1. Types of Photographs

The kinds of photography you want to take (still image, dynamic image, etc) determines which drone is the right one for you. Different kinds of photographs require different camera properties.

For instance, if you want to shoot photos or videos for the professional outdoor activities, such as sailing, racing, horse racing or skiing, you may need a digital single lens reflex camera which will allow you to focus and shoot in less than 0.2 seconds.

What's more, if you just want to take some aerial photographs for hobby and interest, an action camera will be a good option for you to choose.

2. Quality of the images

The image quality is another factor that we need to take into consideration. Of course, a high pixel count camera is good for high-definition photos and videos.

Professional aerial photography requires your drone to be equipped the ability to take high definition images.

On the contrary, if you are just shooting for interest, we would like to suggest you buy a common one with less features.

3. Level of technical ability

No matter how advanced the camera performance, it counts for nothing if you don't know how to operate it well.

Similarly, if you don't have sufficient RC flying skill, you will have a higher chance of crashing the drone and damaging it – along with the camera.

Choose the camera based on your own skill level.

4. Price and affordability

It is an undeniable fact that price is always a consideration when you are making a purchase.

Choosing one camera that is high quality and is available at a low price is the best possible option.

However, the price is often inconsistent with its quality. Here we highly recommend you balance the quality and affordability before purchasing.
