It was just a week ago when GoPro released their latest drone offering to the market in a compact design called, The Karma. Fast forward today, DJI just released their own version of their very first compact flying camera, which – as they say- is better than ever.
The Mavic promises to capture an ultimate image quality and portability combine in one revolutionary device that will stay with you, whenever you need it to capture that sudden burst of inspiration.
Its compact size hides a high degree of complexity that makes it one of DJI’s most sophisticated flying cameras ever. 24 high-performance computing cores, an all-new transmission system with a 4.3mi (7km) range, 5 vision sensors, and a 4K camera stabilized by a 3-axis mechanical gimbal,are at your command with just a push of your thumb or a tap of your finger.
It has an Active Track that lets you trace the subject, just tell and set the Mavic and let it do the rest. It uses a deep learning, computer vision and advancedautonomous flight strategies to make complex, creative shots as simple as possible with just a tap of your finger.
The Mavic has been trained to detect and recognize a number of common subjects including people, bike riders, vehicles and even animals.Once you have marked your subject, you can fly around them to create a huge variety of shots depending on the mode you are in. Choose from Trace, Profile or Spotlight, to give every scene you shoot that professional touch. As the Mavic is tracking, you can even select exactly where you want them in the frame, for more control over your final shot.
It also boast off a wave signal gesture that lets you snap a photo, and its Tripod Mode drops the Mavic’s maximum speed to just 2.2mph (3.6kph), and the control stick sensitivity of the remote controller is dulled to give you the precision you need for accurate framing. It is also great for flying indoors in small spaces where the Mavic’s normal speed may make it more challenging to fly. (source)
The Mavic Pro retails for $999 as a complete set and $749 if you opt to buy it without the remote control, which makes it cheaper than the new GoPro Karma, which retails for $800 if you buy it without the camera. Still a hefty investment, huh?
