New quadrocopter DJI provides 4K video and independent camera control




DJI has a new quadrocopter announced, the Inspire 1. The new model has a price of $ 2800 and focuses on filmmakers. The drone has a 4k camera with 360 degree unobstructed view on board, which can be controlled independently of the drone.

The new Inspire one must build a bridge between the Phantom 2-consumer drones and professional Spreading Wings series. The latter is a version with 8 rotors, which is powerful enough to carry a DSLR or system camera, while the first is designed for action cameras, such as DJI’s own Vision +.

The Inspire 1 comes standard with a 4K camera developed by DJI, which can film with 30fps. Comprising 9 elements, including an aspherical lens element, and offers an angle of 94 degrees. The 1 / 2.3 “sensor is suitable to take pictures at a resolution of 12 megapixels, which can also be stored in the DNG format. The landing gear can be folded up when flying, so the camera 360 degrees view has, without the drone itself comes into view.

Including the battery weighs 2.9kg Inspire 1. He has a maximum speed of 22 meters per second with no wind, and can increase and decrease at a rate of 5 and 4 m / s, respectively. The maximum height is 4.5km and the 4500mAh battery is good for a flight of approximately 18 minutes.

The quadrocopter can be controlled with an app or controller to 1.7km height and can also be programmed to take off at a certain location and land again. The camera can be controlled independently of the drone, a second person or by the drone pilot himself, and is also able to keep itself a moving subject. A three-axis gimbal must give stable images. The camera can be disassembled and can be replaced in the future by another instance, although it is still unclear whether this is a camera from a third party, such as GoPro, can be. The DJI Inspire 1 has an MSRP of $ 2800 and goes into the EU probably around 2800 euros.
