  • DJI Osmo Mobile 3: an inexpensive and compact stabilizer for your smartphone


    DJI company continues to improve the line of Steadicams for smartphones, making them more compact and versatile. Another product of the brand is the OSMO Mobile 3 model with improved ergonomics, new design and lower price compared to its predecessor.

    DJI Osmo Mobile 3

    The design of Osmo Mobile 3 provides the ability to fold the gadget so that it occupies a minimum of space in a travel bag or backpack. The model has a function of switching the portrait mode in the manual Quick Roll, using which you no longer need to remove the smartphone from the clamp lock.

    The autonomy of the Steadicam remained unchanged — all the same, 15 hours from one charge cycle, as in Osmo 2. But from the "childhood diseases" predecessor novelty got rid of: the new design of the stabilizer allows you to easily connect the charging, audio cables and external microphones in any position of the handle.

    The functionality of Osmo Mobile 3 almost completely duplicates the capabilities of the previous model. It has several shooting modes: "History", "Sport", TimeLapse, Slow Motion, the possibility of approaching and locking the position of the smartphone, and there is a button to switch to selfie mode. The developers have not forgotten about one of the most popular features of ActiveTrack, which allows you to track the subject and keep it in the center of the frame.

    The cost of DJI Osmo Mobile 3 is $119, which is $10 lower than the price tag for the model Osmo 2. For $139 the manufacturer offers a kit consisting of a tripod Osmo Grip Tripod, carrying case and the Steadicam.

      Two and a half years after the release of the Mavic Air drone, DJI introduced a new proprietary drone model that received a number of technological improvements. The compact aircraft with an advanced camera module is equipped with a scene recognition function for photographs, prepared for night landings, and is not afraid of various air obstacles.
      DJI Mavic Air 2 has a 48-megapixel camera with an f/2.8 aperture and support for Quad Bayer technology. By default, the sensor takes 12-megapixel photos, similar to smartphones with the same module, but it is also able to shoot in full resolution. In addition, the new product can record 4K @ 60 fps video. The HDR function is available for both video (up to 4K @ 30 fps) and panoramic photos. The camera also supports 8K shooting, but this mode will only be available with the corresponding software update at the end of June 2020.

      Thanks to the support of AirSense technology, the drone detects and warns the operator about other aircraft nearby, and the ActiveTrack 3.0 function and obstacle sensors allow the drone to avoid collisions in the air. The auxiliary security system and built-in lighting elements are designed for landing at night.
      The autonomy of the new product is up to 34 minutes of flight, and the connection with the remote control is responsible for OccuSync 2.0 technology (2.4/5.8 GHz) in conjunction with the proprietary controller. The maximum horizontal speed of the device weighing 570 grams reaches 68.4 km/h.

      Specializing in the production of drones company DJI announced a special kit for fans of racing drones. The system includes VR glasses, remote control, transmitter, and camera. The latter will allow you to broadcast a high-quality image without interference at an impressive distance.
      The signal delay during the broadcast is only 28 milliseconds, which allows you to comfortably control the drone. The range of the Digital FPV System is 4 kilometers. The choice of the user there is two modes of broadcasting in 720p resolution: with a frequency of 120 or 60 frames per second.
      Unlike standard analog solutions, such a high frame rate will allow riders to notice power lines or tree branches — objects that are indistinguishable in other similar systems.
      The broadcast can be downloaded as a MicroSD-card installed on the drone camera with a resolution of 1080p and 60 fps or 720p and 120 fps, and glasses — only 720p and 60 fps. DJI novelty is represented by two options: a basic set of FPV Experience, which includes two air modules, two cameras and glasses, and advanced Fly More, which includes a controller, glasses, one transmitter, and one camera. The cost of the kits is $819 and $929 respectively.

    • OPPO Reno 3 review: Quad camera and lots of memory

      Last year's OPPO Reno 2 smartphone was remembered for its almost flagship characteristics. In the new generation, the emphasis has shifted - the role of the top-end device has been assigned to the Reno 3 Pro, and the standard “three” has become a mid-budget phone. However, Reno 3 received a powerful quad camera, high-quality screen, and a large amount of memory. We find out how good the new product is.

      Four rear modules and a 44-megapixel front-facing camera
      The main camera of Reno 3 received four modules, as in the top-end device of the series - Reno 3 Pro. However, there are some functions missing, such as interpolation up to 108 MP. All the blocks are arranged in a line on an islet that protrudes noticeably upwards if you wear the gadget without a cover.
      The main module has a 1/2-inch sensor with a resolution of 48 MP and a lens with an aperture of f/1.8. As usual, in standard mode, it produces 12-megapixel images, and if desired, you can take photos in full resolution - 48 MP. Telephoto is based on a 13-megapixel sensor and a lens with an f/2.4 aperture. The ultra-wide Angle is equipped with an 8-megapixel sensor and a lens with an f/2.2 aperture. Finally, the 2 MP sensor is designed to assess the depth of the scene.

