Drones to Take 80 Megapixel Photos Soon




/ 4 years ago

PhaseOne

PhaseOne announced today that it has developed the world’s smallest 80-megapixel medium format camera that is designed specifically for aerial photography.  The iXU 180 is a high-end low profile camera that weighs two pounds without a needed lens.

The camera has a tiny size, with a 3.8″x3.6″x4.3″ body that is gyro-mountable for steady shots.  With the camera and lens coming in at over three pounds it will take a decently powerful drone to serve as a base for using this camera. Along with the 80 megapixel version there will be two different 60 megapixel versions coming out, a black and white model and a color model.  The camera will start to ship in mid-April, but currently there is no word on pricing.
