New Throw & Shoot Camera
Self-guided camera-drone Lily keeps angle of shooting and follows the owner according to the person’s speed.
Lily revealed a new flying camera that uses a unique “throw-and-shoot” principle: when thrown in the air it begins shooting.
The drone is controlled via a waterproof armband. Lily follows a person holding the armband at a constant distance and height up to 15m that can be controlled.
Lily is waterproof. It weights 1.3 kilograms, shoots 1080p HD-video and takes 12-megapixel still photos. The battery is strong enough to keep Lily in the air for 20 minutes. According to DIY Photography, one of the advantages of Lily is stabilizing of the image with the drones motors.
Developers Antoine Balaresque and Henry Bradlow opened pre-orders for the device at $499. Camera will go on sale in February 2016.
