P4 Pro V2 released on january 2020  The Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is a complete aerial imaging solution, designed for the professional creators. It has an excellent mechanical shutter that eliminates rolling shutter distortion that can occur when shooting fast moving subjects or flying at high speed. We love to use this drone but we cannot use it in the Bosphorus due to its size and weight. We use it at shipyards and anchorage areas only.

M2 Pro released on agust 2018. The Mavic 2 Pro’s image quality is very good overall. Thanks to a 20MP one-inch Hasselblad sensor. We love to use this drone for video recording and photography. We did thousands video shoots with this drone. One of the key features of the drone beside the 1” inch sensor and the 28mm equivalent focal length is the adjustable aperture providing f/2.8 to f/11. This not only means that you can control exposure and depth-of-field, but it also provides the ability to shoot in aperture priority, shutter priority or manual mode.

M3 Pro released on july 2022. The drone features the Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution, the culmination of decades of photographic experience that delivers vivid, natural colors. Video specs: 5.1K Video /50 fps 200 mbps.  4K Video/120fps , 10-bit D-Log. Mavic 3 not only records aerial videos at high resolutions and framerates, it also captures up to 1 billion colors with a 10-bit D-Log color profile. It’s perfect for post-productions. We use this drone for special requests and when we need it’s strong battery in windy conditions which is enough for 45 minutes.
