We have been hearing rumors that DJI is working on a new drone in the form of the Mavic 2. Now thanks to a render obtained by the folks at Photo Rumors, we have a better idea of what the upcoming drone could look like. The render also also seems to corroborate a leaked image from earlier this month in terms of its design.
However it seems that’s not all. In a report from Drone DJ, what looks like a newspaper advertisement has also revealed some specs of the upcoming Mavic 2, namely how it will be offered in two variants: the Mavic 2 Zoom and the Mavic 2 Pro. The differences would be in the camera systems that are offered.
With the Mavic 2 Zoom, as the name implies this will feature a camera with 2x optical zoom from 24mm to 48mm. As for the Mavic 2 Pro, it seems that this will feature a 1-inch CMOS sensor and a camera with Hasselblad’s branding. We’re not sure to what extent DJI’s partnership with Hasselblad is that resulted in this camera, so this is something we’ll just have to wait and see. There is even an accompanying description of the drones which reads:
“The Mavic 2 is a small yet powerful drone with 1080p video transmission and up to 8km (5 miles) transmission distance and a max speed of 20m/s (45mph). It will turn the sky into your creative canvas. Its compact size and 31-minute max flight time makes this one of DJI’s most sophisticated flying cameras ever. Omnidirectional obstacle sensing with APAS and Active Track 2.0 give you the confidence to take to the sky and capture your moment. Dolly Zoom (zoom version only). DJI Mavic 2 Pro & DJI Mavic 2 Zoom.”
No word on pricing or availability we imagine that based on these leaks the official announcement shouldn’t be too far behind.
