If you’re in a market for a drone, there are many options to choose from. DJI launched Phantom 4 back in May this year, and two versions of Mavic 2 were launched a few weeks ago. In this video, Parker Walbeck gives you an in-depth comparison of the DJI Mavic Pro 2 and the Phantom 4 Pro. So in case you’re wondering which one to buy, or if you should upgrade from a drone you already own: this video is for you.
A previously leaked image of the upcoming DJI Mavic 2 drone suggested a removable gimbal. However, the latest Argo catalog has published two images of the upcoming drone, showing that there will be two versions after all. DJI will launch a Zoom model and a Pro model, each designed to cover specific shooting needs. And other than revealing this, the catalog also shows some other features we can expect from the upcoming DJI drone.
It looks like the Mavic 2 won’t be the only new version of the DJI Mavic being announced by DJI. Droning On reports that a new “Mavic Enterprise” model may be on the way, too, after posting some leaked photos. This drone seems to have various attachments that can be added to add various functionality to the drone.
DJI Mavic II has been rumored for a while, and DJI recently announced an event in New York where they would present the drone to the public. However, a photo of the new DJI Mavic Pro II has leaked online, and it suggests that the drone will have 360-degree obstacle avoidance and a removable gimbal.
Demands on technology companies these days are pretty intense. It used to be that a company released a product, customers either loved it or hated it, and then a new model came out in 5 or so years to replace it. Today, it’s very different. No sooner had the Sony A7III been announced, for example, than wishlists appeared for a theoretical Sony A7IV. People want to see new camera kit far more often than they used to.
When it comes to drones, the “upgrade cycle” is even shorter, with people expecting new and upgraded models on an annual basis. Lately, there’ve been a number of rumours surrounding several new possible models from drone leaders DJI. The Mavic Pro 2, the Phantom 5, the Inspire 3 and a new fixed-wing drone, the DJI VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing). The “leaks” on specs so far look quite exciting, but can they really be believed?
Hot on the heels of the new DJI Mavic Air, we’re already starting to hear rumours about the Mavic Pro’s real replacement. A new Mavic Pro II. And the big news is that the sensor gets an upgrade from 2/3″ to a whole 1″ like the Phantom 4 Pro. Not only that, but there’s also a big increase in battery capacity for 35 minutes of flight time. And there’s said to be a pair of rear sensors. And according to DRN, it’s already in production.
