When DJI released the Inspire it changed the rules for gaining aerial shots. When it released the Mavic, it changed them again! The Mavic 2 Pro provides a compromise between portability and images quality, although not up to the standard of the Inspire, they are still pretty good and accepted by all broadcasters.
1-inch CMOS Sensor
The brand new 1-inch CMOS sensor has an active sensing area four times more effective than the original Mavic Pro. The large sensor also means better performance in low-light environments with a more extensive ISO range, max ISO lifted from 3200 to 12800.
10-bit Dlog-M Color Profile
The Mavic 2 Pro supports a 10-bit Dlog-M colour profile that yields higher dynamic range for more flexibility in the grading room. The system records over 1 billion colours (compared to the 16 million colours from traditional 8-bit colour coding technologies) and retains more in-depth details in both highlights and shadows. Now you can capture the subtlest gradations at sunset or sunrise, leaving greater space for post-production.
With 4K 10-bit HDR support, the Mavic 2 Pro can be plugged into a 4K TV with HLG and will immediately play back footage with the right color tones. The brighter highlights and increased contrast are what make HDR video so appealing.
It has an very impressive flight time of 27 minutes and has excellent dual satalite
I intend to carry the Mavic on most shoots (please request just in case!) and charge on a ‘if used’ basis. There have been a few times where we have turned up on location which was begging for some quick, easily achieved aerials. The Mavic 2 Pro lets you do that and more.
