With a 1-inch CMOS sensor and large 2.4μm pixels, DJI Air 2S is capable of 5.4K/30fps and 4K/60fps video. This allows users to capture more visual information in every shot, ensuring richer, more dynamic, high-quality results. Let’s go through some of the reasons DJI Air 2S delivers such remarkable camera performance.
A 1-inch sensor delivers countless benefits, especially on a drone as compact and lightweight as DJI Air 2S. This combination means you can get professional-level results more conveniently in more places.
Essentially, a larger sensor means bigger pixels, and each pixel can collect more visual information. That means users can enjoy higher dynamic range, better resolutions, more accurate color, and excellent details in both the highlights and low lights of any scene. This also ensures more flexibility when editing footage. Whether you’re brightening up a dark shot, recovering details in the shadows and highlights, pushing colors further, or even cropping, Air 2S lets you do all of that and much more.
DJI Air 2S lets users capture stunning footage in 5.4K/30fps and 4K/60fps. These resolutions ensure video results are as epic and dynamic as the shooting location, and retain extreme quality and details, even when shown on larger displays.
Timelapse, D-Log, RAW Format, and Intelligent HDR
There are plenty of reasons Air 2S is perfect for creators. Thanks to its 1-inch CMOS sensor, timelapse videos are easy to take and more detailed and dynamic than ever before. A 10-bit Dlog-M color profile can record up to one billion colors while retaining all the nuance that makes footage stand out. RAW format photos with a dynamic range of up to 12.6 stops capture more visual information, giving creators more flexibility when editing. And Intelligent HDR technology merges multiple shots automatically, increasing the dynamic range of images for greater depth.
With DJI Air 2S, DJI continues to push the limits of intelligent and autonomous camera drone features.
The next evolution of QuickShots, MasterShots allows users to get the best shots in any location with just a tap. With this easy-to-use feature, Air 2S automatically records footage along numerous flight routes and generates a cinematic edit. This offers even pilots rich creative solutions for generating breathtaking content.
Selecting and tracking a subject is easier than ever with DJI Air 2S thanks to FocusTrack. This suite of tracking technologies features several advanced options for automatic shooting with your subject in center frame.
DJI Air 2S isn’t just an imaging powerhouse, it’s also equipped with the advanced safety features and technology users have come to expect from DJI.
DJI Air 2S features DJI’s most advanced O3 (OcuSync 3.0) image transmission technology, which delivers an ultra-smooth, clear, and reliable image feed every time you fly. This 1080p feed at distances of up to 12 km  away allows users to not only see more, but to fly further in a safe and reliable way.
DJI Air 2S features obstacle sensing in four directions: upward, downward, forward, and backward. Four pairs of sensors ensure this feature is stable and reliable, even during high-speed flight. Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS 4.0)  has been significantly upgraded for DJI Air 2S, allowing the aircraft to autonomously avoid obstacles, even in highly complex scenarios and at high speeds.
