DJI CP.PT.000549 overview

  • 1Description

The Phantom 4 Pro+ from DJI boasts a 3-axis-stabilized gimbal camera with a 20MP, 1" CMOS sensor capable of shooting up to 4K/60fps video and well as photo bursts at up to 14 fps. The hull has been updated from the previous Phantom 4, now featuring magnesium alloy construction for increased rigidity and reduced weight. The FlightAutonomy system adds dual rear-vision sensors plus infrared sensing for a total of five directions of obstacle sensing and four directions of obstacle avoidance. Compared to the Phantom 4 Advanced variant, the Pro features the noted four, rather than two, directions of obstacle avoidance and offers a 5.8 GHz channel for the Lightbridge link, in addition to 2.4 GHz.

The Phantom 4 Pro+ features a high-luminance display integrated into the remote controller.

Gimbal Camera with 1" CMOS Sensor

The onboard camera features a first for the Phantom line: a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. A custom-engineered lens made up of eight elements is arranged in seven groups. The camera boasts a mechanical aperture that eliminates rolling shutter distortion that can occur when taking images of fast moving subjects or when flying at high speed and a mechanical focus.
1" CMOS Sensor
Sensor size is often more important to image quality than the number of pixels, because a larger sensor has dynamic range, better signal-to-noise ratio, and boosted low light performance. The 1" 20MP CMOS sensor in the Phantom 4 Pro+ is almost four times the size of the Phantom 4's 1/2.3" sensor. It uses larger pixels and has a maximum ISO of up to 12,800 as well as increased contrast.
H.264 and H.265 4K Video Recording
Powerful video processing supports H.264 4K videos at 60 fps or H.265 4K at 30 fps, both recorded in a 100 Mbps bitrate. Advanced sensors and processors ensure everything is captured with more image detail and the image data needed for manipulation in post-production.
Production-Optimized 4K
An enhanced video processing system allows video to be captured in cinema- and production- optimized DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) at 60 fps and a bitrate of 100 Mbps. The Phantom 4 Pro+ also supports the H.265 video codec at 30 fps in 4K resolution. For a given bitrate, H.265 doubles the amount of image processing as H.264, resulting in significantly enhanced image quality from a more efficient compression. Record in the high dynamic range D-log mode to make the most of this image data for color grading.
High Resolution Lens
The Phantom 4 Pro+ camera has an aerial-optimized f/2.8 wide-angle lens with a 24 mm equivalent focal length. It features eight elements — two aspherical — arranged in seven groups that fit into a smaller, more compact frame. Its images are consistently detailed with low distortion and low dispersion, ensuring that photos and videos are sharp and vivid.
Mechanical Shutter
Capturing objects moving at high speed has always been a challenge for flying cameras using an electronic shutter. This is why the Phantom 4 Pro+ is the first DJI Phantom to use a mechanical shutter and a large-aperture prime lens. A maximum mechanical shutter speed of 1/2000-second eliminates motion blur and "jello effect" caused by shooting a fast moving object with a rolling electronic shutter. The electronic shutter has also been improved with a max shutter speed of 1/8000-second, and a there is Burst Mode shoot capable of shooting 14 fps at 20 megapixels to catch the perfect moment.

Remote Controller with Lightbridge HD Video Link

The Phantom 4 Remote Controller with 1080p Display controller integrates an upgraded Lightbridge HD video transmission system that adds 5.8 GHz transmission support. The ability to choose between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz allows pilots to cut through interference and eliminates image lag caused when flying in an area with extensive 2.4 GHz frequency use. Normally, Wi-Fi video transmission systems use a 2.4 GHz frequency to work with a controller using a 5.8 GHz frequency, as this prevents interference that can occur when both use the same frequency.
Lightbridge HD Video Link
The Lightbridge HD video transmission system used in the Phantom 4 Pro+ uses TDM (Time Division Multiplexing) to transmit signals, allowing it to send controller signals and receive video transmission signals at the same frequency. As the 2.4 GHz frequency band is often affected by Wi-Fi, 4G cell towers, and other types of interference in urban areas, a 5.8 GHz band will increase transmission reliability. When switched on, the Phantom 4 The Phantom 4 Pro+ features a high-luminance display integrated into the remote controller. evaluates local signal levels, automatically choosing the transmission frequency with the lowest level of interference. This enables a maximum video transmission range of 4.3 miles.
Integrated 1080p Display
A 5.5" 1080p screen integrated w offers 1000 cd/m² of brightness, more than twice as bright as conventional smart devices. It makes bright, vivid colors easily visible in direct sunlight. With this screen, a mobile device is not required, simplifying pre-flight preparations. As the DJI GO app is built into the screen, hardware and software can be fully optimized, further reducing video lag. Integration of an HDMI port, microSD card slot, microphone, embedded loudspeaker, and Wi-Fi connection allow images to be edited inside DJI GO to be shared almost instantly. Lastly, a five-hour battery life makes the Phantom 4 Pro+ a complete aerial imaging solution.