      Telephoto, in addition to 2x optical zoom, provides a 5x hybrid zoom. The photo app allows you to quickly switch between four shooting modes: ultra-wide angle, 1x, 2x, and 5x.
      All modules can function together with HDR. This option works perfectly in Auto mode, improving both the light and dark tones of contrasting scenes. Artificial intelligence confidently recognizes the scenes being shot and selects settings.
      However, in non-standard lighting conditions, if you choose wide-angle optics, the color rendering will not always be accurate. This does not happen with the main module and the telephoto lens.

      The main module paired with the auxiliary module gives clear portraits and realistic blurs the background
      Reno 3 shoots well in mixed and artificial lighting, as well as in the absence of light in the dark. In the most problematic cases, the Night program helps out. It combines several shots and works out all the tones of contrasting scenes. For shooting with manual settings, an Expert preset is provided.
      Multi-megapixel selfies
      The front camera is built into the display and is located in the middle of its upper edge, in the "drop". The camera is equipped with a 44-megapixel sensor and a wide-angle f/2.4 aperture lens. The default settings are set to a 40-megapixel resolution of images. And the full one is selected by pressing a separate on-screen button. The image quality in both cases is approximately the same. Sharpness appears only from a distance of about 30 cm, that is, for example, it is impossible to obtain a macro photograph of your eye. It seems that the calculation was made for shooting with outstretched hands or a selfie stick. For self-portraits, there are traditionally many beauty options: smoothing the skin, correcting the shape of the face and nose, eye size, and so on.

      Selfies in 44MP mode
      The smartphone records 4K videos at 30 fps. The supported format is Full HD with 30 and 60 fps, as well as slow-motion clips in HD and Full HD. During movie shooting, you can freely switch the zoom.
      In 4K mode at 30 frames per second, the gadget produces a picture with the correct color reproduction and high definition. But when working with hands, stabilization is noticeably lacking.
      Shooting in Full HD at 60 fps uses Ultra Steady Video 2.0 stabilization, which makes the picture smoother.
      Work and entertainment without lags
      Reno 3 is built on an eight-core MediaTek Helio P90 chipset. The new product in AnTuTu gives out figures comparable to the results of Kirin 970 and Snapdragon 712, and slightly ahead of Snapdragon 710. And in the Geekbench 5 rating - is on par with Snapdragon 845. This speed is sufficient to avoid slowdowns in any applications.
      8 GB of RAM allows you to run multiple programs simultaneously. The built-in fingerprint sensor acts quickly and accurately. There are no performance problems in games. In the popular WoT: Blitz with default graphics settings, the frame rate is confidently kept at 60 fps.

      The device has only one main speaker, which produces clear sound without distortion up to about 90% of the volume. Plus, there is support for Dolby Atmos. In this software add-on, you can add surround sound and a bit of bass - a great option for multimedia applications.
      Unfortunately, you will not be able to create a full stereo pair, because the speaker is quieter than the main one. But in Reno3 Pro two speakers shake as if you are holding a good Bluetooth speaker in your hands. Complete in-ear headphones deliver high-quality sound. Thanks to the audio jack, you can connect your favorite accessory.

      The built-in storage is not too large: 128 GB. But it is easy to increase it by using a microSD memory card. It is placed in a triple slot next to two nano-SIM cards. We had a 512 GB test card at hand - it worked without problems.
      High autonomy
      The gadget is powered by a 4025 mAh battery and supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology. A 20 W adapter and a complete cable during the test provided recharging at high speed. For example, from 33 to 78%, the battery was charged in 13 minutes, and up to 100% in 27.
      An hour-long shootout in WoT: Blitz (display brightness - 50%) consumes 11 percent of the battery. That is, without going to the outlet, it is about 9 hours of offline gaming. In Flight-mode, with the same brightness, about 4.4% of the battery charge is spent per hour playing the video in Full HD. Therefore, you should expect 22 hours of offline video viewing. Excellent results!

      If long-term autonomy is not so important, you can disable power consumption optimization in the settings and select "High performance". In this case, the device will work a little faster, and the battery consumption will be stronger.
      Great screen
      Reno 3 is equipped with an AMOLED panel with a diagonal of 6.4 inches, a resolution of FHD+ (2400x1080 pixels), and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The display occupies 90.8% of the front panel area, has a teardrop-shaped cutout for the front and thin frames. The image is clear, with rich but natural colors. The viewing angles are large, and the brightness reserve is sufficient for using the phone on the street in any weather. With minimal screen light, it is comfortable to read in a dark room. And at night, you can switch to "Dark mode" - in fact, this is an inverse version of the design: with a black display and a white font. Many people will find it even more convenient, and it also saves battery life.
      Branded shell of the seventh version
      Reno 3 is running a proprietary ColorOS 7 shell based on Android 10. When comparing with the previous version, you can see that the font has not changed, but many icons have been redrawn. However, their shape and size can be easily changed at your own discretion. The screen can be converted to a split format - just make a three-finger swipe up.

      The OPPO Reno 3 is an interesting device with balanced characteristics. From the first minutes, the beautiful design, slim body, and high-quality 6.4-inch screen make you happy. Later on - high performance, fast recharging, and good battery life. The advantages include the photo-filling, including a 44-megapixel front camera. In addition, the built-in drive can be expanded with a memory card, but not to the detriment of the second SIM card - a trifle, but nice.
