Unveiled: Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter with Gimbal-Stabilized 14MP, Full HD Camera

Share

From the NAB show floor, DJI announced the latest addition to its extremely popular Phantom quadcopter line: the Phantom 2 Vision+. What's new and exciting about the Phantom 2 Vision+? Most notably, the camera. It features a gimbal-stabilized, 14-megapixel camera that shoots Adobe DNG RAW and is capable of recording 1080p video at 30 frames per second, as well as 720p at 60 frames per second to help you produce sharp, clean, slow-motion footage. The 3-axis gimbal not only helps isolate the camera from aircraft sway and vibration, it also allows you to tilt the camera in flight to give you greater flexibility and increase the dynamism and potential of your shots.

The Phantom 2 Vision+ is based on the same proven airframe as the Phantom 2 Vision and Phantom 2. Like the rest of the Phantom family, it comes ready to fly (RTF), meaning that a pre-bound transmitter (handheld radio controller) is included and that it ships almost fully assembled. The flight-control system uses sophisticated software developed by DJI and relies heavily on GPS tracking to provide a number of useful features. Perhaps the most notable is the GPS attitude flight mode. Not only does it provide the most auto-pilot redundancy of any flight mode, ensuring a stable flying condition even if the pilot makes a mistake, but GPS attitude mode really shines when shooting video. By keeping precise track of the Phantom's X/Y coordinates in space, GPS attitude mode allows the quadcopter to maintain a fixed hover, even when subject to light or moderate amounts of wind. GPS also allows the quadcopter to return to home. In case the transmitter signal is ever lost more than momentarily, the aircraft will automatically fly back to a home automatically established during the initial pre-flight calibration routine.

"A Wi-Fi extender is included that mounts next to the smartphone, extending your mobile device's Wi-Fi range up to 2,300 feet (700 meters) in your line of sight."

The camera system is controlled by a DJI app, currently available for iOS and Android. There is even a smartphone mount included that allows you to attach your smartphone or other small, Wi-Fi-enabled mobile device directly to the handheld radio controller (transmitter). A Wi-Fi extender is included that mounts next to the smartphone, extending your mobile device's Wi-Fi range up to 2,300 feet (700 meters) in your line of sight. Not only can you actuate Record start and stop and snap photos from the app, which all get recorded to a microSD card in the camera, you can also use your phone to upload images to social media websites almost as soon as they happen.

Also worth a mention, included with the Phantom 2 Vision+ and available as a firmware update for all Phantom 2 models, is a new software feature dubbed "no-fly zones." These are no-go areas that are programmed into the flight controller. These no-fly zones, typically at sites surrounding airports, provide an automated way to avoid accidentally flying into an area that might be unsafe and/or restricted. The zones are categorized A and B, and are currently provided for major cities worldwide. Expect that the no-fly zone list will be updated on a continual basis.

The Phantom 2 Vision+ can fly for up to 25 minutes on one battery. It features the same slot-in design as the other Phantom 2 models, allowing the batteries to be quickly swapped out in the field without tangled cables to worry about. There is a car charger, available separately, for the Phantom 2 Batteries so you won't be dependent on AC. If you know you'll need more than 25 minutes out of the box, there is even a kit available with a second battery included.

No remote monitor to view whats is been recorded? I will buy this till that option comes out

The Vision+ (just like it's predecessor) offers the ability to monitor and have some control over the quadcopter via an Android or iOS app that you can download to a smartphone or tablet.

Olá, preciso de um Phanton 2 + Gimbal ( a camera go pro heros 3 eu ja tenho) e um transmissor para transmitir o sinal de video HD da camera para meu controle onde consigo monitorar o voo e uma saida hdmi para conectar em uma mesa de corte para mandar o sinal da go pro em voo  ao vivo para os telões em um evento em HD. Voces teriam esse transmissor? qual o Valor? me envia opçoes de custo x alcance.

Me informaram que a DJI  lançou um transmissor HD a custo acessivel.

Não pode ser algo muito caro, tem que ter um custo x beneficio bom, acho que um alcance de uns 200 metros pra cobrir a area de um show ao vivo com uma boa imagem.

Por favor me ajudem

No aguardo

Nós vendemos esse transmissor que funciona para voce poder monitorar o video gravado na GoPro a distância com a Phantom 2. Ele não funciona em HD e não é feito para esse tipo de uso do qual voce fala. Aparece bastante interferencia no monitor quando o Phantom 2 esta voando e tem perda bastante de qualidade. Ele é feito apenas para monitorar mesmo o video. Aqui esta o link do transmissor:
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/998680-REG/dji_cp_al_000001_5_8gzhz_video_kit.html

Nós não temos nenhuma opção em HD como do tipo que voce tem interesse.

*****  i would like to know the range of work and the price ,also if there are in stock.

bless you

The transmitter features a line-of-sight range of up to 2625', depending on conditions. We are expecting the Vision+ to be available this summer. You can see pricing and details at the link below:

Hi ******,

Please contact us via e-mail if you have additional questions:  AskBH@BandH.com

First, I want to note that the "kit available", refering to the second battery above, is a non working link.  FYI.

This sounds like a very intriguing combination.  I am somewhat familiar with the flying platform so I am not too concerned about its capabilities.

The camera, however is an entirely different story.  I would very much like to know what the equivalent focal length is or at least an angle of view.  The Heros, for example, commonly used for this sort of thing are FAR too wide a view.  Any info on that?

I would VERY MUCH like to see some sample (still) full size image files.  What are the chances of DJI or someone else providing a few of these.

Investing in this equipment without more solid knowledge about the cameras capabilities would be foolish so I hope more info is forth- coming.

Thanks very much.

The GoPro Hero 3+ provides three selectable Field of Views at 118, 94, and 64 degrees. In comparison, the Vision+ camera has a Field Of View selectable between 100 and 85 degrees.

Guess I should have dug into the specs on the product a bit.  The lens has two positions, 100 and 85 degrees FOV angle.  85 is approximately equivalent to 24mm in the 35mm world.  That is much better than the typical Hero camera.  That is encouraging, assuming that the specs are based on optics and not digital zoom.

Now, lets see some image files!
 

How can this be.

send me the d's please
