The latest offering from DJI, the Phantom 4 Pro builds on the success of its predecessor with improved collision detection, imaging capabilities, and flight time, plus a brand-new remote controller. Its FlightAutonomy system puts a pair of sensors on the back of the drone (the Phantom 4 only has them on the front), along with an infrared sensor on either side for 360-degree obstacle avoidance. Boasting a 1-inch 20MP CMOS sensor, the three-axis gimbal-stabilized camera is capable of shooting 4K video at up to 60fps and photo bursts at up to 14fps. Finally, the lighter, more rigid magnesium-alloy chassis improves agility and speed, and the slightly larger battery means you’ll get 30 minutes in the air between charges.
Thanks in part to the U-frame design of the integrated three-axis gimbal, the Phantom 4 Pro offers razor-sharp video. But its eight lens elements—two aspherical—also give it a leg up, reducing distortion and chromatic aberration, and arranged in seven groups to fit the smaller frame. To capture objects moving at high speeds, the Phantom 4 Pro uses a f/2.8 wide-angle lens and a mechanical shutter with a maximum shutter speed of 1/2000 of a second. A few handy new modes complete the package: With the Draw mode, draw a route on the screen and the drone will move in that direction; in the Return to Home mode, the drone will automatically choose the best route depending on environmental conditions; and the Gesture Mode allows you to capture selfies without the remote controller using only a few gestures.
