The Mavic 2 Zoom is the primary consumer-oriented drone with zooming capabilities. It presents customers a 2x optical zoom (24mm-48mm) and a 2x digital zoom (49mm-96mm) and might seize lossless video in full HD decision. It’s constructed round a redesigned 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor, can shoot 12-megapixel photos, has an ISO vary of 100-3200 and improved focusing velocity due to its upgraded part and distinction detection.

A brand new auto mode on the Mavic 2 Zoom, known as Tremendous Decision, makes use of the drone’s optical zoom to shoot 9 particular person photos of a scene after which routinely sew them collectively right into a 48-megapixel picture. The drone’s zooming capabilities have led to new video modes too. Dolly Zoom QuickShot permits videographers to rapidly replicate cinematic methods popularized by of us like Hitchcock, the place the digicam zooms in on a topic whereas shifting backwards.

The our bodies of the 2 new fashions are equivalent, and are barely bigger than the unique Mavic Professional; just like the orginal, in addition they fold down for straightforward transport. Each are geared up with omnidirectional sensors that may observe the drone’s actions left, proper, up, down, ahead and backward, make the most of a 3-axis mechanical stabilization and have new auxiliary lights on the underside to assist with touchdown and flying in low-light conditions (like nightfall and daybreak). A redesigned winglet and new motors make the 2 drones quieter than earlier fashions.

Each fashions can file at a most bitrate of 100 Mbps utilizing H.265 compression, embrace 8GB of inner storage, and might seize 4K video at as much as 30fps in addition to HD video as much as 120fps. Every has a good flight time of 31 minutes.

The brand new drones additionally function up to date clever flight modes like Hyperlapse and ActiveTrack 2.0, which might now keep away from obstacles and repeatedly observe topics due to the 10 sensors discovered on every drone. OcuSync additionally will get an replace and assist retains the controller and the drone in communication—the Mavic 2 drones can transmit 1080p video as much as 5 miles away from the controller.

The Mavic 2 Professional will retail for $1449, whereas the Mavic 2 Zoom will retail for $1249. Each fashions can be found right now from DJI.

DJI Introduces Mavic 2 Professional And Mavic 2 Zoom: A New Period For Digicam Drones

Mavic 2 Collection Options Two Trade First Digicam Choices With New Clever Options And Optimized Flight Efficiency

August 23, 2018 – DJI, the world’s chief in civilian drones and aerial imaging know-how, right now launched a brand new period for digicam drones with two additions to its iconic Mavic sequence: Mavic 2 Professional, the world’s first drone with an built-in Hasselblad digicam, and Mavic 2 Zoom, the world’s first foldable client drone with optical zoom functionality.

The Mavic 2 is essentially the most superior DJI digicam drone ever constructed, designed for professionals, aerial photographers and content material creators. Incorporating the long-lasting folding design of the world’s hottest Mavic Professional, the Mavic 2 is a strong platform with new gimbal-stabilized cameras and superior clever options like Hyperlapse and ActiveTrack for simpler and extra dynamic storytelling. With a formidable flight time of as much as 31 minutes and a extra secure video transmission system, Mavic 2 delivers the optimum flight expertise for capturing epic pictures.

“When the Mavic Professional was launched two years in the past, it redefined the best way individuals checked out a drone and expanded prospects for creators all over the world,” stated Roger Luo, President at DJI. “At present, we enter a brand new period of aerial images with the introduction of DJI’s new flagship product, the Mavic 2 sequence. The Mavic 2 Professional and Mavic 2 Zoom will allow photographers and videographers to take their inspirations to the air rapidly and elevate their inventive concepts to new heights.”

