£1,099 ($1,249) for the Mavic 2 Zoom
£1,299 ($1,449) for the Mavic 2 Pro
When is the release date please?
They haven't said in the keynote yet, but their online shop says delivery 3-5 working days after payment confirmation.
Fly more kit for the 2 is another £279 with a RRP of £434 link
Also 3-5 days in receipt of payment.
The new dolly zoom feature is pretty cool.
Is there likely to be a Phantom release or has the Mavic killed off that line?
It looks like they have a 10% education discount program, I wonder if they'll add the new Mavic 2 considering the Inspire is also on there.
They just announced a trade up program too, where you can trade in your old drone.
US Prices as follow:
$1,249 - Zoom
$1,449 - Pro
Available to order now and will ship right away.
They reckon there's over 100k commercial drone pilots in the US now.
Also they're hosting a conference called AirWorks in Texas for commercial drone pilots in October.
They announced a new hyperlapse mode too.
Promo vid has just been uploaded to YT
Oh man, it looks amazing.
It's a shame they haven't updated the googgles yet, they still look comically large and cumbersome.

Wonder how much I will get for my mavic pro to trade in? Available at the Apple store would be the easiest option.
Here's a review from We Talk UAV for the Pro Version
And a review for the Zoom version
I'm slightly conflicted between the two products. The Pro has a better camera and sensor, but the Zoom has better cinematic capability because of the Zoom and is £200 cheaper.
If you buy one you're still compromising in some aspect on the other.
Seems a shame they couldn't just release a single Mavic 2 Pro drone and integrate the zoom functionality.
They are priced fairly well to be fair, my Air combo kit was just under £1k, so this isn't bad going!
Still not sure how much longer I can keep my Air, before lots of new rules come in and it becomes impossible to fly them anywhere of interest legally.
What is the deal with legislation coming through then? I'd be surprised if it can be properly policed either way.
It looks like iphonedo on YouTube managed to figure out a way to emulate the dolly zoom from the Zoom, but using hyperlapse footage from the Pro!

I just watched the full video from iPhonedo I linked in my previous post above, I think it's the best review yet, even more so than Kai's posted by @RSR, which is also very good, because it's Kai!
iPhondo's intro has incredible production value for a YouTube video!
