Today, DJI unveiled the highly-anticipated follow-up to its groundbreaking Mavic Pro quadcopter: the all-new Mavic 2 series. This latest iteration comes in two separate configurations—the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom.
Starting with the Mavic 2 Pro: This variant features a powerful new Hasselblad camera with a 20MP 1" CMOS sensor that’s capable of capturing UHD 4K video with 10-bit HDR support. It also features adjustable f/2.8 - f/11 aperture and supports a 10-bit Dlog-M color profile for greater dynamic range—all of this making the Mavic 2 Pro one of the most sophisticated camera drones on the market. Meanwhile, the Mavic 2 Zoom 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, such as 4x Lossless Zoom FHD Video. Both variants also provide H.265 compression at 100Mb/s.
Both the Zoom and Pro feature the same portable folding style that helped make the original Mavic Pro such a fan favorite and utilize low-noise propellers—à la the Mavic Pro Platinum—to keep prop buzz to a minimum. They also come equipped with omnidirectional obstacle sensing, so you’ll get 360 degrees of protection and collision avoidance. In terms of performance, both the Pro and Zoom top out at 44 mph and feature a 31-minute flight time. And, as a bonus, 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 pre-order now at B&H Photo.
