The original DJI Mavic Pro was a sight to behold: long distance flight, precision flying, long battery life, and a high quality camera. What the original Mavic Pro lacked was purpose. So DJI went to bat with the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, and hit it out of the park. It improved so much that it was given a purpose: one of the best drones for photographers.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - DJI Mavic 2 Pro\r\nThe DJI Mavic 2 Pro makes all the right moves, outplaying and outlasting its predecessor in terms of performance and quality. The Pro 2 is the perfect example of improvement.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe new DJI Mavic 2 Pro is using a new 1-inch CMOS image sensor that\u2019s four times more powerful than the original Pro DJI, which is incorporated into its 20MP Hasselblad camera. Thanks to Hasselblad\u2019s natural Colour Solution technology, images are coming out in far greater detail\u2014especially in low-light situations, with an ISO range up to 12,800. That kind of image quality is what photographers shoot for. Furthermore, video quality gets equal treatment by outputting in 4K, with HDR. That\u2019s far superior than the SNAPTAIN S5C.\r\n\r\nWhen controlling the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, you get quite a bit of help, thanks to intelligent flight modes. This also includes obstacle avoidance. Altogether, it greatly helps reduce the amount of flight time by adding some automation to the process. Flight time is a consistent 31 minutes, unlike the spotty flight time of the Holy Stone HS700D.\r\nDesign\r\nLike other DJI drones (DJI Phantom, DJI Mavic Air, Mavic Mini), the Mavic 2 Pro shares the same design philosophy as its siblings: portability. The DJI Mavic 2 Pro can shrink its overall size by folding in its arms, unlike the tiny, but rigid Potensic T25. In fact, this same design philosophy even seeps into the remote controller. Two foldable arms are placed at the bottom of the controller, which are used to snap your phone along the bottom. Underneath those arms are detachable joysticks that can be removed and screwed into place. And with your phone so close, it\u2019s even easier to share photos and videos on the DJI GO app.\r\nValue\r\nThe DJI Mavic 2 Pro is more than just a fancy drone. Its performance is so good, it has no problem performing in a professional setting; in fact, it\u2019s built for it. Because of that, we wholeheartedly believe the Mavic 2 Pro has excellent value. It\u2019s expensive, sure, but the Mavic 2 Pro has a niche use. Still, the original Mavic Pro is nothing to sneeze at. If it\u2019s still possible, the older model can still be sold for a tidy profit and put towards the new Pro 2.\r\nDJI Mavic 2 Pro Wrap Up\r\nFor first timers, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro isn\u2019t for you. Not just because of its pricing, but because of its use. This is best left in the hands of a photographer. However, if you\u2019re a photographer, what you get in return is essentially a professional flying camera. It\u2019s fast, takes exceptionally high quality images and videos, and can be easily carried in your pocket\u2014provided you\u2019re good at controlling a drone.
