Sharon and I enjoy similar interests in camping, hiking, photography, astronomy and reading.
We have a Meade 8" LX90 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope with a Autostar Hand Controller for our star-gazing activities.
We have a Nikon P510 and a Nikon S3500 to shoot photography.
We have a Samsung HMX F-90 HD Camcorder to shoot video.
We have the Kindle Paperwhite and the Kindle Fire HD. Between these two Amazon.com devices we have a substantial library of books, magazine subscriptions, games and video content we can enjoy during our travels.
In March 2016, we purchased the Phantom 3 Professional Drone. During our travels, we encounter many scenic vistas. We often thought how nice it would be if we could capture some aerial video of these magnificent areas. Now we have that capability.
The Phantom 3 Professional carries a fully stabilized 3-axis 4k UHD video camera for smooth, crisp videos and still photos. To allow you to see what the drone sees, DJI has engineered a new generation of their Lightbridge technology that allows 720p HD digital streaming of live video directly from the drone. You can control the camera and see video in real time as you fly and you can even share the video using the DJI Pilot app's advanced features. To aid indoor flying, the Phantom 3 Professional includes an integrated array of optical and ultrasonic sensors call Vision Positioning that allows you to fly precisely indoors without a GPS signal. The Phantom 3 Professional includes all the tried-and-true features you'd expect from a DJI drone, including GPS navigation with auto takeoffs and auto landings, intelligent high power flight battery, a built-in safety database of no fly zones, and a powerful mobile app for your iOS or Android device.
