3D Robotics SOLO Quadcopter with 3-Axis Gimbal
The world’s smartest drone is also the easiest to fly. With features like pushbutton flight and computer-assisted Smart Shots, Solo makes it easy for anyone to get professional aerial photos and video. Solo is powered by two 1 GHz computers for the best and smoothest aerial photography experience imaginable, including many world-first technologies and a host of built-in safety and support features. And it’s the only all-in-one drone to offer live video streaming in vivid HD from your GoPro® directly to your mobile device—at ranges up to half a mile.
WHY A GoPro DRONE VS. BUILT-IN CAMERA?
Besides the standard and obvious multi-use advantages, versatility and overall superior quality of the camera itself, the GoPro that is used with the Solo has several fields of view (FOVs) to choose from, each emulating the look of a different lens focal length. At Medium or Narrow field of view, the footage minimizes most or all of the fisheye curve. Any unwanted curve in the footage can instantly be removed in post with the included GoPro software. In addition to that, there are several aftermarket lens add-ons that can be used with the GoPro, adding increased functionality, including a rectilinear lens, if that is the look you’d like to shoot with. In comparison, the Phantom 3 uses a rectilinear lens which is designed to inherently remove the fish eye effect. This lens however, is not free from distortion. As the camera pans, or objects move through the frame, an unwanted exaggerated transformation of shapes occurs. For example, as a car drives through the frame, at the edges of the frame, it appears as a stretch limo, as it nears the center, it squeezes into the shape of a smart car, and then back into a limo again as it nears the other side of the frame. This can be seen if filming a sectional fence head on. While the human eye sees that the fence is composed of sections of equal lengths, the image on the screen would appear that there are much larger gaps in the fence sections towards the edges of frame.
