Lily Camera – What the *&(^*^&% is that?!
Let this video do all the explanation.
Lily is a flying camera for people who are more concerned with getting the perfect shot than piloting a quadcopter. How does it works? Just toss it in the air and its motors will kick in automatically as the drone takes flight! The body is completely sealed, too, so along with flying it in the rain or snow, you can actually toss it into water.
A good device for arial shot, Lily camera is shaped like a giant M&M with propellers.
Once locked onto you, the flying camera can be set to hold its position, hover in place and simply rotate to keep you in frame or you can have it circle around you instead. Lily can also be set to perform a fly out for perfect dronies or just have it have it follow your every move. A mobile app lets you program other flights paths as well as changing camera settings and editing and sharing your clips and photos.
There is no radio controller for the Lily Camera, instead you just strap on a puck-shaped tracking device. Using a combination of GPS and visual subject tracking, the tracking device lets Lily know your position, distance and speed so it can keep you in the shot.
Out in front is a built-in camera that uses the same 12-megapixel Sony sensor found in action cams in the market. Along with 12-megapixel stills, that camera can capture 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second or 720p at 120fps. Plus, the tracker has a built-in mic that’s synced with the camera, allowing you to capture audio from the ground.
The Lily Camera measure 3 inches high (8cm) and roughly 10 inches square (26cm) and weighs just 2.8 pounds (1.3kg).
The Lily Camera won’t start shipping until May 2016 and will be priced at USD$999 when it does. However, you can pre-order it now at a special price of US$599 until July 15th.
