At this year’s CES 2018 in Las Vegas, if you are a drone fanatic like me, then you have a lot to look forward to this year, because there are so many amazing drones set to come out this year, one of them is the AEE Air Selfie.
Now, selfies are obviously a big thing in this day and age and I knew in due time, a drone company would come out with a drone that was specifically for taking selfies. There’s the AEE Selfly and the AEE Air Selfie, and I’m going to tell you about the AEE Air Selfie.
About the AEE Air Selfie
Basically, the AEE Air Selfie is a portable flying camera that has been developed for selfie lovers. Who would have ever thought we would see the day when cameras could fly?
Over the past two years now, selfie sticks have been a big trend and to be honest with you, I find them a bit annoying. There’s just something about having to use a stick to take a picture. So, when I saw the AEE Air Selfie, I knew right away that it would be a big hit.
The drone is small in size, as expected, probably smaller than the standard smartphone. It only weighs 52 grams, which is a bonus, because you can carry it around just as you’d carry a camera around, without having to worry about a bunch of extra weight.
The main idea of the AirSelfie, of course, is taking selfies from above. It can actually take pictures up to 60 feet above you, so it’s the perfect drone for taking group selfies. The drone works great indoors and outdoors and it is easy to use.
How it Works
When you take the drone out of the cover, you can use the AirSelfie app on your phone in order to launch it. When you have the drone in the air, there are three flight modes you can use:
Selfie Mode Control Mode – With this mode, you will be using a virtual joystick to control the drone in real time.
Selfie Mode – In this mode, you will have two directional buttons that you can use to have the AirSelfie move further away or closer to you.
Flying Mode – The hovering function, allows you to take the perfect photo. Using this feature will make the drone hover in the air for an even better shot.
Another interesting feature that iPhone lovers will like would be the fact that this drone automatically connects to Apple iPhones.
Post Your Photos
As soon as you have taken your photos and videos, you can post them on social media. All of the videos and photos will automatically be sent over to your smartphone via WiFi and will show in the app. From the app, you can choose which ones you would like to upload to your social media.
Quality of Pictures
The Air Selfie pictures and videos are pretty good quality. Video resolution is at 1080p and pictures at 5 MP, which is decent. The images can also be saved to a MicroSd card.
If you’re a selfie lover, then the AEE Air Selfie is made for you. The photos and videos look great and since it can fly up to 60 feet and you can control the shot using a smartphone in order to achieve the best angles, it’s not bad at all. There’s even a 10-second delay time for group photos.
