DJI Mini 2 Specs

DJI Mini 2 Camera Specs

The Mini 2 upgrades the Mini platform with 4K video, RAW images, and panoramic photos. Still lacking are HDR, hyperlight, and 4K-60. The benefits of the Air 2’s 48 MP camera are limited to its video recording capability. The full resolution 48 MP photos are nothing to write home about. The HDR video from the Mavic Air 2 is its stand-out feature, making it arguably the most versatile flying camera under $1000.

DJI Mini 2 Flight Modes

Still missing in the Mini 2 are Point of Interest, APAS (obstacle avoidance), Astroid, and Hyperlapse. DJI had to give you some reason to want to shell out more for the Mavic Air 2! Compared to the original Mavic Mini, the Mini 2 adds digital zoom and Boomerang mode.

Mavic Round-Up – The DJI Mini 2 Specs

The specs on the Mini 2 were really surprising to us – they are such an improvement. DJI added Ocusync 2.0 with a dramatically improved range. They also added the 4K camera and made the drone much more capable in the wind. The only downside to the Mini 2 is the size of its remote, which makes it slightly less portable than the original Mavic Mini. Overall, you can’t go wrong with any of these drones, but we have to push the original Mavic Mini slightly below the other two in our rankings. The Mavic Air 2 is still the stand-out prosumer drone under $1000.
