Inexpensive, capable, consumer drones have “taken off,” creating what can only be described as drone mania amongst a diverse range of potential users. Because camera-carrying drones still in point of fact only exist on the edge between hobby and the mainstream, there is still a large number of confusion about what these small drones are capable of doing. This video is for anyone who wants to discover ways to capture photos or videos from the new perspectives unlocked by freedom of camera movement in the vertical dimension.
After watching the video, users will know how to safely operate a drone and will be guided in the basic training necessary to transform an accomplished operator. They’re going to get best-practice techniques on topics such as gear, pre-flight preparation, maintenance, camera settings and capturing, flying basics and controls, flight modes, cinematic shooting, and much more.
The video is wrapped in a unique interface that permits you to jump to any topic and also bookmark individual sections for later review. The unique Watch & Work mode shrinks the video into a small window to mean you can work alongside as you view the video. A pre-flight checklist and links to videos are included on the disc. At the end of every lesson, you’ll test your knowledge by taking interactive quizzes.
