We’ve all seen incredible overhead shots, whether in an online video or in a movie, that leave us scratching our heads as to how exactly it can be possible to get such high-quality footage from so far in the air. It might seem impossibly unaffordable to purchase the tech that would allow for getting super clean aerial footage. For a while, this was true: Big movie studios basically had a monopoly on expensive drones with high-quality cameras attached. But as time goes on, technology becomes more efficient, and now there is a way to get one at home.
The AIR PIX: Pocket-Sized Flying Camera
is a miniature drone that can capture video that was impossible with the handheld technology of the past. Typically listed for $159, it’s on sale now for just $139.

The AIR PIX has a 1080p resolution, 8GB of onboard memory, and a 12-megapixel camera.

You can even move it with just the gestures of your hand or treat it like a game and control it with your phone.
