Airmail is a great alternative email client to Apple’s built-in Mail app, and the latest update adds even more custom actions and app integrations that make it powerful. This mail client offers features similar to Dropbox’s discontinued Mailbox app with the ability to sort out messages for a later date, and Airmail version 1.5 introduces all new custom actions:
Panasonic’s recently-announced GH5 mirrorless camera checks off a lot of boxes: internal 10-bit 4:2:2 recording, dual SD Card slots, 4K @ 60p, in body 5-axis image stabilization, and much more.

You’ll get significantly better sound quality by opting for an external microphone like the Shure MV88 ($150 on Amazon).
