read more »
