DJI today announce the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, with a price tag of €1,449 / £1,299.
The new Mavic 2 Pro is one of two new DJI drones announced today. The other is the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom which you can read more about here.
The Mavic 2 Pro aims to break new ground when it comes to aerial image quality. It does this by featuring a camera co-engineered by premium camera manufacturer Hasselblad.
This partnership comes as no surprise as the popularity of aerial film and photography increases.
The compact size and weight enable the Mavic to be taken anywhere. This makes it the perfect choice for any jobbing photographer.
The original sparked a need for high-quality compact imaging drones and the Mavic 2 Pro builds on that foundation.
A new camera is just part of the story and the Mavic 2 Pro. As the two new Mavic 2 models both feature the same drone foundation and features you can read more about that here in the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom announced news story.
Roger Luo, President at DJI says about the new drone “When the Mavic Pro has launched two years ago, it redefined the way people looked at a drone and expanded possibilities for creators around the world,”
Hasselblad brings outstanding image quality to the Mavic 2 Pro
We’ve known about the connection between DJI and Hasselblad for a while and here with the Mavic 2 Pro, we see the first affordable solution from the partnership.
Co-engineered between the DJI and Hasselblad the new camera features a 1-inch CMOS sensor with 10-bit Dlog colour profile. Dlog is designed for shooting video and enables you to capture a wide dynamic range, ideal for grading back in post-production.
Compared with the original Mavic Pro that enables the new sensor to capture four times as many levels of colour per channel giving you maximum quality and plenty of flexibility over the look and style of the footage and still you shoot.
Designed by Hasselblad the camera will capture high-resolution images at an outstanding 20-million pixels and utilises Hasselblads Natural Colour Solution (HNCS) Technology.
Aperture control in a drone of this size is unusual but again will enable maximum control over the imagery you capture. The DJI Mavic Pro 2 will feature an adjustable aperture of between f/2.8-f/11.
High detail 4K video capture
A variety of resolutions and framerates are available, we’ll bring you more on those as we hear. The maximum resolution will be 4K with a maximum recording bitrate of 100mb/s using the H.265 compression codec.
If you’re looking at the Mavic 2 Pro for photography then you’ll be pleased to know that a new Enhanced High Dynamic Range feature has the ability to blend a sequence of photos in camera for fast ghost-free shots that give a dynamic range of 14-stops.
The Mavic 2 Pro is one of two models announced today. The DJI Mavic 2 Zoom is essentially the same as the Mavic 2 Pro with a different lens, you can read more about the Mavic 2 Pro here.
