The Ultimate Mavic Mini vs Mavic Air 2 comparison for Photographers
Which One to Pick?

Camera Mavic Mini vs Air 2 comparison
I’ve thrown in the Mavic Pro 2 and my Sony A6500 camera for comparison. As you can see the difference is negclectible.
As you can tell from these examples, the picture quality of the two drones is very much in line which is what you would expect from the limited difference in sensor size. The advantage of the Air 2 mainly lies in the aditional photo modes that make it easier to produce higher quality images through HDR and Noise stacking.
The Elephant in the Room
As we have seen earlier the Mavic Pro 2 sensor is about 4 times larger then the Air 2. This means quite a difference in image quality and dynamic range.
But with 907 grams of weight vs 570, the Pro 2 is also heavier and bigger, and therefore less packable.
Add in the fact that the price difference is another €600 more and you can see why the Air 2 is such a good deal.
The Air 2 is also capable of filming in 4K at 60 frames per second where the Pro 2 tops out at 30 frames per second. The Pro 2 does have a higher bit rate for the video, and therefore larger dynamic range.
For the most challenging conditions, the Pro 2 will probably give the best results, but the Air 2 is not far behind and with less weight and size will probably end up in your bag more often.
Conclusion Mavic Mini vs Air 2 comparison
To summarize this Mavic Mini vs Air 2 comparison I’ve included the table below. I’ve indicated with green where aspects win in my opinion. As you can see the Air 2 wins out in all expects except size and weight. The Mini 2 improves on several aspects and the advantage of the Air 2 becomes smaller. So make sure to wait for the release to make your final decision.
