DJI has continued to pull ahead of its drone rivals this year and the folding Mavic 2 Pro is its finest flying camera yet, largely thanks to its one-inch sensor and Hasselblad camera.
Its ability to shoot fantastic 4K video at 30fps and excellent 20-megapixel stills would be impressive enough, but the fact that this comes from folding design that slips easily into your backpack makes the Mavic 2 Pro the best drone we’ve seen so far.
Another big reason for the Mavic 2 Pro’s success is its superb flying experience, which offers the best obstacle avoidance we’ve seen in a drone and a Sport Mode that lets it fly at over 40mph.
All of this ensured that the Mavic 2 Pro was one of the few products this year to receive a rare 5/5 maximum score in our review. Our verdict reads: “On their own, improvements like the long battery life, quiet operation, nimble flying, stable transmission and handy safety features make the Mavic 2 Pro a notable upgrade over the original.
“But it’s the new Hasselblad camera and one-inch sensor, which offer the best quality stills and video footage we’ve seen from a drone in this sort of price range, that make it something of a stunner.”
The Mavic 2 Pro is a real technological feat, so we’re happy to award DJI with the Video Product of the Year gong at the Trusted Reviews Awards 2018.
