What’s the main difference between Mavic and Phantom 4?
The Mavic is smaller, lighter, and easier to carry with you thanks to its foldable design. Its new OcuSync transmission system has a longer transmission range and 1080p resolution. Due to its larger size, the Phantom 4 has a higher maximum speed and can withstand stronger winds.
Does the folding mechanism wear out and will it need replacing?
The folding mechanism has been tested to last at least 5000 folds. It is unlikely that it will wear out during the Mavic’s lifetime.
What’s difference of camera between Mavic and Phantom 4?
The two cameras have the same features, but the Mavic’s camera has a smaller FOV, is able to focus as closely as 0.5m and can be rotated 90° for portrait shots and selfies. The Phantom 4’s larger FOV makes it better suited for landscape imaging.
Is the Mavic Pro waterproof?
No. As the Mavic chassis is low to the ground, only take off and land in suitable areas that are flat and free of puddles.
How do you enable auto focus on the Mavic Pro camera?
Focus is essential to capturing sharp images. To enable auto focus: 1. Tap the screen in the DJI GO app camera interface. 2. Long tap the screen to enable auto focus when using ActiveTrack, TapFly and Gesture modes. (This function needs to be enabled in General Settings) 3. Focus at the center by pressing a customizable button. C1 is set by default and can be used during normal flight or while using Intelligent Flight Modes.
When shooting in manual focus mode, my shots are blurred even when moving the slider all the way to infinite focus. Why?
The focus range of the Mavic is 0.5m to infinite. Slide along the bar until you reach a focus point. Sliding straight to infinite focus does not guarantee sharp focus.
Can I zoom during shooting?
The Mavic Pro supports a 2x digital zoom, but does not support optical zoom. You can zoom in or out by draging on the screen or by pressing the customizable buttons.
How to enter Portrait mode?
Slide to the left on the screen and tap the a Portrait/Landscape icon, or by pressing customizable buttons.
REMOTE CONTROLLER & WI-FI
What is the difference between using the remote controller to control the Mavic, and using your smartphone to control it via Wi-Fi?
The Mavic remote controller uses DJI’s OcuSync transmission technology, giving it an increased range of up to 4.3mi (7km) in open areas without interference, FCC compliant. When using a smartphone connected via Wi-Fi, the controllable range is 80m, and maximum altitude is 50m, making it suitable for short-range shots like selfies and for setting up ActiveTrack. You can also download photos and videos directly from the Mavic to your mobile device via Wi-Fi. By sliding the Control Mode switch on the right hand side of the aircraft, you can choose easily between Wi-FI and RC mode depending on which transmission type you need.
