Hubsan Zino Pro Camera

The main feature of this drone (or any drone for that matter) is its 4K camera. This is a professional-level camera that will allow you to take some stunning aerial videos and images.

If you have ever wanted to take those awesome slow-motion videos of nature, this is the kind of camera you will need. Usually, 4K camera drones used to cost around $1000 but not anymore, drones like the Hubsan Zino Pro have made 4K drones accessible to a lot more people.

The camera is stabilised by an advanced 3-axis gimbal that will eliminate any kind of shakiness, distortion or jello effect from your images and videos.

The camera has a wide-angle lens and with the 3-axis gimbal you can rotate the camera in multiple directions to get the angle you want. Also, if you are a professional photographer, you can attach ND filters on the lens to limit the amount of light that gets into your images. The filters are not included, so you will need to purchase them separately. Other features of this camera include recording 4K videos at 30fps or 2.7k videos at 60fps. It also comes with a Sony image sensor and an advanced video processing system on chip from Ambarella.

The live video feed is streamed in 1080p, for the best streaming quality, its best advised that you only fly in very good weather, otherwise, video streams may sometimes be cut-off.

You can also take some amazing panorama photography with this camera, it can rotate 180° and capture some amazing scenic images.

Overall, this is a stunning camera, especially for the price the drone is selling for at the moment. If you are an aspiring photographer and want a 4K camera but do not have the budget for a DJI drone, the Hubsan Zino Pro is the next best thing.

Other Features

As you would expect from such an advanced drone, the Hubsan Zino Pro comes with many features that will enhance your flying experience.

These features include the following.

Dual GPS – It can connect to both GPS+GLONASS satellite systems for precise positioning on the app.

Image Tracking – You can lock onto a moving subject and the drone will follow it around. You can set the height and distance from within the app. This feature works really well, the only issue is that it does not comes with any kind of obstacle avoidance system, so you will have to be alert that there is no obstruction in its path.

Orbit Mode – In this mode, you can lock the drone on a specific target and the drone will orbit that position automatically.

Waypoint – A cool flight mode that will allow you to draw a path on the app and the drone will automatically fly along that route and come back to its flight of origin.

Automatic Return Home – This is a really useful feature as it will minimise the risks of losing the drone in mid-flight. You can manually activate this feature via the remote controller, or the app and it will activate automatically if you lose connection or if the battery gets low on charge.

With all the smart flight modes, you will still have control over the camera which will allow you to take better videos and images without having to worry about controlling the drone.

Flight Performance

Hubsan have really impressed me with their Zino drones, the Hubsan Zino Pro, flies as you would expect from a premium level drone. Its smooth, isn’t very loud and is easy to operate, it also hovers very steadily which is always a bonus when you want to take images and videos. It holds up decently in windy conditions, although if you are relatively new to drones, I would recommend you only fly in good weather. The smart flight modes all work very well and the live streaming quality is very good as well.
