Thoughts on using the Wacom Cintiq 16

I have to start this review by saying that I am quite biased. I know it might sound weird, however, I have to say it in order to set the expectations for what you are about to read. Also, the reason for my partiality is due to the fact that I've always wanted to have a Wacom Cintiq but it always felt like a distant dream for a couple of reasons. First, living in Brazil made things more complicated in terms of price and second, I never consider myself an illustrator.

Lightroom CC v VSCO: a photo editing app comparison

My first article of the year, I am pretty excited about this one. Ever since launching the Osore Lightroom Presets. I have yet but learned a lot about the real side of product design. Even though having experience in building many products and brand experiences, there are many components of building YOUR OWN product that you are actually learning as you go or you have never experienced before. For me, it has been building my target audience and it's still progressing. But I am loving it though!

In Review: The Mighty Hasselblad X1D

Before I start anything I just want to get things straight, I am not a professional photographer, although I studied photography and have developed quite a few photographs in a darkroom. By all means, I would describe myself as an enthusiast and through that lens, I want to share my thoughts about my time with the incredible Hasselblad X1D.

Hasselblad X1D Review - the perfect medium-format camera

Let me start this review by saying that is the best product I have ever reviewed so far! Still a novelty but we love making reviews on ABDZ. Being able to test products and share our thoughts to you guys is quite rewarding; we will work effortlessly to do more in the upcoming new year. On the other hand, smartphones have changed so much during the course of 5 years time. Our standards are also higher in terms of features of what we want of our phone. We want a big battery, waterproof, fast charging and etc etc etc.

Our Picks: Headphones

And out of all of them, there are a few headphones that stood out. Here’s my list of the best headphones to get you through your day, workout, flight, or family dinner.

XD Design Bobby Bizz Anti-theft Backpack & Briefcase Review

I am a big fan of backpacks as my day to day bag of choice and have tried so many over the years. About every year I change my mind about what I think is important for a great backpack whether it's because I've started carrying new things or because I am trying to be more organized. The reality for me now is that I wanted something that was first very small but still could carry my laptop, iPad, camera (Sony RX1) and from time to time my Nintendo Switch. Of course it should be able to fit all of my cables, dongles and adapters too. Thank you Apple for that.

iOS 11 Review: Actually Useful Features

It is here! The most anticipated iOS that we've been waiting for a long time now. Is it worth the upgrade? Yes, definitely is. Overall, it's more or less the same but it's definitely an enhanced experience from its predecessor. I would say that is 2x the radical enhancement you will experience on the iPad, that's a nice move from Apple. For the review, we decided to change the formula of instead highlighting its new features. We'll be more focusing on useful features that you can use as a designer for your workflow. Let's dive into iOS 11!

MacBook Pro Review - Love and Hate with the Touch Bar

It's time for our honest appraisal of the MacBook Pro. After almost 5 years using my old MacBook Pro, a first generation retina display, the time had come for an upgrade. I've been chomping at the bit for Apple to announce a new laptop because mine was having a lot of issues. Be it the bevy of dead pixels, battery life of less than 1 hour to the most frustrating of all, ghosting effects on my screen. So finally, at the end of last year, Apple announced the new MacBook Pros with the Touch Bar. Time to hit the savings and purchase one.

Phone Review: Google Pixel

Let me start this review by saying that first of all I am a huge (hardcore) fan of Apple ever since the iPhone 4, where I still think that is the best phone they ever made. As of late, they haven’t been stepping it up their game in terms of innovation. In my opinion, they just have been strategically reinventing the wheel by recycling what’s been done and adding with some extras to get us excited for more.
