The DJI Mavic Air 2 has launched with some impressive specs that match and even surpass its bigger brother, the Mavic 2 Pro. The 48MP photos, 4k 60 fps video, HDR, 34-minute flight time, 10km transmission range, and ActiveTrack 3.0. Is it all just hype or is the Mavic Air 2 the next drone you need?
I have now had my Mavic Air 2 for about a week, and I am extremely impressed with it and what it can do. When getting a new drone there is always the thought in the back of your head that it is not going to do what it is advertised. This is not the case for the Mavic Air 2 from DJI.
The first thing I noticed when I got the Mavic Air 2 in my hands was how light it is for the power packed inside of it. Mavic Air 2 only weighs 1.26 pounds (570 grams), for reference the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra weighs 0.48 pounds (220 grams).
The Mavic Air 2 is equipped with a 4k 60fps HDR-capable sensor that sure is impressive for its tiny size. The video I have been able to capture with the drone so far is impressive and really shows the power the drone has. The drone is also capable of 12MP and 48MP photos which look great once taken back into an editing program.
