DJI Air 2S will receive a large 1-inch 20-megapixel image sensor
The as-yet-to-be-unveiled DJI Air 2S continues to come through various leaks. For example, TechnikNews and Roland Quandt (Roland Quandt) of WinFuture published a series of images after the machine lit up in the database of the Federal Communications Commission data USA (FCC) last month.
The launch is clearly approaching – DJI Air 2S is expected to be an updated version of last year’s Mavic Air 2 with an improved camera and compatibility with new DJI accessories such as V2 goggles and motion controller introduced with the DJI FPV drone.
But quite unexpectedly, a new image, as well as published a reliable informant OsitaLV on a Twitter infomercial, indicates that the drone will receive an impressive camera with a 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor – the same in both Mavic Pro 2, the most perfect for today quadrocopter amateur companies.
Formally, in terms of resolution, this is below 48 megapixels (Quad Bayer) for the Mavic Air 2. Still, the fourfold larger area promises a huge advantage in light sensitivity, especially in low light conditions. Perhaps the DJI Air 2S can be a full-fledged replacement for the Mavic 2 Pro in the field of automation (the Mavic Air 2 does not support programmed waypoint flight). Note that it was previously reported that the upcoming Air 2S would receive a 1 / 1.7 “sensor.
Other less significant changes are expected to drop the Mavic brand in the name; update smart tracking technology ActiveTrack to version 4.0; support for the more advanced communication standard OcuSync 3.0. Although the drone’s battery and appearance will hardly change, the Air 2S appears to be 30 grams heavier than the Mavic Air 2.
