4 Useful Drones for Aerial Photography, Inspection and Mapping

4 USEFUL DRONES FOR AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY, INSPECTION AND MAPPING

Angles in photography are very important and useful to showcase the beauty and versatility of the object being photographed or inspected as well as the skill of the photographer.

Certain angles especially from higher elevations can only be gotten with the aid of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle UAV, in this case, photography and videography drones.

Drones make it easier to take pictures from certain angles that would have erstwhile required photographers to climb cranes and tractors, hang off a helicopter or climb multiple-storeyed buildings. These days all these can be done without the added risk, with the aid of a drone.

They provide flight assistance and smart features to help the photographer get some great shots that would not have been gotten with a standard point-and-shoot camera.

They have splendid features or specifications for capturing night videos. The ISO and shutter speed are much more suitable for taking night videos. They also have flashlights or LED lights to shoot for the night.

They can also cover long distances and take pictures from the farthest heights.

Although drone photography can be difficult, having the right knowledge and materials, and using the right equipment can help make the process worthwhile and yield breathtaking pictures.

Here are 4 useful drones recommended by professionals for photography, inspection and mapping.

THE DJI MAVIC MINI 2

The DJI Mavic Mini 2, a small drone with camera

This drone is very good for beginners and children as well. For people who want drones for personal use or just to share amazing pictures on social media, the DJI Mini 2 is a less expensive model that still includes a 4K camera.

It has a battery life of up to 31 minutes and comes equipped with a 4k camera. It is pretty small, about the size of an adult hand when folded up and quite lightweight. The Mini 2 still comes with the important features you need from a video drone, such as image and flight stabilization and an included controller, as well as smart flight modes in which the drone flies itself to easily capture cinematic shots.

You can get this drone at a 5% discount today on our geostore.

 

The DJI MAVIC Air 2S

The DJI Mavic air 2s Drone with wings folded,the camera is very useful for photography

This drone combines ease of flight with long battery life and a camera that can shoot 5.4K video resolution.

The Air 2S can sense and avoid obstacles approaching from the front, back, top, and below, and it can alert you to approaching aircraft. It can also hold its position steadily, even in moderate winds up to 10 mph.  The battery life lasts long enough, about 31-minutes and it is mobile enough so you can carry it in a moderately sized backpack.

 

THE DJI MAVIC 3

This drone combines many of the best features of the DJI Air 2S. It adds a superior image sensor and Hasselblad camera. This model captures 20-megapixel photographs and 5.1K videos that look very colourful. It also has a 46-minute battery life and stores pictures in Jpeg formats.

 

THE AUTEL ROBOTICS EVO 2

The Autel Robotic Evo 2 Drone is one of the 4 useful drones for photography, inspection and mapping

This drone is quite easy to fly. It offers a 6K camera and 40 minutes of flight time, a worthy alternative to DJI drones. It has 3D Obstacle Avoidance, 64GB SD Card, and can transmit from up to 7.4 Miles away.

All of these drones are available on our Geostore at 5% discount in commemoration of our 5th year anniversary.

Please let us know if this article helps and which of these drones you would like to try for photography.
