Show us your drone photos and videos

Got any drone photos and videos to share? Showcase them here!

What equipment are you using? Do you prefer videos or photos?

Here's my first real attempt at drone videos, taken while at Phang Nga Bay near Phuket, Thailand:


Also some drone footage at the end of this:

I'm using a DJI Phantom 4, which can be bought here (my affiliate link): http://click.dji.com/g82xl9US_gfnUI9L?pm=link

Hey for those with the DJI 4... How do you travel with it? Will it fit in a carry on?

DJI sells a separate backpack which can be taken on carry on and easy to use. Two options in fact.

I put mine in check-in with the case it comes in - works fine too.

On that note, anyone have the DJI Osmo as well?

Wow your Videos are great!

Did you have to do much color correction, etc. or just cut & music?

Thinking about getting a DJI Phantom 4 too…

Thanks so much! I'm still trying to really figure out the Osmo in terms of stabilisation, smooth track etc - so still a bit jumpy or too quick in some points. I've done a series of Osmo videos, only 1 Phantom video.

I trained the basics for Final Cut Pro and reckon I'd be quite comfortable with it. I don't have a Mac though, and Adobe Premiere's graphic user interface freaked me out the first time I opened it.

So, all my videos are edited on Windows Movie Maker believe it or not! Just cut and add music - no colour correction etc.

You should get the Phantom 4 - not flown anything easier yet!

I would be so p*$$ed when my neighbor was flying a drone is such a quiet place.
Do you request permission when you fly yours?

Yes, as well as where I intend to fly to. No permission required at Phang Nga Bay.
