DJI officially launched a drone yesterday Mavic Air 2. It is about successor of the popular Mavic Air model from 2018 and the improvement is evident here in almost every respect. We can count on better video quality, more comfortable controls or improved security. So what does the drone offer and how much does the company value it for?
DJI Mavic Air 2 officially introduced
Let's start with the main one, which is without a doubt sensor. The second generation Mavic Air uses sensor 1/2 “48MP Sony IMX586which can produce 12 megapixel images using pixel-binnig technology. However, there is also the possibility to take pictures in full 48 megapixel resolution. We will also find a new mode here SmartPhoto, which analyzes the scene in detail and automatically selects whether to use it HDR or Hyperlight.
In HDR mode, the camera produces a total of seven images with different exposures and then combine them into one. HyperLight mode is then night modewhen the sensor takes several pictures again and combines them together to reduce noise. He can then recognize the scene detect many scenarios like sunset, blue sky, grass, snow or trees and automatically selects the best setting. If we talk about video, it is not missing 4K resolution at up to 60 fps and 120 Mbps. In addition, it can be rotated as well 120/240 fps video at Full HD resolution with either 4x or 8x deceleration.
DJI – This Is Mavic Air 2
Another feature that is worth mentioning is FocusTrack. This is a feature that can monitor you in up to three different modes. The new one is ActiveTrack 3.0, which monitors the object through mapping and various algorithms. There is also a new so-called video hyperlapse up to 8K resolution. Another thing where the Mavic Air 2 is better than its predecessor is flying itself. Thanks to the new engine, improved battery and other technologies, the drone can remain in the air up to 34 minutes.
Mavic Air 2 should have as well improved security. The new sensors are located on both the front and back and can warn if they are certain objects too close. If you do not move away, it will stop automatically to avoid a collision. At the bottom we also find a new one lights that help with landing. It will be especially useful in the evening. The drone has been available in China since yesterday.
