Airborne Image Making: DJI’s Latest DronesShow Off the Bigger Picture
NEW YORK — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 24, 2018 — At a live event in New York, DJI unveiled the newest members of its consumer drone family, the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom. Part of the Mavic 2 Series, each drone provides specific camera functionality that will appeal to a wide range of pilots and aerial photographers.
Starting with the Mavic 2 Pro: This variant features a 3-axis gimbal-stabilized Hasselblad camera with a 20MP 1" CMOS sensor that’s capable of capturing UHD 4K video with 10-bit HDR support. It uses an 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 flying cameras on the market. The Zoom, on the other hand, 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 not found on the Pro, such as 4x Lossless Zoom FHD Video. Regardless of variant, both drones provide H.265 compression at 100Mb/s.

They also come equipped with omnidirectional obstacle sensing, so you’ll get 360 degrees of protection and collision avoidance.
