It wasn’t long ago that drones still seemed like something straight out of a sci-fi movie, spying on the population to keep them in line. Now they’re everywhere and are being used for lots of different applications, especially by businesses. If you’re unfamiliar with drones and aerial technology, then read on to find out more about what they can be used for and why they’re so popular.
Uses of aerial technology
Drones aren’t just good for military and government uses any longer. With their ability to capture high-quality photos and video, there are plenty of commercial applications for this kind of technology. Here are a few ideas:
There are lots more possibilities for drones and aerial photography, but just imagine having your wedding photos taken from the sky in addition to regular photography. Or imagine the different angles filmmakers could achieve using drones.
Benefits of aerial technology
You might be thinking, what’s wrong with regular photography? Or haven’t we been taking aerial photos for decades with helicopters? True, but drones have really revolutionized the field with their compact size and flexibility. Let’s look at some key advantages of using drones.
Versus traditional photography
Compared to traditional photography, drones allow you to get a brand new perspective and reach heights and angles that photographers could only dream of. This opens up much more scope for getting the perfect, unique shot. It also allows you to access more angles, if you’re photographing a house, for example, that you wouldn’t be able to reach from the ground.
Versus aerial photography
Drones might not be the cheapest option for cameras on the market, but compared to other tools for taking aerial photos and video, i.e. helicopters, they are much more affordable. They also have much more versatility thanks to their size and agility. This means that they can get into tight spots that helicopters wouldn’t be able to – between tall trees, for example. They are also much quieter than helicopters, so the noise they make won’t interfere with video footage or disrupt people or animals in the area.
