Eric Cheng, DJI’s former Director of Aerial Imaging, is now releasing a guidebook geared toward beginner consumer drone owners.
Titled “Aerial Photography and Videography Using Drones” the book is marketed as a “timely educational resource, written to help beginner-and-intermediate drone pilots learn how to capture pictures and videos from the air safely and proficiently,” according to a news release.
Cheng also formerly served as Director of Photography at Lytro and is on the advisory board of the U.S. Association of Unmanned Aerial Videographers (UAVUS).
Most of the guidebook is geared toward DJI Phantom 3 quadcopters and drones that carry the GoPro HERO series.
“Eric is perhaps the most dedicated envelope-pusher I’ve ever met when it comes to equipment and technology,” said Adam Savage, co-host of the Discovery Chanel show, Mythbusters. “You couldn’t ask for a better field guide to this new frontier.”
The book arrives on shelves Oct. 29, 2015.
