Game-changing for the win (22 Oct, 2021)

China has become the major manufacturer of almost all things electronic... except perhaps, decent video cameras.

Well that was until this week, when DJI released their Ronin 4D cine-camera, something that has been described as a real game-changer.

It will be very interesting to see whether this new product will cement China's position as a leading manufacturer in yet another market.

Another challenge will be whether they can actually make enough of these things to meet the demand, given that other camera makers seem to be struggling to meet demand and perhaps even launching new models to try and dodge the silicon shortage.

We do indeed live in interesting times.

Even though I know the history of Japanese manufacturing, it is still really jarring for me to hear the older generation talk shit about Japanese products. My whole life, I have watched Japanese brands consistently deliver superior results to western brands.
The kids being born now will probably feel the same way about Chinese products.

Yes, and even before Japan was deemed to be a maker of cheap tat... Hong Kong was the place where such stuff came. It's interesting that Hong Kong doesn't actually seem to make much stuff any more, perhaps even moreso after the Chinese takeover.
