See the Bigger Picture
Our dream has always been to make a drone that exists where engineering, technology, and the needs of the aerial photographer converge. A drone that embodies all of DJI's advanced, signature technologies, and is able to redefine what is possible for the world of aerial photography.
In creating the Mavic 2 , we have made this dream come true.
DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, and Hasselblad, the leader in high-quality professional medium format cameras, have teamed up once again to create a newly integrated aerial photography system. DJI Mavic 2 Pro, featuring the collaboratively developed Hasselblad L1D-20c, brings innovative experiences to the field with advancements in drone photography.
The Hasselblad L1D-20c, a state-of-the-art aerial camera, sets a higher standard for aerial image quality. With its powerful 20MP 1” sensor, it offers improved lowlight shooting capabilities in comparison to previous DJI drone cameras. Furthermore, with the Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution(HNCS), images are captured with the utmost colour accuracy.
Together, DJI and Hasselblad have adapted the HNCS to the imaging process of the Mavic 2 Pro. HNCS optimizes the image captured by bringing out a wider array of colours, delivering absolute colour accuracy. This system delivers the best possible natural colours without having to select from multiple presets, for example, exposure presets commonly used when photographing images involving sunsets or foliage. This technology has been seamlessly integrated into the Mavic 2 Pro camera system to give improved colour and tonal rendering when capturing video and still images.
In the extremes of outdoor aerial photography, HNCS is the ideal colour space to capture vibrant hues and nuanced tones, enabling photographers to achieve new heights of image quality.

Made in Sweden, Hasselblad cameras are renowned for their iconic ergonomic design, uncompromising image quality, and Swedish craftsmanship. Since 1941, Hasselblad cameras have captured some of the world’s most iconic images – including the first moon landing.
Co-engineered in partnership with Hasselblad after two years of tireless research, the Mavic 2 Pro comes equipped with the all-new Hasselblad L1D-20c camera. The L1D-20c possesses Hasselblad’s unique Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS) technology, 5 helping users to capture gorgeous 20-megapixel aerial shots in stunning color detail.

1-inch CMOS Sensor
The brand new 1-inch CMOS sensor has an active sensing area four times more effective than the original Mavic Pro. The large sensor also means better performance in low-light environments with a more extensive ISO range, max ISO lifted from 3200 to 12800.
10-bit Dlog-M Color Profile
The Mavic 2 Pro supports a 10-bit Dlog-M color profile that yields higher dynamic range for more flexibility in the grading room. The system records over 1 billion colors (compared to the 16 million colors from traditional 8-bit color coding technologies) and retains more in-depth details in both highlights and shadows. Now you can capture the subtlest gradations at sunset or sunrise, leaving greater space for post-production.
With 4K 10-bit HDR support, the Mavic 2 Pro can be plugged into a 4K TV with HLG and will immediately play back footage with the right color tones. The brighter highlights and increased contrast are what make HDR video so appealing.
The f/2.8-f/11 adjustable aperture delivers outstanding image quality both in high and low-light environments. When shooting in low light, set the aperture to f/2.8 to allow more light in and to capture bright and clear photos. When shooting in well-lit environments, set the aperture to f/11 to lower the shutter speed and make your videos smoother.
I'm incredibly impressed with the Mavic 2 Pro images. Hasselblad seems to produce the same stunning quality wherever they apply their magic, be it medium-format studio cameras, or amazingly attached to the nimble wings of a Mavic.
