4K Drones — Astounding Terrain Images and More

Posted May 31, 2015 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Wondering about applications for 4K resolution? How about capturing gorgeous panoramic landscape images from spots you couldn't otherwise reach without a helicopter? For about the price of a decent quality DSLR camera, this 4K drone shoots at either 24 or 30 fps, and records 1080p video at a rate of 24, 30, or 60 fps. Command the drone using the included controller. Mount your favorite mobile device with a special app installed for a real-time video feed, integrated maps, and more. The autopilot mode even lets you enjoy the scenery without the work.

Drones have become an illegal, intrusive, invasion of personal privacy, and quiet spaces such as parks and entertainment venues.

The thoughtless operation of these devices by irresponsible operators borders on criminal, and in many cases is!

The thoughtless jerks who fly them over private property to spy on people's activities makes them an abuse of modern technology.

My position may seem radical, but just wait until one flies over your back yard and photographs you and your family during a private moment.

Or interrupts a sporting event or a performance you paid to see.

Or, flies into your face.

Well then there is a market for anti-drone drones (ADD's - there's a nice "ring" to that) capable of bringing one down. Or PSEZ's (Private Space Exclusion Zones) set up around one abode.

Let urban warfare begin!

It is not the ones we can see that concern me,they can be readily handled by any

capable duck hunter.

A greater concern is the high flying giga-pixel government built ones that you never

see or detect.,that are able to zoom into a car's vin number from 10 miles up.

These do indeed have their valid purpose,but has any government ever acted

responsibly?, or the "free" press?

Once a society becomes accustomed to less and less personal privacy, reasonable

expectations of privacy will dwindle and disappear.

The new generations think nothing of putting their entire lives on display on social

websites,and old standards of privacy will simply dwindle away and disappear.

Makes inspecting works or structures at height very safe.

Like everything Lyn..in controlled responsible, moderation...unless it's fun then go crazy.
