DJI and Hasselblad 100-Megapixel Integrated Aerial Photography Platform!
DJI’s partnership with Hasselblad, the Swedish manufacturer of medium format cameras and lenses, has led to the release of the first ever 100-megapixel integrated drone.
Debuted at NAB Show, the DJI M600 Pro drone, the Ronin-MX gimbal and the Hasselblad H6D-100c camera combine each company’s technological expertise to create a tool for precise, detailed and accurate aerial imaging.
Which drone does this work on?
The Hasselblad H6D-100c camera flies on the DJI M600 Pro drone. This is six-rotor hexacopter which comes with the Lightbridge 2 transmission system, a dustproof propulsion system and six Intelligent Flight Batteries.
The drone’s D-RTK GNSS navigation system can withstand strong magnetic interference to provide highly precise centimeter-level 3D positioning, making it the M600 Pro suitable for commercial, industrial and scientific applications.
In addition, operators can control camera operations in flight using the DJI GO app, to provide rich imagery for landscape and fine-art photography, robust data for surveying and mapmaking, and more.
Tell me about the camera!
The Hasselblad H6D-100c camera has a large 53.4 mm x 40.0 mm sensor that offers outstanding detail, color reproduction and tonal range even in poor lighting conditions using the HC and HCD lens family.
The camera mounts on the drone through the Ronin-MX three-axis stabilized gimbal, which uses powerful motors and inertial measurement units to resist high G-forces, maintain stability and hold the horizon.
Where can I learn more?
The DJI and Hasselblad combination will be released in the third quarter of 2017. The price is yet to be announced.
