New Drones

DJI

The DJI stand held two of their new models.

The Mavic Pro is a portable system with collapsible arms allowing it to fit into a small backpack. Its’ FlightAutonomy technology allows obstacle avoidance and hover precision, while ActiveTrack allows the drone to follow the subject matter with a number of different shooting modes. It comes with a 3-axis gimbal and 4K camera.

It is available for pre-order for £1,099.

The Phantom 4 Pro is an upgrade of the Phantom 4 . It improves on a number of areas of the previous drone:

  • Improved camera with a 1-inch 20 megapixel sensor from a 1/2.3 inch 12.3 megapixel sensor on the Phantom 4.
  • Stereo vision sensors on the rear of the drone in addition to the front facing ones that were on the original.
  • New infrared sensors on the left and right of the drone.
