DJI is a leading provider in the drones market, with over 50% market share. DJI released 2 second-generation versions of their drone (DJI Mavic 2 Pro and DJI Mavic Zoom), rather than the usual 1 that most people would have expected. So, yes, there’s been a buzz about them! Not only are there 2 drone models to choose from, but they both have their unique characteristics. And while we’re not reviewing the original Pro, we will say that the Pro 2 has improvements in camera abilities, flight time, speed, and more.

DJI Mavic 2 Pro vs. Mavic 2 Zoom: Similar or Different?
The answer: both! There are similarities and differences. Let’s start with what they have in common. Both DJI Mavic 2 quadcopters are elegant in design.
They have the same flight time of 31 minutes and the same dimensions (folded and unfolded). For specs, they weigh about the same; the second-generation Pro is 907 grams while the Zoom is 905. They are also both easy to fly, thanks to the intuitive design. Use via the dedicated remote controller or with a smartphone using the DJI Go 4 App. With that said, we recommend always reading the included manuals before using.
Price-wise, the Mavic 2 Pro is slightly more expensive than the Mavic 2 Zoom. The answer to “why” is its advanced camera. A professional photographer will appreciate the features, which we detail below. Also, the second-generation DJI Pro drone offers excellent value with Intelligent Flight Modes and operates using low-noise technology.
We might mistake one for the other if not for the different cameras within each model. The difference in their gimbal cameras is what really sets them apart.

Differences between the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom Cameras
By now you’re likely wondering how the Zoom camera compares. While they’re both great quality, we see them as meeting different needs. The Pro 2nd Gen offers value for its leading technology from Hasselblad and great features, such as the big sensor, that a professional photographer would appreciate.
The Mavic 2 Zoom’s sensor isn’t as large at 12 megapixels but what it has that the Pro doesn’t is an optical zoom. For someone looking for more dynamic shots, the Zoom Drone might be favored over the Pro. Perhaps you want a wide shot one day and then a unique angle the next day. Plus, being able to zoom in and out is handy if you can’t get close access to the scene, like if it is unsafe. The Zoom also has Full HD video. As for which drone is best for you, it all depends on your needs.
Shared Features of Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom Cameras
DJI offers a Hyperlapse mode for both Mavic 2 models. Hyperlapse refers to setting the path you want the flying machine to go and then set the device to take photos at specific points along this route. After that finishes, put the photos together for a time-lapse video that you can share with family and friends or put on social media.
In addition to Hyperlapse We might mistake one for the other if not for the different cameras within each model. The difference in their gimbal cameras is what really sets them apart.
The other intelligent flight modes that both DJI Mavic 2 models have are QuickShots, ActiveTrack 2.0, Cinematic, POI 2.0 or Points of Interest, TapFly, and Waypoint Navigation.

What to Expect When Using Mavic 2 Pro Drone Camera
The name Hasselblad is impressive. This iconic Swedish brand offers amazing technology with great attention to detail, as a professional photographer would likely tell you. The Hasselblad L1D-20c camera on the Mavic 2 Pro Drone camera makes it a standout within a growing market. It uses Hasselblad Natural Color Solution for amazing color quality. The result is impressive crisp and clear 20-megapixel ariel photographs.
Also unique about the Mavic Pro 2 Quadcopter is its large sensor. Equipped with a 1-inch CMOS sensor, it is capable of taking excellent shots even in low-light conditions, such as at dawn or dusk. These times of the day can be difficult to capture but are now much easier with this DJI drone so you won’t have the frustration of fuzzy pics. The dynamic range per pixel is also notable.
Plus, the Pro 2 has a 10-bit Dlog-M color profile. What does this mouthful mean? Simply hook it up to a 4K television with HLG, and it will play the footage taken with optimal color tones. It can adjust for contrast or brighten as needed. Lastly, the lens is f/2.8-f/16, so it can adjust with the different lights.
A Final Note on DJI Mavic 2 Pro Drone Review
DJI brings two Mavic 2 Drone models to the table: the Pro and the Zoom. They share many great features, including an attractive appearance and portable design, as well as intelligent flight modes. The big thing that differentiates them is the camera, with the Mavic 2 Pro offering the latest technology for excellent color and detail in a wide range of situations, while Mavic 2 Zoom brings the ability to focus in on your subject. We rate the DJI Mavic 2 Pro as a high-value drone worthy of a few more dollars.
