Insanely good image quality on the Pro. Omnidirectional obstacle avoidance and improved tracking. Better battery life, more reliable remote control connection.

Hyperlapse video is shaky & limited to 1080p. Occasional weird colors with tự động hóa Trắng balance. The Zoom can only vày 2x Zoom at 4K. Expensive, especially the Pro.
Drone season is raging so hard right now. I am positively itchy with drones. The Mavic 2 Pro, however, is the first one whose footage has made my tongue fall out of my mouth & unroll like a Loony Toon. Not only is the Clip chất lượng incredible, but it’s gotten way better at tracking subjects. There’s also the Mavic 2 Zoom khổng lồ consider, the Pro’s plucky sibling. Let’s break this thing down.

DJIThere’s really just one Mavic 2 drone with two camera options. Apart from the camera, the Pro and the Zoom are identical. Both retain the same foldable thiết kế as the original Mavic Pro, but they're slightly bigger and heavier now. That’s not what you generally hope for, but what you get in return is considerable: a larger battery with up lớn 31 minutes of flight time (in my testing, 25 minutes was about the average) & the ability khổng lồ travel và traông chồng objects up to lớn 45 miles per hour.

Arguably the most-important addition, though, are the new sensors giving the Mavic omnidirectional obstacle avoidance. Not only that, its revamped version of ActiveTrack—now ActiveTrachồng 2.0—can predict where you’re going to lớn go. The previous incarnation would stop and hover in place if it encountered an obstacle while tracking you; you had lớn grab the remote & navigate it to safety yourself. With the new version it will encounter, say, a tree branch, then go around it và continue tracking you. It works remarkably well.

The drone maxes out at 12 miles per hour with obstacle avoidance switched on, so you aren’t going khổng lồ be able to go full-tilt on a mountain bike through a densely-wooded area. Still, I ran in & around some fairly dense trees & bushes và it did a commendable job of staying with me. I was certainly able to lead it inkhổng lồ situations it couldn’t get out of, and it would thua kém me here & there, but it never once crashed. That’s really the key thing here: This is the most crash-proof drone I’ve ever flown, by a long shot. For amateurs, that’s a major selling-point.


In general, the Mavic 2 just feels more polished than the first generation. There’s less wobble in the joints. The lens cover is easier to lớn use và really locks the gimbal in place. Significantly, the remote control seems khổng lồ have far greater range và throughput. At one point the drone was more than three miles away from me (deep in the wilderness, I promise!) and I still had solid, real-time đoạn phim coming through with nary a glitch.

One of the new features in the drones is Hyperlapse, which I was very excited about, but which left me underwhelmed. The đoạn phim is not stabilized, so there’s a fair amount of shake, and it’s limited to lớn 1080p. This feels lượt thích a big misstep. It has some cool features, lượt thích the ability lớn control the length you want the finished video clip lớn be, and some clever ways of controlling the drone while shooting the hyperlapse, but it's let down by the kết thúc result. I'd love sầu lớn see them fix this with a software update. If a GoPro Hero7 can make a stabilized 4K hyperlapse, then the Mavic 2 really should be able lớn as well. It's worth noting that you can save the full resolution photos from a timelapse và put them together later on your own, but that takes some doing.

There real differences between these two drones is in the cameras. The Zoom has a very decent camera with 2x optical zoom capabilities—24milimet to lớn 48mm equivalent—& you can push that all the way khổng lồ 96mm if you’re shooting at 1080p và don’t mind some digital zoom. It's a cool feature that would be useful for, say, filming animals you don’t want lớn get too cthua kém to.

It also allows you lớn vì chưng a pre-programmed dolly-zoom shot (a.k.a. the Vertigo shot that Hitchcochồng made famous), like the Parrot Anafi. It does produce a really cool effect, but only if you have the background lined up just right. The dolly-zoom pulls the drone back while the camera zooms in, keeping the subject the same kích thước in the frame while the background appears to lớn grow và come closer. The Zoom also a “Super Resolution” mode for photos, which zooms in & automatically stitches together nine photos into lớn one 48-megapixel with truly impressive detail. Pretty neat, but only for still subjects or far-off scenes.


For the Mavic 2 Pro, DJI partnered with high-end camera-maker Hasselblad khổng lồ build a camera with a one-inch sensor. That’s four times larger than the image sensor on the Zoom, and the difference is striking. It’s much better in low-light, & its max ISO (that’s the sensor’s sensitivity) jumps from 3200 to 12,800. The Pro can also shoot 10-bit 4K Dlog-M at 100Mbps. That’s basically like shooting RAW đoạn phim. When you first look at the footage it’s kind of flat and gray, but it’s retaining a huge amount of information. All you have to lớn bởi vì a slap a LUT (a package of color-grading presets, basically) on it in Premiere or Final Cut & it looks incredibly professional.

Even if you leave everything on auto, you still get killer results. The vast majority of the Clip I shot was with the standard, out-of-the-box settings, because I think that’s how most consumers will use it, at least for starters. Detail is still terrific, colors pop, and everything has a very cinematic sheen khổng lồ it. It certainly does better with well-lit subjects than backlit ones, like any camera. The one weird thing with the Pro was that if I mix it lớn Aulớn White Balance (AWB) sometimes it shifted in the middle of a shot, seemingly for no reason. Something lượt thích that makes it really difficult khổng lồ color correct your footage in post. Obviously, you can just turn off AWB and it’s not an issue, but it’s still something that should be fixed.

So what’s the verdict? As a platsize, the Mavic 2 is fantastic. Personally, I’m not as drawn lớn the Zoom. It’s just not a feature I see myself using that often, và frankly I’d rather stiông xã with the DJI Mavic Air because it’s just so much lighter and more compact. The Pro, however, has me thinking twice. The image chất lượng is just so dang good that, when combined with the improved tracking và omnidirectional obstacle avoidance, it’s hands-down my new top recommendation for drones.

It is, however, $1,500 (the Zoom is a bit more reasonable at $1,250). First-time drone buyers should probably buy the cheaper Air. For those who want the prettiest footage possible from a compact drone, well, the Mavic 2 Pro is the first consumer-oriented drone that actually earns the Pro name. The footage really does look that good.
