Travelling light with the DJI Mavic

The DJI Mavic is a beauty in terms of capabilities and design but the craziest thing is that it squeezes down into a small form-factor, so small it fits into a bag that is the size of a D-Slr camera. I am quite excited at the prospects of where I can take this quadcopter. Carry on luggage here we come. 

It is one of the reasons why I chose to buy it rather than another Phantom. I can grab it on the way out of the house and off we go exploring the local countryside of Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire, Dorset which are the most accessible places for us. 

I’m planning to take it to Wales and Corfu later this year. Wales is no more than a month off from now and I’m already envisaging aerial shots of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and lifeboat stations with the camera sweeping around them to reveal a jaw-dropping landscape just behind the main subject. 

I have to admit I get quite excited every time I see a drone shot on the TV and find myself trying to work out how the pilot gets such smooth shots. 

I am editing 3 videos at the moment to share in subsequent posts and then after that I will start a series of articles on some of our favourite locations around our part of the world. 

This blog originally started off as being a site about photography and finally I feel like I’m getting it back on track. 

Here are a few shots of what the Mavic drone looks like….
