Aerial photography drone recommendation 2022

Whether you are a drone photography enthusiast or a drone photography service company, the first thing you should consider is the performance of the drone, such as the flight time, the pixels of the drone camera, the quality of the captured images, etc. Timing prices, after all not everyone can afford an expensive drone.

Here are our recommendations for the best learning and easy-to-use aerial photography drone  on the market today.

DJI Mini 2

DJI Mini 2

Price $568.00

DJI have established themselves as the ‘go-to’ drone manufacturer for enthusiasts and professionals alike, so it was no surprise when we tested the DJI Mini 2 and found it to be not just one of the best drones for beginners, but for the money one of the most complete packages all round.

The DJI app works well, everything functions excellently without glitches, and we were up and running in less than 10 minutes – saving 4K video and 12MB images to an microSD.

The built-in gimbal works really well and we were also impressed with the flying time – nearly 30 minutes of continuous use.

Parrot ANAFI

Parrot ANAFI

Price: $893.00

Parrot are well-known in the commercial and industrial drone operation world, creating devices for security, surveillance and search and rescue teams around the world.

The ANAFI is their first offering for the consumer market however, and we weren’t disappointed.

When compared to the DJI offering it is more expensive, but the stats put this drone at a level well above most beginner options, offering commercial-grade specifications like wind gust resistance up to 80kph.

Suitable for beginners but perfect for those getting into becoming more experienced, too.

DJI Mavic Mini

DJI Mavic Mini


Although superseded by the DJI Mini 2, we think the Mavic Mini still holds its own, and is a slightly cheaper drone allowing you to get the benefits of DJI’s excellent ergonomics, design and usability. It lacks some of the tech features of more recent drones, and doesn’t have 4K video, but for those getting into the drone market this is still a worthwhile purchase.

Of course if you are a Aerial photography drone service company, you need a industrial drone like
