No need to spend time for camera settings or long fly, this apps is driving your DJI drone(*) and its gimbal, based on our optimized templates. And the camera adjustments are still available on the fly for best color result.
SmartAerial PANO required an additional optical lens with your Zenmuse X5, X5s or X7. The traditional wide angle cameras do not allow giga-pixel resolution panorama.
We recommend the Olympus Zuiko 45mm lens.
The X3 and X4s gimbals, as well as the Osmo Pro are NOT compatible.
Aerial Photo for the professionnal
Configure your camera in Manual mode, Aperture Mode, Speed Mode, even during the caption process.

Zenmuse X5 - X5s - X7 templates for Giga pano
Trusted models are provided for optimized Giga Panorama, using profesionnal lens. Templates are integrated into the app and available on www.smartaerial.app<br />
For example, the 8×3 model allows an ultra high definition horizontal panorama with an horiztonal 120° field of view. Final image resolution is above 400 Mega-pixels (with 45mm camera lens).
Camera positions are overlapped with an optimized pattern to minimize the distorsion and the vignetting in the same picture corner. This technic improves the stitching process with your third-party software.
The field of view for your final panorama is visualized prior to your capture. Thus the framing is optimized related to your targeted panorama.
