Unveiled today, the DJI Air 2S is much more than update to one of the best bcamera drones around. The new Air 2S brings a 20 megapixel 1-inch sensor to the sub-600g frame for the first time, offering creators high-end performance on an agile (and portable) drone. 

The camera specifications haven’t been seen in a drone this small before, but aren’t the only spec bump over its immediate predecessor the DJI Mavic Air 2, which was launched in April 2020.
