Parrot Anafi Overview

  • 1Description

With the Anafi 4K Portable Drone from Parrot, you always have the ability to take stunning aerial videos and pictures. The ultra-compact and portable Anafi weighs a little over 11 oz and can fit into a backpack. It's designed to unfold and start flying in less than three seconds. Once in the air, Anafi can take stunning 4K videos with 100 Mb/s bit rate, and 21MP HDR-enhanced still photos. Anafi features 3-axis image stabilization to help keep all your footage and pictures stable and clear. With the addition of a 180° gimbal, tracking A.I., and a host of photo modes, the Anafi can give you professional-quality results anytime, anywhere.

180° Tilt Gimbal
With the ability to go from -90 to +90 degrees, this gimbal lets you take impressive low-angle shots, helping to make your videos stand out and opening a host of filming possibilities.
2.8x Lossless Zoom
Anafi lets you get close while staying safe by giving you the ability to digitally zoom in up to 2.8x on your subject in Full HD 1080p resolutions (1.4x in Ultra HD 4K). Whichever resolution you choose, Parrot has crafted its zoom technology to be lossless so whether you pull back or push in, your images won't lose any detail.
Foldable Skycontroller 3 Included
Working with your Android or iOS smartphone and the FreeFlight 6 app, the compact and ergonomic Skycontroller 3 lets you take full control of Anafi's capabilities. Dual thumbsticks let you pilot the Anafi, and FreeFlight 6 gives you a variety of flight solutions that are adaptable to your level of expertise.
Automatic A.I. Shooting and Tracking
CineShots: Automatically execute up to four cinematic video movies. Choose from Reveal, Epic, Rise, and 360-Degree.
SmartDronies: Lets you take selfies from the sky.
Dolly Zoom Effect: Automatically uses Anafi's unique zoom capabilities and its advanced visual tracking system to create a perspective deformation of the background.
Slow-Motion: This mode records automatically, instantly adding a slow-motion result, ideal for action based videos.
Hyperlapse: This mode immediately accelerates your videos so you can capture a sunset, a sunrise, or even passing clouds.
Cameraman: An automatic framing assistant for aerial videos. All you have to do is control the movement of the Anafi while your subject is automatically framed.
Follow Me: An in-app purchase inside FreeFlight 6, this enables you to stay in the heart of the action at all times. Anafi films you on the go without anyone piloting the drone directly. In complete autonomy, Anafi follows you and moves at your pace both horizontally and vertically.
Dual-Band Transmission System
Anafi features a 2.4/5 GHz dual-band antenna in each leg to help maintain connection for HD streaming from up to 2.5 miles away.
Superior Performance
The Anafi has been engineered to resist winds of up to 31 mph, and can reach speeds up to 33 mph in Sport mode.
Safe Flight Features
Geofence: Lets you define your very own virtual perimeter that stops Anafi from flying out of a designated area.
Smart RTH (Return to Home): If the drone ever loses connection or if the battery life is low, it will automatically come back to its starting point.
Find My Drone: Should you lose sight of your drone, you can easily make it beep at the tap of a button or find it on the map to locate and retrieve it.
Carbon Fiber Construction
The carbon fibers of the drone are charged with empty glass microbeads that are then filled with air to resist bumps and knocks. This material helps keep Anafi durable and lightweight, coming in at only 11.3 oz.
USB Type-C Charging
The built-in USB Type-C port lets you recharge the Anafi from your smartphone, computer, or (optional) power bank. Anafi is compatible with Power Delivery, letting you quickly charge up to 60% faster than a typical 5W USB Type-A connection.
Additional Features
  • 25 minutes of flight time per charge
  • LED battery level indicators
  • Wide angle aspherical lens

