Gear Necessities: instant Leicas and powerful drones

Keeping up with all the latest in technology and trends, Lacklands informed us of two very exciting products that are now available for you to add to your kit — just in time for Christmas presents, we might add.

First of all, Leica has created their first instant camera, so you can now snap and print special moments immediately — no more loading up your USB and wandering down to your local print shop a few weeks later!

Secondly, Lacklands told us all about the DJI Mavic Pro — a small yet powerful drone that comes packed to the brim with features to allow you to capture striking shots from sky-high.

Leica’s first instant-camera offering

If you love having the ability to snap a photo and immediately give it to those who feature in the shots, then Leica’s first-ever instant camera, the Leica Sofort, may be just what you need. The versatile instant-picture camera features a unique Leica design, and includes an array of special features, while offering quick and easy access to photography through the unique experience of spontaneous photos that can be seen and shared in seconds. The Leica Sofort is compact and easy to handle, and is all about encouraging your creativity while rediscovering instant photography to create art and long-lasting memories.

If you’re keen to learn more about the Leica Sofort, which has an RRP of $449.95, contact Progear or Photo Warehouse.

DJI Mavic Pro — small but mighty

The DJI Mavic Pro may be small, but it’s a drone that is capable of easily turning the sky into your creative canvas! Its compact size hides a high degree of complexity that makes it one of DJI’s most sophisticated flying cameras. It features 24 high-performance computing cores, an all-new transmission system with a 7km range, 27-minute flight time, four vision sensors, and a 4K camera stabilized by a three-axis mechanical gimbal — all at your command with just a push of your thumb or a tap of your finger.

If you’re interested in taking the leap and purchasing a DJI Mavic Pro, which has an RRP of $1899, you can pick up your kit at Noel Leeming, Rubber Monkey, Photo Warehouse, Photo and Video International, and Auckland Camera Centre.
