Apple improves its iPhone cameras every year. However, until Cupertino’s geeks figure out how to make the device levitate, there are some things it simply cannot achieve, such as capturing aerial footage. That’s where a dual-camera drone like the Ninja Dragon Alpha Z Pro comes in handy.

During our December Deal of the Day event, you can get a Ninja Dragon Alpha Z Pro for $79.99, but this price drop is only available today.

Another year, another iPhone. And another camera upgrade. But no matter how much Apple upgrades its cameras, its phones will never shoot aerial footage.

That’s where camera drones come in handy. They can give you sweeping sky views that you can control from an iPhone app. And this dual-drone bundle by Ninja Dragon is on sale for $149.99 (regularly $398). Yup, that’s two dual-camera drones for $150.

The iPhone 14 Pro is raising the bar for on-the-go photography, but unless Apple adds propellers in next year’s models, you’re going to have to search somewhere else for a new camera perspective. That road might lead you to the Ninja Dragon Storm X, a drone with a dual 4K camera setup that’s easy to fly, even if you’ve never touched the controls before.

It offers simple flight controls so you can easily capture crisp 4K footage. And it’s on sale for $85.99 (regularly $169) for a limited time.

An issue amateur drone pilots face taking photos or shooting footage is that the drone itself often shows up in the shot. Then, if they want to make that aerial photography perfect, they — or someone they pay — has to edit the drone out afterwards.

Insta360 said Tuesday it solved that problem with it’s new Sphere, a 360-degree camera specially designed to keep the drone “invisible.”

DJI launched its newest consumer drone Tuesday, the compact and lightweight Mini Pro 3. It’s just light enough so you don’t have to register it with the Federal Aviation Administration. Folded up, it fits in the palm of your hand.

And it packs features associated with bigger, pricier drones, like a 48MP camera, 4K 60fps video and obstacle sensing.

Would you buy a drone just to take selfies? Now you can.

If you take selfie photos constantly, maybe you’re ready to move beyond smartphone camera timers and selfie sticks for your pics. Is it time to start dabbling in aerial photography?

Sure, why not. Especially if Snapchat’s second-ever piece of hardware finds an audience when it goes on sale.

Snapchat’s parent company, Snap, unveiled a drone called “Pixy” last week. It said the little flying camera is designed for taking selfies.
