Sony SLT Camera Found in Crashed North Korean Spy Drone

Guess what fancy camera technology North Korea uses for its spy drone program? Sony’s A-mount SLT cameras. One of these cameras was recently found by South Korean authorities in a North Korean spy drone that was found crashed in a forest.

According to Reuters, South Korean authorities said that the drone had apparently crashed while flying back to North Korea after shooting photos of an advanced U.S. anti-missile battery located in South Korea.

On the drone was a Sony SLT digital camera with about 10 photos of the anti-missile system in the 64GB memory card.

“The pictures don’t have high resolution, though,” South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff says. “Most other photos contain images of forest land and residential areas.”
