DJI Mavic 2 Zoom – 10 things you need to know!




Auto focus

Mavic 2 series are designed to auto focus using a hybrid auto focus system, which is about 40% better than the original Mavic. Even though the Mavic 2 Pro has a better sensor, Kinotika found the Mavic 2 Zoom was better at auto focusing.


Similar to a timelapse but with a moving camera, the Mavic 2 Zoom is built to easily record and process hyperlapse videos. When coupled with repeat task mode, Kinotika found that the Mavic 2 Zoom could shoot a beginning-to-end-of-day hyperlapse since it could be programmed to fly back to a set position every hour.

Four flight modes can be used to determine how the Mavic 2 Zoom flies while recording a hyperlapse.


The new propellers and improved motors are designed to be quieter than the original Mavic.

“The previous Mavic sounded like a giant swarm of bees,” said Kinotika’s Dave Altizer. “Now it sounds like a swarm of mosquitoes.”

Slow motion

The Mavic 2 series is limited to 4K videos at 30 fps, but 2.7K in 60 fps could be used in post for editing slow motion videos.

If even smoother slow-motion is required, 1080P at 120 fps can be used.

Weird SD slot

Altizer found the MicroSD slot on the bottom of the Mavic 2 series confusing since there are two identical protective covers that are unlabeled, so he ended up using a Sharpie to mark where the MicroSD slot is.

We Talk UAV also reviewed and crash tested the new Mavic 2 series.
