DJI has just announced the DJI Mini 4 Pro, the latest in its line of ultra-compact drones that promises to enhance the quality of video and imagery that can be captured with this small drone. While the last iteration of this drone saw a huge leap forward in image quality, this new release focuses on some of the more advanced flight features, which include groundbreaking omni-directional obstacle sensing technology and the inclusion of the flagship DJI O4 video transmission system. These new features, coupled with the already excellent video quality, means that the new DJI Mini 4 Pro looks set to become a very interesting proposition for both enthusiasts and Pro
Ferdinand Wolf, Creative Director at DJI, expressed his excitement: “The Mini 4 Pro is a harmonious blend of professional-grade capabilities within a lightweight and highly portable design, offering unparalleled freedom and versatility. This drone emerges as the ultimate all-in-one solution, purpose-built to elevate your creative toolbox.”
Weighing in at less than 249 grams, the Mini 4 Pro is engineered for portability. Its lightweight design not only makes it easy to carry but also ensures compliance with drone regulations in most countries and regions, such as the UK. This grants users the freedom to take flight with minimal restrictions.
Ultra-high quality Imaging
The Mini 4 Pro boasts cutting-edge imaging capabilities with its 1/1.3-inch CMOS sensor, advanced Image-Processing Platform, and dual native ISO fusion—a hallmark of cinema-grade technology. With features like an f/1.7 aperture, 48MP image resolution, 4K/60fps HDR video, and Slo-Mo shooting at 4K/100fps, it captures moments in breathtaking detail. Even in challenging low-light conditions, the 2.4μm pixels and enhanced noise reduction algorithm in Night Shots video mode deliver clear, cleaner footage.
Furthermore, the Mini 4 Pro offers True Vertical Shooting, optimized for social media and smartphone playback. A 60° large-angle tilt for fluid camera motion unlocks cinematic potential. Digital video zoom extends your storytelling abilities, allowing you to magnify photos up to 2x and videos up to 4x.
Despite this being a sub 250g drone, small and compact it still features professional level features such as the 10-bit D-Log M recording, offering access to more than a billion colours. High Dynamic Range (HLG) ensures that natural colours and brightness remain true-to-life without requiring adjustments or format conversions. The Mini 4 Pro feaures 48MP RAW and SmartPhoto technology—a fusion of HDR imaging and scene recognition, resulting in captivating images.
Fly with Confidence
Safety takes centre stage with the Mini 4 Pro’s omni-directional obstacle sensing capabilities. Multiple wide-angle and downward vision sensors detect obstructions from all directions. Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS) with automatic braking and obstacle bypass enhance in-flight security.
The new drone boasts up to 34 minutes of flight time giving you plenty of time for creative freedom. The Intelligent Flight Battery Plus can push this to an impressive 45 minutes. DJI’s flagship O4 video transmission ensures ultra-responsive control and smooth 1080p/60fps FHD video transmission at distances of up to 20 km. Enhance your efficiency with Waypoint Flight’s automatic route function and minimize operation fatigue during long-distance flights with Cruise Control. The Mini 4 Pro’s Advanced Return-to-Home system automatically navigates a safe flight route back, facilitated by the AR RTH feature for added control during return flights.
Elevate Your Creativity
The Mini 4 Pro not only offers intuitive methods for capturing shots, such as Spotlight, Point of Interest, and ActiveTrack 360°, which enables users to bypass obstacles for smoother tracking, thanks to omnidirectional obstacle sensing, but also enhances creative possibilities with innovative features:
MasterShots Delivering dynamic camera movement templates tailored for portrait, close-up, and long-range shots.
QuickShots Providing Dronie, Circle, Helix, Rocket, Boomerang, and Asteroid modes for stylish results.
Hyperlapse Offering Free, Waypoint, Circle, and Course Lock modes with unlimited shooting time, supporting compositing while shooting.
