The most recent release of a high-resolution drone camera was by the video camera maker company- GoPro. The drone shots super high definition videos from the air. Here is a list of segment where drone cameras are being used widely –

1. Military Reconnaissance



    The primary use of drone cameras is for military reconnaissance. During World War 1 and world war two, pilots had to fly over long distances to take photos of enemy camps. Many planes were shot down, and capable men were lost as a result. As soon as unmanned vehicles were developed, cameras were fitted onto them, and they replaced manned aircraft. The military can now record videos and take photos of battlefields and minus the risk of any causalities. Drone cameras have however gotten a bad reputation in the recent years because they enable mass killings of people in different countries with little accountability. The humanitarian issues arising from this have caused people to lose faith in the governments that conduct their military and surveillance operations using drone cameras.

    2. Filmmaking

      Drone cameras are used in filmmaking to enable the capture of beautiful aerial views of natural and human-made environments that would be otherwise impossible to do with a camera crew. The video footages are used in the scenes of films. They inspire awe to their audience and shoot up the sale of movies made through this innovative form of videography. Various kinds of industries like Real Estate, Automobiles, Advertisement & even the digital marketing industry is becoming fan of drone photography. Bloggers are also going crazy & using drone photographs to create an eye friendly blog post to lure their follower-ship & audience.


      3. Scientific Observation Of Wildlife And Nature

        Studying the behavior of wildlife could be cumbersome because animals always run off when there is human interference of their natural habitats. Drone cameras have made an observation of wildlife easier and efficient. Flying drones through forests and natural reserves captures the types of vegetation and the movement of wild animals for purposes of scientific recording and study.

        4. In Agriculture



          Farmers can use drone cameras to check on the condition of their crops and to track down their cattle. The use of drone cameras in the agricultural sector has made it unnecessary to walk through vast fields to assess crops yield. They simply inspect the videos and pictures from drone cameras to retrieve this information. As a result, they save time and workforce.

          Accessibility Of Drones

          Drones are becoming widely accessible to consumers because of their affordability and their relevance in many professions and hobbies. They are the equipment of choice for freelance photographers as they can offer stunning photography. A cheap camera drone and some video editing software might be all you need to kick-start your journey of discovery. Today one could buy a drone over a product bidding site such as Amazon and eBay for as little as $299. These help businesses and individuals get awesome aerial shots that they can put to use for artistic or commercial purposes.

          The Future Of Drone Cameras



            The potential of drone cameras is so broad and untapped. The Business Insider estimates that up to 12% of 98$ Billion of global spending would be directed on aerial drones for commercial purposes over the next decade. This means that companies are adapting to drone camera technology and trying to find ways to fit it in the consumer culture.

            The biggest factor likely to impact how the drone camera industry develops is regulation on privacy and safety. The law restricts all surveillance of populations and individuals for any purposes by drone cameras, and it would most probably remain so for the next so many years to come.

            Create an Eye-Catching Logo to Focus Your Brand

            We live in a world where brands surround us. We recognize companies through their logo designs rather than their service or products. Our philosophy is that if it’s a brand, it means it’s good. Why? Because it’s known and recognized by all. Youngsters prefer to wear Nike or Reebok footwear, even if there are the same designs in local companies, just because they will be easily recognized as branded by their friends and family.

            A logo is a statement of a business or a company and a sign of individuality, which distinguishes one brand from another. Even a child would recognize the M of the McDonalds, even from far away. The people use the logo to associate with the brand or the company.

            Gauge the Market

            Study your business or company and see the competitor company’s logo designs. Know the business in and out and write down all the important points and use them to create a related logo design.


            Conduct research about the client and customers and the target market. What is the business about? If the products cater to children then create a colorful and lively logo, while if it is for corporate parties, then create a formal and attractive logo.


            Link It

            Whatever logo you design, keep in mind that it should relate to the company and the nature of business. The logo is used to recognize the brand, so it should have connections with the company’s history and future.

            Use Resources

            There are some applications available for you to download and create a perfect logo. You can use the variety of samples and tweak it a bit to your liking by changing the colors or font.


            Font and Colors

            Always make sure to use bold and striking colors. Study the color therapy and what affect each color has on the onlookers. Choose bright colors for an attractive and appealing logo design. Use creative fonts so that it instantly hooks up the customers.


            Learn Photoshop, Adobe, and Illustrator for that eye-catching logo design. Create a customized logo design with abstracts and images, or choose a picture. You can also make use of solid shapes or go with a flow and retro design. A tagline or your company name or your name initials can also be a logo design. Just incorporate it in a unique way, so it stands out from the others.

            The logo is a signature of your brand; it is one of the company’s most valuable assets. A well-designed logo is the one that exposes your business and communicates your message to the public.  Designing an eye-catching logo is not that simple as it sounds; it demands a lot of creative imagination and out of box thinking.  Whatever logo you design, ask your friends and family to view and ask them their suggestions and change and set it accordingly, as they represent the public.
