The onboard camera is equipped with a 1-inch 20 megapixel CMOS sensor. A custom engineered lens made up of eight elements is arranged in seven groups. A mechanical shutter is used to eliminate rolling shutter distortion which can occur when taking images of fast moving subjects or when flying at high speed. In effect, it is as powerful as many traditional ground cameras. More powerful video processing supports H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps, both with a 100Mbps bitrate. Excellent optical performance, sensors and processors ensure everything is captured with high dynamic range and more image detail needed for advanced post-production.
Phantom 4 Advanced+ is equipped with the integrated upgraded Lightbridge HD video transmission system with a maximum video transmission range of 4.3mi (7km)*. A 5.5inch 1080p screen integrated with the Phantom 4 Advanced+ offers 1000 cd/m2 of brightness, more than twice as bright as conventional smart devices, which means a visibility even in bright direct sunlight. A five-hour battery life makes the Phantom 4 Advanced+ a complete aerial imaging solution. The built-in DJI GO 4 app allow you to live stream, edit and share your aerial videos and photos instantly.
*Unobstructed, free of interference, when FCC compliant.
Equipped with the FlightAutonomy system made up of 5 vision sensors, dual-band satellite positioning (GPS and GLONASS), ultrasonic rangefinders and redundant sensors, Phantom 4 Advanced is able to hover precisely in places without GPS and fly in complex environments. The dual forward vision sensors can see as far as 30m out in front, and enable auto brake, hover or detour in front of obstacles within 15-meter range.
Draw is a brand new technology for waypoint control. Simply draw a route on screen and the Phantom 4 Advanced will move in that direction while keeping its altitude locked. This allows the pilot to focus on camera control and enables more complex shots. There are two Draw modes that can be used in different scenarios.
Forward: The aircraft follows the route at a constant speed with the camera facing in the direction of flight.
Free: The aircraft only moves along the route when instructed. In this mode, the camera can face in any direction during a flight.
Following fast-moving objects can be very challenging, but advanced image recognition algorithms used by the Phantom 4 Advanced allow it to recognize and track the object while keeping it in frame. This new algorithm also recognizes more subjects, from people to vehicles to animals, and will adjust its flight dynamics accordingly, ensuring smoother shots.
Pilots can now choose between: Trace – Follow behind or in front of a subject, avoiding obstacles automatically Profile – Fly alongside a subject at a variety of angles to get profile shots of the subject. Spotlight – Keep the camera trained on a subject while the aircraft flies almost anywhere.
Fly in any direction visible on-screen with a simple tap. Tap anywhere on-screen to smoothly adjust the direction of flight while automatically avoiding obstacles* and tap the screen again or use control sticks to change direction. A new AR route functions shows that aircraft’s real-time flight direction for reference as its route is adjusted. As it can be difficult to control altitude, course, speed and camera pitch simultaneously using joysticks, TapFly Free allows a pilot to set the direction of flight, allowing them to turn the Phantom 4 Advanced or tilt the gimbal as required without changing the direction of flight. In total, there are now two TapFly modes:
TapFly Forward – Tap to fly in the selected direction. TapFly Free – Lock the forward direction of the Phantom without locking the camera direction allowing it to turn as its flies.
*Obstacle Avoidance is not available with TapFly free.
In its Return to Home mode, the Phantom 4 Advanced can automatically choose the best route to return home depending on environmental conditions. It records its route as it flies, allowing it to return along the same route avoiding obstacles if the control signal is disconnected.
Based on its altitude at the time of disconnection, the Phantom 4 Advanced is able to adjust its flight path to avoid obstacles it has seen during its flight. At takeoff, the Phantom 4 Advanced will record the scene below and compare its recording with what it sees as it returns, for more precise landing. It can also detect the ground to see whether there is a suitable spot for landing. If any obstacles are found, or there is water on the ground, it will alert the pilot and hover at an appropriate height, helping the aircraft to land more safely.
Using Gesture Mode, selfies can be captured easily using a few gestures without the remote controller. Advanced computer vision technology allows the Phantom4 Advanced to take instructions through gestures. The subject simply lifts their arms when facing the camera and the aircraft will recognize this movement by locking on and placing the subject in the center of the frame. When ready for a photo, the subject holds their arms out to signal the aircraft. A three second countdown will begin, giving time to strike a pose, allowing moments to be captured without the remote control.
