CAMERA WITH 1-INCH 20MP SENSOR

The onboard camera is equipped with a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. A mechanical shutter is used to eliminate rolling shutter distortion, which can occur when taking images of fast-moving subjects or when flying at high speeds. In effect, it is as powerful as many professional cameras. More powerful video processing supports H.264 4K videos at 60 fps or H.265 4K at 30 fps, both with a 100Mbps bitrate. Excellent optical performance, sensors, and processors ensure everything is captured with high dynamic range and more image detail needed for advanced post-production.

The Phantom 4 Advanced's onboard camera is equipped with a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor. A custom engineered lens made up of eight elements arranged in seven groups. The camera is as powerful as many traditional DSLRs.

1-INCH 20-MEGAPIXEL CMOS

Sensor size is more important to image quality than the number of pixels because a larger sensor captures more information in every pixel, improving dynamic range, signal-to-noise ratio, and low light performance. The 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor in the Phantom 4 Advanced is almost four times the size of the Phantom 4's 1/2.3in sensor. It uses larger pixels and has a maximum ISO of 12800 as well as increased contrast. It is good enough for images to be used immediately, while also capturing enough detail for advanced post-processing.

Professional 4K Video

An enhanced video processing system allows video to be captured in cinema and production optimized DCI 4K/60 (4096 x 2160/60 fps) at a bitrate of 100 Mbps, enabling you to get high-resolution slow motion shots. The Phantom 4 Advanced also supports the H.265 video codec (maximum resolution 4096X2160/30 fps). For a given bitrate, H.265 doubles the amount of image processing as H.264, resulting in significantly enhanced image quality. Recording in high dynamic range D-log makes the most of image data for color grading.

HIGH RESOLUTION LENS

The resolution and contrast of a lens is critical to image quality, because only a quality lens can capture sharp, vivid photos at high resolutions. The brand new Phantom 4 Advanced camera has an aerial optimized F2.8 wide-angle lens with a 24 mm equivalent focal length. It features eight elements – two aspherical – arranged in seven groups that fit into a smaller, more compact frame. Its images are consistently detailed with low distortion and dispersion, ensuring that photos and videos are sharp and vivid.

* The MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) results have been made public, so people can get a better understanding of lens performance. An MTF chart is used to measure the ability of a lens to reproduce contrast and resolve details. Low spatial frequencies reflect overall contrast, and high spatial frequencies reflect detailed resolution. Both are measured in LP/mm. The image height indicates the distance of a given point on the lens from the center of the sensor. An MTF score of 100% indicates perfect performance.

CAPTURE EVERY MOMENT

Aerial imaging is not only used to capture landscapes but also to bring about new perspectives. For example, when filming action scenes or motor racing, capturing objects moving at high speeds has always been a challenge for flying cameras using electronic shutters. The Phantom 4 Advanced uses a mechanical shutter and a large-aperture prime lens. A mechanical shutter with a maximum speed of 1/2000s eliminates rolling shutter distortion which can occur when taking images of fast moving subjects, or when flying at high speeds. The electronic shutter has also been improved with a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000s. A new Burst Mode is capable of shooting 14 fps at 20-megapixels, all for catching the perfect moment.

5 Vision Sensors

Equipped with DJI’s FlightAutonomy system made up of five vision sensors, dual-band satellite positioning (GPS and GLONASS), ultrasonic rangefinders, and redundant sensors, the Phantom 4 Advanced can hover precisely in places without GPS and navigate complex environments. The dual forward vision sensors can see as far as 30 m out in front, enable auto brake, and hover or detour in front of obstacles within a 15-meter range.

REMOTE CONTROLLER WITH BUILT-IN SCREEN

The Phantom 4 Advanced+ comes equipped with the upgraded Lightbridge HD video transmission system, which has a maximum video transmission range of 4.3 mi (7 km). * A 5.5-inch 1080p screen integrated with the Phantom 4 Advanced+ offers 1000 cd/m2 of brightness, more than twice as bright as conventional smart devices, enabling clear visibility in direct sunlight. With a five-hour battery life, the Phantom 4 Advanced+ is a powerful aerial imaging solution. The built-in DJI GO 4 app allows you to live stream, edit, and share your aerial videos and photos instantly.

