Drone photography is something I’ve shied away from until this year when I was first loaned a DJI Mavic air from DJI, and then bought my own drone – a DJI Mavic 2 Pro. So, in April this year, I completed the two-day PfCO course with Pro Drone Academy in Ely, which I’m happy to say I passed. And after applying for my Permissions for Commercial Operations from the Civil Aviation Authority, I received my PfCO at the end of May. I’m now a CAA approved drone pilot, so in addition to my standard photography services I can now provide aerial stills and video to clients.
Whether you love or loathe selfies, the Hover Camera by Zero Zero Robotics – a Shanghai-based company, is an exciting new self-flying camera with the ability to track faces while following people around shooting stills or 4k video. Weighing just 238 grams, the Hover Camera is easy to use and designed to completely remove the difficulties of flying a drone.
