Best prosumer camera drone

Shortlist:

  • DJI Spark
  • DJI Mavic Pro Platinum
  • DJI Phantom 4 Advanced

Runner-up: DJI Mavic Pro Platinum

Drones are becoming a popular photography tool as they allow anyone to capture high quality images from the air. All of the drones on this year's list of finalists are made by DJI, but that's not surprising given how quickly the company cranks out new models, each representing a good value in its own way.

The DJI Mavic Pro Platinum is an update to last year's Mavic Pro, which won our Editor's Choice award in 2016. It adds quieter operation, thanks to redesigned props, as well as a few more minutes of flight time. Combined with its ability to capture 4K video using a good codec, 12MP Raw image files, DJI's Active Track technology, and a folding design that makes it great for travel, the Mavic Pro Platinum gets the nod as runner-up.
