A new variant of the DJI Air 2 is available, with which some points on the drone can be polished for a price that is 100 euros higher. The new DJI Air 2S is official and completes the core range of drones under 800 grams from the Chinese specialist. Another new Aeronoef, but one that hides many surprises.
As a reminder: The DJI Air is the model above the popular DJI Mini 2 (below the 250 gram mark and from 459 euros). Its little brother is more accessible but offers less professional image quality and its pilot modes like the famous ActiveTrack 3.0 are not available despite its interest in a consumer drone.
What’s changing on the DJI Air 2S?
Why did DJI want to add an even better version of its drone weighing less than 800 grams? For starters, the brand has integrated a larger sensor (1 inch) to offer pictures in 5.4 K in videos or photos in 20 MP. Then the battery will improve and gain a few minutes of autonomy that cannot be neglected. DJI announces 31 flight minutes.
When the DJI Mini is restricted in flight mode, the DJI Air 2S claims the opposite. It has ActiveTrack 3.0 thanks to its sensors, just like the APAS 4.0 autopilot mode. The brand says the mode it incorporates into its new drone is the most advanced of its entire line. The aircraft can therefore move without any problems and avoid all objects.
OcuSync was introduced in DJI Air 2 and in version 3.0 blocks the path to loss of signal problems. It is not surprising that the DJI Air 2S is also equipped with it and that the range of the drone is even announced at a maximum of 12 kilometers compared to 10 kilometers for the classic model.
Let’s go back to the properties of the camera to see the different profiles. The new 5.4K mode further improves the device’s video rendering and enables recording at 30 frames per second. 4K is there for slow motion with its 60 fps mode. This mode also enables 4-fold digital zoom with 30 fps. For the color level, customers can choose between 8-bit, D-Log (10-bit) and HLG (10-bit) in normal quality.
