News broke early this week about a new and exciting partnership between drone giant, DJI, and Microsoft. Now the company has announced a new “ideal choice” for both consumers and professionals in search of a reliable and powerful imaging solution that caters to diverse needs and operations, the new Phantom 4 Pro / Pro+ V2.0.
The Phantom 4 Pro/Pro+ V2.0 retains all the features of the original Phantom 4 Pro. This includes 30- minute max flight time, 7km max transmission range1, 5 directions of obstacle sensing, Burst Mode stills at 14fps, and a 1” CMOS Sensor that records 4K 60 fps video. The new Phantom 4 Pro v2.0 also features an OcuSync HD transmission system, which supports automatic dual-frequency band swiping and connects to DJI Goggles wirelessly.
The onboard camera has been redesigned to use a 1” 20mp CMOS sensor. A custom engineered lens made up of eight elements is arranged in seven groups, it is the first DJO camera to use a mechanical shutter, eliminating rolling shutter distortion which can occur when taking images of fast-moving subjects or when flying at high speed. In effect, it is as powerful as many traditional ground cameras. More powerful video processing supports H.246 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps, both with a 100mpbs bitrate. Advanced sensors and processors ensure everything is captured with more image detail and the image data needed for advanced post-production.
Sensor size is more important to image quality that the number of pixels because a larger sensor captures more information in every pixel, improving dynamic range, signal-to-noise ration, and low light performance. The 1” 20mp CMOS sensor in the Phantom 4 Pro v.20 is almost four times the size of the Phantom 4’s 1/2.3” sensor. It uses larger pixels and has a maximum ISO of 12800 as well as increase contrast. It is good enough for images to be used immediately, while also capturing enough detail for advanced post-processing.
An enhanced video processing system allows video to be captured in cinema and production optimized DCI 4L/60fps at a bitrate of 100Mbps, enabling you to get high-resolution slow-motion shots. The Phantom 4 Pro v2. also supports H.265 video codec (Maximum resolution 4K/30fps). For a given bitrate, H.265 doubles the amount of image processing as H.264, resulting in significantly enhances image quality. Record in the high dynamic range D-log mode to make the most of this image data for color grading.
The resolution and contrast of a lens are critical to image quality, because only a quality lens captures sharp, vivid photos at high resolutions. The brand new Phantom 4 Pro v2.0 camera has an aerial optimized f/2.8 wide-angle lens with a 24mm equivalent focal length. It features eight elements – 2 aspherical – arranged in seven groups that fit into a smaller, more compact frame. Its images are consistently detailed with low distortion and low dispersion, ensuring that photos and videos are sharp and vivid. For the first even with DJO camera, MTF results have been made public, so people can get a better understanding of lens performance.
