Upgraded to a new drone for Photography and Video Work

in #curielast month


Drones are an amazing tool when it comes to photography and video work. Being able to see from high above and get shots that you never could before is such a fun thing. I love flying my drone and I have owned a few drones in the past. As a licensed Part 107 pilot, I am always looking for the right tool for the job at hand.

A while back I had to sell my drone as it was just too big and had become impractical for my needs, and the batteries didn't last as long anymore. I had wanted to get the DJI mini 3 pro for 3 main reasons.

  1. It's so small and portable that it makes it so easy to pack up and travel with. Plus since it's under 250 grams if/when I travel internationally I should have any issues flying my drone.

  2. I love the battery life! With past drones, you could get maybe 10-12 minutes of flight time. 15-20 in really optimal weather. With this new drone I can get just over 30 minutes so with 3 batteries I have more than enough flight time.

  3. I love having a camera that can rotate and shoot in both horizontal and vertical modes. Social media is such an important part of photo and video work so being about to shoot how I need is a BIG plus.

I've had this drone for a few weeks and while I haven't had a chance to fly it all that much just yet, I do plan on traveling a lot more in 2023 and using this drone to shoot some awesome content and I plan to share as much as I can with all of you here.
