Their drone technology has been used worldwide throughout the film, television and music industries, and has seen them collect a number of awards.
The Inspire 2 is the latest drone from DJI that has been specifically designed for professional cinematography and photography.
It comes with a revolutionary first-person view camera, thus making controlling the quadcopter an easy task, capturing high-quality images without the need for a second payload.
The DJI Inspire 2 is ideal for:
- Professional cinematography
- Aerial photography
DJI Matrice 200 Series
The DJI Matrice 200 Series is built to endure and engineered to adapt. These are enterprise drones and aren’t usually intended to be used by the consumer market.
The attachment of multiple sensors allows the M200 series to create an impressive aerial surveying tool.
Each of the models is IP43 weatherproof and is fitted with an ADS-B receiver which improves the safety as it allows you to be aware of any unmanned drones in the area, as well as any restrictions that may be in place in the area.
The Matrice 600 Pro inherits everything that was good about the M600 and adds to it, and both are two of the most intuitive heavy lifting rigs available.
The improved flight performance and better loading capacity are just two of the fantastic additions to the Pro.
The required set up time is vastly reduced due to the pre-installed arms and antennas.
The airframe is also equipped with the latest DJI technologies:
- A3 Pro Flight Controller
- Lightbridge 2 HD transmission system
- Intelligent Batteries
- Battery Management Systems
The Phantom 4 Pro is DJI’s entry-level quadcopter and is ideal for both hobbyists and commercial operators alike.
It’s capable of capturing incredibly impressive, high-quality footage at up to 4K resolution at 60fps.
The FlightAutonomy system makes flying the Pro an easy task for those new to drone flying. This also adds dual rear vision sensors and infrared sensing systems for a 5-direction of obstacle sensing and 4-direction of obstacle avoidance.
For a drone that’s designed for aerial surveying and 3d mapping, look no further than the new DJI Phantom 4 RTK. Built specifically with surveyors in mind, the Phantom 4 RTK incorporates a new real-time kinematics (RTK) system to maintain positional accuracy and deliver survey-grade data.
With this launch, DJI has rethought its drone technology from the ground-up, revolutionizing its systems to achieve a new standard for drone accuracy – offering Phantom 4 RTK customers centimetre-accurate data while requiring fewer ground control points.
The Mavic Pro is a small but incredibly powerful drone, capable of capturing impressive footage up to 4K resolution. It comes in a compact size and is coupled with intelligent auto flight modes such as TapFly. It’s an ideal option for those new to flying drones.
It has one of DJI’s most sophisticated flying cameras ever and comes complete with a highly durable carry bag to allow easy transportation.
The all-new transmission system has a 4.3 mile (7km) range. The 4K camera is stabilised by a 3-axis mechanical gimbal.
The DJI Mavic Air is one of DJI’s most portable drones yet and is ideal for those in the early stages of starting a commercial drone business. It inherits the best of the Mavic series, this ultraportable and foldable drone features high-end flight performance and functionality for limitless exploration.
It shoots impressive HDR photos and also has the capability to film in 4K Ultra HD. Its camera also boasts Horizontal, Vertical and 180° panoramas.
Its 3D foldable design is as tall and wide as a smartphone was folded.
The DJI Mavic 2 Pro is a small yet powerful drone from DJI and is capable of capturing high-quality footage up to 4K resolution making it an incredibly impressive camera drone. This is an ideal drone for beginners due to its compact size and ease of flight. It’s ideal for both training purposes, as well as being more than capable of being used as a commercial drone.
The DJI Mavic 2 Pro features a CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) Hasselblad camera. The new Mavic 2 Pro features OcuSync 2.0 which provides you with 1080p video stream up to 8 km (5 miles) away.
The DJI Mavic 2 Zoom is a small yet powerful drone from DJI and can shoot video at a high-quality, up to 4K resolution. This is an ideal drone for beginners due to its compact size and ease of flight. It’s ideal for both training purposes, as well as being more than capable of being used as a commercial drone. It has a maximum flight time of 31 minutes.
The Mavic 2 Zoom features a 2x optical zoom (24mm-48mm). It also features the “dolly zoom effect”. The new Mavic 2 Zoom features OcuSync 2.0. This provides you with 1080p video stream up to 8 km (5 miles) away.
The Mavic 2 Enterprise, along with its advanced controls, modular accessories, password protection and more, has been specifically designed to be used as an everyday tool in close range drone operations.
It is suitable for the following applications:
- Infrastructure inspections
- Search and rescue
- Fire response
Improved FlightAutonomy gives you omnidirectional obstacle sensing2, an advanced sensing system comprised of 8 high-resolution vision and 2 infrared sensors placed on the sides of the aircraft. The result? A powerful set of sensors that determine the relative speed and distance between the aircraft and an object, so you can fly and hover with more stability than ever in a wide range of open and complex environments.
DJI Zenmuse Range
The DJI Zenmuse X5S is a Micro 4/3 camera designed for aerial cinematography and capable of capturing high-quality 5.2K footage in both CinemaDNG video and Apple ProRes.
The Zenmuse X7 is the latest integrated aerial camera from DJI. Its a compact Super 35 camera with an integrated gimbal made for high-end filmmaking that delivers stunning resolution and image quality for commercial drone operators.
