The Phantom series from DJI has offered us some of the best and affordable drones that money can buy. They were the technological marvels that totally changed the world of drone aviation. There are a few major differences that sets apart the new Phantom series. Let us check them out, one by one.
Without a doubt, the camera was the primary target that saw the much needed improvements. While the Phantom 4 used a ½.3 inch sensor camera, the new Phantom 4 Pro saw the arrival of the 1 inch image sensor. The significant size increase resulted in spectacular aerial imagery with increased control over digital noise and low light performance. The increase in megapixels from 12.4 to 20 enabled professionals to capture more image data that can be processed in post-production. The video bitrate was also improved to 100 mbps along with an ISO upgrade to 12,800.
With improvements to the Lightbridge technology used in the Phantom series of drones, the signal range has been improved from 3.1 miles to 4.3 miles. A superior battery has increased the flight time from 27 minutes to 30 minutes aided by improvements to the aerodynamics and the high performance motors.
The Phantom 4 Pro receives a pair of additional high-resolution sensors that have been placed at the rear part of the aircraft. This is paired along with the forward facing sensors and the infra-red sensors on either side to provide ultra-high levels of obstacle sensing and avoidance. This unique technology has created the 5 directional obstacle sensing along with 4 directional obstacle avoidance. While flying indoors, the aerial performance is now upgraded to 100ft from 50ft.
The new range of Phantom drones has been upgraded with smaller yet significant changes that increases the overall performance of the aircraft and its image capturing prowess. If you are thinking to upgrade your Phantom 4 drone to the latest and efficient Phantom 4 Pro drone, simply go for it since keeping up with technology is the best way to see compelling improvements in your professional works.
