The new Phantom 4 Pro V2.0
features an OcuSync HD transmission system, which supports automatic
dual-frequency band switching and connects to DJI Goggles RE wirelessly.
Like The Phantom 4 Pro and Advanced, the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is equipped
with a 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor capable of shooting 4K/60fps video
and Burst Mode stills at 14 fps. Plus, its FlightAutonomy system
includes dual rear vision sensors and infrared sensing systems for a
total of 5 directions of obstacle sensing and 4 directions of obstacle
CAMERA WITH 1-INCH 20MP SENSOR
The onboard camera has been
redesigned to use a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. A custom engineered
lens made up of eight elements is arranged in seven groups, it is the
first DJI camera to use a mechanical shutter, eliminating rolling
shutter distortion which can occur when taking images of fast moving
subjects or when flying at high speed. In effect, it is as powerful as
many traditional ground cameras. More powerful video processing supports
H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps, both with a 100Mbps
bitrate. Advanced sensors and processors ensure everything is captured
with more image detail and the image data needed for advanced
The Phantom 4 Pro V2.0's camera system improves upon
everything that made the original Phantom 4 so iconic. Every aspect has
been significantly upgraded, including the sensor size, resolution, and
image processing system, making it the most powerful Phantom to date.
Users can also adjust aperture from f2.8-11 for more versatile imaging.
HIGH RESOLUTION LENS
The resolution and contrast of a
lens is critical to image quality, because only a quality lens can
capture sharp, vivid photos at high resolutions. The brand new Phantom 4
Pro V2.0 camera has an aerial optimized F2.8 wide-angle lens with a
24mm equivalent focal length. It features eight elements – 2 aspherical –
arranged in seven groups that fit into a smaller, more compact frame.
Its images are consistently detailed with low distortion and low
dispersion, ensuring that photos and videos are sharp and vivid. For the
first time ever with a DJI camera, MTF (Modulation Transfer Function)
results have been made public, so people can get a better understanding
of lens performance.
WHAT IS FLIGHTAUTONOMY
FlightAutonomy is an advanced
aerial intelligence and flight automation platform. It is made up of a
complex network of ten component groups including seven cameras —
forward, rearward and downward dual vision sensors and the primary
camera — an infrared sensing system, dual-band satellite positioning
(GPS and GLONASS), two downward facing ultrasonic rangefinders,
redundant IMUs and compasses, and a group of powerful, specialized
The Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 acquires a real-time view of its
environment and information about the height and position of nearby
obstacles to create a 3D map it can locate itself within. The IMU and
compasses collect crucial flight status, speed and direction data, while
redundant IMUs and compasses monitor critical data and rule out
possible errors, dramatically enhancing the reliability of flight.
Fly in any direction visible
on-screen with a simple tap. Tap anywhere on-screen to smoothly adjust
the direction of flight while automatically avoiding obstacles* and tap
the screen again or use control sticks to change direction. A new AR
route function shows the aircraft’s real-time flight direction for
reference as its route is adjusted.
As it can be difficult to control
altitude, course, speed and camera pitch simultaneously using joysticks,
TapFly Free allows a pilot to set the direction of flight, allowing
them to turn the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 or tilt the gimbal as required
without changing the direction of flight. In total, there are now three
TapFly Forward: Tap to fly in the selected direction.
Tap to fly in the opposite direction of the tap, i.e. tap in the bottom
right corner of the screen to fly backward towards the top left.
TapFly Free: Lock the forward direction of the Phantom without locking the camera direction allowing it to turn as it flies.
*Obstacle Avoidance is not available with TapFly Free
The Phantom 4 Pro V2.0
automatically recognizes subjects, follows and captures them as they
move, making it easier to get complex shots. Following fast-moving
objects can be very challenging, but advanced image recognition
algorithms used by the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 allow it to recognize and
track the object while keeping it in frame. This new algorithm also
recognizes more subjects, from people to vehicles to animals, and will
adjust its flight dynamics to match, ensuring smoother shots.
Pilots can now choose between:
Trace: Follow behind or in front of a subject, avoiding obstacles automatically.
Profile: Fly alongside a subject at a variety of angles to get profile shots of the subject..
Spotlight: Keep the camera trained on a subject while the aircraft flies almost anywhere.
Draw is a brand new technology for
waypoint control. Simply draw a route on screen and the Phantom 4 Pro
V2.0 will move in that direction while keeping its altitude locked. This
allows the pilot to focus on camera control and enables more complex
shots. There are two Draw modes that can be used in different scenarios.
Forward: The aircraft follows the route at a constant speed with the camera facing in the direction of flight.
Free: The aircraft only moves along the route when instructed. In this mode, the camera can face in any direction during a flight.
Return To Home
In its upgraded Return to Home
mode, the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 can automatically choose the best route to
return home depending on environmental conditions. It records its route
as it flies, allowing it to return along the same route avoiding
obstacles if the control signal is disconnected.
Based on its altitude at the time
of disconnection, the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is also able to adjust its
flight path to avoid obstacles it has seen during its flight. At
takeoff, the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 will record the scene below and compare
its recording with what it sees as it returns, for more precise landing.
It can also detect the ground to see whether there is suitable spot for
landing. If any obstacles are found, or there is water on the ground,
it will alert the pilot and hover at an appropriate height, helping the
aircraft to land more safely.
Different productions require different flight
characteristics, and the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 offers three modes for
flight: P, A and S. Switching between them allows pilots to get the
control they need, whether they seek smoothness, simplicity, intelligent
navigation or speed. In Position Mode, TapFly, ActiveTrack, obstacle
sensing and positioning features are available. Sport Mode adds extra
agility and higher speed, reaching 45mph (72kph). Atti Mode switches off
satellite stabilization and holds the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0’s altitude. It
is ideal for experienced pilots looking to capture smoother footage.
Tripod Mode, which limits speed to 4mph (7kph) provides precision
control for fine framing and indoor flying. Both the infrared sensing
system and vision sensors are enabled in these modes for a safer flight
