The Best 2016 Drone Buyers Guide is Here!
A General Guide for Aerial Photo/Video & FPV Drones for the 2016 – Jeff Foster
2015 has been an amazing year for aerial/drone photography and videography, and I’ve compiled a list of great products that will appeal to aspiring aerial videographers just starting out or looking to upgrade to the next level going into the new year!
I’m asked almost daily in my blog posts or social media communities, as to what would be the best craft to start with or for a specific need. That’s really a loaded question, usually, because it all depends on what you’re trying to achieve and how much time/money you can afford to put into it – and if you’re looking to start shooting commercial productions right away. So I’m compiling a list of products here and how they can be used for various purposes.
I’ve decided to separate this guide into several “classes” – from the smaller “toy” class (perfect for learning to fly with) to the FPV Racing/Sport Quadcopters, to the Prosumer Photo/Video Quadcopters all the way up to the professional heavy-lifter hexes, octos and X8s. And since I’m only interested in presenting you with options that you can shoot video and/or photos with and/or have FPV capabilities for training or shooting, I’ll only be listing the best choices in each category covered here…
