DJI launches a Has­sel­blad

Practical Photography (UK) - - News -

Aerial im­pre­sario DJI has up­dated its pop­u­lar ground­break­ing Mavic Pro drone with a brace of new op­tions. Com­ing in at £1299, the Mavic 2 Pro is a com­pact, fold­ing drone that boasts a Has­sel­blad L1D-20c cam­era. It packs a 20MP 1in sen­sor, f/2.8-f/11 ad­justable aper­ture and amaz­ing 10-bit 4K video.

The Mavic 2 Zoom, which costs £1099, pairs a 1/2.3in 12.1MP sen­sor with a 24-85mm op­ti­cal zoom lens. This gives you a huge level of ver­sa­til­ity when com­pos­ing your shots. It also adds in a new Quick­Shot called Dolly Zoom, which recre­ates the clas­sic cin­e­matic tech­nique for a vis­ual warp­ing ef­fect.

Be­yond the dif­fer­ent cam­eras, both drones are iden­ti­cal. They of­fer the more ad­vanced Ac­tiveTrack 2.0 for 3D ob­ject track­ing, a new Hyper­lapse mode and in­creased 31-minute flight time. The Om­ni­di­rec­tional Ob­sta­cle Sens­ing sys­tem is found on every side of the drone, al­low­ing for more re­ac­tive avoid­ance, and the max­i­mum speed can hit a blis­ter­ing 45mph.

Above DJI has re­placed the orig­i­nal Mavic Pro with a brace of op­tions. Both of­fer iden­ti­cal per­for­mance, though the Pro fea­tures a Has­sel­blad cam­era de­sign, while the Zoom boasts a 24-48mm lens.
