DJI MINI 3 PRO – From $1,119
DJI has unveiled its new Mini 3 Pro drone which manages to squeeze in the latest features, extended flying time and camera quality in a unit that weighs less than 249g.
The ultra-light foldable drone is small enough to fit in your hand when its folded down and designed for users to take it anywhere with you – including on your travels.
And that’s why the 249g weight is so important because it means (according to CASA – the Civil Aviation and Safety Authority) you can fly within 5.5km of a controlled airport.
And weighing less than 250g means the DJI Mini 3 Pro drone doesn’t have to be registered.
BELKIN iPHONE MOUNT WITH MAGSAFE FOR MAC LAPTOPS – $44.95
The mounts use MagSafe to connect to the iPhone and are elegantly secured to the Mac. The Belkin iPhone Mount with MagSafe works great with Continuity Camera — a new feature in macOS Ventura that enables Mac customers to use their iPhone as a webcam.
