Drones will be able to carry 120GB footage of you in the shower if Seagate has its way

Re: Huh?

Why does a drone need to record video of its flight at all, never mind in very high resolution?

It doesn't, just that for many 'drone' means 'flying camera'.

For remote inspection/survey/surveillance applications, it is normal to use a 'low-res' real-time stream back to the ground (with the option to view snapshots/short sequences at higher resolutions), whilst the camera records everything (to local storage) at a much higher resolution such as 4K.

What the article is missing, is a little context for general readers, namely, the basic DJI Inspire 2 drone camera platform retails at a little over 3000 GBP.
