Canon’s industrial-grade drone is impressive

Canon’s PD6E2000-AW-CJI is an industrial-grade drone that can house the company’s ME20F-SH, a powerful camera meant for search and rescue missions.

Though the six-rotor drone can be mistaken for other professional grade drones in the market, the PD6E2000-AW-CJI has an incredible ISO level of up to ISO 4 million. This makes the drone ideal for extremely dark environments especially if it has the ME20F-SH camera installed. Adding to that the drone is also weather-proof and its gimbal can lift up to 10 kg of equipment.

Costing at approximately US$20,000 (~RM88,740) without the ME20F-SH camera, which by itself costs approximately US$20,000 (~RM88,740) as well, it is not hard to see how this particular drone is well beyond the price any hobbyist is willing to pay.
