The Phantom 4 Pro+ is an intelligent camera drone from DJI which offers a 3-axis-stabilized gimbal camera. The number of pixels held by this camera is 20 MP with a 1" CMOS sensor capability to shoot up to 4K/60fps video and also photo bursts at up to 14 fps. There has been an update in the hull from its last version, Phantom 4 which now features an alloy of magnesium that is constructed to increase the rigidity and reduce the weight. The system of flight autonomy adds a dual rear-vision sensor along with the sensing of infrared so that the obstacle sensing can be done for a total of five directions and avoidance for four directions. The primary feature of Phantom 4 Pro+ is high-luminance display that comes integrated into remote controller.
Gimbal Camera with 1-inch CMOS Sensor
The onboard camera accompanies a 1-inch 20-megapixel CMOS sensor for the Phantom model. It also has a custom-engineered lens which is made of 8 components that are arranged in 7 groups. A mechanical aperture is boasted by the camera which eliminates the distortion of rolling shutter that occurs while capturing images of objects that are moving fast or when they are flying at high speed along with a mechanical focus.
1-inch CMOS Sensor
The next most important thing apart from the number of pixels for the image quality is the sensor size as a larger sensor has a dynamic range, boosted low light performance and better signal-to-noise ratio. The presence of 1" 20MP CMOS sensor in Phantom 4 Pro+ is nearly 4 times the size of Phantom 4's 1/2.3" sensor. This sensor generally takes help of larger pixels, has maximum ISO that goes up to 12,800 and an increased contrast.
H.264 and H.265 4K Video Recording
The processing done by the powerful video supports H.265 4K at 30 fps or H.264 4K videos at 60 fps, both are recorded at 100 Mbps bitrate. The advanced processors and sensors of this camera make sure that everything is captured with added details of image and its data is available when needed for direction in post-production.
The video processing system is enhanced which allows the capturing of video in cinema- and production- optimized DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) at 60 fps with a bitrate of 100 Mbps. The H.265 video codec at 30 fps in 4K resolution is also supported by Phantom 4 Pro+. for any particular or given bitrate, H.265 has the capability to double the amount of processing for image as compared to H.264 which resulted significantly in enhancing the image quality from a more effective and efficient compression. One should do the recording in high dynamic range D-log mode so as to make the most of this data of image for color grading.
Lens with high resolution-
The camera of Phantom 4 Pro+ has an aerial-optimized that has a wide-angle lens of f/2.8 with a 24 mm equivalent focal length. The camera features a total of eight elements, two aspherical that are arranged in seven groups being fit into smaller and more compact frame.
