Starting from scratch
Starting with a small and pocket friendly drone camera for your entry level training is recommended, as you may crash most of the time though it looks easy. The hardware malfunction is one of the common reasons for the crash. Once you have hands on the controls go for the better one like DJI’s phantom line.

The device has its own limitations and the perimeter over which you may fly might have an anti-drone board too, which means drones aren’t allowed in those specific areas.
Now let’s talk something about how to and what guidelines should be followed while taking some aerial pictures and videos.
- Always shoot at with low ISO to avoid noise in image.
- Set your white balance before you roll out as ignoring it may produce color shift while flying.
- Use neutral density filters to achieve slow shutter speed on a sunny day, and light coming into the camera should be controlled, and that exactly what ND filter does.
- Check the battery levels before it takes the flight.
- Calibrate the compass at every new location.
