Mobile devices are becoming increasingly capable of helping us find our inner artist and any upcoming photographer can take their next step forward with the launch of the SELFLY camera drone.
The SELFLY is a small, lightweight flying drone that fits on the back of your phone (via its custom phone case) and takes pictures from a distance to give you new perspectives on your subject matter.
The drone has a 5MP camera which is capable of shooting 720p HD images and recording video at 20fps with both the drone controls and photo processing controlled through its companion AEE SELFLY app.
Aside from being compatible with both Android and iOS devices, the SELFLY cameras drone has a host of features that make it perfect for taking pictures including:
- To ensure your subject is always the focal point of the picture, the drone’s camera has both face recognition software and a “follow me” mode to ensure that you always capture the right target in the photo.
- Weighing in at just 64g, the drone is extremely lightweight making it easy to store on the back of your phone and easy to maneuver in the air at all times.
- Whilst it doesn’t replace action drones, the drone has a range of 10-15m from the operating smartphone and can fly for up to 5 minutes at a time with an estimated battery life of 35 minutes.
It isn’t often that you can carry a drone on your smartphone so the SELFLY camera drone is the perfect tool for any keen photographer looking to embrace their creative endeavors.
