KEY FEATURES

1-inch sensor: The Mavic Air 2S has a large 1-inch sensor that appears similar to that of the Mavic 2 Pro.  With the larger sensor, you can expect higher dynamic range, higher bit depth, and better low light sensitivity.

5.4K video:  The Mavic Air 2S’s 5.4K video resolution is the highest resolution to be offered in the DJI Mavic line.

MasterShot: Air 2S can automatically take 10 different shots focused on your subject and automatically edit them into a video.

FocusTrack: the Air 2S has improved tracking capability with Spotlight 2.0, ActiveTrack 4.0, and Point of Interest 3.0.

Environmental Sensing: it has sensors above, below, forward and backward.  The only direction where it does not have sensors is sideways.

ADS-B: The Air 2S features ADS-B to alert you of nearby aircraft.  ADS-B will also notify other aircraft of other ADS-B equipped craft nearby.

Ocusync 3.0 and SmartController compatibility: the Air 2S has OS3, DJI’s most advanced transmission and is compatible with the SmartController.

DISADVANTAGES

4K cropping: The native video resolution is 5.4K and when shooting in 4K mode, the Air 2S video is cropped.

Lower photo resolution than Mavic Air 2:  The Mavic Air 2 has a higher 48mp resolution while the Air 2S photo resolution is 20mp.  However, the Mavic Air 2’s 48mp resolution is achieved through pixel binning, and the Air 2S’ larger sensor has a higher dynamic range.
