Olympus plans to make the first “Lens-Camera-Drone” it’s basically a Micro Four Thirds mount module with integrated sensor where you can attach the rotor on top. There are no info yet if that idea will ever make it into a real mass product. But so far the specs of the module are mentioned by Olympus itself:
– Android ios
– 16 megapixel sensor. No info if it’s E-M1 (with PDAF) or E-M5 (without PDAF) alike.
– Connected by WiFi
– takes both stills and videos
– Optical / digital zoom, configurable for various shooting parameters
– Save Allowed still images in RAW or JPEG format
– Micro Four Thirds mount
This could become the smallest drone ever made? Not sure yet that thing can fly really well :) There are other parts that have to be added to make it fly properly!
