What are the main differences between the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom?
The only difference between both editions is their respective gimbal cameras.
The Mavic 2 Pro comes equipped with the all-new Hasselblad L1D-20c camera. The brand new 1-inch CMOS sensor has an active sensing area four times more effective than the original Mavic Pro. The large sensor also means better performance in low-light environments with a more extensive ISO range, and max ISO lifted from 3200 to 12800.
The Mavic 2 Zoom is all about dynamic pespectives and is powered by a 1/2.3-inch 12-megapixel sensor with up to four-times zoom, including a two-times optical zoom (24-48mm) for more creative aerial photography options.
Compared to the Mavic Pro, how has the Mavic 2 been improved?
The Mavic 2 is an improvement in almost all aspects over the Mavic Pro including camera performance, video transmission, flight time, flight speed, low-noise, omnidirectional obstacle sensing, intelligent functions, and its unique Hyperlapse feature.
Is the Mavic 2 compatible with DJI Goggles series?
Yes. The Mavic 2 is compatible with DJI Goggles (firmware version 01.04.0500 or above) and DJI Goggles RE (firmware version 01.00.0600 or above). Please first activate DJI Goggles or DJI Goggles RE and update their firmware to the latest one on your computer using DJI Assistant 2. Power on DJI Goggles or DJI Goggles RE, choose Linking in Settings, then choose Mavic 2. Press the link button on the Mavic 2 and wait for a few seconds to connect DJI Goggles or DJI Goggles RE to the aircraft. DJI Goggles only support the 2.4 GHz signal frequency, while DJI Goggles RE support 2.4/5.8GHz dual signal frequency for more powerful performance.
Is the Mavic 2 waterproof?
What advantages does the Mavic 2 Pro have when recording video?
The Mavic 2 Pro is capable of recording 3840×2160 10-bit 4K Dlog-M and 4K HDR 10-bit videos at 100Mbps.
What is the focal length of the Mavic 2 Zoom?
The Mavic 2 Zoom’s 24–48 mm optical zoom camera supports shooting at 4x lossless zoom 1080p video.
Why does Dlog-M only feature on the Mavic 2 Pro and not the Mavic 2 Zoom?
Dlog-M is only available on the Mavic 2 Pro because the pro version was designed with the needs of professional photographers in mind, meeting demands for greater color correction capabilities.
On the other hand, the Mavic 2 Zoom has D-Cinelike to realize quick and easy color correction. Along with Dlog-M, D-Cinelike reserves more highlight and color information than any normal color correction mode, leaving more room for post-processing.
What is the difference between Full FOV mode and HQ mode under Mavic 2 Pro’s 4K resolution?
Full FOV down samples from the 5.5K sensor to 4K resolution while HQ crops in the center for finer image quality but less FOV. Full FOV view is 75° and HQ view is 55°. You can select between them according to your actual shooting demands.
Can I adjust the focal length for Dolly Zoom on the Mavic 2 Zoom?
Why are the maximum flight and hovering times different on the Mavic 2?
The Mavic 2’s rotor system is optimized primarily for forward flight. Thanks to its more aerodynamic airframe, the Mavic 2 consumes less power at certain forward flight speeds than when hovering. Therefore, the maximum hovering time is 29 minutes in environments with no wind while the maximum flight time can be up to 31 minutes flying at a constant speed in conditions with no wind.
What is Omnidirectional Obstacle Sensing?
Omnidirectional Obstacle Sensing includes left/right, up/down, and forward/backward obstacle sensing. Sensing for left/right directions is only available in ActiveTrack, POI, QuickShot and Tripod mode.
Note: Omnidirectional Obstacle Sensing does not fully cover the circumference of a 360-degree arc. And the left and right obstacle sensing system only works in specific modes and environments. DJI warranty does not cover any loss caused by crashing when flying left or right, even when ActiveTrack or Tripod mode is activated. Please be aware of your surroundings and App notifications when operating the Mavic 2 to ensure safety.
Does the remote controller support HDMI output?
Can I connect my smartphone to the remote controller using an ordinary USB cable?
You can use an ordinary USB cable to connect your smartphone to the remote controller via the USB port at the bottom of the controller (be sure to pull up the cable at the Micro USB port). This might, however, prove to be slightly inconvenient when flying the aircraft. Cables with different connectors come with the aircraft so you can choose the one most appropriate for you.
What mobile devices does the remote controller support?
Mobile phones that are 6.5–8.5 mm thick and no more than 160 mm long will fit in the remote controller clamps comfortably. We strongly recommend you to remove the protective cover before attaching your mobile phone. For tablets beyond this measurement range, please purchase the DJI Mavic 2 Tablet Holder.
Can I use the Battery Charging Hub to charge four batteries simultaneously?
No. The Battery Charging Hub charges batteries in sequence according to their power levels from high to low, avoiding the hassle of interchanging them while charging. Charging in sequence gives you a fully charged battery in the quickest possible way.
How long does it take to fully charge a battery?
How do I store the batteries when not in use?
It is recommended to fully charge the batteries at least once every three months.
Can I use other apps while updating the DJI GO 4 app?
No. If you do, the update will fail. You will then need to download the firmware and update it again.
What should I do if aircraft and battery firmware versions are inconsistent?
Connect the Mavic 2 to the DJI GO 4 app. The app will then check firmware compatibility automatically. You may upgrade according to the instructions.

Does the Mavic 2’s remote controller support hot swapping while connected to DJI Assistant 2?
No. You need to connect the remote controller with a USB cable and then power on to connect to DJI Assistant 2.
