Drones are becoming more and more common for photographers and Fred just recently picked up a bargain which we will review in the current episode!
In recent news Kodak is bringing back Alaris Pro Image 100 film - in Europe. No word on when or if it will be available in the States. Also, the Kodak-branded "Kashminer" which mined for bitcoins has collapsed and Kodak is distancing itself from the failed company. Nikon has discontinued its Nikon 1 line of mirrorless cameras. Hamm Camera Company has created a Kickstarter project to create a DIY pinhole camera - you can be a backer for only $20. A reliable source claims Adobe will be coming out with a version of Photoshop for the iPad.

The Fotobug guys have a long history of working with drones - now Fred has one of his own! Yuneec recently had a number of sales of refurbished drones for amazing prices. One such drone was the Q500 4K drone which Fred managed to nab! This drone features a 4K removable camera and many features which makes it a perfect drone for beginners and intermediate users alike. More advanced users may wish to look into the Typhoon or some of DJI drones. but if you are just starting out, check the refurbished page on both DJI and Yuneec.
