On Thursday, the world’s biggest drone maker DJI launched the Inspire 3, a high-end professional cinema camera drone, in Shenzhen. Available by the end of June for RMB 79,888 ($16,499), the new model comes with a Zenmuse X9-8K Air camera, offering an 8K video recording and imaging system. The Inspire 3 updates the Chinese firm’s cinematic drone series, which first launched in late 2014 and was refreshed with the Inspire 2 in 2016, which offered a 5K camera. The new model features a 1/1.8-inch ultra-wide night-vision first-person-view (FPV) camera and a main camera equipped with a full-frame sensor. It can shoot 8K at 75 frames per second in Apple ProRes RAW and comes with changeable 1TB solid-state drives (SSDs) and intelligent batteries. The Inspire 3 has a maximum flight time of 28 minutes, five minutes longer than its predecessor. In addition, the Inspire 3 features a new design that supports 360° pan and tilt boost structures. According to a February report from CNBC, DJI currently accounts for 70% of the global drone market. [DJI]
