Manfrotto, a company with long experience in the photography accessory industry, has announced the latest addition to its product portfolio — the Pro Light Bumblebee camera bag line. This new bag line, as Manfrotto explains it, is designed to service the needs of photographers and videographers who need to carry their gear outdoors in less than ideal conditions, including extreme heat, cold, and humidity.

Headlining the features that set the Bumblebee family of bags apart from the competition is the introduction of Manfrotto’s unique breathable harness system, which the company says will reduce fatigue associated with carrying heavy photography gear over long distances. As well, the bags have been designed to take stress and heat off the wearer’s shoulders, neck, and back, adding to the comfort of the wearer over time.

Additionally, thanks to its unique design, access to the main camera compartment is controlled by four zippers, which can be split with stoppers which allow the owner to divide the compartment into an upper and a lower chamber which can be easily accessed without having to open the entire bag.

The messenger bag variants of the Bumblebee lineup come with a Velcro silencer, which is designed to make accessing the bags quieter when shooting in situations where noise is an issue — such as when photographing a wedding, documenting a theater performance, or observing wildlife.

In all, there are four bags in the Pro Light Bumblebee family released by Manfrotto, two backpack variants, and two messenger bag variants. The bags will range from $130 and $150 for the messenger bags, while the backpacks will ring up at $230 and $280. The bags are now available at retailers across the country as well as online.

DJI Mini Pro 4 leak appears to reveal the drone’s specs
A retail box apparently showing DJI's upcoming Mini Pro 4 drone.

DJI appears close to unveiling the Mini 4 Pro, the successor to the Mini 3 Pro that launched in May last year.

First, as a reminder, DJI’s smallest and lightest “Pro” drone tips the scales at just 249 grams, a carefully considered move as it’s just 1 gram below the drone weight category that involves having to register it with the authorities. Sure, that’s no great hardship for most folks, but the fewer hoops you have to jump through to get your bird in the sky, the better.

GoPro: Introducing HERO12 Black | Everything You Need to Know

GoPro is back with the latest iteration of its popular action camera. The new GoPro Hero 12 Black is the kind of solid piece of kit we’ve come to expect from a company that’s been in the game for years. That’s actually created a bit of a problem for GoPro, with many customers happy to hang onto their current model rather than upgrade. So it'll be hoping the latest version will be attractive enough to prompt a wave of purchases among current owners, while at the same time attracting a bunch of first-time buyers, too.

How to hide photos on your Android phone or tablet
Google Photos

While modern smartphones are quite secure as long as they remain locked with a passcode or biometrics like a fingerprint, by default those features only protect the front door. If someone picks up your phone while it's unlocked, there aren't typically any barriers that will keep them out of exploring everything from your contacts and emails to your photos.

This can be particularly challenging when it comes to photos, since those are the things we like to show off the most from our phones. We've likely all had those moments when we want to show a friend or co-worker a funny cat meme, so we hand over our phone and trust that they won't swipe right and see the photo of the hairy mole that we sent to our doctor that morning.
