The new f/2.8 camera, on a 3-axis mechanical gimbal, can capture 5.4K video at 30fps or 4K at 60fps. The bit-rate has been boosted to 150Mbps, 30Mbps more than the predecessor and 50 more than the Mavic 2 Pro (opens in new tab). While the Air 2’s half-inch sensor is good in low light, it is effectively 12 megapixels (a Quad-Bayer 48 MP, with each pixel just 0.8μm). The Air 2S’s new sensor has larger 2.4μm pixels. 

Flight time is 31-minutes, three minutes less than the Air 2, but at 595g this newer drone and camera are 25g heavier. At 180 x 97 x 74mm, the dimensions of the Air 2 and new Air 2S are identical, though the nose and upper casing are new moldings. The maximum speed remains 19 m/s too, though intriguingly the normal mode has been accelerated to 15 m/s.

The updated “Advanced Pilot Avoidance System”(APAS) 4, and take advantage of all four sensors at the front, upward and forward-facing, thanks to the angle of the fuselage during forward flight. DJI say the Air 2S is suitable for sparse woods and other narrow environments, and the system can either plot avoidance routes or simply stop-and-hover, making this the perfect drone for anyone looking to take their aerial photography or cinematics to the next level.
