Common features of both drones
The flight characteristics of both the Mavic 2 Pro and the Mavic 2 Zoom do not differ. These quadcopters are capable of flying at a speed of 72 km/h. The flight time on one battery is approximately 31 minutes. At the same time, video shooting with their help is carried out in 4K format. The shooting speed is 100 Mbps.
Both devices are equipped with functions that are very similar to each other. An example is ActiveTrack 2.0, as well as Hyperlapse. If you look back at the Mavic Pro model after the release of these quadcopters, it becomes extremely clear that these two developments are vastly superior.
Differences between Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom
The first device is different from the other, it differs from the camera installed on board. At 907g, the Mavic 2 Pro is only 2g more than its competitor. Matrix — from 20 megapixels. At the same time, there is no optical zoom, “Vertigo Effect” and “Super Resolution” (SuperRes). The model is able to distinguish 1,000,000,000 colors, shoot video and take photos in HDR. The indicator of the last mentioned function is declared at 14 EV. The ISO range ranges from 100–12800.
Mavic 2 Zoom, in turn, is provided by a device with a camera equipped with 2x optical zoom, 16,000,000 colors, an ISO range of 100–3,200, Vertigo Effect, Super Resolution and 12 MP. Of its negative sides, one can note the lack of the ability to shoot video in HDR, but you can take photos using this technology (the figure will be 13 EV).

The uniqueness of magnifying lenses
The Mavic 2 Zoom quadcopter was released with a 1/2.3‑inch sensor. Do not be disappointed about the model’s weak zoom, because the focal length of its lens, which is equal to 24 mm, as well as 48 mm, will make you close your eyes to this minor flaw.
The ability to take pictures is implemented in such a way that you can choose the viewing angle, which is quite a good addition to excellent photographs of objects that are far away. This will allow you to experience all the “magic” of the picture, which is sure to please everyone who takes advantage of the photography provided by the camera of the Mavie 2 Zoom quadcopter.
This model is subject to lossless zoom (4x) when shooting video in Full HD.
Now pay attention to the difference in focal length. It is provided between 24mm and 48mm.
The footage can be printed by you. The size of the pictures will be 30x20 inches.
The Unprecedented “Vertigo Effect”
The features found on both cameras have been greatly improved, but the Mavic 2 Zoom variant has the advantage of the Vertigo Effect, also known as Dolby Zoom. The essence of this effect lies in the fact that the object in the foreground remains as it is, but at the same time the background is able to narrow or expand.
Beautiful photos thanks to SuperRes
The function is new and given to the camera of the Mavic 2 Zoom quadcopter. The process consists of creating photos in the amount of 9 pieces. and their combination in a photo, 48 megapixels in size. The original size is 24 mm, and the equivalent is 5. The telephoto lens helps to ensure that the photos are unusually clear.
Only Mavic 2 Pro has these features
Sensor in 1 inch Hasselblad camera
The camera shoots at 20 megapixels — excellent. This would not have been possible if Hasselblad had not agreed to cooperate. The attention to detail during the shooting was taken extremely seriously: now it is noticeable in every little thing that is present both during and after the shooting of the material. The 28mm lens really works wonders.
The combination of a variable iris sensor opens up new horizons of possibilities: it’s time to forget about poor lighting in rooms and noise. The level of the latter on the camera of the Mavic 2 Pro is very low during revolutionary accurate color reproduction.
Dlog‑M (10-bit color profile) and HNCS technology
HNCS (Hasselblad Natural Color Solution) is specific to the Pro model. Thanks to this technology, the quadcopter is able to create photos in natural colors. The color palette for photos and videos is very extensive — thanks to the Dlog‑M function, which is capable of supporting a 10-bit color profile.
HDR video format
Based on the above specifications, the quadcopter connects to 4K HLG. There is no need to process what the camera shoots, as it can eliminate unwanted contrasts that occur in certain areas and “overexposure”.

HDR photography: there is no limit to perfection
Mavic 2 Pro, due to the presence of 14 stops (the Zoom option has 13), shoots sharper images. It also surpasses its competitor in terms of color range. But in general, the two models will easily capture the necessary, despite the fact that some areas of the photo at specific moments will not be fully sustained. These zones are restored by processing, after which more details will be revealed.
The photo below shows the difference between shooting the 13th and 14th stops.
Which of the quadrocopters is still worthy to be thrown out?
It should be said here that Pro is designed for shooting realistic photos, while Zoom is for those who need to shoot video in zoom, with instant focus and the latest effects.
