Airborne Image Making: DJI's Latest DronesShow Off the Bigger Picture

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.
