The road is known also for being part of the cycling Giro di Lombardia and this year’s Giro d’Italia 2019. Proceeding along past the Madonna del Ghisallo, the road descends into a beautiful valley that meanders it’s way to Erba (Como) or, with a sharp right turn, climbs up towards the town of Sormano.

Descending back down towards Como, the road is quite steep and winding, with great views over the lake and coming back down before reaching Como, the characteristic town  of Torno is worth a visit as it merges into the lake giving you a great point of view.

If you are a beginner photographer, an amateur photographer thinking about which camera to buy in 2019 for Wildlife photography or for Sports photography, in the Canon range you can find cameras that have been out on the market for a few years now in 2019, but that they’re still good for Wildlife and Sports photography and, at a more affordable price.

These cameras can also be found used in the second hand market and a good selection of lenses are available from Canon and from other manufacturers such as: Tamron, Sigma, Tokina and more.

Selle Italia Slr Superflow Bike Saddle Test @fabulousport

After experiencing a lot of pain using a bike saddle that wasn’t good for me, the Selle Italia Monolink, I’ve decided to test another model but still giving a chance to Selle Italia as a brand. This new one to test is the Selle Italia SLR Superflow and it’s shaped with a major cut-out to allow ventilation as you ride. From Selle Italia’ website: “SLR Superflow L. The optimal sitting position on the toughest saddle
The sophistication and strength of the SLR range are combined with the benefits of SuperFlow technology to maximise your riding experience with an optimal saddle position.”
I haven’t used it for too long, but I can already say that it’s a much better design and comfortable saddle to ride, particarly at the moment, been summer and at 30*C the ventilation really helps.

A first look at the Dji Mavic Air compact drone #FabulousOutdoors

We have been using and testing a few Dji products in the past, and we’ve always been more than happy about the quality, durability and performances of their products.
The Mavic Pro has been a fantastic travel companion, very portable and reliable, and able to produce fantastic footage, such as in this video here below.

//show.dji.com/videos/Mzc1MTIwODE0NjoxVy1hY0tyWA==/embed

Now, Dji has come out with a new update version of the Mavic, actually, with a complete new one, it’s called the MAVIC AIR  

Dji Mavic Air Drone White

That doesn’t mean that the MAVIC PRO isn’t good anymore, it’s still a great product and the price is still very competitive.

You can even get the MAVIC PRO ALPINE WHITE COMBO and it’s an awesome bundle deal at the moment.

The Mavic Pro has been out for a while now, so people have been able to use it and test it to it’s full potential, however those few who have complained about their user experience, were often making mistakes in the way they were operating it.

Dji Mavic Pro

If you are a MAVIC PRO owner, or if you’re thinking of becoming one, here are a few tips to avoid the 10 COMMON MISTAKES MAVIC PRO PILOTS MAKE

Anyway, with the release of the new MAVIC AIR, Dji realised the most portable Dji Drone to house a 3-axis mechanical gimbal with it’s angular vibration range reduced to 0.005 degrees. Set in a triangular formation, gimbal dampeners help create even steadier shots.

The Mavic Air’s onboard camera integrates a 1/2.3″ 12-megapixel sensor and and f/2.8 lens with a35mm equivqlent focal lengthof 24mm to shoot high quality photos and videos.

Plus, in addition to Horizontal, Vertical and 180degrees panoramas, the MAVIC AIR stitches 25 photos together in just eight seconds to create crystal clear 32-MP “sphere panoramas”.

4K 100 MBps to capture every second with UHD quality.

SLOW MOTION VIDEO: with support for recording 1080p @ 120fps slow motion video, the MAVIC AIR captures all you epic high-speed adventures.

HDR PHOTOS: New HDR algorithms help you obtain the right exposure settings intelligently, according to lighting conditions. Overexposed and dark areas are processed for more natural transitions between highlights and shadows.

8GB INTERNAL STORAGE: In addition to a Micro SD card slot, 8 GB of internal storage let you save photos and videos directly to the aircraft and export files through it’s USB 3.0 Type-C port.

The geometric elegance, with the arms folding flush against it’s aerodynamic chassis, the 7 onboard cameras for obstacles avoidance, a fantastic foldable design, with a foldable remote control, make this Mavic Air becoming your best travel photography companion.

We’ll be posting an outdoor test and operational review of it, so.. STAY TUNED!
