About a year or so ago, my cousin shared aerial images of his new patio and backyard. The photos were amazing quality and incredibly close up that I couldn’t believe they were from an airplane. That’s because they weren’t. They were from his drone. Then this past summer I saw images of local flooding as well as photos from one of the holiday parades. All of it had me in awe. I don’t know what kinds of units were used but they are a far cry from the inexpensive units that we purchased several years ago. Technology has come a long way. It makes me want one to be able to use for when the kids are in outdoor activities like Riverfront Pops Concert or something with the marching band.
The DJI Global Mavic Mini supports 12MP aerial photos and 2.7K Quad HD videos. Wonder how long it will stay in the air before you need to think about it? Up to 30 minutes with a fully charged battery. The Mavic Mini’s weight allows it to stay in the air longer than similar products. Accessorize your Mavic Mini with the Two-Way Charging Hub. You’ll be able to charge up to three batteries in sequence, use it to store batteries and multi-task it as a power bank for your mobile device.
If you’re concerned with how to maneuver it and whether you can create your own quality images and videos, it’s designed for ease of use. The Mavic Mini’s dedicated remote controller maintains an HD, low-latency video feed at a distance of up to 4 km. Detachable control sticks can be easily stored inside the remote controller for added portability. High quality, professional-looking videos are only a few clicks away. Select a pre-programmed option and the Mavic Mini will execute an elaborate preset motion while recording. You can even upload to social media on the fly!
You may start by using it for a couple specific purposes but will likely discover new ways to use it once you get the hang of it. The DJI Global Mavic Mini is available at Best Buy and is sure to be a hit with the outdoor enthusiast, photo fanatic or social media junkie in your family.
