DJI released the Phantom 4 Pro a few months ago and it is among the new collection of DJI drones that hit the market. It came in together with the Mavic Pro and a couple of other drones. While it may seem that DJI drones are all the same, they actually have quite a lot of difference with each other. In fact, each DJI drone usually target a special set of audience and is equipped with its own special set of features.

As for the Phantom 4 Pro, it is more like a photography-drone rather than a hobbyist's drone. Unlike the compact Mavic Pro, the Phantom 4 Pro is bigger and more solid. This is why the Mavic is usually targeted towards the travelers while the Phantom 4 Pro is usually advertised for photographers. Nevertheless, DJI drones all have something in common. New generation drones from the Chinese company are all equipped with high-tech sets of intelligent flight systems that make them easy to fly and far from collisions.

As for the specificities of the Phantom 4 Pro, it has a more professional camera specs compared to other drones. It has 4K video support and its camera captures at 60 fps. CNET said that the Phantom 4 Pro has a max video bitrate of 100 Mbps and it has an aperture control of f2.8-f11. There is also a 128 GB microSD card for saving media. The camera itself has 20 megapixels and has a 1-inch CMOS sensor. The DJI Phantom 4 Pro also boasts of its mechanical shutter.

For the Phantom 4 Pro's price, do know that it can be bought for $1500 with the standard controller. For the high-luminance display controller combo, the price increases to $1800. It's a few hundred dollars away from the less-expensive DJI Mavic Pro. However, the Mavic has a less-ambitious camera specs that can't beat the Phantom 4 Pro drone. Nevertheless, with DJI being the leading company in the drone industry, all of its drones are smart, top of the line, and collision-free.
