DJI Mavic 2 Pro: Drone with Hasselblad Camera

Introduced on 23rd August 2018, DJI Mavic 2 Pro was a revolution in the Drones series of DJI Mavic. Though it is a little bit bigger than the original Mavic, yet the Mavic 2 Pro is more portable.

You can take the whole drone along with the charger, remote controller, or an extra battery in a camera bag. For the remote controller, charger, and battery you have bought, you will have to make a little more space.

Features and Specifications:

Camera and Sensor:

Well, the Mavic 2 Pro is powered with the all-new Hasselblad L1D-20c camera. The L1D-20c Hasselblad Natural Colour technology helps users to capture awesome 20-megapixel aerial shots in stunning colors.

DJI Mavic 2 Pro has a 1-inch CMOS sensor with an active sensing area four times more effective than the original Mavic Pro. The camera is a 4K camera, without a doubt, which provides high-quality photography.

This large sensor offers better performance with a more extensive ISO range. The maximum ISO lifted from 3200 to 12800, which is amazing.

Video and Photo Performance:

The Video and Photo performance of the Mavic 2 Pro is outstanding overall. But the features you get in a DSLR or mirrorless camera cannot expect at quite the same level.

The sensor of most drones looks like that of a high-quality mobile phone. But, appreciating the 20MP one-inch Hasselblad sensor, in terms of size and overall video and photo quality, the Mavic 2 Pro sensor is much closer to a premium compact.

Though there is comparatively a larger sensor than other consumer drones, still there is noticeable noise even at ISO 100. However, for significant impressions in the realm of 16 by 12 inches, DJI Mavic’s photo quality is good enough without incorporation.

Design and Remote Controller:

As incepted by its antecedent, the Mavic 2 Pro has a foldable design. It is the most portable drone because it allows the drone almost to bisect its track for moving.

The controller that comes with DJI Mavic 2 Pro is also compact and foldable with joysticks, which are curved safely to pack at the bottom of the controller. For use, the sticks need to be screwed in place.

The controller almost looks like a standard radio controller. Still, the sticks are used for quite different maneuvers to an RC car. So, before your first flight, it is necessary to familiarize yourself with them.

Functions and Flying Feature:

It is not much simple to fly the DJI Mavic 2 Pro. The built-in GPS section is appreciating, which holds the drone in position. The GPS prevents it from getting departed out of place by the wind. It has safety features like collision avoidance, which uses omnidirectional obstacle sensing that helps to save the drone from crashing.

You should not be dependent wholly on the object avoidance features; since these features are genuinely incredible but don’t let them soothe you into a false sense of security. They might not be able to stop the drone from crashing into obstacles.

Battery Life and Flight Time:

The battery life directly indicates the flight time. DJI Mavic 2 Pro can fly for up to 31 minutes, which is more realistically 20-25 minutes, with a maximum speed of up to 45mph (72kph).
