This morning, DJI officially launched its latest “Royal MAVIC” drone, the DJI Mavic Mini 2. The standard version will cost 2,899 yuan, while the Changfei suit will cost 3,799 yuan, $575.
So what are the features and hardware updates of the Mini 2 this time around, and what are the improvements from the previous Mini 1?
First of all, there is no obvious change in the appearance size of Mini 2. After adding the blade to the body, the unrolled size of Mini 1 is 245x289x56mm and 245x290x55mm. Through comparison, it can be seen that there is almost no difference between the two.
Interestingly, in terms of take-off weight, the official parameter of Mini 2 is less than 249 grams. Why? Instead of just saying 249 grams like Mini1 does, right?
The official explanation given by DJI is that the standard weight of the aircraft is 242g (including batteries, blades and microSD CARDS), and the weight of the product may vary due to different batches of materials, etc., please refer to the actual product.
Dji has updated Ocusync2.0 image transmission technology for Mini 2, which is a great progress compared with the enhanced Wi-Fi of the previous generation. The maximum distance of image transmission can reach 10 kilometers, and the maximum bit rate of real-time image transmission can be upgraded to 8 Mbps. It will be less likely to lose contact immediately after takeoff.
In terms of shooting, the Mini 2 is equipped with a 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor, with an effective pixel of 12 million, supports 4K/ 30FPS at the highest level, has a 4x zoom video shooting, and is equipped with a three-axis mechanical stabilization system. Compared with the previous generation of Mini 1, which does not support 4K and has no zoom function, the picture quality and practicality have been greatly improved.
In terms of photos and editing, the Mini 2 adds one-button panorama, AEB surround exposure, and RAW format to support smart photo optimization and mobile fast transmission.
Elsewhere, the Mini 2 has a maximum takeoff altitude of 4,000 meters, a maximum level 5 wind resistance, a maximum flight time of 31 minutes, and an upgraded battery capacity of 5200mAh.
The previous remote didn’t work on the MAVIC Mini 2 because of a different image transmission mode.
