Hasselblad and DJI Release Medium Format Camera Drone

Hasselblad and DJI are today announcing something that sees your puny 5D in a drone and scoffs at it. The companies took their M600 and A5D, then put them together into a package for the serious aerial landscape/cityscape/creepy prowler photographer. That right–50MP in medium format above the skyline.

The combination comes with six batteries, an advanced gimbal system, an a3 flight controller, the Lightbridge 2 Professional HD transmission system, a dust-proof propulsion system and app control. At the heart of this picture taking device is a medium format sensor with a modified 50mm f3.5 lens attached. That means that you’re getting a very wide angle (almost 35mm in full frame equivalency.)

 

Once we can find more information, we’ll update this post. So far, Hasselblad seems to be hitting home runs out of the park this year. We can only imagine what’s coming to Photokina.
