Introducing the Lily Camera

I have long been fascinated with the possibilities of Quadcopters or UAV cameras for amateur film making and have been kicking myself lately for not being more of an early adopter. The price and the complexity of use are the main things that have kept me away. However, with the rate at which technology has been advancing maybe it’s okay that I wasn’t on the bleeding edge. The functionality of this Lily Camera and apparent ease of use may be exactly what I have been waiting for to jump in.

Clocking in with a $699 price tag, the Lily is about half the price of the DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter (with 4K Camera and 3-Axis Gimbal) and more in line with DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter v2.0. Comparing prices may not be fair as each has a long list of attributes and some that may be considered standard on the Phantom may be missing all together on the Lilly.

The LA Times did a more thorough comparison here and the folks over at DIY Photography have compared it head to head with a another UAV Camera called The Sprite here.

At the end of the day all of these advances are good for the consumer/amateur film maker allowing us to easily get shots and B-roll that would have required lots of time and money, even just a few short years ago.

Lily is the world’s first throw-and-shoot camera. It lets anyone create cinematic footage previously reserved for professional filmmakers. Lily is waterproof, ultra-portable, and shoots stunning HD pictures and videos.
