DJI Mavic 2 Pro review: With 3- Axis Gimble

DJI Mavic Pro

Now the new DJI Mavic 2 Pro is ready to beat its own benchmarks which were previously maiden by its own. The all-new DJI Mavic 2 Pro having a huge no. of features and improvements. Actually, DJI has launched two Drones this time one is Mavic 2 Pro and another is the Mavic 2 Zoom. In this post, we are going to discuss the DJI Mavic 2 Pro only but with a little discussion on Mavic 2 Zoom.

It’s always hard to choose one gadget if there are two options of almost same features & little difference in price are available. But if you are a professional photographer/videographer and you know what you need, then the choice is clear to you.


In terms of its fold-able design, it is Compaq with dimensions of L-91mm, B-214mm, and H-84mm. It is very handy and easy to carry. The camera is in the square shape, might seem large in photos. It squares size easily fit in the small space of DJI Mavic 2 Pro.

The Mavic 2 Pro has around fixed lens with a 28mm equivalent field of view. The Camera isn’t wide as the Mavic 2 Zoom but it’s not too narrow either. But 28mm is the sweet spot for this 20-megapixel sensor.

It can provide 1.4X digital zoom in 4K (more on that later), and if you crop the 4K video in the post and drop it into a 1080p timeline, you can achieve up to 2.4X zoom, but you will definitely see a loss in image quality if you start lowering the resolution by zooming in.

Photo Quality‍


New improvement in Mavic pro is D-HDR. This  D-HDR mode takes a burst of RAW photos and then combines them together to get 13 stops of dynamic range (14 stops on the Mavic 2 Pro) while also reducing motion blur and other artifacts that would typically show up when shooting traditional exposure bracketed shots.


One more feature present which is similar to HDR called HyperLight. This feature takes a series of photos and puts them together to get the best results at night. It is especially good for reducing image noise (the grainy artifacts that you see when shooting at night).

Photo Features Of The Mavic 2 Pro


Before getting into the picture nature of the Mavic 2 Pro, there are a few things you should think about the camera and how it identifies with Hasselblad. In 2015, DJI procured a larger part stake in the Swedish camera organization Hasselblad.

This is an organization known for its super costly medium configuration cameras utilized by well-known picture takers and even NASA. Previously, DJI did some cross-marking with Hasselblad on their bigger film ramble rigs, yet the Mavic 2 Pro is the primary completely coordinated item created by DJI with Hasselblad innovation.

So what is Hasselblad about? Huge sensors, higher goals, and unrivaled shading science. On the Mavic 2 Pro, that is precisely what you get.

20 Megapixel Sensor

On the off chance that you need is an awesome camera particularly with regards to video, at that point the 20-megapixel sensor makes super sharp pictures. Despite the fact that you don’t get the Super-Res include, 20 megapixels is adequate for most circumstances and since the pixels are genuine, you can catch shots with development in them (something you can’t do with Super Res on the Mavic 2 Zoom).

Better Colors

What’s stunningly better than goals is the Hasselblad HNCS shading science that is manufactured right in. What is HNCS you inquire? Indeed, it’s just Hasselblad’s method for rendering exact hues in any circumstance.

With the Mavic 2 Pro, you get astounding hues ideal out of the crate, yet in the event that you shoot in RAW, you can process those RAW documents with the Hasselblad Phocus programming which will give you the best shading outcomes.

Low Light Shooting

In the event that you are having a little learning about cameras, you’ll realize that expanding the goals will more often than not diminish the measure of every individual pixel on the picture sensor. This implies every pixel will have less light hitting it which is extremely terrible for low light execution. Cameras on rambles like the Parrot Anafi have loads of megapixels, however, the sensor estimate is precisely the same as the sensor measure on the Mavic 2 Zoom, so every pixel is roughly a large portion of the size.

The Hasselblad L1D-20c Camera on the Mavic 2 Pro has a 1-inch picture sensor (the biggest sensor on any automaton this little), so even with the expanded megapixel check each physical pixel is as yet greater than the pixels on the Mavic 2 Zoom. This and the enhanced sensor innovation is the thing that gives the Mavic 2 Pro better low light abilities.

Adjustable Aperture

One detail that no one is by all accounts discussing is the way that the Mavic 2 Zoom doesn’t have a movable gap. The focal point on the Mavic 2 Pro has a gap that goes from f2.8 to f11. This gives you substantially more adaptability for long-presentation photography and whatever other circumstance where more exact introduction control is required.

The main thing that you ought to know about is that changing the gap can negatively affect the general sharpness of a picture.

For instance, If you shoot at f2.8, just a little part of the scene will be sharp and the foundation will be out of core interest. This is known as a shallow profundity of-field.

Shooting at higher numbers like f11 will make everything remain in center, however, the picture generally speaking will be somewhat delicate.

On the off chance that you don’t care for delicate pictures, you should shoot at f2.8 to f5.6 for the keenest outcomes.

For shut everything down, the bigger sensor joined with the f2.8 opening likewise enables you to blow the foundation out of the center for getting a DSLR-like look. This was something already impractical on purchaser ramble.

Video Quality

Video Features Of Both Models

The video quality has improved greatly. This is mainly due to better colors, higher bitrate, and a new video codec. The colors on the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom are very similar the Mavic Air. Everything just looks less magenta too me compared to the old Mavic Pro

Higher Bitrate

Recording in 4K is incredible, yet the goals don’t mean anything if the bitrate isn’t sufficiently high. All recorded video is packed by the camera before it hits the SD card. The bitrate of a video essentially controls the amount it gets packed.

So the higher the bitrate, the less compacted your video will be. Both the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom additionally record at 100Mbps (40Mbps quicker than the DJI Mavic Pro), however, the greatest change is the new H.265 video codec.


HEVC (also known as H.265) is a video compression format just like H.262, but it’s able to maintain almost the same video quality while taking up half as much space. That means when you shoot in H.265, you’re really getting the same quality as if you were using H.264 and shooting at twice the bitrate (200Mbps in this case).

Continuous Autofocus

The other element that the Mavic 2 Pro doesn’t have is stage location and differentiation recognition constant self-adjust.

On the Mavic 2 Pro, you do get self-adjust, however, it’s not genuine consistent self-adjust, so when you fly extremely near something and after that distant, it doesn’t persistently keep the scene in the center.

There are routes around this, such as setting the gap to a high number with the goal that everything is in the center, or sliding the center control physically while flying, however I would’ve gotten a kick out of the chance to see a similar center framework in the Mavic 2 Pro since it is the more costly automaton.

So why buy the Mavic 2 Pro if the video features aren’t as good?

The DJI Mavic 2 Pro may be lacking some of the cool features of the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom like continuous autofocus, but the Mavic 2 Pro has some secret weapons that many people might overlook.

4K Lossless Crop

Despite the fact that the Mavic 2 Pro doesn’t have an optical zoom focal point, as a result of the 20-megapixel sensor you can shoot video in a 4K edit mode that gives you roughly 1.4X lossless zoom. Truth be told, when shooting in the 4K trim mode, you really show signs of improvement video quality on the grounds that the goals of the sensor with a 1.4X yield and the goals of the 4K recording mode are precisely the same.

Which Drone is Right For You?

The price of Mavic 2 Zoom is $1,249 and the Mavic 2 Pro is $1449. There is a difference of $200 in both. What you will get after spending $200 more for DJI Mavic 2 Pro, you’re basically getting better colors, better low light, and higher resolution. That’s why the Mavic 2 Pro gets the Hasselblad branding. This one feature is worth the extra price and every other feature is just a bonus.

I am not saying this one is perfect for your requirement but most important is what you choose for you.
