Review time!  Jim and Fred review the DJI Phantom quadrocopter which can be used to carry a GoPro or other small camera in flight.  Quick to assemble and easy to fly.  The Gura Gear Sabi Sack bean bag bundle was designed by our friend Chris Klapheke at Outdoor Photo Gear www.outdoorphotogear.com/ . These bags are very tough and flexible, but just why would a photographer want a bean bag?  Well, tune in to this podcast to see what we think and learn just how to use a bean bag!
