I'm interested in drone too, I think I'll get a Mavic pro before next year so I can use in a trip.

I don't think Nikon 1 is really useful for drone.... DJI has 1" camera and M43 camera already.

2. Do you think Nikon would ever revive/repurpose the 1 mount for drone photography.


DJI (and Yuneec) are using the Micro Four Thirds mount for drones.

That's why I ask... I know others say Nikon has no business making a drone... but a drone is nothing more than a flying gimbal. Optics matter most and Nikon has expertise in this area..

DJI would eat their lunch and run circles around Nikon.

I don't even want to think of what Nikon would want for a drone. 7K for the drone, 5K for the remote, 2k for a charger and 300 bucks per battery is my best guess.


But it would be compatible with all of their legacy drones going back to the 1970s.

I'd actually suggest Nikon partner with a drone manufacturer. They have the optics. Let someone else provide the drone.

Doesn't DJI already own a fair share if not the majority of Hasselblad?

Not saying DJI would pare up with Nikon... just saying they should pare with A drone co... yes DJI purchased a controlling stake I believe.

It seems DJI is the drone market leader, very nimble on their feet, and very aggressive in pushing leading technology. Every other drone company will be hard pressed to compete. Nikon has to pay attention to their core business and hardly can afford a distraction, such as joining effort with a drone company. My 2 cents.
