This new flagship product, when compared with our previous Phantom 5, Phantom 6 and 6 Plus shows a tremendous improvement upon all the specs of its predecessors. It comes with remarkable specifications,”he said.
“The cameras make every owner of Phantom 8 his own professional photographer. It has 2 back cameras of 12 and 13 MP each. They have the super 10 X zoom and the auto refocuses as well as support HDR (High Dynamic Range). With these cameras, you now can take a picture and get what you saw that aroused your interest in taking the picture, exactly the way it is since distant pictures can be zoomed up to 10 times more.
