DJI unveils the Mavic Air 2 - 4K60p & 8K hyperlapse

Recommended Posts

How do the Mavic Airs handle wind compared to the Mavic Pro sized drones? I just recently sold my Mavic Pro and was planning on picking up the Mavic Pro II but may go this route. Thanks for any insights.

I recently bought the Mavic Mini mainly because is it "legal" pretty much anywhere and my needs don't necessarily require 4K.  There is certainly a significant difference in the features of the new Air 2 and it and I may consider adding the Air 2. So along with buying the drone came the purchase of an iPad mini 5 and subsequent bracket to hold it in the remote controller.  My question is that I found flying the Mini with my iPhone difficult especially in sunny conditions thus the iPad, will the new remote take an iPad mini without the bracket?

preordered mine via DJI the next morning after it was released, I'll let you know when it shows up. Sure would be cool if a drone delivered it.

Pulled the pin on this drone a couple of days ago-- a lot of bang for your buck with this drone. I love it.

Brian Murphy...

I realize that this is probably too late to be helpful to you, but you never know...

The phone holder on the air 2 isn't much larger than the one on the controller for the mini.  The phone sits above the controller rather than below.  My tablet adapter fits both controllers with no issue.

Mavic Air 2 is an awesome drone for the $$

    • Hi Nezih its a nice review of Ergorig as Run& Gun has mention that the current version of Ergorig is not having  the roll adjustment for the top plate, is very sad. as this option of roll adjustment will definitely helps the operator to balance the camera accordingly. why at the first place they took out this roll adjustment? now if anyone wants the old model of ERGORIG with roll adjustment how to get it. one more thing when the camera is resting on your shoulder what ever vibration due to operations( like running on a rough patch) are taken care by the shoulder, i mean shoulder acts as cushioning and counters the vibration to some extent. but here the camera is resting on a metal part where the body vibrations are directly transferred to camera . what's your say on this? thank you
    • Hannes Farima, I use My F3 with an Atomos Samurai, via SDI, and it works very well. Which recorder did you use? /Nicklas
    • Yeah its an interview / general lighting style I like and learnt ,as an assistant , from a guy who has now been Oscar nominated .. Barry Ackroyd BSC..  less is more as he says .. Europe has embraced this more natural style alot earlier than the US.. I would often get some push back from US directors who wanted back lights, fill lights,  hair lights , eye lights and lights under the chin..  !!  everywhere .. and it seems when I look at the forums on line ,the US still is generally using so many lights for a simple HS shot .. but the more "natural" look has at last taken off as it seems every Netflix doc is now done like this ..  with the larger sensor ,I have fx9 and shoot FF , interviews F1.8 or 2.8 ish .. there is often no longer any need to light up the BG much either ..
    • Gotcha.  Yeah, the V1 PSU/Ballast set-up is super janky. You sound like a man after my own heart.  I've always been a "no-fill" guy.  I like shadows in the right places.  One of the long running, very popular doc series I used to shoot for was a single light on the subject.  No hair or edge and no fill.  Just the key.  But we lit the HELL out of the background.  I can just imagine if we were shooting that same series today, instead of ~20+ years ago.
