Drone filming is getting more and more popular. There many affordable drones that can make nice quality videos, but until now there weren’t any drones capable of lifting professional camera. The professional cameras have a weight of about 10 pounds and require stability for shooting.
DJI Matrice 600 has the requirements needed to lift and control professional filming gear. It is designed specifically for professional use. The drone can carry weight up to 13.2 pounds. With such lifting power, you can use a big variety of cameras.
The DJI Matrice 600 allows the recorders to successfully shoot professional aerial movies for about 15 to 40 minutes. The length of the battery life depends on from the load on the drone. Anyway there’s always the possibility of additional battery packages. The shooting from the air is controlled with self-adaptive system, and the drone is adjusting automatically depending on the payload it is carrying. It also has the option to add GPS radios and extra IMUs for real-time data comparison. The drone is successfully paired with Lightbridge 2, a video streaming device that successfully streams 1080p videos at 60fps with a maximum distance of 3 miles.
Combining professional camera, the DJI Matrice 600 and a streaming device will bring the shooting to another level. Imagine filming events from the air or streaming soccer match with technology like this. It will be a huge improvement for the movie industry too. A movie filmed with technology such as this should be worth watching. Imagine the car chases of Fast and Furious or the battles of Game of Throne filmed from the air.
DJI is releasing gimbal which can work with most of the cameras. With the gimbal, users will be able to move and to rotate the camera and keep the footage steady.
The DJI Matrice 600 is released, and the price for this professional filming drone is 5000$
