DJI Phantom 4 for Wedding Films

I am always looking for new ways to make our wedding films more epic and interesting. In the past few years we’ve added sliders and a flyer, and they’ve added some nice touches to our films. Now I’m looking at taking it to the next level and I’m looking at the DJI Phantom 4 for wedding films. 

DJI Phantom 4 for Wedding Films

If you watch most commercials or any big budget film, you will see some kind of wide high flying shot. This are great for setting the scene and showing off the entire environment. If we purchased a drone, we could use it to capture a high shot of the venue, the ceremony, or the couple interacting. These shots are really impossible without a drone and will separate us from the rest.

The DJI Phantom 4 has some other features that are really interesting. One, it shoots 4k. That’s higher resolution than all of my other cameras, so the quality would be amazing. It also has a feature where it can follow or do circles around something. This would be really cool for a first look or the bride coming down the aisle. Besides that it comes with a remote and you can see what the video looks like on your phone as you go. It also has some built in features that keep it from crashing, which I would need since I’m not an expert.

This would be a pretty big expense if I was only using it for wedding films, but it could also be used in other areas. I know this would take my real estate game up a notch, but I think I could also use this for portraits. Imagine an engagement photo from that high above; that would be awesome. If I can figure out enough ways to use the DJI Phantom 4 for wedding films and other areas, I might pull the trigger and get one. For now, I’m just going to wait and think about it.
