It's Almost Here: The DJI Inspire 1 Quadcopter

The DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter comes with its own camera

There’s been no denying the explosion in popularity of drone camera platforms in the past few years and this week DJI, the company at the forefront of the industry, took a giant leap forward when it revealed the new DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter.

At a special event on San Francisco’s Treasure Island, DJI announced the new flying camera system as the evolution of everything they’ve learned over their eight-year history of building Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, or UAVs. Their popular Phantom quadcopter system required you to attach your own camera or to attach a video transmitter to see a live stream from the camera. This time out, DJI is providing a completely integrated system right out of the box.

DT_09_17_2013

Explore Deke’s Techniques at lynda.com.

Aerial photography is an impressive way to capture a landscape, but you don’t need to hire a plane to get great photos. Deke is back this week in another episode of Deke’s Techniques that shows you how to get the equipment you need to capture great aerial photography and video (all for around $1,000), and then shows you how to merge the resulting frames together to create interesting effects in Photoshop. Learn how to set up a GoPro camera and an UAV (aka an unmanned aerial vehicle or drone), isolate an image from the resulting video in Photoshop, and use masking, Camera Raw filters, sharpening, and layer effects to make your scene really pop.
