DJI Mavic 2 Pro Drone Leaks With Hasselblad Camera, 31-Minute Flight Time

Back at the start of July, a leak was making the rounds that claimed to show the upcoming DJI Mavic 2. Word was with that leak that the drone might be able to detects obstacles with a 360-degree field of view. The Mavic 2 drone has now turned up in the latest Argos catalog despite not being officially announced by DJI. The catalog calls out two versions of the drone with one of them being the DJI Mavic 2 Pro packing a 1-inch sensor and the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom with an integrated 24-48mm zoom lens, and a "Dolly Zoom" effect.

The description from the Argos catalog calls out some very nice specifications including 1080p video transmission with a transmission distance of up to five miles. The drone can fly at up to 45mph and is compact with a 31-minute max flight time, about four minutes more flight time than the previous version. The catalog does confirm that the drone has omnidirectional obstacle sensing, which will be a huge deal for people using the drone in an area with lots of trees or other obstacles. That omnidirectional obstacle sensing also has APAS and Active Track 2.0 integrated with no description of exactly what those features bring to the party.

The Mavic 2 Pro has a camera with a 1-inch sensor that is manufactured by Hasselblad, meaning you should expect excellent image quality. Speculation with the previous rumor was that the Mavic 2 would have a removable gimbal to allow for customization, but the catalog doesn’t call out that feature.

Many looking for a camera drone won’t care for the way the gimbal puts the camera out front unprotected in the event of a crash. If that omnidirectional sensing feature works well enough that might not be an issue at all. The big mysteries left right now on the Mavic 2 drones are prices and a firm launch date.
