DJI Mavic 2 Pro vs. Autel Evo camera test!




The Autel Evo and the new DJI Mavic 2 Pro are both portable drones with foldable arms, but only the DJI quadcopter is designed with a 1” sensor and a 20 MP Hasselblad camera. To see how much of a difference the larger sensor makes compared to the Evo’s 12 MP camera and 1/2.3” Sony CMOS sensor, YouTuber Captain Drone shot multiple scenes using auto mode on both drones. Side-by-side footage from the Mavic 2 Pro and the Autel Evo can be seen in this video:


As far as details, both the Mavic 2 Pro and the Evo footage looked similar on YouTube, but the Mavic 2 Pro’s footage showed more vibrant colors. The Mavic 2 Pro’s sensor is a step up compared to the older Mavic models because it is designed to record up to 1 billion colors. The footage that Captain Drone shot displayed the Mavic 2 Pro’s ability to pick up more colors. If the Evo’s sensor is designed like the 1/2.3″ CMOS sensors found on the original Mavic series, then it can record somewhere around 16 million colors.

Dynamic range test

Captain Drone picked an area with a bench to test the two drone’s ability to pick up fine details.

Sunny setting

With abundant lighting, both drones filmed similar looking footage, but the Mavic 2 Pro still captured more color.

Note: Mavic 2 Pro was flown faster than the Evo.
