I currently shoot with the Phantom 4.
If I was to buy a new drone today, I would probably pick the Mavic for portability.
Or a P4P for the 20MP camera for when photography is more important than portability. Or both if I had the cash 😀
For photography, you don’t really need gradual filters, because as I showed in my video, get the right settings for drone photography, you should shoot bracketed. However, there are two exceptions:
A polarizing filter might be good when you are shooting water, it will reduce the flare and reflections. But it will also slightly decrease the sharpness and lower the shutter speed, which can become a problem.
When you are shooting long exposure to get smooth water, like this image, you need a ND 64 to slow down your shutter speed.
I recommend Polarpro filters which I’ve used for the past couple of years.
My bag is the Think Tank Airport Helipak Drone Backpack which is perfect for P3 and P4 / P4Pro it as I can take a ton of equipment and you can take it with you on most airlines, even Easyjet and Ryanair.
It’s not too expensive in the US, retailing at $120 on Amazon.
For some reasons it is more expensive here in the UK, at about £199 which is the price I bought it from on Amazon. But I stil don’t regret it to this day.
Having a super fast memory cards are not as important for photography as they are for videos, for which you want a fast memory card.
I use the Scandisk 64GB Extrem, they will do me an entire trip so I don’t have to worry about transfering files on my laptop every day.
I edit my images on a Macbook pro, from 2013. It’s more than enough to edit images in Photoshop.
I have a medium wacom Bamboo tablet for editing, I love it, very easy and simple to use but I wish I actually bought the small one instead, which is still more than enough to do edits.
On location I will take an external hard drive, generally a 2TB from Lacie, because they are well built, and won’t break easily.

For Software, I use Lightroom and Photoshop, and Nik Collection.
