WRONG. Dead Wrong.
A drone is a tool - and no tool is right for every job
I've come to realize that the only people are care what drone I use are my competitors - or those who wish they were my competitors
One older gentleman (who may or may not have been intoxicated, as this was at a beer-centric event) commented,"I've owned all the DJI Phantoms. They're children's toys. Garbage. I only fly Hex and Octocopters." THANKS FOR YOUR INSIGHTFUL COMMENT. I was pretty irritated at first, but kept my mouth shut. I remember doubting myself for a moment. Was I providing my clients with something that was worth what they were paying? Did I really have any business selling my skills as an aerial photographer and videographer if I was using the lowly DJI Phantom?
The answer is yes.
Some closing thoughts
- When the master carpenter finishes his bookshelf, it doesn't matter what his tools were - the end product is what counts.
- If a $5,000 camera is placed into the hands of an amateur, the resulting photographs will not be that great.
- When a $100 guitar is placed in the hands of one of the world's best guitar players, he can make it sound amazing.
