DJI launches the Mini 2 drone with 4K/30p video, Raw photos
DJI has unveiled its latest drone - the DJI Mini 2.
The new drone appears almost identical to its predecessor, and it weighs the same too, coming in at a puny 249g (most likely to keep the weight under US Federal Aviation Authority restrictions on drone size).
In contrast to the same-same exterior, DJI have focussed their attention on the internals - the most interesting feature of which is a new 1/2.3-inch, 12-megapixel sensor capable of shooting 4K/30p video at 100Mbps. That sensor/lens combo is also capable of capturing Raw photos—one of our criticisms of the original Mavic Mini.
When it comes to flying the thing, there are improvements to the Mini 2's transmission technology, which has gained DJI’s OcuSync 2.0 tech.
According to DJI, this will increase transmission range by 150% compared to the original Mini for a maximum line-of-sight range of 10km. There are also upgraded motors that will also improve flight time, acceleration, top speed and wind resistance.
At launch there are a numer of additional accessories also available, including a DIY creative kit for customizing the look of the Mini, a 360-degree propeller guard, bag, charging display case, and an adapter for attaching an LED screen to the top of the drone.
