Default Mavic 2 Zoom vs. Mavic Pro

Mavic 2 Zoom vs. Mavic Pro
Mavic Pro is two years old, Time for a change.
Measuring 354 mm (13.9 in) diagonally, the new Mavic 2 Zoom bigger
The takeoff weight for the Mavic 2 Zoom is approaching a kilogram. All that extra gear means the Mavic 2 Zoom are quite a bit heavier than the original Pro.
The battery capacity Mavic 2 Zoom has had a increase of 20 mAh, which is impossible to tell the difference..
Flight time
That small battery increase – as well as a reported 19 percent decrease in body drag – lets the Mavic 2 Zoom stay aloft for up to 31 minutes. That's one whole minute more than the Pro. Mavic 2 Zoom quieter in the air than their predecessors.
You can fly the Mavic 2 Zoom up to 8 km (5 mi) away from you before the connection is lost, which is 1 km (0.7 mi) further than the Pro.
Top speed
The drag decrease that boosts flight time is also responsible for a faster top speed in the Mavic 2 Zoom and Pro. Both drones can clock in at 44.7 mph (72 km/h.
Vision sensors
Obstacle detection Mavic 2 Zoom has gone above (literally) and beyond, with what DJI calls Omnidirectional sensors. These allow the new drones to detect obstacles in front and behind them, above and below them, and to their left and right.
Mavic 2 Zoom is, as its name suggests, the 2x optical zoom integrated into the camera..Using a 1/2-inch CMOS sensor the 2 can take 20-megapixel stills, and in a wider range of lighting conditions with an ISO range of up to 12,800..
Video resolution
4K video, with a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160, at 30 frames per second. The older models can also bump that up to what's known as Cinematic 4K (C4K), which stretches the image horizontally to 4,096 pixels at 24 frames per second.
Slow motion video
Mavic 2 Zoom crank it up to Full HD.
MicroSD card with a capacity of up to 128 GB. Mavic 2 Zoom carry 8 GB of internal memory, in case you get airborne before remembering you forgot to slot a card in.
Flight modes
Most of the usual flight modes are carried across to the new models. Sport ditches the finesse and just focuses on fast flying, which is where the top speeds are hit, while TapFly lets you tap on the screen to tell the drone where to go. Waypoints lets users set up a path of points to follow, and then there's the usual settings like Course Lock and Home Lock to help keep you oriented.
Gesture controls seem to be missing from the Mavic 2 Zoom, but that's no big loss.
Camera modes
DJI is making good use of the new toys on the Mavic 2s. The Zoom's headline act is the new Dolly Zoom mode, where the drone locks onto the subject then slowly flies backward while simultaneously zooming in. The mind-bending end result is that the subject stays where it is but the background warps closer, in a once-difficult-to-pull-off cinematic trick made famous by the likes of Hitchcock, Jaws … and um, Everybody Loves Raymond.
The Zoom can also take what DJI calls Super Resolution photos, which are made up of nine zoomed-in shots stitched together to form one massive 48-megapixel panorama.
Both Mavic 2s can also shoot a range of panoramas stretched horizontally, vertically, 180 degrees or into an entire sphere. Hyperlapse is a new mode where the aircraft shoot a series of still shots while following a set path, then automatically processes them into a timelapse video. Both new drones also have more advanced versions of ActiveTrack, the system that helps them follow moving subjects.
And of course, there's the usual QuickShot modes like Circle, Boomerang, Point of Interest and Asteroid, which all focus on and orbit the subject in different ways.
Price (US$)
Mavic 2 Zoom US$1,249
