DxOMark benchmarks for popular drone camera sensors

DxOMark benchmarks for popular drone camera sensors

As drone photography has increased in popularity, manufacturers have responded by creating a wide variety of offerings aimed to satisfy the demand. To help sort through available drones, we have evaluated the quality of photographs produced by some of the most popular. At the top of our list is DJI’s Zenmuse X5 S, with an overall score of 74, noticeably ahead of its predecessor the Zenmuse X4 S, which is tied with DJI’s Phantom 4 Pro at 65. The smaller-sensor Phantom 4 comes in at 48. That puts it ahead of both GoPro’s HERO5 Black, used in the Karma drone and scoring 38, and the inexpensive YUNEEC Breeze 4K, that scores only 35.

Since DxOMark sensor scores strongly depends on sensor noise and dynamic range, both of which are strongly influenced by sensor size, it is not surprising that larger sensors scored higher than smaller ones. This said, we found interesting differences even between drone cameras with similarly-sized sensors. And for reference, we also provide some comparisons with standalone cameras with similar-sized sensors.

Sentera Responds to Market Demand Adding TrueNDVI™ to DJI Mavic Drone

Offering growers even more advanced crop scouting solutions

Sentera today announced its ability to convert a DJI Mavic™ drone into a precision scouting tool that collects TrueNDVI™ crop health data. The ultra-lightweight, super-precise Sentera NDVI Single Sensor is integrated onto the pocket-sized Mavic drone, featuring one of DJI’s most sophisticated flying cameras ever. In a single flight, visual-band RGB, near-infrared (NIR) and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data is simultaneously captured, and then interpreted in the field to quickly detect problem areas and respond with action. The small yet powerful Mavic drone with NDVI Upgrade ensures precision while saving time. Continue reading

A recent study published in January 2017 by The MITRE Corporation’s Center for Advanced Aviation System Development (CAASD) imagined a future world of very high traffic densities of drones operating with ADS-B onboard, and then sought to understand the implications of that.  The study suggests that there is a nominal transmission power output between 0.01 and 0.1 Watts that when coupled with limited drone traffic densities can result in a compatible operation with the system as a whole.
