DJI’s Mini 2 SE ultraportable drone takes to the skies • TechCrunch

It’s a couple of years since DJI first launched its Mavic Mini, and final yr it introduced the Mini 3 Professional. It’s totally complicated why the present drone is known as the Mini 2 SE, however in any case, it’s the most recent flying creature within the hovering menagerie that’s the DJI line-up.

The drone has a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor that may shoot 12 mpx pictures and might shoot video at 2.8K. Not gonna lie; that’s a curious selection for decision for video and a somewhat odd sensor measurement. The 1/2.3-inch is utilized in compact mirrorless cameras, however most critical photographers are likely to go for bigger sensors for warmth dissipation and higher depth of discipline choices. DJI guarantees all of it is sensible as soon as your palm-sized flying digicam is buzzing about capturing footage.
