Moment has been known for making smartphone lenses, and they turned out to be pretty neat. Now the company has launched Moment Air, which includes a whole bunch of accessories for Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom drones. They include a set of filters, a carrying case, and more. But the most interesting piece is probably the world’s first anamorphic lens for consumer drones.
While his wife and kids were playing in the shallow water at New Smyrna Beach in Florida, Dan Watson decided to take their photo from air. And boy they were lucky that he did! As he got his Mavic 2 Pro into the air, he spotted a shark moving towards his family. He rushed them out of the water and took incredible photos as they were running to safety.

There have been a few reports across Facebook groups, YouTube videos, and various forums across the web on sharpness issues with DJI’s new Mavic 2 Pro. Despite housing a camera branding the Hasselblad name, people aren’t happy. But are things really as bad as they might appear?
Tom David from Tom’s Tech Time puts the new Mavic 2 Pro head to head against the Phantom 4 Pro to see how the two compare. Surely the new Mavic 2 Pro with a Hasselblad camera should beat the pants off the two-and-a-half-year-old Phantom 4 Pro, right? You’d think so.
When it comes to filters for drones, the first name that usually springs to mind is PolarPro. But just as PolarPro break out into the world of “real cameras“, the big names in filters seem to be targeting drones. This time, Tiffen is expanding their drone filter range with new filter kits for the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom, DJI Mavic 2 Pro, DJI Mavic Air and DJI Inspire 2.
Announced only a few days ago, the Mavic 2 drones already have their first reviews appearing. This one’s from the folks at We Talk UAV. They take out the Mavic 2 Pro and put that 1″ 10Bit Hasselblad camera to the test. DJI gave themselves a tough act to follow with the original DJI Mavic Pro or even the Mavic Pro Platinum, but it looks like they’ve actually outdone themselves.
DJI has announced two new drones, both successors to its popular Mavic Pro. First, there’s the Mavic 2 Pro, featuring Hasselblad camera with a 1″ CMOS sensor.
