Product Description:

Inexpensive, capable, consumer drones have hit the market recently, creating what can only be described as drone mania amongst a diverse range of potential users. Because camera-carrying drones still really only exist on the edge between hobby and the mainstream, there is still a lot of confusion about what these small drones are capable of doing. The decision to purchase one is just the first in a long stream of things a new (potential) owner must think about. This book aims to answer these questions and be the definitive guide to aerial photography and videography using consumer drones.

 

Topics in the book include equipment required, tips on how to get started, a pilot training tutorial, aerial imaging techniques, and post-shoot workflow. The drones used in the book are DJI Phantoms, which are by far the most mature and popular in their space, but all of the instruction will be presented so that any drone owner can easily follow along.

 

Sample videos taken from a camera-carrying drone are included, as well as pre-flight checklists and worksheets for flight training.

 

Review:

“Eric is perhaps the most dedicated envelope-pusher I’ve ever met when it comes to equipment and technology. You couldn’t ask for a better field guide to this new frontier.”

—From the Foreword by Adam Savage, co-producer and co-host of Mythbusters on Discovery Channel

 

 

“Essential reading for anyone curious about consumer quads, especially all my family and friends who can't stop asking about my funky flying camera. ”

—Norman Chan, editor of Tested.com

 

 

“… the ultimate guide for aerial imaging.  From techniques, to demystifying gear, to understanding the regulatory environment, this is essential reading for new and experienced operators alike.”

—Gregory McNeal, JD/PhD co-Founder of AirMap, Professor of Law and Public Policy at Pepperdine University, contributor to Forbes.com

 

 

“Drones dramatically change the way we think about film and photography, allowing for the capture of completely new perspectives. Eric leads you down a path of getting to know this new language; it’s thrilling and beautiful.”

—Damian Kulash, Jr., lead singer of OK Go and music video director

 

 

“Aerial photography has been overly complicated ever since cameras were first introduced to DIY drones. Eric delivers a much needed introduction to give you the best possible start in the craft.”  

—Austin Furey, marketing manager, Flite Test
