A few years ago drones may have looked like a thing of the distant future. However, this year has proven that camera drones can be everyone's perfect gadget for different activities. If you're looking to buy a drone this year, here are the best ones for different undertakings.
DJI Mavic Pro For Travellers
Travel photographers would appreciate DJI's Mavic Pro very much. This drone has a very compact body making it one of the easiest drone to carry. Furthermore, this drone also comes with DJI's popular technologies including intelligent flying features. The Mavic Pro can detect obstacles from afar and it also has multiple modes for different types for footage. Overall, this new DJI drone is one of the most solid drone options this year. Not only is it unlikely to encounter crashes and collisions, it offers impressive camera quality as well.
Lily Drone For Intense Outdoor Footage
If you're looking for a waterproof drone for your extreme water adventure, the Lily drone should be one of your top options. This drone isn't only waterproof, it is also very portable as well as it has foldable propellers. Nevertheless, the Lily drone isn't exactly full-featured like the other drones. It is just perfect for specific activities like water sports and the likes as it is a simple drone that follows a subject. Using a tracking device, the Lily drone would know what its subject is and proceeds to follow it while capturing footage.
DJI Inspire 2 For Cinematography
The DJI Inspire 2 is best known for its dual camera system, making it a top choice for many videographers and film makers. The DJI Inspire 2 has a rotating camera underneath it and another camera in front. Changing lenses is also an option with the DJI Inspire 2. On top of that, this drone is also equipped with DJI's intelligent flying features making it safe and easy to use.
GoPro Karma For Adventure Sport
GoPro's Karma has a removable camera, which means that using different cameras or replacing your older one doesn't mean getting a new drone altogether. Take note though that the GoPro Karma is only compatible with the Hero 4 and Hero 5 cameras. Needless to say, the GoPro Karma is a good option for everyone who likes to go for adventure sports. This drone may not be as intelligent as most drones are, but it's just as fun to use. It even comes with a controller that practically looks like the older gaming controllers we have all loved.
Do take note however, that this drone is still being recalled by GoPro. Apparently, the GoPro Karma has power issues that the company aims to fix. For interested buyers, you may have to wait a little while until GoPro puts its drone back in the market.
Parrot Bebop Drone 2 For Light Family Usage
For light family use, the Parrot Bebop Drone 2 is a great option. It is a small and easy-to-store drone but it is also just as smart as you'd want it to be. The Bebop Drone 2 is actually able to stop flying when an obstruction is detected. Furthermore, Parrot's drone is actually also able to do flips. Overall, this drone is one of the top options for family-friendly drones.
