With a huge boost in popularity during the course of this year, drones have stepped up to being one of the most important tech gadgets out there. DJI has set the scene nicely for other drone manufacturers and there’s no doubt that the drones industry will continue flourishing in the upcoming time. Some great things are happening in drones industry these days. I believe most of you guys will know that biggest drones drawback is short battery life. In 2016, many drones with long flight time were announced, and we expect that trend to be continued! Similar thing happened to smartphones after the release of the iconic original iPhone and just look at what that brought to the world. I am not saying that drones are going to replace smartphones… I mean, how could they, they don’t do the same things. But still, they could go ahead and replace traditional cameras and such equipment, especially when it comes to filmmaking and music videos.
Why are they becoming so popular in the filmmaking and music video production industries?
As you already might know, drones with camera are offering an amazing number of things in quite a small package. They are packed with a bunch of sensors, stabilization systems, top quality action cameras mounted on motorized (stability-enhancing) gimbals for maximum smoothness, all of which are making them proper aerial filming platforms. They provide with a unique type of aerial videos that are rather easy on the eye. Their ability to capture incredible sights and bird’s eye panorama views is something that many artists want in their repertoires. As you can conclude all by yourself, all of the things mentioned above provide a great number of uses for filmmakers. The most innovative of them have already started using these incredible new gadgets, while the rest of the lot is surely about to step in the drone game themselves. Of course, this will lead to more drone demands and result in better drones at even cheaper prices. In other words, this is just another reason why drones are the next big tech thing.
The only way you could explain not knowing about drones is if you’ve spent the last year living under a rock. They are a huge trend nowadays and have made their way onto the tech scene and into millions of homes worldwide with a breeze. They come in all shapes and sizes, accompanied by a wide variety of extra functions, many of which are quite unique. Whether you are a high school student, bachelor or just a teen looking for some extra fun on weekends, drone must looks so appealing to you… But how exactly have they become such a huge hit? Why are they so cool? Well, stick around till the end of this article and you might just find out! J
Of course, fun has to be on the top of this list. They captivate our minds and let us explore and see things from different perspective than we are so used to. They provide us with a unique controlling experience, much more sophisticated when compared to regular RC toys. They add that third dimension and are not like anything we have ever had the chance to play with. Sure, there were RC airplanes, helicopters and stuff like that, but they were either too expensive or had a really steep learning curve which blocked their way to success. When it comes to fun functions today’s drones possess, probably the most interesting one is FPV. First person view or more commonly referred to as FPV, represents drone’s ability to provide you with a live feed of the action straight from the “cockpit”. When you combine this function with your VR headset (Google Cardboard, Samsung VR and similar devices) you will end up with an amazingly immersive piloting experience that’s unlike anything you’ve tried before.
Drones are not only fun little toys; they can also be used for shooting amazing aerial footage that will be on par with professional recordings. With this being said, many businesses such as real estate and amusement parks are opting for aerial platforms (read drones) to boost the quality of their services. For example, real estate businesses often use drones to make top quality aerial photographs of the properties they are selling, thus increasing their chances of landing customers. This is a proven strategy and can be used in many different scenarios. If you are a businessman, t’s up to you to find the optimal one!
Capture awesome moments
The final reason why drones are so cool is the fact that they can be used to capture awesome moments throughout your life. They are not only suited for business photography; they can be used for recording hobbies and important life moments as well. Most commonly, drones are used to capture extreme sports such as snow kiting, ski biking, wind suiting; creating awesome displays of bravery and skill combined with amazing footage from aerial perspective. All things considered, if you are into extreme sports you should definitely consider getting a drone to capture those awesome moments!
I don’t know about you, but I definitely fall in love with wonderful landscapes when my friends are showing their recent footages to me. Past two months I didn’t travel anywhere, and they really make me jelous 🙂 . Good footages can be so relaxing that it’s almost unrealistic. Anyways, I won’t make this longer than it should be, so here’s video :
