Drone cameras, or drones are these small machines that let you take photography and videography in a literal higher dimension. These drones let you take shots and clip on a place that is normally unreachable by the human body: the sky.
With the advent of this technology, photographers and videographers can use the sky to take extremely beautiful and artistic shots that add depth to a piece.
Whether it is for a personal portfolio or for business use, drones definitely are a “must-have” if you plan on making unbelievably beautiful art pieces.
But due to its popularity recently, many drone cameras have surfaced on the market claiming to be “the one for you.” Hence, we collated the three best drones out there on the market.
The Best of the Best: DJI Mavic Pro
Price: Starts at P50,000
Their top-of-the-line technology for their mean machines pack a solid punch when it comes to giving us the best performance in a tight little package.
DJI Mavic Pro Features:
- 4K video in 30 frames per second
- 3-axis gimbal
- Obstacle avoidance
- Hand gesture recognition
- Can work up to 7 kilometers from the transmitter
- 27-minute battery time
DJI also included the GPS-powered smart flight capability of its past Phantom series into the Mavic Pro. This, again, allows for obstacle avoidance on certain places.
Speaking of which, sharing the number one spot on the best drones out there is the DJI Phantom Pro Plus. Definitely worth checking out as well.
Intermediate level droning: Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer
Price: Starts at P30,800
The Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer has TONS of functionality and fun features that separates it from all the intermediate level drones out there.
Parrot Bebop 2 Adventurer Features:
- SkyController 2
- 2 kilometer operating range
- 22 minutes of operating time
- Neat backpack!
Bebop 2 Adventurer’s SkyController 2 elevates this drone from being a mere 100-meter selfie drone to a 2-kilometer beast. Add the extremely interesting Cockpitglasses feature of the drone, and it turns into a fun experience.
Cockpitglasses is Parrot’s VR headset (yes, VR as in Virtual Reality) that allows you to experience what the drone is seeing in real time. This comes in with their package since their dedicated app supports VR functionality.
Budget but not Bad-at-it: MJX Bugs 2W
Price: Starts at P10,015
MJX Bugs 2W Features:
- Full HD cameras
- Headless Mode,
- Altitude Hold
- WiFi FPV
- 500 Meters of operating range
- 18 minutes operating time
Despite not being up-to-par with the range of the previous two drones mentioned, the Bugs 2W isn’t something you should underestimate. All its features allow for a smooth drone flying experience topped off by its full high definition camera.
Also, the 500-meter range is just for software capabilities, this drone can actually reach around 1000 meters of flying range.
Truly something you should check out if you are starting to feel like entering in the world of drones and would like to have a good experience without dishing out too much cash.
