DJI just announced two new Phantom 3 drones, now including an option to record in 4K.
The Phantom 3 Professional includes a 4K camera that shoots up to 30 fps while the Phantom 3 Advanced has a 1080p HD camera that records up to 60 fps. Both cameras have an f/2.8 lens with a 94 degree field of view. The flight system has been updated as well, and the remote controller is more touch responsive. It has a 3 axis gimbal which ensures stable shots and is completely controlled via the DJI Pilot App.
The DJI Pilot app is used to control all aspects of the camera. You can attach your smartphone to the drone’s remote controller and have complete control over all aspects of the camera, including a realtime HD display. The app also includes a flight simulator and a flight log which records details about previous flights.
We’ll keep you updated on when the Phantom 3 is released, and will look for it at NAB next week. For now you can visit DJI’s website which includes detailed information and specs about the device.
