CINEMATIC MADE AUTOMATIC
3DR has created the one and only drone that can automatically control both copter and camera positioning in flight. The dual 1 GHz Linux companion computers power one-of-a-kind Smart Shots so anyone, beginner or pro, can get sweeping multi-axis cinematic live HD video from day one, just by pushing a button.
AERIAL MOTION CONTROL IN A BACKPACK
Your drone can go much further than just getting cool shots: It gives you the full Hollywood toolkit as software — an automatic crane, dolly, jib, boom, slider, tripod and, of course, helicopter. In a backpack. More Info »
HOW IT WORKS
It’s not just on or off, manual or autonomous. You can tailor Smart Shots in real time to work for you, using as much computer-powered flight or camera control as you need to bring your creative vision to life.
1. You Do It All – Fly and film like any consumer drone. Control the drone and the camera by yourself, using unique Solo features like preset angles and fine-grain tilt control.
2. Split the Work – You can choose to have your copter’s computer be a second operator, either a pilot or cameraman. Let Solo fly itself (locked on predetermined paths for consistent and safe flights) while you operate the camera, or fly yourself while the drone’s computer controls the camera for you, easing between keyframes or staying locked on a subject as you Orbit or Follow.
3. Drone Does It All – Quickly set up a shot exactly as your creative mind envisions it (position in space, how the camera pans and tilts, and speed of the shot) and let Solo execute it. Reveal subjects, orbit subjects or ease in and out of two keyframes.
No matter how much you’re letting your drone do, you can override it at any time, choosing to tweak, tune, shape and direct your shots for ultimate creative control.
