Film like a pro!
Thanks to Parrot Bebop 2 Power, it has never been so easy to make aerial videos.

Capture beautiful landscapes, yourself and adventures with your friends. The drone’s unique piloting features, which are based on Artificial Intelligence, will help you to take truly impressive shots.

These features have been expertly created by Parrot engineers, who have developed a neuronal like network which is able to analyze live images captured by the Parrot Bebop 2 Power’s camera, and can recognize different elements of its surroundings such as humans and vehicles. This technology makes the Parrot Bebop 2 Power visual tracking much more accurate and the selection of subject to track much more simple and fast.

  • Cameraman: Similar to a Director’s assistant, it will allow you to take perfect videos and photos effortlessly. Thanks to the Parrot Bebop 2 Power Artificial Intelligence, just double tap the screen on a smartphone to focus. Slide a finger on the screen to position your subject into the frame, guided by the line of force. Thanks to that you are fully focused on the piloting and the Parrot Bebop 2 Power takes care of everything else. Even if the subject is moving, the position will remain the same on the screen.
  • Magic Dronies: capture the ultimate ‘dronie’ using the Parrot Bebop 2 Power’s four automatic movements, which use visual recognition and GPS positioning of the Smartphone. The Orbit, Tornado, Parabola or Boomerang modes will select the visual effect you want, and make sure you’re in the center of the video or photograph at all times.
  • Follow Me with GPS and visual tracking: Integrated into the Parrot Bebop 2 Power, this feature gives the drone the capacity to follow your every step, record your adventures, and keep you in the center of the video – even during extreme sports activities!
  • Auto Shots: four pre-programed flying movements for capturing landscape views, including sophisticated photographic features and camera moves. Panoramas, travelling and other visual effects will be accessible in a flash thanks to 360, Reveal, Epic and Rise features.

High quality images
Parrot Bebop 2 Power is equipped with a customised wide angle lens and a cutting-edge anti-distortion technology, which provides bright and clear aerial shots.

Its 3 axis digital stabilization patented technology provides unrivalled stabilized images, reducing vibrations and aliasing effects. Its CMOS 1/2,3″ 14MPX sensor allows you to film in Full HD 30fps and to take JPEG and Adobe DNG Raw formats for retouching via a post-production process.
