Intro to Aerial Photography and Filmmaking

The use of small robots to capture scenes that were previously unattainable is evolving. Drones are used for assignments for every brand across the boards these days — National Geographic, the BBC, Microsoft and countless clothes. The industry grows rapidly and the machines get smaller, cheaper, and easier to use. Here at Moment, we deeply appreciate that these intricate machines are becoming more accessible, easier to use, and affordable for the everyday enthusiast. However, purchasing gear to help attain a clean, cinematic look with your drone photos and footage takes the right tools. Below are some of our favorite must-haves when out and about flying our mini helicopter around for optimal results.

The Mavic Air 2 is THE drone to have if you’re into aerial photography. It's an almost-pocket-sized drone that captures stunning 48MP images... that's double the image quality of the Mavic 2 Pro and our new favorite drone for photography. If that's not enough, it's also packed with 4K 60FPS video and DJI’s 3 axis gimbal technology gives you the smoothest, most buttery footage. Simply put, it’s a fantastic drone at an affordable price!

The helipad that does more. Like a changing mat for your surf session, the landing pad acts as a mobile work surface for setting up your drone and all the parts that come with it. When you’re ready to fly, it allows you to take off and land your drone with ease, in any type of terrain. It’s rugged construction prevents any dust, snow, dirt, or debris from coming in contact with the drone during takeoff and landing. And its thin, foldable design allows it to pack up and travel in any bag. Throw it down, set up your rig, let it fly.

Available as a 2-5 stop or 6-9 stop, our Cine Variable ND filters are the secret sauce to controlling your exposure on your drone. Made with premium Fused Silica Glass, these filters are crisp edge to edge without color fringing or cross polarizing. By using aerospace-grade aluminum we were able to cut unnecessary weight out of the filter body in order to maintain peak gimbal functionality. Precision machined grip provides easy control over your filter strength and easy removal from the drone. Made to shoot on the go, the filters also feature hard stops at both ends of the range to prevent unwanted cross polarization for the cleanest image possible.
