Every year or so, since we began covering drones, we have witnessed vast improvements in drone technology taking place almost on a routine basis. Nowhere are the improvements more impressive than in the case of the best drones for sale with camera.
Here, we review some of the best quadcopters that have consistently delivered top performance and made drone photography accessible to the general public. So, read on for more on the best drones for sale with camera.
Parrot has followed up on the extraordinary success of Parrot A.R. with the equally remarkable Parrot Bebop. Parrot Bebop is a very powerful quadcopter, which comes with fabulous new features such as a 3-axes accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, an ultrasound sensor which has a reach of 8 meters, a pressure sensor and a vertical camera. Plus, it is 8 times as powerful as Parrot A.R. Parrot Bebop is fitted with a front facing 14 MP camera with fisheye lens which offers a full 180 degree vision, so that you can pan it to the left and to the right without having to roll the quadcopter. It is also very stable and provides a steady and superior video quality. Video recording on Parrot Bebop begins automatically after takes-off.
