Blog 61 - DJI Mavic 2 Pro has landed, and have a few hrs of flight only but the quality difference in the camera and drone itself is remarkably better.
For the Mavic 2 Pro, DJI partnered with high-end camera-maker Hasselblad to build a camera with a one-inch sensor. That’s four times larger than the image sensor on the 1st model and the zoom version.
New front, rear, top and bottom sensors giving the Mavic omnidirectional obstacle avoidance, it has a larger battery giving you a maximum flight time around 31 minuets and a top speed of over 45mph
The Pro can also shoot 10-bit 4K Dlog-M at 100Mbps. That’s basically like shooting RAW video. Footage can be filmed in 4K at 24, 25 or 30fps, 2.7K at 24, 25, 30, 48, 50 or 60fps or 1080p at up to 120fps (which plays back in a smooth slow motion), with a choice of MP4 and MOV formats and H.264 and H.265 encoding.
It’s quieter than the original Mavic Pro as well, sounding a little less like a swarm of angry bees.
In addition I picked the new DJI Smart Controller that will look at separately, will carry out further review of the Mavic 2 in three months once I've got a few more flying hrs out of it.
