Overnight, DJI announced the DJI Mini 4 Pro. This is the annual update to the Mini 3 Pro we seen last year, which was an incredibly capable drone. DJI takes that platform and iterates on it to improve.
Crafted to be the ultimate companion for adventure enthusiasts, the DJI Mini 4 Pro redefines the boundaries of mini-camera drones, setting a new benchmark for capturing and sharing exhilarating moments.
With its pioneering omnidirectional obstacle sensing and the flagship DJI O4 video transmission technology, this state-of-the-art mini drone empowers users to embrace every heart-pounding experience and channel their creativity into unforgettable endeavours.
Like the Mini 3 Pro, the drone weighs under 249g, meticulously engineered for effortless portability. Its lightweight design not only ensures ease of transport but also aligns with drone regulations in a majority of countries and regions, granting you the freedom to take flight with almost no limitations.
The Mini 4 Pro offers cutting-edge imaging with a 1/1.3-inch CMOS sensor, New Image-Processing Platform and dual native ISO fusion—a hallmark of cinema-grade technology. Its f/1.7 aperture, 48MP image resolution, 4K/60fps HDR video, and Slo-Mo shooting at 4K/100fps capture moments in breathtaking detail. 2.4μm pixels and an enhanced noise reduction algorithm in Night Shots video mode delivers clear, cleaner footage even in low-light conditions.
Additionally, the Mini 4 Pro empowers your creativity with True Vertical Shooting, optimised for social media and smartphone playback. A 60° large-angle tilt for fluid camera motion unleashes cinematic possibilities, while digital video zoom bolsters your storytelling abilities by magnifying photos up to 2x and videos up to 4x.
The Mini 4 Pro allows you to achieve professional-grade post-production control with 10-bit D-Log M recording, granting access to more than a billion colours. No matter where you publish your content, HLG ensures the natural colours and brightness remain true-to-life without adjustment or format conversion due to its high dynamic range. Preserve intricate nuances with 48MP RAW and SmartPhoto technology, an ingenious fusion that harmonises HDR imaging, scene recognition, and more, resulting in images that truly captivate.
The Mini 4 Pro enhances safety with omnidirectional obstacle sensing, utilising multiple wide-angle and a pair of downward vision sensors to detect obstructions from all directions. Complemented by an Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems (APAS), the drone features automatic braking and obstacle bypass, elevating in-flight security.
Extend your creative freedom with up to 34 minutes of flight time, which can be further extended to an impressive 45 minutes using the Intelligent Flight Battery Plus. Additionally, thanks to DJI’s flagship O4 video transmission enjoy ultra-responsive control and smooth 1080p/60fps FHD video transmission capability from distances of up to 20 km.
Enhance your shooting efficiency with Waypoint Flight’s automatic route function while minimising operation fatigue with Cruise Control for long-distance, steady-state flights. The Mini 4 Pro’s Advanced Return-to-Home system automatically navigates a safe flight route back, facilitated by the AR RTH feature for more control during return flights.
The Mini 4 Pro not only offers three intuitive methods for capturing shots—Spotlight, Point of Interest, and ActiveTrack 360°, which allows users to bypass obstacles and achieve smoother, more stable tracking thanks to omnidirectional obstacle sensing—but also enhances creative possibilities with innovative features. By harnessing the follow intelligent features, users can achieve professional-level results with every flight:
- Delivers dynamic camera movement templates tailored for portrait, close-up, and long-range shots, ensuring you nail every shot!
- Provides Dronie, Circle, Helix, Rocket, Boomerang, and Asteroid modes for more stylish results.
- Provides Free, Waypoint, Circle, and Course Lock modes with unlimited shooting time, and supports compositing while shooting.
- Supports shooting 180°, Wide Angle, Vertical, and Sphere panoramic photos to capture magnificent landscapes.
- Quickly transfer photos and videos to your smartphone without linking the remote controller. Your creations will be instantly ready to share.
Edit with LightCut
LightCut streamlines video editing through wireless connection and AI technology, allowing one-tap generation of captivating videos by merging ActiveTrack, MasterShots, and QuickShots footage. The app automates sound effect matching and template application for efficient, high-quality production, while preserving smartphone storage by eliminating the need to download footage.
Real-time sound effects enhance aerial creations, transitioning from “silent” to “vibrant.” An array of aerial shot templates, from nature to cityscape and tilt-shift effects, allows for effortless video creation by importing aerial footage.
