What is it? Drones are increasingly being used for photography and videography, but drone cameras have often been frustratingly limited. DJI claims to have taken a big step towards overcoming this with the Zenmuse X5R, a 4K drone camera with a Micro Four Thirds sensor built in.
When’s it due? Available now.
Why are we excited? Not only does it have a great sensor, but the X5R can record lossless 4K videos in raw format and take 16-megapixel photos as well. It’s a great option for people looking to take videography further and shoot in new ways. Drone camerawork just got serious.
