Mavic Air 2 is drone that is reimagining aerial creativity and widening the horizons of possibilities regarding videoing.

It’s useful for people from content creators to those who just want to have fun with a drone that is safe, smart, powerful and easy-to-use.

The Mavic Air 2 is the first drone in the Mavic drone to provide creators with 4K video at 60 fps and 120 Mbps. Take the right kind of photo or video suitable for the moment. Make use of 4X Slow Motion in 1080p at 120 fps or 8X Slow Motion in 1080p at 240 fps for all those amazing mid-action shots with the help of a mechanical 3-axis gimbal that keeps the shot stable and smooth.

There are capture option to choose from:

HDR Photos

The Mavic Air 2 drone captures seven different exposures of the same photo and meshing them together to create a highly dynamic range.


The light in this area is poor, so the drone won’t capture anything, right? Wrong. Hyperlight is made for these kinds of situations. Like the HDR feature, Hyperlight captures multiple photos and merges them together to bring out the clearest image possible.

Scene Recognition

The Mavic Air 2 drone is also extremely smart in that it is able to distinguish between different categories of scenes: sunsets, blue skies, grass, snow, and trees. Depending on the scene, the drone will be adjust its setting to make the image pop with colour and detail.


Weighing a mere 570 grams, the Mavic Air 2 has been equipped with new engines, new electronic speed controllers, enhanced battery technology and a slick aerodynamic design to enhance the flying experience. All of this put together makes for a maximum flying time of 34 minutes and a drone that can deliver HD video feed at a maximum distance of 10km.


Not only is the Mavic Air 2 priding itself on its high-quality scene capturing, but it is also an extremely safe drone to fly. If the drone flies to close to an object from the front or the rear, the pilot will be alerted. Additional sensors along with auxiliary lights will ensure a safe and smooth landing even in the lowest lighting.

The Mavic Air 2 is also equipped with a geofencing mechanism that essentially restricts the drone from flying in potentially risky air spaces such as airports. A built-in Advanced Pilot Assistance System helps to navigate autonomously to make flying in complex areas easier and doable.

Also new to this drone is AirSense Technology which alert pilots of other nearby aircraft.

“DJI has an unwavering commitment to enhance drone safety with technology, and Mavic Air 2 implements yet another pioneering safety solution for drone operations,” said DJI Vice President of Policy & Legal Affairs Brendan Schulman


This drone features three different ways of capturing:

Active Track 3.0

Point of Interest 3.0

Set automatic flight paths around a specific subject.

Spotlight 2.0
