12 Top Drones With Cameras, GPS, Autopilot And Low Prices

The top drones with 4k cameras reviewed here also have excellent GPS and autopilot systems, giving you many options, when it comes to flying, aerial filming and photography.

Along with great cameras, GPS and autopilot, these drones with low prices have many safety features.

These top drones featured below all have 4k cameras and can be flown by pilot manually or on autopilot. A drone flying on autopilot has big advantages over manual flight. With an autopilot programmed route, called waypoints, the drone can take aerial photos or video much better than any pilot can.

This is especially true in difficult weather conditions. A drone flying in autopilot mode is monitoring and adjusting its position thousands of times per second. Manual flying will never be able to achieve this flight accuracy.

For aerial photography, it is great to let the drone fly on autopilot on a given route, while you concentrate on working the camera capturing the best of video and stills.

Having a drone with a GPS autopilot flight system and a 4k camera is very essential for aerial photogrammetry, 3D mapping and multispectral imaging in the agricultural sector.

The 12 top drones reviewed here are full of innovation and this post is right up to date. These drones are also very affordable. All drones have advanced GPS systems, intelligent autopilot systems, advanced stabilization technology and top of the range 4k cameras. One of the most sought off features is follow me technology, which all the below drones have.

The below drones also have collision avoidance technology, which give you an increased level of safety when you are flying and filming.

Top Drones With Cameras, GPS And Autopilot
Below, we review the following top drones with excellent cameras, GPS, autopilot systems and are low in price;

DJI Mavic Air / Air 2
DJI Mavic Pro
DJI Mavic 2 Pro & Zoom (New)
DJI Inspire 2
DJI Phantom 4 Pro
Yuneec Typhoon H
Yuneec Breeze
Yuneec Mantis Q
Walkera Vitus
Autel X-Star Premium
SwellPro Splash Drone 3 Auto
All of the drones featured below are all very easy to fly.

Most of the above drones have dual GNSS with coverage from both GPS and GLONASS giving extra satellites and full coverage no matter where you are on the globe. Also the above drones have excellent 4k cameras with great automatic settings and loads of manual settings.

The drones with the best autopilot modes are the Mavic 2 and Phantom 4 Pro.

DJI Mavic 2 Drone With Camera, Dual GPS And Autopilot
The new Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom editions just released on 23rd August 2018 has some major advancements over the previous Mavic Pro, which I also discuss below.

Both Mavic 2 versions and the original Mavic Pro are close in looks. However, the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom are far superior.

The only difference between the Mavic 2 Pro and the Mavic 2 Zoom is the camera. So I have separated these below.

The Mavic 2 is faster, quieter and can fly further. Obstacle sensing is now on all 6 sides with front and back collision avoidance technology, allowing the Mavic 2 to fly around obstacles.

Below, we look at the Mavic 2 GPS, Cameras and Autopilot modes. To find out more on these new DJI quadcopters just released, the read our full Mavic 2 Zoom and Mavic 2 Pro review, which also includes some terrific videos.

Here is the DJI introduction to the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom with dual GPS, superb 4k camera including the Zoom option and so lots of autopilot modes.

Mavic 2 Global Navigation Satellite System
Both Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom use both GPS and GLONASS so the quadcopter connects up to a number of satellites. The dual satellite system is used by the Mavic 2 to assist with precision flying, return to home, obstacle avoidance, waypoints, points of interest and much more.

To fly your quadcopter safely it is important to have a strong GPS signal, which is why dual satellite systems are the best.

GPS is also essential for the geotagging of aerial photographs for photogrammetry using 3D mapping software.

Mavic 2 Autopilot Flight Modes
The Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom have the following autonomous Intelligent Flight Modes;

ActiveTrack 2.0

Points Of Interest (POI 2.0)
Waypoint Navigation
Cinematic Mode
Mavic 2 Pro Drone Camera Features
1 Inch CMOS Sensor – The new 1 inch CMOS sensor has an active sensing area four times more effective than the original Mavic Pro. The large sensor also means better performance in low light environments with a more extensive ISO range, max ISO lifted from 3,200 to 12,800.

10 Bit Dlog-M Color Profile – The Mavic 2 Pro supports a 10 bit Dlog-M color profile, which yields higher dynamic range for more flexibility in the grading room.

The system records over 1 billion colors (compared to the 16 million colors from traditional 8 bit color coding technologies) and retains more in-depth detail in both highlights and shadows. This allows you can capture the subtlest gradations at sunset or sunrise.

HDR Video – With 4k 10 bit HDR (High Dynamic Range) support, the Mavic 2 Pro can be plugged into a 4k television with HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and it will immediately play back footage with the right color tones.

Adjustable Aperture – The Mavic 2 Pro has an f/2.8 to f/11 adjustable aperture, which deliver outstanding image quality in high and low light environments. When shooting in low light, set the aperture to f/2.8 to allow more light in and to capture bright and clear photos. When shooting in well lit environments, set the aperture to f/11 to lower the shutter speed and make your videos smoother.

H.265 Codec For Higher Image Quality – The Mavic 2 Pro records 4k video at a higher bitrate with advanced H.265 compression. Videos in H.265 / HEVC codec maintain 50% more information than videos in H.264 / AVC, creating high-quality videos with better-preserved details.
