The good folks over at Sony are taking to the friendly skies. If you haven’t heard, the electronics giant is getting into the drone business. The company showed off the first look at its new Airpeak drone at CES 2021. The design is said to be the smallest drone capable of carrying an Alpha camera, created for video content creation and professional photography.
As for now, there are very few details about the new drone systems, though Sony is said to be exploring the use of the drones to film landscape and city shots. Sony showcased the Airpeak working as a chase camera. The model showcased at CES 2021 is a quadcopter design with two landing gear extensions that retract during flight.
This isn’t the first time Sony has experimented with drones. In fact, DJI already offers camera mounts for Sony Alpha products. Sony has plans for a Spring 2021 release window, though nothing official has been noted just yet.
