CHOOSING THE VIDEO DRONE THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU
There are tons of factors that impact your choice when renting or buying a video drone. Price is a very simple factor that can be reduced down to purchasing the most expensive drone you can afford, without any further consideration. If your budget is more flexible, though, lets examine four other factors to consider besides price: camera choice, size, video quality, and flying noise.
CAMERA OPTIONS AND VIDEO QUALITY
Back in the earliest days of drones, the kind you built yourself, no camera was included and you had to hack a point-and-shoot model to allow interval shooting of still images. We’ve sure come a long way: modern drones almost always include a camera, with the best models equaling the image and video quality of professional DSLR units.
