DJI Mini 2 review: A palm-sized drone that's a content creator's dream
The DJI Mini 2 is an imperfect little drone that balances professional features against weight and affordability. DJI were close to perfection with the original Mini: it weighed in at under 250 grams and was easy to operate straight out of the box. However, with a 12 megapixel camera that could only capture images in JPEG format and film video at a maximum resolution of 2.7k resolution – at 30fps – the DJI Mini felt a little bit undercooked.

But don't let this fool you as the image & video capture capabilities of the Mini 2 are impressive for such a lightweight and compact quadcopter. In addition to this the Mini 2 can also capture a range of panoramic photographs ranging from: Sphere : The drone captures 25 images and stitches them together in the DJI Fly app to create a spherical 'tiny planet' effect.
