The best drone 2021: the 12 finest camera drones you can buy

12 / 100

elcome to our guide to the world’s best drones with cameras for 2021. In this regularly updated guide you’ll find our pick of the finest drones for aerial photography and filmmaking, based on our rigorous testing. (Looking for the best beginner drone? Check out our separate guide on those).

What’s the best drone in 2021? Right now, our pick is the DJI Air 2S. It hits the sweet spot of portability and performance better than any drone out there, thanks to its folding design, capable 1-inch sensor and range of beginner-friendly flying modes. The Air 2S is the ideal choice for novices and hobbyists alike.

That said, it might not be the perfect pick for everyone. If your budget’s a bit tighter, the DJI Mini 2 is an even more compact and affordable choice for beginners. The DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0, meanwhile, remains a stable, wind-resistant option for experienced aerial filmmakers, while Powervision’s PowerEgg X is a unique waterproof option.

Lastly, it’s worth considering that Black Friday is almost here, which means we’re likely to see some impressive Black Friday drone deals throughout November. If you’re thinking of buying a drone, it’s likely worth holding fire until mid-November, when the first deals will start appearing.
