Danish camera maker Phase One Industrial has unveiled a new aerial camera that could help take drone photography to the next level.
The lightweight iXU 180 is the world’s smallest 80-megapixel medium format aerial camera, the company said in a statement. The camera can be integrated into small oblique systems that can fit inside a gyro mount, giving drone operators more flexibility for aerial photography.
The company’s last 80-megapixel camera, the IQ 180, has already produced stunningly detailed aerial footage. Here’s a look at a time-lapse video filmed with the iXU 180’s predecessor:
iXU 180 will begin shipping in mid-April. A Phase One spokesperson said the camera is priced at $60,000.
