Canon is taking to the skies with its new PD6E2000-AW-CJ1 drone, a six-rotor drone that has been designed to use Canon's high-end ME20F-SH camera into search and rescue operations, reports Engadget.

Canon's new PD6E2000-AW-CJ1 drone isn't radically different from other professional drones from DJI, but Canon wins in the camera department for low-light emergency situations thanks to the huge 4 million ISO. The new drone is also weather proof, and features a two-axis gimbal that can take 10kg of weight.

The drone costs $20,000 - but don't worry, your rewards points will be happy with the additional $20,000 required for the ME20F-SH camera as well.

With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
