DJI today revealed the latest drone in the Phantom series, the Phantom 4 Advanced.
The Phantom 4 Advanced model improves on the original Phantom 4 by giving photographers a 1-inch, 20-megapixel sensor and a mechanical shutter to allow more creative photography.
The upgraded camera can shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second. The more powerful video processing now supports H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps, both with a 100Mbps bitrate. Excellent optical performance,

The drone offers excellent optical performance, sensors and processors to ensure images are captured with high dynamic range and with the greater image detail needed for advanced post-production.
The Phantom 4 Advanced has increased storage capacity using a 128GB microSD card and the flight time has been extended to 30 minutes.
Similar to the Phantom 4 Pro, the Phantom 4 Advanced comes with a number of intelligent features to allow smooth automatic flight modes for ease of flying. These include Draw, ActiveTrack, TapFly, Gesture and Tripod.
The drone is also able to hover precisely in places without GPS and fly in complex environments due to its FlightAutonomy system.
There are two versions of the Phantom 4 Advanced, and the Phantom 4 Advanced+ version includes a 5.5-inch 1080p screen integrated into the controller. The screen is more than twice as bright as conventional smart devices, making it an ideal aerial imaging solution for outdoor use.
DJI confirmed that it will phase out the existing Phantom 4 on April 30th 2017 but will continue to provide after-sales support to customers. They also confirmed the DJI GO 4 app will still work with the Phantom 4 model.
The DJI Phantom 4 Advanced retails at $1,349 and the Phantom 4 Advanced+ at $1,649. Both models are available for preorder now at store.dji.com and will start shipping April 30, 2017.
