DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0

The Phantom was a game changer, with early models being the first to have a gimbal-stabilized camera rather than needing the user to supply their own. Because of its tough body design, it is no longer the apparent choice for beginners or consumers (for whom folding goods offer at least the same practicality), but it does have a strong use-case for the occasional expert.

If you plan on transporting the drone in the back of your car and don’t mind it taking up the majority of a specialised bag (rather than just a side pocket like the Mavic Air), the Phantom Pro 4’s latest version is highly appealing. The redesigned props for quieter flying are obviously appealing, as is the new OcuSync radio system, which allows for 1080p video on the monitors (although it will not function with the older controls).

There were fears that this drone may be discontinued, but DJI has recently verified that the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is back in production. That’s fantastic news for any drone pilot who aspires to be a true professional photographer.
