Denmark: Medium format aerial digital photography equipment manufacturer Phase One Industrial has released the iXU-R camera series. Designed to cater the aerial data acquisition market, these cameras come in 80 MP, 60MP and 60MP achromatic versions with an option to interchange lenses. The cameras are compact enough to be integrated into a small gimbal or pod space. The iXU-R cameras can also be linked to a GPS system to write data directly to the image files. According to Dov Kalinski, who is the General Manager of Phase One Industrial, the company realises that in a drone or a small aircraft, every gram in the payload counts. This is why Phase One is focusing on offering small and lightweight cameras without sacrificing data accuracy, image quality and resolution.
