DJI Matrice 600 Drone Preview & Flying Demonstration

DJI Matrice 600 Drone Preview & Flight Demonstration

DJI launched the Matrice 600 (M600) drone in April, but an actual working unit has been hard to come by. That’s not surprising since it is an expensive drone designed for professional aerial photography and industrial applications. Thanks to DSC World, we had the opportunity to check out an operational DJI Matrice 600, and even watch photographer Eddie Putera take it out for a spin!

Yes, that’s Miss World Malaysia 2010, Nadia Heng, with the DJI Matrice 600 drone. This demonstration unit was equipped with the Ronin-MX motorised gimbal mount, which supports cameras up to 4.5 kg (10 lb) in weight. At under 1 kg (2.2 lb), the Pentax K-3 II DSLR it’s carrying is considered “lightweight”.

 

The DJI Matrice 600 Preview

Before the DSC World event kicked off, we had the opportunity to get a close-up preview of the DJI Matrice 600 drone, with the Ronin-MX mount. Check them out up close!

The DJI Matrice 600 is a hexacopter drone that can carry a payload of up to 6 kg (13 lb). This allows you to mount the Ronin-MX gimbal and a range of camera from Micro Four Thirds systems to the RED Epic. With 6 intelligent batteries, it has a flight time of up to 32 minutes (depending on payload weight). It even has the capability to wirelessly stream HD video at distances of up to 5 km!

 

The DJI Matrice 600 Flight Demonstration

Veteran drone photographer Eddie Putra then took the DJI Matrice 600 out for a flight demonstration. You will also see the smaller DJI Inspire 1 V2.0 drone streaming a live feed of the Matrice 600 in flight. Unfortunately, the Ronin-MX gimbal was not charged, so Eddie couldn’t use it to take a picture of us!

Very impressive, isn’t it? All that capability comes with a hefty price tag though.

The DJI Matrice 600 costs US$4,600 while the Ronin-MX gimbal costs US$1,600. That US$6,200 price tag does not include accessories, and of course, the camera to actually take those awesome photos and videos! 😀

Eddie Putera Shares DJI Drone Photography Experience

On October 13, 2016, DSC World announced that they were appointed by DJI to import and distribute the entire range of DJI drone and photographic products. To celebrate the occasion, they invited Miss World Malaysia 2010, Nadia Heng, to emcee the event; and veteran photographer Eddie Putera, to share his DJI drone photography experience and tips with us. Check it out!

Later, Eddie would actually take out an operational DJI Matrice 600 out for a spin! Check it out here!

 

DSC World Is Now An Official DJI Distributor In Malaysia

DSC World Managing Director, Jeffrey Ng, kicked off the event with a short speech about DSC World and their appointment as an official DJI distributor in Malaysia.

DSC World will initially import and distribute the DJI Phantom 3, the DJI Phantom 4, the DJI Inspire 1 V2.0 and the DJI Matrice 600 drones. The recently announced DJI Mavic Pro drone is being shipped in, and should be available by the end of October, 2016.

They will also offer the DJI Osmo and Osmo Mobile stabilised camera systems. The DJI Osmo+ with zoom lens will come in later, sometime in November.

 

Eddie Putera’s DJI Drone Photography Experience

Eddie Putera is famous, not just for his photography, but also his frank opinions. He gladly shared his personal experience with drone photography, especially with the DJI drones he has been using for his professional work. This is a very engaging and enlightening talk.

Eddie has extensive experience of using drones in his videos, and he regularly conducts workshops on drone photography and videography techniques. So this is a must watch for drone photography hobbyists and professionals… or those who plan to be one!

Don’t forget to check out his flight demonstration of the DJI Matrice 600!
