Drones, quadcopters, UAV’s or whatever you want to call them, they’re here and they’re great!
DJI Phantom Drone - Ruimc77
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past year, you've probably noticed that drones are becoming a pretty big thing.
While drones may seem scary or pointless to some people, for photographers they've opened up an entirely new world of photography, that until now was the exclusive realm of professional photographers or extremely wealthy amateurs.
No longer does aerial photography require an expensive plane, helicopter or balloon. From as little as $149.95, you can buy a drone like this... and be flying & taking photos in minutes.
or for more serious photographers you can have professional 4K Ultra HD video and 12mp stills (like the DJI Phantom), for less than the price of a mid range DSLR.
To give you an idea of the kind of shots that you could get with your very own drone, we've put together a little gallery from the web that we think you'll really like :-)
