Drone photography and videography is being increasingly used to showcase hotel facilities. It is critical to generate high quality photos and videos to build a sustainable business in this space.
So does the entry level, DJI Mavic fit the bill? We suggest considering better, higher end options. The GoPro sensor that comes with the Mavic is not ideal for generating quality content. If you do not have a higher budget at the moment, we suggest graduating to higher grade equipment at the earliest. Thanks to Tawn for the question. Fly Safe!
Also, we highly recommend checking out the Lume Cube, a killer external flash and video light. This 1500 Lumen LED is waterproof, has a run time of up to 2.5 hours and is the ideal portable lighting solution.
