Journalists Joining the Drone Fad

We’ve all been hearing about drones being implemented in big delivery systems, starting with Amazon and being picked up by Google soon.  They’re a huge hit, being used to make faster shipments, making customers happy.  There has been a lot of talk centered on them (i.e., Will they be accurate? Will they replace human jobs? Etc…). 

But delivery isn’t the only thing these awesome flying robots are being used for.  Journalists/Photographers are starting to jump on the wagon and utilizing these new tools to improve their work exponentially.  Having drones allows photos and videos to be taken at angles that were not possible before, and at great ease. 

The pictures can be snapped from points where a person can deem impossible to physically get to, and at heights that are too low for a helicopter to get to.  This is specifically good for journalists covering natural disasters where a lot more can be captured not only for the purpose of being shared with the public, but also in helping victims out.  Getting at a tree line height allows for some great footage. 

Reading this, you may think this sounds great, but also like a really expensive investment that can easily break if dropped or if it crashes.  On the contrary, professionals say this does not have to be the case.  There are many ways to acquire this tool without spending thousands of dollars.  So do not be swindled into investing too much. Do the research and get your drone for a couple hundred bucks and get to shooting! 

Whether you're taking photos for some intense natural disaster, or for your own pleasure, the results can be fantastic in terms of quality and positioning. 

If you’re out taking pictures or videos, don’t let your devices die!  Get a Juno Power battery here or on Amazon.
