The DJI Phantom 4's Active Track and Obstacle Avoidance features were heavily hyped during the product launch, but the question remains - just how reliable are the new features? Early purchasers are now finding out.
 
Here's a small bit of advice if you have a new DJI Phantom 4 headed your way - try not to be overconfident in the Phantom 4's new technology. Always be aware of your drone's surroundings and understand the limits of its capabilities. [Sean]
 
From the LIXI Studios Vimeo Channel:
 
We just got the new DJI Phantom 4 here at Lixi Studios, and decided to try the new Active Track feature in the most ironic way: by trying to track the DJI Phantom 3!
 
We also do a review of the new features, show off test footage, compare it with the DJI Phantom 3, and participate in our usual hijinks along the way.

Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free.
 
Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the Nik Collection to get the best out of their images every day. As we continue to focus our long-term investments in building incredible photo editing tools for mobile, including Google Photos and Snapseed, we’ve decided to make the Nik Collection desktop suite available for free, so that now anyone can use it.
 
The Nik Collection is comprised of seven desktop plug-ins that provide a powerful range of photo editing capabilities -- from filter applications that improve color correction, to retouching and creative effects, to image sharpening that brings out all the hidden details, to the ability to make adjustments to the color and tonality of images.
 
Starting March 24, 2016, the latest Nik Collection will be freely available to download: Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine. If you purchased the Nik Collection in 2016, you will receive a full refund, which we’ll automatically issue back to you in the coming days.
 
We’re excited to bring the powerful photo editing tools once only used by professionals to even more people now.

From the DJI YouTube Channel:
 
ABC's Dancing with the Stars is a show built on dynamic motion and physicality. It's no surprise that they had DJI assist on some of the most complex and intricate shots of the season. With the help of the DJI Ronin, they were able to pull it off night after night.
 
B&H carries the DJI Ronin and Ronin-M gimbal stabilizers.

Image quality have been added to the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens Review.
 
We should expect this lens to deliver iamge quality similar to the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens. Here is the comparison: Canon EF-S 18-135mm IS USM vs IS STM Lens.
 
The 18-135 IS USM is a really nice lens to use - a pleasure to walk around with.
 
B&H has the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens in stock. This lens is also available in the Canon EOS 80D kit, but unusual is that there is no savings over buying the lens and 80D separately.

Completing this review (including the standard product images) is a high priority for me, but ... I admit being distracted by the arrival of the Canon EOS 80D and the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens. Sorry, I might have to finish these two reviews first. :)