    Parrot Anafi Reviews

    Anafi 4K Portable Drone is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Advanced features, not previously seen A+++ I'm loving it so far! Some people have said it's high for the price range. I hardly think that's the case seeing as it is the first drone in many classes to offer an easy to use, lossless digital zoom. Along with that is the new innovative ability to point the camera up 90 degrees! The quality of the picture is amazing considering the small sensor size and the 21mp still photos make the 12mp stills of other drones look far outdated. It's light, convenient and darn easy to fly. Now for the flaws as nothing is perfect, although all things considered this drone is darn close imo. The craft is ultra lightweight, and with that comes a sense of fragileness. It does not feel like it would take a crash very well and without obstacle avoidance you actually have to be a pilot, which is what you should be anyways before flying a drone around. I have never used obstacle avoidance in the drones I fly, if you have to have it, you need more practice time. It's nice to have but with it comes more complex issues when the sensors fail or malfunction. The other issue is the slow battery recharge. I purchase two spare batteries as the fastest recharge possible with these batteries is around two to two and a half hours at best. If you use an iPhone charger hooked to the usb c cable, you are in for a three and a half to four hour plus recharge time. At the time of this review the HDR has a fixed pattern type noise across the frames. I believe this will be resolved in the near future with a software update, let's hope so anyways. It doesn't as well in the wind as they claim, the 32 mph wind estimate is a good ways off from my experience. The drone has some drifting going on more than larger ones in moderate to low wind but if you pay attention if isn't a big deal. The drone is exceptionally quiet and that is wonderful for not drawing unwanted attention. The carry case is just big enough for the craft so with the remote and spare batteries you'll want a backpack to take it out in the field and get those awesome shots you are going to be getting. It's a great little craft with some mostly minor flaws that any sensible person should be able to adapt to or work around. I think for what it does, it is a bargain but everyone has different demands and expectations.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot to love, but a few shortcomings I have seven flights so far, so I'm far from an expert using the Anafi. I like the light weight and compact size and the video image quality is very good (but not in HDR mode from the examples I've seen). The app for my Android phone is fairly intuitive and well design, but has had issues with occasionally crashing and mixing Imperial units with metric units, making for some real confusion potential. The controller is mostly well-designed with good feel for finessed camera operation. My big Nexus 6 phone wouldn't fit the bracket, even with its bumper case removed. I was able to put an adhesive bumper pad in front of the groove under the antenna part of the bracket. My phone now fits in its case after my DIY fix, which is good because the case keeps the bracket from squeezing the side control buttons on the phone. The clamp closes with the bumper in place, which is also good since opening and closing the clamp turns power on/off for the controller. The prices is pretty steep for what's provided. Of course there's only the downward sensors, and the gimbal is only two-axis. The electronic stabilization works pretty well, but I've seen videos where it can make the resulting video "shiver". That may be a quirk that can be improved in future firmware. I dislike the SD card holder immensely. Yes, you can hook up the drone via a USB C data cable, but the Anafi must be powered on. While power is on, you get cooling fan noise and you have to find a safe place to rest the drone while transferring files. If you like to swap out media cards from your devices, think twice about doing so with the Anafi in the field, since the metal gate on the SD holder is easily pulled off its hinges. Do that in a meadow and you'll likely lose it. I haven't needed to replace props yet, but the process is also fussy and you will need to take great care not to lose the small torx screw that secures each blade. No extra screws are provided. The Freewell filters I got friction fit on the front of the camera. There are no threads nor a removable ring. I've been able to initialize the drone with a filter installed, but some have reported that they have to install filters after starting the drone. I have had initialization fail with the provided lens cap on. The lens cap is another thing you'll want to watch carefully as it will be easy to lose and I've seen no spares available. Using a landing pad may be an especially good idea with the Anafi to help prevent chipped edges on the prop blades as debris is blown around on takeoff and landing. I haven't tried HDR mode since from what I've seen it tends to oversaturate colors and lose detail in some image areas. Perhaps this can be improved. Standard output has good color and detail. That's impressive because when you look at the DNG image from the sensor, there's nearly fisheye level distortion and I found it difficult to come up with very good color balance using standard Adobe Camera Raw color temp and tint controls. The raw images from this drone aren't great if you like to tile and stitch high res panoramas. This drone should be able to take tiles for aerial 360 images with its ability to look upward. There is no tool in the app or drone for automatic stitching, and the camera is locked in landscape orientation. The case for the drone isn't bad, but there's no case for the controller. I found a case for a game controller that works. You also need a good quality short USB-C cable to connect your phone to the controller. There's a single charging cable provided, but I use that for charging only and got a data-rated cable for the phone connection. If you want to use a tablet, then you'll need a third party bracket since the controller clamp can't open wide enough for even a small tablet. There's a bracket for DJI controllers that has a plate that can fit the Anafi controller. The bracket has an arm and larger clamp that can hold a tablet. You'll also find 3D printed parts offered that retrofit the controller to hold a tablet. The Parrot app offers "geofencing" as an option, but I think that just means that you limit the flight radius of the drone to a set distance. To my knowledge, there's nothing in the app that will notify you of flight restrictions, so you should check with the AirMap app before flying. I was able to unlock the two paid modes for following and flight plan for only 99 cents each. I'm not sure if that's the new price, a promotion, or if I got a discount because I checked to share flight data with Parrot. I have yet to test any of the automated flight and tracking modes, nor have I flown in sport mode. I got a second battery for the Anafi delivered today from BH. I hope that means there's a good supply now for other buyers. Replacement props are now in stock too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet flier I enjoyed flying Parrots Bebop 2 for a couple of years and decided to upgrade to the Anafi and am very satisfied. I have nothing but praise for the flying and photography characteristics .. portable too. The software is a breeze too. Definitely an upgrade from Bebop.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous videos... Overall a great product. However, it only goes for 1/2 miles (not 2.5 miles) before it comes back home as the connection is lost. Maybe a software update will fix this major issue.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great drone for your money Love this drone!!! A great product for the price! Easy to download and easy to use app makes it SO user friendly. The camera quality is very very good. The SD mount is a little outdated I feel. Would be five stars if it just had obstacle avoidance.

    Are there neutral density filters available? I cannot find any on the internet. Does have threads for screw on filter if so what size please?
    Asked by: john d.
    Yes, Freewell makes filter kits for the Anafi. I got their Essentials kit with six filters. The filters are friction fit on the Anafi's camera.

    question

    Can you tell me please the Autopilot system. Is it running Ardupilot? Does it have HDMI output port on controller?
    Asked by: Ed K.
    It does have some automated piloting software features such as cameraman and follow me , but some of these features require in app purchases of around $18 US dollars at the time of my writing.

    Is Parrot or third party expected to produce ND filters for the Anafi in future?
    Asked by: Tony J.
    Freewell makes ND, polarizer, and ND+polarizer filter kits for the Anafi. They friction fit just like the lens cap.
