Here’s a sample aerial 360 photo from the Mavic Air 2. What resolution can you get? Can you get higher resolution than 32 megapixels?
Mavic Air 2 was recently released and as with other DJI drones in the past two years, the Mavic Air 2 can take 360 photos by taking several photos and stitching them. However, the Mavic Air 2 is different in that by default, the photos are stitched immediately and you will not get the individual photos. The stitched resolution is 32 megapixels (8000 x 4000).
However, Jeff AASDrone, a drone pilot and French air force veteran, shared with me a 360 photo from the Mavic Air that was as high as 19650 x 9825 (193 megapixels). Here is the photo. Not only does it have exceptional detail but the dynamic range is also amazing.
Note: it appears Teliport cannot show the full resolution. However, the crop shown at the beginning of this post shows the full detail.
I don’t know how Jeff captured this high resolution 360 photo from the Mavic but I’ll update this post if when I find out. If you want to get the Mavic Air 2, it is available for $799 from B&H Photo, Amazon or direct from DJI, or $988 for the Fly More Combo with three batteries and other accessories (B&H Photo, Amazon, direct from DJI).
UPDATE from Jeff: “By default the [Mavic Air 2] does not save the photos separately and you only get a 32 Mpxl already stitched photo. To activate the recording of DNG files, when you are in the photosphere menu, you have to look in the options where you will find ” none / jpg / dng ”. This considerably increases the definition of your panoramas.” Each DNG photo has a resolution of 4000 x 3000 (12 megapixels).
