If you’re a gear head on any level or even if you just like RC fun a drone is becoming more and more essential for the videographer. The DJI Phantom 4 is my first drone (to own) and, just like everything else DJI, it doesn’t disappoint. The image clarity is the best you can do for the price point. If I have a complaint, I would really just have to point to the clumsy remote and the forced ipad connection. It’s GREAT today, however in a few years I suspect we’ll all be laughing had things were.
If you can afford to sacrifice image quality just a little bit the DJI Mavic is a better option since it offers a smaller form factor and the remote is much more compact.
