Air V.S. Pro
DJI Mavic Air is an indisputably awesome drone and beats many other drones on the market, including what was previously considered the leading model- Mavic Pro. Our comparison leading to our conclusion that Mavic Air takes the lead on the market is hinged on various aspects including the size, specs of the camera, obstacle avoidance, flight time and flight range, stabilization, and price point among other areas of comparison. However, in this review, we have the following for your information.
When it comes to camera specs, sensors, and the drone memory, Mavic Air beats its Pro counterpart. Specifically stating, Mavic Air has the capability to pack a 1/2.3” CMOS sensor with the capacity to capture 12MP still images with HDR as well as creating 32MP spherically shaped panorama shots. Mavic Pro’scapability in this particular aspect is lower and does not pack as much as Mavic Air does. This gives Mavic Air increased capacity for obstacle avoidance and thus, the safety of flight while using this drone.
In the area of portability and user-convenience, Mavic Air is inarguably more portable and convenient to carry around. Added to its foldable design and small size, it is easy to combine your wallet, phone and three drones of Mavic Air model in the pockets of your vest and move around without any hassle. The profile of this new drone is further minimized by the removable thumbsticks on the controller. This significantly reduces the size and makes it even smaller, convenient and portable.
Although both drones are able to support the autonomous modes of SmartCapture, enhanced Boomerang and Asteroid features give Mavic Airan advantage over its Pro counterpart. Mavic Air is more capable of moving away and out in the manner of an arc and then returns to its pilot in a circling manner, just like a boomerang. On the other hand, Asteroid feature enables it to fly out in a spherical panorama, features which are less evident in Mavic Pro.
To wrap it up, DJI Mavic Air is the ultimate source of inspiration to all the enthusiasts in the industry of photography and all other users of drones. Looking at its features, some of which remains unsaid, it goes without saying that no other decision can be as sound and as informed as a decision to purchase Mavic Air drone.
