How to choose a camera drone

30 October 2020 by Adrienn Kerekes 0 Comments

Exceptional aerial photos and videos appear daily in magazines, on TV and on social media. Seeing the breathtaking visual world of drones, you have probably already asked yourself the question, how can you get a camera drone so that you can capture these moments yourself. Now we'll tell you what you need to know before buying a camera drone in 2020.

Why choose a camera drone?
With the help of camera drones, we can reach places and create compositions in a completely new way compared to traditional handheld cameras. Their use is increasing in many fields: for professional aerial photography and filming, for capturing moments of various sports events, for taking cool snapshots during travels, and for creating unique photos for special occasions such as weddings.

How to choose a camera drone
2020 is the time to get yourself a camera drone. The best unmanned vehicle (UAV) companies are constantly trying to surprise the market with unique and innovative camera drones that not only have great features, but are also reliable and intuitive. Plus, camera drones have dropped in price. You can get an entry-level camera drone for under $400. In the price category above 1000 USD, you can get a professional drone with professional image quality and performance.

Camera drones contain dozens of functions, it is worth considering them in order to find the most suitable one for you:

1. Flight safety and reliability
Safety is always key when buying a camera drone. Stable and worry-free flight requires an advanced controller that intelligently handles instructions. The more intelligent the processor, the more "smooth" your flight experience will be. Try to find a camera drone with an advanced obstacle avoidance system. High-end drones also have features such as automatically returning home when the drone's battery is too low.

2. Camera performance
Good camera drones are powerful devices that have high-resolution camera settings for top-notch image quality. The size of the sensor, the ISO range, the shutter speed, the way you shoot and many other things determine which category a camera drone fits into. Professional-level camera drones have a 1-inch sensor and are capable of capturing at least 12-megapixel photos and 4K or even 5.2Ks video and RAW format.

The quality of the gimbal is just as important. In order to capture a fine shot in flight, aerial photography requires stabilization. Therefore, we emphasize that you should choose a high-quality gimbal, which can reduce the vibration from flying. Currently, there are two-axis and three-axis gimbals on the market, and we strongly recommend getting at least the latter.

3. Flight performance
Video transmission is one of the essential elements of aerial photography in the sense that what the camera records is transmitted directly to your phone in real time. If the video transmission is delayed or interrupted, it will be difficult to control your drone's HD camera, let alone store the carefully captured images. The improved transmission systems support 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz dual frequency for interference tolerance and have longer transmission distance.

4. Intelligent functions
The best camera drones in 2020 are equipped with many flight smart features. With them, capturing breathtaking footage is easy and fun, even in difficult situations. For example, if you're photographing fast-moving objects, a feature like ActiveTrack will help the camera drone recognize and track the object while keeping it in the field of view. Countless other intelligent functions are also available in camera drones, which should also be taken into account before purchasing.

5. Portability
Portability is the new trend in the camera drone market. Most of the time, it is inconvenient and difficult to carry a large, heavy camera drone. This is especially true for those who want to take pictures while traveling. Following this logic, mini-drones make it extremely easy to take photos "on the go", whether it's a hike or attending a family barbecue.

6. Service
Value-added services are important factors when deciding which drone manufacturer to choose. In addition to the traditional warranty, it is a smart decision to buy your camera drone from a company that provides detailed instructions, personal training, workshops, etc. offer. What's more, there is also accident insurance. For novice pilots, these services are always a big plus.

    What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularized in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humor and the like).
