Afterall, drones aren’t something you can just pick up and use right away, there are all sorts of factors to consider.
Whether you’re a first time flyer, or an experienced pilot looking for professional quality recording, we’ve broken down which drones would be suited to your need.
First Time Flyers
You’re ready to dip your toes into the world of aerial photography for the very first time but you don’t want to be compromising on features or quality just because you’re looking for something easy to fly. That’s where the DJI Mini 2 is the ideal companion for you. The lightweight, ultra-compact drone weighs in at just 249g, making it super portable.
Even though it’s small this drone still manages to pack a punch, with advanced features that include a 12MP camera with a 3-axis motorised gimbal, 4K/30fps video recording and a 4x digital zoom, allowing you to capture your stills and video with stunning image quality and smoothness no matter how adventurous your piloting gets.
That’s not all though, the DJI Mini 2 is also very user friendly with easy-to-use intelligent features to make flying easier and safer than before.
On-the-Go Content Creators
It’s the image quality and features that matter most to you. You want to level up your content and that’s where the DJI Mavic Air 2 comes in. With its large ½-inch CMOS sensor you’re able to capture amazingly detailed 48MP photos as well as 4K/60fps video with the enhanced 3-axis gimbal stabilising every shot for you, even in windy conditions or an unpredictable environment.
If it’s cinematic style footage you’re after then DJI’s FocusTrack makes it effortless for you to capture. Their easy-to-use suite of intelligent tracking modes, including Active Track 3.0, allows you to really unleash your creativity!
You’re an aspiring filmmaker who’s looking for the ultimate aerial photography experience. The ability to record truly cinematic footage and high-quality stills is at the top of your list. This is where either the DJI Mavic 2 Pro or DJI Mavic 2 Zoom would be ideal for you. DJI’s Mavic 2 drones redefined what was considered possible in the world of aerial cinematography with their exceptional low-light performance and a host of powerful features. There are some key differences between the Pro and the Zoom so be sure to choose carefully.
If you’re looking for outstanding colour detail in your photos, then the DJI Mavic 2 Pro’s Hasselblad L1D-20c camera with a 20MP 1-inch CMOS sensor has you covered. You also have the option of 4K/60fps video recording and an adjustable aperture for true control and creativity. The features on the Mavic 2 Pro don’t stop there, you also have the 10-bit Dlog-M color profile which yields a higher dynamic range for jaw-dropping aerial images that allows you to capture subtle colour graduations and more refined details.
While the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom shares a lot of its intelligent features with the Mavic 2 Pro it differs in its camera. If it’s creative perspectives while shooting that you’re looking for, the 12MP sensor with 4x optical zoom will allow you to do just that. You are also able to capture exceptional clarity and detail in your landscape shots using the super resolution photos mode.
Both of these drones were built with the professional in mind and are packed full of advanced features that deliver on their expected results.
