Learn how an easy-to-use drone can take your photos and videos to the next level during an April 27 Drone Demo Day at Simply Computing at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre.

Picture this: Your aerial photos and videos can be this good!

Drone Demo Day at Simply Computing shows how easy it is

Can you capture swooping movie-style vistas during your family vacation? Images that can fit in everyone … without using a selfie-stick?


In fact, thanks to easily accessible drone technology, capturing those vacation memories will never be the same!

The numerous possibilities drones offer the average user – yes, they can be THAT easy to use – mean they’ve soared in popularity among users of all ages over the last few years, says Mark Kyslik, from Abbotsford’s Simply Computing.

“With the ease of operation and the features the technology offers, you can make a video your first flight,” Kyslik says.

From entry-level consumer models to pro-level drones, the go-to choice for many is industry leader DJI, accounting for more than 50 per cent of the market world-wide. And you can learn exactly why that is at a special event this Saturday, April 27.

Sponsored by DJI and powered by Simply Computing at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre, visit the demo day from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a chance to see the drones in action. Better yet, if a model catches your eye, you’ll even get a 10 per cent discount, available on all DJI drones on April 27 only.

DJI drones are leaders in everything from stability control to battery life and offer the most intuitive controls, essential features whether you’re filming the family beach vacation or a professional client video, Kyslik says.

But with a vast range in price, how do choose the right model for your needs?

The demo day will be a great start, but it pays to talk the experts.

Think about what you’ll be using the drone for and how you’ll use the final images, Kyslik suggests.

The light and nimble Tello is a great entry-level model, for example, that still offers a 720p HD camera and electronic image stabilization for smooth aerial footage.

Moving into drones like the foldable Mavic Air, users enjoy features like a 5km flight range, with 20 minutes of reliable flight time with each battery charge, rear obstacle avoidance and camera that captures 4K video.

And with the Mavic 2 series, those features climb to 26 minutes of reliable flight time and 8km flight range, while camera choices include an optical zoom with no image quality loss, or a Hasselblad camera – an industry leader but without the zoom feature.

Think also about what kind of accessories you might need, such as additional batteries, propellers or propeller guards, Kyslik says, noting Simply Computing’s higher-end drones feature a Fly More combo with many essentials to keep you flying.
