We all know that this is a 8-prop UAV carries GoPro with a fully automated flight control system. This is best suited only at cinematographers, but also for surveyors and miners too. Does this new Inspire 1 Drone 3D Robotics carry a mirror less camera? Can anyone update more information about this please…
Does new Inspire 1 Drone 3D Robotics contains a mirror less camera?
Yes, it has a mirrorless camera.
3D Robotics is not about to let DJI hog all the press with its wild Inspire 1 Drone, so it just revealed its own semi-pro model: the X8+. The 8-prop UAV is designed to carry GoPro or lightweight mirrorless cameras, while offering a fully automated flight control system .
The X8+ is an upgrade on the X8 model in nearly every way. It'll carry 800 grams and fly up to 18 minutes, but if you're willing to sacrifice endurance, you can carry up to 2.2 pounds with, say, a mirrorless camera. 3D Robotics says it'll fly Blackmagic Design's Pocket Cinema Camera, for instance, which is rather heavy for its size at 350 grams . That means it'll easily work with Sony's mirrorless NEX cameras or compact models like Panasonic's LX100. For an extra $350, you can also kit it with an FPV GoPro liveview kit for easier scouting and aerial photography.
