DJI Mavic Air: 4K in DJI’s Most Portable Camera Drone Ever

DJI has just announced a brand new drone, the Mavic Air, at an event in New York City. The new drone sits between the foldable Mavic Pro and the ultra-portable Spark and combines some of the best features of both worlds.

The Mavic Air features a camera with a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor, a 24mm f/2.8 (35mm equiv) wide-angle lens, and a 3-axis gimbal. The camera can capture 12-megapixel still photos, 4K footage at 30fps (with a maximum bitrate of 100 Mbps), and Full HD video at 120fps.

The Mavic Air can be folded up like the Mavic Pro yet is 41% lighter than its bigger counterpart (15oz/430g versus 1.62lb/734 g). It’s incredibly compact when folded, taking up less space than the Spark, allowing you to carry it around in a small case within your camera bag or backpack.

“Its folding arms and propellers sit flush against its slender aerodynamic frame, making it so compact that its footprint is nearly the size of a modern smartphone when folded,” DJI says.

Alongside the drone comes a foldable remote control with a screen that displays a 1080p real-time video transmission.

Here’s a short video that provides a tour of the Mavic Air’s sleek design:
