Photography drones have come on a long way. Remote controlled drones are now the kind of thing James Bond would be proud of. A photography drone is basically a radio controlled drone that has an onboard camera. The camera is often used to take shots of things that would be difficult or too dangerous for humans to take.
The shots you can get are often amazing. Aerial shots in particular can be inspiring with shots and video from height. As well as getting near impossible shots, some photography drones come with features that make them incredibly versatile. Features such as auto follow and obstacle avoidance mean that they can almost be set and forget devices that will shoot full length videos of the action, almost on auto pilot.
