For video quality, we shoot a variety of clips at various resolutions and frame rates, including the maximum available. We film high contrast and low light scenes, along with close-ups of people to evaluate detail and skin tones. Special automated modes like DJI’s Quickshots are also tested. These uncompressed files are then evaluated on a calibrated monitor, along with the drone’s still photos. Stills are shot at maximum resolution and, if available, in Raw. We check for colour, noise and dynamic range, and also look at other shooting modes like HDR and panoramas.

The Cheerwing Syma X5SW, also known by the name of Cheerwing Syma X5SWFPV Explorers 2 2.4 GHz 4CH 6-Axis Gyro RC Headless Quadcopter UFO with HD Wifi Camera is a mid-range drone, good for both indoor and outdoor flying. This compatibility of flying this drone both in indoor and outdoor has a great influence for a purchaser to go with this flying machine. This drone is equipped with four brushless engines, which sport out the coreless technology. Moreover, this nifty addition prevents the drone’s rotors from overheating during an extended light. As for its design, the Cheerwing Syma X5SWFPV Explorers 2, looks both intimidating and functional. However, upon closer view, the drone’s body suspiciously resembles DJI Phantom’s design minus the fan guards. The battery capability can be said like as -the whole thing is powered by a 3.7V 500 mAh Lithium-Polymer battery, which can keep the drone up in the air 5 to 7 minutes. Now talking about the other specifications-however, with the fan guards attached, the battery’s life decreases to 6 minutes, and with the camera switched on all time, the user will only get 4 minutes of flying. The controller with this drone has shown immense declaration of becoming a good drone for the first time flyers and promises to be in the upfront region in competition with the same category drones in the market. As for the bottom part of the controller, it contains a small LCD which can show some useful information like thrust, inclination, and cruise speed. Landing and take-off are smooth, and so are the in-flight controls. There’s virtually no lag between the drones’s remote and the quadcopter, or any sudden loss of signal. Now, telling about the camera and capturing capability of this drone. Tbis drone is highly affordable. However, the drone’s camera is not equipped with any SD card slots. So that means that every time the user wants to record something, they will have to do it through Syma’s mobile application. So, this is a kind of bad aspect of this drone that we are discussing about. However, the drone does have its share of issues, starting with the shaky, poor video/photo issues and ending with the wind bug. But as we consider all the things that is in offer with this drone, we can say that overall, the drone’s performance is satisfactory, and it is liked the fact that there is virtually no lag in controls. The ease of controlling this flying machine outperforms its downsides in a large margin. Lastly, a purchaser can go with this drone without much to think or worry about.
Most still cameras are 5 megapixels or higher. Therefore, do not be fooled by the claims of HD for a camera when the manufacturer is relying on the resolution for still photos. It is true what they are saying but not the complete story. Having HD resolution for still images does not explain the possibility of also having a lower quality for video-image capture.
