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
  • Optics engineered to reduce lens flair and chromatic aberrations in all situations

Parrot Anafi Reviews

Beware

By Christopher
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-25

I've owned about a half dozen of this aircraft and it's reasonably flyable and light enough to fly over people (if you're so inclined) and the camera is fairly high quality, BUT, be aware that Parrot does not provide any service after the warranty has expired. If you need repairs after the warranty has expired, you're basically on your own. Also, all of the refurbished units I have had have had issues. I have one now that's pristine and has been sitting unused for a year, but for some inexplicable reason has developed vertical camera error which means it's unflyable. How a drone can develop a problem rendering it inoperable while in storage is very strange to me.

Anafi Thermal is the Pro's Choice

By John
Rated 5 out of 5

The Anafi thermal drone is an excellent choice for licensed drone pilots. Although it has some design shortcomings, the drone supercedes them with its frame strength and affordable flir thermal imaging. The visual integrity is as good as drones costing much more and has a one and only verticle gimble. The Anafi is a multi task pro drone suitable for the artist or engineer. Dr Jack Vazzana

Works pretty great so far, enjoying the flights and experience

Camera has a warm center area. Parrot didn't correct.

I'm rather fond of the way the Parrot app works, and I like the Anafi's ability to look directly up. But this drone is a big disappointment for photography and video. Images and vide have an orange cast in a center circular area. It's extremely difficult to correct, and makes processing panoramas a real pain. Parrot replaced my drone after I complained and documented the problem, but to no avail. The replacement is exactly the same. And I see the orange cast on other owner's videos. It's not obvious when shooting some subjects, but over gray lakebed playas and snow, it's painfully obvious. Parrot support tries hard, but they're terrible at communication. If you're looking at Parrot as a DJI alternative, I can say from experience that DJI's products are much better made, have better range, and the image quality is superior.

First one wouldn't even start.  Second barely better.

The first Parrot Anafi arrived, I charged it up overnight, I attempted to fly it, but it wanted to install new firmware, so I said YES, but it never worked after that. I never got a single second of flight time with the first one. I sent it back, then several weeks later the second one arrived. It has flown several times but has several issues. For example, the drone will not shut down. Pressing the button does nothing. You have to detach the battery to kill it. Also, I can capture 1 or 2 videos, or a few photos, during a flight before it corrupts the last video or photo and refuses to take any more. If you can't take videos or photos reliably, then what's the point????? Parrot Support has asked for info, and info, and info, but they don't seem to have any interest in fixing or replacing the drone. Send them info, then wait a week or two for them to get back to you. It's been a HUGE waste of time and money. I will never buy another Parrot product. Poorly designed controller (the phone won't stay in place). Terrible product. Terrible support.

Don't buy!! Many problems!!

When it arrived, I charged it fully. Before attempting my first flight it wanted to update the firmware, which I did, but it never completed successfully even after 2 hours, which bricked the drone and it never flew a single time. B&H replaced it, but it took nearly 3 weeks to get the replacement. The second drone flew maybe 4 times but it would never shut off each time. It wanted to update the firmware, so I did, and it completed successfully. It still never shuts off and will only take a few photos before corrupting an image, thereby preventing any more photos or video from being recorded. Too many problems and I have spend way more time researching problems that flying it. A total waste of money as far as I'm concerned. Hope someone learns from my mistake and avoids Parrot.

I have a 4k Parrot and upgraded to the thermal. The package comes with everything you need, 3 batteries, charger and a tablet holder. All of these extras make the price that much better!

Can anyone speak to how well the Android app works; my DJI app crashes constantly during flight and I'm hoping the Parrot app is much better for Android?

Your performance will vary based on the device that you are using. Most customers with up to date phones do no have issues with the app.

Asked by: Christopher
Why does Parrot say this on their website?: "The warranty period is defined by the reseller from where you have purchased your Parrot drone." Doesn't sound like a factory warranty to me.
