November 28, 2018 -- DJI, the world's leader in creative camera technology, today announced Osmo Pocket, a highly compact three-axis stabilized camera created for everyone. Designed to be incredibly easy to use, Osmo Pocket offers a host of intelligent features to help capture creative videos and photographs in a portable form factor.

"Innovation is at the heart of every product we create and DJI Osmo Pocket is here to change the way photos and videos are captured, not just by professionals but by parents, couples, adventurers, travelers, and everyone in between," said Roger Luo, President at DJI. "Osmo Pocket is a portable personal camera crew and we can't wait to see how people use it to capture their stories and share them with the world."

Small yet powerful

At just over 4 inches tall, Osmo Pocket is DJI's smallest three-axis stabilized camera. It redefines DJI's family of handheld gimbals offering features never before seen in a product this compact. A 1/2.3-inch sensor records 12-megapixel photographs and 4K video up to 60fps at 100Mbps in stunning detail. Osmo Pocket also uses built-in dual microphones and advanced noise-canceling algorithms to ensure you capture high quality audio to match your footage. Furthermore, a battery life of up to two hours shooting video in 4K, 30fps means you can always rely on Osmo Pocket to capture your story no matter where you are at the very best quality.

Smooth, stable video

Building on DJI's experience creating gimbal technology, Osmo Pocket helps capture stable video for all of life's moments. The state-of-the-art three-axis mechanical gimbal compensates for movements and smooths these motions so you can focus on composition and subject matter. Whether you are taking videos of your vacation or documenting special holiday moments, Osmo Pocket helps ensure your video comes out smooth.

Simple and smart

Designed with ease of use in mind, Osmo Pocket doesn't just let anyone shoot cinematic footage; it empowers creativity. The gimbal camera uses a 1-inch integrated touch screen that provides a high quality live view as well as the ability to toggle through the various shooting modes, adjust settings, review footage and gain access to a full suite of creative features including:

  • ActiveTrack- DJI's image recognition algorithms allow Osmo Pocket to recognize and follow subjects of your choice, perfect for capturing family moments easily with the tap of your finger.
  • FaceTrack- FaceTrack takes ActiveTrack one step further. With enhanced ActiveTrack algorithms, FaceTrack automatically recognizes a human face and locks the subject in center of the frame at all times. It does not identify individual faces, but keeps the camera centered on one. To initiate FaceTrack, simply select selfie mode and the camera will detect your face.
  • Timelapse & Motionlapse- If you're looking to turn minutes into seconds, Timelapse is perfect for capturing unique content with the effect of the world moving faster around you, while Motionlapse adds the dynamic element of camera movement to your Timelapse.
  • FPV Mode- FPV Mode lets you capture your greatest adventures by recording video from your perspective. Instead of locking the gimbal to maintain the horizon, FPV tells the camera to follow your every tilt and lean, shooting dynamic footage exactly as you experienced it.
  • 3x3 & 180° Panorama- For capturing breathtaking wide-angle photos, Osmo Pocket offers two Panorama modes. 3X3 takes an expansive 9 images in total while 180° mode captures 4 images. Osmo Pocket software stitches them together automatically so you can focus on the framing of the scene.

Unlock the full power of Osmo Pocket

A universal port under the touchscreen allows users to connect their mobile devices that use iOS Lightning or USB-C. Upon connection, the new dedicated DJI Mimo app will automatically open and serves as a monitor, while in-app menu offers a variety of intelligent features and recording modes:

  • Story Mode -- Bring creative editing to your video with a host of preset music, video transitions and coloring. Choose one of 10 fun templates and Mimo will handle the camera movement for you. After finishing, Mimo automatically generates your very own short story, ready to be shared.
  • Pro Mode - If you want even more control over your content, "Pro mode" gives you access to camera setting adjustments and exposure settings to let you create exactly how you want, from rich video in bright conditions to a perfect handheld long exposure photo at night. Whatever you want to shoot, Osmo Pocket and DJI Mimo let you explore and expand your creativity. Osmo Pocket automatically detects and illuminates low-lit scenes into bright photos. This helps eliminates the need for a tripod, and you can rely on the gimbal to keep the camera still for a shutter speed of up to three seconds. Illuminate the dark, or capture the movement of light in a "light painting." You're only limited by your imagination.

