There are many different good camera drones available right now in the market, ranging from $100 to drones to buy for $1000 and more.
We have listed 3 best camera drones to buy in 2015 for photography and filmmaking purpose.
The DJI Inspire 1 has a cutting edge design that allows for two controllers to be used simultaneously — one to control the drone’s flight, and the other to control the camera. This drone with camera gives users an unprecedented level of control for recording and snapping photos. DJI Inspire 1 also has a 3-axis gimbal that can rotate to get the perfect view of what the user is filming. With the Inspire, you’re able to record 4K video at 24-30FPS, or 1080p at up to 60FPS. The camera snaps photos at 12 megapixels.
This camera drone comes in at just $1,249, and still has a ton of great features. While it’s not possible to capture 4K video with it, the Yuneec Q500 is capable of recording 1080P surveillance footage at 60FPS and snaps still photos at 16 megapixels. It also has a 3-Axis Gimbal to help get the perfect shot. It has a wide angle 130-degree field of view lens.
Parrot Bebop Quadcopter that has 14MP FULL HD 1080P capabilities for a fraction of the price of the other drones on this list. Obviously, the price drop means it comes with significantly less features. There’s no 4K capabilities nor does it record in 60FPS. But, it records full 1080P HD videos at 30FPS and can take stills at 14 megapixels.
