The DJI Mavic Air offers high-quality yet shake-free aerial shots. The camera records 4K videos at 30 fps. You can also use the 1.2/3- inch CMOS sensor equipped camera for capturing 12 MP still images. The camera also provides vertical, horizontal and 180° panoramas as well as a 360° spherical panoramic view by stitching 25 photos. The enhanced HDR algorithms provide accurate exposure adjustment in the scene as per the lighting condition. The internal memory space can store up to 8 GB of data. With the aerodynamically-designed chassis, the wind drag is reduced to improve the flight speed. The seven onboard cameras have been reinforced with magnesium alloy brackets. The FlightAutonomy 2.0 comprises the primary gimbal camera, directional dual-vision sensors, downward infrared sensing system, IMU redundancies, and a group of computing cores make the drone navigate through difficult terrain. With a fully-charged 2375 mAh Li-Po battery, the DJI Mavic Air provides an operational time of 21 minutes.
Optics and Focus
The 12 MP camera lens offers a 35mm equivalent focal length and has an aperture opening of f/2.8. It can focus on an object from a minimum distance of 50 cm. Thanks to the ActiveTrack feature, you can choose any of the 16 subjects tracked by the camera to keep the focus pinned on them. The ISO range of 100–1600 is automatically adjusted for both photo and video mode. You can manually extend the ISO range for videos up to 3200. The electronic shutter with maximum speed of 1/8000th of a second provides detail in the subject movement and reduces motion blur.
Sensor and Screen
The main front camera uses the 1.2/3- inch CMOS sensor to capture images and videos. A smartphone can be attached to the provided remote control. Its built-in holder can fit smartphones that are 160mm wide and 8.48mm thick. Synchronize the smartphone with the Mavic Air by using the DJI GO 4 app to control the drone and its camera functions.
Image and Video
This DJI drone captures 4K video capture at 30 fps and slow motion Full HD slow-motion videos at 120 fps. The upgraded HDR algorithm sets the exposure value according to the scene lighting to enhance both bright and dark areas in the scene. Along with vertical, horizontal, and 180° panoramas, the Mavic Air produces a 32 MP spherical panorama by attaching 25 pictures in eight seconds. The primary camera offers image capture with a maximum resolution of 4056×2280 dpi in an aspect ratio of 16:9. You can also select one of the four photo capture modes to suit your requirement.
A 3-axis gimbal attached to the camera, which cuts down the angular vibration to 0.005°. Also, it has dampeners to reduce jerks made by the drone rotors. The QuickShot feature comes with 6 different flight paths that add a cinematic touch to the scene. With SmartCapture, you can capture selfies by using hand gestures. The TapFly function works in combination with the DJI GO 4 app in your smartphone to make you navigate the drone by tapping on a particular point of the smartphone screen. The Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems ensures the drone flies through obstacles comfortably. This DJI fly more combo comes with two additional intelligent flight batteries, two pairs of propellers, a battery charging hub, battery to power bank adapter, and travel bag.
The minimum focus distance is the shortest distance at which a lens can focus. In the case of digital SLR cameras, the distance to the subject is measured from the focal plane mark on the camera body, not from the front of the lens.
The types of files that a particular camera produces. All cameras output JPEG images, but some of the more sophisticated models will shoot in RAW mode. RAW Image Formats will vary based on manufacturer.
Refers to the actual physical size of the imaging sensor in the camera. A sensor that has the same dimensions as a 35mm frame of film is considered to be "full" frame. Other smaller sensor sizes are described in terms relative to a "full" sized sensor. (e.g. an APS-C 1.5x crop sensor)
