DJI and Hasselblad bundling drone with 50-megapixel camera




DJI and Hasselblad have begun offering a set consisting of the DJI Matrice 600 drone and A5D Hasselblad camera for aerial photography. The camera has a medium format sensor with a resolution of 50 megapixels.

The collection is the first concrete product announcement of the two brands since DJI and Hasselblad in November last year announced they would work together. They are not new products, both the drone and the camera were sold separately. The set will retail for 24,400 euros, excluding VAT.

DJI presented the Matrice 600, or M600, in April. The quadcopter itself weighs 9,1kg and can carry up to 6kg. That’s enough for the Hasselblad camera A5D including Ronin-MX gimbal to get in the air. This combination weighs about 4kg.

The Hasselblad A5D camera is the same 50 megapixel sensor as in medium-format cameras such as the H6D and the recently announced X1D system camera. There is no movie function available, the A5D is intended for aerial photography.

The lens has a focal length of 50mm and maximum aperture of f / 3.5. Because the sensor in the Hasselblad camera is larger than that of a full frame-DSLR, the focal point corresponds to 42mm in full frame-equivalent. The camera has no moving parts and the focus of the lens is set at infinity.
