Incorporating the folding design of the Mavic Pro, the Mavic 2 is a platform with new gimbal-stabilised cameras and intelligent features such as Hyperlapse and ActiveTrack for dynamic storytelling.
Civilian drones and aerial imaging technology provider, DJI, has introduced two additions to its Mavic series: Mavic 2 Pro, the drone with an integrated Hasselblad camera, and Mavic 2 Zoom, a foldable consumer drone with optical zoom capability. The Mavic 2 is available for purchase at Dubai’s Advanced Media and will soon be available at all authorised stores across the UAE. Advanced Media Trading LLC is one of the Middle Easts largest suppliers of broadcast, professional video and photography equipment and accessories.
The Mavic 2 is reportedly designed for professionals, aerial photographers and content creators. Incorporating the folding design of the Mavic Pro, the Mavic 2 is a platform with new gimbal-stabilised cameras and intelligent features such as Hyperlapse and ActiveTrack for dynamic storytelling. With a flight time of up to 31 minutes and a stable video transmission system, Mavic 2 delivers the optimal flight experience for capturing epic shots, the release stated.
Commenting on the launch, Roger Luo, President at DJI, said: When the Mavic Pro was launched two years ago, it redefined the way people looked at a drone and expanded possibilities for creators around the world. Today, we enter a new era of aerial photography with the introduction of DJIs new flagship product, the Mavic 2 series. The Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom will enable photographers and videographers to take their inspirations to the air quickly and elevate their creative ideas to new heights.
Co-engineered in partnership with Hasselblad, the Mavic 2 Pro is the worlds first drone with an integrated Hasselblad camera for outstanding image quality with superior light and colour performance, the company claims. Housing a 1-inch CMOS sensor with a 10-bit Dlog-M colour profile, the camera captures four times as many levels of colour per channel compared to Mavic Pro to provide maximum flexibility for photo and video editing.
Powered by a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor, the Mavic 2 Zoom is DJIs first foldable consumer drone with zoom. With the Mavic 2 Zoom, you can get closer to your subject at a moments notice by combining two-times optical zoom (24-48mm) with two-times digital zoom to simulate a 96mm telephoto lens that captures lossless video in full HD resolution, the release stated.
Exclusive to the Mavic 2 Zoom, the new Dolly Zoom QuickShot mode opens a new visual language for storytelling that was previously reserved for professional cinematographers.
Both cameras capture vivid 4K ultra-high definition video with detail, recording at a bitrate of 100 megabits per second using the H.265 compression codec to give you a degree of latitude in post-production workflows.
The Mavic 2 is a tool for aerial content creation with new intelligent flight modes. A new Hyperlapse feature produces establishing shots that show the passing of time, which you can share to social media immediately. JPEG and RAW photos can be simultaneously saved on a Micro SD card or the internal storage, leaving more room for post editing.
For the first time in a DJI drone, the company claims, Mavic 2 has 10 sensors on all sides of the aircraft to automatically detect obstacles in its path and help prevent collisions , allowing you to focus on capturing the perfect shot.
