What is a drone ?
Drones are small, unmanned aerial or ground-based robots, that are operated for fun, hobby and even commercial use (with special permission from the Federal Aviation Authority). Most are equipped for video camcorder and camera, and allow you to capture video and images from angles you cannot normally reach. Flying drones, also called U.A.Vs unmanned aerial vehicles, are remote controlled with multirotors. Quadcopters are a type of multi rotor aircraft with four rotors. Most drones are operated with radio remote controllers, but can also be programmed and controlled via tablet or smartphone.
Which photography drone is right for you?
Photographers of all skill levels can use drones to capture pictures from unique perspectives. Whether it’s taking video of your friends surfing, or capturing a scenic mountain panorama, having a camera in the sky can bring new life to your photos and movies. If you already own an action camera, you may want to check out models that are equipped with a camera mount rather than a built-in camera. Some models, Quadcopters and others are utilized with a built-in camera and a stabilizing gimbal. Most photography drone systems provide mobile apps for iOS and Android devices that let you watch the video live via Wi-Fi. Photography drones can be classified into three categories based on the operator’s experience level and intended use: Casual Enthusiast, Hobbyist, and Pro.
Most photography drones include three flight modes: auto, hover, and manual. Auto-flight modes are pre programmed computer-assisted course settings that allow for automatic flying via GPS. There is no standard set of auto-flight mode terms, but among the most popular are orbit, cable cam, follow me and return home. Drones with auto and hover flying modes are recommended for all levels of operators. Hover will stop drone movement when the operator removes their hands from the controls and is particularly useful when learning to operate a drone or filming from a single position in the air.
For camera less drones, a compatible action camera and stabilizing gimbal are essential for capturing high-quality footage. Other accessories to consider to make the most of your flying time are extra batteries, Micro SD Cards, spare propellers, and prop guards.
For easy set up, choose a drone that is ready-to-fly (RTF) right out of the box. Many entry-level drones require minimal setup and come with everything you need to take off, including, battery, charger, controller and manual. All that is needed is to charge the battery, attach any accessories, like prop guards, and connect the controller to your smartphone. To start your filming adventure, you’ll need to mount an action camera to your drone or purchase a drone with a built-in camera.
