Many years ago, attaching a camera to a drone would have been a ludicrous idea to simply put, would not have been possible. However, dramatic advancements in technology has now meant that small yet powerful cameras are now built-in to most drones that are available on the market today. Although you can still find quadrotors without a camera, it is rare and most do include a high quality option for both pictures and video. Because of the addition of cameras to drones, the industry is now huge and growing ever more popular every single year.
In 2014, the well-known drone manufacturer, DJI, introduced HD to their drones and the game was changed forever. The quadrotor was also equipped with a three-way gimbal which keeps the camera steady during rough weather conditions as well as the vibrations of the drone itself. As a result, drones are now being used worldwide for a number of tasks including film production and crowd control.
If you are still picturing a photograph from a drone to be from a ‘fisheye’ point of view then think again.
The Global Drone with 1080p Camera is a great camera drone for beginners. The 1080p camera offers crisp videos and photographs. 50 meters of real time transmission allows you to capture the most interesting angles from every direction.
Meanwhile, for the more motivated drone enthusiast, the Professional RC Drone 4k allows for beautiful 4k resolution, double the flight time, and GPS guidance capabilities.
So those are two of the best camera options when it comes to drones but there are many other options in-between so why not have a search and see what ones stand out for you?
