Can you imagine the insane amount of detail in aerial shots that can be captured using a 100-megapixel medium-format camera? This could previously be done only by taking to the skies yourself in an airplane or helicopter. DJI has relieved us of buying a plane ticket, but has yet to announce a price tag for this flying contraption.
DJI told Fstoppers that its next project is a remote-controlled space telescope hanging from a Chinook double rotor helicopter. Seriously though, the Hasselblad H6D-100c is the pinnacle of camera technology at the moment. Its medium format 53.4 mm x 40.0 mm sensor offers outstanding fine detail, color reproduction, and tonal range. The Matrice 600 Pro can be guided by the D-RTK GNSS navigation system, which can withstand strong magnetic interference and provides highly precise centimeter-level 3D positioning.
It will be released in the third quarter of 2017 at a price to be announced at later date.
