Sony has launched an entirely new division called Airpeak. Airpeak have produced a large drone that can carry an Alpha sized camera. They claim that this is the smallest drone capable of carrying an Alpha sized camera. It’s unknown at this time whether the Airpeak division will purely focus on larger drones capable of carrying non integrated cameras or whether they will also produce smaller drones with integral cameras. It would certainly make sense to leverage Sony’s sensor expertise by creating dedicated cameras for drones and then drones to carry those cameras.

Alphabet Inc’s Drone Division Argues FAA’s New Rules Hurt Privacy


This post is by Jaron Schneider from PetaPixel

Right at the end of 2020, the United States Federal Aviation Administration published what it called its “final” drone rules for commercial flights. Drone delivery company Wing has since come out sharply opposed to the new rules as harmful to privacy.

Wing is a subsidiary of Alphabet – the same parent company of tech giant Google – who focuses on building small, lightweight aircraft and navigation systems designed to ferry small packages directly to homes quickly. Wing was founded in 2012 and has said that it has conducted more than 100,000 flights across three continents in an effort to prove

Photographer Reuben Wu has made a name for himself by pioneering the use of drones in illuminating landscape photos. For his latest project Light Storm, Wu’s goal was to capture often-seen landscapes in a way people have never seen before.

“The project is about presenting familiar sights in a new and unfamiliar light, renewing your sense of seeing and the experience of discovery,” Wu tells Colossal.

The Chicago-based photographer visited iconic rocky landscapes found in Utah and New Mexico and used carefully-flown drones to add artificial lighting to the scene. In some of his photos, drones were used to
