“The best camera is the one you have with you.” – Jay Maisel

Professional photography rhymes with state-of-the-art equipment. Shooting stunning images with a camera’s pro settings is second nature for a photographer. However, what is intriguing is that more and more photography specialists are adding easy-to-use compact cameras to their gear. It’s important to have excellent lighting conditions and a camera with expert settings, but it’s also important to have a camera that can be used instantaneously. We all know that when it comes to photography, timing is everything and being ready at the right moment is not something you can take for granted.

This is why a substantial number of photographers are turning to compact solutions. In June this year, Parrot launched ANAFI, the drone dubbed ‘the photographer’s companion’. ANAFI is an ultra-compact quadcopter that weighs only 320g and can be deployed in under 25 seconds. With its professional photo settings, you can use ANAFI in all surroundings.

The ANAFI drone comes with a smart battery that has a 25-minute flight time, one of the longest for a drone if its size. Sometimes it can take a while to get that perfect shot, which is why this Parrot quadcopter can be charged on the go using a smartphone, computer or power bank.

ANAFI is an innovative marvel for photography

ANAFI provides a new vantage point with a camera that tilts 180° vertically, enabling you to take spectacular shots of a monument from all angles.

Thanks to its 21 million pixel Sony® CMOS sensor, combined with the powerful Ambarella® processor and the extreme precision of its ASPH f/2.4 low-dispersion optics, ANAFI takes images with lifelike details and colors.

Taking natural shots, even in difficult lighting conditions is a breeze. ANAFI features a 2.8X lossless zoom, enabling you to capture intricate details from the sky; a feat that is almost impossible by any other means. This drone is also one of the quietest on the market so you can get closer to wildlife without scaring the animals away.

ANAFI presents a wide range of creative possibilities giving you full control over the camera settings; ISO, shutter speed, white balance and color.

ANAFI is capable of shooting impressive photos and is so lightweight that you can put it in your bag and take it on all your outings and escapades. Even if it’s just a picnic with your friends in the park.
