Chinese drone manufacturer DJI has just announced not one, but two new flagship drones – Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom.
Mavic 2 Pro
Co-engineered with medium format camera maker Hasselblad, the Mavic 2 Pro is the world’s first drone to feature an integrated Hasselblad camera which houses a 1-inch CMOS sensor with a 10-bit Dlog-M color profile.
Other highlights of the new Hasselblad camera include 4K 10-bit HDR support, adjustable aperture from f/2.8 – f/11 and the ability to capture 20-megapixel still images with Hasselblad Natural Color Solution (HNCS) technology for colour accuracy.Buy Mavic 2 Pro from DJI
Mavic 2 Zoom
The new Mavic 2 Zoom is DJI’s first drone with zoom lenses, letting videographers get closer to the subject quickly by combining 2x optical zoom (24 – 48mm) and 2x digital zoom to simulate a 96mm telephoto lens to capture video in lossless full HD resolution.
Besides zoom, the camera also has a hybrid auto-focus feature that combines phase and contrast detection for increased focus accuracy and speeds up to 40% faster than before. Users can also make use of the Super Resolution feature that stitches 9 photos together for a highly-detailed 48-megapixel image.Buy Mavic 2 Zoom from DJI
