When it comes to drones, there is one particular name that stands heads and shoulders above the rest: DJI. The company has rolled out some pretty memorable drones in the past, and the future continues to look bright with the release of the Mavic 2 Zoom. The Mavic 2 Zoom happens to be the first foldable consumer drone in the world complete with optical zoom capability, which would be an interesting way of shooting your videos from special angles. It will be powered by a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor, ensuring that whatever creative storytelling that you have set out to embark upon will be done in the utmost professional level.
With the Mavic 2 Zoom, one will be able to get closer to the subject at a moment’s notice through a combination of two-times optical zoom (24-48mm) with two-times digital zoom that will simulate a 96mm telephoto lens which will capture lossless video in Full HD resolution. With hybrid auto-focus in place on the Mavic 2 Zoom, it will merge both phase and contrast detection in order to deliver higher focus accuracy alongside an increased focus speed of up to 40% faster than ever. With this drone, you can shoot vivid 12-megapixel photos, or perhaps try out the brand new Super Resolution feature that will rely on optical zoom in order to capture and stitch nine photos together automatically, resulting in a highly detailed 48-megapixel image. Folks who love landscape photography will find this particular function invaluable.
Apart from that, the Mavic 2 Zoom has the exclusive new Dolly Zoom QuickShot mode. This mode will open up a whole new visual language door when it comes to storytelling, something that only professional cinematographers had access to prior. In Dolly Zoom QuickShot mode, it creates an otherworldly warped perspective as it automatically zooms in as it flies away from its subject, ensuring that the subject remains at the same size while the full background of the scene is revealed. The cameras will capture vivid 4K ultra-high definition video with extreme detail, while recording at a maximum bitrate of 100 megabits per second using the H.265 compression codec.
