A 3-axis-stabilized gimbal camera with a 20MP, 1" CMOS sensor makes it so the Phantom 4Pro+ can easily shoot up to 4K/60fps video and well as photo bursts at up to 14 fps. Durable magnesium alloy construction ensures increased rigidity and reduced weight. The FlightAutonomy system adds dual rear-vision sensors plus infrared sensing for a total of five directions of obstacle sensing and four directions of obstacle avoidance.
1" CMOS Sensor
Sensor size is often more important to image quality than the number of pixels, because a larger sensor has dynamic range, better signal-to-noise ratio, and boosted low light performance. The 1" 20MP CMOS sensor in the Phantom 4 Pro+ is almost four times the size of the Phantom 4's 1/2.3" sensor. It uses larger pixels and has a maximum ISO of up to 12,800 as well as increased contrast.
H.264 and H.265 4K Video Recording
Powerful video processing supports H.264 4K videos at 60 fps or H.265 4K at 30 fps, both recorded in a 100 Mbps bitrate. Advanced sensors and processors ensure everything is captured with more image detail and the image data needed for manipulation in post-production.
High Resolution Lens
The Phantom 4 Pro+ camera has an aerial-optimized f/2.8 wide-angle lens with a 24 mm equivalent focal length. It features eight elements two 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.
Integrated 1080p Display
A 5.5" 1080p screen integrated w offers 1000 cd/m² of brightness, more than twice as bright as conventional smart devices. It makes bright, vivid colors easily visible in direct sunlight. With this screen, a mobile device is not required, simplifying pre-flight preparations. As the DJI GO app is built into the screen, hardware and software can be fully optimized, further reducing video lag. Integration of an HDMI port, microSD card slot, microphone, embedded loudspeaker, and Wi-Fi connection allow images to be edited inside DJI GO to be shared almost instantly. Lastly, a five-hour battery life makes the Phantom 4 Pro+ a complete aerial imaging solution.
Intelligent Flight Modes
With Draw, 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.
ActiveTrack allows you to follow fast-moving objects easily. Advanced, image-recognition algorithms used by the Phantom 4 Pro+ allow it to recognize and track an object while keeping it in frame. This algorithm also recognizes a range of subjects, from people to vehicles to animals, and will adjust its flight dynamics to match, ensuring smoother shots.
TapFly Free allows a pilot to set the direction of flight, allowing them to turn the Phantom 4 Pro+ or tilt the gimbal as required without changing the direction of flight. An AR route function shows the aircraft's real-time flight direction for reference as its route is adjusted. As it can be difficult to control altitude, course, speed and camera pitch simultaneously using joysticks.
In its Return to Home mode, the Phantom 4 Pro+ can automatically choose the best route to return home depending on environmental conditions. It records its route as it flies, allowing it to return along the same route avoiding obstacles if the control signal is disconnected.
Intelligent Battery System
The Phantom 4 Pro+ features a maximum flight time of 30 minutes, providing more time in the air to capture the perfect shot. The DJI GO app shows battery lifetime and calculates remaining flight times according to distance traveled and more. It will give alerts when it reaches a minimum safe amount required for a safe journey back to the takeoff 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.
