After launching the Phantom 3 Professional and Advanced models at NAB 2015, DJI has unveiled the new Phantom 3 Standard quadcopter, which features a built-in camera with 3-axis gimbal. It can capture up to 2.7K resolution video at 30fps and 12MP DNG and JPEG still images.
The Phantom 3 Standard’s remote controller is an updated version of the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ controller with an integrated WiFi range extender and wheel to angle the camera. The new drone includes Follow Me, Waypoint Navigation and Point of Interest features.
It also connects via WiFi your mobile device to view a live feed from the camera, access camera settings and enable waypoint navigation. The controller has a holder for your mobile device for easy viewing while flying.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIav0Qbw55g&w=700]
The spec list is solid in comparison to the rest of the competition, particularly when you consider the $799 retail price. The DJI Phantom 3 Standard ships later this month. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
