On April 25, EJI and Hasselblad announced their collaboration that will bring together the DJI M600 Pro Drone, the Ronin-MX Gimbal and the Hasselblad H6D-100c Camera in the aerial photography market.
“The DJI M600 Pro drone, the Ronin-MX gimbal and the Hasselblad H6D-100c camera combine each company’s unparalleled technological expertise to create an unprecedented tool for precise, detailed and accurate aerial imaging,” says DJI. “Professional drone users can continuously control camera operations in flight using the DJI GO app, in order to provide rich imagery for landscape and fine-art photography, robust data for surveying and mapmaking, and endless possibilities for future professional endeavors.”
Here is a quick rundown of the three products involved in this DJI-Hasselblad collaboration:
DJI M600 Pro drone
DJI has described the M600 Pro as “an advanced and adaptable six-rotor flight platform equipped with the powerful Lightbridge 2 transmission system, a dustproof propulsion system and six Intelligent Flight Batteries.”
The M600 Pro has the option of being guided by the D-RTK GNSS navigation system, which DJI says has a resistance to strong magnetic interference.
Hasselblad H6D-100c camera
The Hasselblad H6D-100c is built with a large 53.4 mm x 40.0 mm sensor that DJI says “offers outstanding detail, color reproduction and tonal range even in poor lighting conditions use the HC and HCD lens family.”
The H6D-100c camera is mounted to the drone through the Ronin-MX three-axis stabilized gimbal. DJI says the gimbal uses “powerful motors and inertial measurement units to resist high G-forces,” which should allow for maintained stability.
DJI says the M600/Ronin-MX/H6D-100c platform will be released in the third quarter of 2017, with the price yet to be announced.
