DJI unveiled its new portable drone called DJI Air 2S, which features a larger camera sensor, for better quality photos and videos. The new drone also has post-flight software, which promises to speed up the work of editing videos, where the drone plans its flight path and automatically switches between image capture modes.
DJI Air 2S Features
Featuring a 1-inch sensor, capable of producing static 20-megapixel images or videos with 5.4K quality, the DJI Air S2 is a true wonder of home drones, mainly due to the MasterShots software, which offers a series of features so that the drone produces videos edited by itself, with takes that alternate between Proximity, Portrait, and Landscape recording modes.
The application allows you to choose one of the several themes it offers, to deliver you a video edited according to your choice. Other tools include FocusTrack, where you can detach an object and let the Air 2S fly autonomously around it, keeping it framed or flying freely while keeping the object centered. Another interesting tool is the QuickShots and Hyperlapse standards.
The camera can record at 5.4K at 30fps or 4K at 60fps and 150Mbps. The new digital zoom supports a 4X zoom at 4K 30fps, 6X at 2.7K 30fps, 4X at 2.7K 60fps, 6X at 1080P 60fps or 8X at 1080P 30fps. It is mounted on a three-axis cardan to keep recording smoother and has the option to capture images in H.264 or H.265, in addition to the Normal (8 bit), D-Log (10 bit), and color profiles HLG (10 bit).
For still images, the new SmartPhoto mode uses automatic scene analysis to switch between HDR, Hyperlight, and Scene Recognition modes, based on what will produce the best result. The 8GB internal memory is also included for images and videos.
As for the flight, the battery offers an autonomy of up to 31 minutes of flight. The DJI Air 2S has 4 antennas with transmission by the OcuSync system, O3 for up to a distance of 12 kilometers, and greater resistance in environments with radiodensity. The drone has four other sensors, front, rear, top, bottom, and obstacles, promising to spot obstacles more easily.
