"An excellent device ahead of time. To go camping with the copter it has never been so easy. The price is tucked up, but there are no competitors. All the so-called" phantom killers "are very far in quality and convenience, the closest analogues are the phantoms of the 3 series."
Those who doubt whether it is worth overpaying 11-odd thousand for Phantom 4 or buy Phantom 3 Professional, it will be interesting to compare these two models from the user of Yandex-Market Dmitry Morozov:
"I used to have a phantom of 3 pro, so I want to talk aboutplus the phantom 4 in comparison with the previous model:
1. The body of the phantom 4 is made of good quality and it is more monolithic! There are fewer holes in which moisture can get in the rain, for example. In general, the quality of the materials is much better and more pleasant to the touch, this applies even tocharger
2. Comes with an excellent case - everything is compact and there are 2 places for additional batteries! Handle and lock! In the previous version of the case there is no!
3. Very convenient screws - quickly put and removed, unlike the third phantom!
4. Catching in the hand became more convenient - the camera is shifted forward and there are no other protruding parts, plus the legs are much more rigidly connected to the body!
5. The suspension of the camera is better worked out by strong wind and is generally more reliable! It is extremely difficult to catch the effect of "jelly" on phantom 4, but on the third phantom - it turned out quite often. This is not surprising - because in the fourth phantom, all the extra elements are hidden in the body!
6. The quality of communication is more stable than the third phantom! Where the third phantom lost contact, on the fourth I flew without problems and took pictures!
7. The battery holds a longer charge!
8. I do not remember whether the camera mode was d-log in the third phantom, but in the fourth it is!
There are a lot of minor improvements and improvements in comparison with the third phantom! I was surprised how quickly DJI company improves its products! It's been less than a year between the release of these models - but the difference is huge and progress is evident! "

First, the Phantom 4 Pro received an improved camera with a larger matrix, capable of recording video in 4K at a speed of 60 frames per second, and also 14 photos per second in burst mode. The droning camera was substantially redesigned: it received a one-inch CMOS matrix with a resolution of 20 megapixels( the previous model had 12.4).The lens consists of eight lenses organized into seven groups. For the first time in a DJI chamber of this size, a mechanical shutter is used, allowing you to shoot dynamic scenes without the "jelly effect".
Secondly, now the drone recognizes obstacles in five directions and is able to avoid collisions in four( Phantom 4 saw obstacles just in front of him).This greatly facilitates the operator's work, allowing you to shoot more complex scenes.
Third, there is no longer any need to use a mobile phone as a screen. Built-in display with a diagonal of 5.5 inches and a resolution of Full HD( 1080p) has a brightness of 1000 cd / m2 - twice as bright as most tablets.
