So, you’re looking to up your photography game with a drone but you’re not exactly sure where to start. Well, fret not! Below is a list of the four very best drones perfectly crafted for capturing the crispest, highest-quality aerial shots. Lucky for you, all of these great options are available to try on Lumoid. Whether you’re looking for a straight-up aerial photography minded drone, or a jack-of-all-trades drone to goof around with, these four options will certainly satisfy.
When it comes to drone manufacturers, DJI is king. The Inspire 1 is their flagship drone, and as the old saying goes: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This quadcopter comes equipped with a 3-axis gimbal, which provides an unobstructed, 360-degree view perfect for capturing expansive shots, and a 4K camera to lend those aerial photos the highest of quality. A maximum speed of 72.2 fps allows for capturing action-packed videos in addition to photos.
Another great option from DJI, the Phantom 3 Professional has all the features and gimmicks of the Inspire 1, but with an improved 4K UHD video camera. This enables the Phantom 3 to shoot up to 12MP still photos using JPEG or non-proprietary DNG RAW format photos. This one is for the serious photographer looking to get the most out of their drone shots.
This smart drone is easily controlled, offering seamless flight with a built-in computer system and program called Smart Shots, which allows the drone to capture professional, smooth aerial photos and videos all its own. The 3DR Solo is also the only drone to offer live video streaming in crystal clear HD from a GoPro directly to a tablet or mobile device, but does require one of those devices to operate.
So maybe you’re not the most advanced photographer, but you still wanna have fun taking pictures in the sky from a drone – The Explorer Kit is for you. Complete with the user-friendly Phantom II drone, Go Pro Hero 4 and a 32GB memory card, strap the GoPro to the drone to capture breathtaking video footage!
