Back in 2020, Sony officially announced its entrance into the drone market. The official launch is getting closer, and Sony keeps building hype. The company took its Airpeak drone to field testing at Iriomote Island, Okinawa, Japan. The resulting landscape video is now published, so you can see how Sony’s upcoming drone performs.
Sony’s new Airpeak drone system, first announced in November 2020, sees some new developments coming out of CES 2021 as Sony unveils a first look at the new drone, teasing some of its features and benefits. Sony says that the goal of the Airpeak brand is to further develop today’s drone technology while kicking things up a notch for professional creators.
The initial offering, which Sony describes as “the first phase of this project”, will see Sony launch a new business targeted for professional photography and video production during spring of 2021 to go along with the first new drone. And, perhaps not surprisingly, the drone is designed to carry Sony’s Alpha mirrorless cameras.
I guess most of us have lost all hopes of attending any mass events in 2020. But the coronavirus pandemic is already affecting 2021, too. After trade shows scheduled for the current year, CES 2021 now becomes an online-only event as well.
