This is it. After much leaks that we can’t be bother to look into, China’s drone giant DJI has finally revealed its next-generation Mavic drone, or should we say ‘drones’ because there are two Mavics: a Pro and a Zoom. I am sure the former is going to tickle the fancy of photography enthusiasts because, Hasselblad. You heard that right. The DJI Mavic 2 Pro features an onboard camera co-engineered with the legendary camera maker Hasselblad. Here’s what you can expect: Continue reading DJI Unveiled Two Mavic 2 Imaging Drone, One Has A Hasselblad Camera!
When it comes DJI, or imaging drones in general for that matter, cute is never in the agenda. I mean, seriously, were you expecting cute drone or something? No. Obviously. Oh, wait. You do? Well, if that’s the case, then China drone maker has a piece of good news for you. It has “cutiefied” (note: not a real word) its affordable drone, the DJI Spark by “characterizing” it with one of LINE FRIENDS’ most popular characters Brown. Brown, btw, is a cartoon bear. Continue reading DJI Made Spark Imaging Drone Cute With First Characterized Drone
DJI has never known for small drone. The smallest the China drone maker ever had until today is the Mavic. TBH, Mavic is not that small and therefore, it may not tickles some people’s fancy. But that changes a couple of days ago when the company announced an all-new Mavic, called Mavic Air. So how small are we talking about? Well, it is really small, like smartphone kind of small. When folded down, the DJI Mavic Air is not bigger than an iPhone 8 Plus which lead the company to proclaim it as the drone maker’s smallest drone yet. Continue reading DJI Announced A Super Portable Mavic Imaging Drone Called Mavic Air
When DJI first came onto the market 11 years ago, imaging wasn’t not its forte. The drone was (and still is today), but fast forward to today, the company has emerged from the shadow of popular cinematic camera makers to introduce its very own cinematic camera called Zenmuse X7. Billed as the world’s first Super 35 digital film camera, Zenmuse X7 is designed and built with professional aerial cinematography in mind. It is totally capable of capturing 6K CinemaDNG RAW or 5.2K Apple ProRes at up to 30fps as well as 3.9K CinemaDNG or 2.7K ProRes at up to 59.94fps. The camera is also capable of recording still images in DNG RAW or JPEG at 24MP. Continue reading DJI’s New Zenmuse X7 Will Make Inspire 2 A Capable Aerial Cinematography Rig
This is Spark, DJI’s mini imaging drone that is, well, fun. It is small, sports a refreshing design, and it launches right from the palm of your hand. While small, Spark has all the DJI technologies you will find on regular drones like the Phantom, or perhaps, even more. It powers up simply by recognizing your face, has stable hovering capability for capturing selfie/wefie, and it can return and land on your palm when you wave at it. And oh yea, in addition to the usual control means like DJI remote controller, mobile device, and DJI Goggles, Spark can be controlled by Continue reading DJI’s New Mini Drone Is Tech-packed And It’s Controllable By Hands Too
Drone has certainly changed the world drastically. It changes the way we take aerial images (in the process, making to-hire helicopters and telescopic booms obsolete) and lets ordinary folks reach out to places previously unaccessible to do things like building inspection, disaster area observation and whatnot. To say that a drone changed the way we live is definitely not an exaggeration. And of late, farmers in the agriculture industry also discover the benefit of drones – thanks to DJI MG-1S agriculture drone. This particular specialist multicopter is designed specifically to cover large parcel of crops in short amount of time, saving manpower and time. Continue reading How DJI Revolutionized Agricultural Industry With This Drone
Drone is probably one of the greatest invention of our time. It has a variety of uses, including imaging, land surveying, building inspection, taking down errand drones, and tracking crooks. It can even be used in entertainment where it could potentially displace traditional fireworks. Now, you can add umbrella on the list too. Wait, what? Yes. Brolly and and we are not even in April. It appears that this umbrella-equipped DJI Phantom 4 isn’t a joke; it is a real deal from UK drone seller, DronesDirect. DronesDirect, if you recall, is the same folks who brought you the 24k gold-plated DJI and so, I am guessing if these guys can dished out a gold-coated example, a DJI with umbrella shouldn’t be all that ridiculous, right? Ok, maybe it is a little out-of-this-world. Just a little. Continue reading Umbrella Drone Shelters, Because Nobody Likes Carrying An Umbrella
If you recall, we made a post about Apple’s Chinese New Year (CNY in short) event. In it, Apple offered a handful of CNY-themed products, along with some products in CNY-appropriate colorways, namely, red and gold. Though it is worthy to note that Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival as it is commonly known in modern times, is not about gifting, but still, it provides businesses an opportunity to dish out something special and in the case of China-based drone maker, DJI, it has prepared a special limited edition version of the Phantom 4, aptly named Phantom 4 Chinese New Year Edition, which was also featured on Apple’s Gifts inspired by this festive season. Continue reading DJI Gives Phantom 4 An Oriental Makeover For Chinese New Year
If Samsung is the juggernaut of the electronics industry, then we supposed DJI would be the equivalent in the drone industry. I am not kidding. The rate the outfit is rolling out drones is mind-boggling. Just this year alone, there are already three new drones and mind you, those are just what we have covered and not including the variety of accessories it has introduced. With so many drones for 2016, you may thought the drone maker would have chilled out for the end of the year and dig more into marketing for the holiday season. But no. They are far from done yet. In fact, the outfit has just announced two new drones: the ‘Pro’ version of the Phantom 4 introduced in March, Phantom 4 Pro, and a second-generation Inspire, dubbed Inspire 2, of course. Continue reading DJI Announced Inspire 2 And Phantom 4 Pro Video Drones And We Want Both!
So, you don’t have the money to fly in gold, or rose gold for that matter? Well, fret not. We have good news for you. You do not need to be obscenely rich to fly in gold cos’ with the DJI Phantom 4 Gold Edition offered by UK-based drone seller, DronesDirect, you can fly gold too, though granted, not so much as flying in gold. That’s kind of the ’discount’ you’d expect when you are paying a fraction of the price of a rose gold-treated Cobalt Valkyrie-X. Apparently, an one-off item and presumably created not by DJI but by DJI partner, DronesDirect, this particular imaging drone sets itself apart from the ‘lesser’ DJI Phantom 4 with a pretty stunning 24-carat gold plating on its body which also saw the landing gear getting the gold treatment.
