Phantom 4 Advanced Drone
Phantom 4 Advanced Drone:
DJI are pleased to announce the DJI Phantom 4 Advanced. A new member of the Phantom 4 family, the Phantom 4 Advanced is equipped with advanced image hardware and software, 5 vision sensors, and a paramount aircraft design.
Phantom 4 Advanced:
An uprated camera is equipped with a 1-inch 20-megapixel sensor capable of shooting 4K/60fps video and Burst Mode stills at 14 fps. The FlightAutonomy system includes 5 vision sensors for 2-directions of obstacle sensing and forward-vision obstacle avoidance. The adoption of titanium alloy and magnesium alloy construction increases the rigidity of the airframe and reduces weight, making the Phantom 4 Advanced even lighter than the Phantom 4.
Camera With 1-Inch 20mp Sensor
The onboard camera is equipped with a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. A custom engineered lens made up of eight elements is arranged in seven groups. A mechanical shutter is used to eliminate rolling shutter distortion which can occur when taking images of fast moving subjects or when flying at high speed. In effect, it is as powerful as many traditional ground cameras. More powerful video processing supports H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps, both with a 100Mbps bitrate. Excellent optical performance, sensors and processors ensure everything is captured with high dynamic range and more image detail needed for advanced post-production.
Professional 4K Video
Sensor size is more important to image quality than the number of pixels because a larger sensor captures more information in every pixel, improving dynamic range, signal-to-noise ratio, and low light performance. The 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor in the Phantom 4 Advanced is almost four times the size of the Phantom 4's 1/2.3in sensor. It uses larger pixels and has a maximum ISO of 12800 as well as increased contrast. It is good enough for images to be used immediately, while also capturing enough detail for advanced post-processing. An enhanced video processing system allows video to be captured in cinema and production optimized DCI 4K/60 (4096 x 2160/60fps) at a bitrate of 100Mbps, enabling you to get high-resolution slow motion shots. The Phantom 4 Advanced also supports the H.265 video codec (maximum resolution 4096X2160/30fps). For a given bitrate, H.265 doubles the amount of image processing as H.264, resulting in significantly enhanced image quality. Recording in the high dynamic range D-log mode makes the most of this image data for color grading.
The resolution and contrast of a lens is critical to image quality, because only a quality lens can capture sharp, vivid photos at high resolutions. The brand new Phantom 4 Advanced camera has an aerial optimized F2.8 wide-angle lens with a 24mm equivalent focal length. It features eight elements – 2 aspherical – arranged in seven groups that fit into a smaller, more compact frame. Its images are consistently detailed with low distortion and low dispersion, ensuring that photos and videos are sharp and vivid. The MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) results have been made public, so people can get a better understanding of lens performance. An MTF chart is used to measure the ability of a lens to reproduce contrast and resolve details. Low spatial frequencies reflect overall contrast, and high spatial frequencies reflect detailed resolution. Both are measured in LP/mm. Image Height indicates the distance of a given point on the lens from the center of the sensor. MTF 100% indicates perfect performance.
Capture Every Moment
Aerial imaging is used not only to capture landscapes but also to bring about new perspectives, like when filming action scenes and documenting motor racing. Capturing objects moving at high speeds has always been a challenge for flying cameras using electronic shutters. Phantom 4 Advanced uses a mechanical shutter and a large-aperture prime lens. A mechanical shutter with a max speed of 1/2000s eliminates rolling shutter distortion which can occur when taking images of fast moving subjects or when flying at a high speed. The electronic shutter has also been improved with a max shutter speed of 1/8000 seconds, and a new Burst Mode capable of shooting 14 fps at 20 megapixels, all to catch the perfect moment.
5 Vision Sensors Equipped with the FlightAutonomy system made up of 5 vision sensors, dual-band satellite positioning (GPS and GLONASS), ultrasonic rangefinders and redundant sensors, Phantom 4 Advanced is able to hover precisely in places without GPS and fly in complex environments. The dual forward vision sensors can see as far as 30m out in front, and enable auto brake, hover or detour in front of obstacles within 15-meter range.
Remote Controller with Built-In Screen
Phantom 4 Advanced is equipped with the integrated upgraded Lightbridge HD video transmission system with a maximum video transmission range of 4.3mi (7km).* A 5.5-inch 1080p screen integrated with the Phantom 4 Advanced offers 1000 cd/m2 of brightness, more than twice as bright as conventional smart devices, which means a visibility even in bright direct sunlight. A five-hour battery life makes the Phantom 4 Advanced a complete aerial imaging solution.
The built-in DJI GO 4 app can allow you to live stream, edit and share your aerial videos and photos instantly.
