DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom – New drones with 10bit recording

So the day finally came when DJI announced the full and confirmed details about their newest 2 drones. It’s an upgrade to the already wonderful DJI Mavic line.

The new drones are the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom. Biggest difference between them are the cameras. The Mavic 2 Pro now has 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. 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.

In addition DJI introduced new low-noise propellers. Also the battery life and flight range has been increased. They both come equipped with omni-directional obstacle sensing, so you’ll get 360 degrees of protection and collision avoidance. As an added bonus, both variants come with 8GB of onboard storage just like in my favorite little drone the DJI Mavic Air. In terms of performance, both the Pro and Zoom top out at 44 mph and feature a 31-minute flight time.

Right now you can pre-order the DJI Mavic 2 Pro on B&H (and Amazon soon).
