There are drone options that can support almost every camera on the market these days, from the small built-in ones, right up to a Red Epic or Alexa Mini with PL mount primes attached.

 

So you can get a very close match to most a-unit cameras. just a matter of how much you can afford to spend really.

Bala ji Jan is absolutely right. You gotta decide That part coz there are lots of governing factors. 1. What's your budget coz you can just go on with drones in the the market, what we face problem in India is no one wanna give his red or alexa on drone fearing of damage and crash. I can probably understand what you are looking at keeping in mind the place you belong to. You should probably use Dji inspire raw 4K for your shoot.
