Camera With 1-inch 20MP Sensor
The on-board 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.
5 Vision sensors
Equipped with DJI’s Flight Autonomy 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-metre range.
The Lightbridge video transmission system uses advanced transmission technologies and can automatically adjust to environmental conditions. It ensures high quality, low latency image transmission across its range and offers pilots a better shooting experience. Traditional analogue video transmission occupies a larger bandwidth and is more susceptible to interference. It also suffers from poor image quality and short range. Wi-Fi transmission also compares poorly, suffering from low latency, lengthy re-connection times, and short transmission distances due to the high cost of more powerful Wi-Fi transmission.
Professional aerial imaging benefits from longer flight times. The Phantom 4 Advanced has a maximum flight time of 30 minutes, providing more time in the air to capture the perfect shot. The DJI GO 4 app shows battery lifetime and calculates remaining flight times according to distance travelled and more. It will give alerts when it reaches a minimum safe amount required for a safe journey back to the take-off point. An advanced battery management system is also in place to prevent overcharging and over draining. When placed in longer term storage, batteries will discharge power to maintain good health.
When shooting aerials, the remote controller is responsible for most physical controls including piloting and capture. However, more challenging shoots require a real-time video feed, vital flight statistics and advanced settings. These are traditionally handled through a smart device, making the smart device essential to aerial imaging. The DJI GO 4 app is optimized for aerials and is updated along with the aircraft to ensure all features are supported. It can be used on smart devices and is available to be integrated into the DJI CrystalSky monitor, providing simple and convenient control.
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.
DJI GO 4 includes editing features for quick editing and sharing to social media and even live streaming. After each flight, flight routes and data are automatically recorded and synchronized to the attached DJI GO 4 account, keeping it readily accessible for you to review. Both flight logs and data are easy to record and review.
