Pro Photographer's First Experience With Drones: The DJI Mavic 2 Pro

- Robert K Baggs | Fstoppers

With drone use being far more common, albeit far more regulated, most of us professional photographers are dipping our toes in the water.


I've been looking in to drones for a while. I've been put off by the relatively high cost of entry to get the sort of images I want, but more than that, the regulations surrounding them now. Last year I traveled around Iceland and at every corner, every glacier, every waterfall, there were strict "No Drones" signs. I get — I really do — but it makes it harder to warrant the purchase. That said, I'm still edging closer and closer to get more of my images on a Z axis. It also doesn't help that one of the photographers I speak to most

In this video, photographer Karl Taylor records his first impression of drone life as a self-proclaimed newbie. Unbeknownst to him, he says a lot of the right words to help my along my way with the purchasing decision. For example, he's stunned by just how easy it is to fly. The DJI Mavic 2 Pro isn't a cheap toe to dip in the new waters, but it's also not obscene enough that you can rule it out. Dangerous territory, that.
