DJI Air 2S: The Ultimate Drone for Photographers
Why We Picked It
The DJI Air 2S is the perfect drone for photographers who want to take stunning aerial shots with its oversized Type 1 sensor. With its 20MP camera, it can capture more detailed stills than any other DJI Mini drone on the market. The Air 2S boasts 5.4K30 and 4K60 video with HDR, flat, or standard profiles, giving photographers more creative freedom in post-processing. The drone also features DJI's robust safety features, including GPS location, obstacle sensors, ADS-B to warn you of nearby manned aircraft, and a 30-minute battery.
Who It's For
The Air 2S is a great drone for photographers who prioritize stills above all else. The Type 1 sensor captures more dynamic range, which means more control for photographers when it comes to exposure and color grading. While video professionals will appreciate the 5.4K resolution and variety of profiles, it may be worth upgrading to the Mavic 3 for more advanced cinematography. Please note that you will need to register this drone with the FAA.