A versatile tool with a range of accessories

An ecosystem of accessories unlocks the potential of Osmo Pocket:

  • Accessory Mount- The accessory mount makes Osmo Pocket compatible with action camera accessories so you're able to capture your adventure footage, such as when mounted on a helmet, backpack or your wrist.
  • Wireless Module- The wireless module supports Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth transmission between Osmo Pocket and your smartphone, providing remote access to the camera feed and control of Osmo Pocket; perfect for setting up a Timelapse or Motionlapse on a busy city street.
  • Controller Wheel- The wheel allows you to precisely control gimbal movement (left-right or up-down) enabling you to easily adjust the composition of your shot. Re-center the gimbal or switch to selfie mode easily with dedicated buttons on the handle.
  • Expansion Kit- The expansion kit includes the Accessory Mount, Wireless Module and Controller Wheel.
  • ND Filters Set-** Specifically designed for Osmo Pocket, ND filters attach to the front of the camera to reduce the amount of light entering the sensor. The ND Filter Set offers several levels of filter darkness and allows for more control over the camera's aperture, exposure time, and sensor sensitivity settings.
  • Waterproof Case-** Bring a unique underwater perspective to your footage using the Waterproof Case which can be placed at a depth of 60 meters.
  • Extension Rod-** The Extension Rod attaches to the Lightning or USB-C port and provides 31 inches of reach to Osmo Pocket, opening a world of new creative angles that are normally difficult or impossible to get. A gimbal control joystick and camera button on the handle were designed for remote control when using the Extension Rod and a tripod was added to the bottom for expanded use cases
  • Charging Case-** This dual-purpose case not only protects Osmo Pocket while in transit but charges it as well. Dedicated sections were added into the case for your MicroSD card and ND filters so you can quickly grab your Osmo Pocket and know you're ready to capture those moments and adventures.
  • 3.5mm Adapter-** The 3.5mm Adapter allows you to connect an external microphone if you prefer to capture audio using a separate device.

Price and Availability

Osmo Pocket retails for $349 USD and will be available for pre-order at store.dji.com, DJI Flagship Stores, DJI Authorized Retailers and additional retailers beginning today, November 28th 2:15 PM EST.

DJI Ronin-S Gimbal http://webmail.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/18673/dji-ronin-s-gimbal Sun, 07 Jan 2018 10:34:35 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 18673@/talks/discussions image

January 7, 2018 – DJI, the world’s leader in creative camera technology, introduced two new handheld camera stabilizers at CES 2018 – Osmo Mobile 2 and Ronin-S. Built for smartphones, DSLRs, and mirrorless camera systems, they give consumers, professional videographers and photographers new tools to capture smooth, steady videos and stunning photos wherever they go.

Ronin-S: DJI’s first single-handed stabilizer for DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras. Built for efficient setup and ease of use with a compact form and dedicated buttons to control camera settings and precise positioning, plus intelligent features for advanced shooting modes all designed to help bring a steady shot to any set.

“With the introduction of these two stabilizers, DJI now offers gimbal technology to help unlock the creative storyteller in everyone no matter what camera they’re using,” said Paul Pan, Senior Product Manager at DJI. “Osmo Mobile 2 offers the best in smartphone stabilization at an affordable price, and Ronin-S brings the quality of DJI’s professional gimbal technology to a new form factor that is perfect for run-and-gun filming using your favorite DSLR or mirrorless camera system.”

Ronin-S – Bring a Steady Shot to Any Set

Ronin-S is DJI’s first single-handed stabilizer for DSLR and mirrorless camera systems. Available in two frame sizes for either camera type, DJI’s powerful three-axis gimbal technology delivers smooth, shake-free video and crisp photos, adding a cinematic and professional look to your work.

Powerful high-torque motors support the most popular camera and lens combinations including the Canon 5D, Panasonic GH and Sony Alpha systems. Its stabilization system compensates for zoom lenses with higher magnification ratios and an external zooming barrel, while its advanced stabilization algorithms work with both in-camera and in-lens optical stabilization technology.

Capturing stabilized video has never been easier because Ronin-S was designed for easy setup and use. A new Push mode lets you adjust the pan and tilt axis by hand while the Ronin-S is powered on and axis locks speed up the setup process so you can spend more time filming and less time prepping your gear. Ronin-S has a comfortable, ergonomic curved design that helps capture smooth cinematic movements from upright to underslung positions without obstructing the camera’s display. Ronin-S also features DJI’s intelligent battery technology that can be hot-swapped during operation for extended shoots.*

Dedicated control buttons for the camera and gimbal let you toggle between SmoothTrack settings, record and stop the camera, and the high-precision joystick changes the camera position to help frame your shot perfectly. A new Sport mode allows for fast movements with tight and quick subject following speed.

