An eagle-eyed reader found quite the find: the upcoming DJI Mavic 2 in the latest Argos catalog. It turns out the new drone is coming in two versions, and both represent major upgrades to the popular model.
DroneDJ is reporting that it appears the Mavic 2 will be released in two versions: the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and the Mavic 2 Zoom. The Mavic 2 Pro will come with a one-inch sensor housed in a Hasselblad camera. This should give a noticeable leap in image quality. I know that when I upgraded from the Phantom 4 to the Phantom 4 Pro with its one-inch sensor, the jump in image quality took my drone from fun creative toy to serious photographic tool. The other model, the Mavic 2 Zoom, will come with a 24-48mm equivalent lens. Other upgrades include a faster top speed of 45 m.p.h., increased battery life of 31 minutes, omnidirectional obstacle detection, and a dolly zoom effect in the Zoom model.
While the release date isn’t yet clear, one thing is for sure: both models are going to be a lot of fun when they arrive.
