The DJI Mavic 2 Pro + Zoom Tech Briefing + Q&A

The Mavic 2 (Price Check) is DJI’s most advanced camera drone ever built, designed for professionals, aerial photographers and content creators.

Incorporating the iconic folding design of the Mavic Pro, the Mavic 2 features new gimbal-stabilized cameras and advanced features like Hyperlapse and ActiveTrack for easier and more dynamic storytelling.

With an impressive flight time of up to 31 minutes and a more stable video transmission system, the Mavic 2 offers an expanded flight experience for capturing even more epic shots.

DJI is offering two variants – the Mavic 2 Pro and the Mavic 2 Zoom.

The DJI Mavic 2 Pro : Superior Image Quality with Hasselblad

Co-engineered with Hasselblad, the Mavic 2 Pro is the world’s first drone to feature a Hasselblad camera. The Hasselblad camera features a 1-inch CMOS sensor with a 10-bit Dlog-M colour profile that allows it to capture four times the colour levels per channel of the Mavic Pro camera.

Its camera can also capture 20 MP photos using Hasselblad’s Natural Colour Solution (HNCS) technology, with an adjustable aperture from f/2.8 to f/11. It also records 4K HDR videos with 10-bit colour and Hybrid Log-Gamma.

We will have a preview of the DJI Mavic 2 Pro out shortly.

The DJI Mavic 2 Zoom : Optical and Digital Zoom

The Mavic 2 Zoom is DJI’s first foldable consumer drone with optical zoom. Its camera combines a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor with a 24-48 mm lens, with 2X digital zoom. This allows it to simulate a 96 mm telephoto lens capable of capturing lossless video in full HD resolution.

Exclusive to the Mavic 2 Zoom is a new Dolly Zoom Quickshot mode that creates an incredible perspective by automatically zooming in, as it flies away from its subject. This keeps the subject the same size while the full background of the scene is revealed. This feature used to be reserved to professional cinematographers with serious resources and time to setup the shot.