Harness intelligent shooting modes on Ronin-S through the DJI Ronin mobile app to create complex camera moves automatically like Panorama, Hyperlapse, Track and CamAnchor that lets you designate specific camera positions in a scene and rotate between them on demand. Directly customize SmoothTrack settings with dedicated controls for responsiveness of each axis. Camera settings can be directly adjusted as well.**

Ronin-S is compatible with a variety of DJI Pro Accessories to capture any scene and expand your creative freedom on set or location. Supported accessories include a Focus Control Center consisting of a focusing dial and a screen allowing advanced gimbal and focus control without a mobile device, a vehicle mount solution, DJI Master Force, DJI Master Wheels, an external focus motor, and a cheese plate adapter so you can use your favorite third-party accessories. A dual-handle support will also be available for when an added level of comfort and stability is required.

Price and Availability

Ronin-S will be available in the second quarter of 2018 from dji.com, DJI Flagship Stores, DJI Authorized Retail Stores, and DJI Resellers worldwide***. Pricing will be announced prior to availability. Additional information on Ronin-S can be found at www.dji.com/ronin-s.

Parrot Anafi 4K HDR foldable drone - $699.99 http://webmail.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/19832/parrot-anafi-4k-hdr-foldable-drone-699.99 Wed, 06 Jun 2018 19:54:18 -0600 PauloTeixeira 19832@/talks/discussions I'm going to the Azores and Portugal next month and thought of getting a new lens or 2 for the GH5 and now this news had to happen. I'll try to decide if I should get this. Looks interesting.

"Parrot, Europe's leading drone group and the world number 2 on the consumer segment, unveiled its new-generation drone, ANAFI, on Wednesday June 6, with a positive welcome from the media. Designed in Paris by Parrot's engineers, the ANAFI drone meets four essential needs: portability, image quality, performance and ease of use.

Today, ANAFI offers:

  • A 4K HDR camera with zoom, a 21MP sensor, a 3-axis stabilization system with, for the first time, a 180 ° vertically rotating camera and a lossless zoom up to x2.8
  • An impressive flight time of 25 minutes, made possible by a "bio-inspired" design combined with a smart battery
  • An ultra-portable, compact, rugged, lightweight and foldable UAV with a USB-C charging system
  • A new intuitive app (FreeFlight 6) with automated drone and camera movements

For Henri Seydoux, Parrot's Chairman and CEO and leading shareholder: "ANAFI represents a major breakthrough for Parrot and for the world of civil drones in general. By combining the best image quality with advanced features and simple use in an ultra-light and portable drone, Parrot, Europe's leading drone manufacturer, has created a drone that can not only record unforgettable memories at home, but also offers a range of benefits for businesses. We spent two years working on this, drawing on our software and hardware expertise and identifying the best components to offer ANAFI to users of today and tomorrow".

ANAFI: the future starts now

Parrot has created a new-generation drone, part-robot, part-insect, inspired by bees: light, powerful and agile, with an exceptional field of vision.

ANAFI is the first drone to offer 4K HDR and 4K Cinema with an integrated zoom, weighs in at just 320 gr, the lightest in its class, and delivers a top speed of up to 55 kmph and a range of 4 km, all without compromising on its flight time (25 minutes) or features (autopilot, smart image capture, shape recognition and tracking, etc.).

ANAFI can be pre-ordered from today and will be available from July 1 from Parrot.com and Amazon, as well as select retailers in France (Fnac-Darty, Boulanger), North America (BestBuy), the UK (Dixons Carphone), Germany (MediaMarkt Saturn), and gradually the rest of the world, at a price of €699, $699 or £629.

ANAFI: unrivalled image quality, zoom and ultra-mobile gimbal

ANAFI is the only drone on the market to offer 4K HDR video capabilities.

While successfully meeting the challenge of image quality, Parrot has taken a major technological step forward. To both open up access to drones for beginners and meet the needs of enthusiasts and professionals, ANAFI uses the best software and hardware solutions available today.

Its specially developed camera and latest-generation Sony sensor make it possible to create spectacular 4K HDR videos (30fps) and 21MP photos with detailed image quality. It benefits from a wide-angle lens (110°) and two aspherical lenses designed to limit stray light and chromatic aberrations, combined with HDR technology. ANAFI enhances the rendering of backdrop scenes, offers incredible detail and optimizes the balance between light and shadow, ideal for filming bright skies or sunsets anywhere in the world (temperatures from -10°C to +40°C).

