Sony unveils its Airpeak drone, it can carry a full frame Alpha camera


Recommended Posts


Sony unveiled its first done, the Airpeak. It can carry a full frame Sony Alpha mirrorless camera and is in the smallest drone that can do so. It is “capable of dynamic filming and precise, stable flight”, though details are scarce beyond that.




The Airpeak drone has a front-facing camera and a distance sensor, which with the power of AI will (presumably) be used for target tracking and obstacle avoidance. Sony is really keeping its cards close to its vest, we don’t even have details on range and flight time yet.



You can check out this demonstration of the Airpeak. It was used to shoot a testdrive of the VISION-S, Sony’s concept car. If you want to see more of the car, you can watch this video. It uses no less than 40 sensors inside and outside the vehicle and aims for Level 2 autonomous driving (“hands-off”). Two 200 kW engines propel the car to 100 kph in 4.8 seconds.



Back to the drone, the Airpeak will launch in the Spring. It’s not clear how much it will cost, but it certainly won’t be cheap, as it's clearly aimed at professional users. You can keep an eye on this page for new developments.
