DJI Provides New Mavic Air 2 Release Date and Spec Data Comments Off on DJI Provides New Mavic Air 2 Release Date and Spec Data

DJI announced that the new  Mavic Air 2 will cost $799 when it ships to US buyers in late May. That’s the same price as the previous Mavic Air model, so the drone stays as DJI’s mid-range option between its more capable Mavic 2 and its smaller, cheaper Mavic Mini.

New In Two

Two and a half years after introducing the first Mavic Air, DJI is announcing its successor: the Mavic Air 2. It comes with a bigger image sensor, ditches Wi-Fi in favor of DJI’s own OcuSync transmission technology, has up to 34 minutes of flight time, and is packaged with a completely redesigned controller.

In terms of the design, the new Mavic Air 2 is slightly bigger and heavier than the prior generation, but still looks like a smaller sibling to the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom. All three drones finally share a similar design language — gray housing — and now look more like part of a lineup.

Is Bigger Better?

Compared to its predecessor, the Mavic Air 2 is slightly larger and heavier (570 grams). That’s not a problem at all, because the arms can be quickly folded for easy storage — making it perfect for stowing away in a backpack. Sure, the Mavic Mini can be flown without having to register it with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), but the Mavic Air 2 retains the same portability to make it a weekend road warrior. For comparison, the Mavic Mini measures in at 160 x 202 x 55 mm unfolded, while the Mavic Air 2 isn’t that much bigger at 183 x 253 x 77 mm.

Shutterbugs will be especially happy to find a new 48-megapixel high-resolution mode. Looking at a few comparison shots, there’s more detail and sharpness versus its 12-megapixel captures, but dynamic range isn’t as good. However, some of the details in the shadows can be recovered in post using an editor. There’s definitely a case for using the high-resolution mode, especially if you want to crop images later on. Beyond that, I found the 12-megapixel snapshots perfect for social media posts.

The Mavic Air 2 looks like an impressive update to what was already one of our favorite drones, especially considering several features—the 60 fps 4K video and 34 minute flight time—even best those found on the more expensive Mavic 2 Pro.

DJI To Announce New Action Camera On May 15th Comments Off on DJI To Announce New Action Camera On May 15th

The internet has been ablaze since DJI announced their Unleash Your Other Side event on May 15th.
Not much word or details prior to the announcement had been out regarding what they may be revealing. We’ve scoured the internet and found a wealth of information since then that reveals most of the details of their new Osmo Action Camera

DJI Osmo Action

Action Camera from DJI Spotted in the Wild

A known Twitter source was the first to unveil the Action Cam images and we see that the camera features 8x slow-motion and is potentially capable of recording at 240fps. You can check out the full list of rumoured specs below.


From here we see the Dual LCD display, making the DJI OSMO Action the first of its kind to have a screen on the front in addition to the back. It should all be waterproof considering the box image, announcement image and frankly, for the fact that if it was not water resistant at the very least, then DJI would just be competing against their own Osmo Pocket released not so long ago.


Drone Rumor has received reliable information that the camera will have the following specs

Compared to the Osmo Pocket, the Osmo Action will have a different capturing angle at 145-degrees  and the shutter speed is capable of 1/8000-120s
