Take aerial photography and cinematography to a new level, with the DJI Phantom 4 Pro+ Quadcopter. Its integrated camera features a 1-inch, 20 MP CMOS sensor that enables it to shoot astounding stills, 4K videos at 60 fps, and burst-mode stills at a rate of 14 fps. This quadcopter is made from a solid combination of magnesium alloy and titanium alloy, which makes it durable and lightweight. Its remote control is equipped with a 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen, and includes the dual-signal Lightbridge HD video-transmission system for unhindered transmission over 4.3 mi. You may also switch between 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz control frequencies to cut through interference. Enhancing the user experience of this quadcopter are features like TapFly, Gesture mode, and Draw mode.
Optics and Focus
The camera integrated into the Phantom 4 Pro+ has a focal length of 24 mm, an aperture of f/2.8-11, a viewing field of 84°, and a minimum autofocus distance of 1 m. Its electronic shutter speed ranges from 8 seconds to 1/8,000th of a second, while the ISO varies from 100–6,400 and 100–12,800 for videos and stills, respectively.
Sensor and Screen
The DJI Phantom 4 Pro+ quadcopter's camera is equipped with a 1-inch, 20 MP CMOS sensor for capturing high-quality photos, 4K videos at 60 fps, and burst-mode shots at a 14-fps rate. The 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen, which is integrated into the quadcopter’s remote control, features the TapFly feature that lets you fly the quadcopter in any direction, with just a single tap. This feature offers three modes: TapFly Forward to fly in the selected direction, TapFly Backward to fly in the opposite direction of the tap, and TapFly Free to turn while flying. However, do note that the last mode does not include obstacle avoidance. The Draw feature lets you chart out a route on the screen for the quadcopter to follow, while keeping its altitude locked. This helps during complex shots, as you get to focus only on camera control.
Image and Video
In addition to shooting JPEG and DNG RAW stills at a resolution of up to 5472×3078 pixels, the quadcopter’s camera records breathtaking 4K videos at 60 fps in the MP4 or MOV format. In the burst mode, you can capture frames continuously at a rate of 14 fps.
The Phantom 4 Pro+ from DJI is made from a combination of magnesium alloy and titanium alloy. The quadcopter boasts a FlightAutonomy system that includes dual rear-vision sensors and infrared sensing systems. Together, four-direction obstacle-avoidance and five-direction obstacle-sensing systems protect the quadcopter from hindrances. The Gesture feature uses advanced computer-vision technology for capturing selfies without using the remote control. The quadcopter studies the gestures of the subject, and once the scene is ready, it captures the image after a three-second countdown. The ActiveTrack feature facilitates capturing shots of moving people or objects. Advanced image-recognition algorithms enable the quadcopter to adjust its flight dynamics depending on the subject, and generate smoother shots. The Phantom 4 Pro+ has a Return to Home feature too, with which it selects the best route to return home, depending on the environmental conditions. Lastly, the 5,870 mAh 4S Lithium Polymer Intelligent flight battery provides the quadcopter with up to 30 minutes of flight time on a single charge.
