Earlier this morning, we saw this leaked video showing us the DJI Air 2S and revealing some of its specs. It seems that the new DJI drone may give the DJI Mavic 2 Pro a run for its money, although there is one thing we noticed. The DJI Air 2S does not have the Hasselblad logo on the camera.

You can read here about the specs that were revealed in this accidentally leaked video of the DJI Air 2S. As you can see the drone will come with a 1-inch sensor that is capable of shooting 20MP stills. A larger sensor will help with the overall image quality for both photography and videography, especially in low light conditions.
The only other ‘DJI Mavic’ drone that has a 1-inch sensor is the DJI Mavic 2 Pro that was launched in the summer of 2018. we suspect that the new DJI Air 2S will give the M2P a run for its money in terms of image quality as camera technology has progressed quickly since 2018. We expect the DJI Air 2S to be priced considerably lower than the M2P and thus basically cannibalizing on DJI’s own product line.
What we have not seen in the DJI Air 2 video is the Hasselblad logo. So it seems that the DJI Air 2S will not get the Hasselblad color science that has been used in the Mavic 2 Pro. This is likely a ‘pro’ feature reserved for the upcoming Mavic 3 drone.
A DJI Air 2S with a 1-inch sensor and 20MP at a lower price compared to the M2P will significantly raise the bar for what we can expect for the DJI Mavic 3. We expect the Mavic 3 to have obstacle avoidance sensors in all directions, including the sides. And, we expect that drone to have a Hasselblad-branded camera as well. Will the M3 come out later this year? We think so because with the imminent launch of the Air 2S the current M2P and M2Z has seemingly been made redundant.
