Although the original Mavic (the Mavic Pro, 2016) released by DJI has been around for a couple years, the second half of 2018 saw several updated iterations of the Mavic released to an enthusiastic market. The Mavic 2 Zoom was released in August 2018 (along with its counterpart, the Mavic 2 Pro), and just two months later, on October 29, 2018, the Mavic 2 Enterprise and Enterprise Dual burst on the scene. All of the recent versions offer improvements on the original Mavic, while having a variety of unique individual features which make them suited to different applications. Here we compare three models, the Mavic 2 Zoom, the Mavic 2 Enterprise and the Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual, to highlight some of these unique features, and identify which applications each of these three is best suited for.
About the Mavic 2 Enterprise Zoom and Dual
The camera on the Mavic 2 Enterprise is essentially the same as that on the Mavic 2 Zoom, with all of its features and functions. The main difference here arises, in the other payload options: the speaker, the beacon, and the spotlight. And the self-heating batteries. It’s these options that make the enterprise models of the Mavic ideal for business applications such as utility inspections, search and rescue, first responders and law enforcement. The Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual carries a slightly less robust camera than the Mavic 2 Zoom and the Mavic 2 Enterprise, but has the added feature of a thermal camera. The visual camera in the Dual does not have zoom capabilities but instead houses a side-by-side 4K sensor to capture visible light and a FLIR Lepton thermal camera to capture thermal data. These thermal capabilities make the Dual a good choice for work in emergency services and for those in light industrial sectors. The Enterprise Mavics also feature GPS timestamping which records the time and date that the images and videos are taken for better data processing. Another benefit of the M2E is password protection which ensures secure access to the drone and onboard data storage.
