The DRONE we need, but don’t deserve.I’m not exactly sure what year the guys from DJI are from, but its not the 2010’s or 2020’s. The technology they are creating, and innovating, with really no other competition, is mind boggling. The only explanation is they are from the distant future and DJI created a time machine, probably what the Mavic Pro 5 is going to come with, and they are currently in our dimension to “wow” us.Seriously, though. I have owned some drones in the past from DJI but the Mavic Pro 2 is something special. I paid roughy $1499 for mine, although the price seems to fluctuate these days due to changing tariffs. I would say if you work in the professional photo or video realm, this piece of tech is worth every penny and more. In fact, if I were to lose or break mine and had to buy a new one, and they were now selling for $2,500… I’d still buy it. Thats how much I value this piece of equipment.Work I’ve done with my drone includes wedding films, YouTube videos, landscape photos for canvas prints, land surveillance, dolphin watching (and Manta-ray watching, yes Id fly it out from the beach shoreline and you can see these awesome animals in their habitat), self filming (using the built in tracking), and general photography and videography from viewpoints otherwise inaccessible.The thing about drones that some people overlook, is they arent just for video, flying over awesome landscapes to get cool video. These things basically give you range and POV that was previously impossible for creators. I included a shot I took of a protest at Jackson Square in New Orleans, this shot would’ve been impossible without a helicopter 10 years ago.The 1″ sensor on this drones camera is noting short of incredible. Some Full Frame users (such as myself, I shoot with an a7iii) will scuff at such a “small” sensor which is honestly silly. Its still much larger than your phone or a GoPros sensor, and it does an incredible job with image quality, both video and photo.Low light, this is the best drone ive ever used as well. Although generally the best time to fly for me is sunrise and sunset. Its when the Earth is most beautiful, and this drone captures every square inch of beauty.This thing apparently can go around 5 miles from the controller!? Ive never even taken it a full mile away (ive gotten close though). I cant imagine going that far, although if the situation called for it, I would. With that said, ive had exactly ZERO issues with losing connectivity. Ive never once had any scares (with the exception of a mamma bird trying to attack it once when I was close to a nest unbeknown to me).The last thing Ill say about this drone that just makes me gush is the portability. When you open the box and get familiar with it, its like these guys just refined every possible thing. The controller breaks down so intuitively and folds up, the drone gets small enough to the size of a DSLR footprint, so it fits in most of my camera bags easily.I never go to a shoot without this thing. My essentials for any shoot is my camera body, my 24-70, and my drone. Its that simple, this is an essential piece of kit to me, and I cannot say enough good things about it.I dont even have anything negative to say. I won’t say the battery life is bad, 30 minutes of flight time is plenty if you plan your shots out and dont just fly aimlessly. Bring an extra battery if you’re going on a trip somewhere remote.I’m sure the new Mavic Air 2 is amazing as well, and idk what the Mavic Pro 3 is going to bring because this drone, by almost all my criteria, is near perfect.
JESUS SAVED ME –
BEAUTIFUL colors and crispy image quality!The media could not be loaded.
Only thing I dislike about the Mavic 2 Pro is that the battery doesn’t last long, especially in the windy beach area I live.I get 20-25 minutes, just because the bird is always self-correcting as it fights the wind gusts. I go easy on the throttle and speed, but still, this area is windy.Other than the battery not lasting long, this thing yields great, satisfying results. You don’t need to have prior experience flying RC aircraft, because the thing stays in flight by itself.It automatically does all the corrections and compensations. All you need to do is watch your surroundings and go up, down, left or right as you move the camera gimbal to your liking.Once you get used to the controls, it’s intuitive, plus you also can configure them to your preference. This thing has very advanced systems to stay in impressively stable flight while you focus on your image composition. It comes with Beginner Mode enabled, so the drone doesn’t get more than 100 feet away from you or higher than 98 feet, and it also restricts its speed and control sensitivity.It also won’t take off without a GPS signal lock. It’s a nice feature. I used it for three battery changes to really learn everything before disabling it. This type of camera drone feels very different from RC helicopters and smaller drones, which require constant control input.As long as you respect the law and fly safe, you’ll find a new source of joy and creativity in a flying camera. Everything looks different from up there. You have so many more possibilities for composing photo and video scenes.Anyway, the colors on the camera are very natural and lifelike. Those shots I enclosed are DNG files converted to JPEG on Snapseed without any adjustments.Last three shots are JPEGs straight out of the drone so you can see that Hasselblad’s HNCS color profile look is more than just marketing non-sense.The video I enclosed was shot in H.265 in the regular color mode, not in DLog-M or HLG, to show you what choices the drone made.I do prefer DLog-M to preserve highlights, and to color-grade the footage to my preference. As you can see in that video, the highlights are blown-out in the waves.I highly recommend the Mavic 2 Pro. That little Sony-powered Hasselblad camera is the real deal. Videos look great, too, but you want this model for the photo quality and colors.There are newer DJI drones now, such as the Air 2S, which I also own, and the recently released Mavic 3, but the sensor crop on the Mavic 2 Pro’s 4K HQ Mode gives it a cinematic look.It’s a unique aesthetic to this drone, plus its video is not ultra-sharp for being 4K, so it looks more filmic and less digital.Peace!