Intelligent Flight Modes

With Draw, simply draw a route on screen and the Phantom 4 Pro+ will move in that direction while keeping its altitude locked. This allows the pilot to focus on camera control and enables more complex shots. There are two Draw modes that can be used in different scenarios:

Standard: The aircraft follows the route at a constant speed with the camera facing in the direction of flight.
Free: The aircraft only moves along the route when instructed. In this mode, the camera can face in any direction during a flight.
Following fast-moving objects can be very challenging, but advanced, image-recognition algorithms used by the Phantom 4 Pro+ allow it to recognize and track an object while keeping it in frame. This algorithm also recognizes a range of subjects, from people to vehicles to animals, and will adjust its flight dynamics to match, ensuring smoother shots. Pilots can now choose between:

Trace: Follow behind or in front of a subject, avoiding obstacles automatically.
Profile: Fly alongside a subject at a variety of angles to get profile shots of the subject.
Spotlight: Keep the camera trained on a subject while the aircraft flies almost anywhere.
Fly in any direction visible on-screen with a simple tap. Tap anywhere on-screen to smoothly adjust the direction of flight while automatically avoiding obstacles and tap the screen again or use control sticks to change direction. An AR route function shows the aircraft's real-time flight direction for reference as its route is adjusted. As it can be difficult to control altitude, course, speed and camera pitch simultaneously using joysticks, TapFly Free allows a pilot to set the direction of flight, allowing them to turn the Phantom 4 Pro+ or tilt the gimbal as required without changing the direction of flight. In total, there are now three TapFly modes:

TapFly Forward: Tap to fly in the selected direction
TapFly Backward: Tap to fly in the opposite direction of the tap, i.e. tap in the bottom right corner of the screen to fly backward towards the top left.
TapFly Free: Lock the forward direction of the Phantom without locking the camera direction allowing it to turn as it flies.

Note: Obstacle Avoidance is not available with TapFly Free.
Return to Home
In its Return to Home mode, the Phantom 4 Pro+ can automatically choose the best route to return home depending on environmental conditions. It records its route as it flies, allowing it to return along the same route avoiding obstacles if the control signal is disconnected.

Based on its altitude at the time of disconnection, the Phantom 4 Pro is also able to adjust its flight path to avoid obstacles it has seen during its flight. At takeoff, the Phantom 4 Pro+ will record the scene below and compare its recording with what it sees as it returns, for more precise landing. It can also detect the ground to see whether there is suitable spot for landing. If any obstacles are found, or there is water on the ground, it will alert the pilot and hover at an appropriate height, helping the aircraft to land more safely.
Gesture Mode
With Gesture Mode, selfies can be captured using a few gestures without the remote controller. Computer vision technology allows the Phantom 4 Pro+ to take instructions through gestures. The subject simply lifts their arms when facing the camera and the aircraft will recognize this movement by locking on and placing the subject in the center of the frame. When ready for a photo, the subject holds their arms out to signal the aircraft. A three second countdown will begin, making time to strike a pose, allowing moments to be captured without the remote control.

Flight Control System

Flight Modes
Different productions require different flight characteristics, and the Phantom 4 Pro offers three modes for flight: P, A and S. Switching between them allows pilots to get the control they need, whether they seek smoothness, simplicity, intelligent navigation, or speed. In Position Mode (P), TapFly, ActiveTrack, obstacle sensing and positioning features are available. Sport Mode (S) adds extra agility and higher speed, reaching 45 mph . Attitude Mode (A) switches off satellite stabilization and holds the Phantom 4 Pro+'s altitude. It is ideal for experienced pilots looking to capture smoother footage. Tripod Mode, which limits speed to 4 mph provides precision control for fine framing and indoor flying. Both the infrared sensing system and vision sensors are enabled in these modes for a safer flight experience.
Sensor Redundancy
The Phantom 4 Pro+ features dual compass modules and dual IMU units, making it more reliable when compared to many hexacopters and octocopers. Compasses and IMUs are important sensors to ensure a stable flight and the Phantom 4 Pro+ constantly compares the data it receives through both pairs. This data is run through various algorithms to check accuracy, and any inaccurate data is simply discarded without affecting flight, keeping flight steady and reliable.
Intelligent Battery System
Professional aerial imaging benefits from longer flight times. The Phantom 4 Pro+ features a maximum flight time of 30 minutes, providing more time in the air to capture the perfect shot. The DJI GO app shows battery lifetime and calculates remaining flight times according to distance traveled and more. It will give alerts when it reaches a minimum safe amount required for a safe journey back to the takeoff point. An advanced battery management system is also in place to prevent overcharging and over draining. When placed in longer term storage, batteries will discharge power to maintain good health.

