DJI Announces Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom Drones - 30/08/2018


DJI has unveiled the newest members of its consumer drone family, the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom. Part of the Mavic 2 Series, each drone provides specific camera functionality that will appeal to a wide range of pilots and aerial photographers.

The Mavic 2 Pro features a 3-axis gimbal-stabilised Hasselblad camera with a 20MP 1" CMOS sensor that’s capable of capturing UHD 4K video with 10-bit HDR support. It uses an adjustable f/2.8 - f/11 aperture and supports a 10-bit Dlog-M colour profile for greater dynamic range - all of this making the Mavic 2 Pro one of the most sophisticated flying cameras on the market.

The Zoom, on the other hand, features a 12MP 1/2.3" CMOS sensor and gives users the option of 2X optical zoom (24-48mm) for detailed aerial close-ups. It also comes with zoom-specific features not found on the Pro, such as 4x Lossless Zoom FHD Video. Regardless of variant, both drones provide H.265 compression at 100Mb/s.

Camera differences aside, both variants share many of the same features, including the travel-friendly folding style and each employs low-noise propellers to keep prop buzz to a minimum. They also come equipped with omni-directional obstacle sensing, so you’ll get 360 degrees of protection and collision avoidance. In terms of performance, the Pro and Zoom top out at 44.7mph and has a 31 minute flight time. Also, both variants come with 8GB of onboard storage.

DJI also bolstered several software features, including upgrades to the Active Track mode, additional Quickshots, and the all-new Hyperlapse mode, which lets pilots create professional-looking time-lapse aerial shots.

You can pick up either drone as a stand-alone flyer or combine it with a Fly More Kit for additional props, batteries, and a carrying case. The all-new Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom are available for order now at B&H Photo.