This is a modern marvel with a few issuesI know there have been drone operators out there for 50 years but for someone like me to be able to pick this up and fly it is just awesome. I could rave about how awesome this thing is for hours so I will limit the rest of my review to the things that bother me about it.0) I got it on sale for black Friday for quite a deal, I’m not so sure I’d be as happy if I paid full price.1) Often I get out in the field and am told I need to update firmware, even though I just did it two days ago (and you can’t fly unless you do). So check before you go out. This is actually the #1 thing that bothers me.2) You cant’ to the USB or SD slot without opening the arms up. This is the #2 thing that bothers me.3) It seems they over-hyped the camera. I am a photographer and the camera is kind of meh. You can shoot in RAW (dng) and you can fully control the aperture, ISO, and shutter … which is super awesome and there a ton of modes (which are all awesome) but as soon as you start cropping, you start to see issues and I think I unreasonably might have expected the quality to be a little better.4) DJI is a little too big brother (Which extra concerns me with the new FAA regs coming down the pike). Speaking of which, make sure to read up on that before dumping this kind of money into a drone that might be grounded in a year or two. Also, they are based in China so China probably knows where you fly your drone.5) I’ve been through TWO controllers in a few months. The dials on top of the controller broke on both of them with light use (they stick and don’t jump back into position). They appear to be very cheap and break easily. I intend to send them both back for repair one at a time so I’m not grounded, but it sucks.

Remote Disconnect Errors From First Power On, Sending Drone Flying Off in All DirectionsLet me tell you something, for a $1500 drone… Quality control is crap. If I thought this was a isolated incident… I would’ve sent it back and got a second, but reading the forums… This happens to too many people with some workarounds, unfortunately they didn’t work for me. Making me think that the controller was bad from the factory. Which, the second it disconnected, sent it off flying in random directions and had it crash once. The scary part was, there was no rhyme or reason. I would disconnect the cable on my phone reconnect it… then it would just connect seconds or minutes later.For a company who is touted as being one of the premier drone manufacturers, their quality control is just terrible. If the drone cost two or $300, I could forgive it. But when you were paying a premium price for a premium drone, you don’t expect amateur issues. Not to mention, I was lucky if I can get it to fly a half mile without video disconnect. No matter which way I turn the antennae’s or where I flew it. Not to mention, the video quality even with the 1 inch sensor was worse than that of a half inch sensor at 4K… and considering that they had the forethought to put the 1 inch sensor on this drone, how is it that the older Evo has 60 frames per second but this drone does not? Then I also had an issue of getting statically lines in the video when I moved the drone forward. I have no clue what caused it, but it was obviously not only disconnecting from the remote, it was also getting interference from the main CPU to the video chip.So, instead of returning it and getting a second, which I didn’t know it would work or not. I decided to go with an Autel Evo. Which has been a dream do not only fly, but the video quality is second to none even at night. And was much a higher quality than the Mavic 2 Pro.What I found out after doing some research is that the Mavic in fact, does not use all of it sensor in the high-quality mode, therefore you aren’t getting the benefit of the 1 inch sensor to give you that extra light. Which is why the video quality at night looks so horrible.Yes, you can clean it up and post which I’m going to guess is what the decent looking videos from it do. But I wasn’t going to pay so much for a drone that basically required me to do surgery after the fact. Which the Evo does not. I can post videos directly from the drone and they look incredible, with very vibrant colors and sharp incredible imagery.Making me salivate over the prospect of the Evo 2 and it’s 8K/24w/ 48 Megapixel still camera and it’s 6K 1” camera, which are interchangeable. The cool thing about Autel… they are from Washington state, it’s a small company with 14 employees and you can call and talk to anyone of them that you want. Which means, fast, efficient American customer service. Not to mention, they listen to fans of their drones and implement features because of them.Evo 2 should be available in mid to the end of March & I can’t wait!
Camera Drone that DeliversI have a Nikon Z6 which takes outstanding photos using RAW, particularly of our gardens and land. I wanted to get a drone that would do something close in quality but aerial view. The Magic 2 Pro delivers. It can shoot in RAW and although the quality is not quite as good as the Z6 it is good enough. I don’t shoot much video, but I am enjoying using the video as well.To actually fly the drone and use the camera takes learning and practice. I look forward to it. The battery life is not great so I bought one extra and not the two that come with the extra kit. So far, this is more than enough for my use. I have to take the case off my iPhone 12 for it to fit in the controller. This is annoying but doable. Watching YouTube instruction videos is better than the printed or online instructions.