With FreeFlight 6, its dedicated mobile app, ANAFI meets expert needs with a choice of three video modes: 4K Cinema (24 fps), 4K UHD (24, 25, 30 fps) and 1080p (24, 25, 30, 48, 50 or 60 fps).

ANAFI's camera is mounted on a 3-axis stabilized gimbal that combines the best mechanical and digital stabilization capabilities. Lightweight and extremely powerful, it makes it possible to take photos and videos that were previously impossible to achieve with a drone from this class, thanks in particular to a vertical tilt of -90° to +90° and a -40° to +40° horizontal tilt to ensure horizon stabilization. In addition to these mechanical features, Parrot's digital stabilization expertise (+5° to -5° EIS) enables the drone to deliver impeccable travelling, even at high speeds. This unique system limits the angular vibration to 0.004° for super stable photos and videos.

ANAFI includes a lossless zoom feature, with 1.4x for 4K and 2.8x in full HD (1080p). It is also equipped with a 3x digital zoom feature thanks to the oversampling techniques developed by Parrot on ANAFI's 21MP sensor (5344x4016), which offers a resolution that is 1.4x higher than 4K (3840x2160) and 2.8x higher than 1080p (1920x1080). For users, a simple button on the Skycontroller3 makes it possible to zoom in from a distance and discover unsuspected details of a building, take close-ups of people or observe wild animals. The zoom feature is enhanced with a unique effect that opens up the world of video production to everyone: the Dolly Zoom, enabling you to zoom in on a fixed subject while moving the background away.

ANAFI: light and powerful for exceptional ease-of-use

While ANAFI has unique photo and video capabilities for its class, its flight performance levels are unrivalled for a lightweight, compact drone and, thanks to its smart design, it is also the quietest drone in its class.

ANAFI has a range of up to 4 km in an open environment thanks to its smart, autonomous use of wifi channels, combined with omnidirectional protocols specially developed by Parrot. Each ANAFI foot is equipped with a dual-band antenna (2.4GHz and 5GHz) to optimize connections with the Parrot Skycontroller3 remote-control, whatever the drone's orientation.

ANAFI is able to achieve a best-in-class flight time of 25 minutes thanks to its polymer lithium battery designed to deliver the best power density in a small volume and a high rate of discharge. ANAFI's battery, which continuously monitors its charge level to be able to return to its take-off position, has an integrated charger, compatible with the latest universal, mobile USB standard (USB-C). It also adapts to the power source: it charges more quickly when it identifies a powerful charger and has a hibernation mode to protect its internal chemistry.

With ANAFI, drones are opening up to everyone thanks to the new FreeFlight6 app. Renowned for its high-quality, user-friendly software, Parrot has developed FreeFlight6, a modern, intuitive interface, specifically for ANAFI.

This app offers two manual control modes: Film and Sport. In sport mode, ANAFI achieves peak speeds of up to 55 kmph and can withstand winds of 50 kmph. Users can also customize a range of settings, from the drone's inclination and rotation speed to the speed of its camera tilt.

The interaction between the Skycontroller3 long-range remote control and the FreeFlight6 app makes it possible to control the gimbal and zoom with two dedicated ergonomic keys.

The flight interface adapts to all users: beginners have access to automatic control modes, such as SmartDronies or CineShots, while professionals can select or customize camera settings. Alongside this, the cameraman and FollowMe modes use a neural network to reevaluate the target track for each image, with a focus on the shape recognition tracking system, benefiting from a smart learning process that uses a database of images of people and vehicles.

With ANAFI, Parrot is once again driving a breakthrough in the drone world and redefining standards with a next-generation drone that is ultra-portable, equipped with a 4K HDR camera, super-efficient and easy to use. Parrot ANAFI is positioned to offer a better experience to customers, building up on a strengthened sales and marketing strategy, leveraging its digital marketing capabilities and partnering with key selected retailers worldwide. The Group has generated over €500 million in revenues on consumer drones since 2010, with average annual growth of 17%, and it intends to return to growth in 2018."

PR

November 15, 2016 – DJI, the world leader in unmanned aerial technology, Tuesday introduced two new drones that raise the bar for professional imaging: Inspire 2, the best ready-to-fly platform for high-end film and video creators, and Phantom 4 Pro, the smartest and most creative flying camera of its size.

