Why Consider This:
The Mavic 2 Zoom looks and flies identical to the Mavic 2 Pro, but it trades out the Hasselblad camera in favor of a different camera that can zoom 2 times optically and 2 times digitally (with software that avoids losing detail), for up to 4x usable “lossless” zoom. However, filming with more than 2x zoom will require you to shoot at 1080p instead of 4K. It’s a great choice for aerial photographers and videographers who need to work from a distance, whether they’re shooting a child’s soccer match or wildlife. Like our top pick, it features DJI’s obstacle avoidance and smart-flight mode tech, plus a 31-minute battery life and foldable body.
