At the INTERGEO Digital event today, DJI has launched two new two payloads aimed at aerial surveying, the Zenmuse L1 and Zenmuse P1. The two new payload options expand DJI’s reach into the commercial surveying, mapping, and real-world models industry.
This morning we woke up to new drawings of the rumored DJI Inspire 3, as well as an expansion of the Zenmuse cameras with the X6, X7s, and X8. The Inspire 3 is expected to be introduced towards the end of this year and we assume that the cameras will be part of that same announcement. The DJI Inspire drone and cameras are aimed at the professional drone market with prices for the Inspire 2 starting out at $2,999, but that can easily reach $10,000 once you add a high-quality camera and lenses. The DJI Inspire Cinema Premium Combo package tops out at an eye-watering $20,179. We expect pricing to be in the same range (maybe even higher) for the upcoming Inspire 3.
A few days ago we took a good look at the latest teaser video from DJI and tried to distill what kind of product DJI is about to launch on 10/11/2017. It was obvious that it had to do with a high-quality, low-light lens. The question that remained open was whether it would be just a lens/camera or whether it would include a handheld gimbal or even a completely new kind of drone a la the GoPro Karma, where the handheld gimbal is integrated into the design. Well, it seems that the answer has been leaked in a video on the website Kanzhaji.com.
