Hi Rob, it is correct, both Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom support up to 3840×2160 resolution. May you refer to the specs on the official website https://www.dji.com/mavic-2/info#specs. Thank you for your attention.

How come a new Pro version of the Mavic, have less resolution? Unfortunately I think my Mavic 2 Pro is shipped, so I will think of returning it when it arrives.

I took for granted a new version of the drone should have at least the same resolution - not less. Will it be rectified with new firmware, or is this locked forever?

Not having C4K is a major issue, since the other whole range of DJI drones have it, and ground cameras, too. So if you want to combine footage the M2P is often not an option for cinematographers.

Hi Rob, Mavic 2 Pro also has an excellent camera, though it doesn't support C4K, we haven't received the news about the update for the camera. If there is an update, there will be a release on the official website. Thank you so much for your attention.

What's an excellent? Does it do C4k!? It's very interesting that DJI left this out of v2 when there is a 1" inch sensor and a hasselblad upgrade.  I have a mavic air and it's reasonable that it doesn't do C4k but a Mavic Pro V2, no. I'm going to be selling my mavic air and getting a Parrot Anafi that shoots in DCI 4096 x 2160 and doesn't need a giant charger since the battery can be charged directly with a cable. I'll let DJI catch up and then maybe I'll have a look again.

If it’s anaffi that your going to substitute for M2P, then I don’t think your really that serious about filming,

The anafi shoots in MP4 (H.264).

DJI really confused me with the Mavic Pro 2. Sure, the Hasselblad camera itself is better, and H265 is better than H264, 10-bit gives more color range than 8-bit making it more space for grading. But why on earth then don't support 4K DCI if this drone is meant to be serious about filming?

Sure, I can scale up the M2P video sideways, cropping top/bottom. No problem, it's technically doable. But scaling up the images makes it loose quality. So even if the camera is better, working with 4K DCI will take away some of it's quality. DJI takes 2 steps forward and 1 step back as it is now with M2P. Hopefully it will open up via a firmware upgrade, but so far no clear information about that.

Why do you think that?

I presume it’s professional work you are looking to do, there are many better options than anaffi out there, if it was just C4k you were looking at and nothing else then why not choose anaffi in the first place, you would have saved yourself a right few quid in the first place or even Mavic Pro great value now and a much better craft than anaffi .

I'm just doing some short films right now and I want the weight to be as little as possible. The anafi weighs half as much as the MP does and it does pretty much the same thing video wise. The log profile for the anafi is also good offering some pretty flat images to work with. The image quality is fine for me and the DCI means I don't have to scale my images with my cameras at all. If the M2P would've offered C4k I might've done it but still it's twice as heavy and more bulky than the anafi.

LOL, you can't shoot HDR in DCI mode. I'm gonna go with the Mavic Pro Platinum.

are People are really thinking of returning their drone because they're "Cinematographers"  and don't shoot in anything but C4K... LMAO... If you really need to your 16:9 to match C4K because everything else is shot in C4K just upscale your 16:9 footage by 6.7%

Literally no one is going to tell the difference between C4K and 16:9 blown up by 6.7% to match the timeline. This sounds like blaming other things for being bad at storytelling. Especially when the difference between looking at a Mavic pro and Mavic 2 pro is night and day in optical sharpness.

@Maverick
Upscaling do show, more or less depending on the scene and the other cameras you might need to match footage to.

If you upscale M2P Pro to a 4KC timeline matching 4KC video from a low quality camera with cheap lenses  - you probably won't see much difference (but some). On the other hand, if you upscale M2P Pro to a 4KC timeline matching 4KC video from a high quality camera with good lenses, it will show more clearly the difference.

The question is if the customer can accept it or not, and that can vary.

What a new M2P owner feels about their new drone also depends on what he/her mainly shoot with the drone. Are you a hobbyist that upgrade from the old Mavic - sure, M2P is a huge step forward. Are you an Inspire user that want a M2P for filming from difficult areas where its small size makes it easy to carry with you, it might feel the M2P is not as good as it could have been.

The Mavic 2 Pro is not a "real" pro camera. You can't compare it to X5S or X7 or Alexas, but it is good for its price. But, the lack of 4KC is a step backwards. 4KC have been a standard on DJI drones for many years, until now. So with 4KC added, it would have been a better drone.

You should not try to judge users - we all use our drone for different things, and we might have different needs than you.