Mavic Pro II with Hasselblad camera and DJI gimbal rocksI have now had this drone for 6 months. I bought the DJI insurance plan too. This drone replaces my 2012 drone and is leagues ahead of the old one in safety, awareness and function. It is like comparing a Model T to a modern car.The Hasselblad camera was the main reason for buying this new drone. The camera resolution is awesome. When taking aerial stills, it is equivalent to parking your camera on a tripod 150 feet up in the air. But the drone is far smoother because a tripod that tall would wobble in the wind.The eyes on the drone make flying this drone very easy. If you are approaching an unseen object from your point of view on the ground, the drone will see the object and throw the brakes or steer around that object to avoid a crash. This is similar to having a sensor in the front bumper of a new car that throws the brakes to avoid a crash if the driver gets distracted.

Best drone out of all of my last six dronesI have had the DJI phantom three, phantom four, Mavic air, Mavic air to and now one of my all-time favorites the Mavic two pro one of the best drones I have ever used the best quality color video east to use I have never flown a drone that was easier to fly and navigate but also be able to have full control with my video everything is at the touch of a button on the base of the controller or I’m able to do some Fine-tuning things on my app as I am in flight thank you DJI for another amazing drone

Incredible product, but DJI support is bad. +1 for ordering through Amazon!The drone is amazing; it captures the most incredible footage, excellent quality, fairly easy to fly. A remarkable feat of engineering.My DJI support experience was not good — the gimbal was malfunctioning, so after a week I sent it to be repaired. They returned it to me two weeks later without fixing the problem, and didn’t reply to my message for another ten days.After contacting Amazon support, they sent a new drone which works perfectly, and took a return of the broken one. So I’m happy I ordered it through Amazon rather than direct with DJI.

Fantastic droneLove this thing. Started out with DJI spark which was good but not great. Got a Air (first gen) and everything that I didn’t like about spark was fixed in the Air. But saw the 1” sensor and wanted to try goggles so purchased this Pro. Glad I did. It’s just fantastic. Raw photos are a joy to edit in photoshop, and I love the waypoint system. The battery life allows you to get super creative as you really don’t have to constantly worry about having to return to home. The picture on iPhone is amazing. And the range is just ridiculous. I’ve captured gorgeous photos from over a mile and a half away. If you can afford it, buy it. I can’t imagine you’d be disappointed.
Excellent Images and FeaturesMy first drone and I’m very pleased with the quality and features. It takes a while to learn all the features but there are several excellent videos on flying the drone. The documentation is lacking in the “How To” area. While it describes the drone and controller, it does not tell you how to use them. Support exists in the Facebook sites but not 100%.
