Purpose Built Aerial Mapping Camera

Aerial mapping and surveying is a growing industry for drones due to their operations being safer and cheaper than manned helicopters or airplanes. Foxtech has a great camera that is purpose built for aerial mapping from drones. The Map-01 has an APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor that captures images at 24.3MP. It can shoot 6 frames per second with autofocus tracking at an ISO up to 25600.

To work properly for aerial mapping on small unmanned aircraft systems, the camera needs to be light so they made the body from carbon fiber and it weighs just 155g without a lens. It's also small in size for easier mounting. Another really nice feature is that it has interchangeable lenses from a 35mm down to a 16mm. Oh and you can connect the camera to PPK and RTK systems for amazing accuracy too. They also have a setup where you can connect 3 or 5 cameras together to capture oblique images. This camera is not for hobbyists though, it's all work and comes at a price. You can snag one for $880 on pre-order with expected deliveries slated for mid May.
