Flash storage and accessories company PNY has introduced the MOBEE gimbal 3-axis stabilizer for smartphones, as well as its new Elite Portable SSD and PRO Elite SSD.
Despite PNY’s claimes, they’re not the fastest portable SSDs on the market, but the new PNY models make up for their slightly slower speeds by offering very compact sizes. The Elite Portable SSD model measures 6 x 3.6 x 0.9cm (2.3 x 1.4 x 0.3in) and the PRO Elite is slightly larger at 13.3 x 10.2 x 5.7cm (5.2 x 4 x 2.2in).
The PNY Elite model is offered in 240GB and 480GB capacities with up to 430MB/s read and 400MB/s write speeds. The PRO Elite model is offered in 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB capacities with up to 890MB/s write and 900MB/s read speeds. The Elite Portable SSD 450GB costs $125 USD; the PRO Elite model ranges from $70 USD to $162 USD.
The new PNY MOBEE gimbal, meanwhile, is compact at 10.8 x 28.9 x 7cm (4.2 x 11.3 x 2.7in) with a weight of 1.4kg (3lbs). The 3-axis stabilizer features a rechargeable Li-ion battery offering up to 12 hours of operation per charge, as well as a USB port for charging a smartphone while shooting.
A companion mobile app offers access to different shooting modes, including object and face tracking, slow motion and time-lapse. The gimbal is only listed on Amazon.uk at this time with a price of £87.13 ($107.14 USD).
The Mikme Pocket is a portable wireless mic with particular appeal to smartphone users looking to up their game and improve the quality of recorded audio without the cost or complexity or traditional equipment.
The EOS M6 Mark II renews Canon’s commitment to making small, enthusiast-friendly APS-C mirrorless cameras. With 4K video, 30 fps Raw bursts and additional controls, it’s a big step forward from its predecessor. And perhaps more interesting than the EOS 90D.
The 90D is essentially the DSLR version of the EOS M6 Mark II mirrorless camera that was introduced alongside it. Like the M6 II, it features a 32MP sensor, Dual Pixel AF, fast burst shooting and 4K/30p video capture. It will be available mid-September.
The S1H is a full frame mirrorless camera designed with videographers in mind and includes advanced features like 6K video capture, 4:2:2 10-bit internal recording, improved video scopes, high frame rate recording, Panasonic Varicam color science and more.
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 VII is the most capable pocket camera currently on the market thanks to a combo of good image quality, smooth stabilized 4K and an industry-leading autofocus implementation. For these reasons it receives our gold award.
