The DJI Mavic 2 Pro is a folding drone which was one of the first to make the quality available from a 1-inch sensor portable and practical. Not only will photographers appreciate the Hasselblad-branded camera, but the airframe has collision sensors in every direction making it a very practical choice

The drone launched alongside another built with the same fuselage but a different camera, the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom, and between them they secure DJI’s position as the makers of the best drones on the market. They also give customers a difficult choice: do you want the 20-megapixel camera or the optical zoom?
