How the Phantom 2 Vision+ Changes Aerial Filmmaking
A lot of businesses can greatly benefit from aerial filmmaking, particularly real estate. But to get more than just fancy marketing material, an excellent camera must be used. Unfortunately, even the best camera in the world would produce less-than-stellar shots if it isn’t steady.
But, with the release of the Phantom 2 Vision+ from DJI, a global leader in Unmanned Aerial Systems and a Creative Technologies Company, any deficiencies of aerial photography are resolved. What makes the Phantom 2 Vision+ stand out?
It’s the first flying camera in the world that records stabilized HD video. So anyone who wants to take aerial shots, minus the blurry, grainy output would want to get their hands on this cool device. It has a built-in camera that captures at 1080p video at 30fps and 14 megapixels when taking pictures.[youtube height=”500″ width=”820″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptVJGrOpyok?rel=0[/youtube]
What keeps the camera stable is the gimbal, an electronic stabilizer that has 3 axes: pitch, roll and yaw. All of which ensures and keeps the camera steady under various wind conditions or flight speed. In fact, the Phantom 2 Vision+ will automatically stay in place even in winds of up to 40 kph because of its built-in GPS system. This enables a photographer to focus and get the right shot. It is also compatible with the Ground Station capabilities of DJI, where pilots can set a GPS path for the aerial camera to navigate autonomously.
According to Frank Wang, Chief Executive Officer of DJI, “We have been truly inspired by all the creative applications of our Phantom series so far – filmmaking, fire fighting, conservation and many others. By stabilizing the camera and making it easy to fly with minimal set up, we hope to inspire a new generation of aerial creators to take to the sky and capture their vision”.

What are the other features of the Phantom 2 Vision that revolutionize how aerial filming is done?
- It comes with a Return-to-Home feature that is triggered when the aerial camera exceeds the control range. This will then bring the camera back to its take-off point and then safely land. It has 25-minute maximum flight time, enough to take as many pictures as possible or enough video footage.
- It has a tilt control that lets you tilt the camera while it’s on air, allowing you to capture an amazing video. Point it straight down, and you get an entirely different and breathtaking view of the world below.
- It has a high-performance camera with a 4GB micro SD card that shoots a full HD video at 1080p 20 and clean slow motion at 720p 60. The Phantom 2 Vision+ has settings for picture quality, exposure compensation, white balance and ISO.
- Using a Vision app for Android and iOS devices, the camera’s capture format can be adjusted. It’s also the same application that the pilots use to view what the camera sees in real time, because it displays key flight information such as distance and altitude, and control the device through the cam’s Wi-Fi network even when its 700 meters away. It is also through Wi-Fi that the camera sends photos and videos directly to your phone, which helps with easy album synchronization. No need to use a computer, which makes the aerial camera easier to use than ever.
With all these features, there’s little doubt that the Phantom 2 Vision+ is a cut above the rest. And, with the entire Phantom series being shipped with a firmware upgrade that is the first of its kind, it will be easier for pilots to follow international best flying practices, allowing them to set distance limitations and height according to the local regulations. It also helps them avoid flying close to airports.
