DJI’s Mavic 2 Drone builds on the technology and success of its previous model, which was adored by professionals and amateurs alike. The Mavic 2 is DJI’s latest flagship drone, and it sets the current consumer record regarding flight time. It comes in at 31 minutes. Mavic 2 also has an impressive top speed of 72km/h when operating in Sports Mode.
Operators who fancy themselves as filmmakers will be pleased to know Mavic 2 is equipped with a 3-axis gimble for providing smooth, stable footage in almost any situation. Mavic 2 can transmit 1080p video up to a distance of 8km.
Mavic 2 is available in two models. The Mavic 2 Pro is equipped with a Hasselblad camera with a 10mp 1-inch CMOS Sensor, an adjustable aperture and 10-bit HDR video. The Mavic 2 Zoom has a 24-48mm optical zoom, 12mp sensor, 48mp super-resolution photo and 4x lossless zoom video. That’s just a sample of the cameras’ features. I’d advice photographers to visit the Mavic 2 website for a full rundown of what these cameras can do.
While airborne, operators can also make use of obstacle sensors which are on all sides of the craft. The Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems allow the drone to actively avoid obstacles in front of and behind it. An additional bottom auxiliary light assists the sensors in low light conditions. When it’s home time, Mavic 2 can be folded for neat storage.
The DJI Mavic 2 drone is available now. Mavic 2 Zoom costs AUD $1,999 while the Mavic 2 Pro goes for $2,299.
