The Survey3 is the newest in our line of simple to use survey cameras. Every Survey3 camera includes an external USB GPS receiver to automatically geo-tag each captured image. Its 12MP sensor and sharp non-fisheye lens allows you to easily capture aerial media. It captures photos on the default timer trigger or can be sent a PWM signal through the HDMI port (see below). If you supply power to the USB port it will power on the camera automatically. Sized similar to a GoPro® Hero these small survey cameras can be attached to your aerial drone platform using our various mounts.
The Survey3 cameras have a faster interval timer: 1.5 seconds for JPG mode and 2.75 seconds for RAW+JPG mode. (Capture speed depends on the speed of the microSD card used). You can also trigger the photo capture using a PWM signal through the HDMI port (see triggering information below). PWM can also be used to mount the camera's memory card to a computer connected via USB.
Survey3 is available in both a wide angle lens version (Survey3W) and narrow angle lens version (Survey3N). Both lenses are non-fisheye and extremely low distortion, which provide great results when aerial surveying or in other applications. The Survey3W is similar in field of view to the Survey2, most DJI cameras (Mavic, Phantom, Inspire X3) and the medium FOV on a GoPro Hero. The Survey3N provides a 2X optical fixed zoom over the Survey3W, providing 2X higher ground sample resolution (GSD).
