For filmmakers, DJI drones have changed the environment completely and have become an absolute necessity.
At the heart of this is the DJI Inspire 2, which can be integrated with the top class X7 and X5S cinematic cameras.
Indeed, industry professionals admit that this combination has transformed the landscape for film and media production.
Take Phil Crothers, Director of Film and Co-founder of Pivotal. He has used the Inspire 2 and X7/X5S to shoot jaw-dropping scenes for big-hitters like Netflix, WarnerMedia, the BBC, ITV and Channel 4.
His verdict: “In terms of safety, operational capability and image capture, it is really hard to beat the DJI Inspire 2 drone with the X5S or X7 cameras.”
When it comes to film and media, drones have it all. Able to shoot smooth and crisp footage, they help producers and journalists push the boundaries of what was previously possible, capturing remarkable aerial shots and unique angles - quickly and easily.
Thanks to their portability, quality and flexibility, drones enable filmmakers to shoot dolly shots or complicated crane shots in minutes - a technique which would previously have taken many hours of setting up heavy equipment and costing the production thousands of pounds.
Drones also enhance safety - removing the need for human intervention to shoot complicated or hard-to-reach shots, and provide the chance to recce a location before the crew moves in.
As Crothers concludes: “Drones have become a key tool for every filmmaker.”
