Shark Fin Cove (Aerial Photography) - Davenport, CA

On 8/15/2016, I took my DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter out to Shark Fin Cove in Davenport, CA for a flight so I can take some aerial scenery photos and shoot some aerial scenery video. I shot aerial photos, aerial video, DSLR video, and DSLR photos on this trip. In this blog post, I will share with you the aerial photos I took.

Shark Fin Cove is known for it's iconic "Shark Tooth" or "Shark Fin" shaped rock that is slightly off the shore. While the beach is a big hard to get down to (pretty steep climb), it is worth it once you get down there. Some other names this beach goes by is Shark Tooth Beach, Shark Tooth Cove, Shark Fin Beach, and Davenport Cove. This spot is awesome for some amazing aerial photos and videos. If you are an aerial photographer or just a regular land-based photographer, I definitely recommend you to visit this beach. Please note it tends to be cloudy, windy, and cold at this beach (I've been there a few times). I recommend you pack and dress appropriately!

As mentioned earlier, I also took other photos and videos on this trip too. Here are the links to those:
A few more links will come up soon as they are posted.

You can only get a shot from this angle from an aircraft. My quadcopter was flying over the ocean for this photo. The straight road you see on the top of the photo is State Route 1. The beach is located right next to it.

Shark Fin Cove - Davenport, CA Aerial Scenery (Shot With DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter) - Video


Aerial scenery from Shark Fin Cove in Davenport, CA. The video footage was shot with a DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter on August 15th, 2016. Shark Fin Cove is a small secluded beach on the side of State Route 1 near Santa Cruz, CA. The beach is also known as Shark Fin Beach, Shark Tooth Beach, Shark Tooth Cove, or Davenport Cove. The cove gets its name from its rock that looks like a shark fin or shark tooth.

In this video, I show some stationary scenery where I just let my quadcopter hover in the air, and a scenery shot where I circle the rock.

DSLR video and blog posts are coming soon.

Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB 3.0 Cable (3ft) Review (Video)


I review the 3 feet Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB 3.0 Cable. This is a USB-C cable that is up to USB-C specifications with a 56k Ohm pull-up resistor which is required to denote that cable uses the legacy standard for backwards compatibility. Also this product comes with Anker's great customer support. I have been Anker's customer for years. Most of my products are good, but when I do have a problem, Anker's customer support always corrects things for me (when with-in the warranty period). This is why I am still their customer even after all these years. In the video, I also compare this cable to the Choetech USB-C to USB 2.0 cable.

Please note that any USB-C cable with USB-A plug on one end will not charge your 5V 3A devices at the maximum current. Legacy USB-A chargers go up to 5V 2.4A max. As mentioned, in my testing with my Huawei Nexus 6P, I didn't notice too big of a charging speed difference even with the lower current output.
