If selfie sticks, smartphone zoom lenses and underwater GoPros aren’t enough to satisfy your photographic hunger, how about a drone that takes photos from the sky? The DJI Phantom 3 4K is a WiFi-enabled aerial camera that allows you to have an eagle-eye view from above during your favorite photogenic events.


A new addition to the already popular Phantom aerial camera series, the 3 4K edition upgrade includes a gimbal-stabilized, integrated 4K camera, remote-control buttons for playback, ultrasonic sensors and more.


If you’re got a wedding coming up and would like photos of the event from above, the Phantom 3 4K is your new best friend. Heck, you could even take this thing with you to the Grand Canyon and get views over the enormous chasm without risking falling over the edge.


It flies up to 120 meters above take-off position and as far away as 1,200 meters without obstruction. Once it’s in the air, it’ll only stay afloat for 25-minute intervals so you’d better snap those photos in a timely manner. It supports a micro-SD card for storage and can even record video if you feel so inclined.


The Phantom 3 4K is available now for purchase and you can find a retailer near you through DJI’s website.
