Drone manufacturer DJI is working on a mirrorless camera to compete with current offerings from Sony, Nikon, and Cannon. DJI has submitted a patent application on the same day FCC filings were made public for DJI’s Digital FPV system. The new DJI mirrorless camera shows a resemblance to the X1D-50c from Hasselblad.

Over the last year or so, DJI has expanded its product offering well beyond their core product, drones. In short succession, they have launched the DJI Osmo Pocket, DJI Osmo Action, DJI Robomaster S1, the DJI FPV system and they are about to launch the DJI Osmo Mobile 3 and now possibly a new mirrorless camera.

DJI’s Hasselblad online store (Germany) is now open for business with a 10% discount on all products

Back in 2015 DJI acquired a minority stake in Hasselblad, the famous Swedish medium-format camera company. Early in 2017, DJI increased their share to a majority interest, although how much the drone manufacturer exactly owns has never been made public. DJI’s recent efforts to increase the global online sales of their products received a boost due to a new partnership with Worldpay, so it should not come as a surprise that Hasselblad now opens their virtual doors with a new online store. To celebrate the Grand Opening, you can now receive a 10% discount on all the Hasselblad cameras and lenses. Keep in mind the discount is for a limited time only, starting today until the 18th of February.

Note: The online store is only available to German customers for the moment. Hopefully, that will change soon.

Update: We have contacted Hasselblad and the U.S. online store will open in March and will have a Grand Opening Promotion as well. Details will follow.
