DJI and Hasselblad Unveil 100-megapixel Aerial Photography Platform

News image

DJI and Hasselblad have introduced the World's first 100-megapixel integrated drone imaging platform. The flight platform for the combination is the DJI M600 Pro drone, an advanced and adaptable six-rotor flight platform equipped with the powerful Lightbridge 2 transmission system, a dustproof propulsion system and six Intelligent Flight Batteries. The M600 Pro can be guided by the D-RTK GNSS navigation system, which can withstand strong magnetic interference to provide highly precise centimeter-level 3D positioning. The on-board camera is the 100-megapixel Hasselblad H6D-100C, which features a 645 format sensor that offers outstanding detail, colour reproduction and tonal range even in poor lighting conditions. The camera mounts on the drone through the Ronin-MX three-axis stabilized gimbal, which uses powerful motors and inertial measurement units to resist high G-forces, maintain stability and hold the horizon. The M600/Ronin-MX/H6D-100c platform is on display through April 27 at the NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, in DJI booth #C2807 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The combination will be released in the third quarter of 2017 at a price to be announced later.
