While the end of the year did not bring us a new high end drone from DJI, we did get an announcement of the return of the extremely popular Phantom 4 Pro v2.0. The Phantom 4 Pro set the bar for the high-end consumer market and was dominate in many commercial applications. Featuring a 1" 20 megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor with a mechanical shutter, the Phantom 4 Pro's camera was ideally suited for everything from still photography, to videography, mapping, surveying, and photogrammetry. The mechanical shutter prevented rolling shutter effects with fast-moving subjects or when flying non-stop on mapping missions.
The camera can also record up to 4k video at up to 60 frames per second with footage that is easy to color grade thanks to DJI's D-LOG color profile. With the ability to record in H.265, you retain image quality while reducing the file size needed for the storage.
The Phantom 4 Pro v2.0 improved over the original Phantom 4 Pro with the addition of Occusync 2.0, the Phantom 4 Pro v2.0 has an incredible 7km control range with an improved video downlink signal. As with the original, the Phantom 4 Pro v2.0 features 5 direction obstacle sensing and a sensor range of up to 30 meters.
The Phantom 4 Pro v2.0 is available in two different confiigurations, one with the standard controller, and the Pro Plus with the built-in 5.5 inch CrystalSky display for easy viewing in bright sunlight.
If you have a need for third-party applications for mapping, waypoints, or automated control, the Phantom 4 Pro v2.0 with the standard controller will allow you to use your Android or IOS device with your software of choice.
If you don't need third-party software and only need manual control, or want to use the Intelligent Flight Modes in the DJI GO 4 app, then the Phantom 4 Pro Plus v2.0 would be a great option for you.
The Phantom 4 Pro v2.0 will be available soon for $1,799 and the Phantom 4 Pro Plus v2.0 will be available for $2,199.