“Professional filmmakers and photographers always push to create images that have never been seen before, and DJI never stops trying to give them the tools to achieve their vision,” said DJI CEO and Founder Frank Wang. “Our newest flight platforms and stabilized aerial cameras are smarter, faster and more powerful than ever before. We can’t wait to see how creators use Inspire 2 and Phantom 4 Pro to capture dazzling images.”

Professional Imaging

Phantom 4 Pro offers a powerful imaging system for professional photo and video creators as well as non-professionals who demand excellence from the camera and platform they use to pursue their creative visions. The camera now packs a 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor, and almost 12 stops of dynamic range bring out levels of detail and low-light performance unprecedented in a flying camera of this size. Its mechanical shutter eliminates rolling shutter distortion in fast-moving scenes. Phantom 4 Pro can capture slow-motion 4K video up to 60 fps at a maximum bitrate of 100 mbps. In addition, the Phantom 4 Pro offers H.265 video compression, which substantially improves video quality at the same bitrate.

Reliable with Enhanced FlightAutonomy System

Phantom 4 Pro builds on DJI’s original obstacle avoidance system with FlightAutonomy – three sets of visual systems that build a 3D map of obstacles in front, behind and below the aircraft, as well as infrared sensing systems on both sides. FlightAutonomy can position, navigate and plan routes for Phantom 4 Pro, enabling it to avoid obstacles in a sensing range up to 98 feet at front and rear, even in complex 3D environments. When returning to home and tapping to initiate auto takeoff or landing, the Landing Protection function is able to detect and help avoid landing on uneven ground or water. Phantom 4 Pro has high-performance battery technology that provides up to 30 minutes of flight time. The Phantom 4 Pro flies at 31 mph in P mode with obstacle avoidance in effect, and has a 45 mph top speed in sport mode.

Professional Control with New Remote Controller

Phantom 4 Pro’s revolutionary new compact remote controller comes with an optional high luminance display, providing a clear and vivid live HD view from the main camera as well as essential telemetry data, even in direct sunlight. The aircraft will automatically choose between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz once powering on to gain a clear signal in areas with high radio interference. The new controller has a built-in GPS, compass, Micro-SD card slot and HDMI port.

Intelligent Flight

New intelligent flight modes make Phantom 4 Pro the smartest flying camera of its size, opening new vistas for creators, such as the new Draw Mode that allows operators to draw lines on the controller display and direct the Phantom 4 Pro to fly that route.

ActiveTrack recognizes common subjects such as people and bikes, then follows them from any angle while maintaining camera focus, and includes three new modes – New Circle, Profile and Spotlight.

Narrow sensing enhances obstacle avoidance sensitivity so the aircraft can fly through complex environments like narrow doorways. TapFly now works backwards and comes with a new Free mode that allows a pilot to set the direction of flight, turn the Phantom 4 Pro or tilt the gimbal without changing the direction of flight. With the new AR Route feature, operators will be able to tell the flight route on the screen.

As an additional safety feature, within a minute of losing GPS signal, the aircraft will automatically return to the last connected position and hover there precisely to wait for the pilot’s command. With the enhanced return to home function, the aircraft knows where it should be going from up to 984 feet away and avoids obstacles along the route.

Price and Availability

Phantom 4 Pro’s U.S. retail price is $1,499 with a standard controller. The Phantom 4 Pro, which includes a Phantom 4 Pro aircraft, and a high luminance display remote controller, will be available at $1,799. Phantom 4 Pro and Phantom 4 Pro are immediately available for pre-order at dji.com/phantom-4-pro and DJI flagship stores in Shenzhen, Seoul and Hong Kong. These products will begin shipping one week after launch.

DJI Osmo Mobile 2 http://webmail.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/18672/dji-osmo-mobile-2 Sun, 07 Jan 2018 10:30:10 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 18672@/talks/discussions image

January 7, 2018 – DJI, the world’s leader in creative camera technology, introduced two new handheld camera stabilizers at CES 2018 – Osmo Mobile 2 and Ronin-S. Built for smartphones, DSLRs, and mirrorless camera systems, they give consumers, professional videographers and photographers new tools to capture smooth, steady videos and stunning photos wherever they go.

Osmo Mobile 2: The handheld smartphone camera stabilizer from DJI, redesigned for the storyteller in all of us. Using a lightweight design that supports portrait orientation, with simpler controls with cinematic zoom, a longer battery life for more filming, and intelligent features to help you share a professional-looking story wherever you go.

