Review and sample video and photos of DJI's new Mavic Air 2 Drone.
DJI released the Mavic Air 2 in late April 2020, with DPREVIEW calling it the “best all-around drone for most people.”
A lot of reviewers saw its 1/2″ CMOS 12- and 48-megapixels (MP) image sensor, a game-changer for many photographers. Although it was one of its selling points, I have not observed any significant image quality difference between the 12- and 48-MP.
Perhaps DJI is cooking up some useful functions for the 48MP in future firmware updates?
Its videos and photos options are fantastic, especially with DJI’s latest firmware (v01.00.0340) update for the Mavic Air 2 on August 10, 2020.

Estuaries, Brackish Water, Ecosystems and Wetlands With the DJI Mavic Air 2
I have a little obsession with estuaries and their surrounding coastal wetland ecosystems. Below are some estuaries in Ghana and their connecting network of rivers and lagoons with the new DJI Mavic Air 2:
Korle Lagoon Brackish Water
The Korle Lagoon is recognized as one of the most polluted1 water bodies on earth. It links to the Gulf of Guinea, the northeasternmost part of the tropical Atlantic Ocean.
See the article below for the context of the photographs above.
Fish processors in Ghana trade-off between their livelihoods and exposure to cancer-causing toxicants such as PAHs. Climate-related shocks, overfishing, and other human activities are also shaping the mobility of migrant fishers.
Nicknamed after Ghana's current president, the 8 years old 'Akufo-Addo' is engaged in hazardous child labour on the margins of Accra, Ghana's capital city. See how he navigates the fringes of Agbogbloshie, an area once listed alongside Chernobyl and Dzershinsk.
Urban poor men risk injury and drowning to swim in the heavily polluted Korle Lagoon — float alongside human remains sometimes — to recover recyclable plastics, which they sell for around $0.17 per kilo.
