The DJI Mavic 2 Pro retains its status as the best high-end drone for several reasons: it has a large sensor, it is very pleasant to fly and its foldable design makes it very convenient to carry. If you’re primarily looking for a travel drone, the Mavic Mini DJI is also worth a look. Otherwise, this drone is extremely versatile if you need a quality a little higher than that of the DJI Mavic Air 2.
The Mavic 2 Pro is equipped with a three-axis Hasselblad cardan camera, which is equipped with a one-inch CMOS sensor – like Sony’s RX100 and RX10 series – and an adjustable aperture that ranges from f/2.8 to f/11. It is a remarkable equipment capable of filming in several video resolutions, including 4K up to 30 frames per second, 2.7K up to 60 frames per second and 1080p up to 120 frames per second.
The drone also allows you to take 20-megapixel RAW photos with striking sharpness. The Mavic 2 Pro also supports the 10-bit Dlog-M color profile for post-production color calibration and 10-bit HDR video for striking hyperrealistic images.
Moreover, despite its impressive performance, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro is easy to drive and its control proves intuitive. In flight, the drone is as reliable as we expected and inspires confidence. Thanks to new, more powerful engines mounted on its four arms, the drone is now capable of reaching a speed of 72 km/h in Sport mode and, thanks to a more powerful battery, it can stay in the air for up to 31 minutes in a row. It is also very quiet, so discreet that you can hear it barely 30 meters away.
Its Occusync 2.0 transmission, meanwhile, offers a very accurate 1080p live streaming up to a distance of 8 km. Like the previous Mavic, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro is equipped with an 8GB internal memory and a Micro SD card slot. The controller is virtually the same as the original, but it has a three-way gearbox (normal, sporty or tripod for slow film shooting) for convenience.
For the DJI Go 4 app, the Mavic 2 Pro features a set of smart flight modes, as well as a Hyperlapse feature that captures stop-frame images over a wide area before merging them into the app.
Ultimately, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro benefits from the most advanced flight and camera technologies currently available, allowing it to provide professional-quality images while remaining accessible even to beginners. It is the perfect drone for most amateurs and professionals, if you can afford it of course.
