Apr 26, 2017 07:16 PM EDT

DJI and Hasselblad introduced 100-megapixel Frakendrone platform for extreme photography applications. Both the companies claim that it is the first 100-megapixel integrated aerial photography platform in the world. This monster drone is built by fusing the DJI's six-rotor M600 Pro Drone, Ronin-MX Gimbal, and Hasselblad H6D-100c camera.

According to News FastCompany, the monster drone is reported to be suitable for the aerial photography especially designed for professional photographers, landscape and fine art photographers, surveyors, mapmakers, industrial, commercial, and scientific applications. The combination of best products from both the companies in the drone is claimed to be the "World's first 100-megapixel integrated drone-imaging platform."

According to Digital Trends, DJI and Hasselblad have teamed up to set up this monster drone for the extreme and best photography applications. DJI is reported to have acquired a majority stake in Hasselblad and the duo has earlier collaborated for best products in the drone tech market. It is reported that it is not a new or first in the world, as the components that made up the drone can be purchased individually and can be combined to create the exact platform.

It is reported that the difference between the self-purchased individual components and the company prepared package is the cost. It is assumed that the monster drone is likely to be lower in cost compared to buying the components individually. However, neither of the two companies has announced a price for this amazing announced platform.

It is reported that cost of assembling individual components to make up the drone is $40,000, without a lens for the setup. The H6D-100c Hasselblad camera is reported to be $33,000, M600 Pro Drone is $5,000, and the Ronin-MX Gimbal is $1,600.

As per the press release noted in the report, the 100-megapixel drone platform is said to be the next era of aerial photography and will be released in the third quarter of 2017. Stay tuned for more updates.
