DJI introduces not one but two drones in an event recently. While everyone was anticipating the DJI Inspire 2, I believe consumers/photographers like me will be more interested in the Phantom 4 Pro.
Phantom 4 Pro
Built with all the goodness of the DJI Mavic Pro (except its size), it retains the familiar shape of the Phantom series. However, internally, it got a number of upgrades. Now it has a control range of 7km, a whopping 1-inch sensor for the camera, six sensor navigation system (2 front, 2 rear, 2 bottom) and 30 minutes of flight time.The Phantom 4 Pro is available now at USD1,599.

Inspire 2 is a slightly higher end model for professional. It can go from 0 to 80km/hr in 4 seconds and has a top speed of 108km/hr. That is really fast. It now has a self-heating battery that you can rely on if you are filming in cold weather.
What is interesting is that DJI is touting it to be a film maker tool for filming. who has used a drone to film a film and not all are aerial shots. Check out this video shot entirely with Inspire 2.

I think DJI is changing the perspective of drones in the real world. I am loving my Mavic Pro.