“With the introduction of these two stabilizers, DJI now offers gimbal technology to help unlock the creative storyteller in everyone no matter what camera they’re using,” said Paul Pan, Senior Product Manager at DJI. “Osmo Mobile 2 offers the best in smartphone stabilization at an affordable price, and Ronin-S brings the quality of DJI’s professional gimbal technology to a new form factor that is perfect for run-and-gun filming using your favorite DSLR or mirrorless camera system.”

Osmo Mobile 2 – Redesigned for the Storyteller in All of Us

Osmo Mobile 2 is a smartphone camera stabilizer that captures smooth videos and high-definition panoramas with cinematic movement and incredible ease. DJI’s industry-leading three-axis gimbal technology cancels out movement in three directions so your video stays steady even if your hands shake or wobble, while DJI’s built in SmoothTrack technology detects and compensates for your movement of the camera to ensure a smooth cinematic shot every time.

Designed to be lightweight and portable, Osmo Mobile 2 is made from high-strength modified nylon and features a folding design that makes it perfect for all-day use. The two-way mobile clamp lets you easily pivot between landscape and portrait orientation so that you can chose the most engaging full-screen format for your audience. In addition, a 1/4” universal screw mount ensures compatibility with your favorite photography accessories, making Osmo Mobile 2 more versatile than ever.

Simpler controls let you use your phone’s camera like a professional camera with integrated settings for ISO, shutter speed and more. A new zoom slider lets you completely operate your smartphone camera from the handle and you can even produce dolly zoom, a visual effect usually created only on professional film sets.

A more powerful built-in battery system lets you film for up to 15 hours, over three times longer than the original Osmo Mobile’s battery. The new USB port enables phone charging during use and serves as a power bank for charging other electronics while on the go.

Smart software in the DJI GO mobile app unlocks intelligent photo and video features that help you create professional-looking content automatically. Videographers can use modes including ActiveTrack to automatically follow of subjects in motion, Motion Timelapse with up to five different camera positions, Hyperlapse to create dramatic time-lapse videos with the camera in motion, or stream live to popular social platforms like Facebook and YouTube. Photographers can expand their creativity with options such as Panorama, Long Exposure and LightTrail modes.

Price and Availability

Osmo Mobile 2 retails for $129 USD and will be available exclusively for pre-order at Apple.com on January 23, 2018. Starting in early February, it will also be available at store.dji.com, DJI Flagship Stores, and DJI Authorized Retailers, with additional availability later in February at Apple Stores in select regions worldwide.

AirSelfie2 Flying Camera http://webmail.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/18716/airselfie2-flying-camera Wed, 10 Jan 2018 15:24:40 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 18716@/talks/discussions image

Aerial photography has been transformed once again with today's announcement of the AirSelfie2, the next generation of the revolutionary, pocket-sized flying camera. The device will feature an enhanced camera, longer battery life and greater memory as well as an upgraded smartphone app, making for the best photo and video experience in its class.

The AirSelfie2 takes all the groundbreaking features of the original AirSelfie and turbocharges them. It will offer a 12-megapixel camera for full HD photo and video, an 85° field of view and a battery life that runs up to 50 percent longer than the original. The AirSelfie2, which will be available for purchase in March 2018, comes in four colors - silver, black, gold and rose gold.

“The AirSelfie2 is truly revolutionary when it comes to flying cameras. When you’re looking to capture life’s important moments, dramatic scenery or large group shots, you want a combination of best-in-class technology and ease of use. The AirSelfie2 delivers precisely that,” said Stefano Cabella, CEO of AirSelfie.

Like its predecessor, the AirSelfie2 is small enough to fit in your pocket, coming in at 3.72” x 2.71” x 0.45”. And it weighs just over two ounces, so you’ll barely notice it’s there. It features anodized aluminum casing, so it’s durable enough to withstand modern life. And with four turbo fans flying it, the AirSelfie2 can travel more than 60 feet from home base. That, combined with a vibration absorption system, ensures users can take great pictures or video from every angle.

The AirSelfie2 also features a 16GB memory - allowing for thousands of pictures or video clips. It connects wirelessly to most with iOS and Android devices, meaning you can upload shots to social media or share them in seconds. And the 85° field of view on the AirSelfie2 means no special lenses or attachments to get the best shot possible.

The AirSelfie2 includes a flying camera, a powerbank for anywhere/anytime recharging, a USB cable for connecting to a computer and a protective bumper. AirSelfie2 will be through airselfiecamera.com and select retailers for $299.95.

For those at CES, come by and test out the AirSelfie at LVCC South Hall, Lower Level, #26030.
