For a long time the conventional wisdom regarding cellphones was that they would just continue getting smaller and smaller. It seems like we’re in a similar moment with drones. As technology has gotten more refined, drones – and price-tags – have shrunk. Take DJI’s Mavic, for example.
Don’t let the small package fool you. While this may be able to fold down and fit into your palm for easy transportation – it packs all of the features you’d expect from DJI. The self stabilizing camera has the ability to shoot 4K video at 30 frames per second, or 1080p at 96 fps so you can capture all of your adventures in the highest quality possible. Want to grab some stills? The Mavic offers up 12 megapixel shots in the RAW file format. As for controlling the drone, this one comes with automatic takeoff and landing, as well as something brand new; gesture control. According to DJI you will be able to snap selfies and do other things with just the movement of your arms or hand. To top it all off, the drone comes with other features that are becoming increasingly standard like subject tracking and obstacle avoidance. Get yours in mid October for $1,000. [Purchase]
