DJI and Hasselblad team up for a souped up photography drone

Back in 2015, DJI invested in a minority stake in the Swedish firm Hasselblad, which has resulted in the companies teaming up for a powerful new photography drone. The partnership has spawned the A5D-M600 bundle, featuring the best of what both companies have to offer.

The drone takes DJI's M600 platform as a base and implements Hasselblad's A5D aerial camera for an impressive device that can be used for some excellent imaging services. It comes packing an adapted 50mm f/3.5 lens preset at infinity focus that should make focusing while controlling the drone a breeze, making this type of drone a no-brainer for event coverage or whichever use you need it for when it comes to capturing footage from the sky.

The sensors, Hasselblad notes, are twice the size of those used in the best 35mm DSLR cameras on the market right now. If you're looking for a collaboration of the best of both worlds, the A5D-M600 drone is probably going to be your best bet.
