BenQ Professional Designer Monitor PD3220U

We were invited to the media launch of BenQ’s latest 4K HDR range  products – which includes the Professional Designer Monitor PD3220U on 12 March. Other newly released products included the Gaming Curve Monitor and 4K HDR P3 Display Projector.

But what we were more interested in was the PD3220U! This was an addition to the current PD series with monitors  “designed for designers”. The PD series targets graphic/animation designers where every detail has to be of pristine condition! BenQ has been actively working with more than 100+  international photographers in getting to know their workflow, pain points and unmet demands, offering them color management solutions via the monitors they introduce and upgrade over time. No doubt, their monitors have received many praises from all over the world!

One thing that BenQ places a huge importance on is color. The color experts  in BenQ have introduced a new technology – AQCOLOR where it ensures accurate colors for professionals – wide color gamut, meeting industrial standards and increasing workflow efficiency for photographers alike. Now you can edit/design in ease without worrying about the colour alteration your monitor may cause! Another special feature that places BenQ above the rest is their concern for consumers’ eye care, their monitors contains flicker-free technology and low blue-light which protects the eyes of BenQ monitor users  from further damage due to prolong usage of the screen!

There are currently 2 monitors in the PD Series – PD3200Q and PD2720U.



New Designer Monitor – PD3220U

More information can be found on https://www.benq.com/en-sg/monitor.html

In trying to meet the different demands of consumers, BenQ proactively provides solutions in display and color technology. As for the PD3220U, they saw an increase in the number of Apple Mac users who assumes that the Mac provides the best quality in terms of on-screen resolution. Now, with the PD3220U you can connect your Mac and obtain the same quality as the Macbook has in itself on your PD3220U screen.

Additionally, Sony have also  introduced an all new Real-Time Eye AF with AI-based subject recognition. This is said to provide photographers with even more accuracy in comparison to the current Eye AF system.

The A6400 also comes with an all-new selfie flip up touchscreen that features a 3.0-type LCD with 921k-dots of resolution – a feature many vloggers and youtubers would love. Also, the A6400 also includes a hot shoe mount, a microphone jack, and 4K video recording at 24 or 30 fps.


The A6400 will be sold as a Body, a starter kit that includes body and a 16-50mm F2.5-F5.6 lens or a more advanced kit lens bundled with the 18-135mm F2.5-5.6 lens.

[What’s New] ZhiYun Crane Plus

We are all familiar with ZhiYun gimbals such like the Crane being a reliable and sturdy gimbal.

Now, with the Crane Plus, you get an improvised version of the crane with additional !


  • Using the new MotionMemory feature with Crane Plus allows you to setup advanced camera movements and save them so Crane Plus will remember them for the future. It will even remember all of your timelapse settings like the interval, number of shots, duration, and more! Now, with a simple click of a button you can repeat the same moving shots over and over again. It’s like having your very own camera assistant everywhere you go!
  • The new Crane Plus adds a newly designed POV (Point of View) mode that allows for additional camera movement by providing up to 45 degrees of synchronous motion on the roll axis, What this means is that rather than Crane Plus keeping the camera level when you roll left or right, POV mode will move with you and roll your camera left or right, up to 45 degrees. Even simpler, when you move, your camera moves with you. The addition of POV mode, along with the 3 other modes on Crane Plus give you the level of control and freedom you need to capture almost any shot possible.
  • Crane Plus supports object-tracking via phone app control (specific operation methods seen in the official tutorial:). Draw a box around the object you want to track on the phone screen, then your Crane Plus can easily track the moving object and shoot excellent scenes free hands.
  • Crane Plus is pushing the limits even further than before! Using our cutting-edge, 6th generation Instune Algorithm System to power the motors, Crane Plus can handle a massive weight capacity of up to 2.5kg (5.51lbs). Whether you’re using mirrorless cameras with kit lenses or your using professional grade DSLRs with heavier lenses, Crane Plus can now handle a significantly wider range of camera and lens combinations
  • In the past, gorgeous timelapse photography is only limited to daytime shooting. Now with Crane Plus arrives the NightLapse feature: A powerful new tool for creating gorgeous, long-exposure timelapses that add in a new dimension of motion and depth. Using Crane Plus with NightLapse, you can capture stunning star trails, moving nighttime traffic, capture the passage of time over beautiful nighttime landscapes, and all with the stunning motion and stability that only Crane Plus can provide
  • Crane Plus comes with a camera control cable that can realize synchronous operation on both your camera and stabilizer like taking a photo or zooming.
