If you are looking to capture stunning aerial photos and footage and willing to spend around Rs. 170,000 then you may be pleased to check out the DJI Mavic Pro 2 and Mavic Pro Zoom.
These two astonishing drones were revealed during live stream event. In this article, I will be summarising essential bits here. The Mavic 2 Pro is world’s first drone with integrated Hasselblad camera and Mavic 2 Zoom is a first foldable drone that features an optical zoom.
Following on from the well-received original Mavic Pro, the second generation was built in partnership with high-end camera maker Hasselblad. A 1-inch CMOS sensor with a 10-bit Dlog-M colour profile is on board the Mavic 2 Pro, and this offers four times as many colour levels per channel than its predecessor. Hasselblad’s proprietary Natural Color Solution (HNCS) technology gives the 20MP camera incredible colour accuracy, and its adjustable aperture (f/2.8-f/11) allows for greater flexibility when shooting in various lighting conditions. On the video side, the Mavic 2 Pro can handle 4K capture with 10-bit HDR support.
