If you’re looking for the best camera drone for sale, the answer is the DJI Mavic Pro. It is brand new and offers one of the most advanced UAV drone experiences on the market. We managed to get our hands on one of the first retail models just in time for this review. This is a small yet very powerful RC drone with a great camera that features a lot of exciting technology. Let’s take a look under the hood!
When we say that this is a small camera drone, we really mean it. Take it out of the box, and you’ll be surprised that it’s folded up to the size of a bottle of water. This makes the Mavic Pro a great travel companion and a good drone for people on-the-go. The tiny form factor doesn’t mean that DJI skimped on features, though. The Mavic offers a fantastic camera with 4K video at 30fps and 1080P video at 96fps. If you’re looking to take photos, the Mavic takes crisp 12MP images and even supports Adobe DNG RAW. Unlike most other camera drones for sale, the Mavic does not cheat and use Electronic Image Stabilization. Instead, it achieves true 4K video through a small, high-precision three-axis gimbal that eliminates virtually all shaking and vibration. This technology, paired with DJI’s new 28mm focal length lens and professional 1/2.3 inch CMOS image sensor makes for some of the absolute best drone videos and photos we have seen. You have to try this drone and see it for yourself. DJI takes the lead over all other brands with their innovative product.
The Mavic Pro packs a ton of features. You get an insane range of four miles (seven kilometers). The drone also impresses with an excellent flight time of up to 30 minutes. Oh yeah, and this puppy can fly at a ridiculous speed of up to 40MPH! These specs surpass even DJI’s flagship Phantom 4, which is surprising given the Mavic’s compact size. Additionally, the Mavic includes many autonomous flight features. The drone automatically avoids obstacles to reduce accidents significantly. The Mavic Pro is also one of the first drones to offer GPS-assisted precision hovering outdoors as well as vision-based, smart indoor hovering where no GPS is available. Moreover, it includes DJI’s great ActiveTrack which auto-follows people with the press of a button on the free DJI GO app. We also loved the new drone selfie mode: Just wave at the Mavic. It will recognize you and your gesture and snap a picture! There are a ton of other features here which we can’t all cover in this short review. For example, you can add DJI’s Goggles for a high-quality live first-person video experience that makes you fly like a bird! All this adds up to a very fun and future-proof drone.
In short: The DJI Mavic Pro is the best camera drone for sale. Period. It offers cutting-edge smart technology, pro-level photos and videos, and a very fun user experience. One of the top features of this remote control drone is that all this functionality is packed into such a small package. It has everything you’d want from a high-end camera drone and then some. It’s a must have!
