I was one of the very early adopters of drone technology back in 2014. I quickly earned my CAA permissions that same year. I've been flying and filming ever since, from the Phantom 2 thru the DJI S1000 and now I use a Mavic 2 pro because the camera and speed of setup and safety is so much better than it was 6 years ago.
I've shot drone footage from the deepest jungles of Rwanda to Iceland and across the UK. From cruise ships along the Thames to mansions for Channel 4 TV.
As the technology has gotten smaller the safety has improved whilst the latest cameras with their 10 bit image are leagues ahead of what we were all working with 6 years ago.
