The principle distinction between the 2 is the Mini SE makes use of the $449 DJI Mini 2’s chassis, providing fewer uncovered screws and progressed fingers and wind velocity resistance. It additionally packs lighter, extra tough LiPo batteries, propellers, and a charging hub.
The Mini SE has a USB-C charging port, too, as a substitute of micro-USB. It additionally does not wish to be up to date to get 24p video or guide ISO settings. Sadly, there’s no 4K video (and even 4K imprinted on the lens) – simply 2.7K and 1080p. It most probably lacks picture upgrades as neatly.
There are a pair accent issues to notice: The Mavic Mini battery charging hub can not price the Mini SE battery, and whilst the Mini SE can use the Mavic Mini’s battery, the facility is diminished. However the Mavic Mini DIY Ingenious Equipment, Mavic Mini Snap Adapter, Mavic Mini Propeller Holder, and Mavic Mini Clever Flight Battery (world model most effective) are all suitable with Mini SE.
