If you observe some pictures or videos taken from above, you’ll notice that the clarity and details portrayed are so close that you will know they were not taken from a plane. Chances are, you are probably looking at a picture shot from a drone. Drones are among the most enjoyable new photo taking equipment in the recent past. And flying these multi-rotor, radio-controlled airplane is nearly as fascinating because the pictures they are able to deliver.

Latest breakthroughs in flight controllers and aircraft stabilizers have gave the opportunity for nearly everyone to strap a good digital camera into a drone, forward it up to the sky for capture, and send it back to the planet without hassle (usually).

Often known as quadcopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), multi-rotors, and octocopters, these reasonably cost-effective aircraft provide photography that used to be, until recently, extremely hard at any cost. They are in a position to fly outdoors, even during minor wind flow, and quite often in enclosed indoor spots, as well. With the wide range of drones available out there, the DJI Phantom 3 is the latest in town. It has a camera of 12 megapixels which enables one to take high quality pictures with beautiful resolutions and vivid colors. These features enable us to snap such great quality footages that will fit into our big screens, in locations/landscapes that are not easily accessible without us having to climb mountains or trees and stand the risk of acquiring injuries in the process.

Below is a list of other photography drones popularly used in recent times. They have several features too, that might be of great importance for various use cases.
