China's DJI releases Mavic 2 Pro drone in New York - Xinhua | English.news.cn

Both the drones are up for sale in the US. The picture is brighter on the DJI Mavic 2 Pro vs the DJI Mavic Pro 1 without being blown out.

Both models can hit speeds of up to 45 miles per hour and stay in the air for a whopping 31 minutes. The Mavic 2 Pro is the world's first drone with an integrated Hasselblad camera, and the Mavic 2 Zoom is the first foldable drone that features an optical zoom.

Besides the improved cameras, the drones are also improved across the board, says DJI's product communication lead Michael Oldenburg. The two drones from the company, namely the Mavic 2 Pro and the Mavic 2 Zoom.

DJI's new drones are identical apart from their cameras, so let's start with what they have in common.

The lens mounted to the drone is a variable f2.8-f11 paired with a 1-inch 20 megapixel CMOS sensor. These functions allow the drone to create moving time-lapse images when the drone covers a large distance. What's improved however is the flight time which is now 31 minutes on a single charge and can reach maximum speeds of up to 44mph or 70.8kmph. Both include a more aerodynamic fuselage for less noise, faster speeds, and longer, more energy-efficient flight. With this mode, the foreground subject remains still while the background is free to zoom in and out, creating a bewitching feeling of unreality for viewers.

The Mavic 2 Zoom uses a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor paired with a 24-48mm optical (that also offers digital zoom up to 96mm) telephoto lensed can capture losses video in full HD resolution.

Internal storage of 8GB is available and a maximum microSD storage of up to 128GB. Meanwhile, OcySync 2.0 uses the 2.4GHz and 5.8Ghz bands to reduce interference, and separated uplink and downlink channels means the best live view yet - 1080p at up to 8km. It's that zoom lens that enables the new Dolly Zoom Quickshot mode that zooms on the subject to keep it the same size in the frame while the drone flies backwards.
