You could say the drones for professionals are designed specifically for cinematographic purposes that require angel-angel shooting that is difficult to do without help. In order to satisfy the desire of these professional cinematographers, drone companies usually will make drones with a more expensive price, heavier, and certainly provide more photos and video.
Here is a list of the best drones for professionals:
- DJI Inspire 2
This drone is at the top because of the myriad of extraordinary things attached to it. DJI with the technology managed to bring Inspire 2 to be able to record video with quality up to 5.2K with CinemaDNG resolution 5280 x 2972.
Plus, this drone is capable of flying so fast but remains stable. Inspire 2 is capable of flying from a speed of 0 km / h to 50 km / h in 5 seconds. In addition, there are many plus points on this drone like the ability to fly in cold weather, the dual battery that can take it to fly up to 27 minutes, until the camera can be upgraded to DJI Zenmuse X5R.
The professional drones are also equipped with VPS either front or rear, an infrared sensor to scan the obstacles on it, and the obstacle sensing system capable of working in all flight modes it has.
Minus value owned by Inspire 2 is that you need to spend deeper to get activation key so CinemDNG and Apple ProRes able to record video with quality 5.2K. Not to mention, you also need a very good computer to process the video results.
- Matrice 600 Pro
This Hexacopter is made for cinematographers who want to record movies using a variety of cameras such as, DSLR, Red Epic Camera, Hasselblad Camera, and even using DJI Zenmuse Cameras. This drone is spiked with separate dreads that can be used to install various cameras with a maximum weight of up to 6kg camera.
DJI Matrice 600 Pro is equipped with A3 Pro flight controller, Lightbridge, and can be operated by using DJI GO application. It takes at least 6 batteries to operate Matrice 600.
The thing that puts DJI Matrice 600 Pro under Inspire 2 is that in Matrice there is no obstacle sensing system, its size is too big, and it takes a little more time to assemble this drone if you are not experienced
- DJI Inspire 1 v.2.0 RAW
This drone is the first professional drone created by DJI. Version 2.0 of this drone is a development with larger motors and longer landing gear to accommodate the use of 4/3 X5R microcamera. That is, you can record video with 4K quality with bitrate 1.7 Gbps – 2.4 Gbps.
The drone is also equipped with VPS, Dual GPS, and GLONASS for more stable flights. DJI Inspire 1 can also be operated with two controllers simultaneously.
The minus value that puts it under Inspire 2 is that it has a short flight time of about 18 minutes, and Inspire 1 does not have an obstacle-sensing system similar to Inspire 2.
- PowerVision PowerEye
If you think that the best drone for professionals is filled with DJI production drones, you’re not quite right. In the fourth drone professional is filled by drones from relatively new companies in the unmanned aircraft industry.
Carrying the name PowerEye, this drone turned out to have impressive features. The 4K Drone is equipped with a Pansonic Lumix G camera with a 14mm f / 2.5 lens that can be replaced with other microlenses.
The Reddot Award winner for this design product category also has a VPS and sonar system that helps it fly indoors. PowerEye can also be controlled using dual controllers and has a long flight time.
The thing that puts it under professional DJI drone is the bit rate of PowerEye which is only 60 Mbps with MP4 file format, MOV, MPEG-4AVC / H.264
