It’s a great alternative the the DJI Spark.

The Anafi doesn’t shoot super cinematic video, but the quality of the footage is very good for a drone at this price point. It also offers some unique features that we haven’t seen before. Like any good camera drone these days, the Anifi Shoots 4K video at 30FPS.

It has a two notable video features. The first is called HDR. It’s similar to the HDR feature on the Mavic 2 Pro, but instead of shooting in a true HDR format for viewing on HDR TVs, the Anafi shoots in a standard color format that is for viewing on normal displays (not HDR displays). This means you will see more dynamic range in the video, but you won’t see anything special when viewing on an HDR TV like you do on the Mavic 2 Pro.

Cheapest drone with a digital zoom.

The Anafi has one other feature that is similar to the Mavic 2 called lossless digital zoom. This allows you to zoom in while recording video up to 1.4x in 4K and 2.8x in 1080p with very little loss in quality.

Photo quality is another area where the Anafi really shines. The 20 megapixel sensor produces very detailed images and just like when shooting video, you can also shoot HDR photos. It even has a hyperlapse mode which takes a series of photos over a set amount of time and turns them into a fast motion video.

You can look up 90 degrees!

My favorite feature of the Anafi is the 180 degree 2 axis gimbal. Unlike most drone cameras, with this special gimbal, the Anafi can look up to 90 degrees up or down. This means if you’re flying under some trees and you want to take some shots of the leaves and the sky in the background, you can actually do it. There is one downside to the Gimbal on the Anafi though, and it’s a big one. Just like the DJI Spark, it’s only a 2 axis gimbal, meaning that the third axis is still digitally stabilized. For slow shots, you won’t notice this small detail, but if you’re flying in windy conditions or you do a lot of panning shots, you might see some jittery panning motion.

The Anafi is a great drone for the price, but the biggest complaint I have by far is the lack of any sensors for obstacle avoidance. The only obstacle that this drone will stop you from hitting is the ground, that is, as long as you don’t hit a tree first. All of the other drones in this price range have some kind of obstacle avoidance, so why they couldn’t even add some IR sensors is beyond me.
