Image sensor size is a very important factor when it comes to the overall quality of an image, larger sensors usually have higher resolutions, improved dynamic range, and perform better in low light environments. The Mavic 3 is the first foldable drone that comes with an MFT sensor, this is a huge upgrade to the Mavic 2 Pro and to all other consumer drones.
With its large image sensor, the camera can capture 20MP images in 12-bit RAW for true HDR images. Additionally, with features like hyperlight, adjustable aperture and a high ISO range, this camera performs well in any type of lighting conditions.
While not as good in features as the Mavic 3, the Phantom 4 Pro V2 comes equipped with a very good camera that has a 1-inch CMOS sensor and a mechanical shutter.
