DJI Inspire 2 VS Mavic Pro 2 are two name dreamy of all player who makes a high-quality video; it was born with two different market goals. The Inspire aims, in fact, at the prosumer segment, while the Mavic goes for the consumer/enthusiast side. And If you are planning to invest in one of them, you confuse about which one you should choose. Don’t worry, let’s Staaker will go in-depth details of each drone to find one suit for you.
The Inspire is incredibly sleek, heavy, intimidating. It almost looks like a futuristic murder bot (seriously, this thing can fly high above children’s heads and threaten their lives).
It is made of high-quality carbon fiber and slick metal and can reach speeds up to 50+ mph. The Zenmuse X7, a detachable camera system that is the Inspire 2, is the crown jewel. It can be purchased with four interchangeable lenses, which will allow it to capture truly cinematic footage.

DJI Mavic 2 Pro vs. DJI Inspire 2
Drones are notorious for poor low-light performance. A drone can only capture cinematic shots at night, even with noise reduction and color correcting. To test the drone’s basic level of night videography, they were taken out to my local neighborhood shortly before sunset to capture some footage.
The Inspire 2 is clear at first glance. The Inspire 2 is brighter, more detailed, and captures the scene better. Both videos are noisy. Without serious work, I wouldn’t consider these “movie-ready”.
The quality of the onboard camera is one of the most important aspects to consider when buying a drone. This is a major reason why people purchase drones. Which shot is the best?
It looked like the Inspire 2 was the Mavic 2 Pro after looking through the test shots taken around the city.
The Inspire felt extremely detailed and had a great “cinematic depth” thanks to its 50mm Lens. The footage of the Mavic is nothing to be ashamed of. We are comparing a $1500 drone to a drone that costs upwards of $8,000. While the Mavic can capture cinematic footage, the Inspire is more capable.
DJI Inspire 2 vs Mavic Conclusion
To answer, which drone is the best? Yes, there is no exact answer here; good or not depends quite a lot on who the user is and your intended use. If you don’t use drones too often for your work, then maybe Mavic very suit is for you, but if you need a professional drone and more advanced features, then maybe you should pour your money into Inspire.
