The Best Drones With Cameras

DJI Drones can be very expensive so it’s crucial that you get one that fits your needs and more importantly, your budget. Drones range from £99 up to £11055 depending on which drone. The Price difference is purely in the features of the drone so for example, the £99 DJI Tello won’t have the features and specs of the DJI Matrice 30T. We have a drone for everyone.

DJI Mini 2 

The DJI Mini 2 is the second latest Mini-series drone. Just because it’s not the latest doesn’t mean that it’s a bad drone! The Mini 2 is still used by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. The DJI Mini 2 is capable of 12MP photos and 4k/30fps video or 2.7k/60fps video, this is thanks to the 1/2.3” CMOS sensor that has 12 effective megapixels.

The DJI Mini 2 is a perfect starter drone for someone looking to pursue a hobby in drones or a perfect second drone for your fleet. It is always useful for a sub 250g drone so that you have fewer restrictions and you don’t have to do an A2CofC to reduce your range to people.

The DJI Mini 2 is priced at £419.00 for just the drone or £549 for the Mini 2 with the Fly More Combo. 

DJI Mini 3 Pro 

The newest and best sub-250g drone from DJI is the Mini 3 Pro. This small drone has a 1/1.3-inch CMOS sensor that can capture 48-megapixel images and 4K video at 60 frames per second. As a result, the Mini series can now compete on quality with devices like the Mavic Air 2s.

It is DJI's super-light drone, weighing in at around 250g, which makes life for commercial drone operators much simpler by allowing it to be flown in areas where other drones cannot be flown without specific authorisation.

As this is a sub 250g drone you only need an operator ID to operate it. Legally, you have to have your Operator ID visible on the drone. You purchase an operator ID here

The DJI Mini 3 Pro is priced at £709 for the RC-N1 version or £859 for the DJI RC Version. We would recommend going with the more expensive DJI RC as you get a screen for only £149 more and in our opinion, it is well worth the extra money to not mess around with your phone and to have the screen on the controller.

DJI Mavic 3 / Mavic 3 Cine

You may start a career in aerial photography with the DJI Mavic 3. The predecessor to the DJI Mavic 2 has now been published by DJI. In the drone industry, we've reached a point where you can get a small, cinematic-quality camera. Say goodbye to carrying around heavy hard cases with the DJI Mavic 3.

The Micro 4/3 "CMOS sensor produced an amazing image. It's a tremendous upgrade over the previous Mavic, recording more data than ever before, whether you choose the cine or basic version. The 20-megapixel camera in the Mavic 3 was specially created by Swedish firm Hasselblad to make it unique. The camera has an 84-degree field of view and an aperture range of f/2.8 to f/11 for wide-angle shots.

To create a camera that can provide stunning photographs, DJI worked with Hasselblad, a renowned Swedish camera maker. The larger sensor on the Mavic 3 gives it a better dynamic range, resolution, and low-light capabilities. The 4/3 CMOS sensor also offers a significant 12.8-stop dynamic range, which enables the user to record more details in the shadows and produce images of superior quality. Vision Detection Auto Focus is another feature of the Hasselblad camera on the Mavic 3. This implies that numerous vision sensors collaborate to more quickly obtain distance information, enabling faster focus.

The DJI Mavic 3 starts for £1879 for the drone itself or £2399 for the Mavic 3 Fly More Combo.

DJI Matrice 30

The most advanced Enterprise drone from DJI is the Matrice 30 Series. The DJI M30 series is foldable making it an extremely small powerhouse of a drone.

Three sensors, a wide camera, a zoom camera, and a laser rangefinder are all included in the DJI M30. A 12MP 1/2-inch CMOS sensor on the Wide camera allows for 4k/30fps video resolution. A 48mp 1/2 inch sensor makes up the zoom camera on the Matrice 30 Series. More importantly, this sensor offers a 5x-16x Optical Zoom and a 200x Hybrid Zoom in addition to its 8k picture and 4k/fps video capabilities. With almost little image loss, the Zoom camera's power allows you to zoom in on objects that are miles away. The laser rangefinder, the last sensor, is useful for measuring distances between buildings and things in a business.

Additionally, the DJI Matrice 30T has a thermal camera, which is helpful when you need to find heat. By providing heat to clients, you can also charge more and perhaps land more jobs.

The situations you can use this drone in are one of its key benefits. With the IP55 protection and a temperature range of -20 to 50 degrees, the Matrice 30 may be used in practically any environment or weather. As the weather is out of your control, this is a significant advantage if you are called to assist a search and rescue team.

The DJI Matrice 30 Series starts at £7920 for the Worry-Free M30 Basic Combo or £11055 for the M30T Worry-Free Basic Combo.
