Back in the beginning of July, one leaked the rounds claiming to show the upcoming DJI Mavic 2. Word was with that leak that drone could detect obstacles with a 360 degree field of view. Mavic 2 drone has now come up with the latest Argos catalog despite not being officially announced by DJI. The catalog calls out two versions of the drones, with one of them that DJI Mavic 2 Pro packs a 1-inch sensor and DJI Mavic 2 Zoom with an integrated 24-48mm zoom lens and a Dolly Zoom effect.
The description from the Argos catalog lists some very nice specifications, including 1
080p video transmission with a transmission distance of up to five miles. Drone can fly up to 45mph and is compact with a maximum flight time of 31 minutes, about four minutes more flight time than the previous version. The catalog confirms that drone has an omnidirectional sense of urgency, which would be a big deal for people who use drone in an area with many trees or other obstacles. The omnidirectional obsession also has APAS and Active Track 2.0 integrated without description of exactly what these features bring to the party.
Mavic 2 Pro has a camera with a 1-inch sensor manufactured by Hasselblad, which means you should expect good image quality. Speculation with the earlier rumors was that Mavic 2 would have a removable gimbal to allow customization, but the directory does not call that feature.
Many looking for a cameratron will not care about how the gimbal puts the camera out unprotected in the event of a crash. If the omnidirectional sensing function works well enough that may not be a problem at all. The great mysteries left right now at Mavic 2 drones are prices and a fixed start date.
