And if you're interested in getting sharper overhead shots without as much worry about crashing, the look no further than the DIGI, I maverick to pro drone. It's pretty sweet. I'm Jefferson Graham with USA day and you're listening to talking tech. Let me tell you about my new toy. The maverick to is the update to the maverick pro drone which broke ground in two thousand sixteen as the first somewhat affordable quality drone that was also compact enough to fit into a backpack. Now, the original sold for around thousand bucks and had a camera sensor, the size of smartphone, good, but not great. The new edition has the same sensor as the one thousand. I'm like a big camera like the Sony Rx, one hundred or are extend a full one inch, twenty megapixel image sensor, which is seventy five. Percent larger than before, and there's also this massive piece of glass made by the legendary Kamya manufacturer Hasselblad. In other words, the drone is a photographer's dream. It's also more pricey starting at fifteen hundred dollars. And I say starting because you can't exactly walk out the store with just the drone. You're gonna need extra batteries as well. Deejay says the battery lasts around thirty minutes. Yeah, which may work well for the company, but in my real world test has been more like twenty minutes. And if you go out to some awesome location with your drone and start flying it over cliffs mountains and oceans face it, you're gonna be there awhile get. Don't just want twenty minutes of flight time. Another battery will cost you a hundred and forty dollars, and that's just for one. Now beyond the photography which I'll get into shortly. There's also obstacle avoidance. You fly a drone at least at first and you'll crash. It's part of the learning curve, but the pneumatic to has more sensors in the drone for better avoidance technology than the previous edition. It will ring to warn you and swerve out of the way of obstacles which is really cool. Photo quality is super impressive. The best I've ever seen on a drone, the four k. images really pop and the drone flight is so smooth that you rarely see jerky footage now. Now DJ also introduced a less expensive maverick upgrade the magic to zoom with the same size, smaller image sensor as the previous magic, but with a twist. There's also a zoom lense a so called zoom lens similar to the zooms on bigger iphones and the ten models you go from wide-angled deport boats. So it's kinda minimal the features nice. But let's face it. I'm flying over a Hawaiian coast or a hiking trail. I'm pretty high up there, and that's the point I want the wide shot like from the airplane, looking down the little zoom Inc. Get me very close at all. Now, remember listeners that if you're new to flying drones, you need to obey the basic law set out by the FAA don't fly over four hundred feet over people's. Heads moving cars at night or over your neighbors back many local cities have their own drone rules as well. So be sure to check before you start soaring into the skies.
