DroneRise – Drones create jobs, the DJI Ronin S gimbal and the Australian launch video of the Mavic Air

Good morning, Here are yesterday’s headlines with a very positive outlook from the PwC accountants on the impact drone may have on the UK economy as well as DJI’s release of the Ronin S. Priced at $699 USD we think this is a very attractive gimbal and especially the fact the the LCD screen of your camera remains unobstructed when mounted on the Ronin S is a big plus. Furthermore we have a video that was used during the launch of the DJI Mavic Air in Australia. Enjoy!

Yesterday’s headlines

Today’s video

Today’s video is one that was used during the introduction of the DJI Mavic Air in Australia earlier this year. The video was produced by Itchban and here is what he had to say about it:

“I had the privilege of testing the new DJI Mavic Air drone two weeks before it’s release. I created this video for DJI for the Australian launch as I was their guest speaker. The following is footage from the Mavic Air (0:22s onwards). Footage down res’d to 1080p. Originally shot in: 4K 24fps (100Mbps) and 2.7k 60fps (Slow Motion scenes). As you can see the quality is extremely impressive from such a tiny drone. The footage is lightly colour graded.”

If you have a drone film that you would like to show on DroneDJ, send us an email with a link to your video on YouTube or Vimeo and provide us some background info.
