Pros Have Bad Moments: The Drone That Loved The Icy Waters


Though we wish that no photographer has a bad day, it sure seems like Chase Jarvis had one. In an experiment gone horribly wrong, a DJI Phantom, a Quadracopter meant for photographers and videographers, took a swim in the frigid Iceland waters. When it fell into the water, a Sony RX 100 II went along with it. They were trying to use that camera because of its image stabilization and raw capabilities. However the Quadracopter was meant for a GoPro camera. The hack they tried was well thought out, but it did not work out well in the end.

Check out the video after the jump.
