DJI Mavic 2

See the Bigger Picture

Our dream has always been to make a drone that exists where engineering, technology, and the needs of the aerial photographer converge. A drone that embodies all of DJI's advanced, signature technologies, and is able to redefine what is possible for the world of aerial photography. In creating the Mavic 2, we have made this dream come true.

Mavic 2 Pro with Hasselblad camera

Made in Sweden, Hasselblad cameras are renowned for their iconic ergonomic design, uncompromising image quality, and Swedish craftsmanship. Since 1941, Hasselblad cameras have captured some of the world’s most iconic images – including the first moon landing.

Co-engineered in partnership with Hasselblad after two years of tireless research, the Mavic 2 Pro comes equipped with the all-new Hasselblad L1D-20c camera. The L1D-20c possesses Hasselblad’s unique Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS) 6 technology, helping users to capture gorgeous 20-megapixel aerial shots in stunning color detail.

1-inch CMOS Sensor

The brand new 1-inch CMOS sensor has an active sensing area four times more effective than the original Mavic Pro. The large sensor also means better performance in low-light environments with a more extensive ISO range, max ISO lifted from 3200 to 12800.

10-bit Dlog-M Color Profile

The Mavic 2 Pro supports a 10-bit Dlog-M color profile that yields higher dynamic range for more flexibility in the grading room. The system records over 1 billion colors (compared to the 16 million colors from traditional 8-bit color coding technologies) and retains more in-depth details in both highlights and shadows. Now you can capture the subtlest gradations at sunset or sunrise, leaving greater space for post-production.

HDR Video

With 4K 10-bit HDR support, the Mavic 2 Pro can be plugged into a 4K TV with HLG and will immediately play back footage with the right color tones, including brighter highlights and increased contrast that make HDR so appealing.

Adjustable Aperture

The f/2.8-f/11 adjustable aperture delivers outstanding image quality both in high and low light environments. When shooting in low light, set the aperture to f/2.8 to allow more light in and to capture bright and clear photos. When shooting in well-lit environments, set the aperture to f/11 to lower the shutter speed and

Mavic 2 Zoom

Powered by a 1/2.3 inch 12-megapixel sensor with up to four-times zoom, including a two-times optical zoom (24mm – 48mm), 4 the Mavic 2 Zoom is all about dynamic perspectives. Capture everything from wide angle to mid-range shots for even more creative options.

More Expressive Mid-Range Shots

Compared to a 24mm 4 wide angle lens, the 48mm 4 telephoto lens compresses your perspective, enhancing the parallax effect for a classic cinematic look. Now a whole new world of aerial photography is open to explore with even more epic, cinematic shots.

Worry-Free and Convenient Way to Find a View

When shooting Full HD video, 4 × Lossless Zoom (including 2 × optical zoom) gives you a closer view of far-away subjects, making unique scenes more accessible to capture at a distance, helping you maintain an even safer distance from buildings, vehicles, animals, and people.

Quick and Accurate Focus

Hybrid auto-focus on the Mavic 2 Zoom combines phase and contrast detection for higher focus accuracy with an increased focus speed of up to 40% than before. The auto-focus-tracking system makes subjects appear clear and sharp when zooming in and out.

Zoom During Flight

Dolly Zoom is a new QuickShot for the Mavic 2 Zoom, offering an otherworldly perspective in a fully-integrated drone. Dolly Zoom automatically adjusts focus when flying, adding an intense, warping visual effect to your video. When flying manually, you can also set proper focus speed values for even more creative shot options.

48-Megapixel Super Resolution Photos

The Mavic 2 Zoom also has a brand new Super Resolution feature. When taking a picture with a 24 mm equivalent field-of-view, 4, the camera will capture and patch nine photos with its telephoto lens, resulting in a 48-megapixel super resolution photo – an asset when capturing the vivid details your landscape photography deserves.

Camera System Shoot Like A Pro Our new aircraft comes in two new editions: Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom. 5 And both cameras employ DJI's latest 3-axis gimbal technology, ensuring smooth, stable footage in just about any situation.


Say goodbye to complicated post-processing. With Hyperlapse, the aircraft shoots stable aerial shots and processes them automatically, enabling you to create professional-looking timelapses with a simple tap of a button, which you can share to social media immediately.

Save a flight path in Task Library 13 to fly the Mavic 2 through the path whenever you feel like it. JPEG and RAW photos can be simultaneously saved on a Micro SD card or the internal storage, leaving more room for post editing.

Enhanced HDR Photos Icons: Enhanced HDR Photos Mavic 2 Pro 14 EV Mavic 2 Zoom 13 EV

The Mavic 2 also supports enhanced HDR photos, an improved technique that blends a sequence of photos for ghost-free high dynamic range, offering increased image clarity while avoiding unwanted artificial effects.


Brighten up your world with HyperLight, a low-light setting designed to enhance your images while reducing noise significantly.

H.265 Codec for Higher Image Quality

Both editions record 4K video at higher bitrates with advanced H.265 compression 8. Videos in H.265/HEVC codec maintain 50% more information than videos in H.264/AVC, creating high-quality videos with more preserved details.

OcuSync 2.0 Video Transmission System

OcuSync 2.0 digital video transmission performance is greatly enhanced with improvements made to communication distance, video quality and anti-interference, offering you unprecedented control experiences.
