DJI Mavic 2 Pro Review
Why I chose the Mavic Pro 2 over the Phantom Models:
I like to hike. It really is as simple as that. I hike a lot and the prospect of getting aerial footage and images from the peaks of mountains ranges like the Reeks in Co Kerry or the 12 Bens in Connemara here in Ireland was too tempting to turn down. Would I be able to haul a Phantom 4 pro along with my camera gear and possibly camping gear up the side of a mountain? No way. In my Tenba BYOB 10 ICU I can hold: Nikon Z6 with 24-70 F4 attached, Mavic Pro 2 drone, controller and two batteries, 70-300 Lens along with FTZ adapter, camera batteries and lens cloths. All that in a small compact ICU measuring 26.7 x 11.4 x 20.3 cm. Magic
The 1 Inch sensor. This is vastly improved over the originally Mavic Pro. I’ll get to the noise performance later in the next section but I’ve found the dynamic range really is excellent. My advice would be to expose for the shadows and the midtones and leave the highlights relatively exposed. Increasing shadows in post introduces a lot of noise and the highlights are well capable of being pulled back.
Is this drone a capable tool for aerial photography?
