DJI Mavic Air Review

DJI Mavic Air

On January 23, 2018, the next chapter in the DJI Mavic series of drones was reveled in the DJI Mavic Air. It is the 3rd Mavic drone from the drone experts at DJI. This powerful aircraft packs one hell of a punch, with a 4K camera, 21-minute flight time, 3-directional environmental sensing and brand new camera features. The Mavic Air represents a striking step forward in the marrying of form and function that fans of DJI have come to know and love. 

Join us as we evaluate all of the great elements of this drone and pick apart its strengths, weaknesses, and everything else significant about it.

Camera

There are so many aspects of this drone that beg to be discussed, and the onboard camera is a great place to begin. This aircraft is the most portable DJI drone to house a 3-axis mechanical gimbal, and does so with an angular vibration range of 0.005°. Gimbal dampeners help create even steadier shots, arrayed in a triangular formation. Snap 12 MP photos and shoot 4K video at 30 fps with the camera, recording at 100 Mbps to capture every second with UHD quality.  85° field of view means you can capture the world around you like never before.

Camera Functions

Additionally, there are some exciting new camera functions, which join old camera options DJI fans have come to know through the Spark and its predecessors. Snap some truly breathtaking pictures with Horizontal, Vertical, and 180° panoramas. The phenomenal software on the Mavic Air allows it to stitch 25 photos together in a brisk 8 seconds to form crystal-clear 32 MP Sphere panoramas. Plus, pilots can truly immerse themselves in their works of art thanks to DJI Goggles. 

Slow motion video is now achieveable, with support for recording 1080p 120 fps slow-motion video that creates a truly dynamic perspective. 

Quick Shots

Choose from 6 different QuickShots - Rocket, Dronie, Circle, Helix, Asteroid, and Boomerang. Each is a tap away, allowing you to record epic selfie drone videos without taking the time to compose each shot individually. Boomerang (seen below), circles the subject to show the expansive world around them. 

Asteroid (shown below), provides a dramatic angle on the world, coupling video and a spherical photo for a dramatic experience unlike any other. 

 

 

Foldable Controller

DJI Mavic Air Remote Controlller

The DJI Mavic Air can be flown in multiple ways: through the dedicated controller, your smartphone, or both together. Mavic Air pilots will appreciate the foldable controller, which is low-profile and uses an ergonomic design that holds a smartphone for maximum convenience. Plus, detachable control sticks store inside the remote controller to pack more comfortably on the go. It's an innovation that regular drone users can appreciate, affording them an uber compact controller that is ready for transport in seconds.
