Phase One details the experience that its client EyeFly has had whilst using the Phase One 100 Megapixel camera to support inspection and mapping projects.

100 Megapixel camera – Efficient

EyeFly has been working with a Phase One 100 Megapixel camera for over six years.

This professional camera in combination with our expertise ensures the best end product. Read more below about the benefits of this camera and how it can support inspection and mapping projects.

  • Map a larger area in less time

The image above shows how large the area is that is captured with a 20, 45 and 100 Megapixel camera. As shown, a 100 Megapixel camera captures a significantly larger area at once. This allows users to work much more efficiently: fewer photos are needed to map a larger area, hence flying takes significantly less time.

  • Capture 6 times more surface area

Phase One 100 MP Camera for Eyefly“Compared to the most commonly used 20 Megapixel cameras, we gain an average of 6 times as much surface area in the same flight time. Because we capture a larger area in one go, this also means that we can process the images quicker and more efficiently”, says Remco Kootstra, CEO of EyeFly.

  • Everything for the desired final product

Phase One 100 MP drone cameraHigh quality photos make for high quality products. For each project, we determine how we will collect the photos and with what resolution. In this way we can ultimately deliver the desired product. Often, a 3D point cloud is the basis for our end products, requiring the level of detail of the point cloud to match the products that are being realized.

  • More depth and details through dynamic range

As EyeFly cannot always fly in the most optimal weather conditions, they are facing additional challenges. In certain weather conditions, if it is a dark and extremely cloudy day, or in reverse when there is a lot of sunshine, shadows can appear in the images. This significantly impacts the visibility of small details. The iXM 100 Megapixel camera from Phase One offers a high dynamic range, allowing for editing of the shadows and dark photos easily with appropriate software. This increases the depth of the image and results in substantially better visibility of important details.
