Action Camera

When it comes to capturing the exhilarating action and scenic views of FPV (First Person View) drone flights, a high-quality action camera is absolutely crucial.

A good action camera enhances your FPV experience, recording breathtaking videos and preserving the joy and thrill of your flight.

Best Action Cameras

Several brands stand out in the arena of action cameras: GoPro, DJI, and Insta360 are leading names that have continuously set the benchmark in this market.

GoPro Cameras

GoPro cameras have become synonymous with adventure and action videography. The durability, versatility, and top-notch video quality of GoPros make them the go-to choice for many FPV drone pilots.

Another option is the ‘Naked’ GoPro, a stripped-down GoPro camera. By removing the unnecessary components and housing, the Naked GoPro offers comparable video quality to a full-sized GoPro but at a fraction of the weight. However, this comes at the expense of durability; the Naked GoPro is more susceptible to damage.

DJI Cameras

DJI has been a dominant player in the drone industry, and their action cameras are no exception. DJI is a competitive alternative to GoPro.

More notably, DJI’s latest O3 Air Unit delivers impressive video quality directly from the FPV camera.

Insta360 Cameras

Insta360 is renowned for its 360-degree cameras, which open up creative possibilities for FPV drone pilots. These cameras are light, portable, and capable of capturing ultra-stabilized video in a full 360-degree field of view.

How to Capture the Best Footage

So how can you get those awesome shots you see all over the internet?

ND filters

ND (Neutral Density) filters are like sunglasses for your camera, reducing the amount of light hitting the sensor and allowing for slower shutter speeds. This results in smoother, more cinematic footage with natural motion blur, especially useful for fast-paced FPV flights.

Post-processing

Once you’ve captured your footage, post-processing is key to turning good footage into incredible FPV videos. This can include stabilizing your footage, color grading to adjust the color and contrast for a more cinematic look, and editing your footage to get the best quality possible.

Remember, the choice of action camera ultimately depends on your specific FPV needs, preferences, and budget. But with any of these cameras on board, you’re set to get awesome FPV videos!

Embrace the adventure and record your journey – every FPV flight is a story waiting to be told! 😀
