Snap is the first fully portable, gimbal-stabilized 4K flying camera that is both safe and will capture stunning aerial footage. Two years in the making, Snap boasts everything you’d need from a flying camera. According to Vantage Robotics’ CEO Tobin Fischer, “People are the most interesting subjects for any video, so we wanted to make a flying camera that was actually safe to use around the. Whether you’re a professional photographer or athlete, or simply looking to capture the moment in a unique way, Snap fits in the smallest backpack and provides beautiful 4K imagery, without weighing you down.”
It boasts an enclosed-blade design that makes it safe and harmless, even if you accidentally touch it while its flying. In fact, the idea for Snap came when Fischer cut his hand on a plastic-bladed quadrotor. Additionally, its small size makes it easy to fit into a backpack. Lightweight and controllable from your smartphone, the Snap is a great adventure companion. Head over to its site to preorder now with shipping beginning in Spring 2016.
