In a continuation of our previous post about the drone rescue of Rick Allen, we wanted to share with you this photo of the K2 mountain that according to various people on social media has been taken with a DJI Mavic Pro at 8,400m or 27,600 feet high. We are working on getting a final confirmation but wanted to share the photo with you already. If true this ranks as one of the most impressive photos ever taken with the Mavic Pro as far as I am concerned. Update: Bartek Bargiel confirms in a comment on Facebook that it is indeed the Mavic. Wow!

DJI just announced their Super Sale promotion to ‘coincidentally’ take place at the same time as the Amazon Prime Day we announced earlier. For 36 hours, the Chinese drone maker will offer up to 30% discounts on select products. The event starts on July 16 at 12:00, although it doesn’t say what time zone. Even the link to their website is not working at the time of writing this article. I’m sure DJI will straighten that out soon.
Only minutes ago new photos surfaced online, showing the new DJI Mavic 2 ‘Enterprise’ edition. In a previously leaked photo, we already got the impression that the new Mavic 2 would allow for interchangeable gimbal/camera options, but the ‘Enterprise’ edition seems to take that flexibility to a whole new level. It makes sense for DJI to use the compact foldable Mavic platform and allow for different payloads to be mounted. The new photos also show parts of the drone we have not yet seen before.

Lower prices on DJI’s drones will help enthusiasts into the air according to the Chinese drone maker. The world’s largest drone manufacturer will offer discounts up to $300 for drones like the Spark and Mavic Pro as part of the Amazon Prime day promotion, that will start on July 16 at 12 pm EDT and will run for 36 hours. People looking to pick up one of these discounted drones will be able to do so at the official DJI store on Amazon and the regular DJI online store for Canadian and US customers.

Just now we received an email with what seems to be the first real photo of the upcoming DJI Mavic 2. Interestingly enough this new drone from DJI is called the Mavic 2 and not the Mavic Pro 2, meaning that there might indeed be two different models as some people have speculated online. The two different camera/gimbal combinations visible in the photo do seem to indicate that. Let’s take a closer look.
Even though, DJI just postponed their July 18th event “See the Bigger Picture”, some lucky few have already signed NDA’s and have had hands-on experience with DJI’s new drone, that is widely expected to be the successor of the DJI Mavic Pro. Unfortunately, so far any concrete information on the new unmanned aerial system has been hard to come by, but just a few hours ago our ‘friendly leaker’ posted some photos on Twitter that may show on optical zoom lens as one of the main features of the new drone.
