Unless one's a professional with an assigned photographer (or they've got a friend with aspirations of getting into sports photography), the new Airdog 2 camera drone is the best way to snap high quality action shots of oneself. The camera drone uses personal tracking technology to stay locked onto its target, providing high quality action footage that requires no input from the owner. It lets athletes stay focused on their extreme sports rather than capturing those feats for posterity.

Though the Airdog 2 drone isn't the only photography device to track its subject, it uses a unique system to do so. Most competitors make use of a combination of computer vision and smartphone-enabled GPS, whereas the Airdog 2 uses a battery-powered wrist- or arm-worn leash. The benefit of this system is that it will keep the drone locked on even if its subject passes out of sight (e.g. under a bridge or beneath a tree canopy,) and it also means that users need not keep their smartphones on them while doing their stunts.
