DJI unveils the X5 and X5R Micro Four Thirds camera gimbal

DJI today revealed the X5 and X5R, their first Micro Four Thirds (MFT) camera gimbals, the specifications are very impressive indeed, DJI in releasing these cameras has almost certainly killed off much of the need for expensive big rigs to carry the likes of the Panasonic GH4. In another surprise move, the gimbal doesn’t only support a single prime lens but 3 in total. Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm f2.0 [FOV 84°] Full Frame 24mm equivalent. DJI MFT 14mm f1.7 […]

Has the Solo launch derailed?

Has the Solo launch derailed?

The longest launch? The Solo launch feels like the longest launch in multicopter history and possibly the bumpiest so far. In April with the launch of the Solo at NAB, 3DR probably couldn’t have hoped for a better start, the Solo piqued interest far beyond any of 3DR’s previous multicopters, the Solo felt fresh and exciting.

In a move that smacks of denial DJI support staff have publicly […]

DJI & 3DR target prosumers with new multicopters

DJI & 3DR target prosumers with new multicopters

It’s been a busy week with the launch of the DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter with its built in 4k camera which is interchangeable, now 3D Robotics has launched a new X8+ multicopter, albeit, it’s not really new, so much as an update to an existing product. Already comparisons are being made between DJI’s and 3DR’s multicopters given the fact both launched within close proximity, yet it’s clear the X8+ and Inspire are not really competing or likely to appeal to […]
