Israeli photographer Erez Marom was shooting in Hawaii last month. Marom flew his $1,500 DJI Phantom 4 camera drone too close to lava flows and accidentally melted part of the camera though he was able to capture some gorgeous photos of lava up-close.
The photos captured on this are incredible. Have a look
Luckily for Marom, the drone is still functional. Other than the plastic surrounding the camera being molten, it’s the same as before.
