If you are a lover of the world of drones, you will surely know that many of the most complete models that you can acquire today are the Chinese DJI in your catalog. A company that in turn offers a good number of cameras, included as standard in some of its models or as an option to improve the capabilities of the system itself. Even so, and despite this great customization capacity, DJI does not hesitate to establish business relationships with experts in the field to offer even more capacity in taking images, this is precisely the reason that has led them to close an agreement with Hasselblad.
Hasselblad, an iconic brand related to the world of photography, has just announced that in the collaboration agreement it has been established that, while DJI makes the drone available Matrice 600, literally the most powerful and capable that the Chinese company has for sale today, Hasselblad will be in charge of developing a series of medium format cameras With which to maximize the capabilities in terms of image and video capture of this impressive drone.
Hasselblad makes 80 or 50 megapixel cameras available to DJI in medium format
As a detail, before continuing, tell you that just in November DJI announced the purchase of a large stake in the Hasselblad GroupIt has not been until now that we have truly seen the scope of this investment. Undoubtedly, a perfect bet for all those professionals related, for example, to the cartography, topography and photography sectors that need this type of cameras and products.
Returning to the bet of both companies, tell you that on the one hand we have the DJI Matrice M600, a drone compatible with the technologies Lightbridge 2 y Ronin-MX, capable of ensuring stability and image quality, while its powerful rotors make this system can carry up to 4 kilograms of weight. Second we have the camera Hasselblad A5D, a model that can be found in three configurations, two 80 megapixels and a more basic 50 megapixel, where we find a medium format sensor and a relatively compact body.
As a final detail, tell you that this product, the drone plus the Hasselblad camera, will hit the market at a price of U.S. dollar 24.400. For this price, the camera includes a 50-millimeter lens with an f / 3,5 aperture, a more than interesting option, although if you need other capabilities, you can purchase any lens separately. I leave you with a couple of examples of what this kit can do.
