There has been a press conference by DJI in Las Vegas. First off, lets lay it out there… SPOILER: No new drones announced.
The first 30 minutes of the conference was about the new handheld camera-gimbal Ronin 2
If you are interested in the Ronin 2 you can click the link below for a full list of features, if you came because of items for pilots you can skip this link.
The first announced accessory is the new controller DJI Cendence compatible with the Matrice 200 and Inspire 2.
Described as an ergonomic controller for professionals with the need for efficiency and personalisation.
It is equipped with customizable buttons which allow you to program and store button configurations for different flight and shooting options, it also has buttons for easy access to settings like ISO and Shutter speed. With the integrated ultra-bright display the removable battery lasts for four hours.
The integrated HD video ports enable you to share videos in real time live streams.
DJI Cendence will be available this year and the price will start at $999.
The DJI Tracktenna is not only able to boost the signal up to 6.2 mile range, the signal strength up to 10Mbps (at 1000 meters) and prevent signal interferences, it has also built in sensors and a 2-axis gimbal which adjusts the position of the antenna to the position of your drone.You can switch between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency.
With the new released and already available Crystalsky DJI now offers a monitor with optimal characteristics for drone pilots. The CrystalSky monitor features an ultra-bright screen that is clearly visible in sunlight.
A maximum 2000 cd/m² of brightness means the CrystalSky monitor is more than four times as bright as typical mobile devices. It also has two SD Card slots, an external battery with enough power for 4-5 hours, 4K HDMI Output, USB-A, Micro USB, USB Type-C and a Headphone output. The Cristalsky Monitor is also optimized for extreme temperature low as -4°F (-20°C) and up to 104°F (40°C)
