The popularity of flying a Drone with HD camera capturing capabilities has skyrocketed over the past couple of years! Not only is it used to capture different cinematic moments in amateur and professional settings, but it is also used for work purposes like thermal imaging for reporting and analysis of variations of places and objects. Drones open up a wide variety of possibilities in film making. You no longer have to charter a helicopter, because now the aircraft is in your hands. Great for establishing shots and wide fly over shots which will open up a whole new feel to your next project. We offer a variety of Drone Rentals here at The Lens Depot and they are easy enough for anyone to fly with the DJI Go App that comes with a beginner mode for those just starting out!

Hot off the success of their Phantom and Inspire1 series, DJI has announced a new addition to their drone line, the Mavic Pro. What makes the DJI Mavic Pro Drone so special? It is able to fold down for travel and transport to a mere 7.8" x 3.26" x 3.26" and weighs in at only 1.64lbs. Despite it's size, it can fly at up to 40MPH when in Sport mode, similar to that found in the DJI Phantom 4. The brand new controller is small enough to fit in your pocket and if you don't want to bother with the controller you can completely control the drone with your smartphone using virtual joysticks! Lets take a look at some of the key features this drone has to offer!
True 4K Quality
The Mavic has done away with electronic image stabilization in the camera to give you true 4K image quality! Instead, they have built the smallest 3-axis high, precision gimbal that DJI has ever made. All 3-axis's are equipped with a brushless motor to give you smooth great looking footage without being affected by the movement of the DJI Mavic Pro Drone. The camera featured on the drone is equipped with a 1/2.3 inch sensor with the ability to record DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) at 24fps, UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) at 24, 25, & 30fps, 1080 at 96fps and can take 12mp stills.
Safer & Smarter
The DJI Mavic Pro Drone is a safer and smarter drone. The drone comes equipped with dual IMU Senors which acquire the angle, speed and acceleration of Mavic and dual compasses which provides its ability to navigate. If one sensor goes out the other sensor kicks in ensuring safe and proper flight reliability. The Mavic takes full advantage of collecting data about the environment around it through FlightAutonomy which uses 5 cameras, dual-band satellite positioning (GPS and GLONASS), 2 ultrasonic rangefinders, redundant sensors, and 24 specialized computing cores. This technology examines the 3D space around it and takes photos to create a 3D map to let it know the location of everything surrounding it. Having forward and downward sensors active, the DJI Mavic Pro Drone can fly with complete stability indoors or out. The onboard ultrasonic system also gathers height information to keep the Mavic leveled while flying over changing terrain.
Dynamic Control Options
The DJI Mavic Pro Drone comes with a newly designed touch screen enabled control that is small enough to fit in your pocket. The Mavic utilizes OcuSync transmission system opposed to the commonly used WiFi transmission system. Utilizing the new system gives the Mavic the ability to stream 720p video at a maximum distance of 4.3 miles and 1080p video in short range mode. The new DJI Mavic Pro Drone also has several different flight modes including a new tap to fly mode which enables users to simply tap the screen where you would like the drone to fly without using the joysticks. Not to worry if you forget your controller at home. You can use your smart phone through wifi and still have access to all the great features and fly with on screen virtual joy stick.
The Mavic is essentially a breakthrough drone! Everyone is excited about the power behind this 4K drone. This drone can truly serve the purpose to any beginner looking to try a drone out or the professional looking to take his or her project to the next level!
