Camera and Camera Ready Drones
Whether you are a nature lover or an architect, a sports fan or an engineer, a camera drone can be an indispensable addition to your toolkit. Giving crystal clear pictures of places you can't access directly, from nesting sites to rooftops, a camera drone will help you to see the world in a whole new way.
Choosing a Camera Drone
There are a number of things to consider when choosing a drone on eBay. Firstly, you need to decide whether you want a ready to fly drone, or a drone kit. Kits are considerably cheaper, but ready to fly is more convenient. You also need to decide if you want the camera included with your drone, or whether you are going to add your own, such as a Go Pro unit.
The Right Camera Drone for the job
The next thing to consider is what you are planning to use the drone for. If you are a roofing engineer, then you may only need a short range drone, whereas nature photographers may need a far longer range. Drone ranges go from as little as 50m right up to 5km and beyond.
Choosing the Picture Quality
If you are simply assessing a repair job, then you won't need the same high quality pictures as you would for broadcast and so you can save money on the quality of the camera. Drone cameras are available in a wide range of resolutions, from basic models to full 4K HD. Time lapse cameras and wide angle lenses are also available.
Operating Your Camera Drone
You can choose whether to operate your drone with a remote control unit or via an app on your smartphone, laptop or tablet computer. The best quality drones allow a first person view or FPV monitoring, so you can see exactly what the drone is seeing and adjust the flight path accordingly.
