Update: Please check the below The Guardian video. “Reality vs. a dream” in its best. If I was to asked to describe my “dream cinematic drone”, I would come up with the following points: Easy to use, very portable and equipped with a good quality camera. It looks like at least 2 of my wishes just came true. Meet the Lily Drone, the new kid on the block. Honestly, if this thing ever comes to production, I guess many professionals that were so far intimidated by the current technology will “jump in”. True, it might not have the best camera (Apparently it uses the same camera sensor as the GoPro HERO 3) but there’s no doubt that 1 or 2 shots taken with this drone can make the different between a good production and an amazing one. Priced at $499 (A special offer until June 15th instead of $999) and shipping in February of 2016, this tool is guaranteed to rock the drone boat once again.
