DJI Mavic 2 Pro Sample Footage

The DJI Mavic 2 Pro is the first drone in this price range that we find has adequate image quality for our needs. Ming Thein has clarified:

At base ISO, we have a solid 11.5-12 stops of usable DR; a bit more if you are careful with exposure and post processing. This is a noticeable improvement over the original Mavic, and given the way highlight rolloff has been tuned, quite close to what M4/3 delivers in practice.

These are interesting cameras.  Do not discount what 3 1/2″ sensors can produce for low light quality (it may be comparable or better than a single 1″ sensor).  The Z280 in particular may be a better match for some people who are using a DSLR or mirrorless style camera to shoot with.  The ENG world will love this.  We do feel the Z280 is a bit overpriced but for the time being it doesn’t really have an equivalent on the market.
