Art edi­tor An­drew Beswick says: 2016 was the year that drones re­ally came of age. Pre­vi­ously they could be seen by some as a risky in­vest­ment, but the lat­est models are safe, re­li­able and ac­tu­ally not that ex­pen­sive. My pick of the bunch is the Phan­tom 4 Pro from mar­ket lead­ers DJI. Its cam­era can record 4K footage and it has a max­i­mum flight time of 30mins - more than enough to get some amaz­ing aerial photography. The Phan­tom 4 has a top speed of 72 Km/h and can cap­ture 20-megapixel stills from the Ex­mor CMOS sen­sor. With tech­nol­ogy built in to help the drone sense (and avoid) ob­sta­cles, it’s not hard to see why pho­tog­ra­phers are snap­ping these up quickly. Aerial photography used to be the reserve of the rich who could af­ford he­li­copters, but this drone brings that ex­cit­ing genre of photography to ev­ery­body.

The Phan­tom 4 is a speedy drone that shoots 4k.
