LAS VEGAS, CES 2016 – January 6, 2016 –  ProDrone, the leading consumer drone manufacturer focusing on power and portability, today announced the introduction of their new Ultimate Flying Platform line with a static mount capable of lifting and integrating with several of the world’s most popular DLSR cameras. This marks the first time a consumer drone has been able to integrate with heavier DSLR cameras, increasing the ease and value of producing super high quality aerial photography. Get a demo of the new system at booth #25417 at CES in Las Vegas from January 6-9, 2016.

ProDrone’s new partnership program is seeking to expand relationships with the world’s leading camera manufacturers to develop the best solutions and options for the drone market.

The ProDrone BYRD, best known for its unique ability to fold up to the size of an iPad for hyper portability, has now added another unique ability by introducing a static mount for DSLRs. The new mount is integrated with several Sony cameras (DSC-RX100M4, ILCE6000, a7RII) and the RICOH GR2. The system is also available with limited operations for the Panasonic GH4, Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera BMD and the Canon 5DIII. Full integration will be available for all these cameras by Q2 2016.

“With the drone market maturing, it becomes obvious that a flying platform that integrates with the world’s best cameras is the best option for the most people,” stated Joseph Haagensen, Community Manager for ProDrone. “A lot of people have been asking for integration with the top cameras they already use for photography. This was the basis for our Ultimate Flying Platform line that we’ll continue to expand with more cameras and stabilized gimbals. At the end of the day, the ProDrone BYRD will be the only drone anyone will need to buy.”
