    INTRODUCING THE NEW DJI AIR DRONE FOR OUR WEDDINGS & EVENTS IN 2019

    Please contact Paul on 07495751061 for further information with regards to bookings for aerial drone videography & photography.

    FEATURES:

    3-Axis Gimbal Camera
    The Mavic Air is the most portable DJI drone to house a 3-axis mechanical gimbal, with its angular vibration range reduced to 0.005°. Set in a triangular formation, gimbal dampeners help create even steadier shots.

    32 MP Sphere Panoramas
    In addition to Horizontal, Vertical, and 180° panoramas, the Mavic Air stitches 25 photos together in just eight seconds to create crystal-clear 32 MP Sphere panoramas.1 View them from an immersive perspective with DJI Goggles.

    4K 100 Mbps Video
    The Mavic Air shoots video at an incredible 4K 30 fps, recording at 100 Mbps to capture every second with UHD quality.

    Slow-Motion Video
    With support for recording 1080p 120 fps slow-motion video, the Mavic Air captures all your epic high-speed adventures.

    HDR Photos
    New HDR algorithms help you obtain the right exposure settings intelligently, according to lighting conditions. Overexposed or dark areas are processed for more natural transitions between highlights and shadows, while DSP acceleration allows for more efficient shooting.

    12 MP Stills
    The Mavic Air’s onboard camera integrates a 1/2.3” 12-megapixel CMOS sensor and an f/2.8 lens with a 35-mm equivalent focal length of 24 mm to shoot high-quality photos and videos.

    About this Lens :
    With a large maximum aperture of f/1.2, this 50mm prime gives outstanding speed when shooting in low light. The lens also provides fine control over focusing, allowing an extremely shallow depth of field for creative effects.

  13. Morning Dean,
    First of all good call on looking to get a 5D II, great camera, had two 5D bodies for years they never let me down.

    Now depending on budget.
    My first go to lens is the 24-70 f/2.8 L II, purchase this lens and you won’t look back. Ok it’s not cheap, but this one lens will cover a complete wedding, great in small places, low light conditions with a fast focus & perfect zoom.
    If that’s a little out of your price range then go for the new 24-105 f/4.0 L IS II, again this is also a great all round go to lens, also try the MK I version’s if on a very strict budget.

    Hope this helps!
    Paul

  14. Hi Paul,
    Wonder if you could give me some advice. I’m only 17 and looking to get a canon 5d2 to start shooting weddings and events with, just want to pick your brain’s on the best all round lens to cover these events with.
    Much appreciated.

    Following on from their announcement earlier this month“YELLOW PAGES” the local directory will cease it’s publications in January 2019 having taken the decision to fully digitise it’s business online. Due to this news…as from January 2019, our business will no longer be advertising with the company after a successful 12-year run.

    We understand potential clients still use/need the yellow pages to book out our services, especially those who don’t have any online connection for a PC, PAD or mobile service, (still around 6 million in this country) it’s for those people we feel sorry for.
