Sony field tests Airpeak on Iriomote Island, Okinawa.
While Airpeak can’t directly compete with the cheaper DJI Mavic or Autel EVO II series, the setup is more compared to the Inspire 2, Freefly Astro, and other high-end drones that allow filmmakers to customize the camera setup to their specifics Needs.
Sony says: “We have tested Airpeak in various on-site environments and in this issue we would like to publish video material from field tests on Iriomote Island in Okinawa. The footage was taken with the recently announced 35mm Alpha-E-Mount FE14mm F1.8GM lens. With the ultra wide angle lens we were able to capture the dynamic natural landscape of Iriomote Island. ”
The Airpeak development team is also looking professional staff in the US and Japan to provide feedback on the project. This is a smart move by Sony. The more feedback, the greater the chance Airpeak will succeed, and hopefully Sony will invest more in developing lower-priced prosumer drones via proxy.
