The presentation of UAVs from DJI was to take place on July 18, but it was decided to postpone it to a later date. Therefore, the novelties have shown only now – at the event in New York, which received the name “Look wider.” The drones Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom were introduced and they were able to surprise the sophisticated audience.
DJI Mavic 2 Pro
As for the older model, first of all, it is worth noting the new Hasselblad L1D-20c camera with a sensor at 20 Mp and a size of 1 inch. It allows you to change the aperture in the range f / 2,8-11. Thanks to improved features, the Pro version can now shoot 10-bit HDR video in 4K.
DJI Mavic 2 Zoom
The camera in the Zoom 12 Mp version, but it is capable of changing the focal length (24-48 mm). This provides a twofold optical zoom, thanks to which you can shoot distant objects, not flying up close to them. To ensure accuracy when focusing the image in the optical approximation, both phase and contrast modes are used. Therefore, the speed of autofocus has increased by 40 percent compared to the previous generation.
Both drones have a new Hyperlapse shooting function that allows you to shoot accelerated video in several modes: Free (with manual settings), Circle (by radius and with centre focus), Track fixing (direct movement), Point by point (user programmable). Added and the effect of Dolly Zoom, often used in kinematograph. It was first used by Alfred Hitchcock in the film “Vertigo” in the distant 1958. The effect is that the main objective remains static, while the background either moves away or approaches. Another very important addition was the technology OcuSync 2.0, which transmits Full HD video online at a distance of up to 8 km, preventing interference. Not bypassed and improved the technology ActiveTrack, now the device better monitors the selected objects.
Also, new items can make HDR-photos, taking several pictures with different exposures, then combine them to increase detail. Available HyperLight function, designed for shooting in low light conditions. It also combines several frames to suppress noise. In addition, the Mavic 2 has improved stereo sensors, they help the drone to see obstacles during operation and automatically fly around them.
Both devices are equipped with 8 GB of internal memory, there is the possibility of expansion with the help of MicroSD. One charge is enough for 31 minutes of flight, the maximum speed is 72 km / h. The price for Mavic 2 Pro will be 1449 dollars, Zoom-version will be 200 dollars cheaper.
