Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom

The Chinese drone manufacturing company DJI lately tied up Hasselblad and released 2 new drones in its Mavic lineup. DJI has built up its own legacy in the market of drones. On 23rd August 2018, the company released its new drones called Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom.

Both of these drones are packed with tons of cool new features which so many videographers wanted to be on their drones. Many professional drone pilots consider these drones (especially Mavic 2 Zoom) as a perfect upgrade from their previous drones. Take a look at what they have.

Mavic 2 Pro:

Mavic 2 Pro is probably going to be the best low light video capturing drone ever. The Mavic 2 Pro is packed up with the gorgeous 20 megapixels Hasselblad L1D-20C with Hasselblad Natural Color Solution (HNCS) technology which helps the drone to capture stunning aerial shots

Improved CMOS sensor:

The previous Mavic Pro had a ½.3 inch image quality sensing sensor but the new Mavic 2 Pro comes with a solid 1-inch CMOS sensor which allows it to capture 4K videos at a better dynamic range with sharp details on the video even on the low-light situation.

Adjustable aperture:

Mavic 2 Pro has a variable aperture at f2.8 to f11 which automatically adjusts itself according to the lighting condition. The lowest aperture range f2.8 allows the drone to capture a high-quality image with depth-of-field enabled photos which kinda looks like portraits captured on DSLR.

10-bit Dlog-M Color profile and 10 HDR video capturing:

The main and coolest feature which makes this drone unique is the 10-bit Dlog-M color profile technology. It makes the video look brighter and sharper with a vivid touch by yielding higher dynamic range. It also has 10-bit HDR video capturing feature which increases the contrast and makes the video or a picture more clear.

Mavic 2 Zoom:

Mavic 2 Zoom is my favorite one. It has a 24-48 mm Optical Zoom lens, Dolly Zoom feature, patching up the image and so on. Let’s take a look about them briefly.

24mm-48mm Zoom camera:

The Mavic 2 Zoom has an Optical Zoom lens which Zooms out from 24mm to 48mm. The lowest 24mm gives a perfect wide-angle picture perfect shots and 48mm which makes it a telephoto lens which adds a cinematic look by giving a bit of depth-of-field (blurry background).

Effortless video capturing:

This drone will not let you get close to your subject. It cruises through the air at 72 kph and get close to whatever you name as subject or stays at safe distance uses it 4x lossless zoom and 2x optical zoom feature to capture the video effortlessly.

The Dolly Zoom:

This is what makes the drone more special. The Dolly Zoom is an inbuilt option which lets you zoom at the object while the drone is moving backward or forward. That’s pretty cool, right?. It gives a cinematic transition touch to your videos.

12 megapixel to 48 megapixel:

The 24mm lens captures nine 12 megapixel photos and patches them all into a single picture and increases its color gradient to make it look more vibrant and clear.

What do these both have in common?

Hyperlapse & Hyperlight:

Hyperlapse is an improved version of the time-lapse video. For capturing Hyperlapse the drones get to the tripod mode and stands stable in the air for recording high-quality time-lapse videos.

Hyperlight is a different feature which improves the video or image quality and reduces the noise at a low light situation.

Active track 2.0:

This is the interesting part. Active track 2.0 is a software embedded into the drones which lock the focus on a particular object in the frame and constantly auto-focus it to render better videos on that particular object.

Obstacle Avoidance:

The previous Mavic Pro drone had Obstacle identifying sensors only on the front side of the drone where the camera faces. But both Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom has omnidirectional obstacle sensing sensor which lets you capture videos without any interruption.

So both these drones are obviously amazing with their unique features. But both these drones are not available at the same price. The Mavic 2 pro is a bit expensive than the Mavic 2 Zoom costing $1499 (approx. Rs.105000 ) where Mavic 2 Zoom is priced at $1249 (approx. Rs.88000)