Draw is a brand new technology for waypoint control. Simply draw a route on the screen and the Phantom 4 Advanced will move in that direction while keeping its altitude locked. This allows the pilot to focus on camera control and enables more complex shots. There are two Draw modes that can be used in different scenarios.Forward: The aircraft follows the route at a constant speed with the camera facing in the direction of flight.Free: The aircraft only moves along the route when instructed. In this mode, the camera can face any direction during a flight.

Following fast-moving objects can be very challenging. However, superior image recognition algorithms used by the Phantom 4 Advanced allow it to recognize and track an object while keeping it in frame. This new algorithm also recognizes a broad range of subjects, from people, vehicles, and animals, and will adjust its flight dynamics accordingly for smoother shots.Pilots can now choose between:Trace – Follow behind or in front of a subject, avoiding obstacles automatically.Profile – Fly alongside a subject at a variety of angles to get profile shots of the subject.Spotlight – Keep the camera trained on a subject while the aircraft flies almost anywhere.

Fly in any direction visible on-screen with a simple tap. Tap anywhere on the screen to smoothly adjust the direction of flight while automatically avoiding obstacles *. Tap the screen again or use the control sticks to change direction. A new AR route function shows the aircraft’s real-time flight direction for reference. It can be difficult to control altitude, course, speed, and camera pitch simultaneously using the control sticks. TapFly Free allows a pilot to set the direction of flight, allowing them to turn the Phantom 4 Advanced or tilt the gimbal as required without changing flight direction. In total, there are now two TapFly modes:TapFly Forward – Tap to fly in the selected direction.TapFly Free – Lock the forward direction of the Phantom without locking the camera direction allowing it to turn as it flies.*Obstacle Avoidance is not available with TapFly Free.

In its Return to Home mode, the Phantom 4 Advanced can automatically choose the best route to return home depending on environmental conditions. It records its route as it flies, allowing it to return along the same route avoiding obstacles if the control signal is disconnected.Based on its altitude at the time of disconnection, the Phantom 4 Advanced is also able to adjust its flight path to avoid obstacles it has seen during the flight. At takeoff, the Phantom 4 Advanced records the scene below and will compare its recording with what it sees as it returns for a more precise landing. It can also detect the ground to see whether there is a suitable spot for landing. If any obstacles are found, or if there is water on the ground, it will alert the pilot and hover at an appropriate height, helping the aircraft land safely.

Using Gesture Mode, selfies can be captured easily using a few gestures. Advanced computer vision technology allows the Phantom 4 Advanced to follow instructions through gestures. To take a picture in Gesture Mode, a person simply lifts their arms when facing the camera. The aircraft will recognize this movement by locking on to them, placing the person in the middle of the frame. When ready for a photo, the person holds their arms out to signal the aircraft. A three second countdown will begin, enough time to strike a pose. Now all these moments can be captured without a remote controller in sight.

The Phantom 4 Advanced is able perform optimally in different situations depending on requirements. There are three main flight modes: Position, Sport and Atti. In P-Mode, TapFly, ActiveTrack, obstacle sensing, and GPS positioning are available. S-Mode adds extra agility and higher speed, reaching 45 mph (72 kph). A-Mode switches off satellite stabilization and holds the Phantom 4 Advanced’s altitude, ideal for experienced pilots looking to capture smoother footage. Tripod Mode, which limits speed to 4 mph (7 kph) provides precision control for fine framing and indoor flying.

The Phantom 4 Advanced features dual compass modules and dual IMUs. Compasses and IMUs are important sensors that ensure stability and reliability during flight. The Phantom 4 Advanced constantly compares the data it receives through both pairs of sensors. This data runs through advanced algorithms, and any inaccurate data is simply discarded without affecting flight.

Professional aerial imaging benefits from longer flight times. The Phantom 4 Advanced has a maximum flight time of 30 minutes, offering more time in the air to capture the perfect shot. The DJI GO 4 app shows battery life and calculates remaining flight time according to distance traveled and more. It will sound alerts when it reaches the minimum battery level required to return home safely. Its advanced battery management system prevents overcharging and over-discharging. When in long term storage, batteries will automatically discharge to maintain optimum longevity.

When using the DJI GO 4 app, a large number of intelligent flight modes are available. It also provides access to full manual camera controls, including ISO, aperture, shutter speed, image formats, and more. Any changes in DJI GO 4 will appear almost instantly on screen. Vital flight data and video transmission status are easy to check in app, further enhancing control efficiency and convenience.
