Equipped with a 1-inch sensor, the Phantom 4 Pro camera shoots video at up to 4K 60fps and 20 megapixel stills. It has 4 directions of obstacle avoidance, a 30-minute flight time, and 4.1mi (7km) transmission range.
The onboard camera has been redesigned to use a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. A custom engineered lens made up of eight elements is arranged in seven groups, it is the first DJI camera to use a mechanical shutter, eliminating 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. Advanced sensors and processors ensure everything is captured with more image detail and the image data needed for advanced post-production.
The adoption of titanium alloy and magnesium alloy construction increases the rigidity of the airframe and reduces weight. The FlightAutonomy system adds dual rear vision sensors and infrared sensing systems for a total of 5-direction of obstacle sensing and 4-direction of obstacle avoidance.
