Drones have become one of the most popular gadgets in recent years, as many models offer the ability to record breathtaking photos and videos from heights and positions that cannot be reached without the help of specialized equipment.
The DJI Mini 2 is the official successor of the DJI Mavic Mini, which was released by the popular company a year ago. Both models are designed to pack a lot of features while being quite affordable, but the new DJI Mini 2 comes with an assortment of extra tricks that make it a superior choice in comparison to its older brother.
Shooting 4K videos
Mini 2 comes with a 4K@30FPS mode that is a major improvement over the 2.7K@30FPS offered by the Mavic Mini. Mini can also reach a bitrate of 100Mbps, and the combination between a higher resolution and bitrate boosts quite impressive, especially if users aim to record videos for large panels.
Most drone manufacturers use different transmission systems for different drone models, and there can be major differences between affordable and professional models. In the case of the Mini 2, DJI decided to opt for a proprietary system that offers a feed at a range of 6 kilometers in Europe and up to 10 kilometers in the US.
Many photographers love the option to shot RAW photos, as this format allows them to customize a lot of aspects during settings while also providing colors that seem more natural in comparison to JPEG. This treat is offered by the Mini 2, but the drone doesn’t offer a video format equivalent. Those who are interested in such a feature should pick the Mavic Air 2 or Mavic 2 Pro.
Higher price but better performance
While the Mini 2 is more expensive than the Mavic Mini, it also packs upgraded motors that make it easier to maneuver and operate, which is a great perk when strong winds are encountered.
