The popularity of the Phantom has lead DJI to create the awesome new Phantom 2 Vision.
Now the fascinating thing about this new model is DJI attempt to create a total enjoyable flying experience. This a very strong selling point for consumer level buyers.
A clear change from the previous model is the integrated High Definition Camera. A fantastic addition here with DJI having clearly listened to public outcries for one. The camera itself is a wonderful 14 megapixel bugger that is capable of shooting 1080p video at 30 and 60 frames per second. Its field of view is good and maxes out at 140° with the option of 120° and 90° settings.
Extra features: Multi capture, Continues Capture, RAW and JPEG still images.
Flight time has also been given a major boost with the battery now at 5200mAh, upp from the 22oomAh of the original. This will give you a flight time of about 25mins. The DJI app, which we’ll talk a little bit about later, also remotely controls the camera’s aim this the user being able to tilt it.
Now for the app. The app allows the user to watch real time footage directly from the camera through its Wi-Fi connectivity. The combination of these to also allows for live camera setting changes such as ISO, Expose, picture quality and White Balance. Also, the app lets you share shot images through a variety of social media platforms.
GPS capability makes a return with the Auto Go Home feature selectable from the app.
Parameters such speed distance and altitude can be monitored live from the app.
The transmitter (remote control) comes with a mount that allows you to mount your smartphone directly on to your controller for easy viewing.
