Back in 2000 when I started shooting "professionally" (trying to eek a few bucks) and I was loaded up with my Nikon D1, someone told me of some guy who was flying a camera around in the sky and making money selling images of real estate and shopping malls. I was like....RIDICULOUS....a true commercial image must require a photographers eye to compose, right?
A few years after that, some of the digital still cameras were also offering video capabilities. Again, nah, a true DSLR is not meant to do both, right?
Circa the new millenium and between smartphones, drones and Panasonic DSLR's shooting remarkable 4K video along with stellar still images, I have surrended that if I call myself a photographer I better not lock myself in a closet and just profess a superior affinity to just still images.
For the adventure travel I like to do, nowadays, having a few drone seems like a must and really, in moderation, a perfect compliment to an adventure travel portfolio.
I have surfed and surfed and surfed and I think for an upcoming trip I am just going to dive in with a DJI Spark. I have poured through all the specs and giving up RAW and 4K is not a big deal for me as this is just a small part of the bag.
Anyone else shooting with a Spark and I would appreciate any frank opinions and experience.
