I don't understand why new cameras / drones that are obviously for photography can't be outputting a 16bit heic file? As any HDR/merged pano jpg sucks (imho)

That said I cannot comment on the mini2 as I only have the air2.  I would consider two other factors in making the choice.  First size the mini2 doesn't need to be registered and I wonder if ever stopped(authorities) once they see it as a toy maybe less hassle???

Second factor would be drone noise, again I don't know the mini2 it is smaller and therefore likely to make less drone noise.  The Air2 still makes enough noise that you instantly become the Ahole who put the drone up in the sky. If you're shooting at landmark spots where others are enjoying the view this is a factor to consider.
