The best drone with a 4K camera that you can buy right now in India in 2021 is The Dji Mavic Mini 2. It is a lightweight and portable yet powerful drone that can fit in the palm of your hands and comes with a great controller & a better 4K camera sensor than its predecessor, which topped out at 2.5K
Dji has made incremental updates to the Dji Mavic Mini 2, and has improved in many areas where its predecessor, the Dji Mavic Mini, lacked. Let’s find out more about it.
The Mavic Mini 2 has upgraded motors, bumping the max flight speed to 16 meters per second (up from 13 in the original). That extra speed means the Mini 2 can stand up to stronger winds (approx. 29-38kph), with a max altitude of 4,000 meters.
Regarding the camera, as we have told earlier, the Mavic Mini 2 has a larger 4K sensor with incredible color science which results in vivid shots. The images sensor supports 4K/30fps video as well as 12-megapixel images. The camera rests on a 3-Axis motorized gimbal which allows it to have incredible stability during flights resulting in clearer photos and videos.
The drone has a battery of 2250mAh with a flight time of 31 minutes, while the controller has a 5200mAh battery.
Regarding the controller, the controller that you get for the Mavic Mini 2 is the same full-size controller that you get with Dji’s Air series of drones. The controller uses Dji’s proprietary OcuSync 2.0 instead of Wi-Fi to communicate with the drone, which allows for a range of up to 10 kilometres.
The best things about Dji drones are the Dji exclusive features that cannot be found anywhere else, and the Mavic Mini 2 has many of them, if not all the features that you will find on the costlier version of Dji drones. These are:
This drone comes with the QuickShots feature, which lets you set the drone on an automated flight path with different shot modes; Dronie, Circle, Helix, and Rocket, Boomerang with just a few taps, which is a really nice feature to have for beginners.
The panorama mode lets you select from Wide-Angle, 180°, and Sphere panoramas, and the DJI Mini 2 will do the rest, generating a panoramic masterpiece almost instantly.
As the name suggests, this feature lets you zoom in and out of subjects up to 4x times with only minimal loss of quality thanks to the new 4K sensor.
The Mavic Mini 2 works with the Dji Fly App, allowing you to watch the live feed of what the drone is recording at 720p/30fps, as well as edit the footage with a really great set of tools & templates right before importing it to your phone from the drone wirelessly.
Overall, the Dji Mavic Mini 2 is a really great, compact yet powerful drone that comes at a price of around Rs 80,000 which is a lot. However, it is well worth the price for the features it provides. This drone is not aimed towards the normal consumers but, professional photo & videographers who are ready to spend even more for such features.
The Dji Mavic Mini 2 can be bought on Amazon and comes with everything that you will ever need to use this drone, including a carrying bag as well as 2 spare batteries and propellors.
