While doing my morning run with my running mates in Hafnarfjordur I met Sigurjón playing with his Phantom 4 Pro+ .
One of the most exciting developments in photography in the last year or two is the drone. These are high flying cameras that enable you to capture unique viewpoints of common subjects. The cost of getting a camera into the air has dropped dramatically. So apart from the amazing images you will capture, they are also tremendous fun!
Similar to camera equipment in general, how much you’re prepared to spend will determine the quality of camera on-board, and the flying characteristics of the drone itself. There are low-cost models that will take very basic images, up to the big boys toys that will happily lift your prized DSLR up into the heavens. You can even add your GoPro on to some units that will take advantage of camera gear you may already have. One company has a range of models that has a large percentage of the market – DJI.
We can organise your Drone Photography Tours
We have been photographing with drones in Iceland for three years now and know most of the spots. It is not only to know where the best spots for video and photography are but safety is another very important issue.
- Drone must always be in Line of Sight (LOS)