The Phantom 4 Advanced features dual compass modules and dual IMU units, making it more reliable. Compasses and IMUs are important sensors to ensure a stable flight and the Phantom 4 Advanced constantly compares the data it receives through both pairs. This data is run through advanced algorithms to check accuracy and any inaccurate data is simply discarded without affecting flight, keeping flight steady and reliable.
Professional aerial managing benefits from longer flight times. The Phantom 4 Advanced has a maximum flight time of 30 minutes, providing more time in the air to capture the perfect shot. The DJI GO 4 app shows battery lifetime and calculates remaining flight time according to distance traveled and more. It will give alerts when it reaches a minimum safe amount required for a safe journey back to the takeoff point. An advanced battery management system is also in place to prevent overcharging and over draining. When placed in longer term storage, batteries will discharge power to maintain good health.
Using the DJI GO 4 app, a large number of intelligent Flight Modes are available. It also provides access to full manual camera controls, including ISO, aperture, shutter speed, image formats, and more. Any changes in DJI GO 4 will appear almost instantly on-screen. Vital flight data and video transmission status are easy to check in the app, further enhancing control efficiency and convenience.
The Phantom 4 Advanced's uprated camera shoots 4K/60 fps video at a bitrate of 100 Mbps and stills at up to 20 megapixels. It can be used with an optional integrated monitor for even more reliable transmission. Operators are empowered with a new suite of Intelligent Flight Modes.The maximum flight speed of the Phantom 4 Advanced is slightly higher than the Phantom 4 when flying in P-mode. The maximum flight time is extended to 30 minutes, the transmission range is extended to 7 km, and the obstacle sensing range is increased from 15 m to 30 m.
The Phantom 4 Advanced inherits most of the functions of the Phantom 4 Pro. However, in order to increase affordability, unlike the Phantom 4 Pro the Phantom 4 Advanced does not have rear vision sensors and two infrared sensors in its FlightAutonomy system. Also, its remote controller does not support the 5.8 GHz frequency band and Tapfly Backward has been removed.
Propellers, Intelligent Flight Batteries, chargers, power cables and micro USB cables can be used with both the Phantom 4 and Phantom 4 Advanced.
We're not planning to release additional color options for the P4A. Currently, only the P4P and P4P+ will have Obsidian color versions.
The Phantom 4 Advanced camera is able to record UHD 4K (4096X2160) at 60 fps, at a maximum bitrate of 100 Mbps using the H.265 codec. It also allows you to capture still images while filming. The Phantom 4 Advanced camera sensor is also larger than the Phantom 4 camera sensor, ensuring clearer images.
The mechanical shutter eliminates rolling shutter distortion, which can occur when capturing images of fast moving subjects with an electric shutter
Yes, it does. Tap a point on the display to focus at that point after switching from metering to focus mode. Autofocus can also be triggered by half-pressing the shutter button but only with the Plus RC, before fully pressing the shutter to capture an image. Focus can be set between 1 m and infinity.
The Phantom 4 Advanced's camera has a wide-angle lens specially designed for aerial photography, with an aperture range of F2.8 to F11 and a 24 mm equivalent focal length. It’s also equipped with a mechanical shutter and auto focus support.
The obstacle sensing range of the Phantom 4 Advanced front vision sensor has been increased to 30 m.
You can do a quick vision system calibration via the DJI GO 4 app, or do an advanced calibration by launching the DJI Assistant 2 in your computer.
Compared to the Phantom 4 Pro, the Phantom 4 Advanced remote controller doesn't support the 5.8 GHz frequency band. The Phantom 4 Advanced+ remote controller has a built-in screen.
Currently, the Phantom 4 Advanced controller is not compatible with other Phantom 4 Series aircraft.
The new Phantom 4 Advanced Intelligent Flight Modes include Draw, Gesture, an upgraded TapFly, Tripod, Terrain Follow and an upgraded ActiveTrack.
The maximum flight speed of the Phantom 4 Advanced in P-mode is 14 m/s.
