YouTuber AuthenTech compares Parrot ANAFI vs. DJI Mavic Air!




DJI Mavic Air range

The Mavic Air went down the same flight path as the ANAFI, and the YouTuber experienced interference warnings, but the DJI drone flew safely with some video hiccups.

The ANAFI has a 21 MP camera with a 1/2.4’’ CMOS sensor, while the Mavic Air has a 12 MP camera with a 1/2.3’’ CMOS.

Video – 4K 100 Mbps

The video quality is similar on both drones since they are designed to film videos up to 4K at 100 Mbps, but AuthenTech said the ANAFI produced “brighter and crispier footage” in low-light, cloud shots. The Mavic stood out though with its 3-axis gimbal, wider shooting resolutions and slow-motion capability. Even though the ANAFI can tilt 90 degrees up or down, its 2-axis gimbal made some of its footage jittery and shaky, especially when panning.

Parrot ANAFI vs. DJI Mavic Air conclusion

Both drones have their pros and cons. The ANAFI can be charged nearly anywhere thanks to USB-C, but it can take up to 5 hours. The Mavic Air flies faster and proved to have better transmission signal in a high interference area, but it’s about $100 more. The ANAFI is designed with a unique, 90-degree upwards or downwards camera capability, but it can suffer from shaky footage when panning. For their price range, these two drones are the best in their class, but DJI might even top their own drone with a new drone.

Wait for DJI’s new release!

DJI was supposed to reveal a new product on July 18, but they postponed the event. A day after the postponement was made, an alleged DJI Mavic 2 picture leaked, so buyers should wait and see what DJI releases in the next couple of days before seriously considering the ANAFI or Mavic Air.
