Which DJI Drone Is Right for You?

DJI makes a range of consumer drones at varying price points, sizes, and capabilities, and you can generally find one that fits your needs within their lineup. If you are wondering which one is right for you, this great comparison video takes a look at the Mavic Air 2, the Mavic Mini, and the Mavic 2 Pro to help you decide which one is right for you. 

Coming to you from Dan Watson, this fantastic video takes a look at the DJI Mavic Air 2, Mavic Mini, and Mavic 2 Pro. All three are highly portable and capable drones, with sizes ranging from about that of a 70-200mm lens down to the palm of your hand. And of course, they have varying prices, from just $399 up to $1,599 for more professional capabilities. One great thing about the Mavic Mini is that it weighs just 249 g, which puts it under the FAA's required weight for registration. Of course, at that price and size, you make some sacrifices, namely in sensor size, raw capabilities, and video resolution. On the other hand, as you upgrade to the larger and more expensive models, you get bigger sensors for improved image quality, raw capabilities, better flying times, and more video features. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Watson.

And if you live in Hong Kong... None of the DJI drones are available for you.

In order to support CCP China effort to crush Hong Kong freedom, DJI decided to forbid sale of their drones there.

(You can check on the DJI HK shop; all are displayed with "out of stock" since the protest started even is Shenzhen is 50 km away).

But no; there is no connections with this brand and the CCP...

China sucks and will pay for all of this in the near future.

I want American made (or honestly any other country but China) drone review videos, no more dji please.

DJI is Chinese. Everything that can possibly be boycotted from China will be.

DJI is considered as the number 1 drone maker in the industry. Although their prices are high, but you can consider DJI Telo if your budget is less than 200 Dollars. Or if you can spend around 1000 bucks, I believe newly launched DJI Mavic Air 2 is the best option to consider.

check out this post I found over google, they have listed some excellent drones with cameras for 2020. https://dronesheaven.com/best-drones-under-1000/

Well thanks, but this is consumer / hobby level talk.

I would like to know professional photography work (don't care much about video):

DJI Inspire 2 vs DJI Phanton 4 vs DJI Mavic 2
