The incredibly well-priced DJI Mavic 2 Zoom Drone Quadcopter shoots quality video whilst maintaining industry-leading flight capabilities.
This drone has been very well received by pundits and, with the video output of 1080p up to 120fps, 2.7K up to 60fps and 4K up to 30fps, is highly recommended for videography work – not to mention that it is also a great deal of fun to use for video.
A top speed of approximately 44.7 mph (71.9 kmh) and a maximum flight time of 31 minutes, combined with improvements in connectivity and GPS control, give the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom a range of almost 5 miles (8 km). However, with line of sight restrictions in place in many jurisdictions, the Mavic 2’s zoom functionality allows quality shots still to be captured at greater distances than previous models.
Covered with sensors, the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom also has excellent omnidirectional obstacle avoidance making fast mode shot to capture as safe as possible.
Release Your Inner Hitchcock With the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom’s Dolly Function
The DJI Mavic 2 Zoom is equipped with an outstanding camera boasting a 2x optical zoom with a focal length of 24-48mm (35mm format equivalent). The 2x (24-48mm) optical zoom camera is supported by a 12 MP 1/2.3” CMOS sensor and supplemented by the impressive Dolly Zoom function. Outputs are 4x lossless zoom FHD video and 48MP resolution photos.
Replicate, with ease, the awesome dolly zoom effect, infamously used by Hitchcock in the movie Vertigo and later, and equally infamously, replicated by Spielberg in Jaws.
Dolly Zoom mode facilitates this effect automatically flying the DJ Mavic 2 Zoom backward whilst also zooming in on the image target, creating a smooth and professional look to the compression of the shot.
Additionally, the hybrid autofocus feature combines the 2x digital zoom with the 2x 24-48 optical zoom lens creating a 96mm telephoto zoom without loss of resolution keeping the image sharp, focused and in full HD.
Expand your creative options with the dynamic perspectives provided by the zoom capabilities of the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom – record and reproduce images efficiently through mid-range to wide angle.
Automated Features Makes Professional Video Achievable for Both Experienced and Novice Users Flying to achieve certain cinematic shots can be quite a challenge even for experienced drone videographers.
The hyperlapse feature allows flight patterns and settings to be pre-programmed and run automatically, reducing some of the risks to novice users. The Mavic 2 Zoom quadcopter’s pre-planned flight modes and effective obstacle avoidance combine to allow users to catch exceptionally challenging shots without the risk of interference or collision.
The DJI Mavic 2 Zoom Improved Design and Quality
The Mavic 2 Zoom has a much more powerful motor and a considerably stronger gimbal than previous models. The improved quality of the overall build is quite noticeable in the placement of the SD card slot, the new one-piece gimbal cover and the generally quieter and all-around improved flight performance which is also enhanced by the longer battery life.
