Dji Phantom 4: Test/Comparison/Evaluation

Dji now offers an revised variant of dji phantom 4 an. the professional version-the 1.699, -euro expensive  dji phantom 4 professional-completely and completely instead of a 12-megapixel camera about a 20-megapixel camera as well as a power amplifier anti-collision system with new, side-aligned infrared sensors.the d99 phantom 4 pro is a  1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 9, 

Dji Phantom 4 Pro: Typical Rtf Quadrocopter

The  DJI Phantom 4 Pro toy like the regular DJI Phantom 4 variant-is delivered with numerous accessories. This includes charger, charging cable, battery, transport case, spare propeller, gimbal and camera protector for transport, microUSB cable, 16 gigabyte microSD card, USB OTG cable or remote control. Like most DJI drones, the DJI Phantom 4 Professional is a typical representative of the RTF architecture-there is no lack of anything needed for the flight.

Only a smart phone must be available to control the DJI Phantom 4 Pro and the camera of the drone with the free DJI GO app. Alternatively, the DJI Phantom 4 Pro can also be configured and put into operation with the optional DJI FPV monitor. This is not a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), but an FPV display mounted on the remote control with an embedded DJI GO app as a ground station. Either way, not only important telemetry data and flight parameters, but also camera and camera settings are displayed in an intuitive but slightly overloaded interface.Worth mentioning are the quick release propellers delivered in the DJI Phantom 4 series, which can be mounted and disassembled within a few seconds. The look of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro is enormously high-quality-durable plastic and magnesium on the gimbal and camera unit give an excellent impression. For the most part, the DJI Phantom 4 Pro is similar to the traditional DJI Phantom 4 model, which we   tested extensively here.

Dji Phantom 4 Pro: 20 Megapixels Instead Of 12 Megapixels

Resolving fetishists will find a new favorite with the new DJI Phantom 4 Pro and the 1-inch and 20-megapixel CMOS camera sensor. The integrated camera offers four times as large image sensor not only more details and sharpness, but also higher capacity at the domestic postproduction. In addition, the camera allows the recording of  4K material at up to 60 frames per second, a bit rate of up to 100 Mbps instead of 60 Mbps as well as a much better picture quality and a higher dynamic capture thanks to H.256 Videocodec. Another new feature is the mechanical rather than electronic shutter, which is designed to provide better results in movement blur, especially at maximum shutter speeds of up to 1/2000 seconds. The electronic shutter has also been optimized and now provides maximum shutter speeds of up to 1/8000 seconds and a new burst mode, the latter with up to 14 frames per second.

The Most Important Innovations

20-megapixel camera

Bit rate up to 100 Mbps and H.256 video codec

Fifth-Sided Detection Of Obstacles

Overall, the DJI Phantom 4 Professional now offers a five-sided obstacle detection. Like the DJI Phantom 4 of the entry-level version, there are visual camera sensors in the  front landing gear, which act as front anti-collision detection. In addition, the DJI Phantom 4 Pro is also equipped with visual cameras for the reverse flight-so close to the battery drawer. The Phantom 4 Pro also features side-by-side infrared sensors, which are oriented to the left and right. Overall, the DJI Phantom 4 Pro offers a five-sided obstacle detection system, including the down-pointing VPS system and the standard model. A pity: Above the quadrocopter is still no obstacle sensor-such a solution remains only the same time presented DJI Inspire 2 reserved. The infrared sensors on the side also operate at distances of up to seven meters and have a horizontal field of view of 70° and a vertical field of view of 20°. In the respective beginner as well as the tripod mode, To create a 3D image of the environment and to react to obstacles with corresponding evasive maneuvers.

Six Visual Cameras Make Reliable Navigation System

The six visual cameras-two at the front, two at the rear and two at the bottom-are not only used to detect obstacles, but also form the basis for better navigation.Overall, there are now no longer only two visual sensors as VPS, but six sensors for position determination or an extremely accurate floating state-for example in interior spaces or in the case of a weak GPS signal.

Optional With 5.5 Inch Large Display In Remote Control (Dji Phantom 4 Pro+)

According to WHOLEVEHICLES, the DJI Phantom 4 can be bought either with conventional remote control or optionally with a remote control with an integrated, 5.5-inch display with HD resolution.According to DJI, the latter variant is supposed to offer a considerably higher brightness compared to conventional smartphone displays, and in this respect, above all, worthwhile for professional users. The DJI GO app is already preinstalled in the display.

In addition, the 5.5-inch screen offers an HDMI connector, a microSD card slot, a microphone port, integrated speakers and an integrated WiFi module to share photos from the DJI GO app on social networks, for example. The built-in rechargeable battery should allow up to four hours of operation. DJI sells the variant with integrated display as DJI Phantom 4 Pro Plus. For the plus version of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro, 1.999, -Euro are due, therefore the integrated display hits 300, -Euro. The traditional variant of the DJI Phantom 4 Pro costs 1.699, -Euro.

Conclusion And Rating

The DJI Phantom 4 Pro is a successful rework of the traditional DJI Phantom 4 model. Owners of a DJI Phantom 4 can consider switching to the Pro model as long as camera quality as well as security sensors are not enough. Apart from that, the changes are quite sparse, which is why the “normal” hobby users can safely remain with the entry-level model of the DJI Phantom 4. However, if you are considering a new acquisition, you can also take advantage of the professional DJI Phantom 4 model. This model, thanks to a larger image sensor, not only offers more capacity for post-processing of photos and videos, but also a much higher level of security due to the enhanced and improved anti-collision system.
