Empire Hobby Announces Distribution Partnership with Sony
Phoenix, AZ., June 14, 2013– Empire Hobby, LLC announces a distribution partnership with Sony Electronics. Empire Hobby is a growing distributor of radio controlled vehicles and associated products to the hobby sector. The wide ranging use of radio controlled vehicles for aerial photography had led Empire Hobby to seek out a leading camera manufacturer to fulfill the growing need for capturing aerial imagery and video. Empire has recently completed an agreement to become a distributor of the Sony digital imaging products relating to aerial photography.
Radio Controlled Aerial Photography (RCAP) has proven to be a valuable and affordable tool for acquiring imagery that was nearly impossible or highly expensive to obtain by any other means. Empire Hobby is currently flying Sony’s Action Cam and NEX family of cameras with existing aircraft using highly precise gyro-stabilized gimbals that allow for independent camera operation if so desired.
“We are very excited about working with such an iconic corporation and brand to capture this rapidly growing market. Sony has led the way in digital imaging and Empire has become the nation’s leading distributor of multi-rotor aircraft; so I see this as a great partnership”, said Jack Burnside, president of Empire Hobby.
