For the past 2 months I've had the pleaseure of flying my very own DJI Phantom 4 Pro. I'd been missing something from my kit for a couple of years, and have now come to realise it was most definitely a drone. I can't thank the guys over at Macarthur Camera House...

Feisol CT-3442 – Review

Since upgrading from my first tripod to the incredibly sturdy and robust Feisol CT-3372 (see review here), I've often found that it can be a little overkill at times. Don't get me wrong, if I could only have ONE tripod, it would be that beast, but often times I find...
