The DJI Mavic 2 Pro Drone Preview + Tech Briefing

DJI just introduced the Mavic 2 Pro – the world’s first drone with an integrated Hasselblad camera. Let’s check out the tech briefing by DJI’s Global Director of Communication Kevin On, and our hands-on preview of the new DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone!

 

The Official DJI Mavic 2 Tech Briefing

The Mavic 2 Pro is DJI’s most advanced camera drone ever built, designed for professionals, aerial photographers and content creators who want a drone with the best possible image quality.

Incorporating the iconic folding design of the Mavic Pro, the Mavic 2 Pro features a new gimbal-stabilized Hasselblad camera 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 Pro offers an expanded flight experience for capturing even more epic shots.

 

The DJI Mavic 2 Pro

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.

4K HDR Videos With H.265 Encoding

The Mavic 2 Pro captures 4K video with a maximum bitrate of 100 megabits per second using the H.265 compression codec. For photographers, new Enhanced High Dynamic Range capabilities blend a sequence of photos for ghost-free high dynamic range photos. This gives the Mavic 2 Pro an impressive 14 stops of dynamic range.

New Intelligent Tools For Cinematic Shots

The Mavic 2 Pro offers new intelligent flight modes for almost effortless professional-quality results. Hyperlapse produces shots that show the passing of time. You can also choose between Circle, Course Lock, Waypoint or Free mode to create timelapses with a simple tap of a button in the DJI GO 4 Mobile App:

  • Free – pilots the drone manually while shooting a Hyperlapse video.
  • Circle – automatically flies the drone in a circular pattern around a subject you select to create a timelapse video that captures the action.
  • Course Lock – keeps the camera fixed on shooting subject while the drone flies in a straight direction to create a unique perspective.
  • Waypoint – plans a complex flight path based on both altitude and GPS coordinates to capture complex shots.

ActiveTrack 2.0 offers a combination of autonomous tracking and obstacle sensing capabilities never before seen in a DJI drone. Using the main camera and the front dual vision cameras, the Mavic 2 Pro creates a three-dimensional map of the area in front of it, and uses new trajectory algorithms to analyze motion and predict the subject’s path up to three seconds in the future.

When tracking a target, the Mavic 2 Pro can recognize and avoid obstacles while shooting your target without interruption. It can stay on target, even if your subject momentarily goes behind an obstacle, and can track the subject at higher speeds of up to 44 mph (72 km/h).

Safer, Smarter and Stable Flight

The Mavic 2 Pro has an upgraded FlightAutonomy system with a more powerful central processor that delivers more accurate obstacle sensing and safer flight. For the first time ever in a DJI drone, Mavic 2 Zoom has 10 sensors on all sides of the aircraft to automatically detect obstacles in its path and help prevent collisions

An improved Advanced Pilot Assistance System (APAS) allows the aircraft to analyze its surrounding environment and automatically fly around obstacles without stopping. In addition, the Mavic 2 Pro has a Bottom Auxiliary Light that turns on automatically to ensure safe and precise landings in low-light situations.

A newly designed OcuSync 2.0 video transmission system enables a more stable connection between the drone and its remote controller. The system features stronger interference resistance and auto-switching capabilities that supports both 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency bands with the capability to use different frequencies for uplink and downlink data streams.

It delivers 1080p video transmission feeds at a distance of up to 8 km, and original resolution photos in JPEG can be saved directly to your mobile device.

Aerodynamic Design and Extended Flight Time

The new redesigned and more aerodynamic airframe reduces body drag by up to 19% compared to the Mavic Pro, allowing the Mavic 2 Pro to fly at speeds of up to 44 mph (72 km/h) in Sport mode.

Combined with a more efficient, quieter propulsion system and noise reducing propellers, the Mavic 2 Pro has a maximum flight time of up to 31 minutes.

To ensure crisp photos and smooth, shake-free footage, the Mavic 2 Pro houses an ultra-precise three-axis mechanical gimbal to stabilize its camera even during high-speed motion. Photos and videos can be saved directly to the drone using its 8 GB onboard storage. All DJI users have control over how their data is stored and managed, as part of DJI’s commitment to protecting its customers’ data.

A redesigned remote controller features detachable control sticks for ease of storage and portability. The Mavic 2 Pro is compatible with DJI Goggles with the gimbal (yaw) control range up to -75°¬– +75° in Head Tracking mode, offering users a more immersive FPV flight experience.

 

DJI Mavic 2 Pro Price + Availability

The DJI Mavic 2 Pro is priced at RM 6,599 (including SST) / ~US$ 1,649. The package will consist of the drone, battery, remote controller, charger, and four pairs of propellers.

A Fly More Kit, which consists of two additional batteries, a multi-battery charging hub, a car charger, a battery to power bank adapter, two pairs of propellers and a carrying bag, will retail at RM 1,399 (including SST) / ~US$ 350.

A gimbal replacement service for both variants will be available at a later date.

The DJI Mavic 2 Zoom Drone Preview + Tech Briefing

DJI just introduced the Mavic 2 Zoom – the world’s first foldable consumer drone with optical zoom capability. Let’s check out the tech briefing by DJI’s Global Director of Communication Kevin On, and our hands-on preview of the new DJI Mavic 2 Zoom!

 

The Official DJI Mavic 2 Tech Briefing

The Mavic 2 Zoom is DJI’s most advanced camera drone ever built, designed for professionals, aerial photographers and content creators who want a drone with optical zoom capability.

Incorporating the iconic folding design of the Mavic Pro, the Mavic 2 Zoom features a new gimbal-stabilized camera 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 Zoom offers an expanded flight experience for capturing even more epic shots.

 

The DJI Mavic 2 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.

4K HDR Videos With H.265 Encoding

The Mavic 2 Zoom captures 4K video with a maximum bitrate of 100 megabits per second using the H.265 compression codec. For photographers, new Enhanced High Dynamic Range capabilities blend a sequence of photos for ghost-free high dynamic range photos. This gives the Mavic 2 Zoom up to 13 stops of dynamic range.