Mavic 2 Professional: Superior Picture High quality with Hasselblad

Co-engineered in partnership with Hasselblad, the world’s chief in medium format images, the Mavic 2 Professional is the world’s first drone with an built-in Hasselblad digicam for excellent picture high quality with superior mild and coloration efficiency. Housing a 1-inch CMOS sensor with a 10-bit Dlog-M coloration profile, the digicam captures 4 occasions as many ranges of coloration per channel in comparison with Mavic Professional to offer most flexibility for picture and video enhancing. The Mavic 2 Professional can seize 20-megapixel aerial pictures with utmost coloration accuracy utilizing Hasselblad’s distinctive Hasselblad Pure Coloration Answer (HNCS) know-how, whereas an adjustable aperture from f/2.8-f/11 supplies extra management throughout all kinds of lighting circumstances. With 4K 10-bit HDR assist, the Mavic 2 Professional could be plugged right into a 4K TV with HLG and can play again footage with the suitable coloration tones.

Mavic 2 Zoom: A Dynamic Perspective with Optical and Digital Zoom

Powered by a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor, the Mavic 2 Zoom is DJI’s first foldable client drone with zoom, offering a dynamic perspective that ushers in a brand new period of inventive storytelling. With the Mavic 2 Zoom, you may get nearer to your topic at a second’s discover by combining two-times optical zoom (24-48mm) with two-times digital zoom to simulate a 96mm telephoto lens that captures lossless video in full HD decision. Hybrid auto-focus on the Mavic 2 Zoom combines part and distinction detection for increased focus accuracy with an elevated focus velocity of as much as 40% quicker than earlier than. Shoot vivid 12-megapixel pictures or benefit from the brand new Tremendous Decision function that makes use of optical zoom to routinely seize and sew 9 pictures collectively for a extremely detailed 48-megapixel picture, making it a really perfect possibility for panorama images.

Unique to the Mavic 2 Zoom, the brand new Dolly Zoom QuickShot mode opens a brand new visible language for storytelling that was beforehand reserved for skilled cinematographers. It creates an otherworldly warped perspective by routinely zooming in because it flies away from its topic, holding the topic the identical measurement whereas the complete background of the scene is revealed.

Mavic 2 Collection: DJI’s New Flagship Shopper Drone with Highly effective Digicam Choices

Each cameras seize vivid 4K ultra-high definition video with excessive element, recording at a most bitrate of 100 megabits per second utilizing the H.265 compression codec to present you an distinctive diploma of latitude in post-production workflows. For photographers, new Enhanced Excessive Dynamic Vary capabilities mix a sequence of pictures for ghost-free excessive dynamic vary, giving the Mavic 2 Professional a formidable 14 stops of dynamic vary and Mavic 2 Zoom as much as 13 stops.

New Clever Instruments For Epic, Cinematic Photographs

The Mavic 2 is the final word instrument for aerial content material creation with new clever flight modes that make capturing professional-quality outcomes nearly easy. A brand new Hyperlapse function produces establishing pictures that present the passing of time, which you’ll be able to share to social media instantly. JPEG and RAW pictures could be concurrently saved on a Micro SD card or the interior storage, leaving extra room for publish enhancing. Select between Circle, Course Lock, Waypoint or Free mode to create timelapses with a easy faucet of a button within the DJI GO four Cellular App:

  • Free – pilots the drone manually whereas capturing a Hyperlapse video.
  • Circle – routinely flies the drone in a round sample round a topic you choose to create a timelapse video that captures the motion.
  • Course Lock – retains the digicam fastened on capturing topic whereas the drone flies in a straight course to create a singular perspective.
  • Waypoint – plans a posh flight path primarily based on each altitude and GPS coordinates to seize advanced pictures.

Preserving a shifting topic within the body is now simpler than ever with ActiveTrack 2.0. This enhanced auto-track function delivers a strong mixture of autonomous monitoring and impediment sensing capabilities by no means earlier than seen in a DJI drone. Utilizing the principle digicam and the entrance twin imaginative and prescient cameras, the Mavic 2 creates a three-dimensional map of the world in entrance of it, and makes use of new trajectory algorithms to investigate movement and predict the topic’s path as much as three seconds sooner or later. When monitoring a goal, the Mavic 2 can acknowledge and keep away from obstacles whereas capturing your goal with out interruption.
