Re: Mavic 2 Pro vs Mavic 2S

You are mixing drones up here.  The yet to be releases 2S will have a 1" 20mpx  chip similar to the PRO 2 - but with no variable aperture.  The current Mavic Air 2 (no "S") has a 1/2" inch sensor that does have a 48mpx mode.  I own the Mavic Air 2.  While it's camera is quite good (much better than original Mavic Air), the 48mpx mode is just a gimmick.  I really found no meaningful additional details in the 48mpx mode than the standard 12mpx.  Partly, I  think you are getting into diffraction issues with pixels that small.    I expect the 20mpx on the new 2S will be a nice improvement - certainly for low light but even daylight situations too.
