Canon is committed to the development of consumer-grade drones. This product may be on the market within three years. There are already patents for drones.
This drone patent was filed by Canon’s Japanese Marketing Department in August 2019. It will be equipped with a safe landing function and Canon’s newly developed air traffic automatic control system. Currently known information is still very limited. .
As early as 2017, Canon announced the launch of the industrial drone PD6E2000-AW-CJ1, but there is little follow-up information and it may still be in development. It is said that this industrial drone uses the ME20F-SH high-sensitivity camera with a sensitivity of up to ISO 4560 000 and the price is around US$20,000.
It can be seen that Canon has always had the idea of entering the UAV industry, and the UAV field is still monopolized by DJI. Therefore, there has always been a saying that DJI’s opponent in the field of drones is itself. Canon’s development and launch of this consumer-grade drone, and then using its advantages in lens and image processing, may change this. pattern.
