VISIONARY INTELLIGENCE.ELEVATED IMAGINATION.

 

An uprated camera is equipped with a 1-inch Megapixel sensor capable  of shooting 4K/60Fps video and burst mode stills at 14 fps. The adoption  of Titanium alloy and magnesium alloy construction increases the  rigidity of the Airframe and reduces weight, making the Phantom 4 Pro  similar in weight to the Phantom 4. The Flight Autonomy system adds dual  rear vision sensors and infrared sensing systems for a total of  five-directions of obstacle sensing and four-directions of obstacle  avoidance.    

20MP Sensor

Camera with 1-inch 20MP Sensor

image89

The onboard camera has been redesigned to use a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS  sensor. A custom engineered lens made up of eight elements is arranged  in seven groups, it is the first DJI camera to use a mechanical  shutter, eliminating rolling shutter distortion which can occur when  taking images of fast moving subjects or  when flying at high speed. In effect, it is as powerful as many  traditional ground cameras. More powerful video  processing supports H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps, both  with a 100Mbps bitrate. Advanced sensors and processors ensure everything is captured with more image detail and the image data needed for advanced post-production. 

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 Pro 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.

High resolution lens

image91

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 Pro  camera has an aerial optimized F2.8 wide-angle lens with a 24mm  equivalent focal length. It features eight elements – 2 aspherical  – arranged in seven groups that fit into a smaller, more compact frame.  Its images are consistently detailed with low distortion and low dispersion,  ensuring that photos and videos are sharp and vivid. For the first time  ever with a DJI camera, MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) results have been made public, so people can get a better understanding of lens performance. 

Capture Every Moment

Aerial imaging is not only used  to capture landscapes; it brings new perspectives to everything from  action scenes to motor racing. Capturing objects moving at  high speed has always been a challenge for flying cameras using an  electronic shutter. This is why the Phantom 4 Pro is the first DJI  Phantom to use a mechanical shutter and a  large-aperture prime lens. A mechanical shutter with a max speed of  1/2000s eliminates rolling shutter distortion which can occur when  taking images of fast moving subjects or when flying at high speed. The  electronic shutter has also been improved with a max shutter speed of  1/8000 seconds, and a new Burst Mode shoot capable of shooting 14 fps at 20 megapixels to catch the perfect moment.

Flight Autonomy

5-Direction of Obstacle Sensing

image95

FlightAutonomy is expanded with  an additional set of high-resolution stereo vision sensors placed at the  rear in addition to the pair placed at the front as  well as infrared sensing systems placed on the left and right sides.  This network creates a total of 5-direction of obstacle sensing and  4-direction of obstacle avoidance,  protecting the Phantom 4 Pro from more obstacles and giving filmmakers  the confidence to capture more complex images.

6-camera navigation system

image96

Three sets of dual vision  sensors form a 6-camera navigation system that works constantly to  calculate the relative speed and distance between the aircraft  and an object. Using this network of forward, rearward and downward  vision sensors, the Phantom 4 Pro is able to hover precisely in places without  GPS when taking off indoors, or on balconies, or even when flying  through windows with minimal pilot control. In the unlikely event that  front and downward sensors are unable to  operate, the aircraft can still hover in place using the rear stereo  vision system. The Phantom 4 Pro also is able to  fly in complex environments at a flight speed of up to 31mph (50kph)  while avoiding obstacles in its path. In Narrow Sensing Mode, the  Phantom 4 Pro narrows its sensing scope enabling it to see in more detail and fly through small spaces.

Infrared sensing system

image97

The Phantom 4 Pro is the first  DJI aircraft to use an infrared sensing system. Placed on the left, and  right sides of the aircraft, these measure the distance  between the aircraft and any obstacles using infrared 3D scanning. When  in Beginner Mode and Tripod Mode, these sensors have a horizontal  field of view of 70° and a vertical field of view of 20°, providing a  wide view of the scene to the sides of the Phantom, and a maximum range  of 23ft (7m). Traditional ultrasonic sensors only have a detection  range of 3-5m and may be confused when affected by propeller vibration.  The infrared sensing system is able to sense larger areas and measure  the distance between the aircraft, identifying the closest objects accurately while avoiding interference, providing more reliable sensing and protection.

Remote Controller with Built-in Screen

A 5.5in 1080p screen integrated with the Phantom 4 Pro + offers 1000 cd/m2 of brightness, more than twice as bright as conventional smart devices. As  the DJI GO app is built into the screen, hardware and software can be  fully optimized, allowing you to edit and share instantly. A five-hour battery life makes the Phantom 4 Pro + a complete aerial imaging solution. The integrated upgraded Lightbridge HD video transmission system supports dual frequencies for greater interference resistance and a maximum video transmission range of 4.3mi (7km)*.

Intelligent Flight

Intelligent Flight - Draw

Draw is a brand new technology for waypoint control. Simply draw a route  on screen and the Phantom 4 Pro 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. 

Active Track feature

The Phantom 4 Pro automatically recognizes subjects, follows and  captures them as they move, making it easier to get complex shots. Following fast-moving objects can be very challenging, but advanced  image recognition algorithms used by the Phantom 4 Pro allow it to  recognize and track the object while keeping it in frame. This new  algorithm also recognizes more subjects, from people to vehicles to  animals, and will adjust its flight dynamics to match, ensuring smoother  shots.
