Answer: Mavic 2 system is not capable of capturing 4K @60fps however it is capable of capturing 4K @30fps which many professionals rely on daily.

Q#5 Why does the Mavic Pro have 2x digital zoom and the Mavic 2 Pro does not?
Answer: Because Mavic 2 Pro was DJI answering the request for increased image capabilities in a compact and foldable platform. Mavic 2 Pro utilizes a 20-megapixel 1” sensor camera co-engineered with world renowned camera manufacturer, Hasselblad. For professional photographers and videographer, Mavic 2 Pro is the perfect choice.

Q#6 What is the minimum/max Tripod mode speed?
Answer: T-mode (Tripod): T-mode is based on P-mode and the flight speed is limited, which makes the aircraft more stable during shooting. The maximum flight speed, maximum ascend speed and maximum descend speed are 1m/s. Intelligent Flight Modes are not available in T-mode.


Q#7 The Mavic Pro only has Terrain Follow upwards. Does the Mavic 2 have terrain follow downwards?
Answer: No

P-mode
Active track mode
Quickshots
Tripod mode
Smart Return to home
Failsafe return to home
Low battery return to home
Answer: All the modes, but it just measure the position above the sensor.

Q# 10 Is there anyway to map Cruise Control an option available in Hyperlapse mode to either C1, C2, or Dpad for when not in hyperlapse mode?
Answer: No
Q#11 Will Mavic 2 see the return of missing features like; Precision Landing, D-Cine/Color, CourseLock, Terrain Follow up +down (MP unable to follow terrain downwards), and Fixed Wing mode?
Answer: Precision landing will be added in the future. The others will not.


Q#12 Will Narrow Sensing a RC mappable function seen on the Phantom 4 Pro make it to the Mavic 2 with its addition of side and top sensors?
Answer: No narrow sensing mode for Mavic 2 and we cannot determine it yet if we can update it to the near future.

I'd like to know if upward sensor works in RTH modes (and if so, what does it DO if it detects, avoid or just stop?)
The manual doesnt mention it so id guess it ascends into an obstacle just as before.
