As the final grains of sand sift out of Amazon's Prime Day hourglass, let's look to the skies and recognize the seriously great deal being offered for a few more hours.
Let's be honest, the lofty and capable DJI Air 2S drone was already a fantastic value to confidently outfit yourself with an impressive drone package, but it's now being offered by both Amazon (opens in new tab) and Best Buy (opens in new tab) with a very generous 20% discount.
But the clock is ticking! Get off the fence and pull the trigger on the DJI Air 2S Combo for just $1039.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) or Best Buy (opens in new tab). We've never seen it at a price that low before. The premium setup includes everything you need to get up and running, cruising your craft over vine and vale, filming dynamic cinematic-style footage in no time at all.
In November 2021, we reviewed the DJI Air 2S and gave it 4.5 stars out of 5, ranking it one of the best drones available on the market. The only thing we didn't like was the fixed f/2.8 aperture which meant we couldn't control the exposure whilst the drone was in the air. We also found that ND filters are essential, but luckily this combo comes with them included, hurrah!

The DJI Air 2S is a mere 595g, you could be forgiven for thinking it's a toy, but it absolutely isn't. It is an incredibly exciting bit of kit for photographers and videographers alike.
It has a 1-inch CMOS sensor and many powerful automations to help shoot stunning 5.4k footage. It has a flight time of 31 minutes (although this is more like 25 minutes in real life). It has a top speed of a whopping 67km/h so can keep up with most non-motor sports action.
Solo content creators will love the three intelligent flight modes of the DJI Air 2S. They are: FocusTrack, which keeps the subject in the center of the shot, Spotlight 2.0 which is best used for stationary objects and finally ActiveTrack which follows behind or alongside your subject maintaining distance and altitude.
The connection between the controller and the drone is strong and reliable and it features the all-important return home feature for added peace of mind. So make sure to snag it before it flies away forever.
