The Mavic Zoom comes with a 12-megapixel 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor with up to four times lossless zoom, up to 2x optical zoom (24-48mm) to simulate a 96mm telephoto lens to shoot 1080p video and also let users get close to their subjects while maintaining their distance without losing image quality. The company also said that while taking a photo in 24mm wide angle view, the camera captures and patch nine photos together that results in a picture which equals to a 48-megapixel super-resolution photo. The Hybrid auto-focus combines phase and contrast detection for high accuracy of focusing at a faster speed.
The Mavic 2 Zoom supports Dolly Zoom feature that automatically zooms in as the drone flies away from its subject, keeping the subject the same size while the full background of the scene is revealed.
The Mavic 2 Zoom can record 4K video with “extreme detail” at a maximum of 100 megabits per second using the H.265 compression to give users the room to play around in post-processing. The Mavic 2 Zoom also comes with OcuSync 2.0 video transmission to a more stable connection between the drone and the remote controller with the help of auto-switching between 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz frequency. Users can download 1080p video feed and original JPEG images from a distance of up to 8km and instantly upload them to social media.
The Mavic 2 Zoom comes with 3-axis gimbal-stabilized cameras with features such as Task Library, ActiveTrack 2.0, Hyperlapse, Hyperlight, and four panorama modes (Sphere, 180 degrees, horizontal, and vertical).
- The Task Library let you to save captured footage more than once during the flight time.
- The Hyperlapse feature let you to create “professional quality” hyper-lapse videos with the help of Free, CIrcle, Course Lock, and Waypoint.
- The Hyperlight feature helps you in low light photography.
- The ActiveTrack 2.0 feature ensure that the sensor can detect and track subjects automatically during flight.
The Mavic 2 Zoom comes with an internal storage of 8 GB along and you can further expand the memory with an SD card slot. The Mavic 2 Zoom is compatible with DJI Google Series, and feature DJI’s low-noise flight technology. The Mavic 2 Zoom can go up to 72kph in Sports Mode.
For safety, the company has added sensors on all faces of the drone with a time of flight sensor on the top and a total of 10 sensors on all sides of the drones for more accurate obstacle sensing, and safer flight. The company has also improved its Advanced Pilot Assistance System (APAS) which let pilots control the drone in an easier manner. The company has added downward facing LEDs near the propellers making sure that the landing area of the drone is well lit even in low light conditions. Additionally, the company has integrated new GEO system that helps with navigation and prevent the drone from being flown in restricted areas like airports or inform the pilot that it’s not safe to fly the drone on that location.
The Mavic 2 Zoom fuelled with 3830mAh battery and offers a flight time of 31 minutes on a single charge.
