The Mavic 2 Pro is the world’s first drone with an integrated Hasselblad camera, and the Mavic 2 Zoom is the world’s first foldable consumer drone with optical zoom capability. The Mavic 2 has new gimbal-stabilized cameras and advanced intelligent features like Hyperlapse and ActiveTrack.

The Mavic 2 Pro uses a new 20-megapixel camera with  1-inch CMOS sensor with a 10-bit Dlog-M color profile that is co-engineered in partnership with Hasselblad making use of unique Hasselblad Natural Color Solution (HNCS) technology for a superior light and color performance and provide maximum flexibility for photo and video editing. It has an adjustable aperture from f/2.8-f/11 and 4K 10-bit HDR support.

The Mavic 2 Zoom as a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor with two-times optical zoom (24-48mm) to simulate a 96mm telephoto lens that captures lossless video in full HD resolution. Hybrid auto-focus combines phase and contrast detection for higher focus accuracy with an increased focus speed of up to 40% faster. Optical zoom automatically captures and stitches nine photos together for a highly detailed 48-megapixel image.
