DJI Mini 2 drone unboxing video has appeared – Mavic Air 2 features up to 250 grams
Popular drone maker DJI has recently been in the news with plans to launch a new mini drone called the Mavic Mini 2. The unannounced product recently appeared on the website of the American electronics retail store Adorama, and now videos with its unboxing, test, and main characteristics have appeared.
The YouTube video shows a retail box and drone, as well as accessories inside the box. It is curious that the device will be called DJI Mini 2, not Mavic Mini 2. That is, the company followed the path of Osmo Pocket – the second version of this stabilizer camera also received the more concise name DJI Pocket 2. Apparently, the manufacturer wants to separate its ultra-compact drones from more expensive Mavic series models.
But the key characteristics of DJI Mini 2 are much more interesting – the company managed to add support for Ocusync 2.0 communication, working at a distance of up to 10 km, into a very light body (the declared weight with a microSD card and a battery is 242 grams, that is, registration of a drone under Russian law is not required) (in our CE standard – up to 6 km), and the ability to shoot in 4K resolution.
The main characteristics are as follows:
- a lens with 24 mm EGF (83 °), f / 2.8 aperture, and fixed focal length from 1 meter to infinity;
- ISO range from 100 to 3200;
- electronic shutter speed from 1/8000 to 4 s;
- the maximum photo size is 4000 × 3000 (nothing is known about RAW support and it is unlikely to be present);
- support for shooting 4K at 30fps or 1080p at 60fps (HDR mode is also not worth the wait);
- the charging capacity of the lithium-polymer battery is 2250 mAh and the flight time in the air is up to 31 minutes;
- low wind resistance: 8.5–10.5 m / s;
- 3-axis mechanical stabilizer;
- support for panoramic shooting, automatic video, and intelligent modes (there is no support for Active Track, as well as Waypoint mode for flying according to a predetermined program).
Other highlights include the new remote that we first saw in the Mavic Air 2, which is not surprising given the Ocusync 2.0.
In fact, the Chinese company has managed to pack the main features of the Mavic Air 2 into an ultra-compact body. The battery compartment is closed with a lid, so there is no even a ghostly chance of the battery falling out in the air.
The unboxing obviously involves the extended DJI Mini 2 fly more kit, because, besides the usual cables and other things, we see a case, three batteries, and a general charger for them. Let’s remind: judging by the data released earlier, the DJI Mini 2 will cost $ 449 – $ 50 more than the Mavic Mini. And the Mavic Mini 2 fly more kit with additional batteries and accessories will rise in price to $ 599 instead of $ 499 for the original model.
