TOP 5 REASONS FOR A DRONE IN 2021 Leave a comment

Are you an amateur or professional photographer? Did you know that you are just a drone away from revolutionizing your photography career? Check out the top 5 reasons why you should be investing in a drone.

1. Go on an adventure

If you are a photographer, you definitely want to explore your creative side and have fun while at it. Drones, unlike the traditional camera, give you fun options.

Not only does it allow you to capture images up to 400feet in the sky (awesome) but allows you to use specific flight modes to add creativity to your shot. You can track a moving object, get the drone to follow you automatically using your GPS signal, or take multiple shots and stitch them into a panorama.

For photographers who enjoy showing a good story, the drone will be a fun addition as it enables you to scout great locations and capture creative images. Remember, this is your job and you get to have fun while doing it.

2. Excellent for photographers who enjoy  aerial photography

Drones are the perfect way of reaching areas and getting shots from angles that the traditional camera can’t. For the photographer that enjoys aerial photography, drones must be a necessary part of your toolkit as they allow you to not only capture photos of buildings, events, and landscapes but also give you the additional benefit of creating videos.

3. Creative photography & videography for weddings and events

Let’s face it, we all love visuals, and drones provide a great way of taking great videos from a higher viewpoint, capturing more content with greater precision, unlike formerly where photographers had to use planes.

Whether it is taking an aerial video of a client’s wedding proposal, the wedding itself, or a natural landscape, drones definitely makes videography worthwhile.

4. Step up your Social Media & Influencer game

More and more businesses are using social media to showcase their content and create brand awareness. It is not unusual nowadays to find company social media platforms showcasing exquisite photos taken from a high view.

Drone photography is now becoming a great way for businesses, and even people to set themselves apart. Thus, for the photographer, this is a great way to generate new income and increase the customer base by providing high-quality social media-friendly photos and videos.

They also have provided a fun and creative way for influencers to create new content. They can now use drones to create idyllic and appealing content for their viewers.

The fact that they can be used to create video content is a major plus for influencers as they can create high-quality content of events, daily routines and brands to be distributed to their users via social media platforms.

5. Awesome for Real-Estate angles

Drones are for real estate what water is for swimmers; essential. They enable real estate developers to tell the story of a home they have in the market, giving potential buyers a unique bird’s eye view of the house, neighbourhood, and a unique viewpoint of the location and its surroundings

Drones have revolutionized the real estate industry by allowing the creation of videos of possible projects, enabling potential sponsors to actually be able to have a picture of the project and how it will fit into the existing area, a great fundraising asset for real estate developers.

In addition to this, it is crucial to note that since 2020, real estate sales have been increasingly moving online, with a majority of buyers never actually stepping on the property they intend to buy. This has made drone photography all the more crucial in making potential homes more appealing to customers.

All in all, the necessity of the drone for any self-respecting photographer can not be understated. Try out the DJI DJIMAVICAIR2DJI Mavic Air 2 Drone for only $1449 and watch your photography career leap to heights you never thought existed.

Ever wished you could just put your feet up and

  1. have high quality, brand name home appliances
  2. at the best possible prices
  3. delivered to your doorstep
  4. with good, old fashioned Aussie service and values

at just a few mouse clicks? With none of the BS – i.e. inflated prices, lousy communication, creepy salespeople etc. – in between?

That’s who The CBF Store are! A one stop, online home appliance store for good folks like yourself who know exactly what you want and how you want it. Our prices speak for themselves as we do our very best to ensure affordability and accessibility to every Australian household.

Heck if you find the very same thing priced better (or any part of our service lacking), we’d actually be upset and would love to know how we could do better!

The CBF Store is a Melbourne based company with access to some of Australia’s largest home appliance distributors/importers and extensive freight networks across all states.

We can be contacted via phone, email, the contact form further below or even via our live chat function if you fancy a yarn about an appliance or just the questionable Melbourne weather.

The short answer – no. In order for us to provide you with what we believe is the best pricing on brand name home appliances in Australia, we knew we had to do away with the bright lights, outsized commercial rents and the obligatory small army of employees. Because all that ever translates into is an overpriced appliance. And we are all about helping every possible Australian household afford something for their home.

You mean you’re still not convinced? You don’t like the sound of (an ever-growing range) of high quality brand name home appliances retailed by an Australian company (with actual Aussies on the other end of phone calls and emails), at very-hard- to-beat prices, home delivered with service the way it should be? And with professionalism and transparency at every step of the way? Tough crowd!

All our products are brand new and come with full manufacturers’ warranties (specific to each manufacturer).

Your order will be processed within a couple of days and freight (depending on your location) can take anywhere from 5 to 14 BUSINESS days, on average. Unlike some other well-known appliance vendors, CBF will (within reason) attempt to service customers far and wide and wherever the delivery trucks can safely go. If you happen to reside in a postcode with a lot more country to it, please expect your item to arrive at the latter end of our stated delivery window. The freight companies may also attempt to get I touch (on your best contact number) before making the journey to safely deliver your appliance, so please be sure to answer your phone.

Delivery on a large number of our items, is free of charge, to nearly all parts of mainland Australia (Tasmania included). For certain items, delivery is free of charge to specific zones/regions only.

Competitive shipping is otherwise offered, which can either be confirmed upon checkout or contacting us for a custom quote. Please also check each item’s “Features” section for any additional shipping details.

Also there may be instances where certain remote addresses could incur some sort of an additional delivery charge. If you are ever in doubt about your location, kindly contact us at any time before making your purchase.

In the rare event that this does occur, fear not as this is where the manufacturer’s warranty will kick in and assist in having a new unit delivered to you (while having the damaged/faulty unit picked up). All at no extra cost to you.