    DJI CP.PT.000549 reviews

    Phantom 4 Pro+ Quadcopter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 77.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Photo UAS Especially from B&H If you are reading reviews here, you've likely heard the P4Pro+ is an excellent machine for those of us who want to get good still and moving images from the air. Based on my experience, what you have heard is accurate. With a bit of manual reading and some firmware updates even a novice can get great shots from an easily controlled smart drone. Yes, the 4Pro+ is a winner. Many buyers who have gone directly to DJI to purchase are now pitching online fits about delayed delivery and no help from customer service. Based on previous good experiences I pre-ordered from B&H, enjoyed helpful updates from customer service, am am now flying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 pro still camera quality There are a plethora of reviews about this quadcopter on youtube etc.etc. etc. . And yes the features are great...Tripod mode = a sloth in the sky (I love it), Avoidance aware - works great, I have the pro plus - Faster setup, works perfect, has extra hdmi out that I use. But the reason I purchased the 4 Pro is for the still image quality. Video is great, but so was my phantom 3. But the sensor on the 4 pro claims to be the same as on the Sony Rx100. I own a RX100 & shot my own side by side test. I can not tell the difference, I can pull out extreme shadow and highlight tones in raw & sharpness to be Identical. If you want a great quality camera in the sky, it has arrived in the phantom 4 pro.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes This is a nice model. Get the one with the remote control that has the built-in view screen, it is well worth it, don't need a smart phone. Out of the box it didn't work, so don't waste your time trying to figure it out. Just call the toll-free technical help or else use the live chat to get them to walk you through updating the firmware first before doing anything else, then it worked good. The directions are worthless, study all of the You-Tube tutorials, many good ones are helpful. You definitely need the ND filters for videos, but not for stills. I'd get an extra micro-SD card for when you loose the one that pops right out of the side of the drone body.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this drone! Best quality for the money! I finally got it out to fly today. It takes awhile to get everything up to speed with new firmware upgrades....(Each battery I have 4 has to be run with the firmware upgrades along with the control. A really easy to fly drone with incredible range. I really like the attached monitor as well. Just finished editing my first pics and video and the difference in the sensor vs my Mavic Pro is phenomenal! Save up and get this over the Basic Phantom 4 , the Mavic, or the new mini...Spark. The quality of this camera sensor is much, much, better. As far as handling.....The Mavic Pro is just as good....Just disappointed in some of the video quality.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maps are Not Available with the Pro-Plus Only 3 stars Max for right now. One of the main functions for the Pro-Plus is not available with little hope for a remedy. It's been a problem for months on the '4 Plus'. No maps are downloadable for the Pro Plus. The only ones available on the controller are for China. This is due to a longstanding 'glitch' between DJI's new maps vendor and their ability to send the maps over a network to the 'Plus' controller. I can't give it more than three stars for an item that promises certain features but falls short if it cannot provide maps. This is an ongoing issue.. I'm not pleased.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome camera, not so awesome controller. I have owned every iteration of the Phantom line. The camera in the P4Pro+ is fantastic and a noticeable improvement over previous generations. However If I was buying it again I wouldn't get the plus. There are a lot of limitation to the built in controller, like no 3rd party app support. Also if DJI go crashes you have to reboot the entire controller....kinda hard to do in flight. I recommend this Phantom just get the non-screen (+) version and hook up your own phone/tablet. Also recommend a custom wrap to set yours apart from all the white quads out there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine Especially from B&H Based on my first few flights it seems all the enthusiastic reviews were accurate. Flight, still and video all work very well -- much better than I expected from this price range. There are a few firmware issues DJI is still addressing but that's true of many complex new products. I ordered from B&H before the P4 Pro+ was in stock with no estimate of arrival. Many others ordered directly from the manufacturer with the expectation of quick arrival and were sorely disappointed by delay and unresponsive support. As usual, B&H exceeded expectations.
    Date published: 2016-12-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best drone for the money bar none So far, so good. I flew the Phantom 4 and realized I needed to buy a quadcopter. The Pro+ came out shortly after this flight - good timing for me. With the still camera resolution being absolutely adequate for all my needs and the options for 120fps 1080p and the higher frame rate for 4K, this dude was a no-brainer. Quadcopter arrived as described and has made a half-dozen flights so far. Return to home works, the built-in screen on the controller is AMAZING and totally the way to go, and everything that was great about the Phantom 4 is great about this plus some. So far, so good.
