Mavic Pro 2: The Rumours and NewsPosted 7/08/2018 at 1:46 AM
There have been rumours about what Chinese tech company, DJI, would be releasing in the latter part of 2018. No confirmation has been made so far. However, everyone's taking really good guesses and taking hints from what Chinese media are dropping. One DJI release that people have been putting their fingers on is a possibility of a DJI Mavic Pro 2 release.
Here's what we know so far:
It may have interchangeable lenses or two separate models
There may be a chance for DJI to release two models: a zoom and pro. With the zoom model, it can shoot images and videos with a 24-48mm lens called the Dolly Zoom. The Pro model comes with a much larger sensor than its predecessor. This may mean that you might be choosing one over the other and depending on your needs.
It may have a Swedish touch and a larger censor
DJI has acquired Hasselblad sometime in 2016 and as a distinct feature for the Pro model, they have advertised it as a Hasselblad camera. Additionally, there might be Infrared 3D sensing and a larger 1 to 1.7-inch CMOS censor.
It may have a 4820mAh lithium-ion battery capacity and 15.2 V power with a 32-minute flight time
The thing about this tidbit is that for the rumoured DJI Mavic Pro 2, it might not be compatible with older battery models. You'll probably have to buy or resell your older batteries should you choose to upgrade if this were true. However, with the new battery for this rumoured release, the flight time is at an estimated 32 minutes and because it is a lithium-ion battery, it helps the drone's machine to be capable of shooting in weathers of up to -40 degrees Celsius.
It may have brushless motors for quieter propellers
You'll know a drone is nearby by just the sound of its propellers. The DJI Mavic Pro 2 is predicted to be 15% times quieter than previous models.
It may be priced at USD $1299 or higher.
The DJI Mavic Pro 2 is rumoured to shoot 12-megapixel photos, film videos at 4k 60fps with 100mbps video bitrate with improved low light photography capability. It will also run at an average of 45mph while in operation. The entire model is expected to have a price tag of USD $1299 or higher.
So far, we're all still anticipating DJI to announce and confirm our hunches for quite some time. Going by the rumours, it looks like this will be a big deal with drone enthusiasts - especially with having a drone with interchangeable lenses!
