Medium format camera manufacturer Hasselblad and drone authority DJI have presented what they call a “high-end aerial camera-platform combo.” By that, they mean they built an all-in-one package that merges Hasselblad’s 50MP A5D-50c aerial camera and DJI’s Matrice 600 hexocopter. It will be their first joint product since DJI acquired a minority stake in Hasselblad Group.
The combination of the M600 and the A5D provides users with today’s most advanced aerial optics and sensors, integrated with one of the world’s most reliable aerial platforms. “Combining [them] is a natural development for DJI and Hasselblad,” claims Perry Oosting, CEO of Hasselblad. “We are delighted to provide this unique bundle to professional photographers, surveyors and mappers.”
DJI’s M600 is designed for maximum performance and smart flight safety. It comes fully equipped with the Ronin-MX gimbal system, 6 intelligent batteries, A3 flight controller, Lightbridge 2 Professional HD transmission system, a dust-proof propulsion system and powerful app control. On the other side, Hasselblad’s A5D combines the world’s best optics and sensors with a modern, compact design. It comes standard with Hasselblad’s Natural Colour Solution and has a strong seal on the camera body and sensor unit, preventing dust in the optical system.
