The company has priced the Mavic 2 Pro for $1,449 with the drone, battery, remote controller, charger, and four pairs of propellers while the Mavic 2 Zoom will come for $1,249. The Fly More Kit is priced at $319 and it will come with two additional batteries, a multi-battery charging hub, car charger, a battery to portable power bank adapter, two pairs of propellers, and a carrying bag.

DJI Mavic 2 Pro

The Mavic 2 Pro will be the first camera that will come with an integrated Hasselblad camera for improved color reproduction and exposure. To make this new camera, DJI teamed up with Hasselblad to maintain the high standards that photographers and video makers have come to expect with both the brands.

The announcement mentioned that both the drones will sport a 1-inch CMOS sensor. The company mentioned that the Mavic 2 Pro can shoot 4K HDR video in 10-bit Dlog-M color profile to capture four times as many levels of color per channel when compared to the original Mavic Pro along.

With the help of the 1-inch sensor and the new Hasselblad camera, users can shoot 20-megapixel photos with accurate colors with the help of Hasselblad Natural Color Solution technology. The camera on the Mavic 2 Pro also comes with adjustable aperture from f/2.8 to f/11 for better control on the images in varying lighting conditions.

DJI Mavic 2 Zoom

Mavic 2 Zoom is the second drone that the company launched and it is the first foldable consumer drone with the ability to zoom. The camera lens on the drone comes with 24-48mm focal length allowing users to get close to their subjects while maintaining their distance and without losing image quality. The announcement pointed out that users can also simulate the 96mm telephoto lens to shoot 1080p video. The drone uses phase and contrast detection auto-focusing systems to ensure that the drone can manage high accuracy of focusing at a faster speed. Unlike Mavic 2 Pro, the Mavic 2 Zoom lets users take images in 12-megapixel.

DJI has also added a new Super Resolution feature in the drone where it uses the optical zoom of the camera to shoot and capture 9 images and then stitch them together. Another interesting addition to the drone is Dolly Zoom that helps users quickly create otherworldly warped perspective . Talking about the video on both the drones, DJI clarified that they can both record 4K video with extreme detail at a maximum of 100megabits per second using the H.265 compression to give users the room to play around in post-processing.

Additional features

The Mavic 2 Pro comes with 14 shots of dynamic range while the Mavic 2 Zoom offers 13 stops. Talking about the Hyperlapse feature that was mentioned earlier, it is much easier to create professional quality hyper-lapse videos with the help of Free, Circle, Course Lock, and Waypoint. The ActiveTrack 2.0 will help the Mavic 2 Zoom ensure that the sensor can detect and then track subjects. The Mavic 2 series can go up to 72km/h in sports mode.

The company has also improved its Advanced Pilot Assistance System (APAS) by adding a total of 10 sensors on all sides of the drones for more accurate obstacle sensing, and safer flight. Mavic 2 lineup also comes with OcuSync 2.0 video transmission to a more stable connection between the drone and the remote controller with the help of auto-switching between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz frequency. Users can download 1080p video feed and original JPEG images from a distance of up to 8km and instantly upload them to social media.
