The DJI Phantom 4 Advanced Quadcopter is an advanced gadget for professional filmmakers. It is equipped with a camera that can capture 4K videos at a smooth 60 fps. The camera comes with a 1-inch 20 MP CMOS sensor. The FlightAutonomy system in the quadcopter includes five vision sensors that help it stay on course while avoiding obstacles. This quadcopter comes with a remote controller with mobile holder. The Lightbridge HD video-transmission system in the remote controller lets you live stream 720p videos. Through the DJI GO 4 mobile app, you may use your mobile device along with the remote controller to stream, edit, and share shots in real time. Moreover, the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced is engineered with five intelligent flight modes.
Optics and Focus
The DJI Phantom 4 Advanced Quadcopter comes with a camera that has a 24mm f/2.8 lens offering an 84° field of view. The lens is custom-engineered with eight elements in seven groups. The electronic shutter speed stands at 1/8000th of a second and the ISO sensitivity range at 100–12,800.
Sensor and Screen
The DJI Phantom 4 Advanced’s camera is equipped with a 1-inch 20 MP CMOS sensor, which is four times bigger than the Phantom 4’s 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor. The former’s large signal-to-noise ratio and enhanced low-light shooting ability ensure clear picture quality without noise, especially during night shoots.
Image and Video
The camera on the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced shoots 4K videos at 60 fps in the H.265 format. Additionally, there is the option of recording in the D-log mode, which captures the color data that is needed in the post-production stage. The camera can capture images in an impressive 5472×3078 resolution and also enables burst shooting at 14 fps. The remote controller that comes along with the quadcopter has a Lightbridge HD video-transmission system that facilitates live viewing of scenes in 720p. Moreover, with the help of the DJI GO 4 mobile app, you may use a mobile device on the remote controller to stream videos, edit, and share images.
The FlightAutonomy system in the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced Quadcopter includes five vision sensors that provide two-directional obstacle sensing and forward-vision obstacle avoidance. Further, the dual-band satellite GPS and GLONASS positioning helps the quadcopter navigate itself on terrains where the connection can get disrupted. The dual-forward vision helps the quadcopter see obstacles up to a range of 30 m and detour when there are obstacles in the range of 15 m. The five flight modes—Draw, ActiveTrack, TapFly, Return to Home, and Gesture—are helpful for piloting the quadcopter, making it return to the point where it took off from, and automatically clicking pictures on reading certain gestures. On a single charge of the inbuilt 5,870 mAh LiPo battery, this quadcopter can fly for 30 minutes straight. The battery-indication system displays the remaining battery time and flight time. Additionally, the battery prevents overcharge and over-discharge to keep itself functional.
