Late last year, we reported on the new DJI Inspire 1 drone that comes with it’s own 4K camera. This past week at CES, they unveiled a useful accessory for it, a gimbal mount that allows you to detach the camera from the plane and used it handheld.
The Inspire 1 handheld mount also has a spot for your to place your iPhone, so that you can use it as a viewfinder.
This handheld mount could be very convenient for filmmakers who go out and shoot drone & stock photography in rural areas. It basically allows you to fit all the tools you need to do both aerial and handheld shots in a single case.
The DJI Inspire 1 handheld mount has an input for an external mic. This means that it could easily be used to shoot documentaries.
DJI says the handheld gimbal will be available in Q2 of this year. As of now, no pricing information has been released.
