If you are satisfied with your iPhone’s images, then you don’t have to invest a fortune into getting a professional camera or a super expensive drone. Just pair the iPhone with your drone, and you will be fine. Following, we are giving you some tips you should mind if you are going to take snaps with the iPhone attached to a drone:
Image Quality is Crucial
If you know how to use a compare, you will know that sensors affect the image quality. It also applies to aerial photography drones. In the drone market, a 1” sensor is becoming the new standard by consumer drones. But since you are using your iPhone, you don’t have to worry about the camera quality; your phone will suffice.
So that you know, a larger CMOS sense makes it easy to shoot high-quality snaps even in low light. But unless you shoot or fly at night, you don’t have to worry about that.
Hen it comes to take a picture with a drone, you need to ask whether you need 4K Content or not? If you are clogging and you want to shoo a cinematic video, then yes you can use 4K. But if you are only taking snaps for social media, then 1080P will suffice.
Video editing decreases footage resolution thanks to cropping, rotating and scaling. If you have 1080p source material, then the result will not be as sharp as you would like. 4K gives you extra pixels to work with.
When shooting in 4k, mind the FPS. This dictates how many unique images your camera handles in every second. If you want smooth footage, then you need 24-30 frames per second. But if you want special effects like slow motion, then you will need to go to 60 frames per second or more.
RAW and DNG Support
If you don’t do any post-production editing work, then you might ignore this one. However, every photographer edits their snaps in one way or another. If your iPhone is capable of shooting in RAW/DNG snaps, it will let you tackle some editing in post-production.
This is rather helpful if you are shooting during nighttime. This format is ideal for aerial photographers.
