Now that there’s a budding market for movie-making drones, DJI is determined to seize the moment. It’s releasing a trio of camera drones that cater to pros wanting the best possible aerial shots. The Phantom 3 4Kupgrades the regular Phantom 3 with shooting in official DCI 4K formats, and rolls in a range-extended WiFi link that lets you control the drone from much further away — 3,937 feet, to be exact. The black Inspire 1 Pro, meanwhile, gives you a high-quality 16-megapixel camera in a stealthier, more sinister-looking design. The Phantom 3 4K is relatively affordable for personal at $999, but you’ll likely have to be a full-on filmmaker to justify the Inspire 1 Pro’s $4,499 price tag.
