Sony is entering the drone business, and the company showed brief information on its new Airpeak drone at CES 2021. Allegedly, this new drone is the smallest drone capable of carrying an Alpha camera, specifically for video content creation and professional photography.
At present, there are few specific details about the new drone system, although Sony said it is exploring the use of drones to shoot landscapes and urban scenery. It showed Airpeak as a lens to catch up with the camera to record the lens of the Vision-S concept car at CES last time. The model shown at CES 2021 is a quadrotor design with two landing gear extensions that retract upwards during flight (so as not to damage your lens).
Although Sony has never been involved in drones before, its camera is one of the best in the industry, so much so that market leader DJI has already provided a camera stand for Sony Alpha products. Sony’s idea of combining this expertise with customized drone-related products is undoubtedly an interesting idea.
Sony initially announced the Airpeak brand at the end of 2020 and plans to launch a “spring 2021” release window.
