DJI Introduces the Mavic Pro 4K DronePosted 20/11/2016 at 6:07 PM
In line with their tradition of high-grade quadcopters, DJI has launched the compact but reliable Mavic Pro 4K Quadcopter Camera which is only 1/6 the size of the Phantom 4. If that is not compact enough, it also has foldable propeller arms and blades which make it easier to store in a bag. However, this aerial video camera has more to offer than just its size. To say the least, it performs big regardless of situation and terrain.
The power of the Mavic Pro starts with stabilized camera with 3-axis gimbal stabilization to maintain video clarity despite shaky conditions like strong winds and precipitation. With the help of this Electronic Image Stabilization, you can capture 4K Video at 30fps or 12 Megapixel still images. The images can be saved as Adobe DNG RAW images for better editing versatility.
To complement the camera, the Mavic Pro is also equipped with various shooting modes that will help enhance every image or footage taken. Even if you are not holding the quadcopter’s remote controller, the Gesture Mode allows automatic recording or capturing by doing certain gestures like the raising of arms. When flying indoors or in small spaces, activate the Tripod Mode for slower flight speed and precise framing.
Likewise, the Mavic’s ActiveTrack technology lets you choose from three options: Trace to place the drone behind or in front of the subject, Spotlight to keep the camera drone trained on your subject, and Profile to let it run alongside the one being captured. Finally, the Sport Mode activates a more agile and responsive Mavic that can navigate through any terrain at a top speed of 40mph. This is ideal for documenting extreme sports like downhill biking and snowboarding.
The DJI Mavic Pro has two ultrasonic range finders to create a 3D map of the drone’s surroundings. Likewise, it has 24 computing cores to ensure top-flight performance all the time. Speaking of top-flight, the redundant sensors detect inconsistencies in GPS and GLONASS positioning while the forward and downward vision sensors provide precise movements. These sensors also aid in detecting obstacles for as far as 15 metres away. From there, it can either choose to go around or fly above these obstructions.
Aside from these safety features, the Mavic also comes in an aerodynamic design that reduces air resistance and an improved propulsion system which includes foldable propellers that cover nearly half the drone. This is a significant upgrade from previous DJI quadcopter propellers that cover only ¼ of the set-up. Also, the drone has a return to base function that automatically brings back the Mavic from its point of origin.
A device that easily fits on your pocket, the DJI Mavic Pro Remote Controller is powered by OcuSync Transmission System which extends its range for up to 7km. It also allows a 1080p or 720p live feed of the Mavic’s surroundings. Meanwhile, the controller’s built-in monitor is equipped with TapFly intelligent vision which allows the quadcopter to maneuver to a certain location with a touch of the screen. It also provides visual to the Terrain Follow function wherein the Mavic continues to fly at a height of 0.3 to 10 metres above ground even if you are scaling a mountain or running up a hill. Likewise, you can control the Mavic through your smartphone with Virtual Joysticks.
To feel as if you are in flight with the Mavic, you can use the compatible virtual reality goggles which contain two 1920x1080 screens with 85° angle of view that provide up to 1080p of live views. It also has super low latency to avoid output delays because it directly connects to the Mavic and not through a cable or a WiFi link.
Though the Mavic has a smaller battery as compared to other DJI drones, it can still give a flight time of up to 27 minutes which can cover a distance of up to 13 km. Featuring an advanced battery management system, this 3830 mAh LiPo 3S battery calculates battery levels accurately to come up with precise remaining flight times. This power source is also boosted with low temperature protection as well to keep the Mavic running well in the cold. It is also protected against overcharging or discharging.
Aside from the remote controller, you can also navigate the DJI Mavic Pro via the DJI GO App which you can download on your smart device. Beyond the controls it can provide, this application also has simple video editing templates and functions that make footages look more professional. The DJI GO also allows live video streaming and easy sharing to social media platforms. You can also share your photos or videos to the DJI Skypixel online community.
