Video: Introducing the New DJI Phantom 3 Drone

Yesterday DJI, the leader in consumer drone production, introduced a new product to their line-up that I'm sure will be of interest to more than a few of you. The Phantom 3 brings a host of new features including better navigational features for both indoor and outdoor flights, built-in wireless video streaming to the remote, the option of broadcasting live video to YouTube, and an optional 4k camera as well. The video below was shot with the new drone and will give you an idea of what it is capable of. As you can imagine the footage is quite spectacular.

Drones are one of the best tools for aspiring filmmakers these days, and DJI keeps making nice, incremental steps forward. The Phantom 3 provides some very nice advancements over previous models, but does so at an affordable price too. The new Professional model with 4k camera costs $1260, while the standard model with an HD cam will set you back $1000.

I've been considering getting a drone for filmmaking, and this looks like a model I'd definitely be interested in. Honestly, they don't cost as much as I would've thought. The video in this article also shows what an amazing picture they can have. http://dronesetc.com
