DJI has unveiled their highly anticipated new drone range, the Mavic 2 Pro and the Mavic 2 Zoom.

The Mavic 2 Pro will cost AUD$2,299 and the Mavic 2 Zoom will cost AUD$1,999. Both drones are available for purchase now over the DJI website.

This new generation of drones is divided in two, with the Mavic 2 Pro improving on the core product from the previous generation and the Mavic 2 Zoom adding a whole new set of innovative film making features.

One of those new features is a zoom lens, allowing shooters to do practical in-camera effects which were previously only achievable in post production.

The Mavic 2 Pro on the other hand isn’t a development on how drone videos are made. The 2 Pro is a more traditional second generation device – it contains everything everyone loved about the previous model but better.

Both drones share a lot of great specs in common, despite their different intended usage. The Mavic 2 series can shoot 4K footage at 100 megabits per second to 8GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via microSD.

Boosts to speed and flight time allow the Mavic 2 drones to reach roughly 70km/h with up to 31 minutes of flight time. They will be quieter and safer too, coming equipped with 10 sensors for obstacle avoidance.

Controlling the drone just got eaier too, thanks to DJI’s OcuSync 2.0 which beams a live 1080p view to the remote via a users phone up to 8 kilometres away.

Focusing in on just the Mavic 2 Pro, Hasselblad has partnered with DJI to create an advanced lens for the device. That partnership is based on DJI purchasing a majority stake in the company in 2017, demonstrating their commitment to making high quality gear.

The lens mounted to the drone is a variable f2.8-f11 paired with a 1-inch 20 megapixel CMOS sensor. The 2 Pro supports 10-bit Dlog-M for the most grading versatility in post production as well as 4K 10-bit HDR.

When looking at the Zoom its clear that there’s a big trade off between image quality verses multi-purpose usage. The sensor on the Zoom is significantly smaller at 1/2.3-inches, however in exchange you can zoom from a 24mm view to a 48mm one.

The Zoom can perform a lot of intelligent shooting and editing by itself. The drone will come with a dolly zoom mode and a “Super Resolution” mode, which can stitch 9 images together to make a 48 megapixel image.

There are shooting modes that are shared between the two models. The 2 Pro and the Zoom can both capture hyper lapse video and be programmed to follow predetermined paths.
