9 Me, with a camera-equipped DJI Phantom, in Iceland Any camera can be strapped onto a drone and put into the air, but it’s much better when a camera has the following three characteristics: • Low weight • Live video output • Remote shutter control Obviously, the heavier a consumer drone is, the shorter the flying time and less maneuverable it is. The lighter the camera, the better. A live video output (live view) allows an operator to see what the camera sees, in real time. Without live view, framing pleasing shots from a drone is almost impossible.

The lighter the camera, the better. A live video output (live view) allows an operator to see what the camera sees, in real time. Without live view, framing pleasing shots from a drone is almost impossible. Finally, a remote shutter release interface is desirable so an operator can decide when to take pictures instead of having a camera shoot all the time (video) or in intervalometer mode (stills), which yields a lot of extra media to go through at the end of every flight. Professional cameras such as RED cameras and high-end SLRs are used in the air carried by heavy-lift octocopters, but the vast majority of aerial images and video are captured using either GoPros (and other action cameras) or drones that include integrated cameras.

This is usually enough to scare a lot of people away. Integrated Aerial Cameras GoPros and action cams work well on consumer drones, but their main benefits are their small size and low weight, not their functionality, when mounted on drones. Most people who use GoPro cameras in the air use the “set-and-forget” method of camera control, starting recording at the beginning of the flight and letting the camera run until landing. This is because GoPro has only recently started to open its HERO bus interface to third-party integrators.
