NAB 2014: DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter Brings What We Want

Quadcopter with gimbal and camera

Press Release

Las Vegas, April 6, 2014 – DJI, a global leader in aerial photography and cinematography platforms, today announced the release of the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+, the world’s first flying camera that captures stabilized HD video out of the box.

 

The DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ features a built-in camera that shoots 1080p video at 30 frame-per-second (fps) and takes 14-megapixel pictures. The camera is mounted to a gimbal, an electronic stabilizer, ensuring the steadiness of the camera on 3 axes – pitch, roll and yaw – regardless of wind conditions or flight speed.

 

With its built-in GPS system, the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ will automatically stay in the same spot in the air even in winds of up to 40 kilometers-per-hour (25 miles-per-hour), allowing creators to focus on getting the right shot.

 

Using the DJI VISION App for iOS and Android devices, pilots can view what the camera is seeing in real time and control the camera from up to 700 meters (2,296 feet) away using the camera’s own Wi-Fi network. The DJIVISION App also displays key flight information including altitude, distance from pilot, and battery strength.

 

The DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ is also fully compatible with DJI’s Ground Station capabilities, which allows pilots to set a GPS path for the Phantom to navigate autonomously.

 

“We have been truly inspired by all the creative applications of our Phantom series so far –filmmaking, fire fighting, conservation and many others,” said Frank Wang, Chief Executive Officer of DJI. “By stabilizing the camera and making it easy to fly with minimal set up, we hope to inspire a new generation of aerial creators to take to the sky and capture their vision.”

 

The DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ ships with a first-of-its-kind firmware upgrade for the entire Phantom series. The upgrade makes it easy for pilots to follow international best flying practices by helping them avoid flying near airports and giving them the ability to set their own height and distance limitations in line with local regulations.

 

The DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ is available for pre-order through the DJI website and from authorized dealers across the globe for an MSRP of $1,299. Find out more at DJI.com/product/phantom-2-vision-plus.

Great quadcopter

I'm very excited about this model. The 3-axis gimbal really brings it up to speed with the custom solutions (Phantom + GoPro + ZenMuse) but puts it all into a consumer friendly, very easy package. I think we'll start to see a lot more great looking aerial videos soon!

Excellent Quadcopter For Aerial Photography

Hi, This is Michael Simpson,
 
I am a Die-Heart fanatic of Dji Phantom Quadcopter models. I especially admire the DJI's Phantom 2 Vision+ as one of the best quadcopters ever released. The GoPro Mount facility is one of the main reason why Dji Phantom is a preferred choice amongst many professional Short-Film makers.
 
The Gimbal technology add a touch of perfection for smooth aerial videography. I think this review is well-written and cover all the basics about Dji Phantom.

I totally agree with the reviews above. DJI made a good work and Vision+ really one of the best quadcopter with camera nowadays. Now its price went down, so I think this is the best moment to pick this camera drone and save some money.
