Before the drone revolution, aerial cinematography was a luxury that only the highest budget of filmmakers could access. You'd need to rent a helicopter, a pilot, and rig your camera up with tons of safety gear to safely get aerial shots for your film or television projects.

However, thanks in large part to brands like DJI, aerial shots are now such the norm that pretty much everyone from YouTubers to wedding videographers incorporate these shots into their projects. And, if you aren't using aerial shots in your project, it's likely not due to budget.

As you'll see in our "Deals of the Week," these DJI drones are on sale and very affordable for those looking to take flight.

DJI Mini 2 SE

Get ready to fly right away with this "Fly More" combo featuring the DJI Mini 2 SE drone. Capable of taking aerial videos at up to 2.7K resolution at 30fps, this palm-sized Mini 2 SE is the more affordable brother to the Mini 2, yet still keeps much of its functionality with the same 36 mph flight speed, up to 6.2-mile OcuSync 2.0 video transmission, and more.

The Mini 2 SE also delivers on convenience, making it easy and fun for beginners and experts alike. QuickShots and panorama intelligent pre-programmed flight modes allow for pro results with just one tap. Even with its lightweight frame, the Mini 2 SE is safe to use with robust wind resistance and return-to-home functionality.
