A maximum 2000 cd/m≤ of brightness means the CrystalSky monitor is more than four times as bright as typical mobile devices. On-screen details are clear and sharp, and colors are vibrant, giving the quality needed to fine tune image composition. A dedicated Sunlight Readability Enhancement mode is especially designed for processing the image in real-time to ensure more comfortable viewing under bright light.

* 7.85 Ultra Bright 2000 cd/m≤

Resolution: QXGA 2048x1536 (7.85Ē)

The CrystalSky monitor uses optimized video decoding to decode video in real-time. Due to limitations in software access on smartphones and tablets, video decoding in other smart devices is less than ideal. When used to view photos or videos transmitted by the camera, problems can occur including video jitter, long latency and more. The CrystalSky monitorís optimized decoder provides smooth, real-time video with minimal latency.

A newly designed system removes unnecessary Android apps and services and is resistant to viruses and junk software. This ensures that the CrystalSky monitor is able to offer optimum performance at all times. Its embedded DJI GO/DJI GO 4 app provides full access to all DJI GO/DJI GO 4 features including aircraft parameter adjustment, camera control, footage management, and playback. Using offline maps, maps can be kept available even if going out of Wi-Fi reach.

DJI Cendence

Posted by blade strike | Apr 30, 2017 @ 02:31 PM | 8,734 Views
DJI Cendence

Provides up to five analog control channels and over ten customizable buttons, improving overall control efficiency.
Cendence's design offers antenna interchangeability. A high-gain antenna, or DJIís Tracktenna, can augment the power of DJI Lightbridge technology, significantly increasing overall anti-interference and image quality.
HDMI, SDI, USB, and CAN ports provide robust expansion capabilities.
Cendence comes with the fully integrated Cendence Monitor Mounting Bracket.

Dials, Levers, and Knobs

The two knobs on the front panel control gimbal pitch and yaw, and the right/left levers and Focus Adjustment Knob are used to tune flight controller settings and the gimbal camera in real-time, allowing you to pull focus and set aperture.

Camera Settings

For quick camera adjustments, you can customize several shortcut buttons for particular groups of settings, or save frequently used settings.

Custom Control

Customizable buttons can quickly enable or disable frequently used functions like focus peaking, color waveform, obstacle avoidance, and home point resetting, or close warnings and tips midflight, all without using an app.

Button Combinations

Rotate the dials or the toggle the right/left levers while holding certain buttons to control gimbal roll, shutter speed, aperture, or ISO.

Detachable Design, CrystalSky Compatibility

Really like the detail on the x5

I just got the new GPC travel mode case from MCW ( ) Just like most of GPC cases, It's top notch !! They did really well with utilizing space. For example each RC location also holds charging hubs. Under the camera is where another set of batteries is placed .. It has space for two tablets, 2 iPad airs are shown.

I really wish it held more batteries though.. 4 sets just don't seem enough and I do see people probably wanting more . But then they would probably just get a secondary case just for packs!

Overall really happy with it and should serve me well, just like their other cases have!...Continue Reading

DJI is preparing some model files for precise Lens distortion correction for ProRes, until then I would like to provide a workflow for two common tools.

Adobe Premiere
In Premiere, the suggested way to do predefined lens correction is through Effect Preset file. The file we supplied for Inspire 1 is embedded in Premiere 2017

The preset file hooks Premiereís built in effect Lens Distortion, assign its values for Inspire 2 movie clips to start with. User should add that effect manually

DaVinci Resolve 12.5+
A new lens correction feature was added. Itís in Edit->Inspector. See screenshot below. It has only one parameter named distortion, works much like Curvature in PRís lens distortion effect. Bad thing currently is thereís no good way input or see what the preset value in DaVinci Resolve would be. Positive is DaVinci can calculate this value automatically with analysis. Works great if image contains some straight lines.

The Inspire 1 was a revelation. The first filmmaking drone in the world to integrate an HD video transmission system, 360į rotating gimbal and a 4K camera, as well as the simplicity of app control. The launches of the Zenmuse X5 and X5R cameras further cemented the Inspire as a critical tool for filmmakers around the globe.

The Inspire 2 takes everything that was good about the Inspire 1 and improves it. An all-new image processing system records at up to 5.2K in CinemaDNG RAW, Apple ProRes and more. It goes from 0 to 50mph (80kph) in just 5 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 58mph (94kph) and has a max descent speed of 9m/s for unheard of speed and agility in an aircraft this size. A dual battery system prolongs the flight time to a maximum of 27 minutes (with an X4S),while self-heating technology allows it to fly even in low temperatures. FlightAutonomy has been revised and developed specifically for the Inspire 2,providing two directions of obstacle avoidance and sensor redundancy. Increased intelligence adds multiple intelligent flight modes, including Spotlight Pro, giving even single pilots the ability to create complex, dramatic shots. An upgraded video transmission system is now capable of dual signal frequency and dual channel, streaming video from an onboard FPV camera and the main camera simultaneously, for better pilot and camera operator collaboration....Continue Reading

The Matrice 600 Pro (M600 Pro) inherits everything from the M600 with improved flight performance and better loading capacity.Pre-installed arms and antennas reduce time required for setup, and the systemís modular design makes it easy to mount additional modules.

The airframe is equipped with the latest DJI technologies, including the A3 Pro flight controller, Lightbridge 2 HD transmission system, Intelligent Batteries and Battery Management system. All Zenmuse cameras and gimbals are natively compatible and full integration with third party software and hardware make the M600 Pro ideal for professional aerial photography and industrial applications....Continue Reading

Since there has been some issue with some users slave transmitters being reset I decided to try to replicate it. I think I found what is going on. Please try the following and see if it helps.

Set the slave as master, go to RC configuration and then set to an opposite mode. So if it's set to mode 2 set it to mode 1, hit apply. Then go back and reset it back to mode 2 or whatever mode you fly. Once that is done go ahead and put it back into slave mode.

Make sure on the MASTER coach mode is set to OFF, I have seen on some controllers this defaulting to ON. Now on the slave search for master, select it and enter password for the master. Once linked please request control or access on the SLAVE and agree to it on the MASTER. Now you should have all normal slave control. More than likely you will need to reconfigure your stick inputs to desired functions if a custom mapping was used.

How to link the remote via the combination buttons on the controller:
* Turn on both the aircraft and the controller.
* Press C1, C2, and the record button on the controller, then the controller will beep like D-DD.
*Let go of the buttons, the press the wheel on the right side of the controller. The first light of the controller will become blue and it will constantly beep DDDD.
* Use a small tool to press the linking button on the aircraft and hold for 3-5 seconds, release the linking button and wait, it will link in a few secnds.

How to link the remote on P3S:
Turn on RC, move the wheel to the very left and flip the S2 ​up and down three times and press the link button on the aircraft for 3-5 seconds.

How to reset WIFI on P3S?
Turn on the RC and move the wheel to the very right, switch S2 up and down for three times very quickly and turn off RC, and then turn RC back on again. The WIFI is then reset.
