DJI announced the Phantom 4

The DJI Phantom 4 is DJI’s smartest flying camera. Capable of avoiding obstacles, flying with a tap, and automatically tracking a subject. It is more than a camera, it is your creative sidekick. Flying has never been more fun, nor has professional aerial imagery been so easy.


A new, specially designed, magnesium core increases the stiffness and rigidity of the Phantom 4 without compromising weight. Working in tandem with the battery, it lifts the center of gravity closer to the level of the props which increases agility and responsiveness. This is all placed within a sleek and aerodynamically efficient shell.

A re-designed 8 element aspherical lens further reduces fisheye distortion, minimizes chromatic aberration and enhances corner sharpness. Record video at super crisp 4K at 30fps and 1080p at 120fps, and capture 12 megapixel and Adobe DNG RAW compatible stills for a professional look.

Fly With Tap:

Flying is easy for everyone. Double tap the screen to fly. An Obstacle Sensing System keeps the Phantom safe as it goes, and Smart Return Home returns it to you more safely.


Follow me:

Thanks to the new computer vision is the Phantom 4 is able to monitor both moving persons as objects. The drone detects and follows the target, and by tapping on the person or object on the screen (a feature that TapFly hot) 4 Phantom flies back automatically. There is therefore no loose transmitter or GPS tracker need for this functionality.


Sense and Avoid:

Front obstacle sensors combine with advanced computer vision and processing to give the Phantom active obstacle avoidance that allows it to react to and avoid obstacles in its path. Additionally, DJI’s Vision Positioning System has been refined, increasing its effective altitude by over 300% from the Phantom 3’s altitude to 10 meters and sharpening up its positioning capabilities, allowing for greater security and confidence when flying indoors


Sport Mode:

A brand new Sport mode brings responsive controls and the thrill of speed everywhere. An integrated gimbal and new battery positioned to move the center of gravity close to the aircraft’s core combines with raised motors that increase torque reaction, and a reliable flight control system which precisely controls the aircraft’s movement to make flight at high speeds safer. With 72 km/h the Phantom 4 certainly a speed monster.
