Soon you could be blasting your fancy Micro Four Thirds lenses into the heavens

Fancy strapping your impressive collection of lenses to a drone for ultimate aerial shots? Of course you do

The current DJI Phantom 2 drone comes with two camera options: a built-in one, or a bracket to attach a GoPro. And the built-in one isn't that brilliant. 

But a recent announcement by Olympus suggests that you'll be able to use interchangeable lenses in the future.

DJI has signed up to support the Micro Four Thirds System, a standard that was created by Olympus and Panasonic back in 2008, meaning that future DJI drones could well support interchangeable Olympus and Panasonic lenses.

There will need to be a limit on the size of the lens however, primarily because of weight. You wouldn't want to crash your drone, and with it, lose your super-expensive telephoto lens, would you? We sure wouldn't.

DJI has yet to confirm what drones will benefit from the system, but going on this evidence, we're confident that we'll be sending our favourite glasswear into the skies for the perfect shot, in the hopefully not-too-distant future.
