DJI Phantom 4 vs Phantom 4 Advanced COMPARISON

The constantly evolving aerial drones from DJI saw the release of their two new performers, the DJI Phantom 4 Pro and the Phantom 4 Advanced. Both these drones have seen a new set of upgrades that are set to take the drone world by storm. While the Phantom 4 already exceeded expectations for most drone enthusiasts with its flamboyant performance and excellence in aerial imagery, the newer models have elevated the performance levels to far greater heights.

DJI Phantom 4 Advanced 4K Camera

4K Camera:

The Phantom 4 was rated as the smartest flying drone from DJI with its 4K UHD camera mounted on a sophisticated 3-axis gimbal system. The Phantom 4 Advanced has evolved into a thoroughbred with its larger and more powerful 1 inch image sensor. This powerful image sensor is much larger compared to its predecessor and is able to capture first-class aerial imagery in all its glory. The larger sensor has a megapixel upgrade to 20 million pixels that performs better in low light and is able to keep the noise levels much lower too. The mechanical shutter used in this camera eliminates the distortion that is found on most drone cameras. The video recording capabilities have also been enhanced to 4K @ 60fps with a 100mbps bitrate. This is a staggering performance increase, considering the size of the camera and the captivating results that is capable of.

Powerful Battery and Longer Range:

The battery capacity has now been boosted to 5870mAh. This means a longer flight time of up to 30 minutes which was previously 27 minutes. Significant improvements in the Lightbridge technology has seen the operational range of the Phantom 4 Advanced to 4.3 miles, which was previously just 3 miles on the Phantom 4. This opens up a new realm of possibilities for drone enthusiasts who can now stay ahead in their professional performance.

Sensor Improvements:

The DJI’s Phantom 4 Advanced is now fitted with an additional set of high resolution sensors on the rear of the aircraft. These two sensors are combined to sync with the forward-facing sensors and the infra-red sensing systems on either sides to provide unparalleled levels of obstacle detection and avoidance. The obstacle sensing capabilities have been increased to 5 directions, while the obstacle avoidance is set to 4 directions. The enhanced protection levels are much welcomed by drone enthusiasts who can now fly their drones with a much relaxed peace of mind and still get the job done.

Remote Controller:

One of the key improvements that you might notice on the Phantom 4 Advanced is the new built-in 5.5 inch Full HD display device with 1000 cd/m2 mounted on the remote controller. This is powered by Android along with 4GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM. This ensures the pilot to stay ahead of the pack with brilliant display from the primary camera at all times, even in bright daylight conditions.

You might wonder if an upgrade is required for your Phantom 4 drone and you are most certainly right about that. With these new set of features, the Phantom 4 Advanced beckons the need of an upgrade to stay ahead of your competition and excel in your professional aerial imagery excellence.
