Event 38 Adds Sony R10C Sensor

Event 38 is proud to announce the addition to our lineup of our smartest and most integrated imaging sensor ever, the Sony R10C.

The R10C is Sony’s camera made specifically for embedded applications. Sony grants Event 38 access to the full camera controls available to the internal software. This allows us an unprecedented level of control over the camera in flight. With the R10C, we are able to ensure that the camera maintains its configuration to obtain the best quality images for every flight – no more concerns about setting the shutter speed or power timeouts for long transits. When paired with the companion computer, we can also geotag the images in real time and save them to a conveniently located thumb drive. If you plan to primarily map with the R10C and companion computer, you may never need to take out the camera or SD card at all.

The R10C remains compatible with our PPK GPS systems and its specs are identical to the Sony QX-1 in weight and resolution. It is available now as an option for new E384/E386 aircraft. We are also making it available stand-alone for users wishing to integrate it into their own aircraft. Please contact us for further information.

E384 and E386 add Sony QX1 Support

The Event 38 E384 and E386 now support the Sony QX-1 camera. With a 20MP APS-C sensor and compact body, the QX-1 is able to collect data in landscape orientation further increasing the mapping efficiency of the Event 38 fixed wing platforms.
