Camera Drones have carved out a special name for themselves in the modern world.

From aerial photography to surveillance videos, here are the best camera drones with the latest technology that will allow you to up your photography game and be at par with professionals.

DJI Mavic Mini

This is my choice for the best mini drone. Size is one of the DJI MAVIC MINI advantages. At just 249g, it comes under the 250g threshold making it extremely light and portable. It is jampacked with features and comes at an economical price of just under 400$. The Mavic mini is packed with core features like 30-minute flight time and a 2.5mile HD video transmission. It’s also equipped with a 3 access gimbal holding a 2.7K camera and a physical controller that works with both android and ios devices.

Once folded, the Mavic mini is instantly portable and fits in the palm of your hand. The drone is well balanced and performs well, even in high wind. The images are above power and capture 12.5 MP still or 2.7K videos. It comes with automated presets making it a great drone for beginners too. The remote can communicate with the drone up to 2.5 miles and comes with safety features to stabilize outdoor flights and an automated return to home feature. This feature has proved to be extremely useful, especially for beginners who have a hard time navigating the drone back home. There is also a “Find My Drone” option in the App in case of an unplanned landing.

In all the product hits the sweet spot of core features, build quality and performance at an affordable price, making it a great choice for novice flyers.

Eachine E52 Max

This is my pick for the best Cheap Drone. The EACHINE E52 MAX is Eachine’s most ambitious drone yet offering 4k recording while keeping the price below 150$. This makes for an affordable, incredible entry-level drone for Hobbyists. The drone serves beginners as well as experienced users alike. For beginners, the learning curve of the E52 is short, so you will be able to experience the drone experience in no time.

The flight performance is pretty solid even in windy conditions. It can be controlled with preset flight mode or the ‘Follow Me’ mode. This allows the drone to follow you around, giving you aerial selfies along with a view feature that can stream live videos up to 270 yards. The remote control is comfortable to hold with transmission up to 330 yards. The 4k camera captures vivid aerial videos and has a 120-degree field view giving you a wide-angle to record sweeping videos. Instead of a gimbal, this drone features a 6 AXIS Gyroscope which provides stability during flights to minimize shakes. The 1200 MAh battery gives a decent 15 minutes of flight time, which is longer than most other drones in its price range.

If you’re eager to jump into the world of drones but don’t want to spend a lot of money, you’ll be more than surprised by the performance and video quality of the product.

DJI Mavic Pro 2

Coming in just under 1750$ the DJI MAVIC PRO 2 is the best overall drone for those serious about their aerial video and photography. The drone features an OOAS with sensors in every direction which prevents the drone from crashing into objects. It is also equipped with an Active Track mode. The drone identifies and tracks the moving object with side sensors enabled. It measures 322×242×84mm but is still very portable when folded. Performance and handling are stellar, and the battery gives a more than decent 31 minutes of flight time.

Unlike most drones in its class, it uses a 1-inch image sensor to deliver true color and brilliantly detailed images. It captures 4UHD footage at 10MB/s and comes equipped with a Micro SD card slot.

The product is a premium drone with incredible performance, a brilliant 4K camera, solid build quality, and its top of the class Omnidirectional Sensor.
