With 34 minutes of flight time along with a bigger image sensor and redesigned controller, the new DJI Mavic Air 2 is a hot ticket for drone pilots. We really like its proprietary OccuSync technology, which should be an improvement over often spotty WiFi signal transmissions.
Available for pre-order now for $799, the Mavic Air 2 will begin shipping May 11th. Get the Fly More bundle, which includes ND filters, a carrying bag, prop guards, charging hub, and three batteries, for $988.
DJI calls the Mavic Air 2 its smartest and safest drone yet and has pre-programmed it with scene detection modes and upgraded autonomous flying modes.
Here’s the scoop from DJI:
Master creative aerial shots thanks to effortlessly smooth 4K/60fps video. The D-Cinelike flat color profile retains more information for post-processing. The HEVC (H.265) video codec records more image information, uses less storage, and preserves the dynamic range and detail of your footage, ensuring next-level content.
The secret to incredible HDR video is a high-performance Quad Bayer image sensor. A single frame separates exposure levels in different areas, accurately capturing light and dark details. The images are layered to create a colorful, balanced, and eye-catching picture with higher dynamic range.
