Drone photography

Anyone using drones for photography? Which equipment do you use? What are your experiences?

Never flown a drone before. Gave in and pre-ordered a DJI Spark.

Looks like a ton of fun and small enough to travel/hike with.

I recently purchased my first drone, a DJI Phantom 4 Pro+. It was a bit pricey ($1799 w/o accessories) but I wanted the best of the best. It's very easy to fly but takes a little time if you want to master it. It gives you the opportunity to capture perspectives you wouldn't have been able to otherwise. I bought a case for it that I'm able to carry on planes when I travel, so I bring it everywhere. If you're thinking of getting one, I'd recommend a DJI drone. They are the industry leader and make a quality product. If you end up getting one and want suggestions for cases, ND filters, etc just let me know. Here's my instagram where I've posted my drone photos and videos from my first 3 months of ownership. Check it out!

I've got the P4P+ and the Mavic. Both great machines. A short vid with the Mavic in the weekend:

I recently got my Part 107 (FAA certification) for my drone so I can start using it legally for real estate/events/etc.

Some demo reels:

It's a Yuneec H Pro (hexacopter).

A friend of mine uses one all the time, but I am afraid that I will spend all that money and crash it!

DJI Mavic Pro. Super easy to carry around, shoots RAW and 4K video. I just love it!

A great 4k drone-video containing beaches, active vulcanos and mountains.
Filmed in Indonesia last August.
Drone: DJI Mavic Pro.
