What is an active track?
This time we will introduce “Active Track” which is installed as a function of DJI’s latest dronon phantom 4.
With ActiveTrack (active track) function, Phantom 4 automatically recognizes and tracks the subject without the tracking device or transmitter.
If you turn on tracking POI function, you can shoot while drawing a circle around the moving subject.
Quote: From the DJI website
In short it is a function that decides the “subject” and registers it automatically when it registers around the subject.
First, let’s start with “DJI GO application” “propo” “drone body” started.
First of all, tap the part attached with “Akumaru” at the lower left of “smart” screen.
Then you will see the following screen.
There are four menus, please tap “active track”.
Then, there is an instruction “Please let me fly to altitude 3 m or more”.
Just let ‘phantom 4’ rise to a height of 3 m or more!
After 3 m we will proceed to the next.
Then you will be prompted to drag “Subject”.
If you drag as directed, the subject will be enclosed in “green”.
If “red” comes out, the distance between the subject and the drone is too close, so keep your distance from the subject.
I think that this distance was about 5 m.
Keep an appropriate distance and press the green “GO” button, “active track” will work.
Following the movement of the subject, phantom 4 comes with us.
Also, you can operate the drones in the propo while the “active track” is operating.
As a result, you can not only track the motion, but also capture the subject from various angles at 360 degrees.
I could not take a picture by myself, so please watch the following video.

What did you think?
Using this “active track” automatically keeps distance with the subject, so you can easily shoot videos that you have to shoot using large-scale tools until now.
Besides, it is not a skilled professional, it will be awesome to be able to use anyone if you learn a little phantom 4 operation.
You can also use this function to shoot sports such as motocross, bicycle and snowboard from a powerful viewpoint, and to be active in various fields such as film production and promotion.
Those who have phantom 4 are definitely sure to take advantage of this “active track”.
