Loving my Air 2s but what is missing is options. Its great if you want to shoot wide angle but what I want is a field of view half as wide which would allow me be be further away and flatten the perspective on photos. I'm in the US so flying a heavy drone is still an option.

Used Inspire packages are available in the 3-5K range and the batteries are still being produced. No way I would be able to buy afford an Inspire 3, assuming it will even be produced.

The Mavic 3 doesn't interest me at all. I have no need to be more "cinematic", I want more "photographic" instead.

Anyone else out there wanting more camera options?

I have exactly the same problem as I would often need a different field of view and longer lens (90mm equivalent would be perfect).

But those bigger drones just suck The whole package is huge, batteries expensive and while no one really cares when you fly air 2s the inspire is a huge beast.. you need to be really careful and need a different license. It sucks from so many reasons

I really wish there was something like air 2s - or interchangeable module to fit there a longer lens in 50-100mm equivalent range with 1" sensor. If mavic 3 was a 24-70mm zoom with 1" I would buy it immediately.

At least there could be a digital solution in Air 2s offering digital 3x zoom with binding multiple shots to increase resolution. I guess it may be worth to try it manually - 10 or 20 shots combined and cropped may help a little bit.
