Critics are unhappy with a new bill that has just been passed, allowing authorities to shoot down private drones. It allows the government to destroy any drone that is considered a “credible threat,” and many believe the move is “dangerous” and “doesn’t include enough safeguards.”
There's a been a lot of back and forth in recent years about the risk drones pose to airplanes and the type of damage they could possibly cause if an impact were to occur, but little true research has been done. This video follows a research team that used an air cannon to fire a drone at an airplane wing to study the damage that occurred.
Flying in controlled airspace near airports requires you to submit a complex authorization to the FAA and the process may take up to 90 days to get approved. But the federal administration just granted permission to nine organizations, including DJI, to process near-real-time airspace authorizations.
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Hasselblad is how expensive the gear is, and secondly, the amazing quality of the images, and what you get with the medium format sensor regarding dynamic range and the great colors images taken with the cameras they contain. But when they partnered with DJI with the Mavic Pro 2, image quality seems to be a problem.
DJI's Mavic drone was a leap forward for the company in portability, but the camera performance lagged behind ithe Phantom series. With the addition of an integrated on-board Hasselblad camera on the recently launched Mavic 2 Pro, DJI's smaller UAV is finally ready to take on its big brother in this video from Colin Smith at PhotoshopCAFE.
Recently, Hasselblad released a 20-megapixel, 1-inch sensor on DJI's new Mavic 2 Pro, but in the grand scheme of things, Hasselblad may have a few bigger plans for the future when it comes to cameras that can fly. Having the ability to throw an A6D on a Matrice 600 Pro to capture 100-megapixel raw images has never been so easy.
With every new model, flying a drone becomes easier, but for the first-time users, things might still seem complicated. To reduce the risks and not to leave it to luck, you should watch this step-by-step guide, demonstrated on the newly introduced DJI Mavic drones.
