DJI’s drones have come with geofencing technology since 2013 but amid recent reports of drones causing disruptions at airports, the company has now decided to further improve the geofencing of its drones. Drones pose serious risks to airplanes and have caused numerous flight delays over the past few years as airports often have to shut down operations until they’re sure that no drones are in the flight path.
DJI, the largest manufacturer of consumer drones, has revealed that it has to take a hit of $150 million due to employee fraud. Some employees were inflating the cost of parts for their personal gain and these incidents of suspected corruption have resulted in a financial hit of around $150 million in 2018.
There are reasons why drones are not allowed to fly over crowds. This is due to safety because should a drone suddenly lose power, it will crash to the ground and depending on how big it is and whether the rotary blades are still moving, can cause pretty serious accidents as we have seen in the past.
DJI has launched a new controller for its drones that costs $650 and features a built-in display. The controller doesn’t support all of its drones as it’s expensive than a couple of them in the first place. It’s only meant for use with the Mavic 2 Zoom and Mavic 2 Pro drones. Think of it as an expensive R/C controller that has a 5.5 inch 1080p display which runs Android.
Earlier thanks to leaked images, it appeared that DJI had a new product called the DJI Osmo Pocket in the works. For those who might have been intrigued by the idea of a small and potentially pocketable version of the Osmo gimbal, you’ll be pleased to learn that DJI has since officially taken the wraps off it.
DJI is a company known for their drones, but in more recent times the company has started to expanded into more camera-related products and technology, such as with the DJI OSMO and OSMO Mobile gimbals, where these are devices that can be used if you want to record video with as little shakiness as possible.
Just like how there are some people who fear that their plane will suddenly stop and fall from the sky, there are some who are worried about drones as well. Given that some of these drones are heavy, clearly having them fall on you or a random stranger from a great height is a danger that’s hard to ignore.
When it comes to drones, there are so many different types of drones to choose from. These drones range from being palm-sized used for fun, to larger models used for photography and videography, then even larger models that are used for industrial purposes, which DJI has recently unveiled in the form of the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise.
Ever since drones have gotten more popular, more regulations have been created to help manage them, such as making it illegal for drones to fly in certain spaces, such as near airports as there have been multiple instances where we have seen near collisions with airplanes. However it seems that the FAA has decided to relax their rules a little.
In recent times thanks to leaks and rumors, we have been hearing about DJI’s plans to launch a new series of Mavic drones, and sure enough the company has. DJI has officially announced two new camera drones in the form of the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom, with DJI touting both drones as being the “most advanced” DJI camera drone ever built.
We have been hearing rumors that DJI is working on a new drone in the form of the Mavic 2. Now thanks to a render obtained by the folks at Photo Rumors, we have a better idea of what the upcoming drone could look like. The render also also seems to corroborate a leaked image from earlier this month in terms of its design.
DJI makes some great drones that have commercialized semi-pro drone technology. The company is now believed to be working on the successor of the Mavic Pro which may be called the Mavic 2. An image of the drone has been leaked online and the accompanying report suggests that the new drone may feature 360-degree obstacle avoidance.
DJI may be famous for its drones but the company also makes a variety of other products that are meant for photography and videography enthusiasts. Take its new Ronin S for example, it’s a single-handed stabilizer for DSLR cameras and it’s meant for those who want to capture shake-proof video with their DSLRs. The Ronin S single-handed stabilizer features 3-axis stabilization to ensure that the video shots remain completely steady. […]
According to a leaked photo from last month, it seemed to suggest that DJI could be working on a new Phantom drone that could feature an interchangeable lens camera. No doubt this sounds like an amazing idea and now thanks to newly leaked photos, more images of the rumored Phantom 5 drone have found their way online.
