DJI has launched the Mavic Mini, its lightest and smallest drone to date.
The drone features a 12-megapixel, 1/2.3? CMOS sensor with a 24mm f2.8 lens on a 3-axis gimbal. It is also capable of shooting 2720×1530 resolution videos up to 30p, and Full HD clips at up to 60p. It can also shoot photos at 4000×3000 resolution for 3:4 resolution, while 4000×2250 is the largest for widescreen 16:9 frames. All these features are in a drone that the company claims that weighs as much as a normal smartphone would.
Like other DJI drones, the Mini follows navigation set via the Fly More app, or as directed by the user. Pre-programmed flight patterns are in the app, as well as custom ones a user can follow. To add, the drone offers up to 30 minutes of flight time on a single charge with its 2600mAh battery. It’s also both compatible with Android and iOS platforms.
The DJI Mavic Mini is now available in the US with a base price of US$399 (~Php 20,145) with the basic package, or at a pricier US$499 (~PHP 25,195) with added accessories and extras in a Fly More combo. No word yet if the drone will launch in the Philippines in the coming weeks.
