A drone and a super-durable memory card make shooting your own great-looking movies easy. If you're ready to take your moviemaking skills to the next level, get ready to fly.

Don't just tell your friends about your latest outdoor adventures — show them what you did in stunning video with the DJI Mavic Air.

This foldable, go-anywhere drone is perfect for shooting easy 4K and Full HD videos from the sky. Its 3-axis gimbal camera means you get smooth aerial shots with limited vibration. It also comes with a foldable remote controller that holds your smartphone so you can pack light, but still capture great footage in no time.

The Mavic Air has up to 21 minutes* of flight time per charge and powerful sensors, so it automatically avoids obstacles. Plus, to make video capture and control even easier, it has preset camera modes called QuickShots. Just tap once on the control and you're making advanced camera moves like Boomerang, Rocket, Asteroid and others that'll considerably up your drone game.

In addition to 4K video, the Mavic Air shoots 360-degree sphere panoramas, slow-motion video and HDR photos that save directly to its 8GB of internal storage. And, so you don't miss a moment, there's also a microSD slot for additional memory like a SanDisk Extreme Plus memory card. It has the durability and capacity to make sure everything's captured with pristine detail. A SanDisk Extreme Plus card records at a blazing rate of UHS Speed Class 3 (U3), so Full HD and 4K videos look breathtaking.

Once you have this great setup, the last step is easy: plan your big moviemaking trip.

*Acquired at a constant speed of 25 kph, free of wind. Actual flight time may vary because of the environment and use of flight modes.
